Jackfruit as a tasty meat alternative

Or “How to make chicken tacos without the chicken”… Wait. What!? That’s exactly what I thought about a year ago when I was introduced to a new food that totally blew my meat-loving mind. During an event at my college last year, I heard a girl was making some delicious tacos and was using some kind […]

Vegan cookies for the holidays

More adventures with aquafaba. I realize cookies aren’t exactly something a nutrition expert should be celebrating, but I love cookies.  I’d bake them everyday if there was someone else to eat them up.  Lacking that, I wait until December to start baking a revolving repertoire of Christmas cookies.  I’ve got old favorites, but always feel […]
