Vegan Becomes Obsessed With Juicing

February 24, 2011

If this was a newspaper about my life, that would be the headline of the day. In the past 24 hours I’ve juiced everything green I could get my hands on. I mean, really only the green contents of my refrigerator, but that was a kale, purple kale, rainbow chard,and arugula. My first juice, last…

Vegan Toddler Tip: Eating Their Veggies

February 18, 2011

Although my little one had been eating vegetables with ease the first year of solid foods, something changed when the second year came around. Maybe it was the gradual switch from purees to more steamed vegetable pieces, but he started spitting vegetables out, pushing them aside on his plate , or refusing them altogether. I…

Your Thoughts Thursday: Vegan On Oprah

February 3, 2011

It’s been so long since I’ve done a YTT, and I really miss the conversation! In case you missed the episode or haven’t read one of the million other recaps, Oprah’s vegan episode consisted of a short slaughterhouse tour, a conversation between herself, Kathy Freston, Michael Pollan, and a Cargill representative, Kathy Freston taking one…

Vegan Caramel, Frozen Pizza, Sheese, And Hickory Spread

February 2, 2011

Last month I placed an order full of fun, new-to-me goodies from Vegan Essentials, and although I took photos, the goods are long consumed and I’ve yet to do any reviews.  So I thought rather than make a bunch of little posts, I’d just make one big review-ish post! I was drawn to the Vegan…

Vegan Valentine’s Day Gifts With A Heart

January 31, 2011

Corny title, I know, but it works… Oh hey, welcome back, me. Can you believe it’s already the last day of January?! I took some much needed time to get our family moved and settled in, but I’m so excited to be back in front of the computer screen. Well, it doesn’t sound exciting when…

Your Thoughts Thursday: Vegans And Soy

December 16, 2010

Unlike anything else in the healthy eating world (and by that I mean just like everything else in the healthy eating world), there is mixed information on soy.  According to the soymilk box, soy is going to save our heart, our family’s lives, the world.  And much of the general public associates soy with “healthy”…

Match Vegan Roast And Gardein Turk’y

December 14, 2010

Not long ago, if you wanted to buy a vegan roast, your options were pretty much Tofurky or Tofurky.  Now don’t get me wrong, I love Tofurky roast, but since variety is the spice of life and we’d hate for people to use up all their best Tofurky jokes prematurely (Okay, maybe demand has something…

Vegan Holiday Stocking Stuffer Ideas

December 6, 2010

I’m not sure why, but the stockings were always my favorite part of Christmas.  Maybe it’s because I usually knew what I was getting, but the stocking was a complete surprise, or perhaps I just have an affinity for mini goodies, but either way, I looked forward to dumping out that sock of treasures!  If…

Oh, The Trees I Ate: November 2010

December 1, 2010

With November, ends my first Vegan MoFo.  It went so fast!  It’s been a great experience and I’ve met new people, found new blogs to read.  There were so many delicious vegan recipes shared, it would take the entire year to even make the best of them, but here are my favorite eats from the…

Vegan Christmas Menu

November 30, 2010

Every year, my grandma pays for the ingredients to whip up a family Christmas feast, and I do the actual whipping up.  Preparing a huge meal without the grocery bill?  I’ll take it!  Since she likes to know her grocery list and budget early, I usually have to pick out the vegan Christmas menu before…
