Orthorexia Nervosa: The New Eating Disorder

Thanks to many of your blog posts, I learned that last week was National Eating Disorder Awareness Week. You had some great, insightful posts on intuitive eating and on celebrating our bodies for the amazing things they enable us to do. When one thinks of eating disorders, anorexia, bulimia, and compulsive overeating come to mind. But […]

Describe your Perfect Date

Miss Rhode Island: That’s a tough one. I would have to say April 25th. Because it’s not too hot, not too cold, all you need is a light jacket. Vegan Thursdays Where we sit around and eat foods such as: Girl-Scout Cookie Bites Remember I told you the inspiration for Vegan Thursdays came from one […]

Omnivores and Veganism

When I first started writing this, it was just meant to be a simple reply to a comment I received from someone interested in veganism (Hi Cecilia! *Waves*). But by the time I’d finished writing my answer to her question, I discovered I’d written so much that I should just turn my reply into a […]

Chocolate-Covered Meal Of The Day

But first, a recipe update: I added 1/8 tsp of vanilla to the Raw Cashew-Vanilla Bars, which took the flavor to a new level. Plus,  I wanted to show off the cute owl candle. When I was at Bryn Mawr (their mascot is the owl), we kinda went owl-overboard and bought everything owl-y we could find :). Chocolate-Covered Meal […]

When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie, that’s amore

Dining at an Italian restaurant in America, it’s often quite difficult to locate a vegan dish among the meat and cheese-laden offerings.  However, in Italy, menus abound with naturally-vegan foods.  Minestrone, Bruschetta, Penne Arrabbiata, Spaghetti Pomodoro, Insalata, Pizza Marinara… it’s oft been said that one cannot eat a bad meal in Italy! One of my […]

My Cousin Vinegar

Maybe it’s because our family is from New York, but the movie My Cousin Vinny leaves us in hysterics every time we watch it. And I have a cousin who might just be the long lost twin of Marisa Tomei. Are there any movies you and your family can watch over and over again that remind […]

Sticks and Stones and Weed and Bombs

But names will never hurt me. (Channelling my inner MIA?) For the most part, I loved reading your comments on the Processed foods and Soybeans and Tofu post.  Maybe I should rant more often, because my complaints sparked some great responses! I must apologize, though, for the drama caused.  As I stated in that post, I was not attacking any blogger.  […]

Blend and Snap!

Works every time! (from Legally Blonde) If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you’re probably sick and tired of my mentioning the blended grains trick in every post.  Well, then you’re in luck, because this post is not about blended grains.  After all, there are other foods, besides grains, that you can blend. Such […]

Easter Round-Up

I don’t have time to write a fancy-schmancy post today, but I wanted to get something up for Easter. Easter Round-Up: 1. For all the vegans out there, as well as for people who just don’t want to be bothered with hiding real eggs (and hoping the kids find them before the dogs do!), check out […]

Summer Lovin’

When I was in fourth grade, my sister and I became obsessed with the movie Grease. For a while, we watched the tape every single day. That summer, my friends and I even put on a mini-play of Grease. I won the coveted role of Sandy… but we made my poor little sister play Danny! […]

Fall’s Favorite Curry: The Recipe

One of my favorite things to eat 🙂 Fall’s Favorite Curry   1 cup milk of choice Imagine No-Chicken broth 1/4 cup tomato paste 2 tbsp good curry powder (make sure to use one you know that you like; once I bought a different brand, because they were out of my favorite, and it was horrible! […]

Spaghetti Squash Love

Spaghetti Squash! Everyone seems to have a different way to cook spaghetti squash. Personally, I like to let it bake a long time, so the insides get all caramelized and sweet. My method: 1. Poke a few holes into the squash with a knife, then cut in half and place the halves right-side-up on a piece of […]

Testing, Testing 123

By now, I’m sure you’ve all bought Happy Herbivore’s new e-cookbook, right? Well if you haven’t, what are you waiting for? With recipes for foods like mojito cupcakes and citrus-glazed chickpeas, how could you not want to get your hands on this gem of a cookbook? I’m not the best photographer, so my snapshots can’t do […]

Cruising Along

The hassle of the plane rides was completely worth it… (Mom, sister, and me in Monaco. Note the castle in the background!) To cruise all night and wake up in such exotic locations as Greece, Italy, Croatia… it was unreal. Over the twelve days, we stopped in Monte Carlo (Monaco), Marseille (France), Barcelona (Spain), Livorno/Florence […]

Alfredo, Alfredo!

Another post from me so soon? Well, I wanted to continue to keep up with the demand that I post more pictures of my meals. (This does not mean I’m going to be posting everything I eat every day. I’m impressed by the bloggers who do so, but I just don’t have anywhere near enough […]

Red, White, Blue, and Vegan (Part One)

Ok, first I have to tell you all this hilarious story: On the morning of the Fourth of July, I went out to a running trail by a local lake. I was minding my own business when suddenly I noticed a man going the opposite direction, wearing patriotic SPANDEX shorts! He had on a blue tee […]
