Jillian Harris Vegan Burgers

What would summer be without burgers?! I mean c’mon, there’s nothing like enjoying a burger and a brewski on a hot summer day, am I right?! Right!!! However, one struggle that I’ve found being plant-based is finding a veggie burger that is super indulgent AND also tastes great! So we decided to taste test 5 different vegan patties to see …

Jillian Harris Vegan BLT

If I had to name one sandwich I miss the most it would have to be a BLT. Bacon … lettuce and tomato. This used to be one of my favourite lunchtime staples and ever since I made the transition to a more plant-based diet I’ve struggled to create the perfect vegan BLT. Well … guess what, ladies and gents?! …

Mom LOVES Chinese food and we almost always without fail go down to Dragon King for heaps and piles of fried animal with a bunch of sauce. Even though I’ve become plant based in the last 2 years I usually still go, order the veggies dishes and …

Growing up in a Ukrainian family, borscht was ALWAYS on the menu…yet somehow I haven’t learned how to make it until now!?  Now, our granny has always been ahead of the curve.  Chickpea brownies?  She was all over it years ago, long before it was hip.  Vegan borscht: yeah, she had that covered too A couple of tips: she used …

In an effort to live more plant-based and doing so while living with a partner who isn’t, there are some challenges when preparing meals and stocking the house with staples. One of our “pre-plant-based” favourite meals was BBLTS (bacon, basil, lettuce, tomato). Now that I have reduced my meat consumption I wanted to come up with a way to still enjoy …
