Hi <<First Name>>!
WELCOME TO DAY TWELVE!
Kym's advice for day twelve:
Vegucate yourself with some vegan documentaries!
So far I have given you more than twenty youtube video links to get info for free online, but there is nothing more impactful or powerful than a feature length documentary watched on a big screen - or at least on your television rather than a computer! Some of the most powerful vegan documentaries include: Peaceable Kingdom, Earthlings, Vegucated, Meat The Truth, Speciesism, The Witness, A Delicate Balanc, Mad Cowboy, The Cove, Blackfish and Forks Over Knives. Most of these have years of work involved and give an enormous insight into the compelling reasons that a vegan lifestyle is the only way we should be living.
Check out some trailers, synopsis and reviews for these films, either just be searching on youtube, or try these links here here and here. Some of these films like Earthlings have a high level of animal cruelty, so be wary of what you are willing to witness and what you are comfortable with watching. Others such as Forks Over Knives or Live And Let Live contain no animal cruelty scenes at all. Forks Over Knives can be purchased at JB Hifi. Order others online via www.urbangypsyaustralia.com or Amazon. Avoid watching films through pirated video sites as its unethical and doesn't help to support the filmmakers, and we really need them to be able to make more films and fund their impor work :-)

Cassies' recipe idea for day twelve:
Creamy Brown Lentils and Pistachio Dukkah
Makes 4 serves
3 tbsp nuttelex
1 brown onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup puy (brown) lentils, washed
1 tsp salt
375ml vegetable stock
1 litre water
2 tbsp lemon infused olive oil
1 tsp coriander seeds
1 tsp cumin seeds
¼ tsp cinnamon, ground
2 tsp sesame seeds
2 tbsp pistachio nuts
1 tsp sea salt
- In a saucepan, melt the nuttelex over a medium heat and saute the onion and garlic until softened. Add the lentils and salt and allow to saute for 1 minute.
- Pour over the stock and water and allow to simmer over a low heat for 90 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- To make the dukkah, place all ingredients into frypan and toast until fragrant, approximately 6 minutes over a medium heat, stirring constantly. Allow to cool and using a food processor, process until desired consistency is reached. You want to have some small lumps still visible.
- Serve the lentils with dukkah and drizzle with lemon olive oil.
