02-06-10 Personal/ Home care products

This week I discuss some vegan (no animal ingredients or testing) home and personal care products, as well as how you can make your own with things like baking soda, vinegar and lemon juice. I also talk about a recent news story featuring battery farming and why we need to stop focusing on factory farming and recognise that all exploitation is wrong and the only way to help end that exploitation is to go vegan and promote veganism.

I also mention this recipe for vegan donuts:

Dry Ingredients:
1 Cup All Purpose Flour
1/2 Cup Sugar
1 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1/4 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp  Nutmeg
1 tiny pinch or shake Cinnamon

Wet Ingredients:
1/2 Cup Soymilk
1/2 tsp Apple Cider Vinegar
1/2 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
Egg Replacer for 1 Egg
4 Tbs vegan margarine

Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius

In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients with a whisk to mix thoroughly. Combine wet ingredients in a small sauce pan over medium low heat and mix until margarine is melted. This mixture should NOT get too hot; you should be able to stick your finger in the mixture. It should feel slightly warm.

Add wet to dry and mix until just combined. It should form very soft dough. Using a tablespoon measure, scoop out dough into your ungreased nonstick mini-donut pan. Bake for 12 minutes
