    Inauthentic Vegan Falafel

    I researched a lot of falafel recipes. Many of them said things like “you must use chickpea flour” or “canned chickpeas WILL NOT work”. That’s a bit dramatic. I enjoy authentic falafel; but when I make it at home, I am not going to go out of my way to make a glorified veggie patty. So if you are wondering why “inauthentic” is in the title, it’s because this is a more Americanized and forgiving recipe. Nonetheless, it is delicious and healthy.

In the long run, whole plant foods are more affordable and way better for your health and the environment. It doesn’t have to be hard or expensive to eat plant-based. With the tips I provide you and a little planning, you will realize how easy it can be to adopt this lifestyle. Buy in season. If you prefer fresh produce (who doesn’t), buy fruits and…

    Fruit: Vegan Advice

    Welcome back to my second post in my vegan advice series! I am addressing fruit today. I cringe when I hear “diet experts” say that you should only eat fruit in moderation. Or that certain fruits are unhealthy because of their glycemic index. As a vegan, these statements just make me laugh. I eat tons of fruit as do a lot of people and I have never had negative experiences from it. If anything eating large amounts of fruit has my improved energy, skin, and health in general. I know that not everyone agrees with veganism or a plant-based diet, but eating more fruits and vegetables is not a detriment…
