Raw Vegan Crack

That is what this stuff should be called, seriously. We are having a bit of a banana glut at the moment, which is something that makes me very happy, but it has actually gotten to the point where I am having to freeze and dry them to stop them rotting! But I'm not complaining! So here is a lovely little plateful of dried bananas (I bought the plate for $1 at an op shop). I was reading Lolo (at veganyumyum)'s most recent post Foor Photography for Bloggers and got really inspired to take some pretty pictures. As I've said before, my main problem is that I don't eat much more than fruit during the day, so when I have pretty food I never have nice natural lighting. But I think these pictures came out quite stunning, even if I do say so myself!

Oh and I made banana ice-cream with chocolate sauce and chopped almonds. It was heavenly... and looked very pretty too! ;-)

Lastly, I got myself a copy of Vegan With a Vengeance a few weeks ago and I have been going so nuts cooking and baking for my parents and the girls at work. I lOVE this book! Here are the Coconut Heaven Cupcakes - they were very popular at work! I know the lighting is not great but I actually really like this shot:

Anyway, I have to be getting to bed. Sorry if you are drooling all over your keyboard now ;-)

I love the look of the cup cakes too, how come theres no recipe!

At 10:07 pm, Blogger Freedom said...

Haha thanks Udon!

Anonymous - sorry for not clarifying there. No, the cupcakes are most certainly not raw (though they are vegan). That's why i said I have been baking for my parents and the girls at work - i didn't eat them myself. They are a bit out of place on my raw food blog but they were so pretty I just had to share! :-)

Sorry Lucy, no recipe because they are from the book Vegan with a Vengance.

I just wanted to say hi and I really enjoy reading your blog! I am also a raw vegan and I also work at an animal shelter and am an animal rights/welfare activist. It's great to see someone else who shares this passion with me, sometimes it feels like no one else cares! Keep on bringing your light to the world :-)

Hey there,

Would you take a sec and sign my petition, which can be found at my blog, asking Canada's government to include animal protection laws in the constitution.

And if you could keep up the good karma and pass on the link, that would be great.

Thanks so much!

I have a love-hate relationship with virtual memory because of how prices are always dropping. I absolutely hate buying Micro SD Cards for my R4 / R4i at (what seems to be) a cheap price only to see it become ten percent cheaper a couple of weeks later.

Virtual Memory sure is becoming cheaper these days. I wonder when we will eventually reach the rate of $0.01 to 1 GB.

I can't wait for the day when I will finally be able to afford a 20 TB harddrive . But for now I will be content with having a 16 GB Micro SD in my R4i.
