Comfort Foods Are Vegan Too!

Whole Foods Vegans aren’t alien. In times of illness, stress or worry, fears and loathings; like most people, we look to food for comfort. Sure, it may not be fried chicken or chocolate ice-cream but it’s just as hearty and warm and your soul sighs, “that was delicious”.  Our souls need to sigh. It brings…… Continue reading Comfort Foods Are Vegan Too!

What’s In Your Kitchen!? 

I had a friend ask me to post about the types of Whole Foods Plant Based staples I keep around my kitchen and why. As she and others are exploring the transition to reducing their animal product intake and a WFPB lifestyle, this post might be helpful!

Vegan Birthday Blueberry Muffins 

I advanced to the thirty-seventh level of life yesterday.  I don’t look back longing for when my breasts were un-nursed from and perkier, or when the skin of my belly was unmarked by the signs of bringing new and precious lives into the world or the times of irresponsibility and childhood innocence.

Now the reason I don’t typically…… Continue reading Friday’s Are The Best

Why Plants? 

“It’s so extreme!”  I’ve heard that more times than I can count. Really? Eating only plants is extreme? Please… What is extreme is having your chest literally cracked open, and taking a vein from your leg to put into your heart just so you can keep eating bacon, steak and hamburgers.  What’s extreme is taking…… Continue reading Why Plants? 

The Rare Baker 

I no longer bake often. I realized in the not so distant past that all of the medical and nutritional articles I’ve read about refined sugar being literally more addictive than crack, sadly (yet absolutely) applied to me. My husband had this thing when we were dating where he’d always ask me if I wanted…… Continue reading The Rare Baker
