Cherry-Chocolate Mousse Pie
Nothing says "I love you" like chocolate, and who wouldn't love this easy elegant pie? It’s made
with only five ingredients and there’s no baking involved! This pie is adapted from one of the Ridiculously Easy
recipes on Susan V’s fat-free vegan kitchen blog where you’ll find ideas for snacks,
soups, entrees, and desserts – all beautifully presented, easily recreated, temptingly tasty vegan recipes. This
one isn't fat-free, but it's absolutely delicious. Yum!
1/2 cup dried cherries
1 12-oz. box light silken tofu (or extra-firm silken tofu)
10 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 prepared Graham cracker crust
2-4 Tbs. organic sugar or maple
Cover dried cherries with 1/2 cup boiling water and soak them until soft, about 30 minutes.
Drain (and reserve) the water; put cherries into food processor, and pulse to chop.
Drain tofu and add to food processor along with vanilla; process until smooth.
Melt chocolate in double boiler or microwave.
Pour chocolate into food processor and purée, scraping down sides as needed to make sure it's well
Pour into prepared crust and chill for several hours.
For the topping, take the reserved cherry-soaking water, add sugar or maple syrup, and simmer on the stove until
it's reduced to a syrup (Tip: add some grenadine to the cherry syrup to brighten the color if desired); drizzle
over pie just before serving. Makes 8 servings.

Love a Vegan Diet
A vegan diet lowers blood sugar better than a traditional diabetes food program. That’s the
conclusion of a recent study published in this month’s issue of the Journal of the American Dietetic
Association. The study also found a vegan diet lowered LDL (bad) cholesterol, promoted weight loss, and helped
reverse heart disease.
Researchers from the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, George Washington University, and the University
of Toronto assigned 99 people with Type 2 diabetes to follow either a conventional diabetes diet or a low-fat vegan
diet. During the 18-month study, each group met with a dietician and attended nutrition and cooking lessons. The vegan
diet cut cholesterol and fat and increased fiber consumption compared to the diabetes diet. Study participants on the
vegan diet lost weight, controlled their blood sugar and LDL cholesterol, and reduced the need for diabetes medication.

This couple won our hearts over with their veggie-tale wedding. Jessica Humphries and Alvaro Tomaz
met in Brazil five years ago. Last year, when this globetrotting couple decided to wed, they planned their nuptials in
an earth-friendly way.The wedding invitations were printed on paper made from organic and recycled cotton T-shirts so
no trees were cut. Instead of wedding favors, donations were made to a charitable cause. The decorations were made from
organic fruit and flowers then donated to a retirement community. The bride’s engagement ring was a Brazilian
emerald (no diamonds, thank you). Best of all, the menu was completely vegan: appetizers, dinner, wedding cake, and
sweets. Sweet…very sweet.
