6 Memorial Day Vegan Burger Recipes

In our experience, there are two times of year when your dedication to a vegan meal plan is tested: the holidays and the summer season. The period between Thanksgiving and New Years is an obvious one (ahem, turkey), but why summer? It’s BBQ season. On Memorial Day, we’ll un-officially kick off the start to another summer. Three months of spending lazy days at the pool, visiting the beach, and of course, backyard barbecues. If you’re anything like me, firing up … Read more

Love it or hate it, Valentine’s Day is around the corner. Who’s already had enough of the lovey-dovey stuff?

Whether you’re romancing your friends, family, a significant other or yourself this Valentine’s … Read more


6 Perfectly Sweet Vegan Holiday Pies

I once had a friend who kept a fork in her car in case of a “pie emergency.” I wish I could take the credit for this one. But no, it wasn’t me. However, now that the holidays are here, I may have to steal the idea.

I don’t know about you, but I’ve been spending a crazy amount of money on groceries lately. It’s really kind of alarming. I’ve been thinking about how my whole paycheck ends up going to Whole Foods, and I came up with a few likely scenarios. A) It’s cold outside and I’m fattening myself up for winter. B) It’s three weeks before Christmas and I can’t stop baking cookies. C) Pomegranates are in season and I’ve been cleaning out the supermarket. … Read more


6 Ways to Use Your Thanksgiving Leftovers

When I was growing up, eating leftovers was just as much of a tradition as Thanksgiving itself. At least the way I remember it. It was turkey noodle soup for breakfast, lunch, and dinner for at least the next five days. I may be exaggerating on the breakfast bit, but soup was definitely served at least twice daily until we ran out. Now that my days of eating traditional Thanksgiving foods are over, I get sent home with a lot … Read more

5 Vegan Treats for Your Halloween Party

Trick or treat! If you’re anything like us, it’s “treat” all the way. Plus, does anyone really want to be tricked when they’re faced with the option of eating a Halloween goodie? Considering this is the only time of year it’s (kind of) acceptable to binge on candy, we’re all about indulging our cravings for sweet, sugary goodness. While Halloween candy is arguably the easiest thing to hand out to the neighborhood kids, it’s certainly not the only treat worth exploring this … Read more

It’s officially summer. I don’t know about you, but I couldn’t be happier. The sun is shining, my garden is overflowing with fresh fruits and veggies, and I seem to weasel my way into a barbecue on a weekly basis. Yeah, life is pretty good. In my experience, I’ve found that starting (and sticking to) a vegan meal plan is easiest during the summer. All I want to do is snack on watermelon and eat a giant salad for every … Read more
