  1. Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale Time!

    Filed under: Activism Events Food

    It’s the most wonderful time of the year: Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale time! Over 100 vegan bake sales will be held globally from April 20-28, 2013.

    There are quite a few bake sales scheduled in NYC that week, including one on April 28, hosted by the always wonderful folks at MooShoes. The sale will raise money for Food Not Bombs NYC, who recover and share free vegan food with the public without restriction every Sunday in Tompkins Square Park to protest war, poverty and the destruction of the environment.

    Delicious goodies await

    MooShoes will be full of all things yummy as well as information on how you can get involved with FNB.

    Bakers and volunteers are still needed for this event, so please sign up!

    And don’t forget to bring a bag or container to take your purchases home in (or a utensil to eat with there) to cut back on waste!

  4. I'm eating something delicious!

    I’m eating something delicious!

    A few years ago, after a series of mysterious and serious illnesses, a new doctor tested me for food allergies and discovered that I have many, including but not limited to: dairy, gluten, corn and sugar. Once I had eliminated the culprits from my diet, I felt much better, but was also exhausted by all the cooking I had to for myself. I had heard the legend of the Natural Products Expo West told to me for the last few years. A multi-day convention that is the Mecca for all things natural, including home-goods, beauty products, clothing and most importantly for this little alternative eater…food! After spending two full, exhausting days tasting, sampling, and feasting and two more days recovering and day dreaming about what I had devoured, I can say the Expo lived up to the hype. This expo proved that there are thoughtful, inspired food companies out there in America (and also Canada) who are attempting to make my limited diet easier and more delicious. Before I go for a run to burn off some convention calories I will share with you, in no particular order, my favorite gluten-free/ vegan eats.

    I’m not so sure why I am bothering to write so many words in a row about what I ate/saw/heard/smelled at the Natural Products Expo West this year, seeing as it seemed to me that all of you were there, too. Snapping Instapix and live-blogging your way down aisles 100-6500 (there were that many aisles this year!) like my friend The Insufferable Vegan. But, for the seven to ten of you that were stuck at home cause of your baby/snow/flu I’m gonna break it down so it’ll feel like you were there, also too.

    Imagine the airport the day before Thanksgiving. A big airport like JFK or O’Hare. Instead of gates there are booths and instead of travelers trying to make their way home so they can binge eat in private, there are vegans trying to grab free samples, take pictures of said samples, and Instagram that picture while eating and walking to the next booth. Now spend an entire day or two or three eating something sweet then something salty then something sweet then something spicy then something gross then a beverage that is probably tea/coconut/chia/chunky/vitamin’d. Surround yourself with chips or chip like things made out of everything from peas to potatoes, chocolate, ice cream, meatless technologies, robo-cheese (do you like that term for vegan cheese? I just coined it.) and a lot of a lot of a lot of things.

    Here are my top however many things I learned tasted or took away from NPEW ’13 in iTunes shuffle-style order:
