100 g of semolina

2 medium-sized pears (300 g)

3–3.5 dl soy milk

3 dates

salt

Preparation

Slowly mix the semolina semolina and the dates cut into pieces into the boiling soy milk salted with a pinch of salt. Stir with a whisk while cooking to prevent lumps from forming. After 5 minutes, remove the dish from the stove and serve on a plate.

Leek soup

Leek fresh soup

Ingridients

For 2 people:

1 tablespoon of oil

1 lieutenant

1 onion

1 clove of garlic

750 ml of soup base (or 1 vegetable cube and 750 ml of water)

salt and pepper to taste

Preparation

Cut the leek lengthwise and wash it well, as soil likes to hide between the layers, and cut it into thin strips. Chop the onion and fry it with the leek for about 20 minutes at a medium temperature on a spoonful of heated oil in a pan. Add a peeled and crushed clove of garlic. It can be crushed with the palm of your hand or with the broad side of a knife. Stir several times in between, add a little water if necessary or reduce the temperature so that the leeks and onions do not burn. They should be browned a little, as this will make the taste even more pronounced.

Cover the leeks and onions with the soup base. Add salt and pepper as desired, but we must remember that the cube or soup base is already salty. Cook for 10 minutes. Remove the garlic and serve the soup.

With the leek soup, we can offer bread with garlic, cheese or some other spices, which are baked in the oven until crispy.

Vegan bread dumplings

Vegan bread dumplings

Ingridients

For 4 people:

400-500 g of bread (2-3 day old bread can be used)

1 large onion

2 cloves of garlic

4-6 tablespoons of olive oil

2 tablespoons of flax seeds

2 tablespoons of chopped parsley

½ cup of water

1 cup soy milk (always add gradually depending on the dryness of the bread!)

¼ teaspoon nutmeg

salt and pepper to taste

vegan ham or hot dog (optional)

Preparation

Grind the flaxseed and add 1/2 cup of water to it and let the mixture stand for 10 minutes. Chop the onion and garlic and fry them in olive oil (garlic is added a little later than the onion). If you want to add vegan ham, chop it up or mix it in a food processor and fry it in a pan with a little oil. Cut the bread into small cubes, about 5 mm x 5 mm wide.

Mix all the prepared ingredients, except soy milk, in a large bowl. Gradually add soy milk and knead the mass with your hands until it starts to stick together nicely. Form a loaf (cut into slices after baking), patties or balls. The mass can also be used to stuff any vegetables (e.g. peppers). Place the prepared mixture on a baking sheet lined with baking paper and bake for 20-30 minutes at 180°C (or until nicely browned).

They can also be prepared by cooking. The shaped loaf, similar to a štruklje, is sprinkled with breadcrumbs, wrapped in a clean white kitchen towel and tied with sewing thread. Cook for 20 minutes. Before cutting, wait for the loaf to drain and cool slightly.

Bread dumplings can be served as a side dish to vegan goulash, soy steak in mushroom sauce or spinach with toasted patties from the store. We always add a big bowl of salad to the meal.

5 things you need to know before you decide to go vegan

Vegan food
  1. Enjoy the process of transitioning to a vegan way of eating The first and most important rule is that veganism should be a fun and stress-free thing. But like all other changes in your life, changing the way you eat takes time and patience, because things don’t happen overnight. When you’re researching new recipes and looking for new nutritional information, always keep in mind that all these changes will make you feel a lot better, and you’ll be in better shape at the same time. Maybe veganism will be just a temporary excursion from the world of vegetarianism for you.
  2. Will I really have more energy? The simple answer to this question is “yes”. When you replace harmful saturated fats and cholesterol with natural grains, seeds, fruits and vegetables, you will feel a real explosion of new energy and better balanced health. But, as with all other diets, the quality of the food you eat is crucial in veganism. Simply replacing meat, fish and dairy products with quick fixes such as packaged bread and packaged pasta will in no way provide you with the balanced meals and high energy doses that make up the core of veganism. Which, of course, does not mean that you have to give up your favorite food.
  3. Do I need to take nutritional supplements? You may need to take a dietary supplement containing vitamin B12, which you can buy over the counter at your nearest pharmacy. If you are consuming foods that are not rich enough in iron, you may also want to consider a natural iron supplement such as spirulina or chlorella. Remember that vitamin C helps with iron absorption.
  4. Will such a diet cost me more? A vegan diet should generally cost you less – after all, a kilo of meat is probably the most expensive thing in your shopping basket, but the final financial outcome depends on what kind of food you eat. Organic food is generally more expensive, but you’ll also be eating more fruits, grains, and vegetables… but eating healthy also means your body requires less food. But regardless of the cost, remember that an investment in a healthy diet is also an investment in your health, well-being and longer life.
  5. Be prepared for questions As you change your lifestyle and discuss your new habits, you may be surprised by the number of questions you will receive and the interest you will receive… This includes friends and family members who have not made the same decision as you. or they don’t know much about the subject.

Genetic particles – not only in food, but also in air and water

Genetic change

The great need for meat is actually covered only by artificially inseminating more and more animals. Through genetic manipulation or genetically produced drugs, they achieve twice the weight of meat with less fat than in naturally grown animals. With special genetic blocks, the quality of the meat also changes, so that people receive large amounts of genetic particles with meat as food. Many animals suffer immensely because of interference in their lives. Torments create resonances, i.e. oscillations in them, because animals also feel. These suffering and tormenting feelings go into their genes. Man eats meat with properly programmed genes. If a gene particle becomes embedded in a human body cell, then that animal genetic program becomes a human program.”

Animal test

Who gives humans the right to manipulate the genetic makeup of animals? Who gives them the right to desecrate and change nature? Only he who puts himself above God has the right to own it.
“People are commanded not to kill. This also applies to animals – and also to plants, if the plant life is not intended for food or the preparation of vital goods. Man has no right to kill and manipulate. Whoever transgresses against animals and plants acts according to the demon’s will: kill everything, manipulate everything so that neither people nor animals feel God’s will. Is this a new world order?
