Yum, yum, yum!! I'm going to give this recipe a go as soon as I get to the grocery store again. It seems I've taken a respite from the store in the last few weeks...ah, laziness is my friend. :)

Lovely - this was so beautifully written and I just had to comment to say that. What a difference we make to our bodies in terms of health when we eat plan-based _as_often_as_we_can. And, yes, with no rules, no labels, just love. LOVE THAT! I've also adopted the "Weekday Vegan" lifestyle and even David's on board!

So funny that you post this salad. We just finished the leftovers from a black bean salad I made Monday. Black beans, grilled corn on the cob, onion, tomato, avocado, parsley, and a yummy lime dressing. YUM!

Love you!

Loving this new feature, beauty!
I know what i'm serving for dinner this evening ;-)


beautifully written! there is such a lovely and light storytelling to this. i am so going to make this salad and have corn in my fridge, which just today i could be heard saying..."what could i make with that damn corn??"..condemning it to a life of butter and cob.
thank you and denise for lighting the way and loosening the girdle on this subject.


fabulous post, love. also. that three bean salad? SO what i am making for dinner tonight. get in my belleh ;) xo


I know you said you would devote a post next week to alternative cheese and perhaps me talking a bit about cheese here is bad form, but hopefully not. I am extremely close to vegan and have been for many years. I eat very small amounts of cheese because as you've probably discovered yourself after eating this way for awhile, your body doesn't really crave it the way it may have before. I find that a small amount of parm on lots of different things can impart an added layer of interest and flavor and it's not terribly high in calories and/or fat. Also, Trader Joes has a pretty great American singles type vegan cheese that actually tastes good, which isn't always the case with some of these cheeses. It also melts fabulously. I look forward to hearing about your cheese alternatives!


i am normally a lurker, but when you mentioned "cheese", i just had to post. i work for a company out of bozeman montana that makes a "cheese" called "we can't say its cheese". i PROMISE you, this "cheese" is fantastic.....and the best part about it is that it is made with oatmeal. if you get a chance, check out their site!


Tara, Oatmeal cheese! I can't wait to try it. Looks like they sell it at the Whole Foods I go to so will definitely check it out!. Thank you.


hi, just found your blog through red chai mama.

"I am now starting to practice acceptance that how I choose to eat doesn't need to be one way, or not at all. I am free to embrace the parts that feel right for me and release the parts that don't. I don't need to follow anyone else's's guidelines but my own, and I am also free to step outside those lines without judgment."

i would love to read more at peace with food posts in blogland.

I've been looking for THE perfect satchel bag and thanks to you, I think I've found a great place to search for one! As always I find new discoveries on your blog. Thanks! Is there anyway that you could e-mail that pattern to me? I have a friend who is having a birthday on March 21st and I just found your pattern today. She loves birds and this would be the perfect handmade gift for her.
