    You will recall last year that The Vegan Society’s “Ambassador,” marathon runner Fiona Oakes, appeared on BBC and ran away from veganism just as quickly as she could, stating that veganism isn’t “for everyone, I’m saying that it’s not probably for very many people.” At their June 27 meeting, The Vegan Society elected yet another “Ambassador”–a comedian named Sara Pascoe. who, in this essay states that veganism “is not a lifestyle I would recommend for everyone.” She states further in that same essay that she is “not…

    There’s probably never been a time when so many people have been interested in giving veganism a try. What do you think aspiring vegans need the most help with when it comes to embracing a lifestyle free of animal products? Yes, it feels like there is more interest in vegan living than ever before, and it’s a very exciting time to be immersed in this lifestyle. I think aspiring vegans mainly need simple, practical advice and support for shifting to a plant based life, including information as basic as knowing where to shop and how to prepare vegan food.

  • Australia to Ban Super Trawlers

    erikmarcus
    24 Dec 2014 | 11:01 am
    One of the greatest enemies of the oceans, the super trawler, is set to be permanently banned from Australian waters. Super trawlers are massive ships—well over 100 meters long—that decimate fisheries by scooping up tens of thousands of fish at a time. Many of them even carry large-scale processing units and freezers, enabling them to stay at sea for weeks on end. If you’re looking for one of the key villains behind the fact that most of the world’s fisheries are in decline, look no further than super trawlers. Beyond the vast numbers of fish they kill, the giant nets these…

    The most stupid lawsuit in the entire history of stupid lawsuits has just been dropped, thanks in no small part to the litigators realizing that it was, well, a stupid lawsuit with zero chance of success. Mayo giant Unilever, which owns the Hellman’s and Best Foods brands, has dropped its lawsuit against Hampton Creek’s Just Mayo, just one day after the small startup announced it had attracted another $90 million in financing. Unilever filed the lawsuit against Hampton Creek for violating truth-in-labeling laws, since there is an obscure 1957 FDA regulation specifying that…

  • Pressure Canner Chili

    5 Aug 2015 | 6:58 pm
    This is part two of my pressure canning recipe series (for more explanation of the canning process, see Part One). The recipe is Isa's Meat Beany Chili supersized to make seven large jars. Having chili in the pantry is great for those days when you want a chili dog, or a quick lunch for the kids.INGREDIENTSMakes seven 1 quart/litre jars- 1.5 cups dry black beans- 1.5 cups dry red kidney beans- 1/4 cup oil- 4 cups chopped onion- 3 cups chopped green pepper- 3/4 cup chopped garlic- 1/2 cup chili powder- 1/4 cup oregano- 2 tbsp cumin- 1/2 tsp ground cloves- 1 tbsp salt- 2 cups brown lentils- 1…

    Full disclosure: I have posted this recipe, more or less, before. But this is the version without so much rat in it.A friend surprised me today by dropping off a basket of freshly picked strawberries, and if a pie/tart is what you are after then I think this is the perfect way to enjoy strawberries in their prime. The only thing new this time around is the tart shell (I have posted a tart shell recipe before). I don't buy vegan cream cheese on a regular basis so I hope the use of aquafaba makes this recipe more accessible. I think it made for a better shell as well--crisp and durable, yet…

These are thin and crispy and yet still chewy--exactly like a chocolate chip cookie should be. The recipe is adapted from The Essentials of Baking.INGREDIENTSMakes 18-24 cookies- 1 1/4 cups (200g) all purpose flour- 1 tsp baking soda- 1/2 tsp salt (only if using salted margarine/butter)- 1/2 cup (125g) margarine or butter- 1/2 cup (105g) packed brown sugar- 1/4 cup plus 2 tbsp (90g) white sugar- 3 tbsp…
  • Pressure Canned Beans

    23 Jun 2015 | 6:35 pm
    This is the first post in a series of three on pressure canning. Pressure canners are relatively inexpensive (around $130) and can save you money in the long run by providing an economical way to can vegetables, beans, and other low-acid foods. Also, you don't have to worry about BPA in cans, and you can control the amount of salt that goes into the canned foods. This first instalment is canned beans--a convenient staple for any pantry. INGREDIENTS/EQUIPMENT- 8 to 10oz dried beans per 1 litre/1 quart jar (see note below)- boiling water- canning jars with lids and rings- pressure…

    Originally posted on : James McWilliams wrote a new blog piece called Modest Proposal. He critiques the vegan movement as not self-reflexive and also makes the observation that the movement is rooted in anti-intellectualism.

And yet, one year ago, I signed up quietly for Ironman Boulder.  Outside of my coach and members of my team, I didn't tell anyone.  After so vehemently proclaiming my disdain for the Iron distance, I didn't want the pressure, or the mocking, to distract my training.  So I didn't blog about it, I didn't post on Facebook about it, I didn't tweet it... I just trained.Why would I put myself through another Ironman race?

    Just like the changing of the seasons themselves, the life cycle of a garden is predictable, yet invariably astonishing. It seems so improbable that such tiny seeds could ever be filled with life and produce edible fruit that it truly takes me by surprise, every single year, when I can reach out and pop that first tiny cherry tomato into my mouth. It’s the most natural process on earth and still it tastes like magic. The first few harvests repeat this very same process; the wonder, the amazement, and the adoration of such impeccably fresh produce growing right in my backyard. Doing…

    Like countless other American children, I had an unshakable affinity for mac and cheese even before I could properly pronounce the words to request it. Elbows, twists, ambiguous character shapes that would better be described as pasta amoeba; they were all greeted with enthusiasm, as long as they came from that magical blue box. I had never even heard of such a thing as baked macaroni and cheese until I hit high school, and by then it was much too late to swap allegiances. Soft noodles slowly drowning in a pool of neon yellow cheese sauce were the only thing for me, and no bread crumbs,…

    For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction; applied to baked goods, this theory could be interpreted to say that for every brownie, there is a blondie. Isn’t science great? Thus, when my brownie crisps were received with such voracious enthusiasm, I knew right away that there would need to be a round two for this experiment. Boasting the same satisfying crunch in a lighter golden-brown package, these sweet squares are the perfect contrast to the dark, devilish rendition that inspired them. I can’t say that one is better than the other- In fact, I think it would be…

Why did you have to deprive me the glory of unleashing brownie crisps upon the hungry, sweet-toothed masses? Granted, I’m far from the first person to invent the concept of thin, crunchy planks of brownie goodness, but earlier offerings were hardly widespread, and far from affordable. You just had to make them so easily available, effortlessly satisfying chocolate cravings across the country, no hunting or penny pinching…

It’s not the only ingredient in a properly equipped kitchen, but without it, nothing is possible. It’s a shame then that it’s so frequently taken for granted. Used every day without a second thought, abused on hard coconut shells and allowed to grow pitifully dull, I’m just as guilty as anyone. My Global knife has served me well for years, but when I was approached by Ergo Chef with the…

  • Marble Cake

    22 Jul 2015 | 10:33 am
    I have been baking lots of cakes lately. Sadly, time to blog has become quite limited and so I am unable to put thing online at a regular pace. Today I decided to steal a little tie out of my schedule to share a recipe for my favorite marble cake. I usually make an eggless version of this but I thought I'd like to share a recipe that uses eggs today.Continue reading »

  • Sweet Red Onion and Cilantro Quick Bread | Eggless Baking

    1 Apr 2015 | 7:31 pm
    When I first started baking bread regularly, one of my go to recipe would be Quick Bread or Cheats Bread as I like to call it. No yeast, no kneading, no shaping by hand, and most importantly no waiting!! From start to finish an average quick bread can be ready in just over an hour. Warm, soft, super delicious with globs of butter, a good quick bread can make your day. I usually make these breads for breakfast, but you can bake them at night, cool  them, wrap them in foil and save them in the refrigerator for the next day. Planning a family get together? Quick breads are perfect - bake and…

  • CHEESEY VEGAN KALE & SUMMER SQUASH TORTA (ITALIAN-STYLE SAVORY TART) WITH CRISPY LOW-FAT OLIVE OIL PASTRY

    Bryanna Clark Grogan
    16 Aug 2015 | 9:11 pm
    A few days ago I was craving "Torta"-- an Italian savory vegetable tart. or pie made with olive oil pastry and common all over Italy. This type of pie is especially common in the Italian province of Liguria, on the Italian Riviera, where my paternal grandmother’s family originated. It’s a large, thin double-crusted tart baked on a pizza pan. The thin olive oil dough (a little different from the olive oil pastry I used for a fruit pie here) is surprisingly pliable and easy to work with.Though now considered a gourmet treat, torte were born of necessity—in earlier times wheat was…

    Bryanna Clark Grogan
    3 Aug 2015 | 6:06 pm
    I have alot veggies to use up this week, so I was busy this morning!  The first thing I made was a lovely soup from Nava Atlas' wonderful book, "Wild About Greens". It's called Italian-Style Potato & Escarole Soup, but the recipe notes add that broccoli rabe (rapini) can be used instead of the escarole-- just the thing to use half of the big bunch of rapini in my fridge.This veggie-full soup is easy to make and so delicious!  We're having it for dinner tonight.  You can access the recipe from Nava's website here. I followed it exactly, but used broccoli rabe (rapini) for…

    I must confess that Julie Hasson inspired this dessert with her scrumptious-looking creamy vegan chocolate-crushed vegan "Oreo"-topped pie that I never got to taste a  demo we did in Portland OR together several years ago.  So, I devised my own recipe for my old Vegan Feast subscription newsletter 10 years ago and now I'm going to share the slightly revised and updated recipe with you here.  It makes a fabulous summer celebration dessert-- for a birthday, perhaps.Printable CopyBRYANNA'S VEGAN ESPRESSO CHOCOLATE "OREO" ICE CREAM PIEServes 12I do love "Oreo"type…

    19 Jul 2015 | 4:38 pm
     I was lucky enough to get a copy of Miyoko's new book to review and to participate in the "blog tour" for the book.  Miyoko Schinner is well-known for her ground-breaking book "Artisan Vegan Cheese" (2012), which I own. (I must confess, though, that I haven't made very recipes out of it due to all the nuts required-- a bit too rich for our way of eating, and I lack the space to air-dry cheeses--but I love her easy Meltable Mozzarella recipe!) In any case, I've been following Miyoko since her first book, "The Now and Zen Epicure" (now out of print) was published in 1991, and I…

    Scott and I visited Houston, Texas last week for Scott's birthday :) Scott is a baseball fanatic, with the goal of visiting every Major League ballpark (Houston was #17), so his birthday present this year was using all our miles to go to Houston :) AND while our team lost, it was a no hitter game!

    Animal Rights: The Abolitionist Approach

  • Vegan Advocacy is the Only Solution

    Gary L. Francione
    4 Aug 2015 | 4:58 am
    The rich, bloated new welfarist charities tell us we have to promote welfarist “baby steps”–such as cage-free eggs and crate-free pork, and the Whole Foods Animal Welfare Rating system–in order to move things forward. All of these groups reject veganism as a moral baseline. Think about the perversity of their position: they are claiming we need to promote exploitation to move toward no exploitation. These groups partner with institutional exploiters and actually promote supposedly more “humane” animal exploitation. That makes no sense–morally or…
  • Sea Shepherd Weighs In on Cecil the Lion: Insisting on Veganism is “Purism” and “Elitist”

    Gary L. Francione
    1 Aug 2015 | 10:08 am
    Paul Watson of the Sea Shepherd has weighed in on the controversy over Cecil the lion. Watson takes aim at those of us who make the point that there is absolutely no morally significant difference between killing animals for sporting pleasure and killing animals for palate pleasure, and that our objecting to the killing of Cecil requires us to reject killing the other 60+ billion animals (not counting sea animals) we kill to eat. In “The Cult of Competitive Purism,” Watson maintains that those of us who take this position are “elitist” and guilty of…
  • Adventures in Moral Schizophrenia: Cecil the Lion

    Gary L. Francione
    29 Jul 2015 | 9:16 am
    If you are upset about the killing of Cecil the Lion and you are not a vegan, then you are suffering from moral schizophrenia. There is no difference between “Cecil” and all of the animals you eat who do not have names but who value their lives as much as the lion valued his. So please, if you think animals matter, go vegan. It is the only rational response to the recognition of the moral value of animals. If you are not vegan, please go vegan. Veganism is about nonviolence. First and foremost, it’s about nonviolence to other sentient beings. But it’s also about nonviolence to…

    You will recall last year that The Vegan Society’s “Ambassador,” marathon runner Fiona Oakes, appeared on BBC and ran away from veganism just as quickly as she could, stating that veganism isn’t “for everyone, I’m saying that it’s not probably for very many people.” At their June 27 meeting, The Vegan Society elected yet another “Ambassador”–a comedian named Sara Pascoe. who, in this essay states that veganism “is not a lifestyle I would recommend for everyone.” She states further in that same essay that she is “not…

This will be an important tool in our efforts to engage in creative, nonviolent vegan advocacy. If you are not vegan, please go vegan. Veganism is about nonviolence. First and foremost, it’s about nonviolence to other sentient beings. But it’s also about nonviolence to the earth and nonviolence to yourself.

  • The Killing of Cecil and Other Fronts in the War on Predators

    Wayne Pacelle
    28 Aug 2015 | 1:14 pm
    Yesterday New Mexico game commissioners approved a plan to allow the snaring of cougars on nine million acres of state trust lands. What’s the most dangerous predator in the world?  The polar bear, or the great white shark, or the Siberian tiger? Not one of them comes close to the track record of homo sapiens as predator. We kill other carnivores at a more intense and severe rate than any predator kills their top prey within any ecosystem, according to a new study in the journal Science. Carnivore protection and conservation was not even a subject of discussion until the later part of the…

    14 Aug 2015 | 11:19 am
    There are many many vegan zucchini bread recipes out there. You can choose from any of the hundreds, but I really like Isa’s at The Post Punk Kitchen for many reasons. I prefer to make just one bread, and don’t always trust the halving of recipes to function so well. I also prefer the applesauce over flax eggs in most baking recipes. As we have a big walnut tree out back, I add walnuts, and in fact a few more than the 1/2 cup called for. Isa uses a bit less sugar than other recipes, as there is a banana and apple sauce in it and she uses a bit less oil. Every time I have made this…

If Bluto had only known that the decimal point was in the wrong place and that the amount of iron in spinach is only comparable to the amount in meat; and, in raw spinach, most of the iron in spinach is in an insoluble form – ferrous oxide!

Meave and I never really had meat sliders, so we deferred to the expertise of her boyfriend Kas. KAS IS A SLIDER GENIUS. First thing Kas said we had to do was make coleslaw. We let him make if for us as we sat by and taste-tested, because we are so nice to him. Coleslaw is apparently v easy to make.

  • Conquering Fear (How I Started Incredible Smoothies)

    Tracy Russell
    6 Aug 2015 | 9:03 am
    My husband has always been very inspirational to me. One of his favorite quotes is by Neale Donald Walsch: “Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.” In the eleven years we have been together, he has gently nudged me well outside of my comfort zone on many occasions. One thing I have learned is that the bigger a leap in life you take, the bigger the reward. One of best examples of this is when my husband and I started Incredible Smoothies. We took a big leap of faith. And I mean a BIG, EPIC leap of faith. Leaping WAY Outside Of My Comfort Zone I was laid off from my job at a…

This delicious recipe is a great way to add some healthy fats to your smoothie. Cashews contain omega-3 fatty acids, which promote heart health. They are also an excellent source of minerals. You don’t need a lot to get the amazing health benefits of cashews. I added 1/4 a cup of whole, raw cashews to this smoothie. I complemented the flavor of this smoothie with fresh ginger, which also helps aid…

    Making your own homemade nut milks in your blender is actually quite easy. I was reluctant to do it for the longest time. Then I finally made my own almond milk and was shocked at just how easy it is! DIY Nut Milk Recipes (And A Bonus Recipe For Rejuvelac) Why Make Your Own Nut Milks Store bought plant milks are not as fresh as homemade. They can also contain additives (preservatives, stabilizers), chemical residues from the packaging, and many are sweetened with added sugars that are simply not good for you. When you make your own nut milks, however, you know exactly what is in your almond…
  • Is The Sugar In Fruit Bad For You?

    Tracy Russell
    18 Feb 2015 | 8:52 am
    Sometimes after posting a delicious green smoothie on the Incredible Smoothies Facebook page, I will get a comment or two from people who are concerned about the sugar content of the fruit that I used. Their concerns are twofold: 1) They have heard that fructose causes weight gain, and fruits contain fructose, therefore fruits must cause weight gain, and 2) Fruits are “high in sugar”, and sugar is bad for your metabolism and will derail weight loss – or increase the risk for diabetes. And then I get people who refer to fruit as “sugary junk food”, or they just…

    Share This Story!On the Eve of My Fortieth BirthdayI have been doing a lot of self-reflection lately. I turn 40 tomorrow- which is in about 15 minutes. A new decade. And even though it’s stupid, this birthday feels different- like I’m entering a new phase of my life. Everyone keeps telling me that age is just a number because it’s true. But the number can have so much baggage to it, can’t it? If you had asked me a couple months ago if turning 40 was bothering me I would have said no, but that was a lie. I’m not really bothered about turning 40- I’m more…

I have, in the past, jokingly compared myself to Snow White, friend to animals and eater of poisoned apples. The animals must have been gossiping about me.

    Nazareth, Israel; the Jordan River, and the Sea Of Galilee area had always held a special spot in my heart because of their biblical significance. It was such a surreal experience that I actually had the opportunity to visit the region during my recent holidays in the country. During the last full day of my visit to Israel, I did indeed journey to the area. I was excited for the final day tour of my vacation to commence! As with all of the days of my super busy week, my breakfast meal was one that I had purchased during the prior evening. From the vegan-friendly casual restaurant “Caffe…

The morning began with a chocolate croissant pastry for my breakfast that I had purchased during the prior evening at the vegan Anastasia’s Restaurant (Anastasia’s Restaurant) in Tel Aviv. The flaky pastry with it’s chocolate-y filling tasted fabulous! The tour bus arrived promptly at 7am for my day’s tour of Masada and the Dead Sea. We drove past mile after mile of the…

The restaurant offers a few vegan food items on its menu at a reasonable price. They offer healthy cuisine. As always, my tour guide from Ben Harim Tours arrived promptly at 7am for a group tour of Bethlehem and Jericho. Our first stop of the day was at the Judaean Desert “sea level” point, along the highway from Tel Aviv to Jericho. We passed by the Inn of the Good Samaritan by the highway.

    I began my third day in Israel with a scrumptious breakfast that I had purchased the prior night from Village Green (Village Green Restaurant). Chef Onri was kind enough to prepare the sweet and savory treats in advance, due to the fact that my day tour would start before the restaurant opened for breakfast. My delicious breakfast consisted of a carrot spelt muffin and a huge spelt pastry with spinach and homemade cheeses(cashew, almond, soy). I really enjoyed both of these! The spinach bread was accompanied by two sauces: one sweet and one spicy olive tapenade. Absolutely superb! The vegan…

    I awoke bright and early in my Old Jaffa hostel during my first full day in Israel! Since my tour guide would arrive by 7am, there was no time for me to get breakfast at a local restaurant. The seasoned traveler in me understood that it was imperative for me to pick up a breakfast meal option during the previous evening. Thus the prior evening, I had purchased a halwa pastry at vegan-friendly bakery “Piece of Cake” (Piece Of Cake Bakery). The sales staff are familiar with which items are vegan. Some vegan items are on the shelves, while others are kept in the glass display case.

So, before summer comes to a close, pick out a recipe and take your favorite vegan out(side) on a date. I typically…

The pill is called Addyi, prounounced ad-ee, and it’s a huge move for the medical industry, a decision trailing after a long campaign promoting equality amongst access to libido-boosting drugs for men and women. Similarly focused drugs, such as Cialis and Levitra, have been on the market for men for years, meaning Addyi will bring equality to the playtime playing field.

  • Congee with Dates and Spices: Forks Over Knives Cookbook Project

    Emily
    24 Aug 2015 | 5:09 pm
    This dish has quite a unique name but it is filled with pleasant familiar flavors that flawlessly combine together to create a delicious and healthy plant-based breakfast or even desert. Congee is typically an Asian rice porridge (which is similar to rice pudding if you have had that before). It was sweet without being overwhelming and the apricots added just the right amount of tartness to complement the sweetness of the dates. The best part of the Congee with Dates and Spices was the strong aroma it made while cooking. It smelled just like pumpkin spice because of the nutmeg and cinnamon.

      I stumbled upon this savory and quick recipe when I was going through my cookbook collection. I have always loved to cook and spent many years working in my parents’ bookstore so, needless to say, I had accumulated more cookbooks than I had even opened. I have completely overhauled my views of food recently and am now trying to eat only minimally processed, whole, plant-based foods. Because of this, I initially thought that most of my cookbooks were irrelevant to this newfound healthy way of eating, but I was surprised to find more healthy recipes flipping through these cookbooks…

We had a very ambitious beginning after watching the Forks Over Knives documentary in August of 2014. I was a stay at home mom at the time and I cleared our fridge, stocked up on veggies from the grocery store (some that I had never cooked before), and made a new recipe each night. I was even compelled to create this website to help others change their diets to be healthy and to help out other parents that were facing my same parenting struggles. But the truth is that the…

      The exotic flavors are very complex in this healthy pasta dish but the directions are not. This is a very simple weeknight dinner that comes together quickly. Once you add the sauce to the browned onions and mushrooms it smells like curry at first but when you take a bite the intricate tastes of lemongrass perfectly pairs with the basil. The chickpeas add protein and a creamy heartiness to the meal. The spinach adds appealing color and many vital nutrients to the dish as well. I thought the Thai flavors would be too spicy for my toddlers but they surprisingly loved it. The Thai…

    Make sure you use the freshest strawberries and peaches in this one and freeze them yourself. I find that the frozen peaches are often lacking in flavor. The strawberry peach smoothie is a refreshing summer treat. It is perfectly sweetened with the right amount of dates. Just make sure you are using fresh dates or you soak them for a couple hours first so you don’t end up with large date chunks in your drink. The only thing I would change would be that I would have more fruit and less almond milk. The milk kind of overpowered the fruit flavors. I think that changing the ratio of fruit to…

I mean, after a cookie like that, would you dream of anything else but a soft, melt-in-your-mouth cookie? I desperately needed something to change my mind about gluten-free cookies, and this is it!

    Spirulina does have a bad rap for tasting fishy or embodying the essence of pond scum in your mouth.  Sounds appetizing right?  Don’t be put off by a recipe with spirulina. When combined with the creamy sweetness of frozen banana ice cream and topped with fresh jelly black mission figs, your  tastebuds are dazzled by so much sweetness that the  spirulina is a subtle afterthought. During those low-energy weeks, when I am off my game, I slip into eating (gasp) white flour and sugar. Okay, okay, you may be thinking how this guru gets so off track, honestly, we all will have weeks…
  • Sweet Potato Spring Rolls with Peanut Sauce

    31 Jul 2015 | 12:34 am
    If your goals are similar to mine (to eat more vegetables), it’s likely you’ll need to venture out into ethnic foods where vegetables run the show. For many Americans, this may be a foreign concept (haha). Most American food is “meat and potatoes,” salad, and casserole dishes. When you get into ethnic cooking, you will find vegetables are more interesting than their counterparts. These Sweet Potato Spring Rolls with Peanut Sauce have especially high nutrient levels without a lot of calories. In fact, most of the calories are in the peanut sauce, which you can…

  • My Vegan InstaFood This Summer

    This summer was full of new recipes, new ingredients and products. I was experimenting with various vegan products and I managed to maintain my healthy and nutritious diet, enjoying it at the same time. All of this was posted on my Instagram account that you can find below. Among the main discoveries of this summer were the veggie burgers from Gardein. I usually buy them from Costco. Each veggie burger has 15gr of protein, it is very tasty and filling. Non-dairy cheese from Daiya also became one of my favorites. Every Saturday I make pizza and I’m so happy that I can have some vegan…

    I haven’t written a post in a long time, but meanwhile I had a great amount of products to test. Previously I was shopping mostly on Iherb, but I have recently discovered a new website Vitacost, where I order most of my products now. The advantage is that in most of the cases it offers better prices, about 20-30%  of discount. Another advantage is the free shipping for order over 30$ for US and only 10$ shipping for Canadians. It doesn’t matter how many products you actually order, the delivery price will stay the same. But that’s not it, there are also many ways to save up…
  • My Favorites in May. First Wrinkles.

    23 May 2015 | 1:28 pm
    I thought I should do a post like this, since I’m trying new stuff every month anyway. This was a delivery from IHerb and I’ll post the links to all of these products. Last winter was very tough on me. Montreal’s low temperatures, lots of snow and freezing wind exhausted and damaged my skin a lot. Winter had just finished about a month ago only and I’m making some attempts to recover my skin. I tried to apply my usual Almond Oil, but it just doesn’t work anymore like it used to. The small wrinkles under my eyes had became permanent and more pronounced this time.
  • My Elf Cosmetics Collection. Personal Review.

    This time I would like to share with you my experience with makeup products from Elf Cosmetics. This brand offers a wide range of products of a pretty good quality for the lowest prices on the market. It is hard to bit that. A mascara or a foundation can be purchased at around 6$. Eye pencils, shadows and other things are even cheaper. The name of the brand is defined as Eyes Lips Face and is a cruelty-free brand that is very much loved in the vegetarian/vegan community. Before this moment, I didn’t realize I had an entire “collection” already. It turns out I bought several…

    I know it is very hard to recommend some products you like to use to other people, even though you think they might be the best you’ve tried. We are all so different and our skin and bodies react in a totally different, unpredicted way. It is like Jenna Marbles was saying in one of her videos recently that she wanted to have curly hair when she was little. So she asked her classmate, who had curly hair, what shampoo she was using. And as a kid, Jenna was totally sure she would get the same hair. Unfortunately it doesn’t work like that and us, women, we get influenced very easily…

  • Chipotle Cayenne Popcorn Recipe

    7 Jul 2015 | 6:54 am
    Ever since I was little, popcorn has been one of my mom’s favorite snacks. Lunch, dinner, snack time? Doesn’t matter, she’s always down for popcorn. Unfortunately, her go-to popcorn snacks come from the microwave bags and are just plain not good for you. Luckily, she’s mostly moved on to a popcorn popper, but even then, the oil/seasoning/popcorn packets you get with them are pretty underwhelming. This is where Parma comes in; they have three awesome flavors: Original, Garlicky Green and Chipotle Cayenne. These vegan parmesan substitutes are made up of nuts, seeds and…

These cookies have a special ingredient: Mini Peanot Cups. These tasty morsels come from the awesome people over at Premium Chocolatiers. They are nut free and allergy friendly, perfect for eating on their own or incorporating into awesome recipes much like this one. Even though the product itself is peanut-free, dairy-free, tree nut-free, and gluten-free, I’ve added three of those back into this recipe because I love them. ;)…

  • Can Blackfish change your mind about Seaworld?

    28 Aug 2015 | 1:35 pm
    I just watched Blackfish on Netflix that focuses on Tilikum, an orca held by SeaWorld and the controversy over captive killer whales. I'm sure it will get a few more streams after Harry Styles urged fans during a concert last week to boycott Seaworld, perhaps after watching the film. I don't think anyone can watch the documentary and ever consider visiting the theme park again. The trainers obviously love and care for the orcas, that is undeniable but the fact remains that they are kept in an unnatural environment. It is crazy to think that they have…

  • Where are all the fruit & vegetable vending machines?

    23 Aug 2015 | 1:03 pm
    I saw a fruit and vegetable vending machine on the news a few years ago but I am really surprised they haven't taken off! It started off with a local farmer in Scotland spotting an opportunity for fresh, convenient and quick healthy snacks on the go. If you are hungry enough and fruit is the only option...you will eat it. Give people healthy options rather than chocolate bars!
