I am so sorry I neglected you

I am so sorry I have not been participating in veganmofo, I have gotten side tracked, once again. I am so easily distracted these days.

I want talk about Dreena's chicpea patties I made a few weeks ago and baked, they were okay. Well, today I took them out of the freezer this morning and then later for dinner I fried them in a couple tablespoons of olive oil, they were outrageously delicious!!! I also made some mashed potatoes with EB and green beans. It was so good, I am still dreaming about it two hours later.

I also want to know why(!!!!!) the pasteurization of raw almonds and organic leafy greens is not all over the news. The FDA is going to start spraying beautiful raw almonds with rocket fuel (a.k.a a known carcinogen also banned in Europe) and they are also considering doing this to leafy greens as well, all the while continuing to label them organic! Am I the only one who feels like this is the beginning of the end of organics? Maybe I am over reacting, but it is certainly a turn in the wrong direction for our health and the health of our planet. If there is anyone out there that knows of anything more I can do please let me know ASAP.

I have been so outraged by the almonds. I no no longer buy raw almonds because I don't want to eat poison chemicals. Apparently they are already treating the almonds, so now I buy cashews and pistachios instead. It makes me furious though that people are so quiet about it.

I had no idea about the leafy greens. That makes me feel ill that they want to do this to our food supply, especially to the organics. Thanks for blogging about it. Maybe more people will start to pay attention.
