High (Vegan) Protein Lettuce Wraps

Most of today was overcast and cool. I shopped in the village happy there were no line-ups at the grocery store;  in and out in 20 minutes.  It rained lightly through the afternoon then the sun appeared while I prepped dinner and enjoyed a Pineapple Moscow Mule my husband made me.  It’s always cocktail hour somewhere…

Barley Mushroom Salad Topped With Crispy Shallots

My poor bamboo plant is looking ragged.  Salem, my cat, has quite the palette for it. I move it around the house constantly thinking he’ll either forget about it or not find it but he always does and  chomps away at it happily.  It’s a perfectly safe plant for kitties, as are all the plants…

No Yeast Focaccia Bread

4:30pm Tuesday.  We’ve been in isolation for 1 week now.  I’ve made it a point to have a list of things to do every day.  No sitting around all day although every evening has been movie night. Dinner will be the split pea soup I made yesterday.  Not being able to just run out to…

Non Dairy Cream Of Mushroom Soup

“Nothing will benefit human health and increase the chances for survival of life on Earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet.” ―  Albert Einstein One of my favourite things about Wintertime is comfort food cooking.  The slow cooker takes centre stage on the counter and the crock pot gets to shine. It’s…

Twist On A Classic: Vegan Shepherds Pie

I’ve got Delia’s Classic Christmas special playing on T.V.  Christmas cooking is taken seriously in the U.K.  Hers and Nigella are my favourite Holiday cooking specials to watch.  It’s been grey and rainy all day.  Today is Saturday, my husband woke at 4:15 am and went fishing at a river 1 hour and 1/2 hours…

Vegan “Sushi” Nourish Bowls

Last week we watched the documentary The Game Changers, a film about  how consuming a plant based diet has helped enhance the performance of elite athletes from the NFL to MMA.  It reminded me how important it is to feed our bodies fuel for optimal health & stamina.  Food that won’t weigh us down but…
