Too Easy Vegan S'mores
Recipe from Chicago Vegan Foods.
We're a couple of weeks late for National S'mores Day (August 10th), but these belated vegan s'mores are guaranteed to be a delicious treat anytime. This is also the quickest, easiest recipe we've ever featured.
On a plate, top a vegan graham cracker with 3 Dandies marshmallows. Add several chocolate chips to the top. Microwave on high for about 15 seconds (or until marshmallows puff up). Top with a second vegan graham cracker and it's ready to eat. Yum!
CAMPFIRE S'MORES DIRECTIONS:
Toast the marshmallows on the end of a stick. When finished, place on top of a graham cracker, followed by a square of dark chocolate and a second cracker.

Federal Judge Strikes Down Idaho 'Ag Gag' Law as Unconstitutional, Raising Questions for Other States
(NPR) — Idaho's so-called "ag-gag" law, which outlawed undercover investigations of farming operations, is no more. A judge in the federal District Court for Idaho decided earlier this month that it was unconstitutional, citing First Amendment protections for free speech. Laws in Montana, Utah, North Dakota, Missouri, Kansas, and Iowa have also made it illegal for activists to smuggle cameras into industrial animal operations. A new North Carolina law goes into effect in January 2016. But now those laws' days could be numbered, according to the lead attorney for the coalition of animal welfare groups that sued the state of Idaho. read more...
Registered Dietitian Explains Why Soy Protein Is So Good For You
