Really like this salad I just invented: coleslaw mix (white and red cabbage with carrots) with veganaise (original blue), mixed with a lot of organic spring mix + tempeth. Takes a couple of minutes to put together and is very satisfying and filling!

Rustic Potato Leek Soup! It was so delicious after my long run in the cold.


2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil*

1 cup chopped yellow onion

3 large leeks, white and pale green parts, chopped

3 cloves garlic, finely chopped

2 teaspoons salt

3 medium red potatoes, chopped

1 bay leaf

4 cups vegetable broth*

2 cups rice milk*

1 tablespoon chopped dill

Salt and pepper to taste



Heat oil over medium heat in a large soup pot. Add onions, leeks, garlic and salt and cook for 6 to 8 minutes, or until translucent and softened. Add potatoes, bay leaf, and broth and bring soup to a boil. Reduce heat to medium low, cover, and cook until potatoes are tender, about 35 minutes. Add rice milk and dill and simmer, uncovered, for 5 more minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Discard bay leaf and serve.

Best Vegan Meal this year...

Yesterday I had a sandwich especially made for me on gluten-free bread with lettuce, tomato, avocado, sprouts, and tempeh (YUMMMY)...with sugar-snap peas and hummus. It was light, tasty, and filling! I know it is not outlandish or inspiring to most but it sure hit the spot for me! Sometimes simplicity tastes so gooood!

The best meal I've had so far this year was:


Maple tamari tempeh, brown rice with white beans and nutritional yeast, tamari braised kale, sauerkraut and a blood orange.


May not sound very exciting but it was very tasty. So much so I'm going to make it again tomorrow!
