Creative Vegan, Gluten-Free Donut Recipes

by Jessica Bose

Every city we visit seems to have their own famous vegan donut shop. You know what I’m talking about. The one centered in the hip part of town with a line to the sidewalk. Inside, there’s Instagram-worthy decor and a case full of jaw-dropping flavors. These shops are always fun to visit, but what if they don’t carry a donut that suits your dietary needs? Better yet, what if you don’t live in one of these cities?

Vegan, Gluten-free Valentine’s Day Treats for Everyone

by Niki Konkoly

Whether you’re riding solo or celebrating with friends this Valentine’s Day, have a boo to woo, or just, frankly, don’t give a damn about this day, we’ve got you covered for (mostly pink) dessert ideas.

For all the Single Ladies (and Gents) out there

Don’t worry if you find yourself single on the (perfectly average) day used to boost the sales of tacky, useless, pink objects; it’s the perfect time to give yourself some love. Get yourself one of those over-sized balloons if you please, and make sure you treat yourself to something sweet.

Less enthusiastic people may consider it slightly shameful that I always, without fail, end up having to re-stock a few weeks later – but the truth is, indulging in pumpkin goodies doesn’t have to leave you feeling guilty. In fact, this nutrient powerhouse is packed with vitamins, antioxidants, phytochemicals, minerals, and dietary fiber – all of which can benefit your physical and mental wellbeing in an impressive number of ways. With only 49 calories per cup and zero saturated fat or cholesterol to worry about, you really can’t go wrong!
