    Although it may seem that New Years has come and gone...

    the Lunar New Year is just around the corner (February 8th to be exact). The annual celebration that highlights the cycles of the moon is a time when many people stop their day to day life and make a long journey home to visit loved one and remember their ancestors.

  • Get to Know Your Farmers and Their Crops

    You know we love the farm to table lifestyle.

    We believe that shopping local & organic helps your body, your economy, as well as the planet. Farmers markets provide a wonderful resource to save money, eat well, and mingle with growers in your area. If you haven’t checked out your own farmers market, get over there ASAP! Now what about those controversial soybeans? Soybeans are not something we see regularly here in Southern California because they are grown back in Ohio & Nebraska. That doesn’t mean we haven’t spent some time getting to know our Organic soybean farmers and celebrating their work in the fight against GMOs.

  • Sweet Side of Tofu – Holiday Treats

    Missletoe

    Holiday Treats...

    are one of the best parts of the winter months. Festive celebrations, office parties and friendly gatherings have us eating (and drinking) more than our fair share this time of year. Unfortunately, holiday treats and booze have become an inescapable part of the season. However, there are ways to trim back, clean up and cut calories (or try a "chocolaty" vegan spin). Low sugar, tofu-based desserts are one of the season’s best-kept secrets. Come holiday time, tofu is our secret weapon in the desserts department. It makes for high protein, low fat and low sugar treats the whole family can enjoy.

  • Eating Smart Through the Holidays

    Thanksgiving Centerpiece

    The month of Thanksgiving is here...

    and with it we kick off the holiday season. Shorter days, holiday vacations and football games are just a few excuses to gather with loved ones this time of year. Cold weather begs for warm and comforting dishes, and we’re all happy to enjoy a home-cooked meal in lieu of braving the cold winter weather round dinnertime. But be aware, as it is easy to pack on the pounds this time of year. If you’re anything like us, your appetites surely grow as the weather cools down. These are the months we have playfully dubbed, “pie season” for their endless goodies and rich celebratory fare.

  • Easy Tofu Skillet with The Vegetarian Mama

    Morinaga Easy Tofu Skillet Header

    School is back in session and after school activities are ramping up. Busy schedules are in full swing. But what about dinner on those hectic nights? We all have to eat, right? Somehow dinner gets neglected. Even with crunched time frames, you can make dinner happen. You need to plan a little and pick recipes that are simple to make. My family eats tofu at least once a week. We love to play with the flavor of tofu and how it blends with other foods. One of our favorite meals are zoodles. Have you heard of zoodles before? It is zucchini that has been spiralized. It is a great way to get more vegetables into your diet, a great alternative to pasta and they are fun to eat. You can make zoodles by using a hand held spiralizer or a hand crank machine. Both items are inexpensive to purchase. Many grocery stores are now offering ready-to-go zoodles in the produce section. Keep your eye out for those!

  • Building a Cookbook Collection

    In a sea of online recipes...

    the tattered old pages of a cookbook can seem obsolete. Why scour through piles of paper when you can click and comment at the speed of light? While online recipes are becoming the norm, cookbook sales have never been higher. More people are buying, selling, writing and using cookbooks than ever – so what gives? Is there something magic in the turn of a page that just can’t be found online? We’d like to think so.

    Ingredients An open cookbook can be easier to handle when assembling your ingredients.
