Spinach-Orange Salad


Salads are very versatile and can make a quick and easy summer meal, light or robust, depending on the ingredients. You can spruce up your greens with radish, olives, alfalfa sprouts, vegan walnut paté, vegan coleslaw, cucumber, or more of your favorite veggies. This simple salad has all you could want for a mouth-watering, satisfying taste. The toasted sesame seeds add wonderful flavor to it.


Ingredients:

1 bunch fresh spinach (about 6 cups of leaves)
1 red or yellow bell pepper, cut into strips
1/4-1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion
1 orange, peeled & sliced into thin rounds
1 Tbs. sesame seeds
2 Tbs. seasoned rice vinegar
1 Tbs. orange juice concentrate
1 Tbs. water

Directions:

  1. Trim the spinach stems and carefully wash the leaves; dry, then tear any large leaves into bite-sized pieces.
  2. Place in a salad bowl along with the pepper, onion, and orange slices.
  3. Toast the sesame seeds in a 400 degree F toaster oven or regular oven for 10 minutes; transfer to a blender and grind into a powder.
  4. Add the vinegar, orange juice concentrate, and water; blend to mix.
  5. Pour over salad and toss just before serving.

Eat Your Veggies!


As if we need yet another reason to eat our broccoli and other cruciferous vegetables, a new study has come out of Oregon State University indicating that the compound sulforaphane can target cancer cells while leaving normal cells unaffected. Sulforaphane is found in broccoli, cauliflower, brussels sprouts, cabbage, kale, kohlrabi, rapini etc., vegetables that are loaded with nutrients and antioxidants.

The findings of the study were published in the July issue of Molecular Nutrition and Food Research, a professional journal.

Fashion with Compassion


As a long-time knitter, fashion-lover, and vegan of 5 years, Kristen Blackmore had long been aware of the lackluster options when it comes to high-quality, trendy vegan knitwear—scarves, sweaters, and everything in between. While attending school for both fashion and knitwear design, Kristen avoided the pressure to conform to the industry’s careless disregard for animals and stuck to plant-based, eco-friendly fibers for her designs.

This month, Kristen launched Treewool, a chic line of handmade vegan knitwear! The garments and accessories fill a void in the vegan fashion community, offering functional, wool-free options for year-round wear. If you buy one of Treewool’s six debut pieces, not only will you be supporting a new vegan business, but $1 of your purchase will be donated to Farm Animal Rights Movement.
