The Lifestyle of a Vegetarian in College

Submissions can be anything from recipes to photos that are vegetarian or something you would like to see featured on the blog. It can have anything to do with what you've been doing on campus that is green to not so quality cell phone pics of that delicious three am snack you just made.

My Guide to Cooking Amazing Tofu

As a single ingredient, tofu has a lot to offer and it’s worth learning how to cook it well. I’ve gathered together all of my tofu recipes, tutorials, tips, and tricks together into this all-inclusive tofu resource.  You’ll be enjoying amazing tofu dishes in no time!

Why do you need to learn how to cook tofu?

  • It’s high in protein (13g/serving)
  • A source of calcium and iron
  • Mild in flavour making it ideal for marinades
  • Versatile – it can be baked, sautéed, fried, grilled, you name it!
  • Quick and easy to prepare – it can be flavoured and prepared in as little as 10 minutes
  • Very cost effective, 1 block ($2.27) = 4 servings ($0.57/serving)

Tofu has some awesome health benefits too! Studies have shown that eating tofu can help to lower bad cholesterol, and 25g of soy protein per day may reduce the risk of heart disease (in combination with a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol.) Check the label and look for non-GMO tofu.

really lovethis couples approach to eating when there is a vegetarian and carnivore living together! This is pretty much how my boyfriend and I try to do things, except I haven’t ever cooked him meat… I think it’s a good read for any vegetarian or meat eater who recently started dating a vegetarian. It’s all about balance!

What do y’all think about this?

Do any of y’all use anything to help your hair grow that is vegan or vegetarian friendly? I’m not going to take supplements with fish oil is specifically what I’m thinking of not being vegetarian. The lady who cut my hair today said something about biotin? I’ve heard of it but haven’t looked into it yet. Thanks for any suggestions!
