rookiemag Celebrity culture has given us so many awful things—too many to name, and everyone has named them already—but there’s also a positive side to famous-people worship. Sometimes, when you need life inspiration, the most accessible examples are, paradoxically, the most distant and inaccessible human beings. The stars are so far away that they look perfect, twinkly, unflawed. We can use this! Courtney Love By Stephanie I discovered her in seventh grade, at a sleepover at the house of a friend with a cool older cousin who was always exposing us to the best music, like David Bowie and Nine Inch Nails. I remember seeing her on the cover of Sassy kissing the cheek of my other recently discovered idol, Kurt Cobain, and thinking how lucky she was. Two years later, when he killed himself, she comforted me. I saw her live for the first time less than six months after Kurt died. My boyfriend and I watched her on MTV Unplugged. I wrote my own poetry while I listened. “What is it?”
Green Powerhouse Pesto Plate After fretting over a recipe to make for St. Patrick’s Day and then having a few gluten-free/vegan cakes crash and burn, Eric suggested that I switch things up and make pesto. It’s green, right? I’ve had a few requests to show you some of the meals I’m eating while on the allergy elimination diet. This isn’t actually “pesto” per say since it’s nut-free, but it’s close enough.

quinoa basil bean burgers with basil aioli Big thank yous to all of the sweet messages about Missy – it was a sad night, and today all I want to do is sit and hug Basil. We just returned from a long walk in the sunshine, and I’m about to get a late start to my workday. I wanted to finish up this post that I wasn’t able to complete last night. Just had to get my extra Basil time in – last night and today. This is the other basil in my life – fresh basil from the garden just cannot be beat.

melodyfairitale | ☆Strange teenage vegan☆ Vegan Port Wine Cheese The first time I tried roasted red pepper hummus, I had to keep rechecking the package ingredients to make sure it didn't have any actual dairy or whey in it, because it just tasted so cheesy to me. Since then, I've used roasted red peppers and raw cashews (because of its neutral taste and high fat content) to replicate this flavor in things like this dish, and this one, as well as a coating for kale chips—simply because it tastes so rich and complex. Here I've incorporated that same concept into a port wine cheese ball. This mixture is packed with quinoa and raw tahini for bulk, an array of nuts for texture, and a splash of port wine to give it a depth of flavor and a little boozy kick. Place the raw cashews into a food processor and grind into a fine powder. Place in the freezer for about an hour to allow the mixture to slightly firm up so you can form it into two large cheese balls or several small cheese balls.
Vegans Are So Judgmental! by Bea Elliot : On Nonhuman Slavery “Vegans are so judgmental!” Is that so? Aren’t those of you who eat meat really the ones who “judge”? You judge it acceptable to confine animals to tiny crates and warehouses for their entire lives so that you might pay a few pennies less in the checkout line. Still, we’re told over and over again: it’s the vegans who are judgmental. But the way I see it, as a vegan, I’m not deciding who lives or dies just so I can have a leather couch or a woolen scarf or an ice cream cone. No, as a non-vegan, you’re the “judge” of all that. Vegans aren’t the ones putting animals on the earth only to judge how they should be used and when/how/why they should be killed. (freepik photo credit) Did you like this?

דיאטת השלום העולמי | תרגום ספרו של דר. וויל טאטל Vegan Salad in a Jar. Make-Ahead Bliss Salad. In a jar. I totally get this one. A while back (and maybe still) there was a spirited "foods in a jar" trend hovering around the food blogs. ..But salad in a jar? The Daily Muse's post "The Best New Way to Bring Your Lunch" introduced me to the "Mason Jar Salad" concept. And as I showed in my Vegan Cobb Salad, I love lining salad ingredients up in an orderly fashion. ..actually, doing a "vegan cobb in a jar" would be pretty fantastic. Fresh Factor? "The best part is you can make five salads at a time, and they’ll stay fresh for the whole week—just grab and go on your way out the door! ..considering my crazy book writing schedule lately, the part that really stuck out was the "make ahead" concept. Well just so you know, it hasn't been a week yet. But as of now these salads look and taste AMAZING. Here are the four jars I assembled. Layering Salad Jars: Other: grains and pasta are nice add ins. There are no exact "rules" and that is the fun part. My recipes...
