Tofu 101 with 20 Recipes!

Tofu 101 with 20 Recipes!

If we at ecoRDN had a vegan donut for every time some clown proclaimed, “tofu? yuck! tofu is gross!” we’d never need to buy another vegan donut, ever again. In fact, we would have enough vegan donuts to open our own vegan donut shop, and sail into the dairy-free sunset, handing out donuts like kittens hand out cute concussions. Wow! That’s quite a few vegan donuts, because kittens are cute, and the sad reality among fu-phobes and soya naysayers is grim and misinformed.

Not all tofu is created equal.

(Vegan) Meal Planning-The Planner

(Vegan) Meal Planning-The Planner

Hope you picked up something from our last post and enjoyed the recipe for wild blueberry cardamom oats!

I suppose the 2nd week of the new year was fairly uneventful. Most everyone is likely back to their regular daily hustle and out of the post holiday fog. The temps are finally back up here in Pittsburgh after some wicked lows and we can all move about a little easier with a few less layers.

(Vegan) Meal Planning-Shopping the Deals

(Vegan) Meal Planning-Shopping the Deals

Hi friends!
A meal planning blog post is something that I have been thinking about doing for a loooooong time now. The start of the new year seemed like the perfect opportunity to just get on with it. I am going to take you through my process of planning, purchasing and then creating the finished products…the meals! I want to keep the post relatively short so it doesn’t take up too much of either of our time to get through it. Hopefully you will learn a new tip or trick to save money or time or money and time or something all together different yet equally awesome. If you have further questions about anything or if you have a brilliant idea to share then please feel free to comment below.

Best of Plant-Based Expo East 2017!

Best of Plant-Based Expo East 2017!

ecoRDN got off to a bumpy start this year as we headed from Pittsburgh to Baltimore for Natural Products Expo East. Greyhound “lost” our bus. No, we didn’t know that was a thing either. So, we were rerouted to a later bus with a layover in Harrisburg, which put us 3 hours behind schedule. We arrived too late for badge pick up and totally missed the Harvest Festival. However, the long bus ride did give us opportunity to thoroughly search the Happy Cow website to find our dinner spot. We chose Sticky Rice in Fells Point due to their many vegan options and the close proximity to our Air-bnb. Plus, it was still open at 8:30pm on a Wednesday. We chose the Dirty Vegan and the Mock Chicken Szechaun, both amazing! After a good nights sleep we were ready to pick up our badges and hit the expo floor!

Interview with Onion Maiden 💚

Onion Maiden‘s brick-and-mortar opened Spring 2017, located at 639 E Warrington Ave in Allentown. After rocking the pop-ups and popping up around the 412 for so many the plant-based events, the vegan-fused trio of plant-based *bad*brains who flex their amazing take on Asian-American fusion finally found their hearth home. Here is a recap of a dope pop-up Onion Maiden dinner at The Vandal back in February 2016!
