Episode 115: The Best Four Kitchen Gadgets

Ep: 115 The Best Four Kitchen Gadgets or Tools

Today’s episode is about making life easier in the kitchen. I talk about my new favorite toy, The Instant Pot, The Vitamix, The Crockpot and the Food Processor. I love these gadgets or tools. It’s like they are my best friends of the kitchen.

I go over a couple recipes like my favorite tomato soup in my Vitamix, its so easy, cut up roma tomatoes until Vitamix is almost full, add a half of an yellow onion, toss in a half of a serrano, some salt and pepper, garlic powder, onion powder and a 1/4 of one vegetable bouillon cube, if you can find fresh dill about a hand full. If not its nice to add some dried dill, but the soup is good without it. And finally, the secret ingredient is about a quarter cup of cashew nuts or macadamia nuts. You can add more, it will be thicker and more calorie dense if you add more. Run the Vitamix for about 5 or 6 minutes on high. PERFECTION!

I also go over my love of these gadgets, but my take away message is to eat at home as often as you can so you know what is in your food and you eat better. It is also cheaper and fun.

Thank you for listening to Hemingway’s Heart. My name is Robyne Hemingway.

Episode 110: Love and Compassion with Nathan Runkle~Mercy For Animals

Ep: 110…. Love, Compassion, Connection, Empathy and Core Values.

Today’s Episode is more than a book interview.  We dive into hope and inspiration about what could be; a world free from unneeded pain and suffering.

Nathan started an organization 18 years ago that devotes its entire existence to advocating on behalf of farm animals, especially factory farm animals. The organization is called Mercy for Animals.

And his book entitled MERCY FOR ANIMALS is available September 12th, 2017 on all platforms. You can also reach out and get involved @ mercyforanimals.org  or the good food institute @ GFI.org

In this podcast we cover a lot of ground, talking about animal rights, laws that protect the factory farms such as ag gag laws and libel laws from transparency and  we talk about going vegan and vegetarian or even being meatless on Mondays.

We talk about the circle of compassion and how it is growing but all of us can divert our gaze and ignore that murder is a part of our everyday lives often every time we choose to eat meat, dairy and eggs.

Nathan is very good at asking not for perfection but for progress. You can choose to get involved by donating or by volunteering, or you can take a stand to reduce your consumption of animal products.

Remember, it’s about the “kind” choice, the acts of love. Animals, all animals have the ability to feel pain and in today’s factory farms, the abuse is insane and while, you may not know it,  eating meat is no longer required. You can choose plants, you can choose your core values to be ethical, loving, and filled with compassion.

Please enjoy this interview with Nathan Runkle and get a copy of his new book Mercy for Animals.

Episode 109: What the Plant Milk Is Going On?

Ep: 109 What the Plant Milk Is Going On?

Today, we talk about plant milk; soy, almond, coconut, oat, hemp, and rice. Why plant milk? First, the number one reason is milks made from plants are  a healthier choice to milk made by a Cow’s or any animal for that matter, especially when you make the plant milk at home.

All you need is clean filtered water and whatever you want to make your milk from. It helps to have a high powered blending such as Blendtec or Vitamix, but you can make it with any blender it just won’t be as smooth.

2. The second reason to add plant milks to your life is convenience. You can store boxed plant milks for a year or longer and you can store all the items that you  will need to make plant milks for just as long if not longer. This makes food creation fast so much easier. You can make smoothies, soups, cereals, baked goods, ice cream, desserts and so on. Also, making these items is super easy. There is no real skill required.

Once you make the any of the milks you will be so happy you ventured into this world of plant milks.

I also talk briefly about how cow’s milk is laden with chemicals, hormones, pus and antibiotics. You may want to watch some videos about the dairy industry and factory farming for added insights and information. It is truly a terrible industry and will aid you with the information needed to know what is really contained in dairy milk.

Most plant milks are 4 cups filtered water to 1 cup whatever you are making the milk from. But, remember the less water the richer and thicker the milk. To make it sweet you can add dates and or maple syrup. A pinch of salt and a squeeze of lemon is also a nice little addition create a nice flavor.

I hope you explore the wonderful world of plant milks and venture into making it at home.
