Tofutti Cuties


Thanks to Rob’s recommendation in a comment to a previous entry, I decided to pick up a box of Tofutti Cuties. Verdict: good stuff! I’d really like to try their Mint Chocolate Chip Cuties sometime.

Vegan: The New Ethics of Eating


The book Vegan: The New Ethics of Eating is now available to download in PDF format for free (yes, the whole thing!) at The book is 216 pages long, but the PDF file is only a little over a meg.

“Are you a vegan?”


It’s kind of funny… a lot of people recently have been asking me, “You’re not vegan, are you?” I think the assumption comes from the fact that I substitute soy cheese for regular cheese almost always when I’m cooking or making sandwiches as well as the almond and soy milk in the fridge (right next to cow’s milk, though). My response: “Nope… but I have cut back on dairy and eggs.”

I don’t know whether I’ll ever make the jump towards veganism, but even now, I’m trying to be as “cruelty-free” as possible (buying strictly organic milk, sour cream, etc.) as well as cutting back on cheese (due mainly to the saturated fat content).

Now if I can just cut back on those Double Stuf Oreos… :)

Almond milk

Last week I noticed that almond milk from Blue Diamond (a sponsor of Regina’s Vegetarian Table) was on sale. I decided to give the chocolate variety a shot.

I must say, I’m impressed. The taste was about the same (and perhaps slightly better) than the chocolate soy milk I’ve tried… more understated, but not watered down. It’s amazing that they’ve managed to get a good taste chocolate milk substitute out of almonds, of all things.

Take a look at the nutritional information.
