Review of GGVE Around The World Plus Interview With Allyson Kramer

Whether you are vegan or gluten-free or not everyone that loves ethnic food and experimenting with new ingredients will love Allyson Kramer’s second cookbook Great Gluten-Free Vegan Eats Around the World! I made the Vietnamese Salad Wraps (which I share with a video over at Wellness Reboot) and the Bulgogi-Style Tofu (which you can get on Manifest Vegan). Both were amazing!

Vida Vegan Con blogger conference highlights

“Bringing people together isn’t a luxury, but rather an essential component to our spiritual well-being.” – Russell Simmons This quote pretty much sums up the past weekend for me.

Guest Post: Roasted Walnut & Eggplant Boats

May Cooking By Color – Purple/Blue  Howdy friends! I know it’s been a while since I posted my own recipe, but things have been pretty busy.

Until then enjoy this guest post using eggplant (which I have a love/hate relationship with 😉 Roasted Walnut & Eggplant Boats by Macaroon When I was in the 8th grade, purple was my “signature” color.… Read more
