iEG Crush: COGO Coconut Milk Smoothies

IMG_7286

Of all the non-dairy milks, coconut milk may be the most controversial because of its distinctive taste. Personally, I’m pro-coconut milk, so I could not have been more excited to try Soyummi’s new line of COGO coconut milk smoothies. I recommend these smoothies to both coconut milk lovers and haters because the lovers will be in creamy coconut heaven after the first sip, while haters may find themselves won over to the coconut camp.

Foodie Tuesday: Your Guide to Holiday Parties

Food, food everywhere, but not a bite to eat!

While many use holiday parties as the perfect excuse to pig out, for vegans, it can mean a long night of starvation. When you’re hosting your own party, you can make sure that the menu is full of food that will please both vegans and omnivores, but when you go to a friend’s party, you’re at the mercy of their eating habits. Although many hostesses put out a veggie and hummus plate, that probably won’t be enough to sustain you throughout the night, especially if you’re getting into the holiday spirits. (Let’s give thanks that alcohol is almost always vegan.) Still, there are a few things you can do to ensure you won’t go hungry during the holiday season. Continue reading

Foodie Tuesday: Move Over Tofurky

IMG_7199

When I was younger, I used to eat as little Thanksgiving turkey as I could get away with. Even when I was given the smallest piece of turkey, I still employed sophisticated strategies to avoid eating it (i.e. pushing the pieces around my plate). Since I never really liked turkey, I’m not a huge fan of Tofurkey either.

The highlight of Thanksgiving, for me, has always been the sides. From infancy, I adored stuffing and mashed potatoes. Even though I can eat solid foods with ease now, I still choose not to. This year, I’ll also be celebrating Thanks-giv-ukkah (that’s Thanksgiving and Hanukkah combined), so I decided to make one my favorite Hanukkah sides, potato latkes, with a sweet twist. I got a little carb crazy with these sides, but if you’re not eating carbs on Thanksgiving, then what exactly are you doing with your life? Continue reading
