I've been seeing some stories that the food variety at #COP27 includes many meat dishes. This is a pity because Egypt has a lot of delicious #vegetarian/#vegan dishes!

Here's a thread about the ones that I know and love, including links to recipes.

Let's go! 🧵🧑‍🍳🍽️

Let's start from one of my favourites: ta'ameya aka. Egyptian falafel.

These will blow your mind. They're like falafel but actually quite different in taste. They are green inside because of all the added herbs, yummy!

Then there's this thing that goes very well with pita bread, ta'ameya or by itself: ful medames or just ful.

There's a legendary place in Alexandria that serves the best ful ta'ameya, this bean thing combined with falafel and pita bread.

I was recently in Switzerland, mostly around Berne. Since there are municipal elections in #Ontario, I thought that it would be nice to talk more about quality of life beyond lower taxes. #onpoli #topoli 1/14

Lets know
How I$lam Engages in Economic Jihad Through Halal Industry ?
It is important to remember that while just 15% of the population of the country are Muslims, the proportion of halal meat marketed in India is substantially greater and growing annually.
Since, a minority section of the population deeply cares about the kind of meat it prefers and the rest 85 per cent couldn’t care less about the method of meat preparation,
, it is inevitable that the minority population will end up thrusting its religious food choice on the whole country as it is convenient for sellers to just provide #halal meat.

🥦Following our earlier post for #COP26 on #vegetarianism, we wanted to share some insights & quotes from #suffrage activists who *were* #vegetarians 🥒🌶🍅

☮️ Vegetarianism was associated w/ peace, & standing up against the poor treatment of fellow living creatures 🐄🐑🦆🐖
​1/
📣This quote from MrsDespard describes how #vegetarianism was linked to #socialjustice:

​🗣“The #women ’s movement relates to the other great movements of the world…The awakened instinct which feels the call of the sub-human, which says ‘I am the voice of the voiceless.'"
​2/
🥖🐁Some #vegetarian #suffragettes who went to prison got better food. Nancy John describes prisoners declaring they were vegetarian to avoid eating mouse-eaten bread.
​🗣“When they said they were vegetarians they were given milk - it was really the milk that kept them alive.” 3/

1. Brazil and Argentina lobby against evidence in the draft scientific UN/IPCC report on the need to reduce meat consumption to cut greenhouse gas emissions.

@BBCNews reports this, based on leaked documents obtained by @UE (follow them).

2. The leaked documents also reveal how Australia pushed back against the need to phase out coal power plants to tackle climate change.

That is like removing references to quit smoking in a scientific report on preventing lung cancer.

3. Australia is not alone: it is also revealed how OPEC and Saudi Arabia are lobbying the UN's climate change experts to delete the finding that the world needs to rapidly phase out fossil fuels.

And #COP26 will start in only ten days...

#India isn't the #vegetarian model some claim it to be. Watch this excellent summary by @sakie339 to understand why:

Staggering statistics of malnourishment in children & women, reinforced by an aggressive criminalization of valuable foods by ideologists.
"Nutritional indicators/social security schemes were a cause for concern even before the pandemic, which the pandemic has aggravated. With the large number of Covid cases in India, we need to ask if a better nourished population would have handled the pandemic better"

How to even start making sense of this? The weirdest scheme proposed by the FReSH/WBCSD food multinationals

"World" should eat less salt, but single continents can also have more?😬 And that's a lot #nuts btw! (up to 2400% increase for Latin America -😅)

From the same document, a case study: Kellogg's fake meat burger. Claiming that plant-based is "better for people and planet" and that the main barrier is prejudice because people think it "will not taste as good" ???
Nah, reason why most don't want this stuff is probably because the ingredients look like this. I don't see a lot of "plants" here that could be "good for people & planet"? Any plants at all? Only extracts & additives.

And I doubt that this is a good basis for tasting like beef.

Let’s take a moment to remember the #suffragists who were #vegetarian, a thread. They recognized how oppressions were connected. Some of the information is from my book, The Sexual Politics of Meat now celebrating its 30th anniversary of publication. #suffrage /1
Let’s be clear: Susan B. #Anthony was NOT a vegetarian. She was happy to get to Delmonico’s in Manhattan after staying with the #Grimke sisters, who were. She did attend a vegetarian banquet in 1853, where the toast was to “Total Abstinence, Women’s Rights, & Vegetarianism.” /2
Matilda Joslyn #Gage, a radical activist & co-editor of the 1st 3 volumes of “The History of Woman Suffrage” with Elizabeth Cady Stanton & Susan B. Anthony, was a vegetarian. She was later written out of the history for her radical views. See the work of @Swagner711 /3

food has always been an important part of my life. my southern grandma taught me how to navigate in a kitchen and my mom has always been on her #plantbased+ herbal medicine wave. i knew my journey wouldn't be complete without space to grow my own food 🌱👩🏾‍🌾
i comitted to #vegetarian in high school, veganism around 24 and now at 31 i've been red meat, poultry and raw dairy free for 15 years.

Healthy diet is a key to the happy life.

When the whole world is battling with Corona, it is even more imp to look at the ways in which we can improve our immunity & avoid spread of such pandemics.

A #thread below to highlight benefits of a meat free life👇

#healthylifestyle
1. Reduce Risk of Heart Disease

Vegetarian diet is,
👉lower in saturated fat & cholesterol
👉higher in plant nutrients
Which reduce heart diseases.

A low fat diet is the single most effective way to stop the progression of coronary artery disease or prevent it entirely.
2. Cancer Prevention

🦀~70% of all diseases, including one third of all cancers, are related to diet

Meat,
👉is devoid of fiber & nutrients that have a protective effect
👉 has carcinogenic compounds such as HCA & PAH that increase cancer risk

One for the vegetarians tonight - Mushroom & Hazelnut Carbonara. This is a really quick dish to make, and it looks pretty special too. #coronacooking #vegetarian
Ingredients:
300g mushrooms
2 cloves of garlic
2 tbsp chopped fresh thyme
1 tbsp chopped fresh rosemary
80ml white wine
250ml vegetable stock
50g hazelnuts, roasted, skinned & halved
80g butter
40g grated fresh parmesan
4 egg yolks
400g dried spaghetti
Bring a large pot of water to the boil. Add a good bit of salt. The water needs to be really hot, with a good bubbling boil, so don’t add the paste before it gets to that point. If you do, the pasta won’t cook properly and will likely end up sticky and a bit tasteless.
