At this time of year we are reminded of the many blessings we enjoy and encouraged to show compassion for others.  For vegans, this includes non-human individuals and Mother Earth. The Holidays are as much about feasting and compassion as they are about gift giving and this amazing roast is as easy to put together as it is absolutely delicious!

Hosting a meatless meal this year will withhold support for the cruel animal products industry, and save money while saving the planet. Factory Farming, Unnatural, Unhealthy and Unsustainable …read more of Fabulous, Festive Holiday Roast ~ Economical, Eco-Friendly and Compassionate! here

I have a new obsession… Homemade soy yogurt!

Making yogurt is easy and delicious and like all DIY foods you make in your own kitchen… you know everything that went into it and it just couldn’t be fresher.

Soy yogurt is a plant-based food and is planet friendly by its very nature. Even the culture we use is vegan. When we choose DIY, we are avoiding packaging by decreasing waste pollution at the source.

In addition to reducing the proliferation of landfill package waste, when we eliminate waste before it has been created we minimize resources used in the production and delivery of goods. …read more of Make Delicious Dairy-Free Yogurt ~ Good For You and the Planet! here

Connections with others are truly important. Celebrating over a lovely meal is a great way to keep those connections thriving; however, entertaining can take a bite out of the budget.

Tips to entertain with style, affordably

Send electronic invitations for free with easy management of RSVPs at paperlesspost.com or evite.com. Guests shine when they are meeting new people so encourage invitees to bring a friend or two along.

Think natural . . . natural colors and natural foods. Use fabric tablecloths or a roll of tan craft paper. Have children color on the paper or write guests’ names at each place.  Instead of flowers, consider green cuttings from trees and shrubs in several small vases or canning jars. …read more of Party for Less here

The Chambers Family has been farming on the same fertile land in Iowa near the Minnesota Border for 131 years.

Samuel Chambers, a veteran of the Civil War and his wife, Elenora settled just outside Corwith Iowa in 1883.   The couple had traveled from Ohio and lived in the upper portion of the barn they built on the land until a house could be built. Wild hay was the cash crop at this time.

The family built a granary in which one room was lathed and plastered to serve as a school.  Some students traveled long distances and would stay at the Chambers house, if a storm came in.  …read more of Chambers Farms’ Outstanding Harvest and Unique Roasted Soy Flour here

Make Fresh Delicious Soymilk for Pennies in Just 20 Minutes!

Drinking soymilk is the quick and easy way to get the goodness of soy into your body by replacing unhealthy cow’s milk in coffee, cereal, smoothies and protein drinks!

Why Soymilk?

Humans have taken up the dubious habit of drinking the milk of another species. Cow’s milk is an excellent source of nutrition for calves and will multiply its weight 8 times over in 9 months. Unlike humans, once calves or any other mammalian species are weaned they never drink milk again.

Cow’s milk contains on average three times the protein of human milk and creates metabolic disturbances in humans that have detrimental bone health consequences.

Most cow’s milk has measurable quantities of herbicides, pesticides, up to 200 times the safe levels dioxins and as many as 52 powerful antibiotics, in addition to the blood, pus, feces, bacteria and viruses. It is a slow poison. …read more of Make Fresh Delicious Soymilk for Pennies in Just 20 Minutes! here
