Healthy Halloween Recipes

Dear litttle chocolate chips, . Halloween is a scary time. And when I say scary, I’m not talking ghosts and goblins. With an overabundance of sugary sweets, Dracula isn’t the only fearsome foe for those trying to stick to a healthy diet. Below, some healthy Halloween recipes. So you can leave the scaring to the creepy […]

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

  Now that I’ve gone back to school, 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, […]

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, […]

Kisses and Hugs

Lotsa fruit-lovin’ action this past month! . Let’s take a look at those of y’all who joined my sweet lover and me: Jennifer and a gorgeous fudge baby sundae (over whipped banana butter) . Vanilla, who made “Pumpkin Pie” babies . Lauren (and her exquisite Strawberry breakfast sundae) . Eleanor . Sami . Jessica . […]

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 […]

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

l 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 […]

Magic Mushrooms

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 […]

Iron, Anemia, and Vegetarian Diets

A few readers have left comments on the post or sent emails asking about how to get enough iron, B12, etc. on a vegan diet. The truth is, it’s not hard at all! Here was my answer to one of the emails: In terms of getting good bloodwork results, the most important thing you need to be […]
