Vegan Cherry Almond Cookies
1/3 cup canola oil
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
3 tablespoons nondairy milk
2 teaspoons ground flax seeds (optional)
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon almond extract (optional)
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup slivered almonds
3/4 cup dried cherries
1.) Preheat oven to 350°F (~180°C). Line two medium-size baking sheets with parchment paper.
2.) In a large bowl, use a fork to vigorously mix oil, sugars, nondairy milk, flax seeds, and extracts. Sift in flour, baking soda, and salt and mix. When ingredients are mostly combined, add the almonds and cherries and mix until thoroughly combined.
3.) Drop cookies by generous tablespoons onto the baking sheets, about 2 inches apart. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, until the edges begin to brown. Let the cookies rest on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring them to wire reacks to complete cooling.
Being vegan is not just a matter of being ‘kind’ to animals. First and foremost, it is a matter of being just and observing our moral obligation to not treat other sentient beings as things.

Veganism is an act of nonviolent defiance. It is our statement that we reject the notion that animals are things and that we regard sentient nonhumans as moral persons with the fundamental moral right not to be treated as the property or resources of humans.
I hope you reached everything you wanted in 2012 but if not, I hope you’ll succeed in 2013.
In 2012 I finished school and started to go to university and I hope I will pass my exams. Hopefully 2013 will be a good year.
Do you have any New Year’s resolutions?
If you’re still looking for New Year’s resolutions, how about becoming vegan?
It’s good for you, for animals and human beings and for our planet.
Because I’m living vegan, I inspired one of my friends to become vegetarian in 2012 and another friend, who’s already vegetarian, stopped drinking cow’s milk and eats less cheese.
And if everybody can change things a little bit, the world will be a better place.
Make 2013 a good year for you and animals. :)
Veganism is not a ‘sacrifice’. It is a joy.
Veganism is not about giving anything up or losing anything; it is about gaining the peace within yourself that comes from embracing nonviolence and refusing to participate in the exploitation of the vulnerable.
…and local birds might need a bit help.
When it’s cold outside birds need food which is rich in calories and high-quality to survive the coldness. Herbal fat from nuts and seeds is the optimal food for the birds’ musculature. Grain-eating birds like chaffinch, brambling, greenfinch, hawfinch, house sparrow, tree sparrow and siskin like sunflower seeds, minced hazelnuts and walnuts, beechnuts and infructescence of millet and poppy.
Don’t feed wheat, rye, barley or oat because most of the birds don’t eat these or can’t digest them, and when this food remains in the bird feeder, it can start to mildew and harm the birds.
Blackbird, song thrush and redbreast like dried elder berries or rowan berries, rose hip and small pieces of apple and pear. Don’t worry, even frozen fruits don’t harm the birds, they naturally peck frozen berries without getting harmed.
Some birds eat peanuts, too, so you can also feed them with peanuts. But don’t feed the birds with bread!
Clean the feeding ground regularly, so that the birds don’t fall ill.
You can also start to hang up birdhouses, so that the young birds can look for a nesting site they can use in spring.
