By Lauren, on April 3rd, 2012 Rice pudding – to me – is a dessert that transcends seasonality. Whether you cozy up to a steaming bowl of the comforting dessert on a blustery winter evening or relax with a dish of the chilled treat on a sweltering summer afternoon, rice pudding is a delicious indulgence. Here I offer you a vegan version that is fantastic served either warm or cold!
There is an endless amount of vegetarian protein sources, yet "Where do you get your protein from?" is perhaps the most common question vegans and raw vegans get asked. First of all let's look at how much protein carcass eaters actually get. Ground beef is is around 24% protein, chicken breast is roughly 35% protein and pork is somewhere around 27% (depends on the cut and diet of the animal). The rest of the percentages in these foods is by and large saturated fat, which has been well established to be hazardous to your health when it comes from animal sources. At the bottom of the food chain, all animals eat vegetarian protein sources to build their flesh.
Yesterday it rained! It was not the gross sticky hot kind of rain, it was real awesome cold rain . I took Max outside and he jumped around in puddles and absolutely loved it! It finally feels like fall to me. I just realized, as I looked around my house that I don't have one single fall decoration up..not even a string of leaves or a decorative pumpkin.
Hi all! It’s been busy around here lately at UWEA plaza (that is, my life), but I had to make sure to find some extra time today to quickly share this amazing new hummus recipe I recently came up with: Sunchoke Hummus! (If you don’t already know about the wonders that are sunchokes/Jerusalem artichokes, you’ll probably want to check out my previous post about Sunchoke Soup for a refresher .) Now I have to admit, I can’t actually take all the credit for this amazing new recipe. In fact, it all started when I (like any obsessive-compulsive blogger) was checking out my blog stats and looking at the search engine terms people had used to reach my blog. One user got here by searching “sunchoke hummus”— but before this post was ever written .
Here I am with another hummus recipe. We have been doing a lot of entertaining on the terrace, trying to squeeze the most of having such a great outdoor space in NYC before the weather forces us inside. When making dinner for guests two to three times a week, I've found one of the easiest appetizers to throw together is hummus. What's been really fun is experimenting with flavors and adding different ingredients.
I’m officially hooked on vegan ice cream. Who knew that a non-dairy treat could be so rich, creamy, and satisfying? Well, I guess Wheeler Del Toro did – and I am forever indebted to him for introducing me to a lower-calorie & lower-fat version of a classic dessert.
