Sandi Cornez's curator insight, March 28, 6:18 PM

You've heard that organic is best for your food purchases, however organic doesn't always work for you for a variety of reasons. Consumer reports to the rescue. 

 

Health Tips:  In addition to these great tips, remember you can feel safe buying produce that is not organic when you're not consuming the thick skin as in avocados, bananas, winter squash, pumpkins,  and eggplant. There may be others not listed. You can also buy local and in season and speak with the farmer at the farmers' markets. Sustainably grown is an option if available in your area. Many times frozen organic is lower in price than fresh. Look for sales in your grocery store.

 

Here's an information packed post "What to Do When Organic Isn't an Option" from Rodale News

Vegan Chocolate Cupcakes With Avocado "Buttercream" Frosting

Happy birthday to you! OK, so maybe it's not your birthday, but it's somebody's birthday somewhere, so there's a good reason right there to immediately bake a batch of these chocolate cupcakes smothered with homemade chocolate frosting. And when you have your first decadent bite, you just might drop the rest of your cupcake when you realize that they're low-calorie and totally vegan, plus the frosting is made with avocados instead of butter!

The healthy fats in the avocado make these cupcakes as healthy as a bowl of kale and bean soup! OK, maybe not that healthy, but healthy enough to feel good about reaching for more. Each cupcake offers almost five grams of fiber and is just 230 calories. A real-deal chocolate cupcake is 459 calories! That's a crime when you can make these chocolate gems.

From Jenny Sugar, POPSUGAR Fitness

Vegan Chocolate Cupcakes With Avocado "Buttercream" Frosting Notes

 

Be sure to use ripe avocados for the frosting.

 

Ingredients

For the cupcakes:

1 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup canola oil
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup white whole-wheat flour
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon sea salt

For the frosting:

2 ripe avocados
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3 tablespoons maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a muffin tin with 12 paper or silicone cups. Whisk together the almond milk and apple cider vinegar, and set aside for a few minutes so the milk curdles. Beat in the sugar, oil, and vanilla until foamy. In a separate bowl, combine flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Slowly beat the dry ingredients into the wet until smooth. Divide the batter evenly between the 12 cupcakes. Bake for 18-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Remove from the oven, and after a few minutes, move cupcakes to a cooling rack. While the cupcakes bake, make the frosting. Scoop out the avocado flesh, and place in a food processor. Add the cocoa powder, maple syrup, and vanilla, and puree until smooth. Frost the cooled cupcakes, and enjoy!

On 'National Meatout Day' people eat vegan food for the day, the month or even pledge to do it for the foreseeable future. Although the very idea of this might strike fear into the hearts of carnivores everywhere, there are some really tasty vegan recipes you can try, to prove to yourself just how delicious this way of eating can be.

 

Whether you are a vegan or you just want to find out how to make meat-free food which tastes satisfying, there is plenty here to whet your appetite. Eating vegan food means you can enjoy so much more than simply fruit and vegetables. Eat nuts and all your favorite seasonings and spices. You can even get vegan cheese and milk products.

Photos: A healthy vegan diet | Vegetarian and Vegan | Scoop.it
You've probably heard that eating more vegetables and less meat is healthy. Maybe you're even feeling inspired to try eating a vegan diet--which excludes all animal products, including dairy and eggs--to improve your health or lose a little weight. A vegan diet can be a healthy way to eat when your meals are full of vegetables, fruits, legumes and whole grains. You need a well-planned vegan diet to make sure you don't miss out on essential nutrients or end up eating only processed vegan foods. And even if you're just trying to adopt a more plant-based diet for better health, these tips can help you get started.
