Soyatoo – Vegan Whipped Cream in a Can!
OMG this stuff is delicious. When I went vegan, I didn’t really think about missing cream, but it’s really the only thing I’ve been missing.
Make sure you follow the directions and leave it out of the fridge before attempting to squeeze it. The can says leave it out for 10-15 mins but I recommend longer, say 30 mins.
I ruined one can by using up all the propellant but trying to squeeze it straight from the fridge. Oops!
Chocolate Flavor Coconut Milk Chocolate Ice Cream (e.g., Trader Joes Chocolate, or Luna & Larry’s Chocolate Hazelnut Fudge)
Vanilla coconut milk ice cream still has a really strong coconut flavor, and I’m not convinced about coconut and vanilla as a flavor combination for ice-cream.
I think the fruity flavor of chocolate goes better with the coconut flavor. The chocolate is a strong enough flavor that the coconut is the secondary flavor and adds a nice extra flavor note, whereas with the vanilla ice-cream, the coconut flavor dominates.
I’m not generally a chocolate ice-cream fan but this stuff is great.
Almond and soy milk ice-creams tend to be excessively icy and too sweet (and I almost ever think anything is too sweet).
Daiya – Vegan Cheese
I didn’t realize how good Daiya is until I came back to the US after months of eating Cheezly in NZ. Although Daiya is famous for being a vegan cheese that melts like regular cheese, I don’t like … Read the rest of this blog post
Ever wanted to be an expat for an NGO? Tammy On The Move answers our questions about how she got her job, and living in Cambodia.
1. Tell us about how long you’ve been in Cambodia and what you do there?
I have been in Cambodia for 1.5 years now. My hubby and I initially went for a 6-month voluntary placement, but loved it so much that when we got offered a paid job in international development we jumped at the chance. We are both working for an American NGO that deals with human rights issues.
Would you be able to say a bit more about how you went from volunteer to paid work?
I went from volunteer to paid work by working quite hard actually. A lot of volunteers take the mickey to be honest and think that volunteering is a ride in he park and cant be bothered to do any work that isnt glamourous. Reality is that not a lot of work you get as a volunteer is glamorous and why should it? You are there do help where help is most needed at the time and if that is proofreading a local colleagues’ email then thats what you will have to do. So I worked hard, did work I didnt like doing and proofed that I can do a good job at helping making the organization more efficient and trained up in comms and fundraising. I must have done something right, as I was asked to … Read the rest of this blog post

REWILD CRUELTY-FREE CLUB
Why choose vegan? Because vegan products require a much smaller fraction of land and fewer resources than those necessary to produce animal products. According to Rewild Cruelty-Free Club, the choice is simple: choose vegan. Visitors get the oppurtunity to eat and drink whatever they like without having to worry about ingredients or limited choices. They offer sandwiches and wraps with vegan cold cuts, sausages and veggies burgers. Main courses (lasagna, tagliatelle, ravioli, soups and rolls), and second courses (breaded cutlets, roasts, medalions etc..) are all made with a seitan, tempeh or tofu base. You can choose between bruschetta with vegetable/tofu/organic spreads, vegan cheeses, and even shakes and puddings with vegetable milk.
