Cheese, seeds, and a lecture.

Yesterday night I put some cashews and pine nuts in water to soak overnight, so today I could make nut cheese and cheescake! They are both ready to roll now. I think I'll let the nut cheese age for 2 or 3 days, and we will eat the cheesecake tomorrow. I can't wait. 

Mom borrowed the gardening book The Zero Mile Diet today, and also bought some organic seeds to plant! We like West Coast Seeds. They're totally organic, and local! So my mum got the idea we could actually go and visit where they harvest their seeds - it's a short drive from our home.

 Everything in the title is right.

The post today is short but - if you take the time to watch this video - informative! It's a "lecture" (I don't like using that word) on why you might want to consider a vegan diet. It should be a more popular video because it's one of the best I've heard, to be honest. 

The guy is easy to listen to, understandable, uses simple logic that no one can really debate, and doesn't try to preach. He lays down the FACTS, and you can do with them what you will. 

This actually convinced my previously vegetarian friend to try veganism! And several other people have told me it got them seriously rethinking their diet choices. Woot! Open minds!

(after the 1st minute it gets interesting)

This guy stole all my best points though >=(

If you're vegan already, watch this and remember why =) If you aren't, watch this and learn about the effects of your lifestyle and ask yourself if you are comfortable with them. Show this to everyone you care about! 

I really believe the key to success is knowledge - pretty obvious huh? So success on a vegan diet is the same! Get informed. Get knowledgeable. Most importantly - OPEN YOUR MIND. Leave all convictions at the door. The facts are out there and they will help you see that a vegan diet is in fact more sane than a non-vegetarian one.  
Vegans are the NORMAL ONES! =)

Please - just watch the video. And have an amazing day!
