Easter

What vegan bunnies eat for Easter.

🍀🐣🐰🐥🍀
Happy Easter! - Or Happy Holidays if you don't celebrate Easter ^_^

I had to make a request to my supermarket to make hot cross buns without gelatine, which is in the glaze, but Baker's Delight do vegan hot cross buns. I love having hot cross buns toasted and with dairy-free margarine. It's the first time in about four years that I've had hot cross buns as they don't celebrate Easter in Asia.
I got the Moo Free and the Sweet Williams chocolate from The Warehouse. 

 




I used this recipe http://www.thebuddhistchef.com/recipe/vegan-pancakes/ but halved, and layered it with things like Pic's peanut butter, dark chocolate drops, Hershey's chocolate sauce, and bananas. Yum!

Not long ago, I saw Beauty and the Beast with a friend at the cinema. We both enjoyed the film. Prior to going, we ate at Waterdrop Vegetarian Cafe in the temple on Riccarton road. They had plenty of options and I spent too much money there ^_^



Yes I am a hypocrite for being anti-uncertified-palm-oil but then buying an Oreo muffin....

The nuggets were made out of bean curd but tasted like chicken nuggets.


I got this at Vegetarian World on Yaldhurst Road : D they come frozen but they're tasty heated in the oven. 


Grilling garlic butter on your burger buns is bomb and I recommend it.


Went to Welcome Vegetarian Cafe near Riccarton road a couple of weeks ago and got my Chinese food cravings fixed.

Other than that, I've been lazing around in my free time, talking to my boyfriend who lives in Europe, usually in the company of one out of five cats. I'm also working on getting a cheap car.

  

His sister recently gave me this pin and I've been obsessing over it; I wear it as a necklace and frequently stare at it. It's from this store on Etsy https://www.etsy.com/shop/sailxon ... I stalked her on instagram and she seems quite involved with Sea Shepherd so hurrah! I'm proud of it. 



Go Vegan!


For the Animals 
• Because whenever they are treated as products rather than the sentient beings that they are, they suffer http://www.nationearth.com/earthlings-1/
• They are here with us, not for us. 
• Just because they are different from us, doesn’t mean that they aren’t sentient nor intelligent in their own way https://www.facebook.com/mercyforanimals/videos/10154770111524475/
Like us, they have: a brain, a heart, eyes. Like us, they seek comfort. And like us, they don’t want to suffer.

For the People
• We could distribute resources better to feed a lot more people https://youtu.be/Hvdgz536ZLE
• There are antibiotic resistant bacteria that are continuously adapting which start in farm animals and transfer to humans. We'll be wiping ourselves out with avoidable deadly infections.https://youtu.be/mUYhAJ6MDrc?t=3m12s

And for the Planet
• Animal agriculture is the leading cause of climate destruction https://youtu.be/dSjE8xw_-Dg
• 75% of fisheries have either been exploited or depleted. We pull an estimated 2.7 trillion sea animals from the ocean in a year. The ecosystem of the ocean is extremely relevant to us because without the phytoplanktons, we’ll have 50-80% less oxygen. Since 1950, we’ve seen a 40% decline in phytoplankton. To quote Captain Paul Watson, ‘If the ocean dies, we die.’
