The Best Vegan Avocado Toast

There’s a reason why millenials love avocado toast… it’s easy, healthy, and delicious!

This version drizzled with lemon juice and coconut oil, and topped with sea salt, hemp seeds, and crushed red pepper is the one I always make. It’s loaded with healthy fats and fiber, but not overly filling, making it the perfect light meal to have in the morning, or to enjoy as an afternoon snack.

Natural Cleaning Products

This may sound strange, but I love cleaning. There’s something about it that’s just very therapeutic and calming to me. It’s often said that our physical surroundings are a reflection of our inner state of mind, and I know that when I’ve properly cleaned and organized my living space, I always feel more mentally alert and on top of things.

Part of the reason that I enjoy cleaning so much is that I get to …

Vegan Mac & “Cheese”

Is there anything more comforting than a bowl of homemade mac and cheese? I thinkest not. There are tons of vegan mac and cheese recipes out there, but I have been refining my own version over the years. The creaminess of the cashews, the cheddary-ness of the nutritional yeast, and the tartness of lemon or lime juice create a very cheesy taste and texture. I normally use chickpea shells instead of macaroni, as I personally …

Potato Rounds

Grounding, filling, earthy, comforting… these are some of the words that come to mind when I think about potatoes. In my opinion, these’s no better snack or (really) lazy dinner than some baked potato slices.

Like most others, I had been raised thinking that potatoes were empty, fattening calories. However, when I began trying intuitive eating a few years ago, I started to sense that they weren’t as bad as they had been made out …

Must-Watch Documentaries + Vegan Popcorn Recipe

I first got into watching documentaries as a senior in college, when I was taking a course on independent films. Every week our class would watch “indie films,” films outside the major film studio system that are either quirky, gritty, or deal with fringe topics that don’t normally get coverage in the mainstream media. As part of our course, we went to the Sundance Film Festival in Utah for 10 days. This was a very …

Vegan Fettuccine Alfredo

This delicious vegan fettuccine alfredo is my go-to meal when I’m cooking for a group of people. Not only is it super easy to make, but even picky eaters and skeptics of vegan food love it. Everyone is usually surprised that there’s no cheese in it, since the nutritional yeast and cashews create a convincingly cheesy taste and texture. I usually add kale, because kale goes great with the sauce, but you can sub with …

Notice these four pairings of natural and industrial images below. How do the natural images make you feel? What about the industrial ones? Do you perceive any differences in the energy emitted by the photographs? Which ones seem to have a higher energetic vibration, and which lower?

Our planet is amazingly beautiful.

A Vegan’s Take On Fishing

“Is it really a sport if you have all the equipment and your opponent doesn’t know a game is going on?” – Bill Maher

In our society, fishing is seen as a fun, wholesome, and peaceful past-time that can be the perfect way to unwind by ourselves or bond with friends and family. As with our other “rituals of dominion,” (author Jim Mason’s terms for the recreational activities in which we express our domination over …

Exercise Tips

Experts are now saying that most important factors in preventative medicine are nutrition, quality relationships, and exercise. However, the majority of Americans don’t eat healthily nor do they exercise. The fact that most of us are following the Standard American Diet (SAD) and not exercising goes a long way towards explaining why our healthcare system is broken and why we spend billions of dollars on pharmaceutical drugs every year.

Despite their habits, I believe that …
