Vegan Chick’n Nuggets…Air-Fried!!

We had a fabulous weekend here at Sideways Cottage with a couple of new WFPB friends–Chazz and Frances. We spent all weekend eating super delicious plant-based food made by Jamie and chatting away like we’d known each other all our lives. Until they arrived, James had been calling Chazz and Frances my “imaginary friends” because […]

Lemony Panko-Crusted Tofu

My dad had a medical procedure last Thursday, so I’ve been in Vancouver for the past week. And, while I brought several big jars of soup, a jar of hummus, and tons of fruits and vegetables, I did end up eating quite a few meals out…most of which included some dairy, extracted oil, and white […]

Turmeric-Ginger Shots and Beet Kvass

I’ve been drinking turmeric-ginger tea for ages, but someone on one of my WFPB (whole-food, plant-based) groups recently mentioned doing daily turmeric-ginger shots. I thought I’d give it a try because my tea is more of an infusion of the grated roots and with the shots, you’re drinking the root pulverized in a high-speed blender. […]

Hacking the Plant-Based Diet

The best advice for anyone who wants to eat a plant-based diet is, first, that the food should be good…like, REALLY good, and, second, the food should be┬áthere. Indeed, the food has to be SO good and SO convenient, that when you’re tempted to eat some crappy take-out food, you can instead think, “Nah–I’ve got […]

The Least You Can Do….

I had an epiphany about exercise recently. Back in my forties, when I was running marathons and going to the gym every day, I was always challenging myself to run farther, lift more, do more reps, you name it. It was, I suppose, a way to stay motivated. And my various physical pursuits were not […]

Savoury Portobello-Jackfruit Pie

Now that we’ve perfected the jackfruit barbecue, James and I have been dying to shake up our jackfruit game and experiment with other applications. As it turns out, I just happened to have a recipe for a boeuf bourguignon that uses faux boeuf tips. I decided to replace the fake meat with jackfruit and bake […]

A July of Whole-Food, Plant-Based Feasts!

July was a month packed full of visitors and, while we don’t usually impose vegan food on our omnivore guests, we usually end up with many vegan meals simply because that’s the way I cook most of the time now. And, of course, even if a meal isn’t vegan, it’s always vegetarian because neither of […]

Vegan Charcuterie and a Summer Vegan Pizza

My darling Em has been up at the cabin for the past couple of days, and I was delighted to make her some of my latest vegan food discoveries (and she was delighted to eat them!). She loved the two-ingredient quinoa bread I’ve been making–especially topped with a smear of smoky paprika sauce and sliced […]
