Protein rich vegan sweets to reduce meat consumption!

At Life Loving Foods we have decided to take on a major challenge and to innovate by producing high in protein and fiber, healthy, vegan versions of popular desserts such as Chocolate Chip Cookies.

We have based our choice on a number of established health recommendations and considerations.

First of all protein takes longer to digest than other nutrients such as fat and carbohydrates. This means that it provides a longer feeling of satiety since the stomach retains it longer. In addition to that the fiber absorbs humidity and expands creating a full stomach feeling as well.
This combination of digestive elements recreates a similar effect to that of eating meats.

Protein is also considered useful in helping to maintain low body weight since it raises the metabolism in addition to the extended feeling of satiety.

Protein intake is needed to maintain muscle tissue regeneration, especially in teenagers and athletes. It also benefits adults by helping them maintain a higher muscle mass proportion in their bodies.

For the above reasons and others, protein is a very desirable nutrient and the main traditional source for it is meats and animal products. Vegetables are not as highly concentrated in protein and extracted versions which are high in protein are not easy to consume since they are powders or granules.

Much progress has been made in developing meat substitutes for animal proteins but it is still difficult to reach high levels. So we have decided to support our rich in protein meals with rich in protein desserts as well and make it possible to have a tasty, affordable and rich in protein daily food supply. In addition to that rich in protein desserts are universally desirable and easy to consume.

We feel it is a step in the right direction in helping to reduce meat consumption in the world and to reduce cruelty. And it also reduces pollution and improves health.

Vegan+

Becoming Vegan is one of the most important decisions i have made in my life. It was the start of an ongoing transformation outside and inside of myself.

On the outside i have a better complexion, feel more energetic and have less stomach upsets.

On the inside i feel happier, more content and more secure. I also feel more tolerant, more appreciated and more modest. For some of those feelings i have some analytical thoughts to share but not yet for all.

I feel more content because i do not require as much food quantity or variety to satisfy my needs.

I feel more secure because by striving to not harm other beings i feel that i will not be harmed as well.

I feel more modest because i realize that a less developed creature has similar rights to mine and must be respected.

I feel more tolerant because i have made note of the many years during which i was unconsciously causing pain and suffering, realizing that others are probably also not aware of their misconceived behavior.

These are but a very few of the priceless benefits that i mention and there are many more as well and certainly many more to come…..

Our recommended Vegan Gyros recipe

To make our VGKebab Gyros style please start by emptying the contents of the bag into a non-stick saucepan and adding about 300 ml of cold water and spreading the flakes evenly in the pan. Put on a low to medium stove heat and let the water absorb.

Wait until all of the liquid has been fully dried out and then add 75-100 ml of vegetable oil and raise the heat to medium to high and stir fry slowly until the desired coloring is reached.

Serve hot accompanied with garden vegetables such as lettuce, tomatoes, onions and pickles. It is traditionally served in Pita bread and can also be served in wraps.
