Vegan Under Pressure Review & Giveaway

Tuesday, February 9, 2016

Can you feel the pressure? Can you? The title of this new book sounds like the story of my life lately, but luckily it’s just a good ol’ pressure cooker cookbook. Vegan Under Pressure* is a new cookbook by Jill Nussinow, MS, RDN, aka The Veggie Queen. Jill is a veteran pressure cooker cook (see our review of The New Fast Food) and she whips up all sorts of healthful foods and desserts in this new book. If you’re new to pressure cooking, fret not, Jill covers the basic about the pots themselves as well...

Tribest Sedona Express Dehydrator Giveaway

Monday, February 8, 2016

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 and freezing large batches of food. Why...

Kajitsu – Japanese Shojin Cuisine in NYC

Saturday, February 6, 2016

We were recently in NYC for a multi-birthday celebration, and had the opportunity to have dinner at Kajitsu. It’s a vegan (at least for dinner) Japanese restaurant that does multi-course meals based on a Japanese culinary tradition originated from Zen Budhism called shojin. The menu changes constantly to use ingredients that are in season and is inspired by the time of the year, festivals and other Japanese traditions. When we were there it was late autumn, so all the dishes were based around fall ingredients....

Jambu – Arctic Vegan Boot

Thursday, January 28, 2016

Who doesn’t like to look stylish while wearing a warm and comfy, vegan winter boot? I certainly do. Luckily, Jambu has a line of women’s vegan shoes to fill this gap. Since I reviewed the Jambu Princeton last year, they’ve expanded the women’s line of vegan shoes and boots (yay!), added a vegan tab and labeled all their vegan shoes on their website, and even added a physical “vegan” tag to the shoes (see pic below). There’s absolutely no doubt you’re getting a lovely vegan...

Ecco Bella Review & Interview with Sally Malanga

Friday, January 8, 2016

The health and beauty market is booming with eco- and vegan-friendly make-up, personal care and beauty products. We’re so fortunate, and so are the animals and our planet, to have an ever growing demand for cruelty-free products and to have companies willing to push themselves to fill this demand. Let’s face it, the world we live in is very animal ingredient-centric, which poses a challenge for such companies to bring us high quality products and change market trends. I recently had the opportunity to try...

Veganuary – Make the Pledge

Wednesday, December 30, 2015

As of this week, more than 10,000 new people have pledged to join the annual ‘Veganuary’ campaign and try vegan for the whole month of January. Meat-eaters, pescetarians, and dairy/egg-loving vegetarians in 115 countries have committed to eat a vegan diet for one month for animals, the environment, and their own health. While we’re all in favor of small steps like Meatless Mondays, Veganuary campaign organizers Matthew Glover and Jane Land say trying vegan for a full month makes it easier to break meaty habits...

Early Morning – An Essay by Karen Winkler

atovegan_karen-winkler_

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 […]
