Going Lowfat Naturally (Plus Vegan Brownie Recipe)

I’ve been inspired to eat a 100% McDougall friendly vegan diet again.  For the past month, I’ve kept my total fat grams to 10 or less a day.  I’ve added no fat to my foods (such as vegan butter, etc.), but have allowed for small quantities of naturally occurring higher fat foods, such as nuts […]

RECIPE: Vegan Cream Cheese Wedding Mints

Our Girl Scout troop recently had a Talent Show.  My oldest daughter’s talent was cooking.  Since each act could only be 5 minutes (or less) long, she had a difficult time deciding what to cook.  She finally decided on wedding mints (which could be shown in stages).  They are relatively simple to make, easy to […]

Zoë’s Vegan Kit- Kat Recipe: 2/3 box natural sugar wafers (found in health food sections of stores) 3 1/2 […]

Thanksgiving Made Vegan

With the U.S. holiday of Thanksgiving Day less than a week away, I’m finalizing my family’s meal.  For the past five or so years we’ve either gone to a vegan potluck or out to Lovin’ Spoonfuls for their vegan Thanksgiving meal (which we highly recommend).  This year, with a super busy schedule the last few […]
