hemp almond

This is where your milk comes from. There is no editing or guise to mislead. I took this photo, I didn’t get it from an ‘extreme’ animal rights website or 'fake news’ article. These are the udders of a cow leaving the dairy industry for the slaughter of the meat industry.

These are the same udders that have been producing milk for you for the past 3-5 years… Gross, right?

Now imagine a cup full of almonds, soy, hemp, cashews, hazelnuts, rice… These are the same goodies that produce all the delicious and healthier plant-based milks out there.

Seriously people… Right now, my goal is to spread awareness. This is just gross. No one should be drinking cow milk without knowing where it really comes from.

anonymous asked:

How do you become vegan?

I guess how depends on why you’re going. Either way though go at your own speed. If you stress yourself out you’re most likely gonna fail. Can cut things out slowly or drop everything at once. Remember why you want to go vegan.

I know there’s more products outside the us, so feel free to add some. It’s like 4:30am so i’ll probably have to reread this and edit it later.

Classes are finally over so I am celebrating this morning with one of my favourite breakfast: OATMEAL 🍓the weather is getting warmer, the snow has melted & everyone seems to be enjoying spring’s beginning 💐🌸 for the blueberry oatmeal you will need to bring to a boil 1 cup of oatmeal, 2 cups of water, a handful of blueberries, 1 teaspoon of chia seeds & agave nectar and a drop of vanilla extract; to top it off i had no blueberries left so i opted for a tablespoon of peanut butter ☺️ hemp hearts & almonds 🎈

WAKE UP SMOOTHIE CUPS

Creamy breakfast smoothie cups to give you energy for the day!

Gluten free | Vegan | Organic | Fructose-Free

Ingredients (makes 2)
1 cup of fair-trade cold brew coffee
1 cup of non-dairy milk (almond, hemp or coconut)
¼ cup of ground chia seeds
1 pinch of cinnamon
1 tbsp coconut butter
1 tsp of maca powder
1 tbsp toasted coconut flakes

Method:
1. Blend ingredients until smooth, the ground chia seeds should create a thick consistency, add more if required.
2. Serve and top with extra cinnamon & coconut flakes
3. Enjoy!

Let me feed you: Chia Hemp Pudding with Açaí Sorbet, PB, Macadamia Nuts + Frozen Blueberries.

You have to really love hemp to appreciate this pudding. It has a very distinct flavor. Many folks who are new to this lifestyle may not like it. But it’s oh-so good for you. And once you get the hang of introducing new nourishing foods into your regimen things like hemp begin to taste gooooood.

Chia Hemp Pudding

Ingredients:

1 cup spring water
¼ cup chia seeds
3 tbsp hemp seeds
1 tbsp almond butter
1-2 tbsp maple syrup (depending on how sweet you like it)

Blend the water, hemp seeds, almond butter and syrup until frothy. Pour hemp mylk into a bowl and add chia seeds. Whisk until incorporated and allow to sit for 5 minutes. Whisk again and transfer to a serving cup. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.

For açaí ice cream I simply blended 2 scoops (about 1 cup) of Açaí Roots sorbet with 1 tbsp of peanut butter. Next, I folded in about ½ cup of frozen blueberries. I then topped the açaí sorbet over the chia pudding and sprinkled chopped macadamias.

Get ready for pea milk. It doesn’t taste like peas and it’s not even green.
Milk made from peas has more protein than other alternative milks, and it doesn't contain common allergens.
By https://www.facebook.com/maura.judkis

It’s never been easier to avoid dairy, thanks to an ever-expanding array of plant-based milks: Rice, soy, hemp, oat, coconut, almond, macadamia, hazelnut, cashew.

But some people can’t drink some of those milks due to nut or soy allergies. Some aren’t good for the environment: Many words have been written about the water that almond milk production wastes. Women may be concerned about the estrogen-like compounds in soy. And alternative milks can be lacking in certain vitamins and nutrients, like protein.

Enter pea milk, the newest nondairy beverage on the block. It’s vegan, nut free, soy free, lactose free and gluten free. It’s better for the environment than almond milk. And it has more protein and calcium than other alternative milks.

Been craving warm cooked meals for breakfast since its been so cold in the morning!

✖Sliced 3 potatoes & coated them in sweet paprika + cracked black pepper, also cut up some kent pumpkin (my fav, so sweet!!) & coated it in mixed herbs + cracked black pepper 👉🏼 In a 220*C preheated oven for 30mins, flip them, then back in for an additional 20 mins! + BBQ sauce on the side! 

✖Salad: baby spinach, alfafa, avocado, almonds, pepitas, hemp seeds & a dressing (not pictured) made by mixing vegan mayo, whole grain mustard, lemon juice & @thesourcebulkfoods maple syrup 👌🏼 Best dressing everrr, seriously get on it asap, I use it for cold pasta salads too! 🍃✨
