My dear friend, Kate, came by for an impromptu dinner before we ran off to a fun night of show-going at a tiny local venue. (Dana, the baker from my favorite vegan diner, Bragg’s Factory Diner, was playing in her band JJCnV, so you know it was a blast!) I made a delicious dinner of lentils cooked with garlic and red wine, brown basmati rice, and lemon-garlic kale but I needed something cool for my sweet tooth. Vegan ice cream to the rescue!
1 can full fat coconut milk, chilled
1/4 cup maple syrup or more to taste

From my buddy, Rikki, who has been working very hard on this worthwhile project:
I have been working on this project with a friend of mine Heather, to get an all plant-based grocery store open in Phoenix. I know for some of you not living in the valley or even miles and miles away this may not seem that important or even interesting, but what this can be is a foundation for future markets to open and model themselves after VegCo Market <—that is what we are calling it. It is an all plant-based (this means no meat, no dairy, no...

I broke my veggie mandolin slicer about a year ago and my cooking has not been the same. I used to slice up anything and everything really quickly and with ease. I do not have serious knife skills.. or even very basic ones for that matter so no mandolin made me extra lazy in the kitchen. In comes Fresh and Easy. I feel like their infomercial now. I really couldn’t stand them when they first opened here because my first experience there I was confused and they didn’t have epsom salts. :c) All of my friends kept raving about them...
This meal cooks in less than five minutes and is deeeelicious! Really, this is my excuse to eat a heap of sauerkraut and I do so with glee. Despite being absolutely tasty it comes packed with protein, vitamins from the peppers, expectorant powers of onion, and all of nutrients of cabbage plus the fermenty, digestion boosting, healthiness that sauerkraut is naturally equipped with. Sauerkraut is a power-food renowned across the world, even its juice is used medicinally in Chinese Medicine. Read more about how awesome sauerkraut is here or...
