Review | The Colorful Family Table

Image contains a variety of colourful food on a white table, including a roasted orange squash with macaroni, blue cabbage, a couple salads, and more. To the left of the centre of the page, there is pink text that sys “seasonal plant-based recipes for the whole family”. In the bottom of the image, there is a frosted white circle with the words "The Colorful Family Table Ilene Godofsky Moreno Author of The Colorful Kitchen" in various colours.

WAIW | Fake News From the Left?

Image contains a photo of two dogs being walked. One dog is all black and the other is a dark yellow. The two dogs are on leashes, which can be seen coming from the bottom of the screen toward the dogs. In the background, there is a small road, blue sky, and trees and bushes.

Whether you're on the right or the left, sharing content without critically viewing it is a dangerous habit to get into. Given what we're fighting for, it's something we all have to try and stop. Read More »

Image is a photo of a Saigon street with numerous scooters coming towards the camera. Shops are visible on both sides of the street, and a small neon sign in the top left-hand corner says "Quán Chay Giác Tha".

One vegetarian (chay) restaurant on a street is a reason to get excited in many cities. In Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City), Vietnam? Not so much. Around these parts, it takes more than one chay spot to make a street stand out. Read More »

WAIW | Health Concerns

Image contains vertical wood panelling with a number of darker brown knots scattered throughout each panel.

Even though I've been fighting against it for years, it seems far too many people still think it's justified to fat shame in the vegan community (and the world in general). So, in today's WAIW episode, I thought I should suggest other causes they could focus their time and energy on. Read More »

Review: My New Roots

Cover for My New Roots by Sarah Britton

Labels can be tricky things, and "vegan" certainly falls into that category. Of course, when you mix in things like "plant-based" and "whole foods", there's bound to be miscommunication.
