LAVENDER-ROSEMARY-LEMON SHORTBREAD

These little cookies may not look like much, but they’re seriously some of the best ones I ever had. Improvised the recipe but here goes:


Ingredients

- 4,5 dl / 2 cups flour
- 200 g dairyfree butter/margarine/other veggie fat
- 0,5 dl / 0,25 cups white sugar
- 0,5 dl / 0,25 cups unrefined sugar
- Zest from organic lemon
- Dried lavender
- Dried rosemary
- A little maple syrup

Instructions

Mix all ingredients except the syrup in a food processor until it’s one big lump of dough.

Roll the dough to a cylinder shape (see pics), cover in plastic and let it rest in the fridge for half an hour.

Turn on the oven to 175 degrees C.

Cut the dough cylinder into 0,5 cm thick discs (well obv you can make them whatever shape you like). Spread them out evenly on a baking tray with some space in between.

Brush the cookies with a little syrup, sprinkle some rosemary on them, and bake in the middle of the oven for like… 8 minutes (keep an eye on them, it’ll differ depending on the oven etc).

Now you’ll never want to eat anything else ever again!

Vegan Pets, a PSA.

Listen, I don’t give a fuck who this offends.

If you’re offended by me telling the truth about obligate carnivores, good; cry me a fucking river of tears and drown in it.

By making your dog, cat, fox, ferret, snake or any carnivorous fucking animal vegan, you are going to kill it in the end, guarantee.

Humans can be vegan without much trouble, that is because humans are omnivorous, your tabby is not. She’s a carnviore, her claws and teeth are equipped to tear shit apart.

Calm down keyboard warrior, rest your fingers for just a moment. I have nothing against the concept and practice of veganism, hell- my girlfriend is transitioning vegan from pescatarian, and I’ve been meaning to learn how to cook vegan/vegetarian, just for her if we do end up having a future together.

But obligate carnivores are not omnivores (duh.) and you forcing your political agendas on evolution is going to backfire.

Most carnivores (Take for instance, your cat, ferret, dog) have short digestive tracks and intestines, this is to quickly dispense of rotting meat much faster, so that it does not promote bacterial growth. Herbivores have longer, bigger GI tracts to allow for more nutrient-absorption from digested-plant matter.

And omnivores, such as ourselves, are cozy right in the middle.

You cannot change this, this is what is inside your animal, this is it’s body, this is what it’s millions of years of evolution lead up to: a carnviore.

Not done here etheir! Hey, did you know that animals forced onto vegan diets lose hair, weight and eventually eye-sight from taurine deficiency?

Really! Wow, who would’ve known trying to mess with the course nature wouldn’t work out eh?

Ever here of Jumanji? The sweet little fennec fox’ who is losing all of his fur, developing skin conditions and going blind. Because his owners believes that “uwu all animals r equal!”.

Her animal is malnourished and wasting away infront of her, yet she turns a blind eye in lieu of her “heroic animal activism”, which is ironically doing quite the opposite.

So, TL;DR:

Want a “vegan” animal? Get a rabbit. Don’t fuck with biology.

Broccoli salad, made using a recipe my friend @katlina.grace gave me. I made it for my family at a party and they loved it. All it is, is 5 cups broccoli, 1 shredded carrot, 1 cup sunflower seeds, ยฝ cup red onion, 1 cup vegan mayo, and 2 tbsp red wine vinegar. Plus salt and pepper to taste. (It tastes better the longer it sits in the fridge).
