Today, November 2, would have been Jay Dinshah’s  83rd birthday. If you haven’t heard the name, Jay became a vegan advocate embracing the concept of dynamic harmlessness after touring a slaughterhouse in 1957. Subsequently in 1960, he founded the American Vegan Society (AVS). Unfortunately Jay passed away in 2000; however, his tireless dedication and commitment to educating people about the practice of nonviolence and the benefits of adopting a vegan lifestyle are no less mirrored by his wife, Freya Dinshah, as the Executive Director of AVS, and his daughter, Anne Dinshah.

So, what exactly is dynamic harmlessness?

Dynamic Harmlessness Day – November 2

Today is World Vegan Day and the first day of World Vegan Month. As I paused a moment to acknowledge this day, it brought me back to that infamous day in November, 1997, when I was thrust  into transition because Freya Dinshah, Executive Director of the American Vegan Society, recommended that I read the book Skinny Bitches (written by Rory Freedman and Kim Barnouin) to learn more about what it means to adopt a vegan lifestyle.

World Vegan Day

How many times have you been asked that question?  Far too many to count, for sure.  What’s the saying….if only I had a dollar for every time I’d been asked that question.

While the belief that we must have a protein-rich diet is permeating our society today, largely

Where Do You Get Your Protein?

Over the past several years, I’ve noticed that oftentimes the terms “vegetarian” and “vegan” are misunderstood by not only the general population at large but also within our own veg community. And using those terms when attempting to order a meal at a restaurant frequently becomes what would make for

Don’t you just love being resourceful? Whoever had the brilliant idea of using the liquid from a can of garbanzo beans as an egg white rather than tossing it down the kitchen drain is nothing short of a culinary genius! Oh, and the name it’s been given – Aquafaba –

Aquafaba – The Shocking Miracle Ingredient

It truly doesn’t get much easier than this recipe meant to impress anyone who simply adores chocolate.

This rich and luscious mousse is incredibly versatile.  I’ve even used it as an ice cream base, adding another 1/2 cup coconut milk, refrigerating until chilled but not set, then processing in

Greetings.  It’s been a while since I’ve entered a post here at Veganification–September 14, 2013 to be exact.  So, I thought it would be appropriate on this 3-year anniversary of my absence, to update you and get back on track with actively blogging.

Greetings From My New Home in the Sedona Arizona Area

I know what you’re thinking….oh geez, a fruit cake!  Never!  Those hard-as-bricks, not-worthy-of-eating, fruitcakes.  The only thing a fruitcake is good for is a doorstop or a re-gift.  Who’s going to be the recipient of this re-gifted cake this year?

Trust me on this one….this recipe

Holiday Fruit Cake (Not Your Typical Re-Gifted or Door Stop Fruit Cake)

About Linda Voorhis

I’ve always had a love for cooking and read cookbooks and cooking magazines the way other people read books. They inspire me to create my own recipes and have taught me the ‘science’ of cooking, most especially baking.

Julia Child (definitely nothing veg about her, but probably the greatest skills technician) and my maternal Italian grandmother, Mary, were my first mentors. With the advent of the celebrity chef and abundance of television cooking shows, inspiration continued to be placed before me. Food, its preparation with love, and the creativity it sparks within me, became a passion of mine.
