Vegan ACT's 30 Day Go Vegan Challenge

Hi <<First Name>>! 


WELCOME TO DAY TWENTY-ONE!


 
 

Kym's advice for day twenty-one:
Be a vegan detective! 
If you have seen any of the animal rights documentaries or some of the evidence of cruelty to animals in factory farms that is going around in image form on facebook, you might have an idea of the extent of animal cruelty going on in our world. As vegans we have made the decision not to fund or partake in this cruelty. To do our bit to stop the cycle of abuse and neglect. By now you are probably realising the extend to which animal products are used in our society in everything from potato chips to computers, from snicker bars to sneakers. But rather than despair and feel helpless, instead I hope that you feel empowered by your choices! Theodore Roosevelt has a great quote: 

"Do what you can, with what you have, where you are". 


So what do we do when we find a product that we are not sure if its vegan or not? Easy - ring or email the manufacturer or producer and find out! Every company that manufactures or produces will have a website, go on there, and look for their 'contact' tab, then give them a cheerful phone call or a friendly email. As well as finding out for yourself whether the product is vegan, the added benefit of this is that it will help companies understand that more and more people are concerned with the treatment of animals, and will help encourage them to continue to (or start to) make their products 'cruelty-free' in future! :-)

TODAYS ASSIGNMENT: 
Email a few companies whose products you are using (or would like to use) and find out if they are vegan or cruelty-free. Most companies will get back to you within a day or two by email. Some may have a consumer hot-line or helpline.

Cassie's recipe idea for day twenty-one: 

Potato and Pea Samosas
Makes 8 
Ingredients
1 tbsp vegetable oil
1 brown onion, diced
1 clove garlic, minced
2 tsp curry powder
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp flaked salt
2 tsp kecap manis
360g potatoes, diced, boiled
125g fresh corn kernels
2 tbsp coriander, roughly chopped
2 sheets puff pastry, quartered
  1. Using a frypan, heat the oil over a medium heat and then sauté the onion and garlic until golden brown.
  2. Add the curry powder, cumin, salt and kecap manis and stir to combine. Fold through the potatoes, corn kernels and coriander and set aside.
  3. Preheat a fan forced oven to 190C and line a baking tray with canola oil spray and baking paper.
  4. Evenly divide the mixture between the 8 pieces of puffy pastry and then fold over to form a triangle. Pinch the edges until they form a tight seal and place onto the prepared tray.
  5. Place into the oven for 25 minutes or until golden brown.
