One of the hardest parts of being a new vegan (or even an old seasoned vegan) is trying to keep up with all the new products out there. I must have spent over $50 looking for the "right" vegan cheese my first year being a vegan and I have over 50 vegan/vegetarian cookbooks in my arsenal but not all the recipes are the greatest. I’m the first born so I’m used to being a Guinea Pig and now I’m your Vegan Guinea Pig. So here are my recommendations and critiques. Let me know what you think!

Quick & Easy Dinner Solutions

Keeping with the quick and easy theme of this week (and likely next week too), I did some very strategic grocery shopping on my way home from class this week. After my disappointing dinner the other night I wanted to make sure that I stocked the house with nothing but convenience foods that I know I can depend on for an amazing meal time and time again. The criteria – must be ready in under 10 minutes, low in calories (since I’m not really hitting the gym like I should be right now), and a good source of essential macro- and micro-nutrients.

Well tonight’s dinner came from an oldie but goodie Chicken Free Buffalo Wings. I warmed them up in the microwave for one minute then stuck them in the toaster oven on broil for 2 minutes while I whipped up a little extra buffalo sauce and vegan blue cheeze dressing on the side (which took about 2 minutes). Then I threw about 2 cups of mixed veggies in the steamer and steamed them for 3-4 minutes and voila! A delicious meal with a solid protein source, veggies, and tons of vitamins and minerals. I didn’t have time to rustle around the house and find my camera so my camera phone had to shoot today’s food porn and I have to say I’m quite proud of my little blackberry curve.


  1. YUMMY. Looks good. I am intrigued by those buffalo wing thingies, I've never seen anything like that in the shops over here.

  2. Yum. Nothing like having some fast and easy go-to items in the fridge when you need them. Do you have a post for the vegan blue cheese dressing?


  3. Hey Faith, the recipe for blue cheeze dressing is in my book - Quick & Easy Vegan Comfort Food
