“Fudge You!” High-Protein Chocolate Cake

Pin It!

Above and below, covered in Vegan Whipped Cream. Possible problems with making a whole pan of brownies: After only a few days, they get hard and crumbly (especially the end pieces). If you live alone, it’s hard to finish a whole pan by yourself before they go stale. If you’re my mom, you disagree with […]

Baby Food For Grown Ups

Pin It!

Gerber’s got competition… Lately, thanks to the (finally) warmer weather, I’ve been craving Faux-Yo. But yesterday I was being lazy and therefore wanted to use my easy-to-clean Magic Bullet instead of the Vita-Mix.  So I opted for canned fruit, because Mr. Magic Bullet’s tummy doesn’t agree with frozen fruit (i.e. he refuses to blend it).  […]

Vegan Bodybuilding With Robert Cheeke

Pin It!

I’m honored to have my friend Robert Cheeke as a guest today. He’s written an informative post on vegan bodybuilding and has even sent a  list of High Protein Vegan Foods. Robert Cheeke is pretty much the antithesis of what one thinks of when one hears the word “vegan.”  He definitely helps squash the stereotype […]

But where do you get your protein?

Pin It!

I have to laugh when people ask me that question. It’s just so ironic that, 90% of the time, the same people who are asking me where I get my protein have absolutely no idea where they get any of their nutrients.  If they’re asking out of genuine curiosity, I’m happy to list vegan sources […]

Pea Soup And The Prom

Pin It!

Not together, though. Oh goodness no. Lunch Munch: Magic Mushrooms (I didn’t know it was 4/20; I promise!), mache, toast with vegan butter and smashberry jam, and homemade pea soup. Below, more photos, because I have issues with making decisions, and therefore couldn’t decide which to post: After lunch, my friend and I took her […]

Protein Powder 101

Pin It!

People often ask for protein powder recommendations. I’ve tried Spirutein a few times, but I only like the cookies-n-cream flavor. And Jay Robb’s okay ( it’s a hassle having to buy it online). But the truth is that, in my everyday diet, I normally don’t use any protein powder. I get enough protein from “real” […]

When life gives you lemons

Pin It!

What’s your biggest-ever kitchen mishap? I’ve definitely been guilty of microwaving tinfoil before.  And I’ve done the whole “exploding oatmeal” thing more times than I’d like to count. Then there was that b*tchy wheatberry disaster… But sometimes a “mishap” can turn into something positive.Take, for example, my snack from the other day, a Blueberry Breakfast […]

Chocolate Protein Icing

Pin It!

Break out your Canned Pumpkin! And fish out those goggles, because it’s time to dive, head-first, into a pool of chocolate protein icing. Chocolate icing so healthy you can eat the entire bowl in one sitting. Kind of like with the recipe for Whipped Cream in a Bowl. (See, you want to dive in, right?) “Fudge […]

Magic Mushrooms

Pin It!

Story time! One day back in high school, my art teacher (we’ll call her Mrs. Smith) decided to show off a mushroom-shaped piece of pottery constructed by a student. “Look, class,” she said.  “Isn’t this gorgeous?” Her question was met with snickers. Confused, she asked, “You don’t think it’s beautiful?  Just look at the skill; look […]

Expanding the Larabar Love

Pin It!

Thanks to reader, Liz, for the heads-up: Liz says that Larabar is coming out with New Larabar flavors! My only question for Larabar is: Why has it taken you this long to make a carrot cake flavor?! 😉
