Some people cannot tolerate as much fiber for a certain period of time due to intestinal disorders that forbid otherwise or if they need to ingest a higher … More A High Fiber Vegan Diet: How? Why? When? What About Supplemental Fiber?
Throwing back to one of the recipes we created for the Food Science Club here! I know this isn’t quite the correct time to consume what would be considered a “heavy” and creamy soup, but believe me, when it becomes cold at night, this pumpkin curry soup is a dish you will want every single … More Pumpkin Curry Soup
Once upon a time, I was obsessed with Indian curry. Shortly after, I fell head-over-heels with Thai curry and enjoyed both heartily whenever and wherever I could. Instantly, curry became my favorite meal of all-time and I seized to try all types of renditions of this lovely dish. The first time I ever tried Japanese … More Vegan Japanese Curry (easy and gluten free friendly)
Put me on “My Strange Addiction” because I am officially obsessed with cauliflower rice sushi. Granted it has been a while since we’ve had cauliflower rice in our kitchen…same with raw and crunchy almond butter. By that, I mean it’s been a day. I’m suffering.

Because guys, hanging leg … More Easy Vegan Green Curry…with a secret ingredient!

I have always wanted to make a vegan cheese sauce, but never actually did so. Reason why? Literally EVERY single vegan cheese sauce recipe I come across calls for cashew nuts. Don’t get me wrong, I freaking love cashew nuts, but my wallet doesn’t really feel the same way. It feels………inadequate. #brokecollegestudentproblems Alternative vegan cheese … More Vegan “Cheesy” Spaghetti
Valentine’s Day. We meet again. So it’s that time of the year where love is in the air, flowers are being picked and arranged for bouquets, cards look super lovey-dovey, and extra chocolates are stacked on shelves. Oh yeah, and then we have all the single folks who fall into two extremes: they either … More Vegan Chili (healthy + gluten free)
Even before my vegan lifestyle, I actually have always adored the taste of fake meat. Some people despise it, because the texture is wonky and is either too different from real meat, or too resemblant of it. There’s something about the slightly chewy and hearty texture of seitan and any other soy-based mock meats that … More Basic Homemade Seitan (with flavor ideas!)
