Interview with Gina Marie, Vegan with Curves

Interview with Gina Marie, Vegan with Curves

Back in 2018, as we were preparing to eat vegan for 30 days, I interviewed two vegan bloggers. One of them was Benita Gibbs from At Meme’s Table. The other was Gina Marie from Vegan with Curves. Recently, I was having a conversation with a friend who had gone on a vegan diet, but hadn’t experienced the great weight loss that she had expected. When […]

Does Vegan Fish and Chips Taste Good?

Does Vegan Fish and Chips Taste Good?

Vegan fish and chips was something that we tried during our 30 days of vegan experiment. Baker’s Man is a huge fan of fish and chips, but having grown up in the United States, he doesn’t need mushy peas with his fish and chips. He is, however, a bit of a snob about his fish. While eating vegan for a month, I knew that he […]

Five Dollar Grocery Challenge

Five Dollar Grocery Challenge

What is a five dollar grocery challenge? I learned of this challenge from Amanda over at The Fundamental Home YouTube Channel. She completed two of these challenges, but I’m only completing one challenge. This challenge gives you five dollars with which you are required to get enough food for one person for three meals per day for three days. This challenge is based upon the […]

Vegan Banana Nut Muffins

Vegan Banana Nut Muffins

This recipe for vegan banana nut muffins happened by accident.  Everyone knows that I love making my easy 1-2-3 banana bread, and I’ve even come up with a vegan version for my 30 Days of Vegan Challenge.  Since it’s time to start heading back to school, I thought that making some banana muffins for lunches might be a good idea, but I didn’t have any […]

Chia Breakfast Pudding

Chia Breakfast Pudding

Chia breakfast pudding is an amazing, simple way to prepare breakfasts on those hectic mornings.   It’s almost like having dessert for breakfast, but it’s healthy.  Here’s my confession.  I have a huge sweet tooth, and sometimes, I really want something sweet for breakfast.  Fortunately for me, Chia Breakfast Pudding has come to my rescue, and it helps me to get a serving of fruit under […]

Meditteranean Beans

Mediterranean Beans

Mediterranean Beans are a simple, yet tasty way to get beans on the table quickly.  These beans get their flavor from a mixture of herbs and vegetables.  When the Mediterranean beans are ready for serving, some good quality extra virgin olive oil is added to the pot to give it a definitive Mediterranean flair.   Because Mediterranean beans are made with small white beans, they cook […]

Reflections on the 30 days of vegan challenge

Reflections on 30 Days of Vegan

The 30 days of vegan challenge has come to an end, and as I have done for the previous two 30 day challenges, I feel compelled to reflect on the challenge and tell you what I learned.  I have to admit that the 30 days of vegan challenge was much more challenging than 30 days of beans and 30 days of cans.  Compared to eating […]

Vegetable Kabobs

Vegetable Kabobs (Or is it Kebabs?)

Vegetable kabobs are something that I’ve made before, but it wasn’t something I ever really considered as an entrée prior to beginning our 30 days of vegan.  I’ve made veggie kabobs before, but usually as an accompaniment to a meat entree.   As the month progressed, and we had some warmer days, I longed to make dinner on the grill.  The only problem was that […]

Vegan Desserts

Vegan Desserts

It seems only fitting that as our month of vegan comes to a close, that I begin to think about vegan desserts.  When I began this challenge, I thought that my only dessert for 30 days would be pieces of fruit, and while that might have been the most healthy choice, I wanted a real dessert.    Don’t get me wrong.  A beautiful fruit plate is […]

Ceviche Tostada (Vegan)

Ceviche Tostada (Vegan)

Ceviche Tostadas  are one of my favorite things, but being vegan for a month means I can’t have fish.  Fortunately, I had already come up with a recipe for cauliflower ceviche which was liked by everyone in the family.  Granted, Baker’s Man complained that I shouldn’t call it ceviche because there was no fish or shrimp in the recipe.  I solved that problem when I […]
