Food Fun – Pita Pocket Joes

I love food, and part of my plant-based cooking excursions have been to incorporate as many healthy habits, as well as recipes, into our routine. It's been scary fun *interesting* testing out various internet recipe finds on my family. My husband grew up eating meat and typical American fare, so finding recipes that 1. don't … Continue reading Food Fun – Pita Pocket Joes

My Job

It has been nearly 2.5 years since I made the decision to no longer eat anything with a face. I'll gladly offer resources and information when requested, but am not out to convert others to become vegetarian or vegan. (I will never be accepted in the vegan camp becuase I still have a leather couch, … Continue reading My Job

From the Nope Files

My hilarious friend (from Halcyon Hive) regularly posts on Facebook what she refers to as the "Nope files..." and showcases all kinds of awful insects and bugs from her part of the country.

This week we tried a vegan pulled "pork" sandwich that was featured on Tasty Vegetarian's facebook page. WOW. The flavors did not disappoint, however the jackfruit, was ...messy. (To put it mildly.) Here's the video, if you are interested: It was very tasty, but sadly, we were missing an ingredient so a trip to the … Continue reading Culinary Escapades

Food Adventuring

A question I got was "So, what are you going to actually EAT if you go vegetarian?" All of the things. You know, except for things with a face. In cattle country (aka Texas), it seems like going vegetarian is just crazy.¬†Seriously, though - there are SO many whole food, plant-based items to eat - … Continue reading Food Adventuring

Anticipation

I've always been afraid of it. I don't really know why. Frequently maligned and mocked things can come across as scary. It was with great trepidation I even gathered the courage to... put it in my grocery cart. But I did it. Steeling myself as I reached for what I assumed was gelatinous goo, I … Continue reading Anticipation
