I

These garlic Parmesan potatoes make just about the best side dish you could imagine. They are covered in a savory sauce that makes them extra crispy and incredibly delicious and then topped with some vegan parm to give them a little something extra. Plus, if you’re a potato lover, these can be a meal unto themselves.

  • 1 1/2 pounds potatoes, washed and cleaned, skin on
  • 1/2 cup aquafaba (water from a can of chickpeas)
  • 1 tablespoons garlic powder
  • 5 cloves garlic
  • 3 tablespoons vegan Parmesan
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
    1. In a blender combine the chickpea brine, garlic powder, garlic, vegan parmesan, and olive oil.
    2. Season this with salt and pepper, process until it gets really smooth. You don’t want to have any chunks in this. Transfer it to a small bowl.
    3. Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper. Lay out your potatoes, then brush them with the garlic mixture using a pastry brush.
    4. Repeat this process until they are well covered, this is important to get the best flavor experience.
    5. Bake them for 20 minutes, at 415°F.
    6. After 20 minutes, take the potatoes out of the oven, sprinkle some vegan parm over them, and baking them for 20 more minutes.[…]

(Photo : Brendan Hoffman/Getty Images) In spite of the association between a vegan diet and a low body mass index (BMI), many vegans find themselves not losing weight. There are a few reasons why they do not achieve their ideal weight and worse, some even gain weight. Vegans who consume portions larger than what their body requires should not be […]

Vegans who consume portions larger than what their body requires should not be surprised at the weight they gain. The idea that they can consume an unlimited supply of nutrients found in healthy foods such as vegetables, fruit, whole grains, seeds and nuts should not be entertained.

Including more beans, lentils and peas in their meals can help vegans add protein, an essential nutrient for maintaining muscle and bone mass. Vegans who do not lose weight and feel tired most of the time may not be aware that their meals do not have sufficient amount of protein.

Eating large meals at the time of the day when they are least active contributes to weight gain– whether one is vegan or not. Light but filling meals are recommended for the evening.

Drinking plant-based beverages can also make it difficult to lose weight. Vegans should check the ingredients, nutrition facts and serving size on the label, Health reported.

Vegan Woody Harrelson: ‘I don’t like to bash castmates for their bad eating habits’

Vegan Woody Harrelson: 'I don't like to bash castmates for their bad eating habits'

The Hunger Games star encouraged Liam Hemsworth to give up meat and dairy. Raw food vegan Woody Harrelson has played down reports he lectures castmates about their eating habits, because he hates telling others how to live. The Hunger Games star admits he’ll share his thoughts about meat, dairy and bad diets if he’s asked, but he refuses to be the guy who attempts to change his co-stars. “I don’t find that people come around to my way of thinking,” he tells WENN. “It’s very hard to talk someone out of a burger if they like burgers. I don’t […]

“He just lives his truth – raw, vegan, organic. He doesn’t believe in air-conditioning, so it’s a natural flow of air. All of this helps to contribute to the wonderful unique creature that Woody is. If he eats anything onscreen, that’s a vegan version of it.”

4 Responses When Someone Asks Where You Get Your Protein

Eating an array of fruit and vegetables provides more than enough protein for the average person. In 1984, Clara Peller asked the United States, “Where’s the beef?” This catch-phrase reverberated throughout the country, and as owner of the 10-acre, 100-percent vegan Stanford Inn by the Sea , I still get asked that question today. In fact, it’s a question my wife Joan and I have been asked since 1980, when we purchased the former Big River Lodge in Mendocino to live a more integrated life. We chose to “grow” the inn sustainably (long before the term was popular), and […]
