End of Season Vegan Sun Dried Tomato Pesto

Looked at several videos regarding Vegan Sun Dried Tomato Pesto. This was the easiest and least complicated. I have never thought to use nutritional yeast in my sundried tomato pesto, however, it is a great idea and I’ll do it the next time I make it and see how that tastes. A couple of notes: […]

Vegan Pumpkin Spice Latte – Low Calorie and Less Expensive!

23 September 2016

It’s Pumpkin Spice Latte season. We can’t deny it. I love Starbucks as much as anyone else – and as a matter of fact, I have a known weakness for coffee shops and cafes in general.  I’d rather go out for a hot drink than do anything else! However a Starbucks habit is expensive on a regular basis, their […]

Vegan Milk Choices

22 September 2016

Vegan Milk presents us with a lot of choices, and the different flavors and formats gives you a lot of choices.  This chart from Vegan Street’s Facebook page shows the variety.

Daiya Pizza

Grocery Store Pizza

08 September 2016

I love pizza.  And I can really do without cheese pizza at this point because I have found so many other fantastic things to put on top.  But every once in awhile… Daiya dairy-free pizza is my go-to for a creamy, cheez-y pizza. I can usually eat half of it in one sitting and then […]

Rubio's vegetable salad

Eating Out: Rubio’s

04 September 2016

A very unfortunate evening.  Rubio’s describes itself as  “coastal inspired Mexican food”. OK, that’s fine. The person I was going with wanted to try it and I am totally willing to make veganism work anywhere and everywhere. And generally I do.  And so far I have – at every place except Rubio’s.  Now, I did not expect […]

Eating Out: The Farmer’s Market

17 July 2016

Took a stroll down to the Wednesday Night downtown Farmer’s Market in Petaluma.  It’s a tiny market, maybe a block and a half.  Since it falls at dinner time, thought I’d have a bite.  The person I was with is not a vegan and immediately made a beeline to the tri-tip vendor.  My first choice was […]

Chips and Pico de Gallo Snack

15 July 2016

  My very un-vegan boyfriend was having chips and spinach dip and offered me some. He said he got it for us to share because it had yogurt in it, not realizing that yogurt is not vegan.  He is just the sweetest man on earth and very supportive of my vegan lifestyle, but like everyone else, sometimes […]

Eating Out: The Airport

13 July 2016

Airports can be the absolutely worse place to find any sort of food. Awful. They are, however, improving.  In the Long Beach airport, the waiting area has lots of charging stations for electronic devices and a really nice food court.  I have gotten a great vegan burger there, plus they have other choices.  When I […]
