Vegan Jains

For hundreds of years, milk and milk products such as ghee, yogurt and paneer was integral part of Jain diet.

These days thousands of educated Jains across the world have given up consuming cow's milk and milk products such as ghee and paneer. Jains are seeing the suffering of milk producing cows and have decided to thrive on vegan diet(dairy and meat free diet).

Visit these websites and blogs to know more about the growing concept of vegan diet among Jains.

Vegan Pineapple Kesari

I love Kesari -classic Indian sweet dish. I often make Kesari, as it is very easy to make.

Yesterday, I made Pineapple Kesari and it was awesome! I followed the recipe from the blog Sharmi's Passion.

Well, I veganized the recipe. I used vegetable oil instead of ghee and used the vegan sugar(

The Pineapple Kesari was brown in color, and the taste was so good. My husband and son enjoyed eating it.

According to the recipe, Sharmilee says to use 1 and 1/2 cup of water to cook the pineapple. I had to use around 3 cups of water to cook the pineapple.

I'm sure I will be making Pineapple Kesari, whenever we buy Pineapples!

Dada J.P.Vaswani in Atlanta

Dada J.P.Vaswani , world-renowned Spiritual guide and Educator, works for the welfare of human beings and animals.

Many Indians have become vegetarian because of Dada J.P.Vaswani . Dada J.P.Vaswani tells people about the horrific conditions of animals in dairy and meat industry, during his talks. Dada J.P.Vaswani is striving hard to stop all types of killings.

Dada Vaswani stopped consuming cow's milk, after he came to know about the cruel conditions of cows in dairy farms. In an interview, he says,"I now take soy milk instead of cow's milk because the cows are very cruelly treated in factory farming. Ever since I learned about it nine or ten years ago, I gave up milk. I believe it's the food of violence. The cows are confined to a small area. They can't move and are just milk manufacturing machines."

Dada J.P.Vaswani is coming to Atlanta on May 14,2014 . He will talk on the topic - You Can Change Your Life .
