Vegan Tacos / Tostadas

Hi folks! It’s been a while since I’ve updated the site. I made these vegan tacos the other day and they were so good, I thought it was time to do so. Any Mexican food aficionado will tell you to ALWAYS USE FRESH INGREDIENTS when cooking Mexican. Seriously, do you know any Mexicans who buy […]

Vegetarian (and Vegan) Comedians

Huffington Post highlighted 13 comedians who are vegan/vegetarian and vocal about it, some more than others.  Ellen DeGeneres recently launched Going Vegan with Ellen.

Avoid Sodas and Foods with High Fructose Corn Syrup

Sometimes when I discuss my diet with others, they will point out to me a vegan they may know who might be considered obese. Just because a food or beverage is vegan doesn’t mean it’s not junk food. Take high-fructose corn syrup. High levels of fructose in the diet has been shown to be very […]
