“May our hearts overcome our appetites” – Unknown

Peace begins on our plate. Why fill our bodies with suffering and death when we can fuel them with the endless healing plant foods nature provides for us right from the earth? There’s a reason plant foods are so beautiful in their natural state. Although veganism is not a diet but a social justice movement, the plant-based diet is the ONLY diet scientifically proven to prevent, treat, and in many cases reverse, heart disease and the other top 15 killer diseases in the US.

My go-to pancake recipe is the Puffy Pillow Pancakes from PPK. But every now and then I like to mix up the flavors. With left over canned pumpkin, I mixed it in the batter along with traditional pumpkin pie spice. You may need to add a touch more flour if the pumpkin made the batter […]

Let me preface first with that I’m the furthest thing from a mushroom person. I pick them out of everything, I just can’t handle the texture. My friend Mary of Nom Yourself insisted she could make a portobello steak that even I could make. We never got around to that challenge so I took it […]
