The Vegan Survival Kit – Episode 2

In the Vegan Survival Kit today we’re putting in Tools.

To be precise, I’m talking about knives.

I hope you enjoyed the  first episode  which was about protein.  Well, episode two is about tools. We need to have good tools in the kitchen if we are to enjoy cooking.  It’s like anything – the right tools for the job makes life so much easier!

So, in this episode I talk a bit about the knives and how to look after them.  Of course, there’s other tools, and one or two in particular that are really important for plant based eating … I go more into detail in my Vibrant Living course.

But, for now, enjoy the video The Vegan Survival Kit – Episode 2

Enjoy good food and be compassionate to all animals

The Vegan Survival Kit – Episode 1

Over the next little while, I’m going to be filling the Vegan Survival Kit with all sorts of odd thing.

Today, into the kit goes Protein.

I’m going to let the video below tell you most of it, needless to say, protein is one pretty necessary ingredient when it comes to what a vegan (or anyone) eats.

You see protein is an incredibly important building block of bones, muscles, cartilage, skin and blood.  It helps to make enzymes, hormones and other body chemicals to do this work and, along with fat and carbohydrates, we need relatively large amounts of it to do its job.

Plant protein is the best protein you can get and as long as you’re having quality proteins (beans, peas, lentils etc), you really can’t go wrong.  It’s also advisable to have protein with each meal, however, don’t stress out about it as all plants do contain protein.  Also the beauty of plant over animal protein is that plant protein also has fibre which animal protein doesn’t.  In fact omnivores have well below the recommended daily fibre intake – whereas vegans have over.

But … watch the video as to why I’m making protein the first item in the Vegan Survival Kit.

Enjoy good food and be compassionate to all animals
