I receive complimentary digital copies of Vegan Life, which allows me to post reviews with screenshots included. My reflections on the magazine are entirely my own.
In the same section on spiralized treats, there was an equally novel recipe for fruit noodle trifle. This features spiralised apple and persimmon. I think it looks delicious.
Also delicious, if less natural!, was a recipe for chocolate ganache stuffed s'mores donuts. They don't even require a donut pan or maker. They sound pretty incredible and take vegan decadence to a whole new level.
If you live in the US, you can now pick up some local vegan decadence in drive through format. The founders of Amy's Kitchen, a brand many of us will have seen for their vegan and gluten free products, now have drive through restaurants serving classic fast food fare - but with the vegan and GF twists the brand is known for.
I'd already heard about the veggie consultation UK chain Pret a Manger had earlier this year, but it was also nice to read more about their growing emphasis on vegetarian and vegan products. Pret is one of the biggest sandwich chains in the UK and they have stores all around the country, so it is a real win to know you're guaranteed a veggie product if you stop by. The US may get vegan drive through, but at least we can get vegan sandwiches!
On a more serious note, I was pleased and interested to read the call for animal welfare classes in schools (I think anything welfare classes would be a good idea, given how violent our societies can be) and the use of 3D printing technology to flood the market with 'fake' (printed) rhino horns. The idea is that these cheap horns would attract those in the trade and reduce the demand for real rhino products. Apparently they are able to print authentic horns using rhino DNA and keratin, which I find pretty amazing.
