Going vegan is easy; but finding fair-trade dairy free chocolate chips at a reasonable price can be challenging!

Enjoy!

A new study by researchers at the Illinois Sustainable Technology Center found that hormones injected into dairy cows during the “production” phase may stick around much longer than expected.

Leeks are my favorite member of the allium family, which also contains garlic, onions, and scallions. Here are my favorite vegan and vegetarian leek recipes!

One of my favorite parts of the week is picking up my Growing Communities veg bag from Hackney City Farm. As I’ve written before, a veg bag is the British equivalent of a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) box, filled with organic and mostly locally grown produce. Following a veggie burger as well as carrot potato […]

This twist on classic pizza ushers in summer with a tender gluten-free crust, garlicky oven-roasted tomato sauce and the zing of fresh herbs.
