5 reasons why Going Vegan is easier, and more needed, than ever.

In 2010, going vegan was still considered somewhat odd, extreme and unhealthy. Fast forward 6 years and things have definitely changed. Over the past 6 years, I've seen a movement that was thought to be for "hippies", that I was somewhat ostrasized for, to being quasi-mainstream. These are some reasons why:

Sloppy Joe Bowl

Being gluten free can sometimes be achallenge, especially when you're looking for bread that has the right taste, texture and holds up to being used in various ways. Although I've found that looking for local bakeries that make vegan and gluten free bread is the best route to go, sometimes it's just easier to go without and create dishes we love without the bun. Not to mention easier on the waller since it's still a specialty product and my usual loaf is about 7 dollars.

Simply Delish Soup and Salad Co. Review

I met the lovely gentlemen that owns and operates SImply Delish Soup and Salad Co with his wife at my local farmer's market here in New Westminster where I had a stall advertizing the Secret Dinner Club. He was so nice and talked to me about how his products were all transitionning to being plant-based and gluten free, that by the end of the summer, he'd be 100% transitionned. This is defnitely something that is great to hear!

Baked Onion Rings - They're Fat-Free!

I've cracked it! First with my Hot Cauliflower Wings, now with these onions rings. A batter that requires zero oils or fats to crisp up beautifly in a hot oven. I have many many plans for this. Most definitely will be serving variations of these to people would join our secret dinner parties (more info coming soon, but you can sign up for the mailing list here.)

Sweet Potato Shepherd's Pie

Spring is definitely in the air now, at least here in Vancouver it is! All the flowers are blooming and the air and sun are warm during the day and satisfyingly chilly at night. This means that casseroles and hearty dishes like this Sweet Potato Shepherd's Pie are still very very welcome in the cool evenings. This dish is a delightful twist on the classic I grew up eating. Although it had very different ingredients, this still reminds me of evening with my family as a kid.
