What Do Vegans Eat For Dessert?

What do vegans eat for dessert? This is a question I get asked a lot. There’s a common misconception that vegans can’t eat dessert because they don’t eat dairy or eggs. At times, I even feel like there’s a misconception that we don’t eat at all. I’m frequently asked “But what do you EAT?” with mild […]

Quinoa Breakfast Porridge

How do I love you quinoa? Let me count the ways… Quinoa is a fantastic food for a veggie or a vegan. Or even a “normal” person! Every time someone says “But where do you get your protein from?” when you mention that you don’t eat animals, you invariably list things like spinach, kale, broccoli (yes, aside […]

In fairness, BBC is run by Californian surfer guys who migrated to Australia. It’s not like two Aussie bogans set up shop thinking they […]

Kale, Quinoa, Carrot and Beet Salad

  At the beginning of this year, a bunch of articles on high profile news sites circulated about the new “dangers of kale”. Because, apparently, Americans need more reasons not to eat fresh food. I eat a lot of kale. It makes delicious chips (and that’s a big endorsement coming from me – chips are […]

Rise Above – St. Catharine’s, Canada

  Rise Above St Catharine’s Canada I don’t catch public transit. Anyone who knows me in the real world or reads this blog would be acutely aware of this. I will walk for hours rather than get on a train or bus. It’s not that I’m a (total) weirdo about this and have an unusual […]
