Follow Your Heart’s Vegan Egg

Pin it

When Follow Your Heart launched their VeganEgg last October, there was a lot rejoicing and raised hand emojis shared in the vegan community. Sure, we had the Ener-G egg replacer for baking, as well as a whole slew of other vegan hacks, but the only way we could enjoy a good breakfast scramble or a quiche was by …

A Week of Isa

I have the tendency to get on enthusiastic about things. If you follow this blog, you’ve already seen this happen before with quinoa dinner bowls and with Brussels sprouts in general. Seriously, there was a two month stint in the fall where those delicious little cabbages made their way into just about everything I cooked. It’s like an …

New Vegan Level Achieved

Pin it

Y’all. I’m embarrassed to admit this, but I am still in a food coma from #VeganBowl2016. Truth time: I’ve never been that big of a Super Bowl fan. Traditionally, I half-enjoyed the commercials,  I tried to feign interest in the halftime show, and I staved off boredom during the game itself by eating. Sure, the gatherings that …

Attack of the Fleas!

Pin it

Happy Monday, everyone! I hope your weekend was more exciting than mine. I spent the bulk of it cleaning our house from top to bottom, which was an admittedly long overdue chore. Bedding was washed, dusty corners were swept, the bathroom was wiped down, and the anything that could be vacuumed was: not only the …

Thug Kitchen Minestrone Soup

I woke up this morning to a Snapchat from one of my best friends who is living in Chicago. The image contained only text, and it read “-5°. It is too cold to get out of bed.” I’m pretty sure I shivered for her, and I agree. How are people expected to function in temperatures …

‘Tis the Season…

Gardein holiday roast served over rice with Brussels sprouts, crasins, and walnuts. Pin it

This was my second Thanksgiving as a vegan. Earlier last week, I had about 400 words all typed and ready to go about how difficult it can be to be a vegan during the holiday season. Then I went to my parents house, and they hosted a beautiful, 100% animal-free holiday meal. They totally undercut my …

Award Winning (Vegan) Chili

It’s done. The websites are LIVE. I can finally, after about four solid months of work, breath a sigh of relief. Sure, there is still work to be done, but the bulk of this project is completed. In theory, things should start to go back to normal around here. Part of completing a software project …

Weekly Recipe Roundup

Pin it

Guys. I promise that I haven’t forgotten about this blog! Work has just been so incredibly busy. Our last set of websites go live this week for the big ol’ project that I’ve been working on, so my schedule should become less hectic soon (fingers crossed!), which means more time to post here. I have a few half-baked drafts in …

Latest Obsessions: Quinoa Dinner Bowls

Pin it

Quinoa and I used to go steady. The ancient grain made its way into our menu rotation at least bi-weekly for months, and then for reasons unbeknownst to me, it faded from our cycle. I don’t want to say I forgot about it, because how could one possibly forget about the perfect, protein-packed goodness that is quinoa? But… I …

Vegan Candy Corn

I follow a lot of various vegan groups across the interwebs. Being vegan can sometimes feel isolating, so in times of need, having the ability to cruise vegan websites definitely helps put things back into perspective for me. House Vegan posted this image in the Austin Vegan’s FB group a few weeks ago. It’s a vegan fall bucket list. …
