After much self-reflection and shame spiraling, I’ve taken three of my favorite childhood foods and veganized them. Continue reading
While many use holiday parties as the perfect excuse to pig out, for vegans, it can mean a long night of starvation. When you’re hosting your own party, you can make sure that the menu is full of food that will please both vegans and omnivores, but when you go to a friend’s party, you’re at the mercy of their eating habits. Although many hostesses put out a veggie and hummus plate, that probably won’t be enough to sustain you throughout the night, especially if you’re getting into the holiday spirits. (Let’s give thanks that alcohol is almost always vegan.) Still, there are a few things you can do to ensure you won’t go hungry during the holiday season. Continue reading
When I was younger, I used to eat as little Thanksgiving turkey as I could get away with. Even when I was given the smallest piece of turkey, I still employed sophisticated strategies to avoid eating it (i.e. pushing the pieces around my plate). Since I never really liked turkey, I’m not a huge fan of Tofurkey either.
The highlight of Thanksgiving, for me, has always been the sides. From infancy, I adored stuffing and mashed potatoes. Even though I can eat solid foods with ease now, I still choose not to. This year, I’ll also be celebrating Thanks-giv-ukkah (that’s Thanksgiving and Hanukkah combined), so I decided to make one my favorite Hanukkah sides, potato latkes, with a sweet twist.

Welcome to November, the middle child of the holiday season. Between coming down from your Halloween vegan candy high and looking forward to that one night of crazy overindulgence, Thanksgiving, it may be difficult to stay trim during this time of year. The holiday season is full of festive food options, and, believe it or not, your morning green smoothie is no exception. Continue reading
While a Tofurky sandwich may be tasty on occasion, if you’re eating it every night because you can’t make anything else, you may be in need of some vegan life hacks. A life hack is a strategy or technique you can do to manage your time and daily activities in a more efficient way. Vegans like to claim that sticking to a vegan lifestyle is easy—and it is—when you have a fully stocked kitchen and hours to kill.
If you’re new to the vegan lifestyle, however, you can easily get discouraged if it’s not as easy as the famous vegan foodies make it seem. Eating right as a new vegan takes time, effort, and commitment, but there are small, simple things you can do every day to make your new vegan life easier. Continue reading
Put down the Halloween candy and pick up the avocados. All the cool kids (read: people who spend too much time on Twitter) know that October is Guac-tober. If a pun isn’t a good enough reason to eat your weight in guacamole and chips, then I don’t know what is. Continue reading
