I love “The Starch Solution”–VIDEO

Dr. McDougall does it again! I’ve absolutely adored McDougall’s dietary advice. Using it, I’ve been drug-free for over nine years! I used to have more health problems wrong with me than I can even remember now. It’s truly been a miracle, and I swear to the world that it saved my life–literally. Yet…I’ve still had […]

Margarine is NOT necessarily vegan

As a vegan, I’m often told, “I used margarine to make this, so it’s vegan,” in reference to certain bakery items friends make. While I always appreciate the gesture, I don’t always eat it. I only eat the items if the person used vegan margarine. How is margarine not vegan?  Several scary ways: The government […]

Increasing Nutrition

Since becoming a vegan over six years ago, I’ve been highly enjoying a more alert life. I recently had a physical and while I’m healthy, I’ve decided it’s time to step it up a notch.  While I’ve learned to strongly dislike counting calories, I’ve been journaling my food intake for over a month now, looking […]

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 Biscuits and Gravy

When I was a kid, I couldn’t stand biscuits and gravy.  My parents thought it was a real treat and raved about it on the rare occasions we had it (usually at a restaurant).  Since I’ve never liked it, I was surprised when I decided to make it a few days ago.  It started when […]

Thanksgiving Made Vegan
