Vegetarian or Vegan - Similarities and Differences

The two diets, vegetarian and vegan, are quite similar in nature but also have some notable differences.  Vegetarian recipes typically consist of plant-based ingredients like grains, fruits, vegetables, legumes and nuts.  On the other hand, vegan recipes eliminate all animal products – including dairy and eggs. Without access to these nutrition sources, it can be more challenging to create a balanced meal plan as a vegan dieter. However, many substitutes can be made which make delicious dishes while still being mindful of dietary restrictions. The primary difference between vegetarian and vegan recipes is the lack of animal-based ingredients.  Vegetarians may include dairy and eggs in their meal, while vegans typically do not.  Vegetarian diets are often easier to follow as some ingredients such as cheese and honey can serve as "filler" foods for those who find it difficult to get enough nutrients from a restrictive diet.  Additionally, vegetarians are more likely to find

It makes nine regular biscuits.
Preparation time: 5’ minutes
Baking time: 15’ minutes

Digestive biscuits are ideal for a diet snack or to form the basis of cheesecakes. Up to now I never thought of baking them, but since I am on a diet now, I decided it is time to learn how to make them.

I discovered that:
1) they are extremely easy to make,
2) the ingredients are simple, you can find them anywhere, and
3) there are no eggs involved.

Below you will be able to find all the preparation steps. Try them, I am sure you will love every single bite :-)!!!

In a large bowl, sift together the flour and baking powder. Mix in the oatmeal. 
Add the butter and sugar to the mixture, and mix well. 

Stir in the milk until mixture forms a thick paste.

Form the biscuits with the help of a cookie spoon.

Bake 15' to 18' minutes, or until golden.

Let cool on wire rack. Store in an airtight tin.

  18. Hi! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing months of hard work due to no data backup.
