Plant-Powered Holiday: Beet and Pomegranate Seed Salad

December 12th, 2012 | by Guest Contributor

Food-filled festivities are inevitable this time of year. Whether it’s a workplace potluck, a cocktail party, or a good old-fashioned family gathering, food ultimately plays a starring role. And while health is often put on the back burner this time of year, perhaps it’s time to start a new holiday tradition – a tradition that embraces both good food and good health. This is where a plant-powered diet comes into play


Organic Doesn’t Always Mean Healthy

November 29th, 2012 | by Becky Striepe

I ran across an interesting video that talks about organic junk food that I thought makes some really good points.

November 19th, 2012 | by Tanya Sitton

Now let's get down to business: celebrating Thanksgiving vegan-style, in our meat-soaked food culture, can pose special challenges. Maybe it's your first Unturkey Day since going vegan, and you're wondering what to serve. Perhaps you're traveling to visit non-veg relatives, or hosting omni guests. Social pressure to conform to others' visions of 'tradition' can be daunting, especially coming from family members or close friends. Not to worry! With a bit of planning and forethought, there's no reason for your vegan Thanksgiving to be anything other than joyful and delicious


Turkeys, Marketing, and Thanksgiving Tradition Invention

November 17th, 2012 | by Tanya Sitton

Many Americans struggle to even imagine celebrating Thanksgiving without a deceased turkey on the table. Most don’t realize that in fact it’s a completely invented ‘tradition,’ woven from thin air about 200 years after the colonial celebration this holiday commemorates. The idea (surprise!) caught on like wildfire among industrial turkey producers; and the rest, as they say, is history. Modern Thanksgiving customs show clearly how we make up our own ‘traditions’ to follow – so why not create new ones, better suited to our own values of compassion and nonviolence

May 4th, 2012 | by The Green Divas

I love all the vegan foodie porn out there on Pinterest and FoodGawker and of course, the recipes on sites like this one! Found this one that claimed a quick and easy mole (the traditional Mexican spicy chocolate sauce that is kinda like brown crack) . . . have you ever tried to make mole?
