Diving into Vegan Pressure Cooking by JL Fields

  I know I’m late to the party (the cookbook came out in January), but Vegan Pressure Cooking by JL Fields is just too good not to share with you all! Not only is JL one of my dear friends, but she also wrote one hell of a cookbook. I had the privilege of recipe testing for this book, and I have to say that it was a truly enjoyable experience. The recipes are so tasty, that you will hardly believe they are so simple to prepare. And that, my dear readers, is the main point of JL’s cookbook; Delicious, compassionate food...

Health Minute: 7 Vegetables that Burn Fat

Look at your amazing faces! I can’t believe I’ve been away from them for so long! Well, I’m back, at least intermittently for a while, and I wanted to dive right into some great info that can help you on your journey to wellness, no matter where you are starting from. Whether you want to build muscle or lose weight (or even just maintain you current body), making sure that fat is used for energy rather than being stored is an important part of the equation. For the last few years, I’ve become more engrossed in studying...

Guest Post: Energizing Drink with Spirulina

This post contains some great information on the health benefits of spirulina as well as a recipe for a delicious drink that will provide you with all-natural energy for the day.

A Very Vegan Cuts Holiday

Since it’s internet debut, I’ve had a love affair with Vegan Cuts. For those of you who don’t know, Vegan Cuts is an online vegan marketplace that offers tons of vegan goodies at low prices. And we aren’t just talking about food (though, if we are being honest, that’s the only thing we are concerned with anyway) – they have tons of great deals on compassionate accessories, environmentally-conscious gifts, and more. I didn’t have time to put together my usual gift guide (you can view my previous guides...

Beyond Meat Shepherd’s Pie Recipe

Well hello, fine readers. I’ve been absent for some time, but I hope to be back more frequently now that the littlest one is already getting so big. Enough of this though – let’s get on to the recipe! I’d been hesitant for some time to jump on the Beyond Meat bandwagon. I’d heard nothing but good things about it from many of my vegan friends (especially from JL), but I’ve always been a little bit wary of bringing too many meat analogs into my diet. However, after having another little one and realizing that...

Cooler Weather Means It’s Tea Time!

Cooler Weather Means It’s Tea Time!

I always say this, but it doesn’t make it any less true: time flies. I just sent my eldest off to her first day of 2nd grade and my littlest is already 5 weeks old – where does the time go!? Even though I’m sad that my littles are growing up so fast, one thing that always comes with the Autumn season is cooler weather, and with the cooler weather I can finally get back to my tea time. I generally don’t let the warm weather deter me from a nice cup of tea, but since I was pregnant for the majority of the summer I...

Fresh From the Garden

This summer is passing by so quickly, I’ve hardly had time to stop and smell the roses – or in my case – the dill! I am a flower killer, sad to say, but it’s something I’ve come to terms with. Even with my uncanny ability to kill anything that has a beautiful flower on it, I have somehow gained the knowledge and luck to be able to grow edibles magnificently. Which, if you ask me, is much more practical anyway. I digress… This year I tried some new things in my vegetable garden and I’ve  had a lot of...

Berry-Herb Smoothie

Happy early 4th of July (and a late Canada Day)! I know not all of us get a long weekend, but since most of us do, I thought it would be a good time to post this recipe I’ve been hoarding all to myself for a while. Normally I like to enjoy an ice-cold cocktail or beer while I relax over the long holiday weekend, but since the little one hasn’t emerged yet (I suppose it does still technically have a few weeks left to marinate, technically), I have to find other , non-alcoholic ways to cool down this weekend. This berry-herb...

Vegan for Fit Review

Hi everyone! I hope your summer is going swimmingly so far! We’ve had lots of rain and flooding here, so it hasn’t been all rainbows and kittens, but overall it’s been an excellent summer break so far. We went to Door County again this year, though we had to move it up due to this little making its arrival soon. It was a little cooler than usual, but we still had a great time and avoided bad weather. Right when we returned, I had to jet off to Vegas for work, which is much less glamorous than it seems. Anyway, my point to...
