  • Also anyone who's like missing cheese, the Uncheese Cookbook is AWESOME.
  • Okayyy here's a recipe for "salmon"! It's really good.

    ngredients:

    2 cups raw almonds

    1 cup raw carrot pieces

    1/2 to 3/4 cup carrot juice OR water

    1 tablespoon lemon juice

    1 1/2 celery stalks (or chard stalks), cut in pieces

    4 green onions chopped ot 2 tablespoons ground chives (or other equivelent)

    1 teaspoon each salt and paprika

    1 or 2 tablespoons hickery-smoked seasoning (completely optional, when I made this I didn't put it in XD)

    Calp or other sea vegetable to taste (also completely optional)



    Instructions:

    1: place alomonds, water, lemon juice and 1/2 cup of the carrot pieces and blend into a puree.

    2: add all remaining ingredients and blend briefly, enough to grind the carrots and celery (or chard stalk) into a spreadable consitency (chunks are perfectly fine) add chives/onions last and blend a few seconds to mix.

    Are you vegetarian or vegan: Vegan! :)

    What you love about being vegetarian/vegan: I feel better mentally and physically! (Such as having more energy), and not contributing to animal abuse and climate change as much!

    Tips for those wanting to be vegetarian or vegan: Start slow, but once you get some solid meals you know you can make it becomes easier! (Also, if there is a Trader Joes near you, that's a super good place to buy substitutes for meats)

    Favorite vegan food: Stuffed bell peppers :)

    Other: I've only been vegan for about a month, so I'm still a newbie, but I'm loving it so far! Also, love this board!
    • Hey Ava! It's super awesome to be vegan! I've never tried stuffed bell peppers before! I also get a lot of fake meat from Trader Joe's!
  • does anyone know which dairy companies don't hurt their animals? please don't do articles and links, just if anyone knows one could they please say the name right here?

      Most small dairy farms don't. I read a dairy farmers tumblr blog and actually most large scale farms don't either.
      • thanks! I am glad to hear that.
    • “Stoney Field” organic dairy doesn’t hurt their animals.
      • ok thank you!

Coming Out To Family

How do I come out to family? -Anonymous Hi there! This is a loaded question that has many different answers, because everyone's family situation is different.

Excercising When You Don't Want To

I despise PE. I always get picked last in activities, not because people don’t like me but because I have no athletic abilities whatsoever. I can’t run, I can’t hit, I can’t do push-ups...

What should I do? –Anonymous    Hi! I’m sorry you dislike PE and feel like you always get picked last, captains choosing teams is really not the…

TikTok Users Being Mistreated

Why are people who like tik tok so mistreated on NMG? -Sophia   I'm very sorry that you feel that poeple are being mistreated because they like TikTok! I can assure you that making someon's opinion feel unwelcome - or worse, making the person feel unwelcome - is never the intention, and I apologize if it comes across that way on the website. I think that many NMG members have very strong opinions on TikTok (myself inclued), because the company that runs it has many problems, including (but not…
