Study: Fat Linked to Breast Cancer and a free copy of VegNews magazine!!!

So there was big news this week…. A major study was released linking the consumption of red meat to breast cancer. (They don’t mention the other cancers, heart disease, diabetes that can also  result, unfortunately, I’m sure that data will keep coming out). This study was supported by the National Cancer Institute and is huge news for Vegans, people in support of Plant Based Diets, and the general public. You can read more about it here:

Carrot Cake Oatmeal (serves one)
A delicious, healthy breakfast with the flavours of carrot cake.

1/2 cup rolled oats
1 cup non dairy-milk of your choice
3/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp mixed spice (or nutmeg/more cinnamon)
1 tbsp raisins
1 tsp maple syrup (add more if you prefer things sweeter)
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 medium carrot, grated/shredded*
2 tbsp pecans or walnuts or slivered almonds

In a small saucepan bring oats, milk and cinnamon to the boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and add raisins.

Once most of the liquid has absorbed into the oats, add maple syrup, vanilla, and carrot. Keep stirring until you reach your desired consistency.

Pour oats into a bowl, topping with nuts and extra maple syrup, if desired.
