Ten’s The Project Interviews Biased Dietician about Raising Vegan Children

Last night, 22nd May 2012, I saw a segment on Channel Ten’s, The Project, where they discussed Ruby Roth’s “controversial” new children’s book, Vegan is Love and the raising of vegan children. They went on to interview dietician, Susie Burrell who provided an extremely biased review and made out that veganism is dangerous. The Project stated that mixing politics and food wasn’t a good idea, highly hypocritical in light of the fact that the dietician they chose to interview for the segment is actually a writer for the magazine Vital which is published by none other than Meat and Livestock Australia. Of course this conflict of interest wasn’t revealed by The Project but I thank The Vegan Society of NSW for their research into the matter. Please pass this information on.

If you haven’t yet seen the video watch it here and skip to 3:25.

Tasmania Bans Sow Stalls and Battery Hens!

It was 2010 when I sat down at my desk, like many others in Tasmania and started writing many hand-written letters and emails pleading for a ban on sow stalls in the state. When I got a reply email stating that the campaign had worked and Tasmania and Coles would be phasing out the use of sow stalls by 2017 I was ecstatic!

Yesterday it was announced that sow stalls will be banned by the middle of next year! The government will also not allow any more battery hen operations and will limit those already in existence. Over 2 years a state budget of $2.5 million was provided to speed up the process. The budget papers state that the money is for farmers to “respond to market trends that indicate consumers are increasingly sensitive to animal welfare.”

Tasmanian Greens Leader, Nick McKim said: “The Greens took into the budget negotiations a proposal to announce Tasmania's intention to become battery hen-free and provide a transition package. There will be an immediate ban on any new battery farms or cages and a cap on the current hen stock introduced while the transition plan is finalised.”

In summery people power, letter writing campaigns, protests and veganism work!

Thank you to all the beautiful people that made this a reality.

Little Vegan Apple Pies

kirsty1

These pies are great for guests as you can all have your own pie each! They’re very moist so don’t need the added vegan ice-cream, it does add an extra special something to the mix though! I use whatever apples are on hand and So Good Vanilla ice-cream. You can also freeze the pies to eat later.

Makes 4 individual Little Vegan Apple Pies.

Ingredients:
4 apples, peeled, cored and chopped
⅓ cup caster sugar
1 tbsp. lemon juice
½ tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tbsp. cornflour
2 sheets shortcrust pastry, thawed
soy milk to brush the pastry (you could do without this)
vegan ice-cream if desired

  • Place apple, caster sugar, lemon juice, cinnamon and 2 tbsp. cold water in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook for 4 minutes of until apple has softened.
  • Combine cornflour and 1 tbsp. cold water in a small bowl. Add to apple mixture and bring to the boil. Remove from heat. Cool.
  • Lightly grease 4 holes of a ¾ cup capacity muffin pan. Cut out your pastry (I use a 14cm round, serrated pie cutter for my base and an 8cm round ring for the top. But you can use anything you have so long as the base is around 12-14cm and the top 8-10cm).
  • Line holes with larger pastry rounds. Fill with apple mixture. Brush edges with soy milk. Top with smaller pastry rounds. Brush with soy milk and sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon.
  • At this point you can either freeze the pies for later use or cook them up. The will freeze for up to 1 month.
  • Preheat oven to 180°C/160°C fan-forced.
  • Place muffin pan on a baking tray (I’ve never had any trouble with spillage myself but better safe than sorry) and bake for 45 minutes or until golden and heated through. Check at 30 mins to make sure it’s not getting too brown.
  • Serve with vegan ice-cream & enjoy!
