It’s easier than you think to find vegan versions of your favourite food, but some are better than others. Don’t get discouraged if it’s not right yet. My own vegan journey started in January. Five years later, I’ve learned a few things I’d love to share to help in your own vegan journey, this Veganuary.

Imitation Tim Hortons Double Chocolate Donuts: Vegan
Jump To Recipe I’m a bit of a donut fiend. Maybe it’s because Canadian culture is so closely tied to Tim Hortons donuts and coffee. Maybe it’s because my parents celebrated all their children’s tee-ball, softball, and baseball wins with a box of donuts. Maybe it’s because no road trip was complete without a couple […]
Where Do Vegans Get Their Nutrients?
In my almost-two-year vegan journey, I have learned quite a bit about proper nutrition, and how attainable it is on a vegan diet: as well as what scary things can happen to your body if you aren’t getting proper nutrition. Though the average person often assumes they are quite knowledgeable on the subject, it is amazing how little the average person understands about nutrition.
Halloween Recipes: Vegan Bat Perogies!
This recipe is both cute, AND delicious. It was also the most thoughtful recipe of my 2019 year. It all started when I was perusing Pinterest, looking for Halloween inspo, and came across this magnificent creation…

Vegan Potato and Cheese Pierogi (Perogies)
Before becoming vegan, one of my favourite lazy dinners was perogies. I have not had vegan pierogi since starting this vegan journey until I made them myself, because I simply could NOT stand never having them again. I have discovered the recipe for the most perfect vegan pierogi, and they’re potato-y and cheese-y, and OH SO GOOD.
Cheese Confessions from a “Vegan”
I knew going publicly vegan was the only way to have any chance of cutting cheese out of my life, and still… I haven’t cut it out completely. Why? Because pizza is my emotional food craving, because pizza is connected to my deceased dad.
The Best Carrot Cupcakes and Cream Cheese Frosting – All Vegan
I feel it necessary to say up front that these are THE BEST, and they are ALL VEGAN. I wanted a proper vegan cream cheese frosting to get the classic carrot cake feel…
Vegan Brunch: It’s Real and It’s Fabulous
Of course, when you think of breakfast or brunch, invariably, you will think of eggs, bacon, coffee with cream and sugar. That is, you will think of foods that are the opposite of vegan. I swear to you though, a vegan brunch as familiar as your old standard of bacon, eggs, and toast with butter, is totally possible and delicious.
