Vegan Chickpea Un-tuna Salad

Anything Vegan Vegan Chickpea Un-tuna Salad
Love the taste of Tuna but don’t love the idea of eating out fellow sea creatures?  Like the taste of fish but not crazy about possibly ingesting mercury and other toxins from earths unfortunately pollutes waters? Well, did you know that fish (and other sea”food”) don’t actually taste like fish at all?  Crazy right? Fish get their very familiar fishy taste and smell from sea vegetables.  Sea vegetables offer the broadest range of minerals of any food and are an excellent source of iodine, vitamin C, manganese, and vitamin B2,  vitamin A (in the form of carotenoids), copper, protein, pantothenic acid, potassium, iron, zinc, vitamin B6, niacin, phosphorus, and vitamin B1!  Long list right? So if you think about it fish are the “middle-men”  why not go straight to the source and include a variety of sea vegetables?  If you think I’m going overboard with my praise of sea vegetables… you’re right! And there’s more! Sea vegetables are anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer, anticoagulant, antithrombotic, and have antiviral properties. Not quite sure how too incorporate them?  Well we’ve got you covered check out the recipe below: Vegan Chickpea Un-tuna Salad!  Featuring one of my favorite non-dairy mayo on the market, Just Mayo by Hampton Creek.

This dish is a quick fix, can last about a week in the refrigerator and can be served with crackers or toast.  I love this dish because 1 can (or made fresh) of chickpeas is packed with nutrients.

A one-cup serving of raw chickpeas provides 50% of daily potassium needs, 2% vitamin A, 21% calcium, 13% vitamin C, 69% iron, 2% sodium, 55% vitamin B-6 and 57% magnesium. Oh wait, there’s more! Chickpeas contain vitamin K, folate, phosphorus, zinc, copper, manganese, choline and selenium. So if you’re looking for a delicious food dish that will provide  an excellent source of protein and fiber checkout chickpeas, they also contain exceptional levels of iron, vitamin B-6 and magnesium.

“It Runs In My Family”: The Top 7 Killers We MUST Beat

Growing up we’ve all heard people talk about the issues they’re dealing with because “it runs in my family.” Seldom are they discussing anything good. They’re usually explaining away diseases of the body or mind, weight issues, difficulties in money, relationships or jobs/business. But decades of research has found that these issues are actually the results of what runs in families, not the causes. The top 7 Killers that are often passed generation to generation, causing diabetes, heart disease, are what I refer to as the “Uns”. How many of these “Uns” have you seen your parents struggle with? How many are trying to take you out today? Are they attacking your children right now?

Decadently Delicious UN Bars

Anything Vegan UN-bars

You may think a snack with “un” at the beginning would be unappetizing, but these bars are anything but! They are healthy and delicious and perfect for a day hike, an afternoon pick-me-up, or an after school snack. Just make sure that your nuts are unsalted–that’s when you’ll get the best nutrients from the nuts. Enjoy!

Mother’s Day – Food and Family Anything Vegan Style

Easy Elegant Anything Vegan Chicken Marsala

This month marked the 100th anniversary of the celebration of Mother’s Day. The celebration of the Director of Operations for the family – a.k.a. ‘MOM” – is a cherished ritual.

Mother’s Day gives her that something special back. That something is a special message “We see what you do for us. Thank you. You are appreciated. You are loved.” This day also reinforces the bond between mother and child, and exhibits the admiration of the spouse or partner.

“Excuse me do you have ANYTHING VEGAN?”  This was the question Anything Vegan asked all day Sunday on our vegan grub prowl at Taste of D.C.  We found a few good hits like this Authentic Greek vegan, gluten-free salad dressing formulated by restaurant Athens Grill/Angeli Gourmet owner Anna Maria Angelakis. When I tasted it I had a flashback,  in 2008 I ate at this little Greek Restaurant in Australia when I bit into my portobello salad wrap I was hit with a remarkable burst of flavors that I will always remember and never tasted again…until Sunday at Taste of D.C, this dressing taste like Greece in a bottle!
