Tofutti + Marinelli Pasta Sauce= Rosé heaven

I have a fondness for noodles. I’m addicted to japchae, ho fun and the ever popular elbow macaroni. I blame years of Kraft Dinner for this. I’ve found a brand of gluten free pasta called Continue reading

2011, Tofutti, El Peto & Lose it!

Oh, the excitement of the impending new year! Are you making a resolution? Perhaps a diet promise? I’ve never made resolutions, I find forced promises don’t really work, it’s more of an all year round commitment.

This year I’m going to eat less soy for sure due to @Mathieu_LF’s intolerance. My only guilty pleasure is Continue reading

Ah, the holidays! Almost Christmas and I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday time with family and loved ones. I know I will be watching my favourite seasonal tv:

Speaking of food, I saw this 21-Day Vegan Kick Start website the other day and signed up. It never hurts to have meal ideas emailed to you. What a helpful website, especially for those who have just started their vegan lifestyle.

Happy New Year to everyone and all the best in 2011!

Guys, be grateful you’re not in the foodchain

Human males are the luckiest out of the animals kingdom. Never once are human males stripped from their mother early on, nor killed for being ‘useless’.

Take the male calf, from birth they are taken away from their mother, put in a pen and fattened up for veal. Imagine doing that to a human baby? Oh, baby, the other white meat – SO tasty, so tender! Ugh.

McDonald Canada’s Nutrition Calculator: What exactly are you eating?

Recently, I’ve been speaking with a friend who is looking to become vegan. I’ve been vegetarian since 2004, so the transition into veganism isn’t all that shocking. However, for someone to go straight from eating meat becoming vegan is a huge lifestyle change. Of course, he has the usual questions: what can I eat and can I even eat at the places I frequent? Most likely, the answer is no.

He was incredibly shocked to discover his favourite Lipton tea has been tested on animals and even the ingredients include more than just tea. One would think tea would be safe; apparently not.

Just for kicks I went onto McDonald’s site and they have a nutrition calculator. I haven’t been on their site for a while, so I don’t know if this is new.

Here are a few screen shots (click the image to enlarge) of the average meals most people eat. Continue reading

Filed under Contest Contest #5: Camino Chocolate Giveaway

Who doesn’t like chocolate? There are so many types and even vegans and Celiacs can find the right one. I’m partial to mint and orange flavours and wouldn’t be upset if a wonderful reader wanted to send me some.

I’m partial to Camino chocolate; that’s not a typo, as of October 18, 2010, Cocoa Camino became Camino. With such a change comes, what else, a packaging change. Oh, the pretty packaging! I’ve tried the new bars, still the same great taste and same amazing commitment offering fair trade organic chocolate.

Such a great and easy way to support fair trade workers – especially with chocolate!

The wonderful people at Camino have been kind enough to offer a give away 3 of their 100g bars. air eater
