Hi,

see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soy_yogurt


Have a look at the 'External Links' in the wiki-article.

"An important term for meditative absorption is samadhi. We often translate that as concentration, but that can suggest a certain stiffness. Perhaps unification is a better rendition, as samadhi means to bring together. Deep samadhi isn't at all stiff. It's a process of letting go of other things and coming to a unified experience." - Bhikkhu Anālayo

It is heretical to even think such a thought!
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

This thread is funny! One of the more humorous ones lately. I know it was not the intention, but I found the posts funny and entertaining. Anyway, nothing to contribute except for this comment; carry on.

or vegan Bacon, and vegetarian fish fingers.
I suppose it is more of a thickened goop, but when one is accommodating one should accommodate :)

but I do have to say rice drink is very nice

My dog enjoys the fake bacon strip treats. I often think vegan bacon looks and smells the same. I'll pass, thank you. :thinking:

hi friend,

i just wanted to add that i would be cautious with the recommendation to use unpasteurized milk and let the naturally occurring bacteria do the fermentation... i would say this puts you at severe risk for contamination, especially if you using conventionally raised dairy. what you can do is either buy a starter culture or use a scoop of store bought yogurt. if you need recomendations for a starter or for a store yogurt to use, just let me know. i also can give you recipes to make vegan/vegetarian versions of any meat product you like, re: bacon, etc.

I am not using unpasturised milk, I could get some but it would probbably be more trouble than it was worth :-(
but sure send me any recipe you have for vegetarian stuff, I enjoy trying new things.
