Vegan Fitness for Mortals

I’ve never been very athletic. I have two left feet, I’m super klutzy, and I was always the last person picked in any kind of activity in gym class. I understand the importance of exercise, though, and I always advocate for both physical activity and a healthy

Baked Veggie Pan Omelet from Protein Ninja

You’re vegan? But, but where do you get your protein? We’re a culture obsessed with protein. I’m amazed at the amount of people who have asked me where I get my protein or tell me that they’d like to go vegan but they “need their protein.” Are

Curried Garbanzo Cakes with Poppy Seeds from Healing the Vegan Way

People have quite often told me that being vegan is difficult where they live, or that finding vegan food can be hard in other parts of the country. I may be a little spoiled because I live within walking distance of a Whole Foods, but I know

Chickpea Pizza with Asparagus and Pea Shoot Tangle from Chickpea Flour Does It All

I get many requests to review cookbooks, and I usually only say yes to the vegan cookbooks. I like supporting vegan authors, and I don’t want a book full of recipes that I can’t make. (Or have to figure out how to veganize.) For these reasons, I

Banh Mi Tostadas from 100 Best Vegan Recipes by Robin Robertson

Juice + Nourish by Rosemary Ferguson

Last fall, I was lucky enough to have been sent both a new high-speed blender and a new juicer to review. I loved both of them, so I vowed that I would start using them on a regular basis. I’ve gone through daily juice and smoothie phases
