The kid and the fridge

A picture speaks a thousand words... If all kids (and some adults) saw these animals in their fridge, and there were no parental pressure, you bet they will go veg. Nobody likes to see killing and dead bodies - it brings up a strange indescribable feeling in the heart...  unless they have been conditioned and be really apart from their own natural heart.

... If people tell you plants feel pain, tell them to ask themselves deeply and use their heart.

Vegetarian Society AGM + Great vegan food

Yesterday I participated in the Vegetarian Society Singapore Annual General Meeting. This year there had been some changes as George left as president and the VP Clarence is now taking over as president. We hope to see more new programs and stuff rolled out by VSS! As always we have nice vegan food during the annual general meeting.

This vegan cake was for George, who had served for 10 years - baked by expert vegan baker Halimah. But I didn't manage to get a piece, gone in 60 seconds I'd say!

Nice special natural vegan meal VSS reserved for us at Kampung Senang.

Nostalgic Vegan chocolate ice cream on a cone by Kampung Senang - gosh it had been so long since I had ice cream in a cone!

The texture of the ice cream was grainy, but it was all natural - made from sunflower seeds and coconut oil. I still prefer brownice ice cream, but this passed the test. They had a really big tub and I went for 2 cones :)

Kampung Senang has got really natural food, it's near Aljunied MRT and I really suggest all health conscious people to try their food. :)

Antioxidant workshop

Merry Christmas! Happy New-Mayan-Era! Happy new year! After missing in action for a month, it's about time to be back here. Food picture posts will be coming up soon as well as the next post in the "Ask Ketki" series... Meanwhile I had been busy last december helping out my friend at his antioxidant workshop. My friend Yeow was running "raw" health workshops for the public. These workshops teaches people how to make green smoothies, soy yoghurt, edible enzymes and stuff. I was tasked to prep the stuff and serve the participants. Check out the pictures.

Soy yoghurt with dragon fruit enzyme and bananas yummy...

Sprouted green beans with trial mix for an energy packed snack...

His raw and green energy drinks are the best... blended on the spot and drank on the spot. Taste simply full of goodness and energy.

Orange pineapple punch with red dragon fruit enzyme.

Mango passion fruit

Yeow has these for his meals day in and out and hardly eats cooked stuff. Most people's antioxidant levels fall into the red and orange danger zone, vegetarians in the yellow zone. His level was way past the blue zone, in fact out of range in the chart. Yeow will be running his future seminars at Kampung Senang, so do look out for his events if you want to learn how to boost your antioxidant level.

Eco vegan product agency in Singapore

This is something new and cool in Singapore! A marketing agency which focuses on vegan and environmentally friendly stuff. They are pretty well diversified in what they do - handling Public Relations, Events, Advertising, Design, Interior, Concerts for clients. I got a chance to interview one of the founders - Marie about her business.

1) Why did u start this eco vegan product PR agency?

The reason we started this agency is because Maria (my business partner) is a vegan. She influenced me to lead a cruelty-free lifestyle. We don't own any items or belongings that are derived from animals or animal, because it is the ethical way of life. She is a wise leader and she taught me to be my best. I have to thank her as our company is a niche market and we are the only one in Singapore and probably Asia.

2) Can you tell us more about your company?

Our company support clients that are cruelty free. Basically almost everything except stuff that contains animals derivatives. We are a company who cares and loves the environment. Both Maria and I are creative directors who are experienced in our field.

3) You mentioned you are the vegan chef at home, can you share a recipe?

Yes. My extremely easy, fast, quick-cook meal is called the Spicy Sumptuous Sensational mouth-watering Vegan Wrap. It's called short form SSS Mouth Watering Vegan Wrap. (When you eat this you'll tend to go "ssssss", cuz it's really spicy on your tongue)

1) First, chop cucumbers, tomatoes, red and yellow peppers into small peices.
2) Take a pan, add vegan cooking oil or olive oil.
3) Heat the pan up with low fire and stir-fry it with a little onions, garlic, grounded pepper.
4) Stir-fry the cucumbers etc. with Mushroom Sauce or Vegetarian oyster sauce or even pasta sauce for 5-8 minutes.
5) Add oregano leaves and basil leaves. And then Add Chili padi (Chopped, 3 small pieces are good enough).
6) Pour about 5 tablespoons of water to cook and stir it with the vegetables. I use alkaline water by watersource because adding Alkaline water in your food balances the pH level of your body.
7) If your broth is too watery, pour more sauce, If your broth is too thick, pour more water.
8) To enhance the flavour, get Fry's vegan Sausages at cold storage. They are extremely tasty. Chop one sausage into tiny peices and fry them till they become thick.
9) Lay the wrap (check ingredients that is vegan) on a plate. If you wanna bake it to be hard it takes 5 min to bake)
10) Pour all ingredients on top of the wrap and add a dash of sesame oil
11) Serve with a glass of Water Source Alkaline Water, I have to mention this again because this is really good. I use to wake up often and can't get back to sleep, but after drinking this, I slept throughout the night. You can get more information from their website here I suggest everyone use it in their cooking especially so if you are not a vegan, because animal products and junk food increase our body's acidity.

(In the recipe above, I chopped up all my food first then stir the mixture and put the wrap below and I cooked with Veg's Fry Burger Patty but I suggest to chop the sausages as they go with it better)

4) What about tips on preparing healthy food, could you share some secrets of culinary skills? 

Secretsss.... The secret to preparing food is to omit all meats. Mix the vegtables with a lot of different ingredients that gel together logically. There is also trial and error to certain foods. A chef needs to be passionate about cooking as well. When you are cooking for the sake of cooking, your food will taste ok, if you are cooking with love, your food will taste jaw-dropping. Do look out for our cooking show very soon.
