Comfortably Unaware by Richard Oppenlander

Eating Animals by Jonathan Safran Foer
Lynn’s handout at May, 2015, meeting:

Animal agriculture is a leading cause of species extinction, water pollution, destruction of the rainforest  and the creation of ocean dead zones. Animal agriculture creates more greenhouse gases than all of transportation combined. And you can choose to limit your consumption of meat, dairy and eggs every  day,  three times a day.Some plant based eating ideasBreakfast:½ cup organic steel cut oats,  1 ½ cups waterFruit ( blueberries, strawberries, bananas  or peaches etc), ground flaxseedCan add some cinnamon and/or molasses

A little soy or almond or rice milk.

After water is boiling, add oatmeal and simmer 13 to 15 minutes ( you don’t have to stir it –just set a timer)  Then add the other ingredients.  Delicious and nutritious and a great start to your day.

You can use rolled oats if you want it to cook faster ( I think this ratio is 1:1 water to oats)

Lunch or dinner easy/ fast  meal:

 1)Tortilla with humus and whatever vegetables you like2)  Baked potato topped with chard or kale and guacamole, or salsa and guacamole. Can top with black beans, pinto or garbanzo beans.  Can also use crumbled tempeh.3) Big salad with any of these:  avocado, olives, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, nutritional yeast, celery, carrots, tomatoes, peppers, beans, tempeh4)Beanburgers: it is nice to have some in the freezer for a quick sandwich.( I like to buy them from Dave Burt)
