  • Tofu + Veggie Fried Rice

    Happy Friday! It’s a typical winter day in Bermuda – temps in the 60s and it’s cloudy. Cool, but not cold. This time of year, I want nothing but bowls of comfort food. Think mashed potatoes, risotto, pasta, shepherd’s pie, that sort of thing. But the way my goals are set up, I can only eat those things in moderation as they tend to be off plan. But rice, I…

  • Recipe: The Ultimate Plant Based Breakfast

    Breakfast is the hardest plant based meal to get right. Most restaurants have plenty vegan or plant based options for lunch and dinners and if they don’t, they are usually more than happy to whip something up for you. But breakfast, yea right.

  • Vegan Red Velvet Cupcakes

Some people make very basic versions but I’m a bit of a snob and have researched chocolate chip cookies extensively to create the perfect cookie. Sometimes I brown the butter, sometimes I just use softened butter. I make almost a rustic version and have for years…

  • Here’s Why I Eat A Plant Based Diet

    I get asked on a regular basis why I decided to switch to eating a mainly plant based diet. I figured I would sit down and actually figure out the true reason and let you in on it as well. A bit of background – I was raised in a vegan household where everything was made from scratch. My mom lovingly cooked us three meals a day with the best…

  • Best Vegan Eats in Barcelona

    When one thinks of Catalan food, healthy doesn’t really come to mind. Patatas Bravas, Bombas, Russian Salad, Crème Catalan, all the pastries and of course the wine doesn’t exactly make for a healthy meal. Tasty, absolutely, but good for the waistline, absolutely not. In my quest to find fabulous food in Barcelona, I also wanted to find healthy eats – more specifically, vegan and vegetarian cuisine. I wanted to be…
