Tribest Sedona Express Dehydrator Giveaway

There’s something so empowering about growing and/or preserving your own food. Since Mauro and I bought our house (eons ago), I’ve gotten into the habit of prepping and preserving meals to save time during a busy week. When we first moved in, the previous owners had left a bountiful veggie garden and several fruit trees that were at their peak of production. We wanted to keep as much of the fruit and veggies as we could to extend our eating season, so I began canning... Read More

Almond Milk Cookbook Review & Give-away

We’re at the golden age of plant-based milks. Most supermarkets in the US now carry at least one type of plant milk. Be it coconut, almond, soy or rice, for the basic types, or cashew, flax, oat, hemp, sunflower, or quinoa for the not so common varieties. I’m sure I’ve forgotten some, but you get the point. “Ditch the dairy without giving up milk”. I’ll drink, eat with cereal and use in recipes any type of plant-based milk, but almond milk has... Read More

Book Review: The Good Karma Diet by Victoria Moran

The first time I saw Victoria Moran was at Vegetarian Summerfest in Johnstown, PA back in 2011. My family and I were there for the 3 day program and I saw Victoria every day; whether she was the master of ceremonies on the main stage or leading her own class, I could tell this woman had an abundance of energy. In the years since, Victoria has been incredibly busy—most notably as the founder and director of Main Street Vegan Academy, training and certifying vegan lifestyle coaches.... Read More

Back in 2013, Jill Nussinow, MS, RD, aka The Veggie Queen™, pressure cooker maven and author of The New Fast Food, contacted me and asked if I’d like to submit three recipes for her upcoming cookbook, Nutrition CHAMPS*.

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 sweet the sweetest person ever and she makes amazingly delicious vegan food. When I was transitioning... Read More

I’ve reviewed other vegan boxes here on the blog and I’m so glad I got the chance to review Petit Vour, as well. Petit Vour is a monthly delivery of cruelty-free beauty products, hand-picked from... 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 a big change in his life. He started eating a low-fat vegan diet, made with lots fresh fruit and vegetables,... Read More
