Happy almost-spring! I know some places aren't quite feeling it yet, but we'll have a time change in a few weeks and with longer, warmer days comes a renewed sense of excitement for healthy eating. Most of us who made those great New Year's resolutions to prep our healthy meals have drifted back into old… Continue reading Hash Brown-Crusted Frittata from Vegan Yack Attack’s Plant-Based Meal Prep
I've been wanting to make these cookies for several months now, and here they are! I've never been a fan of oatmeal raisin cookies (I mean, why choose raisins when you can have chocolate chips?) but I love cranberry orange oatmeal, so why not have it in a cookie? It is perfect! They are sweet,… Continue reading Cranberry Orange Oatmeal Cookies (Vegan)

Another day.... So I decided to deconstruct an… Continue reading It’s the Lime, Baby ~ Vegan MOFO Day 6

The book was called Taking Sides by Norma Klein, and it's about a girl whose parents divorce… Continue reading Orange Flower with Maple-Ginger Cream ~ Vegan MOFO Day 3
