Participants are given daily prompts and then post about it. If you need more info check out the MoFo website and get hip (click here and then come back). Today’s prompt: Hearty Breakfast. 
Steak and eggs is considered the second heartiest of the weekend breakfast in the South. The number one is Biscuits and Gravy but I already did a post on biscuits and gravy so you're gonna have to deal with second best. Also country fried steak and eggs is much more popular that steak and eggs but I already did a post on country fried steak too. Soooo...
I practice intermittent fasting. What's that? Glad you asked. Intermittent fasting is an umbrella term for various eating plans that cycle between a period of fasting (not eating) and non-fasting (and eating) over a defined pe…

I think it goes without saying but I'll say it anyway: vegan cuisine is the only cuisine that inspires me to travel. I hear London has the most vegan spots per capita over all other cities. It’s kinda the only reason why I would ever travel there. Well the access to bomb vegan food and to tour with my band, Sun Blood Stories. But mainly for the all access pass to vegan foods that I’ve never tried before. I mean seitan is abound and I’ve seen pics of the meltiest and gooiest of vegan mozz sticks.

I’ve only had vegan mozz sticks once on tour in California at Th…

Summer of 2018, I took my son and husband down to The Deep South for our first real family vacation. Sure we've gone out of town for a weekend and we've gone camping but this was our first family vacation proper. We spent half the vacation seeing the sights of Birmingham, hitting up museums and of course eating. I ate so much vegan food which was a bit of a surprise since there weren't vegan options growing up in the area. One morning we stopped in to a little spot to grab a breakfast to-go before heading down to Montgomery. We unanimously de…

There is this great little Asian market right next to my house. They have a bunch of really cool stuff that totally fits in my food budget. Right now, my fave product is this Chilli Paste with Sweet Basil Leaves. It's fermented and it's the perfect flavor profile for me: super sweet and also really effing spicy. I put it on just about everything. Like this super easy Garlic Ramen for 2.

I tour a lot with my band and that used to mean that on top of practicing and packing and the fun but still stressful act of getting on stage in front of a shit ton of people, I also had to do tons of meal planning, extensive lists, expensive trips to the grocery store, and days of food prep. I actually shared one with you a few years ago. Check out this vegan Road Trip Checklist.

But just a few short years later I'm wondering if it's even worth it to do all that work just save a few dollars. Vegans got options now. I compared two different tours and found that prepping all th…

I have already shared with you why Autumn is the best season of all and I think I gave a pretty convincing set of reasons. Most convincing of the set is the fact that we get Halloween and Thanksgiving back to back in Fall. I'm not big on holidays but any excuse to get dressed up and/or eat a shit ton of food with my family is alright with me.

There are few holidays in the South that don't call for Mac 'N Cheese. In fact, at this exact moment, I can't think of a single one. All holiday spreads should include Mac 'N Cheese and I …
