Vegan Eats in Providence, Rhode Island

If I’m being honest, as much as I love cooking, I also love to eat out. It’s a bad habit, because it’s expensive, but there are some days when I just don’t want to cook or do the dishes or… anything, really. Luckily (or maybe unluckily, for my budget), there are tons of vegan restaurants in…

Product Review: Beyond Meat Beyond Burger

I feel as though I’ve been hearing about the Beyond Burger for eons. Developed by Beyond Meat, a company that’s arguably changed the whole damn game when it comes to vegan meat substitutes, the Beyond Burger is meant to simulate ground beef hamburger patties as close as possible. This product finally made its way onto the local…

Recipe Post: Vegan Ricotta Pie

Weeks ago, Reed mentioned that it would be cool if we could figure out how to veganize ricotta pie, an Italian dessert Reed remembers really fondly from their adolescent years. I said we could probably try it, though I was hesitant because the tofu ricotta recipe we use is pretty decidedly savory. Then we discovered…

Product Review: Three Girls Vegan Mini Aged Cashew Cheese Wheels

I know I’ve been raving a lot about Three Girls Vegan Creamery, but I can’t help it! Every time we try one of their products, I’m blown away by how tasty it is. We recently placed an order (for Valentine’s Day dessert!) and got some samples of other products in the box, which was wonderful. Cheese…

Recipe Post: Buffalo Cauliflower Flatbread with Vegan Mozzarella

I love spicy food. I once ordered a veggie burger at a restaurant that was piled high with jalapenos, roasted peppers and a mango habanero hot sauce that was so hot I actually cried through the entire meal. It remains, to this day, one of the best things I’ve ever eaten. When we go to…

Product Review: Three Girls Vegan Creamery cheeses

Although my fiancé and I are always down to try new foods, we’re wary when it comes to vegan cheese. We have our faves and we generally stick to them, partially because we don’t want to splurge on a brand or cheese variety that we might not like (which would be a waste of money…

It’s Veganuary! Here are some secret weapons

We’re two days into Veganuary 2017 and I’ve received messages from even more friends who are taking the plant-based diet plunge! HELL YES! I’m so excited that so many people are interested in veganism and I can’t wait to see how many of you stick with it once Justin Timberlake’s birthday has passed! I suspect it…

Countdown to Veganuary: Survive and thrive

I’m coming up on my two-year veganversary, which is really exciting! Going plant-based has improved my life in a myriad of ways. I save a ton of money on groceries since I don’t buy animal products or byproducts, and even though the vegan takeout options in Providence are numerous, I don’t eat out nearly as often as…

Product Review: Trader Joe’s Vegan Dressing & Spread

Everyone tells me, on a regular basis, how gross they find mayonnaise. I understand the opinion: mayonnaise is basically egg whites and oil. It has a distinctly vinegary flavor that’s honestly kind of unpleasant. But I grew up dipping my french fries in it and slopping it on sub sandwiches, so it’s a condiment I…

Vegan Cheese: A Definitive List

The last animal product my fiance and I gave up when we decided to go vegan was cheese. We’d been using non-dairy milk and vegan butter for months, but we stubbornly clung to cheese because 1) we loved it and 2) I wasn’t a great cook, but I knew that if I slapped cheese on…
