Time to run

MyHowl August 2 - 8

Saturday
First run in my new running watch today. I had to replace my Garmin 910XT (very expensive); so I am trying the Garmin Forerunner 620. It appears to be an excellent running watch with many fantastic metrics. Still, I struggle with new devices and generally experience a learning curve. Today was not any different; but the watch seems to have worked in spite of my ignorance. Perhaps I will read the manual now.



Monday
If you haven't seen this film, take the time to do so.

Using hidden cameras and never-before-seen footage, EARTHLINGS chronicles the day-to-day practices of the largest industries in the world, all of which rely entirely on animals for profit.
EARTHLINGS is a 2005 documentary film about humanity's use of animals as pets, food, clothing, entertainment, and for scientific research. The film is narrated by Joaquin Phoenix, features music by Moby, was directed by Shaun Monson, and was co-produced by Maggie Q, all of whom are practicing vegans.
"Narrated by Academy Award Nominee Joaquin Phoenix and featuring music by the critically acclaimed platinum artist Moby, EARTHLINGS is a documentary film about humankind's complete economic dependence on animals raised for pets, food, clothing, entertainment and scientific research. Using hidden cameras and never-before-seen footage, EARTHLINGS chronicles the day-to-day practices of the largest industries in the world, all of which rely entirely on animals for profit. Powerful, informative, controversial and thought-provoking, EARTHLINGS is by far the most comprehensive documentary ever produced on the correlation between nature, animals and human economic interests."


Sunday 

Here is a great and healthy vegan recipe. I have made this on multiple occasions (and I am no chef) and it is delicious. Give it a try.


Ingredients 

  • 1/3 cup vegan margarine
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1/2 cup soy milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)


Preparation
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Cream together the vegan margarine and sugar, then stir in the flour and baking powder and baking soda. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well.
Pour into an oiled bread pan and bake for 50 minutes.
