Feeding That Effing Vegan this Holiday Season

Pin It

First and foremost, I extend solidarity. We have all been there before: the first meal that you either attended as vegan new to the scene, or the first meal that you prepared in your pre-veg life for the token plant-eater at the dinner table. There are a few of us who have been vegan since Continue Reading …

Towards the end of summer in Vancouver, we begin to see the posts. Usually, they are signalled by the seasonal shifts of Starbucks cups and marketing focuses; and their role in introducing (and promoting, extensively) the infamous Pumpkin Spice Latte. The incredibly speed at which the “PSL” not only hit the market, but influenced an entire Continue Reading …

Apricots, fresh off of our local fruit trees, are everywhere right now!

With 20 grams of plant based protein, fibre that’s guaranteed to get you movin’, and loads of electrolytes and iron, this ugly little mess goes to prove you Continue Reading …
