Sounds good! Can I use crunchy Almond butter or a different crunchy nut butter instead? (My body doesn't agree with peanut butter) :(

Yep, any nut butter works fine :)

It must be all the great vegan food available that the number of vegans has doubled in the US in less than 3 years. Here are two uplifting videos to help everyone understand why so many people are making this life affirming choice: and

Could you please resize the picture in your post? Pictures are not allowed to be larger than 500px, and since you edited this into your post after it was approved I had no opportunity to tell you prior.

Sorry about that. Can I put it behind a cut instead? I don't know how to resize it. Not very techie :S
rhiannon_666 4th-Jun-2012 06:18 pm (UTC)
Yep, that's absolutely fine.

I believe in rich text mode it lets you resize it if you want a no fuss way to resize pics in future.
