Vegan Tacos Cookbook Review

atovegan_taco

One of my favorite go-to and easy meals is tacos. I always keep some corn tortillas in the freezer for those nights when I really don’t want to think about making a big meal. I generally use a combination of leftovers and other items in my fridge. I also prefer corn tortillas over wheat, because they are more flavorful authentic. Now, Jason Wyrick’s Vegan Tacos* cookbook... Read More

Better Bean is now one of our favorites to keep on hand. They have 5 types of prepared and well seasoned beans that are ready to heat and eat. Of... Read More

Ellovi Body Butter Review

atovegan_ellovi

This winter was brutal here in PA. It was cold, it was dry, it got colder and it got drier. My skin was drier than it’s ever been, for a little while at least.

Ellovi body butter is made with... Read More

Nurture My Body Giveaway

I’m always on the lookout for a good facial moisturizer for different times of the year, even though I already have a few favorites. My skin is slightly on the dry side so I need a heavy duty one in the colder months and a medium weight one from spring to the beginning of fall. Spring is finally around the corner (it just can’t get here quick enough in PA) and I’m... Read More

Better Than Vegan Cookbook Giveaway

atovegan_better-than-vegan_breakfast-burritos

What could be Better Than Vegan* you may ask. Chef Del Sroufe’s answer would be, being a healthy vegan. When Chef Del became vegan, he didn’t concern himself with what types of food he was eating, as long as they were 100% plant-based. But as the years went by and he started getting heavier and heavier, reaching 475 pounds, it was obvious to him that he needed to make... Read More
