Awaken your Food Sense

When it comes to food, the internet is one of my favorite tools. Yes, cookbooks are amazing, but sometimes you can’t find a recipe to fit your mood, taste, or time at that very moment. In comes the internet. Look up a combo of anything and you’re sure to find something just right. Julie has [...]

My favorite veggie burger

I’ve had my fair share of veggie burgers: the store bought and homemade kind. I can’t remember not liking any of the veggie burgers I’ve made, but many of them fell apart in the making, were too dry, or took forever to make. Not these! My dad even likes these (he asked for seconds!) and [...]

Fruit smoothies go great with everything… especially vegan French toast

I think it’s safe to say I spoiled myself the day this was my breakfast (although, I didn’t eat all of it myself). Thanks to my Thursday fasting, I’ve been taking extra time to make a scrumptious breakfast the following morning. I found this delicious and simple recipe on the wonderful VegWeb. French toast is another one [...]

The delicious taste of samosas in a bowl

Allow me to introduce to you one of my new favorite dishes. I’ve made this three times already and while working on this post right now, I’m shocked I didn’t make it a forth time (thank you, fasting)! When I lived in London, I did a summer internship with PETA Europe. They covered my lunch [...]

Simple six ingredient pancakes

As I mentioned in the previous post, pancakes were one of the breakfast foods that I was worried I’d be missing out on since turning vegan. Then I found this super simple recipe and will never have to fear again! I can’t believe I ever used to make pancakes out of a box when this [...]

Super soft chocolate chunk cookies

I’ve only ever followed one vegan chocolate chip recipe and my cookies came out hard so this time around I specifically looked for a soft recipe. I found this recipe from the Post Punk Kitchen and let me tell you… they were good! The first time I made them (Saturday right before Earth Hour) they [...]

The best brownies I’ve ever eaten

I’ve only ever made brownies out of a box and they were always non-vegan. This is the first time I’ve ever made brownies from scratch and they turned out so much better than I expected! Everyone loved them. They were the perfect amount of light and moist. I’ve been dreaming about them ever since the [...]

Homemade hummus

Hummus has become one of my very favorite foods and it’s become a staple for my diet ever since I became a vegan vegetarian living in London. It was rare to not find hummus in every store containing food. In Indiana there were a few stores that had a variety of hummus. Switzerland… not so [...]

Oatmeal breakfast topped with syrupy goodness

When I lived in London, for the last few months of my being there I re-discovered the greatness that is oatmeal. I hadn’t ate any of it in years and always saw it as something that didn’t look all that appetizing. I ended up really loving it and had it almost every single day for [...]

Quinoa + carrots + chickpeas dinner

I’ve loved food recipes with photos and more than just words ever since I saw images of IKEA’s cookbook. I’ve seen a ton innovative recipes all over the internet and I thought it was about time I tried out my own version. What do you think? Check out my recipe in detail…
