  1. reubenAccording to Wikipedia, “The Reuben sandwich is a hot sandwich of corned beef, Swiss cheese, with Russian or Thousand Island dressing, and sauerkraut. These are grilled between slices of rye bread.” Well fuck you, Wikipedia*, cause there are vegan Reubens, and our Reubens are better than your Reubens! Here in LA, you can order them all over the place from Follow Your Heart Cafe** to Locali to Native Foods to Flore to Golden Mean to Real Food Daily. But, maybe, just maybe, you live somewhere else?  Somewhere where there doesn’t happen to be a plethora of slammies (slammin’ sammies, a term courtesy the fine folks of Food For Lovers).

    Well here’s how I make ’em– it’s easy, I swear on Wikipedia that you can do it, too:

    1. Make some cashew cheese. My recipe is HERE. Make it ahead of time, like day-ahead cause it it gets better once it’s been fully fridged. Disclaimer: this does not taste even a little bit like Swiss cheese, but it is darned delicious. You will want some in your fridge, always.

    2. Make some One Thousand Island Dressing. Maybe even 1,001. This is simple: get a bowl. In that bowl put: Continue Reading…

  2. According to UK psychologist Cliff Arnall, Monday was the most depressing day of the year. I tend to agree with him. His reasons include soupy weather, holiday debt, and New Year’s resolutions that have failed before February. For me, Monday was the day my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer.

    Before you feel so bad you stop reading, her prognosis (so far) is quite good. They caught it early, and it doesn’t appear to have spread. But I’ve already lost one parent to cancer, and I’m not ready to be Orphan Andy just yet. So I did what I could do: I gave her a copy of Forks Over Knives, dropped a bill or two at Whole Foods, and While You Were Out-ted her kitchen into a vegan one.

    Ordinarily, I would never ever do this. To anyone. Ever. I’m happy to share my beliefs (exhibit A: this blog post), but I have never been a proselytizer, nor have I ever judged anyone else’s eating habits. Actually, that’s not true– I make fun of my boyfriend all the time, but that’s because he exists on a steady diet of jerky, Oreos and soda and he’s not twelve. But I digress. People have to come to these sort of life-changing decisions for themselves, or else they won’t stick. But I know my Barbara (your mom’s name is Barbara, too?) and sometimes she needs help to get going (exhibit 1: she’s been on Nutri-System for years). I should also note that she has always been super supportive of me and my eating habits, loves her veggies, and has expressed interest in becoming a vegetarian before, so it wasn’t 100% crazy, only 97%. That’s a percentage I can work with.

    So, if you or someone you know needs a vegan starter-kit, here’s what I got:

  3. Remember that time that I went to Georgetown Cupcake and it was a sweet-smelling version of a war-torn Escape From LA? If you follow us on Instagramz, then you know I gave them a second chance– I’m big like that when it comes to dessert. I’m happy to report that it was great (though I didn’t use the facilities or try to order iced tea)!

    They now have 3 (that’s 1, 2, 3!) vegan flavors; Vegan Apple Cinnamon (M,TR, S), Vegan Cranberry Spice (T,F), and Vegan Carrot (W, SU), and a handy-dandy chart that can lead you to your favorite. I’ve tried two of the three flavors (my feelings on dessert made from vegetables are well known, so no W or Su for me, thanks) and they’re both delicious…though I’ve also made a request for another option that’s more chocolate, or caramel, or vanilla.

    To convince YOU to give them a chance, the very kind folks of Georgetown Cupcake are giving away a gift card valued at one dozen fairy cakes (that’s what they call them in England, also that’s $29!) to one lucky SuperVegan Angeleno! THAT COULD BE YOU (if you live in Los Angeles)!

    All you have to do is leave a comment (make sure you provide your e-mail address!) answering this question (in the form of a question, for extra points): Which would you rather have, a dozen flu shots, or a dozen vegan cupcakes?

    There is but one restriction: YOU MUST LIVE IN L.A.

    Winner will be chosen Monday (1/21) at high noon.
