I adapted this from Kris Carr’s Crazy Sexy Kitchen, I made a few changes not many because it’s perfect the way it is, I just didn’t use as much onion powder & salt.
Remove kale ribs (save for juicing or just eat whole as crunchy snacks -- if you have a dog they love these). Tear the leaves into large pieces, approximately the size of your palm. Wash thoroughly and dry.
Drain cashews. In a high-speed blender, blend with the remaining ingredients. The final product should be smooth and creamy and resemble a thick dressing. In a large mixing bowl, thoroughly coat the kale pieces with the cream.
On a dehydrator tray place coated kale, leaving enough room for air to circulate around them.
Dehydrate overnight until kale pieces are crisp and light. Trust me these wont last longer than a week because you will want to eat them all they are so good.
*This recipe took up my full 9-tray dehydrator if you cannot accommodate all the chips, split the recipe in 1/2 or do this in batches.
I am getting tired of having false news reports popping up in my google alerts declaring Beyonce is going vegan for Coachella. Beyonce isn’t vegan. She is plant based. Which is a diet. Vegan is a moral imperative, if animals matter we don’t harm them in anyway, we protect them at all cost.
Someone claiming Veganism when they have no intention of protecting the animals at all, triggers vegans and frustrates the animals because they literally thought you weren't gonna eat them again.
People on plant based diets do it for their health, and the animals they save are just a bonus. The environmental impact of being on a plant based diet is also a bonus. This is short lived most people that go on plant based diets for health end up doing it only for a short time. Those that learn about the animals and cannot turn back to eating them again become vegans. This is why my coaching always involves teaching my clients about the animals, the environment and health impacts of a vegan diet.
Beyonce wears fur. Beyonce eats animals when she's not claiming she's “vegan”. I am angry at Beyonce for being so irresponsible with her words, for not taking into consideration the animals that are slaughtered every day, for not even using her celebrity to acknowledge veganism in the right way, instead she's selling out. Using the wrong word to describe her diet is complete ignorance and she owes the vegan community an apology.
This is something simple and it is this she's not vegan, and this is why every VEGAN in the world is so angry and frustrated with claims that Beyonce is vegan. Beyonce is trying to sell veganism as a diet, a trend a fad, as a cheap assembly line product for her and to me that is insulting, sick and disgusting. (Insert cursing here).
Stella McCartney daughter of Paul McCartney is working with PETA and investment firm Stray Dog Capital to launch a biodesign challenge for college students throughout the United States. The purpose of this challenge is to develop a vegan wool. 30 colleges will be partipating in this challenge. DOES this mean VEGAN Uggs in the future? We will see.
You maybe wondering right now, why isn’t wool vegan? This is because shearers are paid by volume not by the hour the quick work can result in violence toward the animals. This industry is also not environmentally friendly polluting the earth with methane, contaminating waterways and eroding soil.
I cant wait to see what this brings for the vegan fashion industry. As more and more innovations come out, it’s making it easier and easier to choose the more compassionate option.
You have the ability to be the best version of you and it's my job to help you get there.
