People ask me all the time: Are you ever tempted to eat non-vegan food?     For the first month after I became a vegetarian, meat cravings definitely hit! In fact, I can remember one specific time where I had my nose right up to a hamburger, thinking “Maybe I should just give in and […]

A recipe, but NOT for Peanut Butter

Fact: I love Butter. Huh? How exactly is that vegan, Miss Katie? No wait! I’m talking about the likes of Hot Chocolate Butter, not the dairy stuff. Then, there’s peanut butter, cashew butter, banana butter, almond butter, and—of course—coconut butter. Don’t forget cacao butter, which is not only an ingredient in many chocolate confections, it’s […]

Redefining Fast Food

Lately, I’m needing to come up with even quicker meals. Katie, your recipes are already quick and easy. How much simpler can they get? What about a meal in 5 minutes? Sorry to Rachael Ray, but 30 minutes to dinner sounds like a long time to me. Sometimes, 5 minutes is all you’ve got! The […]

Soy-Free Vegan Yogurt

No, I don’t eschew all soy. I believe that all most foods in moderation are perfectly fine. But that’s exactly the point: moderation. The problem with soy is that these days it’s in everything, from beverages to vitamins to Fritos! And unlike the Japanese, who have been reaping the health benefits of soy foods for […]

High-Protein Spaghetti??

I love little health-food stores. You can find things you’ve never seen before at the big ole Whole Foods. Case in point: spaghetti made entirely from black beans! Strange pastas just seem to find me; I’ve even seen chocolate pasta before. And you might recall my “mushroom spaghetti” post. Seeing how much I love pasta, […]

Vegan Dinner At Angelica Kitchen

NYC continued… Soon enough, after eating at Whole Foods, walking around Times Square, and exploring the amazing hotel, it was time for din-din. We journeyed to Angelica Kitchen, a vegan establishment in the East Village, for an early dinner (5PM). This left us plenty of time to get to Jersey Boys at 8. As soon […]

Mondo Zucchini Burrito

Tortilla stuffed with No-Name Zucchini. Mondo Zucchini Burritos (Makes 2 burritos) 4 medium zucchini, sliced into coins high-quality olive oil (Be sure to store olive oil in a dark container. It loses health benefits when exposed to light) 3-4 tsp minced garlic salt and pepper to taste (I like about 1/2 tsp salt, but you can use […]

The (Olive) Oil Crisis

Many people ask why many of my recipes have the option of being so low-fat (or fat free). I wrote the answer on my FAQ Page, but for the sake of convenience, I’ll write it out again here. From the FAQ page: “Many of your recipes seem low-calorie.  Why is that?” I know a lot of […]

Fat Talk

A few months ago, the Atkins Diet felt my wrath when I stood up for Carbs. Well, Atkins can breathe a sigh of relief now, ‘cause I’m going after someone else! Who came up with the idea to call the important nutrients that do so much for us “fats” anyhow?  Why associate something so good […]
