Here is my vegan powerpoint. I took out some slides due to it being really long, so that is why many page numbers are skipped over. Enjoy! :)

BTW- I know there is a typo in the third slide. Instead of “ARSON”, it should say “ARSENIC”. I typed it in a rush and I am unable to change it because I am on a macbook right now.

Devilish Potatoes
Ingredients:

1 1/2 lbs small thin-skinned potatoes, like yukon gold (about 10) 1 tablespoon olive oil 1/2 cup cashews, soaked in water for at least 2 hours 3/4 cup vegetable broth (or water) 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
1 teaspoon kala manak black salt (or 3/4 teaspoon regular salt) 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice A big pinch black pepper
For garnish: Sweet paprika Fresh dill

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
Slice potatoes across the waist and place on baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with a pinch of salt. Rub potatoes to coat, and place cut-side down on the baking sheet. Bake for 30 minutes, until potatoes are tender.
In the meantime, drain the cashews and place them in the blender with vegetable broth and turmeric. Blend until completely smooth, scraping the sides of the food processor with a spatula occasionally to make sure you get everything. This could 1 to 5 minutes depending on the strength of your blender.
When potatoes are tender, remove from the oven. When cool enough to handle, but still hot, scoop the centers out with a melon baller or rounded teaspoon, leaving about 1/4 inch lining of potato inside.
Place the scooped out potato into a mixing bowl and mash until smooth. It’s important that they’re still warm so that they mash well. Add the cashew cream mixture, salt, lemon juice and black pepper, and continue to mash until well incorporated. Chill in the fridge for about 30 minutes so that the mixture stiffens up.
Once cool, scoop into pastry bag fit with a medium sized serrated tip (I use Wilton 4B) and fill potatoes. Sprinkle with paprika and top with a little sprig of thyme. Keep chilled until ready to serve!

This is kind of awesome from SNL last night. It’s funny because that’s how people react when they find out that you’re a vegan. I wish this place actually existed!

Myth #1: You’ll feel awful when you first go vegan because your body will be detoxing.
Fact: It doesn’t matter what you eat; your body is constantly producing harmful compounds and working hard to neutralize or excrete them.
Myth #2: Plant foods are incomplete because they’re missing essential amino acids.
Fact: All plant foods that provide any protein at all—which includes all grains, legumes, soy products, nuts, seeds and vegetables—contain every one of the essential amino acids.
Myth #3: Vegan diets are low in fat
Fact: Vegan diets are somewhat lower in fat than those of the average American, but not by a lot.
Myth #4: Vegan diets are boring and restrictive
Fact: It’s true that vegans drop whole categories of food from their diet, so yes, they have fewer food choices. But the reality is that many people experience greater variety in their diet when they start exploring vegan options. 
Myth #5: A vegan diet requires vitamin B12 supplements, so it’s not a natural diet for humans.
Fact: Who knows what the “natural” diet of humans is — or if there even is such a thing? As humans evolved, so did eating habits based on availability, genetics, and climate. Simply moving around the globe changed diets and dietary needs.

For decades, experimenters at the University of Wisconsin-Madison (UW) have been conducting cruel and useless taxpayer-funded “sound localization” studies in which cats have steel coils implanted in their eyes, holes drilled into their skulls, and electrodes implanted in their brains. Sometimes, cats used in this experiment have had their ears cut off or are intentionally deafened by having a toxic chemical applied to their inner ear. The cats are then deprived of food for several days in order to coerce them to look in the direction of sounds during experimental sessions in which their heads are immobilized by a bolt screwed into their skulls.

Experimenters have justified the use of 30 cats like Double Trouble per year in this cruel project not by saying that it would enhance human health but by stating that they needed to “keep up a productive publication record that ensures our constant funding.”

Shockingly, the federal government continues to support this irrelevant and deadly project and has provided UW with more than $3 million in grant money to abuse animals—even though researchers at other institutions around the world are already using modern methods with human volunteers to investigate how the brain locates and processes sound.

You can help our efforts by contacting the National Institutes of Health and urging the agency to cut funding for this crude and deadly project.
