Review: My Experience with Purple Carrot
I recently had the opportunity to review the Purple Carrot plant-based meal delivery service! For many vegans. new and old, coming up with new recipes and interesting meal ideas can feel like hard work. After a long day, I just don’t always have the energy to do much more than roast whatever is in the fridge and put it on quinoa. Here’s where Purple Carrot comes in. All of the recipes (I tried 3) came out fantastic. I was worried that things might be bland but everything was well seasoned and each was something I’d never attempted (and probably never would have attempted) making before. This video covers the Korean…
‘Italian’ Vegan Pasta Salad
I love carbs. LOVE THEM. When I decided to become vegan and realized I could quit my near 20-year pasta and bread embargo I was overjoyed. I mean, the animals get to live and now I do too.

And it can be enjoyed hot or cold in both reasonable and ridiculously large quantities. Feel free to switch up the ingredients and spices to put your own spin on it. I call this version ‘Italian’ because that’s where I took most…

But, that is exactly what happened. In the past, green smoothies always made me feel like I was choking down grass clippings. And I’m not going to lie. This smoothie does look like a glass full of thick, vibrant grass remnants but the actual taste is amazing. The sweetness of the pineapple, normally a bit overpowering, is tempered by the herbaceous kale while a hint of mango…
Watermelon Cherry Blast
This is a riff off the Watermelon Lime Cooler recipe that ratchets up the healthy quotient (with help from a secret ingredient) on this refreshing summer treat. Everyone already knows that watermelon is good for you. But did you know that dark cherries aka ‘America’s Superfruit’ and celery (a bonafide nutritional powerhouse) are great for you, too? The Darker the Berry… Like most jewel-toned berries (blueberries, anyone?) dark cherries are brimming with antioxidants. One cup of cherries contains 90 calories and contains significant amounts of fiber, protein, and vitamin A and C, according to the United States Department of Agriculture . Cherries also have anti-inflammatory properties, making them beneficial for arthritis sufferings, melatonin,…
