The Veghealth Awards is put on by The Vegetarian Health Institute. Their focus is to help people defeat deficiencies on a vegetarian, vegan or raw diet: to ensure that your food choices, regardless of their reason, are healthy choices. Hardly every vegan is a healthy human, so their work in educating the public about how to be healthy as a vegetarian, vegan or raw foodist, is important work.
The Vegetarian Health Institute has a twitter that may be followed to keep up with the progress of the Veghealth Awards. I'm following.
Voting in the Veghealth Awards gives you access to a free 10-day course on veg health secrets. Also, as an added bonus, you're entered for a chance to win $247 worth of online education from The Vegetarian Health Institute. There will be five winners of this prize!On October 1, 2011 at World Veg Weekend in San Francisco, the winners will be announced.
Also, as an aside to this awesome event, The Vegetarian Health Institute is giving away two free ebooks. I've read them both, and I believe the information is very valuable and helpful, whether you're a vegan, a raw foodist, a vegetarian, or not.
“How Vegans Get Calcium, Iron, Protein, A, B12 & D”
“14 Ways To Supercharge Your Health With Whole Foods”
For anyone who is reading this post and saying, "hey, I want to know what's new with Raederle!" a quick update:
I'm now pretty well adjusted after the move back home to Buffalo, NY from Walnut Creek, CA. My husband has adjusted well also. We're very thrilled to have such a vibrant growing garden full of edibles. Peas are in season right now and we're enjoying eating them off the vine. Photos of the garden to come. (Before and after photos!)
We're considering various composter designs since we need to build a large one. The one that was already here when we arrived only took us a couple months to fill entirely. We need one that we can fill throughout the entire winter.
I've been enjoying many different smoothies as of late. I can't get enough of them during these hot beautiful days. When the weather is this nice I don't want to be stuck in the kitchen preparing food. I want something fast and delicious and energizing, and smoothies are perfect. I've been especially fond of using raspberries and "nog" seasonings.
But of course, I still continue to make lots of other creative things on occasion, because I really just can't help myself. I've recently posted a simple blueberry banana cream pie recipe.
I have some recent photos on facebook of myself with various nifty creations, including me with raw vegan pizza!
In the near future I'm looking forward to going fruit picking. It's good for saving money and getting more enzymes and flavor all at the same time.
Anyway, click here to vote for my blog and officially make my day.
Thanks for reading.
