Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations—CAFO’s: Dan Imhoff Speaks Out

Posted on 19 September 2016 by admin

For more videos and information, visit: cookingupastory.com As Dan Imhoff explains in part 1 of this video— editor of the new (coffee table size) book CAFO, a large body of illuminating essays, and full spread pages of (full-throttled) images depicting a litany of inhumane livestock conditions and their effects—the toll of these CAFO operations upon local communities, public health, and the environment obliterates any supposed economic advantages of such a system. Only through large federal subsidies (in the Farm Bill), and by ignoring a range of hidden (or largely obscured) costs that are ultimately borne by the taxpayer and eater, can their existence be cost justified.

Vegan Pumpkin Pie Recipe: No Animal By-Products

Vegan Pumpkin Pie Recipe: No Animal By-Products

Pumpkin pie is a holiday and seasonal favorite. Pumpkin is loaded with beta-carotene and vitamin A. Pumpkin has 5 grams of fiber per serving, so pumpkin pie is nutritious as well as delicious. Here is a vegan variety of pumpkin pie. Vegan foods contain not only no meat, but no eggs, milk, dairy, honey and other animal by-products. With the high levels of steroids, growth hormones and antibiotics in meat and dairy products, as well as animal fats and cholesterol, a vegan diet is very healthy.

Vegan pumpkin pie ingredients: (makes two nine inch pies)

fresh pie pumpkin, canned or frozen pumpkin; if you are using fresh pumpkin it must be taken from a pie pumpkin. Other varieties of pumpkin do not cook as well and have very little flavor. Can size is 29 ounces, or a little over 3 and one half cups.

two cartons tofu (about 12 ounces); Nasoya makes a Silken Style Creations packaged tofu. This tofu is lightly sweetened with cane juice and flavored with vanilla an sea salt. This tofu makes an excellent substitute for eggs and milk in vegan pumpkin pie.

1-2 cups Florida Crystals or Sucanat evaporated cane juice; sweeten to taste using the amount of sugar that tastes right to you. Brown sugars make the best pumpkin pies, but look for ‘carbon- free’ sugar.

1 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

1 teaspoon ginger

1/2 teaspoon cloves

shortening or oil pie crust ( do not use lard or suet in the pie crust for vegans)

Procedure:

Blend tofu in food processor of blender until smooth and creamy. Blend in pumpkin, sugar, salt and spices until smooth.

Pre-bake crust about ten minutes.

Fill crust with filling and bake until crusts are browned, about 35 minutes on 375 degrees.

Vegan pumpkin pie will not look exactly like egg and milk pumpkin pie. Vegan pumpkin pie will have a firmer more dense texture. But as far as taste goes, vegan pumpkin pie doesn’t really differ too much from regular pumpkin pie.

Practices such as tail docking ensure the high quality and safety of dairy products by decreasing the chances of any contamination . Practices like de-horning dramatically increase safety for farm workers and other livestock.

MFA’s Undercover Investigations: Exposing Animal Cruelty

Posted on 26 February 2016 by admin

Behind the closed doors of our nation’s factory farms, slaughterhouses and hatcheries, billions of animals suffer out of sight, and out of mind. These animals know no kind touch or compassionate care, only a life filled with intensive confinement, abusive handling, painful mutilations, careless neglect, and merciless slaughter. Though these animals struggle, kick and scream, their cries all too often fall on the deaf ears of profit-driven factory farm producers, who view these sentient and intelligent creatures as mere production units and commodities. But what animal abusers work so hard to conceal from public view, Mercy For Animals works diligently to expose. Wired with hidden cameras, MFA’s team of undercover investigators documents the harsh realities of industrial animal agriculture where cows, pigs, chickens and turkeys are subjected to a life of misery that few could even imagine.
