Vegan Diet Plan
The scientific evidence is compelling. The recommendations are clear replacing animal products with vegetables and other health-supporting plant foods and reducing overall fat should be your first line of defense against heart disease and many forms of cancer. As Dr. William Harris, in his classic book, The Scientific Basis of Vegetarianism, states, The vegan (plant-based) diet, extolled by its advocates for at least 150 years as a cancer preventive strategy, is the logical end point of the dietary recommendations, now made by scientific organizations, to reduce animal food consumption.
- Some nuts are too gritty (even after 7 or more minutes of high speed blending) to be good in vegan ice creams that are based on nut cream. The best nuts for making ice creams are pine nuts, pecans, and walnuts. Nuts that are too gritty to be used in large quantities (although as a small proportion can work) are almonds, macadamia nuts, hazelnuts, and brazil nuts. Sometimes, nut butters can work as a base for ice creams if they are ground very well by the manufacture, there is very little grit, and it can make a pretty smooth ice cream almond butter is a good example of a nut butter that can work well in ice creams.
Anyone who is vegan or vegetarian has already discovered some of the fascinating and delectable things that can be done with vegetables. A meat-and-potatoes person may need a little more convincing that it's possible to fill an empty stomach and enjoy the meal with no meat present. This section includes a few entrees that will convince anyone that meat isn't needed to satisfy the tummy at mealtime.
- You will notice that in most all of my dressing, I use either flax oil or help oil I do this because these two oils contain omega-3 essential fatty acids which are difficult to obtain from other sources in a vegan diet these oils are also not good to cook with because they breakdown if cooked at all. You can substitute other oils in place of these oils (e.g., olive oil or sesame oil) if you don't have or don't want to use flax oil or hemp oil._
VEGAN DIET COMPONENTS I believe that a balanced vegan diet should include 5 components Pine nuts are small tear-drop-shaped nuts with significant amounts of vitamin A, thiamin, riboflavin, and niacin. They puree well in water to make a very creamy milk. Pine nuts are one of the best (if not the best) nut for making rich vegan ice cream. NOTE The down side is that some batches of pine nuts can be rather smoky, and this smoky flavor is not desirable in ice cream (especially ones with subtle flavoring such as vanilla or peach). I have been able to successfully use smoky pine nuts in ice creams that contain other strong flavors (e.g., in an amaretto ice cream or cherry-chocolate chunk ice cream). I am not sure if the smokiness comes from the processing of the pine nuts, or is just a characteristic of some pine nuts, but in any case, I advise cooks to check their pine nuts, and if they are too smoky, I would be hesitant about using them to make ice creams. In general, smoky pine nuts work...
Vegetable stocks, which do not include meat products, are an important addition to many healthful dishes. In addition, vegetable stock forms the base for many vegetarian and vegan dishes. The basic ingredients of a vegetable stock are vegetables, herbs, spices, and water. Proportions and kinds of vegetables will vary with different recipes. Vegetable stock needs to be simmered only 30 to 45 minutes.
The vegan diet is the most restrictive form of vegetarianism.Vegans eat plant products only. All animal products,including dairy products and eggs, are off limits. Even foods that might sound safe are off limits to the strictest vegans. Examples of such foods include honey, because it comes from bees, and cane sugar, which may be refined with the use of animal products (more on this subject on p. 661).When preparing a vegetarian menu, the chef should keep in mind that a menu appropriate to a vegan diet has the broadest appeal because it can be eaten by all categories of vegetarians. The major nutritional concern of a vegetarian diet is getting enough protein. Dairy products, eggs, and fish supply adequate amounts of good-quality protein, but vegans must plan their diets carefully in order to get adequate protein. Some plant products, such as grains, nuts, and dried beans, contain proteins. Note that in the standard Food The first two of these pairings are important in vegan diets.The...

Vegan (VEE-gan) A person who consumes a plant-based diet, that is, a dietary regimen that avoids animal products of any kind. This lifestyle choice often includes the avoidance of other animal products such as leather and silk. Before you say that the the term Mainstream Vegan is an oxymoron, consider that the market for meat alternatives, particularly those that are soy-based, has exploded. Today, soyfood items such as burgers, breakfast sausages, beverages, snack bars, and baked goods have moved out of small, niche health food stores into mainstream supermarkets. According to industry analyst Frost & Sullivan, the meat alternatives market generated 622 million in 2000. Manufacturers' sales of soyfoods alone are projected to top 6.9 billion in 2005, according to a study conducted by Business Communications Co., Inc., of Norwalk, Connecticut.
Most national airlines, given notice, will offer gluten-free meals, non-lactose meals, and vegan meals, which are free of any animal products so are essentially meat, dairy, and egg free. You could also request a fresh fruit platter. However, any slipup on a long haul flight could leave you hungry so bring some safe food of your own as well. If you have a severe food allergy, take no risks and eat only food that you have prepared yourself.
RUTH'S VEGAN CURRIED DRIED PEAS Cook soaked, dried peas for 40 minutes (be careful not to let them boil over or scorch) in water that's a thumbjoint above pea level, adding more if necessary. Then add a good jolt of curry powder and I t. of either cinnamon (for a sweet taste) or cumin (for an East Indian taste), and stir up the mixture. Add more water if needed, and cook, mashing occasionally, until it's a mush-puree consistency. Now serve as a cracker spread or over rice with chopped tomatoes and onions. FREEZING Once a day's batch is shelled, I lower a sieveful of peas into boiling water in a kettle. I leave it there until the water returns to a boil. A minute or two later, the peas have all changed color. That means they're done blanching. I lift them out, cool under running water, and pour into a bowl. I refill my sieve with peas and put them in the boiling water. While the water is in the process of coming to a boil again, I package the first batch for the freezer. (To freeze...

(A) Representation of the 3 main components of a vegan meal and the inclusion of some nutritionally dense leafy greens such as kale or collards which are an important source of calcium and iron in a vegan diet. For example, these can be served as a side dish (i.e., briefly sauteed) or as a side salad (i.e., raw with dressing). Generally, I do not feel it is a good idea to serve fruit (which is the only other main component of a vegan diet) with a normal meal because fruit is easily digested, and is not really suitable for digesting with other foods (like grains and protein foods). I think it is best eaten by itself.
RUTH'S VEGAN KASHA Serve cooked kasha with chopped vegetables that have been sauteed in some vegetable stock with a dash of tamari and favorite herbs and spices. Recipes for Buckwheat Flour Molasses is sometimes used in buckwheat recipes to improve the color of the product, since without it the breads are a blah gray color, but I don't mind the color and love the taste. Always shine your griddle with a bit of fat before starting, and drop batter by tablespoonfuls to make dollar-sized pancakes. They're good with butter and honey, sour cream or what have you. Any kind of buckwheat griddle cake makes a fine quick lunch as well as a breakfast. All buckwheat pancakes tend to be doughy adding even just a trace of wheat flour helps counteract that. W BUCKWHEAT ROLL Sift together 3 c. buckwheat flour and I t. salt. Combine with I 'A c. boiling water or enough boiling water to make a manageable, workable dough. You've got to make this recipe quickly while the dough is still hot otherwise, it...
Tortillas This unleavened bread can be made out of all kinds of flours ground hominy (masa), cornmeal, wheat flour, etc. (For a masa tortilla recipe, see Hominy Flour (Masa) Recipes under Corn. ) It's the shape of the end product rather than the ingredients that makes a tortilla a tortilla. If you want to read the best book in the world about making tortillas, see The Tortilla Book by Diana Kennedy. My vegan reader Ruth from Bonaire says that if you use masa to make tortillas, you don't need shortening.
