I adopted a girl!

Okay, so really it’s Batman morphed into a turkey. (Sorry, Batman.) Silly photo, but if it got your attention, it did its job! Please, if you have the means this Thanksgiving, consider sponsoring a rescue turkey through Farm Sanctuary. Just a quick $30 donation can help provide lifelong care for animals in desperate need of […]

My date… at a gas station?

But first, breakfast: I spread peanut butter on one of these: Banana Oatmeal Squares. (Plus a simple veggie scramble, unpictured.) I played around with the ingredients and proportions of the boatmeal, devising a new version of the recipe that yields 10 servings instead of just one. Or you can freeze the leftovers and have one ready as needed. […]

Dating a Vegan

I’ve been quietly dating someone for the past two months. Since this is a recipe blog (and for privacy), I wasn’t sure if I should even mention it on the site. However, his name might come up in the commentary or comment section, so I tried to casually introduce him a few posts back. (That […]

Special Diet Parties

Fact: I like parties.   People often ask how I deal with being the only vegan at a party: What do I eat? Do I make special arrangements ahead of time? And how do I react when someone brings up the topic? I know many of you also eat “differently” than your friends and family—whether it […]

Don’t be afraid to be Yourself

Before I left NY, I made sure to catch up with a few friends. And by friends, I mean those of the fur variety. Lions and tigers and… horses and pigs and cows and bunny rabbits and geese and goats and, well, you get the idea. Yesterday, I saw all these guys and more. Whenever […]

About the Boy

The other day, I walked into a local sporting-good store, intent on scouting out the Nike running gear. But when I chanced upon the clerk in the shoe department, said running-gear-scouting was forgotten. We talked for over an hour—first about running (which, it turns out, we both love), and then about basically every other topic under the […]

Food is NOT the most important thing in the world

What are some things that are more important to you than food?  To me, family is definitely more important. Sarah (a reader) asked: In the eight (I think you said eight) years you’ve been vegan, have you ever KNOWINGLY eaten a meat or dairy product, either by accident or choice? I know you said you […]

Diet is not Religion

Forgive me, for I have sinned. Please don’t ever apologize for eating a cupcake, a Twinkie, a non-vegan food, or any other morsel that happens to categorize you as “straying” from whatever diet you’ve chosen. Guilt is present in so many areas of our lives. We feel guilty when we spend too much on a […]

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 […]

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 […]

Processed foods and Soybeans and Tofu– oh my!

Lately, around the blogworld, many bloggers have been getting into the raw-food movement.  I don’t think anyone would question the fact that raw fruits and veggies are healthy. However (and I really don’t mean to point fingers; I’m just venting, so please don’t take my opinions personally), some posts seem to have taken on a […]

Curious about 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 […]
