Living Vegan in Charlotte, NC – and elsewhere!
We vegans love our nutritional yeast – often affectionately referred to as “nooch.” The yellow flakes give a savory, slightly cheesy flavor to everything from popcorn to “cheese” grits to corn chowder to “mac and nooch.” Vegans who don’t like taking vitamin supplements often rely on nutritional yeast as their main source of B12. And,… Read More ›
One of the most damaging “words of wisdom” you’ll hear as a vegan is, “Vegans are deficient in Vitamin D because of their diets!” This is damaging, because: (1) Vegans are no more likely to face a shortfall of Vitamin D than omnivores; and (2) Diet has very little to do with a Vitamin D… Read More ›

Happy 2016!

Several weeks ago, my partner and I tried Chipotle’s new vegan tofu offering, Sofritas, for the first time. I have to say, we were impressed. So impressed, in fact, that Sunday night my partner and I decided to have Sofritas again. We invited his vegetarian-all-her-life sister to accompany us. I ordered the same Sofritas bowl… Read More ›
First, a disclaimer. Most omnivores are lovely people. They may not understand the dietary and ethical choices I have made, but they respect them.
