No Happy Cows

In No Happy Cows, Robbins’ provocative observations about food politics and eating more consciously give you potent tools to take positive action for a healthier life and a healthier world.

John Robbins' books played a huge part in my decision to stop eating animal products.

Raw Onion Rings

My husband has been adding more raw food into his diet. He had a craving for onion rings so I gave these a try. I'm not an onion ring fan but he was quite happy with this raw version of one of his junk food favorites.

In first bowl add:

4 Tablespoons olive oil
2 Tablespoons water
1 Teaspoon sea salt

In second bowl add:

1/2 cup ground almond meal
1/2 cup ground golden flax seeds
1 Teaspoon smoked paprika

Cut onions into slices, dip in first bowl, then second bowl.
Place on mesh dehydrator sheets. Set temperature at 105 degrees and let them go for 14 or so hours.

Best Kale Chips Ever!

This is a great mixture for kale chips, so delicious and easy.

One bunch of Kale
2 cloves garlic
1 cup cashews (soaked for a couple of hours)
1 large red bell pepper
A few squirts of Bragg's Liquid Aminos
1/2 cup nutritional yeast

Blend cashews, red pepper and garlic in food processor.

Put cashew mixture in a mixing bowl and add the rest of the ingredients. Wash kale and spin extra water out with a salad spinner. Coat the kale with the mixture evenly. Don't be afraid to use your hands and really get the leaves evenly covered with the mixture.

Spread kale out evenly on dehydrator screens and dry for 12 hours. That's it!

Store chips in an airtight container.
