Hi Everyone! My name is Stephanie Williams. I’m an actress & writer, and I write for a vegan blog called “Vegan, What?” I know you’ve probably been noticing the increasing amount of celebrities like Pamela Anderson, Lea Michele, and Olivia Wilde,  adopting a vegan way of life, and I’m sure it’s got you curious what eating vegan is all about. Well,...

I’ve always loved Muesli. Ever since I was small. My Dad, just about every morning, would pour himself a big bowl for breakfast and I would sneakily steal a spoon or two. For some reason I thought it was a cereal for grown-ups, and so thieving and stuffing some in my mouth before Dad would see, only served to enhance the appeal and flavor. The dry chewiness of the...

Let’s be honest, eating veggies is never exciting. A plate of veggies has never gotten me salivating like a plate of freshly baked chocolate chip cookies or brownies could. They just don’t have the same effect, even though we all know well which our bodies would prefer more. All our colorful plant food friends are packed full of phytonutrients (highly nutritious...

When one thinks of some of life’s most comforting aromas, the smell of an apple pie baking in the oven, a loaf of homemade bread on a cold day, or the glorious scent of pancakes on a sleepy weekend morning all come to mind. Most of us would agree that there’s no more magical a combination in life than that of flour, butter and sugar. A bakery, with all it’s...

Recently I’ve taken a trip back to my home country of Ireland for music related reasons and along with all the other delicious staples of the Irish diet that I have been indulging in, I have returned to the daily consumption of a good old cup of tea. Tea is to Ireland what coffee is to America. The comforting daily liquid that fuels our day! There’s nothing like...

        “For my part, I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel’s sake. The great affair is to move.”  – Robert Louis Stevenson I recently took a long flight back to the U.S with my sister and nephew. It was an hour flight to London and then and 8 hour flight to Philadelphia. And then a few days later we flew from Philadelphia...

                                       “A woman should never be seen eating or drinking, unless it be                         lobster salad and Champagne, the only true feminine and becoming viands”                                                                     – Lord Byron Salad,...

While the jury still remains out on this one, with contradictions about coffees pros and cons at every turn, I, being a fan of an occasional cup myself, will say that in this case you would do best to remember the phrase “everything in moderation”. As remember, it contains caffeine, a naturally occurring stimulant found in the leaves, seeds and fruits of dozens...

Variety is the spice life they say and I believe the same can be said of food. In today’s society with our short attention spans, we constantly want to try new foods, taste new things, eat a different meal practically every day to prevent boring our palates. We are not like our ancestors who pretty much would eat the same few staple things day in, day out. We are...

The South Beach Diet , The Atkins Diet, The Lemonade Diet, The Blood Type Diet, The Flat Belly Diet, The Glycemic index Diet… diet..diet..diet , blah, blah, blah… The plethora of “diets” that have come, gone, and have still yet to make their way into our weight-loss obsessed society is enough to make your head spin, leave you ravenous, terribly...
