Tofu Noodle Salad BowlSo we had this vegan ramen I got it, but decided I wasn't going to eat it. Dad said he would, but I think he'd rather go for whatever array of things he usually eats. (lest I should decide to cook for him) I kept randomly thinking about it anyway, and finally got the final idea, and time, to make this. He told me he liked it, so should you attempt it, I hope you think so too!
Noodle Salad Bowl with Tofu Steaks (1 serving)

7 sugar snap peas
1 kale leaf
Some cauliflower florets
2 green onions

1-2 tablespoon(s) brown rice vinegar, or lemon or lime juice

Almond MilkieThis recipe is so ridiculously simple, and tasty, it should be criminal. I don't say this merely to coax you into trying it, but it's marvelously refreshing when one is feeling heated like plain water, but with lovely, and apparently rather good for you, essence of almond.
Basic Almond Milk
¾ cup almonds
3 ½ cups water (filtered would be best)
Soak almonds for twelve hours at least. Drain, and wash nuts well (the water will have turned a murky white). Place in a blender with the water and blend, first on low, then high speed. Please don't let the mixture get to hot while blending, by stopping for a bit before starting to blend again.
Pour milk into a bowl through a double layer of cheesecloth, or a nut milk bag. Squeeze out as much liquid as possible without causing a tear in the straining vessel. (Preferably the bowl into which you strain should be one with a lip for pouring, because a regular bowl is rather a pain about having the contents drip and fall off the botto

Why Im A VegetarianI'm a vegetarian because society is corrupt, if one man kills another man, that first man is killed in order to prove killing Is wrong, but what about animals? Man does not only kill animals, but he cooks them and eats them, if one man kills, cooks and eats a person (or more) they can get life with no probation. Though it's an every day thing that animals are killed for food, it's so common we have housing built for such a thing, filled with hooks, saws, spinning blades and conveyer belts. Why is it that man gets away with such things and most people don't even notice nor pay attention to the fact it goes on every day but we can all watch the news and think "That's so sick" when we watch a story about a grisly murder on the news.
If a dog bites a person, that dog is put down, but if a man kills cows and pigs and chickens they are paid for it. Why is this? Why is it that in our society it's considered "okay" to kill a creature that can feel, touch, love, reproduce and communicate, just
