I finally have the mobile version of MVC finished. I need you guys to test it and report any problems you spot. It’s difficult to get a mobile site to work on every single mobile device and I expect there will be a few problems that need to be fixed. After I’ve gotten some feedback and am pretty confident about the site, I will have it where you will automatically be taken to the mobile site when you are surfing the site on a mobile device. The url to the mobile site is: http://myvegancookbook.com/m/
Below are screen shots of how it should appear on your mobile phone.
Today my twin brother and I launched My Vegan Garden dot com, a sister site to My Vegan Cookbook. If you don’t know, veganic gardening uses no animal products or by-products, such as bloodmeal, fish products, bone meal, feces, or other animal-origin matter, because the production of these materials is viewed as either harming animals directly, or being associated with the exploitation and consequent suffering of animals.
There are plans to build a database listing every fruit and vegetable you can imagine with techniques to control pests for each and with minimal amount of exploitation or harm to the pests and the environment as possible in mind. Besides that there will be general gardening stuff. Only 1 entry on the blog at the moment but we look forward to growing the site as we have with this one!
The media this week have proven how culpable they are in exacerbating the health crisis in America. “Pour on the olive oil: Big study finds Mediterranean-style diet cuts heart attack, stroke risk.” shouted a headline on the Global TV News website. The article went on to say/lie, “Consuming more than four tablespoons a day can significantly lower your risk of having a heart attack…” “Stock up on olive oil and nuts!!” a CNN talking head squealed. What are we, squirrels?
In case you have been under a rock, an article was recently published in the New England Journal of Medicine claiming that a Mediterranean diet is much more effective than a “low-fat diet” in preventing cardiovascular disease. No one in the media bothered to really dig deep into the study, everyone was too eager to tell everyone that they can feel good about pouring on the olive oil. The actual thing that makes the Mediterranean diet healthy, VEGETABLES, NOT being talked about.
I know many important and intelligent people in the vegan movement tout the Mediterranean diet. They need for olive oil to be beneficial because olive oil makes a plant-based diet more palatable. I can understand that. But olive oil is not good for you and that’s the truth. These same people talk about how we need to be honest in our advocacy. So why aren’t they being honest about olive oil?
What a scary thought if we did what some in the media are suggesting and consume more than 1/4 cup of olive oil a day. How is adding 70 grams of fat and 600 calories to our diet going to be beneficial? If you want to see what olive oil can do to your health, check out my latest blog entry, my before pic, I poured on the olive oil. If olive oil were that beneficial don’t you think I should have looked like my after picture?
