The idea of veganizing celebrity cookbook recipes was inspired by the genre of YouTube cookbook review videos. I wasn’t interested in reviewing cookbooks that were already vegan; written by cooks or chefs who were already well established. To show the world that almost any any recipe can be veganized, I decided to look to the cookbooks of those celebrities who seemed least likely to know their way around a kitchen.Read More

This recipe combines two of my favorite things: literature, and vegan alternatives for animal products. Hemingway’s burger is full of unique ingredients, and packed with a flavorful punch that you won’t find in any other burger recipe. Even if you’re not a vegan, or you’ve never picked up a book in your life, this historical recipe is sure to impress.Read More
Cravings rarely present themselves in their whole food form. They normally appear as a deep need for something “crunchy” or “salty” or “cheesy”. For me, chips are the quickest thing to fit that bill, but they are never a good choice when I’m trying to eat healthy.Read More
I pretty sure this website (and my YouTube channel) runs on coffee, but sometimes I like to shake things up a bit. During my Vegan Keto experiment, I decided to try and make a version of Bulletproof Coffee that was a bit more whole-foods based, and without the coffee. The result is this Bulletproof Style Cashew Matcha Latte.Read More
I didn’t invent the zucchini noodle, or the avocado pesto, nor did I come up with the concept of eating a Vegan Keto diet, but I did put the three of those ideas together to create a quick and easy, fresh and creamy, satisfying, and Keto macro friendly dish that is sure to satisfy even the least Vegan of Ketos, and the least Keto of Vegans.Read More
If you’ve been hesitant about trying tofu, this is your gateway dish. I can’t decide if I should call these “tacos” or “wraps” or “flatbread sandwiches” because they are pretty much all-of-the-above, and then some. It all starts out with handmade cornmeal flatbread, piled high with a generous serving of sweet and savory tofu “belly”, topped off with crispy pickled jicama, spicy cherry peppers, and a Pollock-eque drizzle of vibrant cilantro lime cream sauce. Folded or rolled, this taco-wrap-sandwich delivers all the food truck gluttony you crave.
