vegan-paris-veggie-friendly-niébé

It’s official, Paris rive gauche is finally coming round to the magnifique way of life! Whilst the rive droit has enjoyed a veggie-mecca makeover these past few years, the left bank has always been decidedly lacklustre for us plant-based health bunnies. But, thanks to another entertaining missive from always-on-point The Light Side, a shiny new world of veggie in ...

nutrition B12 plantbased vegetarian health

Ann and I have been asked about vitamin B12 a lot recently. It’s the first thing people tell you to watch out for when you say you’re a vegan. But – newsflash – B12 isn’t actually inherent in meat, nor in dairy. It comes from the soil. So for an animal product to contain vitamin ...

Vegan and Eco-friendly presents

Among the many things currently on your mind, one of them may not be the new Disney movie, Moana. (But, give it a thought, it’s fantastic.) No. Your thoughts are most likely revolving around the 5 million things you have to do before Christmas. And me, too. (Of course, I’m also thinking about the Disney movie… ...

atelier italian cooking workshop

Avocado vegan deviled egg

Let’s stop pretending… Sometimes you leave vegan restaurants not entirely satisfied. It’s not that you haven’t eaten enough… or gotten enough nutrients (au contraire, often at vegan restaurants, you get more than enough nutrients,) it’s just that there’s still something missing. Like, you ate so light, so healthy, that you are jonesing to dig your teeth ...

matcha moringa chia pudding

Thick… creamy… Words that make my little heart sing, and my tummy grumble in anticipation. Why? Because I’m a texture fanatic. Not that taste is to be overlooked, but texture is my jam. Think about it… Avocados… it’s all about the creaminess. Sticky-rice… it’s all about the chewiness. Carrot sticks… it’s all about the snappy ...

chloe and ann veggie world entrance

One of our favorite things to do is give presentations — we love public speaking, frolicking around on stage, and sharing yummy recipes with crowds… (Speaking of… if you are interested in coming to our October Italian cooking class next week at 5 Lorette, we have a few spots, but you better rally, and fast!) So ...
