Wait, Don’t Throw Those Out! Radish Top Soup

By Cindy Thompson, Trimazing! Vegan Lifestyle & Health Coaching | August 22, 2019 |

One of my favorite things to do is to go browse the book sections at thrift stores and antique shops, looking for old cookbooks. I’ve found some fantastic books, even some really old ones, like the White House Cookbook from 1899! These old books are great resources for time-forgotten recipes and ideas. One of my…

A few weeks ago Alan and I took a little impromptu road trip to explore part of the North Cascades Loop in Washington state, going clockwise from Burlington to Monroe. It had been years since Alan had done this and I don’t recall ever going on the section between Concrete and Wenatchee, Washington. We found…

Alan’s Tears—Featured Cocktail at the Lakehouse

By Cindy Thompson, Trimazing! Vegan Lifestyle & Health Coaching | August 18, 2019 |

  Alan doesn’t do spicy. I, on the other hand, adore hot, spicy foods, especially cocktails. Whenever we go out, I scan the drink menu for a spicy cocktail to try. Even though Alan can’t handle spicy, for some reason, he always has to try a sip, which makes him whine and cry! When we…

I Was Addicted to Cheese—Recipe for Trimazing! Mac and Cheeze

By Cindy Thompson, Trimazing! Vegan Lifestyle & Health Coaching | August 17, 2019 |

When I first announced that I was going vegan, everyone I knew said the same thing, “You can’t be vegan, you’re addicted to cheese!” Isn’t that telling? Absolutely everyone had the same response. And it was true. I had said this for years. I just felt that it was an addiction, and it wasn’t until years…

What a Jerk! BBQ Jerked Jackfruit Sliders

By Cindy Thompson, Trimazing! Vegan Lifestyle & Health Coaching | August 16, 2019 |

Before I went vegan 10 years ago, one of my favorite things was jerked chicken. There’s just something magical about the spicy combination of  allspice, cinnamon, vinegar, onions, habaneros, and brown sugar! One of my fellow firefighters, Tiffanie Rost, used to make the BEST jerked chicken at the firehouse, in fact, she was the one…

What’s Up Doc? Carrot Top Pesto

By Cindy Thompson, Trimazing! Vegan Lifestyle & Health Coaching | August 15, 2019 |

I love using things that would otherwise be wasted and carrot tops are one of those things. Oftentimes you don’t even get an opportunity to use them as the greens usually get cut off before being sold at the grocer. But you can find carrots with the tops still on them at some grocery stores,…

Fresh Fava Beans & Fava Bean Pod Green Enchilada Sauce

By Cindy Thompson, Trimazing! Vegan Lifestyle & Health Coaching | August 14, 2019 |

Admit it, you immediately thought of Hannibal Lecter, didn’t you? Man, did Silence of the Lambs kill fava beans. Silence of the Lambs scared the hell out of me when it came out, and it still scares me! I’m not a scary movie lover at all (my sister-in-law, Nikki, has to see every horror movie…

Phantom of the Okra

By Cindy Thompson, Trimazing! Vegan Lifestyle & Health Coaching | August 13, 2019 |

I Love Okra Yup, you just knew I was a weirdo! It might be my “southern” upbringing by my Louisianan mom, but I just can’t get enough of this amazing vegetable. I used to work with a firefighter who’d serve pan-fried breaded okra for breakfast every once and a while—heaven! If there’s okra on the…
