About the Author: Stieg Larsson

Stieg LarssonSteig Larsson is known for his Millennium Trilogywhich a fictional book series that tries to combat sexual violence. However, most people are unaware of why he wrote it.

After receiving at typewriter for his twelfth birthday. Three years later he witnessed a gang rape of a girl named Lizabeth. He said he regretted that he didn’t do anything to help her and afterwards he tried to identify the men that did it.

His original name was Stig, but it was changed because one of his friends was also named Stig Larsson and it became confusing. He became editor and coeditor of many sci-fi magazines such as Sfaren and Fijah.

The Vegan Cook Book I’m Using for College

Okay, so this book is made by Peta -but keep in mind I DO NOT fully support what they are doing. However, I do support the fact that they have made this cook book to help vegans that are in college or simply don’t have much time to cook.

Vegan college cook bookMy favorite section of this book would have to be the Ramen section. It gives recipes that call for the ramen noodles. For now I’m going to use the processed ones that come with the seasoning packets -but of course I’m just going to use the noodles. Once I get a feel for eating vegan, I might make my own ramen, but for now this book looks like it’s going to help me transition better.

I don’t know how I feel about some of the alternate foods like vegan meat. I’d prefer to eat something that wasn’t designed to replace something else. Sure, I like coconut milk, almond milk and tofu, but calling it a replacement sounds a lot less appetizing. Vegan foods shouldn’t have to be a replacement of a dairy or meat product to taste good. I think avocados taste amazing on it’s own and so do many other vegan foods. I think I’m going to like most of the recipes in this book, but I was kind of hoping they’d be a little more unique.
