Teff Love – Review & Recipe

Wednesday, May 6, 2015

Ethiopian food is one our favorites here at From A to Vegan, right  along with Indian, Moroccan and Kenyan. The flavors are so wonderful and complex due to the variety of spices used to make their flavored oils, berbere and sauces. And it’s extremely vegan friendly. In Kittee Berns’s new cookbook, Teff Love, we get the all exclusive vegan experience of Ethiopian cuisine, and it’s quite a treat. What I Liked About Teff Love Kittee gives us a brief description on Ethiopian food and the history, how...

Early Morning – An Essay by Karen Winkler

Monday, May 4, 2015

Good-bye, my dear friend.  It will be hard to be here without you.  We both are scraped and scarred from slipping on trails, and the deaths of loyal pets.   When we started volunteering together, we felt the same pull, and offered ourselves to the animals. We promised to keep them safe.  We watched countless dogs and cats take their freedom rides to new homes. I understand what made you quit.  It was the man who walked into the shelter dropping on the counter a Have-A-Heart trap holding a terrified, long-haired...

Grape Cat Announces Launch of Spring Line

Friday, April 24, 2015

Whoever still thinks looking great can’t be done with compassion for animals is sadly mistaken.  The vegan apparel shop Grape Cat, proves looking amazing and being cruelty free come hand in hand.  The company recently announced their spring selection is now available and the early response from shoppers has been wildly enthusiastic. For nearly every vegan, it’s not just what you eat, but the compassionate drive carries over into a complete lifestyle.  A big part of that, obviously, is the clothes and...

Jambu Shoes Review & Giveaway

There are so many companies making quality vegan shoes, at least for women, nowadays that it’s easy to find comfortable sporty or dressy shoes that are cruelty-free. Jambu, the makers of the of the lovely Princeton featured in this post, has been making vegan-friendly shoes and boots for women for several years now.

SunWarrior Review

Tuesday, April 14, 2015

We’re not into taking supplements. We take our B12 and a vegan D3 (mostly in the winter when we don’t get much sun) and an occasional protein smoothie when we’re lifting heavy. So when SunWarrior offered to send me samples of their products, I decided to see what it was all about. I thought SunWarrior only made raw, vegan protein powders and I wanted to see how it compared to the one we currently use, but I found out they have so much more than just protein. In fact, there were items in the sample...

Daisy – An Essay by Karen Winkler

Monday, April 13, 2015

Daisy, a pretty petite pittie, was the first shelter dog I walked who was euthanized.  She was a good dog, but shelter life — with its constant noise, overpowering smells, and irregular schedule — was too much for her.  Daisy often spent the entire day jumping and spinning uninterrupted, and her hyper, erratic behavior was trying at best.  Some people thought Daisy behaved this way because she was housebroken and could not hold it a second longer; or perhaps she hated the cage and was desperate; perhaps...

Vegan Gastronomy Tour – Ireland & England

Aran House Dinner

Last summer I went on a trip to Ireland and England and visited many locations where it’s not easy to find vegan food. It was particularly difficult to find anything to eat during the many long bus rides between towns when our only stop was usually a gas station “convenience store” or possibly a small […]
