In keeping with the theme of celebrating World Vegan Month with a daily post instead of my typical weekly Tuesday posts and in going to the roots of Veganification, which is celebrating the journey of becoming and being vegan, I thought that I’d take you through the journey of veganifying

Hump Day is here! Today is Wacky Weiner Wednesday. That’s right. It’s not just your plain old vegan hot dog on a bun with some mustard and sauerkraut. Not that there’s anything wrong with that dog, because every now and again I get me a real hankering for one of them that I succumb to. But, let’s expand our horizons a little today.

Hola, Amigos!

So, today everyone is familiar with tacos. We devour them at those readily-recognizable fast food chains and savor them at the family-run local Mexican restaurant.

Typically, a taco is a corn (maize) tortilla that is used as the vessel that is folded around a filling.  Ahhh, but is has become so much more!

Meatless Monday – November 7, 2016

While Sir Paul McCartney is probably the face that we tend to associate with the modern-day version of Meatless Mondays, its beginnings are actually based in early 1900’s during World War 1 (WW1).

Today is the day when we step away from the busy-ness of the rest of the week and take time in the kitchen to create a mouthwatering supper.

Yippee! The weekend is here. I know…you’ve been running errands all day and the last thing you feel like doing it heading into the kitchen. You could reach into the pantry for one of those vegan canned soups…but honestly, (at least in my humble opinion) I’ve never eaten one of those things and subsequently raved that I just devoured the most wonderful, delectable soup.

I have another solution for you…homemade soup, made easy!

Today is World Vegan Day and the first day of World Vegan Month. As I paused a moment to acknowledge this day, it brought me back to that infamous day in November, 1997, when I was thrust  into transition because Freya Dinshah, Executive Director of the American Vegan Society, recommended that I read the book Skinny Bitches (written by Rory Freedman and Kim Barnouin) to learn more about what it means to adopt a vegan lifestyle.

How many times have you been asked that question?  Far too many to count, for sure.  What’s the saying….if only I had a dollar for every time I’d been asked that question.

While the belief that we must have a protein-rich diet is permeating our society today, largely

Over the past several years, I’ve noticed that oftentimes the terms “vegetarian” and “vegan” are misunderstood by not only the general population at large but also within our own veg community. And using those terms when attempting to order a meal at a restaurant frequently becomes what would make for

Don’t you just love being resourceful? Whoever had the brilliant idea of using the liquid from a can of garbanzo beans as an egg white rather than tossing it down the kitchen drain is nothing short of a culinary genius! Oh, and the name it’s been given – Aquafaba –
