|Vegan Strawberry Shortcake|
We recently celebrated my son's 15th birthday. I intended to make him Strawberry Shortcake but wasn't able to find a recipe that sounded fabulous. I made him Strawberry Cupcakes with Vegan Cream Cheese Frosting instead.

Today I found a great recipe for Strawberry Shortcake on the Genesis 129 Project website. I not only found a fabulous recipe but also beautifully filmed video cooking instructions.
Tony DeJesus, Genesis 129 Project creator has been a vegan for a year and this Project is his mission.
"The Genesis 1:29 Project is a mission that we took upon to live up to the standard of Genesis 1:29 and to see if it truly is a benefit for us. This will be a movement to take what God had started in the Garden of Eden and bring it to our present day. In a way the purpose for this blog is to be a delicious journey into a vegan diet and do our best to bring you information in an exciting and spiritual way that will take the fear out of being a vegan. By the way, has anyone read Genesis 1:29 yet?"
Genesis 1:29 reads:
And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.
Regardless of your religious beliefs, Tony's recipes and beautiful videos are a real treat.
If I have time and fresh strawberries this weekend, I'll make Tony's Strawberry Shortcake recipe for my son.
California strawberries are currently sprayed with Methyl Iodide, a known carcinogen and neurotoxin. Please go to the 'Letters' section on this blog for a letter written to Lisa Jackson, EPA Administrator requesting she reinstate a ban on methyl iodide in California.
