PETA Names Olivia Wilde the Sexiest Vegetarian Celebrity of 2010 | celebrity quotes
Audrey is the most beautiful woman in the past 100 years and Olivia Wilde is “The Sexiest”… but not according to Maxim or FHM (although that has happened too), but to PETA! The reason? Olivia is one hot vegetarian.
“I am really honored, and very inspired to continue living the vegan lifestyle that has been so good to my body, my animal friends, and the world we live in. So thank you, PETA, and thanks to all who voted for me!”
… says Olivia about her title.

Victoria Beckham’s Specific Dietary Demands

Victoria Beckhams Specific Dietary Demands | celebrity quotes
Victoria Beckham reportedly compiled a very specific list of dietary demands forher dressing room “rider”. So what is Posh eating exactly? From ShowbizSpy:
Chopped fresh fruit – cut pineapple with grated lime peel, green seedless grapes, red grapes (frozen), cut-up pear with lemon juice, apples, peeled pink grapefruit, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries,” says the rider, obtained by British newspaper The Sun.
“Please DO NOTMIX up the fruit but keep separate.
Plain Green salad (no dressings on it) – balsamic vinegar on the side.
“This is NOT balsamic vinaigrette but PLAIN balsamic vinegar. The thicker version so either aged/glazed balsamic (buy at Wholefoods in USA) or take regular and reduce it on the hob.”
“She’s obsessed with fruit and can’t get enough,” a source added. “The list always gets a chuckle from the lackeys who have to go and get this stuff.
“If we mix the fruit up there’s hell to pay.
“But it’s Victoria Beckham. What she wants she gets.
“There is never a request for anything with more than a handful of calories.
“We joked about leaving a Big Mac in the dressing room — but we know we’d get fired.”

So after a craving for gummy lollies.. I couldn't find any without gelatine (for a refresher gelatine: a jelly-like substance made from hooves, animal bones etc and used in food) one packet of lollies ingredients said gelatine (beef) how freaking gross!! Anyhoo I found some lollies without gelatine..
Sure it says Palm oil.. aka Hydrogenated oil which is bad.. but pick your battles.
also.. Toffutti better than cream cheese and avocado..

So I went to dinner lastnight at Redbank plains Tavern with my Family and my aunt and I spoke to the chef about making me something Vegan he offered me a great salad or vege based pasta, I got the pasta because I only get salads everywhere else. When the girl served it to me she told me I had to let the chef know if it was any good. It was fairly decent, I'm not that fussed on pasta and I kinda wish I asked for the salad but still decent.

Since I've been eating porridge A LOT lately I figured I'd do a more thorough post about them...

Instant oatmeal is a dish many people enjoy having for breakfast. Not only it is a delicious dish for breakfast, it is also a dish that helps in reducing your hunger, thereby helping you stick to your diet plan. This is because the fiber in oats forms gels to fill up. And it is these gels that delay the emptying of your stomach so that you don’t feel hungry quickly.
Having a bowl of instant oatmeal every morning increases your consumption of whole grains. These whole grains have fiber, various minerals and phytonutrients. These phytonutrients include lignans, plant sterols and stanols and antioxidants. The lignans are helpful in protecting your heart while stanols help in normalizing blood cholesterol levels. Eating about two bowls of oatmeal a day helps to reduce your cholesterol levels by six points in three months.
In addition to this, instant oatmeal also helps in reducing the medication in a person with diabetes. Instant oatmeal is also full of proteins and has about 50% of the amount of manganese a person requires in a day. Oatmeal also offers lots of iron, magnesium and thiamin. So it can be seen that instant oatmeal helps you to lose weight, and at the same time, provides you with your required nutrients. There is absolutely no cholesterol in a bowl of instant oatmeal as there is only three grams of dietary fiber in it. Oatmeal is a high source of phosphorus where you can find 133 mg of phosphorus and 42 mg of magnesium in it.
Instant oatmeal is a dish that does not have many calories. Though a portion of oatmeal has only 110 calories, it is a very filling dish. With a bowl of instant oatmeal, your hunger gets satisfied and you don’t feel hungry for quite sometime. The amount of fat in a bowl of oats is only two grams; so you don’t feel guilty of eating unnecessary fat in your breakfast.

^ what australians eat ^

^ what australians should eat ^

Breakky :)
For dinner I cooked my Vegies in a pan with Tofutti 'better than cream cheese'
instead of oil
oh and i've tried EGGPLANT.
It has a weird banana taste and funny texture, but I don't mind it.

It's funny what tempts me nowadays. Back in  the day before my Veganism if I was on a diet and there was a slice of chocolate cake put before me I probably couldn't resist it. Well tonight was my house mates birthday and they had Chocolate mud cake and I tell you what, just knowing what was in it and the fact that it wasn't Vegan didn't make me tempted to have it at all!

So it's been a while.
Some Vegan food updates - First of all some treats I discovered in IGA. (Hope I didn't look weird taking photos of food in the shop)
Quite tasty...
and some more...
Dinner tonight was PIZZA! I was thinking about it today but forgot then Brendon suggested it again tonight, so we made some home made pizzas, he truly is great when it comes to my veganism. Not only did he pay for me to get some So good Vanilla bliss soy milk (as it's on sale 3 for $4.8) he also paid for all my pizza stuff..
We found some Tofutti cheese too.
Which was surprisingly really nice and OMG IT MELTS! 
Now here is the end result of my pizza with Tomato pizza paste, Tofutti Cheese, mushroom, tomato, zucchini and sun dried tomato vegetarian sausages.
'Twas amazing! :P
(luckily we made two so I can have one for lunch tomorrow)

I recently got a new job at the Cinemas and one of my jobs is making popcorn.. one thing we put in it is flavocol.  The ingredients said 'artificial' butter flavor.. but I was still concerned as to weather is was 'Vegan' or not.. so I did a little googling and i founnd..

Flavacol is an accidentally vegan butter flavored salt. It's the same stuff the movie theaters use on their popcorn! It's really strong when sprinkled on foods but when you cook with it the flavor mellows and leaves a hint of butter that's normally hard to obtain from other sources. In that particular recipe using the Flavacol masks the yeastiness and accentuates the cheese taste.

Personal Trainer Reveals Blake Livelys Diet | blake lively

What is Blake eating to maintain her amazing figure and fabulous legs? Let’s find out from US Weekly:
Her diet? Oatmeal with a handful of blueberries, salads with chicken and balsamic vinaigrette for lunch and fish and veggies for dinner. (Lively also blends fruits and veggies with a juicer, and avoids noshing on too much dessert by eating just a “fork-full.”)
Her food splurge: The 5-foot-10 actress loves to cook and eat Greek food.
“You would not believe what she could consume,” Strom says. “The Greek fest that she made… crepes with cream cheese in them… we could only eat half of it. She ate all of hers and then went back and ate somebody else’s half.”
