Don’t Call Me “Honey”

I hate being called “honey”, if you couldn’t tell from the title of this post. I could tackle this issue from a feminist perspective, but today I am actually going to discuss why you shouldn’t use honey as a product and this relates to the language we use. Honey is bee excrement, so why call…

Thai Peanut Noodles // Vegan

This is something that sounds complicated, but really this recipe is incredibly easy. I make peanut noodles whenever I need a quick meal that is very filling and nutritious. This recipe is plant-based of course, but carnivores will also like this. I used a meat substitute, but that is not even necessary. Difficulty: Easy Prep…

Vegan “Tuna” Salad

This summer has made me so nostalgic. I have especially been thinking about foods I used to eat in the summertime. For me, summer reminds me of family barbecues. At these barbecues, people bring all sorts of dishes covered in mayonnaise. This could be tuna salad, potato salad, chicken salad, crab salad, etc. The way…

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies // Vegan

“Do you only eat salads?”. I laugh every time someone asks this. Eating vegan doesn’t have to be boring. I have proved this time and time again. Before making this recipe, I didn’t really eat cookies. That’s changed for sure. These cookies are easy to make, really tasty, and somewhat healthy. PRINTER FRIENDLY VERSION Oven:…

Vegan on a Budget

I constantly hear people say that they don’t have enough money to eat healthier. They “can’t afford to be vegan”.  It’s actually a myth that healthy food is more expensive than junk food (unless you live in a food desert, which is a completely different issue). In the long run, whole plant foods are more…
