EN-US;mso-bidi-language:AR-SA">Bake with Compassion is the annual fundraiser of
the farm animal welfare charity Compassion in World Farming, and is returning
for its fourth year, running throughout the month of October. Compassionate
Bakers in Dorset and throughout the UK will be baking with higher welfare
ingredients such as free-range eggs and organic dairy products, or using vegan
ingredients to make this a compassionate month to remember!
Sandra Hood and Sarah Smith are running a fundraising workshop on 'Nutritional
Cooking for Health & Vitality' at the Dorford Centre in Dorchester on
Saturday 20th October, showing participants how to cook
delicious, nutritious and healthy food quickly and easily with a hands-on demo,
using ingredients that can energise you, keep you slimmer, and help reduce the
risk of heart disease, diabetes, cancer and other illnesses. They will be
preparing and cooking a full menu including a starter, main meal and a yummy
pudding too! Participants will get to taste all the food during a sit down
shared meal at the end of the workshop and all food will be vegan-friendly, as
Sandra and Sarah believe a plant based diet is the way forward for a healthy
Sandra says: "We believe that factory farming is the
biggest cause of animal cruelty on the planet and is devastating for the
environment, so we want to show that eating more plant based food and less
meat, is not only much healthier and can help reduce the risk of many
illnesses, but can also help reduce the high and unsustainable demand for meat
and dairy which is why factory farms exist in the first place."
Sandra and Sarah both work as Dietitians at the Dorset
County Hospital NHS Foundation Trust. In her spare time Sandra is the voluntary
Nutritional Advisor for The Vegan Society and is author of 'Feeding Your
Vegan Infant with Confidence'. She recently carried the Olympic Torch after
being nominated for her charity work including for Compassion in World Farming
and Diebetes UK, and in 2011 she raised over £1,300 for Compassion in the
London Marathon where she was one of Dorset's fastest runners! Sarah is an
experienced cookery workshop facilitator and has previously sold her own plant
based food in London and throughout the South.
Sarah says: "I hope this will be our best workshop
yet - both inspiring and educational - and we have people coming from Devon and
even as far as Suffolk so we are really excited!"
They will also be baking some naughtier treats for
Compassionate Dorset's popular Bake With Compassion Vegan Cake Sale in
Dorchester town centre which will be on Saturday 6th October where they will
also be selling their funky farm animal t-shirts and giving away lots of free
meat-free recipes and Good Food Guides explaining how to check the labels for
high welfare meat and dairy.
Or, why not have a go at baking your own treats using only high welfare ingredients or even vegan ingredients - to impress your friends and show that you can bake yummy food without causing suffering to animals!
