I have been very occupied with recent Tennessee political events so I have not had to focus on blogging or what I eat really. I actually dropped a lot of weight quickly, not purposely, because my nerves have kept me from having an appetite, but it's returned! And I am still purposely losing weight but... Continue Reading →
When not being strictly vegan makes sense
I am going to share a couple of examples where I wasn't strictly vegan these past few weeks. I am sharing this not for other vegans but for those who would like to eat less animal products but perhaps don't because they feel it's too much to be strictly vegan. I think sometimes vegans, even... Continue Reading →
Finally we got a cap on insulin prices from a drug company!
Being from Tennessee, my senators are Marsha Blackburn and some guy with the last name Haggerty. Bill maybe? I don't know. He votes no differently than Marsha but he tends to stay in the background more, doesn't make embarrassing spectacles of himself, which is possibly more sinister. Anyway, both Haggerty and Blackburn voted against capping... Continue Reading →
Boycotts, cruelty in probably ALL our food, and just a vent
So very recently it was discovered that a Cheerios factory had minors as young as 13 working there. One employee was a fifteen year child who was working past midnight. I actually contacted General Mills about this, and they gave some wishy washy response that they didn't know that was happening and they don't support... Continue Reading →
Overnight Oats: portable and nutrient-dense
A new thing I'm doing is making my husband overnight oats to take to work when he doesn't work from home. (To be fair, I just started doing this yesterday.)Yes, overnight oats have been a thing for years now, and we've done them in the past, but we hadn't done them lately. However, I am...

Being balanced is more important than purity/improved health results
My husband went to the doctor to get a physical yesterday and good news, everything is a-okay! There's a lot of just straight-up lies that come from both sides if we are talking about non-vegans and vegans. On the non-vegan side, there are claims that one can't absorb plants, can't get enough protein, soy is... Continue Reading →
High protein, palm-free, vegan ramen at Aldi!
We went to Aldi today and I wasn't really planning on getting much. It was actually my husband's idea to get the kid out of the house. But I'm glad we did because we found a bunch of goodies! My favorite find was this Chef Woo plant-based ramen with 20 grams of protein per cup.... Continue Reading →
Whole Wheat Rolls
Thought I'd share this whole wheat roll recipe: First make a sponge: 1 cup warm water (~110F) 1 cup whole wheat flour 1.5 tsp. yeast Whisk together and let sit for 15-20 minutes or until bubbly. (If it never gets bubbly, your yeast is dead. I keep mine in the fridge and it has lasted... Continue Reading →
Dinner tonight: homemade WW rolls & two happen-to-be vegan pre-made soups combined. And what was up with Sandra Lee?
Any of you 90s kids ever watch Food Network growing up? Do you remember Sandra Lee's Semi-Homemade? Even as a non-adult I thought she was funny to watch. The concept was sprucing up pre-made convenience items. I recall it adding extra vanilla extract to already vanilla flavored things a lot of the time. I imagine... Continue Reading →
Linda’s weight loss story and how meal replacements can help (TW: WL, EDs)
https://www.pbs.org/video/lindas-weight-loss-journey-part-1-life-weight-loss-vsx8wm/ In search for something to watch while I did my elliptical that wasn't politics (I'm trying to sane and not fall into a deep depression.), I found this on the PBS app on our TV. This little series is about Linda, who lost all three of her brothers to a rare condition called chronic... Continue Reading →
