    Cost of Becoming Vegan by Suzanna McGee When people think of organic vegetables and fruits, they think, “It’s too expensive.” On the contrary, you will find that transitioning to plant-based nutrition will cost less, and depending on your sources, can be significantly less. If you buy your plants when they are in season, the prices will be very low. Farmers’ markets have affordable prices of local, organic produce. I understand that different places in the world have better or worse possibilities of getting plentiful variety of organic produce, but when you put in a little effort, it…

  • Almond Milk Demand in UK Grows at Astonishing Pace

    18 Nov 2014 | 5:51 pm
    In great news for cows, the demand for almond milk in the UK is exploding, with an annual growth rate of 70 to 80 percent. There’s no telling what’s behind this surge, but almond milk clearly carries a number of powerful advantages: no animal cruelty worries, a far smaller environmental footprint, no association with methane production, and the absence of pus, BGH, and fecal coliforms. But maybe more than anything else, people are realizing that almond milk simply tastes a whole lot better than cow’s milk. It’s a drink that adults enjoy and that children don’t…
  • On Regarding Farm Animals as Your Clients

    erikmarcus
    15 Nov 2014 | 10:56 am
    The most useful metaphor I’ve heard used to describe the work of an effective animal advocate is that we serve as criminal defense attorneys for animals. But unlike an actual public defender, every last one of our clients is 100 percent innocent. The reason that this is such a helpful metaphor is that public defenders and vegan advocates each have essentially two jobs. Their first job is to, if at all possible, win the case and to secure their clients’ freedom. But no matter how innocent a client may be, not every case will be won. So in these instances the job becomes…

Unilever’s Hellmann’s and Best Foods brands have dominated America’s mayonnaise market for generations. But this week Unilever filed a lawsuit against tiny startup Hampton Creek, whose vegan Just Mayo product is getting stocked by many of America’s top grocery chains, including Walmart and Costco.

    To be vegan is to know that if you scratch the meat industry’s surface, unending cruelties and miseries will be revealed. A patron at a bar on the outskirts of London discovered this for himself while enjoying a pint of beer and a bag of pork rinds. Upon removing one of the rinds from its plastic bag, he discovered that, through the deep-fried surface, a tattooed number was plainly visible. Around the world, factory farms routinely cut notches out of pigs ears, and tattoo their skin, for identification purposes. You’ve of course got to wonder whether, if they can’t even be…

    8 Nov 2014 | 7:09 am
    All muffins, more or less, are made up of the basic proportion of ingredients.  This means that the kinds of muffins you can make are limited only by your imagination.  I make mini muffins every week for the kids to take on their lunches--the ones pictured here are a mix of wheat flour, quinoa flakes, and oat bran with 3/4 cup of raisins and 3/4 cup of hemp seeds for a real protein boost in the middle of the day. You can also add things such as lemon or orange zest, and a variety of spices to craft your own unique muffin creations. INGREDIENTSSo, the basic ratio of dry:wet is 2:1- 2…
  • Chocolate Danish Braid

    2 Nov 2014 | 11:05 am
    This recipe makes use of the quick laminated dough technique I use for puff pastry and croissants.  You can, of course, make a traditional danish dough if you want to (replace the cream cheese in the the recipe with mashed potatoes).  I think the results are pretty good with the quick dough, though, and spending less time laminating works for me. You can fill this with whatever you want, but the chocolate is always a crowd pleaser.  You will also have to forgive my idiosyncratic measurements in the recipe. Quick Danish Dough- 300 g all purpose flour- 3/4 tsp salt- 3 tbsp…
  • Buchty

    21 Oct 2014 | 6:00 pm
    If you are familiar at all with these traditional Czech sweet buns you will note right off the bat that mine do not have any kind of filling. But, since "buchty" translates as "buns" I think the name is still appropriate.  I simply find it too finicky to try to seal jam or poppyseed filing inside the dough. I also think you get a better rise, bake, and crumb without a filling.  So do what you want with this recipe. I like to cut the buns in half, toast them, and slather them with strawberry jam for breakfast.INGREDIENTS- 17 oz white bread flour- 1 tsp salt- 1/4 cup sugar- 3.5 oz…

     Last week my grandmother passed away after 94 years on this earth. Born in Pennsylvania to Slovak immigrant parents who worked in the steel mills and rail yards around Pittsburgh, she did not have an easy life. My grandfather passed away almost 30 years ago and yet my grandma carried on, making ends meet from his meagre pension and the little that Social Security provided. And yet, her generosity knew no bounds. We were always welcomed into her home with food, and lots of it. She taught me about hospitality and I have tried in this blog and at my own home to keep that alive. Food…
  • Raspberry Flakie

    22 Sep 2014 | 5:44 pm
     Oh, how I coveted other kids' Flakies when I was a kid. My mom would never buy such swill, of course, which only increased the allure of pre-packaged pastries.  There may or may not be beef tallow in Flakies, so if you are craving a treat from your Canadian childhood this recipe is for you.  The tang of the raspberry gets mellowed by the creamy filling, both of which are complemented by layers of buttery pastry.  I made my own butter this time--I use just a pinch of salt and it is absolutely  perfect for baking.  INGREDIENTS- 1 recipe easy puff pastry- 1…

    Eccentric Vegan
    26 Oct 2014 | 11:04 am
    Before we adopted our son, while I was researching raising vegan children I quickly realized that birthday parties were going to be a huge concern for many nonvegans. The notion of a vegan child having to abstain from nonvegan birthday cake is surprisingly appalling to many nonvegans. I brushed the issue aside and simply assumed I would always be prepared and bring a vegan item . I thought my child would easily refuse birthday cake . Since vegan cake is equally delicious, I (wrongly) assumed this would be no problem. Later, I realized that: a) kids these days are invited to an enormous…

    The other day, while picking out some frozen berries at the grocery store, I was pleasantly surprised to see a bag of strawberries, blueberries, and cherries that already contained kale! It’s from Wyman’s of Maine from whom (hey, corporations are people, right? ) I regularly purchase 3 lb bags of blueberries, either solo or mixed with raspberries and blackberries. Out of curiosity, I had to check out this new arrival, fully expecting it would contain a fleck of green here and there to which I would have to add some spirulina to make a green smoothie.

Indeed, on my errands in town today, I spotted a gathering of sign holders attempting to inform the people in passing cars that we’re all “lab rats.” Unfortunately, they chose a fairly busy circle, so I didn’t have much of a chance to read the signs nor interact.

    The recipe that follows is one variation of a peanut butter carob protein ball that I make frequently to snack on during lunch meetings at work or while playing at chess tournaments. They are a superb and tasty source of energy, rather filling for their size, relatively healthy compared to store-bought protein bars, and easy to make. Recipe makes about 21 Tablespoon-sized balls. As usual, most ingredient measurements are exact, i.e., by weight. I’ve tried to approximate the volume measurements in parentheses. 120 g oats, ground to a flour (1.5 cups) 10 g spirulina (1 Tb) 10 g rice…

What does "normal" mean?  Upon further questioning, "normal" is the Standard American Diet.  In other words, a diet high in processed meat, red meat, sugary desserts, high-fat dairy, processed foods, refined grains, and sugary drinks.  It's a diet that has few fruits and vegetables, if any.A "normal" diet is one that increases the risk of heart attack, stroke, diabetes, obesity, arthritis, and many forms of cancer.from…

    As the holidays grow closer by the minute, everyday meals can sometimes take a backseat to party planning. Thankfully, Nava Atlas is here to save the day, or at least the dinner, with a guest post sharing some handy tips on meal planning. This is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the breadth and depth of the kitchen wisdom packed into Plant Power.

    Have you ever seen a better vegetable for stuffing than the humble delicata squash? Each perfect yellow and green-striped edible tube becomes an ideal vessel for every sort of filling imaginable, no matter how you cut or cook it. I’m no stranger to the concept, but all sorts of inspiration has steered my seasonings in an entirely different direction since those first filled squash emerged from the oven. Allow me to introduce to you a prime candidate for your new Thanksgiving main dish, replete with a very posh-sounding beluga lentil filling. Sparkling like legume caviar within their…

    As I’ve found to be true for other bloggers, a quiet front on the wide open internet usually means frenetic activity behind the scenes. Although poor little BitterSweet may not be the beneficiary of all the daily food prep and photography, the oven hasn’t even had a chance to cool down for a moment in the past week. Considering the skyrocketing popularity of red velvet cake, I was eagerly awaiting an opportunity to re-examine this classic confection and infuse it with a fresh palate of new flavors. That occasion lined up perfectly with the changing seasons, dropping the…

    Halloween is upon us once again, bringing with it an endless buffet of “creepy” eats and other grotesque delights. Spaghetti worms and grape eyeballs are perhaps some of the most infamous edible gags, but more modern cooks have become increasingly creative with their monstrous recipes. Bloody fingers are a personal favorite, closely followed by the ever-tempting molded gelatinous brains. It’s easy to whip up a fairly horrific dinner party with a few crafty tricks, but I’m here today to tell you that these examples are all child’s play. If you want to really…

  • Kodubale | Kodbale | Crunchy Rings

    17 Nov 2014 | 6:35 pm
     Kodubale is another one of our favourite namkeens or crispy snacks. These highly addictive snacks are something I make occasionally at my home. They never survive beyond a day as they are so tasty that we are always looking for excuses to munch on them! Last month they were the favoured namkeen for Diwali. Though I made so many different Diwali snacks and sweets, these were the first to disappear, with demands being made for a second round!! Continue reading »
  • Namkeen Kulkul | Karam Ghavalu | Spicy Crisp Shells

    11 Nov 2014 | 10:01 am
    Namkeen Kulkul or Karam Ghavalu is a delicious snack that comes from Western India. My first introduction to Kulkul was in its sweet form. The spicy one I came to know of many years later. I love both forms of Kulkul and this Diwali I made the spicy one for family and friends. I love to add sesame seeds in Namkeens and I chose to add a good handful in this version of Kulkul. The result was really good - the Kulkul was crunchy with the seeds adding some extra flavor and texture to this snack.Continue reading »

    Barfi is the one classic Indian Sweet that graces festivals, birthdays, and all joyous occasions. Its also a wonderful tea time treat and a dessert that can be enjoyed on any day. I had planned to originally prepare this Barfi for the Navratris, but ended up making Badam aur Nariyal ki Barfi | Almond and Coconut Fudge!! This morning, as I was sifting through various ingredients in my pantry, I found two packs of dry coconut - one dessicated and the other shredded. I tend to use the shredded coconut to make chutneys and the dessicated is saved for cakes and cookies.Continue reading »

    Bryanna Clark Grogan
    17 Nov 2014 | 9:47 pm
     Back in November 2011, I was a bit obsessed with waffles. While revising my Vegan Seltzer Waffles (made with club soda, which makes them nice and light), I decided to also develop a gluten-free and soy-free version, so we were eating waffles for breakfast and dinner quite a lot. Finally satisfied with both my gluten-free version and my wheat version (probably to my husband’s great relief!), I began working on a vegan version of “chicken waffles,” a popular, but very high-fat, restaurant dish. It has always intrigued me, but I was never satisfied with my attempts at…

    These dishes made up a fine fall dinner we enjoyed the other night. They are both easy to make, and very tasty and satisfying, as well as nutritious.  Both definitely to be made again!I recently obtained some organic whole oat groats from a friend who rolls his own oats in a little manual mill every morning for breakfast.  He buys them in a bulk and charged me much less than what I would have paid even in our local bulk store (where they are selling for $6 a pound, can you believe!).

    Scott and I went on our first cruise together back in 2007. I was vegan (though not necessarily plant-based, and not yet oil-free) and Scott was vegetarian at the time.I emailed the cruise company (Costa) ahead of time about our dietary requirements, and they assured me they would accommodate us. To their credit, Costa offered three set dinner menus each night, one always being fully vegetarian. Unfortunately, the vegetarian option was always cheesy, and when the kitchen is cooking for thousands of people at once, it can be difficult to get a customized order. “Oh it's already made miss,…

    An Animal Friendly Life

  • Does Your Cat Eat Grass?

    ananimal
    20 Nov 2014 | 12:24 pm
    For some reason, my cat loves to eat grass!  It started out innocent enough until it started making him sick! Whether you have an indoor or outdoor cat, one thing is for certain: your feline friend has probably nibbled on grass on more than one occasion. Not only is there no evidence to suggest that grass will harm your cat, but many experts theorize munching on those long green blades can be beneficial for your cat. Carnivorous RexCats regurgitate when they eat grass because they lack the necessary enzymes to break down vegetable matter. See full story on petmd.com Image courtesy of…

    This is a neat way to use kind of a barn door style gate to keep your pets either in or out.  Of course, your pets may find a way over it but I love the idea just the same! But, as we’ve attempted to add inexpensive character to our very boring builder basic home, we’ve found that palette wood can actually look like much more expensive re-claimed wood when done correctly!

    What a cool cat tree idea!  Love this!  I just might have to go in the forest behind my house and find a similar piece of wood to try the same thing. We put out heads together and thought, what if the cat tree was made from a real tree?And that was it. Every hike from there on out we were eyeing trees and debating on what would look the most artistic. Junipers, on the other hand, grow like weeds in the high desert.

    Lately, I have been researching different supplements that I can offer my dog and cat.  Sounds funny, but there are actually some good supplements out there for your pet’s heath.  Take a look at things like pet Pine Bark and Essiac for pets. After reading the BARF Diet and researching the ideal diet for dogs, its funny just how many parallels there are between nutrition for dogs and nutrition for humans. This is particularly true when it comes to healthy oils. Consider these parallels: The same refined vegetable oils that cause problems for humans also cause problems for dogs. Just…

    For decades, I have been writing that the anti-fur campaign (among others) is sexist. For example, various groups have been using this sort of imagery for years now: (click to enlarge) But fur is no different from wool, leather, or silk. In my book, Rain Without Thunder: The Ideology of the Animal Movement, published by Temple University in Press in 1996, I stated: [T]he fur campaign has from the outset been tainted by sexism.

  • More on Michael Vick, Andre Robinson, and “Animal Abusers”

    Gary L. Francione
    8 Nov 2014 | 2:11 am
    I often hear people say that the difference between “animal abusers” like Michael Vick and Andre Robinson, and non-vegans, is that Vick and Robinson inflicted suffering on animals because they enjoyed the process of inflicting harm on animals whereas non-vegans just enjoy the taste of animal products but don’t want to harm animals. This difference, it is claimed, makes it wrong for me to say that non-vegans are morally indistinguishable from people like Vick and Robinson. That is unsound thinking. First of all, there are lots of non-vegans who do enjoy the process of killing…

    Wayne Pacelle
    21 Nov 2014 | 10:21 am
    It was 60 years ago, on November 22, that four individuals founded The HSUS, with grand ambitions but only a few nickels in their pockets. At the time, there were just 500 or so local humane organizations scattered across 3,100 counties. Like islands, with scant connection and sense of unity, they lacked resources and, to a degree, a connection to a cause larger than their own operations. They were often disassociated from the larger dynamics driving animal homelessness and cruelty. It was within this context that our founders stepped up to provide effective national leadership…

    New Jersey Governor Chris Christie faces a threat to his brand of “straight talk” and “no nonsense” with the full-blown national controversy over his veto last year of a bill to ban gestation crates, and his apparent recent pledge to an Iowa pork producer to veto a revised version of that bill -- despite an extraordinary level of popular support for the measure in the state he was elected to serve. Last night, New Jersey native Jon Stewart focused on Christie and his inclination to again veto the legislation to ban the use of the two-foot-by-seven-foot immobilizing metal crates.

    I guess it’s no big surprise that Japan has advanced a new proposal to kill whales for commercial purposes in Antarctic waters, again under the guise of “science” and “research.”  In late March 2014, the highest court in the world -- the International Court of Justice (ICJ) -- ruled that Japan’s previous program in these waters, JARPAII, was not based on science and thus was in violation of the moratorium on commercial whaling. Following the ruling, Japan indicated that it would abide by the decision and the rule of law. Indeed, there will be no whales killed for the first…

    Shooting a rhino for sport seems about as challenging as shooting a parked bus. The prehistoric-looking beasts are big and not fleet of foot. They confront a threat by charging it, not running away. That doesn’t serve them well as a hunting guide and a trophy hunter get within range with a high-powered telescopic rifle to bring down the endangered animals for their heads and horns. Last year more than 1,004 rhinos were killed in South Africa alone and this year’s tally as of October 24th was 899 – that’s three rhinos poached each day.

    I can understand Chris Christie’s dilemma – either signing an enormously popular bill to ban gestation crates in New Jersey or caving in to the veto demands of Iowa Governor Terry Branstad, whose support is coveted by every aspiring Republican presidential candidate who trudges through Iowa. There’s no mystery that Christie is closely examining the idea of running for president, and that the state’s first-in-the-nation caucuses often winnow the field and set up the front-runners.  A recent poll found 93 percent of New Jersey residents want to ban gestation…

    A common misconception about the vegan diet is that it severely lacks protein and, as we all know, protein is the building blocks of muscle and therefore essential to building them. However, any vegan will know that nuts and soy are equally good sources of protein and good fats. Many diets are aimed at those willing to spend vast amounts of money to make the problem – their fat – disappear. However, for most, these prices are extortionate and unnecessary.

  • Animal News You Can Use: Protect the pigs!

    seriousmeaveness
    21 Nov 2014 | 8:46 am
    How far farm animals have come! If you didn’t see it, stop reading this email now and go watch Jon Stewart’s eight-minute segment on The Daily Show this week inserting cruelty to pigs squarely into the presidential race. The must-watch segment, focusing on the HSUS-led campaign to ban gestation crates in New Jersey, is truly breath-taking. Comedy Central isn’t the only outlet taking Gov. Christie to task for his thus-far lack of support for banning gestation crates. Former George W. Bush speechwriter Matthew Scully published a potent National Review commentary yesterday on the same…

    Millions of Americans are more familiar with the cruelty of the pork industry this week because of the national media’s coverage of whether NJ Gov.

  • Top 10 Healthy Holiday Smoothie Recipes

    Tracy Russell
    10 Nov 2014 | 8:25 am
    The holidays are notorious for sugary treats. From the office Christmas party to the family cookie exchange, everyone loves to bake and share their favorite creations. And there’s nothing wrong with allowing yourself a little indulgence once in a while. My mom makes the best vanilla fudge, and even I enjoy it once a year. However, things can get out of hand during the holidays. Diets get tossed aside, pants get tight, and that “blarg” feeling hits an all-time high (along with the guilt). Instead of beating yourself up over all of the holiday treats you’re indulging in…

  • Pineapple-Avocado Green Smoothie Recipe with Pear

    I love this green smoothie! Not only are pineapple and avocados delicious, but they are both very good for you. Pineapples have anti-inflammatory properties and are great for people who suffer from rheumatoid arthritis. They are also a great source of fiber. Just one cup of pineapple contains 9% of your daily recommended value of fiber. Avocados are a great source of B vitamins and healthy fats. Just 1/4 of an avocado contains 5% of your daily recommended value of omega-3 and 8% of your daily recommend value of omega-6 essential fatty acids. The pear also helps to add a little more dietary…
  • Healthy Coconut and Macadamia Nut Treats

    Tracy Russell
    22 Sep 2014 | 12:46 pm
    I got the idea for these healthy coconut and macadamia nut treats when I moved from Massachusetts to upstate New York this summer. I needed to eat up the food in my refrigerator before the move, and that’s where this tasty little treat idea came from. I had a bag of Macadamia nuts and cashews that were open and didn’t have a lot left in them. I use just one tablespoon of raw honey as a sweetener in this recipe, which I find to be enough. Make sure you use coconut butter and not coconut oil. They are not the same thing and coconut oil will make them too soft. It can be hard to find…

    In 2009, I marked my official turning point in veganism by adopting a turkey from Farm Sanctuary. I plan to do this for Thanksgiving every year to honor my veganniversary. I went vegan five years ago. I resolved to stop using animals as much as I practically could; I could never have guessed just how many ways I was using them! I also resolved to adopt a turkey every year for my veganniversary. Rhonda, Velma, Victoria, Skip, and Tulip are joined this year by Cecelia, one of twenty-four baby turkeys rescued from a factory farm and left at the Watkins Glen shelter. Personally, I find…
  • The 46millionturkeys Project: A Compassionate & Artful Thanksgiving Tradition

    10 Nov 2014 | 7:00 am
    The National Turkey Federation estimates Americans ate approximately 46 million turkeys on Thanksgiving Day in 2011. While a significant number of people think of themselves as animal lovers, there is a persistent barrier getting those same people to acknowledge turkeys are sentient animals—like their cat, dog, and bird companions—who possess desires and preferences, and experience pleasure and suffering. If asked to distinguish individual turkeys amongst thousands crammed into a shed or barn, most people would “see” little difference between the animals. And yet, each bird is a…

    November is a big month. My mother was born in November. Some of my closest friends (past and present) were born in November. I wrote a novel in November. I adopted a beagle in November. I went vegan in November. The founding of the world’s first Vegan Society happened in November – on November 1, which is now World Vegan Day. Donald Watson coined the word vegan – a word which means many things to many people, but which was intended as follows: Veganism is a way of living which seeks to exclude, as far as is possible and practicable, all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty…

Let’s ignore for a second the never ending debate about “eating vegan” and “being vegan” and focus on the poor man’s plight: Referring to the private chef he had travel with him on tour, he said: “That was opulent as hell. It was just difficult to find people who can make vegan food taste great.” If only we could all be in the fortunate position to be able to afford a private chef.

    Growing up I hated oatmeal. There, I said it. It's a hard thing to admit, oatmeal being such a healthy food that you should eat EVERY day, and all. As I got older, I started to realize that while overly mushy quick oats with brown sugar just were not my cup of tea, I COULD like oatmeal if I made it right. These days I like my oatmeal piled high with crunchy apple slices, raisins, cinnamon, hemp hearts, ground flax and almond milk. But I have to admit, though I love to cook, that's about as adventurous as I get with oats in the breakfast department. Skip all the main meals of the day, and…

My goal for this year is to visit two regions: one in the early to mid-peak and another during peak foliage.

Green Bean Casserole This new take on a classic tradition changes everything.  Instead of using canned mushroom soup, homemade mushroom sauce.  Instead of packaged french-fried onions, make them yourself and save yourself the trans-fats.  Also, use chardonnay instead of water.

There are so many things still left to be done, even though my last two weekends have been spent almost entirely devoted to "the wedding."A couple of weeks ago, some coworkers and I celebrated my impending nuptials by going to Painting With A Twist. We fittingly painted sugar skulls wearing bridal ecoutremant. Take a looksie.This is my finished painting. I smudged it at the top of the…

    Never before have I understood why there are such things as wedding planners.The past couple of months have been absolutely full of wedding planning, shopping, and scheming. And we're still not done with everything. It's less than one month now, people, and we're definitely feeling the pressure.Which is why we packed up our bags Saturday morning and hit the road toward Fredericksburg.Chris decided that all she wanted for her birthday was a tent. She's a big astronomy nerd and she has about reached the maximum of what she can see in the city with her telescope. The light pollution is just so…

    28 Jul 2014 | 3:00 pm
    Well, we passed the three month countdown until our wedding day. It really does not feel like October 12th will be here in about 2.5 months. Chris and I have been so busy with things here that it has been very difficult devoting time to wedding planning. She has been especially distracted by work. Life in Texas has gotten rather complicated for us recently. In fact, the two of us have spent a lot of trying to figure out if we could afford to purchase a foreclosure house in rural northern New Hampshire on our current budget. One of the reasons we moved to Texas instead of New Hampshire…
  • Oh, My! Tomato Pie!

    Lizz Clements
    15 Jul 2014 | 10:00 am
    When I first moved to Austin, Kerbey Lane Cafe was my favorite place to eat. I tried nearly every vegetarian thing on the menu. Then I went vegan, limiting my options a bit. Vegan pancakes and the breakfast platter became my usual picks. I have always been intrigued by their seasonal menus, which unfortunately don't usually have vegan options. The highlight of the summer menu is their Tomato Pie. I have never tried it but have always been intrigued.So I decided to make tomato pie at home.For starters, I used the all-knowing master of knowledge, Google, to see if any copycat recipes had been…

    This is what I’ve been eating for breakfast every morning for the past month. It’s total comfort food and makes me feel amazing, even after a night of little sleep. I don’t know about you, but when I find something that I love, I have to have it every. single. day. until I’m sick of it and then I’m onto the next thing for a while. It’s a good thing I have this blog or I’d probably eat the same 3 meals on rotation! This wouldn’t surprise my mom. As a child, I used to only want to wear one outfit over and over.

Yum Universe is a guidebook to living a gluten-free, plant-based, vibrant whole food life, and includes oodles of healthy recipes, photographs, and tips to get you started. Many of you may know Heather’s inspiring blog by the same name and if you’ve read for any length of time, you know how passionate she is about a plant-based lifestyle. A former veggie-phobe, she now loves to encourage others to make positive changes in their own diets. I’ve…

    This is a side dish you’re going to want on the holiday dinner table. Or maybe, on your regular fall dinner table. Because who can wait for the holidays? It is sweet potato season after all, which means in this house we’re cooking them a couple times a week. Give me all the sweet potatoes, please. They are the edible equivalent to a big warm hug. Now that it’s officially November (plus chilly and dark at 6pm…tear…sob), I figure some of us are thinking about happier things…like the holidays and all the delightful holiday food. I know I am. It’s my favourite time of the year to…

    Halloween week without chocolate is simply a crime. We must fill our quota! Luckily, I have the perfect solution.. After teasing you with this dessert the other week (and seeing you lose your mind over it) I figured I better deliver the goods. I set a lofty goal of making this chocolate pie as friendly to as many different dietary needs as I could. I always love a good challenge in the kitchen; it keeps me on the brink of crazy town. In addition to being vegan, this pie is also gluten-free, grain-free, and nut-free. A Halloween miracle if you ask me! It’s also free of self-control because…

  • Penne with Chickpeas and Spinach: Forks Over Knives Cookbook Project

    Emily
    20 Nov 2014 | 2:35 pm
    I found this warm pasta dish to be lacking in balance. The contrast of colors was visually appealing and the aroma of the sun-dried tomatoes simmered with onions in white wine smelled delicious. I was disappointed however when I took my first bite. The textures of the ingredients were all similarly mushy with a very slight chewiness. Think al dente pasta with the texture of wilted spinach, garbanzo beans, and slightly chewy sun dried tomatoes. It was also somewhat dry. I think it would have tasted better with a cauliflower cream sauce to tie the flavors together and to help with the…
  • Cashew Milk

    Emily
    6 Nov 2014 | 9:00 pm
    I know that there are many people out there that make their own milk from cashews, almonds, or any other types of nuts, but I just do not have the time to invest because a plant based diet already requires some extra time for washing and chopping fruits and vegetables. I have heard that it is really quite simple but I have not yet learned how to make homemade nut milks. Fortunately for me, I noticed that my local Walmart started selling Silk cashew milk in both original and unsweetened flavors. I feel silly for being so excited to try it but I must say this is now my favorite plant-based milk…
  • Easy Thai Vegetable Stew: Forks Over Knives Cookbook Project

    Emily
    30 Oct 2014 | 10:00 pm
    This stew is full of flavors with lime being the most pronounced. Because of the serrano pepper, it has a little bit of a kick to it but not too much. The spiciness does not overpower the subtle flavors of the other ingredients. It is relatively easy to make too just as the title claims. However, it would not be something that I would make for last minute dinner guest as the author mentions. I say this since I did not have many of the ingredients on hand. Because, honestly, unless someone grows their own herbs, who has fresh mint and cilantro in their fridge? Or a serrano pepper and a can of…

Stop what you are doing right now, buy the cookbook from the link at the bottom of this page (if you do not already own it), go shopping for ingredients and make this for dinner tonight. I can try to describe how the freshness of the mint and lemon pair perfectly with the spicy cayenne pepper and the sweet paprika but I just cannot make it sound as good as it tastes so you will have to try it for yourself. I have never tasted anything similar to this soup before either. As the cookbook suggested I used chickpeas (also known as garbanzo…
  • Peanut noodles with Broccoli: Forks Over Knives Cookbook Project

    Emily
    23 Oct 2014 | 10:00 pm
    The peanut noodles with broccoli were a nice change of pace from the usual pasta dishes I have been making from this cookbook. The sauce was quick to make and combined mainly the creamy nutty flavor of peanut butter with the crisp, almost spicy flavor of ginger. I would add more broccoli or more vegetables the next time I make it because it seemed too heavy on the starches to be a healthy meal. I added peas when I ate the leftovers and they worked really well. The balance of flavors was new and exiting the first day I made it, but as I ate leftovers over the next few days I really got tired…

    21 Nov 2014 | 6:36 pm
    pin it   It’s that time of year! The time to roast chestnuts, brussel sprouts, and apples. This time, I made my roasted brussel sprouts with apples and chestnuts without butter and added a little nut myllk for creaminess, but usually I make this dish with butter. After trying both, I prefer butter since it adds a crispy shell to the brussel sprouts. however, without is still pretty tasty. Your choice, but my vote is use the butter. Otherwise, make sure you make this dish on a cookie sheet for maximizing your crispiness efforts. If you aren’t sure if you like brussel…

And unfortunately, migraines mean you have to find solutions for your headaches…OFTEN. What’s wrong with these solutions?

Until then, slow cooker stuffed apples with figs, pecans, cinnamon, lemon, orange zest, and maple sugar are a beautiful and delicious treat, don’t you agree? If you are craving apple pie, you must give this recipe a try! These are drool-worthy! Besides apples, figs are another great fruit in the fall.  There are many great recipes with figs, but I think the Italians do it best: Bruschetta with Caramelized Figs, Fig and…

Various associations of pediatrics, family doctors and other health related professionals and institutions, highly recommend and promote breastfeeding among new moms.
