I'm looking for some vegan dog food recipes.

My friend has a poor pup that's allergic to just about every kind of meat. Prepared vegan dog food exists, but it's insanely expensive, so I'm interested in seeing if any of you have some vegan dog food recipes that she can make at home. I would be most interested in large-scale recipes that she can cook, portion out, and then freeze until needed. Thanks!

Gluten free, kosher, vegan and halal?

A while ago, a co-worker was joking that his dietary restrictions were that he could only eat foods that were gluten free, kosher, vegan and halal. I'd like to find such a food to bring in. Is there anything that meets all four requirements? If not, what foods would meet as many of these as possible?

I'll be in Arnold, CA this weekend: activity suggestions?

We are planning to check out Murphys and also maybe go hiking in Stanislaus National Forest or Calaveras Big Trees State Park. Can anyone suggest a specific trail/area/place that would be good for novice/intermediate hikers? Or other activities/attractions in the area? Good picnic spots? Also, any ideas on where we might find vegan food (restaurant or grocery store)? Thanks!

Help me get my food budget under control

My food budget has always been higher than I'd like due to the fact that I eat a lot, and generally eat very healthy. Lately, though, it's been spiraling out of control. I'm looking for suggestions on how to stop blowing money on expensive things I can't afford, as well as how to generally get things under control given my very specific dietary needs (would-be ethical vegan who doesn't process starches well).

Vegan traveling to New Orleans with non-vegan parents

Vegan/Vegetarian Options on the Grand Circle Route?

In late spring, I will be taking a road trip with some friends through the southwest. We'll stop at grocery stores to get a cooler and provisions, and we'd prefer not to eat entirely in restaurants, but that will have to happen sometimes. One of my friends is mostly vegan, definitely vegetarian, and I am somewhat skeptical of dining options in small rural towns. Where can we find decent food on our route? [more inside]

Help me make foods taste more garlicky.

I made a white bean/collard green soup in my pressure cooker yesterday. The recipe called for six cloves of garlic, and I used eight. The soup was good, but I couldn't taste the garlic. I used to make a 40-garlic chicken that I loved, but now I'm eating a vegan diet for Reasons, and I haven't figured out how to make my life more garlicky. (More inside - and please, no anti-vegan comments.) [more inside]

Quiet restaurant/pub with vegan options near St. Lawrence Market (TO)?

I want to have a series of conversations next week in a quiet restaurant (no loud music or background noise) which has at least a couple of decent vegan options on the menu. I'm hoping for something in the St. Lawrence area of Toronto, or, failing that, Corktown or downtown would be good. The group would be 3-5 people. Someplace with entrees under $30; $10-15 entrees best. Any suggestions?

You can teach me, but please don't charge.

Earlier today I caught a show on TV where they showed a factory where "milk" was produced from different grains and nuts. That piqued my interest to try to make some at home. I can google some recipes (in fact I already have), but I'm interested in hearing plant milk recipes that other mefites have tried and enjoyed, and that were easy (ish) to make at home using only equipment normally found in kitchens (or other parts of the home for that matter).

Name my vegan carnival food business

We're launching a food business/truck/cart/booth that'll serve vegan versions of standard American carnival food (hot dogs, hamburgers, corn dogs, mini doughnuts, malts, etc.). It'll be in the context of other regular (i.e. non-vegan) carnival food vendors, serving a largely omnivorous crowd. But we can't come up with a name. We'd like the name to be relevant to our offerings, but we're finding it difficult to make any reference without it sounding potentially judgmental or self-righteous. Any ideas?

What should I make to bring to a vegan family?

I have a vegan colleague that is going through a medical situation. I would like to bring his family a meal that would help make their life easier. In traditional circumstances I have made a lasagna or typical pasta dish but in this circumstance I would obviously like to respect their dietary decisions. Any recommendations? I'm also open to the suggestions of pursuing something else to make their life easier.

What vegetarian practices are most abhorrent to vegans?

I'm vegetarian, and don't eat either, but I'd certainly consider humanely-raised mutton to be much more "ethical" than, say, battery-farmed pork. What would be the equivalent for vegans? I'm interested in adopting some vegan practices, but don't feel ready to go the whole hog yet. What changes to my lifestyle would seem most high-priority, from an ethical perspective, to someone who was vegan?
