Hendrix College Serves Up First-Ever Hearty Meatless Monday Breakfast Spread

November 12 2018 Meatless Monday 

Hendrix College Serves Up First-Ever Hearty Meatless Monday Breakfast SpreadHendrix College , located just outside Little Rock, Arkansas, cooked up a hot plant-based breakfast idea worth sharing. Working with Meatless Monday, the dining hall served students a fully customizable and sumptuous oatmeal bar. To celebrate National Oatmeal Day on Monday, October 30th, Cindy Mosley, Associate Director and Dietitian of Dining Services, introduced the first-ever oatmeal bar on Meatless Monday, offering a medley of fresh and dried fruit, nuts, and other delicious toppings. Meatless Monday caught up with Cindy to discuss her decision to offer the oatmeal bar and hear the warm responses the dining hall staff received. What inspired Hendrix to hold a Meatless Monday Breakfast event? The last few years, our dining hall has been working with The Monday Campaigns to create events and ideas to encourage students to take a break from meat one day a week. The focus has been with lunch and dinner options - never for breakfast. I felt it was time to encourage some additional choices and find ways to encourage students to make whole grain choices. The observance of National Oatmeal day was the perfect time to stage it. I came up with the idea to implement a do-it-yourself oatmeal bar to provide a unique breakfast experience. Just by giving them one place to find all the toppings, students ended up eating three times the amount of oatmeal than normal. None of the items were new to our dining hall, but for one morning, they were all offered in one convenient location. What were the favorite toppings? Mixed berries, chocolate chips, and pecans! How did the students react? The response was positive! Students left comments like, Because of this bar, I like oatmeal now! and This is great! Can you do this everyday? After such an overwhelming response, whats ahead? In December, I plan to present a Gardein-inspired Meatless Monday during lunch to introduce new, plant-based dishes. Are you interested in introducing Meatless Monday to your organization, restaurants, K-12 school, university, hospital, local city government, or social media group? We can help to provide everything youll need to get started. Our free downloadable guides include simple steps to get going, engaging graphics, proven keys to success, and science-backed research from our partner, The Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future.

The Climate Crisis Is Urgent. Meatless Monday Can Be Part of the Solution

November 5 2018 Meatless Monday 

The Climate Crisis Is Urgent. Meatless Monday Can Be Part of the SolutionTake action to fight climate change by going Meatless Monday.   Recent published reports have described a greater urgency to reduce climate change, citing that crisis levels could be reached as early as 2040. o The United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) generated worldwide attention by emphasizing the need for more immediate and far-reaching behavior changes than previously thought. It also identifies the role of food production and consumption in the current environmental crisis. o A second study in the publication Nature mirrors this identification of food as a major contributor to climate change and environmental harm. These reports point to livestock production as a major contributor to global warming, creating more greenhouse gases than all of the planes, trains, and automobiles in the world. For consumers looking for a way to take action against climate change by reducing meat consumption, Meatless Monday is a simple first step. Making a commitment to swap out meat for plant-based foods every Monday can lead toward more sustained changes to diet over time. The Center for a Livable Future at Johns Hopkins University shares their perspective on these recent reports  and also provides resources to guide consumers to better understand the relationship between food choices and climate change: “The Connections between Diet, People and Planet ” and “Global Meatless Monday -- for the Environment. ” To help improve this understanding, Meatless Monday has designed unique creative materials that give people a simple way to discuss and share the benefits of changing our diets. The Meatless Monday movement has support from chefs, celebrities, schools, restaurants, and organizations in more than 40 countries. The post The Climate Crisis Is Urgent.

Swedish Breakfast + Win a trip to Sweden!

October 3 2018 Green Kitchen Stories 

Swedish Breakfast + Win a trip to Sweden! Hi! We had to take some time away from this space while finishing the manuscript for our next book but we are super happy to be back here blogging again. We have got a couple of fun recipes lined up for the next weeks but are starting off with our favorite meal of the day and a competition with a seriously AMAZING prize! Keep reading to see how you can win a trip for two to Sweden to stay at forest restaurant and resort Stedsans in the Woods. First let us talk about this week’s recipe. If you are following us on social media you know how fond we are of porridge. Oat is the quickest and most common porridge grain but today we are sharing the recipe for another favorite - a simple and warming buckwheat and cardamom porridge topped with Swedish blueberries, nut butter and foamy oat milk. Buckwheat groats take a little longer to cook than oats but they provide a uniquely chewy and soft texture. We cook them with dried prunes or dates for a little sweetness and the trick for the best texture is to cook it until all water is absorbed. If you haven’t tried buckwheat porridge before, consider this your wake-up call! And now on to the competition. In collaboration with Visit Sweden, we are giving away a trip for two to Stedsans in the Woods, a fantastic restaurant experience and resort in the middle of the forest. To enter the competition, prepare a Swedish inspired breakfast (think porridge, muesli, berries, buttermilk, crisp bread, open faced sandwiches, boiled eggs etc) and share it on instagram using the hashtag #VisitSwedenFood. Together with a jury from Visit Sweden, we will choose the best contribution and announce the winner on 1 November 2018. The competition is open worldwide. The price includes flights/­­transportation for two people, transfer to/­­from Stedsans in the Woods and one night for two people in a double room at Stedsans in the Woods cabin/­­tent stay on Thursday, Friday or Saturday from May 2019. See whats included here. Buckwheat & Cardamom Porridge with Blueberries  Serves 4 1 cup /­­ 200 g whole buckwheat groats 2 cups /­­ 500 ml water 1 pinch sea salt 1/­­4 tsp ground ginger 1/­­4 tsp cardamom seeds (or ground) 3 dried prunes, stones removed and chopped Toppings wild blueberries (thawed frozen works well) nut butter Oat milk, foamed hazelnuts, chopped hemp seeds Rinse the buckwheat in hot water. Add buckwheat, water and the rest of the ingredients to a sauce pan, bring to a boil and lower the heat. Let gently simmer for about 20 minutes. Stir occasionally to prevent it to sticking to the bottom of the pan. When the water is absorbed the porridge should be just about ready, but keep stirring for another minute or so to get the perfect texture. Serve in bowls topped with blueberries, nut butter, oat milk, chopped hazelnuts and hemp seeds.   Crisp Bread Sandwich Serves 4  4 crisp breads or seed crackers 4 tsp butter (sub for olive oil for a plant-based alternative) 4-8 thin slices hard cheese (we use a variety called Prästost), use mashed avocad for a plant-based option 1/­­2 cucumber, sliced thinly 8 cherry tomatoes, sliced sprouts or mini greens salt & black pepper olive oil to drizzle Spread the crispbread with butter. Add a few slices of aged cheese to cover and top with thin slices of cucumber and tomatoes. Sprinkle with mini greens, salt and pepper and drizzle with a bit of olive oil over. This competition is arranged in collaboration with Visit Sweden. The value of the price is approx. 2 500EUR. Any tax will be paid by the winner.

Restaurant Highlight: Vx In London

October 3 2018 Happy Cow veggie blog 

London is truly a melting pot of tastes from all corners of the world. Every fleeting food interest that has crossed my mind while staying in the city has been quickly satisfied by a HappyCow search. Last time I passed through the city, my craving of the moment just happened to be vegan junk food. After consulting my maps, I was ecstatic but unsurprised to find that my longing would be fulfilled by a short walk. I strolled hungrily down the street from Kings Cross St. Pancras (home to the notorious Platform 9 3/­­4 from Harry Potter), listening to the tune of English accents that filled my ears with nostalgia. When I arrived to my destination, my jaw dropped with the realization that I had been to this café before. I vividly recalled this spot as the location of the hands-down best vegan chocolate cake I tasted when I lived in London four summers ago. The mouthwatering sight of its blueberry layer atop its moist, layered interior was forever etched into my memory. I stepped inside with delight, starving for a second taste. Vx may be dear to the hearts of many plant-based eaters who have crossed its path. As […] The post Restaurant Highlight: Vx In London appeared first on The Veggie Blog.
