Hello everyone! This is my favorite time of year. The air is getting colder. the leaves are getting crunchier. And (best of all) the food is getting heartier. As we head into the holidays, I am faced with the always uncomfortable reality of being the only vegan at the table. I don’t want to bring a […]

I love the Fall. Crisp red leaves crunching beneath my knee-high black boots. Steaming mugs of dark chocolate cocoa  between mittened hands. The sliver of a crescent moon breaking through stark white clouds on Halloween night. There’s just something magical about it all. But one of the absolute biggest reasons I love this season so much […]

Fun fact: breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. My husband is the opposite and thinks of breakfast more as a requirement than as a delicious abundance of goodness and flavor! I MUST have breakfast as my first meal, even if I wake up exceptionally late. If I sleep until noon (not common, but […]

Thanksgiving in Canada is at the beginning of October. Which is great because that means our holiday season starts sooner, and dinner doesn’t interrupt football! This was my first holiday meal as a vegetarian and I was excited and a little worried. What’s on most people’s plates for thanksgiving dinner? Turkey and ham…and sometimes the […]

I have a secret: I was born into a family of meat eaters. As a child, animal products practically made up the entire base of my food pyramid. Growing up, we joked that loving cheese was a prerequisite to being in the Hunt family. But once I became a vegetarian, my family members happily made accommodations for my […]

If you’re going vegan or vegetarian for the first time, you may be thinking you’re going to be terribly bored. You might imagine a bunch of plain salads, simple pastas, or fake meats like veggie burgers and soy hot dogs. You’re not wrong to worry. According to most media, vegans eat cardboard and soy everything. […]

Plant based diets, such as Vegetarian or Vegan, are the subject of constant debate. Are they healthy or will they lead you to an early grave? On November 13th, 2015 I was an omnivore. Around 11:00 a.m on November 14th, 2016, I was a Vegan. I didn’t have a transition period, but I also wouldn’t […]

If you haven’t yet read my post on animal agriculture, please do before continuing here: Environmental Impact of Animal Agriculture. This brings me back to a very interesting conversation I had with a great friend of mine about whether or not a vegan diet is more sustainable than a omnivorous diet. I am, as you […]

You may remember that I became Vegan after watching the film Cowspiracy, which illuminates the horrific impact that the farmed animal industry has on the environment. This is a fact which has been largely hidden and denied until, at least to my knowledge, very recently. Water is being wasted in unbelievable quantities, rainforests are being […]

I had brunch today with one of my best friends. It was a very interesting brunch, for many reasons. For one, it was the first time I had eaten food that wasn’t prepared at home since becoming Vegan. As you can imagine, I’m sure, one of the things I had prepared myself for as a […]
