    We are surrounded by information these days, from Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, TV News, News Apps, Google etc. Then; you have to question if it’s a reliable source, is the study sponsored? I’ve had a number of people reach out to me to discuss either a documentary they’ve seen or to get some recommendations. Knowledge is not only powerful, but also addicting. That’s why I wanted to create posts categorizing and outlining the best vegan documentaries to watch. . How it Started for us After watching Forks Over Knives I became absolutely addicted to watching documentaries, but this was back in 2011! Netflix was a brand new thing. We were in the middle…

This meal is great for those tough nights where you just don’t know what to make for dinner. This was created on one of those nights. We had a variety of pre-cut vegetables, some left over vegetable broth and with some seasonings a delicious meal was created. To add more protein we love to dice up the Field Roast Sausages and toss them into the mix. The quantities are odd with this one. I’d say its a large portion for 2 people or a small/medium sized portion…

    Green Lentil Vegetable Soup

    Green Lentil Vegetable Soup…who would’ve thought I’d be creating warm soup recipes in the middle of July?! But, here I am 🤷🏼‍♀️ I’m often confronted with people telling me they’re searching for more protein in their diet. Especially when contemplating switching to vegan/plant-based. I find it comes easy to me, once you really open up to other foods that you normally wouldn’t go for. Nuts, seeds and different vegetables all provide exactly what you need.

    Crispy BBQ Cauliflower Wings

      It all started with Super Bowl…but don’t all good food stories start that way? February 2nd 2020 was when the San Fransisco 49’ers went to the Super Bowl against the Kansas City Chiefs and I made crispy bbq cauliflower wings. Unfortunately for my husband and the rest of San Fran, they were defeated in the last quarter by the chiefs. But, fortunately for myself, my crispy BBQ Cauliflower Wings were a giant win! The build up to the Super Bowl was big this year since my husband’s team was playing. Becoming predominantly plant based 2 months before caused snackage to be a big topic before the game. We have…
