The Vegetarian Flavor Bible Review & Giveaway

Around the same time Mauro and I were becoming vegan, I was also in the midst of becoming a foodie. We had started eating more local foods, eating seasonally thanks to our CSA shares and I was interested in becoming a better cook and baker. I would hit up my local library on a weekly basis in search of the best vegan cookbooks. On one of my weekly trips I stumbled upon The Flavor... Read More

Vegan Casseroles – Review & Giveaway

Before I get on with the review for Julie Hasson’s Vegan Casseroles*, I have a couple of confessions to make. 1) I love one-dish wonders/casseroles. They’re hearty, comforting and make the house smell great when you’re baking them. They’re also great to take to potlucks and holiday parties. 2) I have a soft spot in my heart for Julie Hasson. She’s a... Read More

The 6 Top Myths About Plant-Based Diets

Guest post by Nava Atlas Would you like to consider a plant-based (aka vegan) diet, but find yourself confused by all the conflicting information? Let’s look at some of the most persistent myths, one at a time. You’ll never get enough protein on a plant-based diet.

Tips for Omnivores Dating Vegans

Omni on Vegan: Tips for Omnivores Guest Post by Ayindé Howell and Zoë Eisenberg You’re not a vegan. And let’s face it: you may never call yourself a vegan. If you’re down to date a vegan, then good for you. The reality is, once it’s past the fun hook-up-on-a-Friday-night phase, and past the awkward “soooo, what are we?” phase, and into the comfy “we” are an “us”... Read More

Better Than Vegan Cookbook Giveaway

What could be Better Than Vegan* you may ask. Chef Del Sroufe’s answer would be, being a healthy vegan. When Chef Del became vegan, he didn’t concern himself with what types of food he was eating, as long as they were 100% plant-based. But as the years went by and he started getting heavier and heavier, reaching 475 pounds, it was obvious to him that he needed to make... Read More

EZ Tofu Press Giveaway

About a year and a half ago, we reviewed the EZ Tofu Press, a simple and very affordable kitchen gadget that helps press excess water out of tofu. We’re happy to report that after all this time, we’re still using it every time we use tofu and, despite our original concern, the boards have not really warped. It still looks pretty much like it did when we got it, the bolts... Read More

Vegan Camping

Last year Lydia and I decided to buy a chalet-style pop-up camper, so we could travel, hike, bike, and not have to worry about finding somewhere to eat, no matter where we were. If we find vegan food at local restaurants, that’s great; if not, we cook our own. We could probably have put together a more simplified set-up for our tent, but we’re getting old and want a... Read More
