By Cindy Thompson, Trimazing! Vegan Lifestyle & Health Coaching | August 30, 2019 |

Ok, I know you’re trying to figure out how on Earth something called Texas Hash would be inspired by Seattle! But it’s true…Texas Hash is one of my Grandma Grace’s recipes that I’ve veganized.

By Cindy Thompson, Trimazing! Vegan Lifestyle & Health Coaching | August 29, 2019 |

The prompt for today’s VeganMoFo19 is all about getting a hearty breakfast before a day of pounding the pavement in a new city.

Get on the Boat, the Banana Boat!

By Cindy Thompson, Trimazing! Vegan Lifestyle & Health Coaching | August 26, 2019 |

During Happy Vegan Campers, I mentioned our family camping tradition of Banana Boats.

We make these at the Lakehouse with the grandkids when we’re…

Vegan’s Restaurant in Prague & Tempeh Guláš Recipe

By Cindy Thompson, Trimazing! Vegan Lifestyle & Health Coaching | August 25, 2019 |

I first traveled there in 2001, days after September 11th, and their amazing response to the 9-11 terrorist attacks made an indelible mark on my heart. I remember going to St. Wenceslas Square, the scene of historic protests and demonstrations, the rainy night of September 13th where…
