Aluminum Free Deodorants that are also VEGAN If you’re too busy to make your own vegan deodorant, here’s a short list of aluminum free deodorants and what I think of them.

Nature’s Gate Fruit Blend Deodorant  (pictured to the left) Pros: This deodorant is completely vegan and cruelty free. It has a strong patchouli fragrance that seems to last longer than most brands.

Eggless Cornbread (Vegan Cornbread)

Eggless Cornbread (Vegan Cornbread)

Eggless Cornbread (Vegan) There’s no way I could post vegan collard greens without including an eggless cornbread recipe. What would a Sunday be without cornbread? This cornbread is moist and sweet. If you’re one of those weirdos who don’t like your cornbread sweet, I suggest substituting the sweeteners for a spoonful of nutritional yeast and adding a bit of extra salt.   For this vegan cornbread you will need: 2 cups of cornmeal 1 cup all purpose flour 2 tsp of apple cider vinegar 2 cups cashew milk ( or any other non dairy milk) 1/4 tsp of baking...

Vegan Collard Greens: Cruelty Free Soul Food

Vegan Collard Greens: Cruelty Free Soul ...

Vegan Collard Greens These vegan collard greens are truly heaven sent. As a black woman from the south, Sunday just isn’t a Sunday without a nice pot of greens that you KNOW your grandma put her foot in (not literally lol). The unfortunate downside of greens is that they are traditionally slow cooked with bacon, ham-hock or some other form of pork.  My vegan collard greens are tender, smoky, and delicious. While they do not taste exactly like the real thing, they are about as close as I’ve ever come to making greens taste great without animal products. Without...

Vegan Hair Masks Nothing is more essential to the upkeep and maintenance of a woman of color’s natural hair than a good protein treatment. Our hair is made from protein and in order to keep them healthy and lively, we must repair and replenish that protein as much as necessary. Before I went vegan, I used to protein treat cheaply with eggs or use premade protein conditioners that contained animals products. After I did some adjusting to my moral compass and went vegan, I had to find an effective and cruelty free alternative. In this post I will outline some of the...

Vegan Spicy Mayo I LOVE THIS VEGAN SPICY MAYO! Most vegetarians are stuck on cheese when they think about going vegan. For me, it was the spicy mayo and eel sauce combination that kept me vegetarian for the longest. That being said, this recipe is, dare I say, just as good if not better than real spicy mayo. If it weren’t, I honestly would not have bothered. For this vegan spicy mayo recipe you will need: 1/3 c. plant based mayo like “Just Mayo” brand. 1/2 tsp sesame oil 1/3 tsp of Sriracha A few dashes of soy sauce.   Direction: In a small bowl...
