We're back! We took a little one week hiatus from the blog and podcast because we were soaking up the sun, and enjoying a little family reunion after almost 4 years without seeing each other. We went to Panama City and Playa Blanca in Panama, and you'll be hearing all about it soon, including of course an in depth post all about whether Panama is vegan friendly or not (cliff hanger!), which you'll get to read in a little guest article we'll be writing for The Nomadic Vegan. In the meantime though, I owed you our behind the scenes post and episode of our little vegan Thanksgiving. Although it feels like it was ages ago, it's actually perfect timing because the ideas I'll share with you, and the very important lesson I learned, will help you a ton if you're planning to host a vegan holiday dinner or lunch, and even if you're planning to take vegan options with you to your holiday gatherings. I sometimes call Thanksgiving the test run for Christmas, since I tend to experiment a bit more for T-day and have everything perfectly rehearsed for Christmas when we usually have more guests and more food will be served.Read More
It's a special day at Brownble today. We've got our party shoes on, champagne is out, we're doin' a little dance around our coffee table... why? Because we have a very special guest today! You've met her before if you've made our delicious oat coconut cranberry bars, none other than the incredible Wendy Werneth from thenomadicvegan.com!
Just in case you haven't met her before, she's basically the top vegan travel blogger around, and I'm incredibly lucky to call her a friend, not to mention a source of inspiration for being adventurous and exploring this beautiful planet of ours. Every time I'm on her site I feel like packing a bag, grabbing her e-book on the way out the door and heading out to explore a new destination.Read More
I can't tell you how excited I am about today's video and recipe since we had a very special guest in the Brownble kitchen to film it! It was none other than the top expert in vegan travel out there, Wendy Werneth from The Nomadic Vegan. The go to place for anything related to vegan travel tips and how to enjoy the local traditions of any place you go to, try their local specialties while being vegan. I call it the cliffs notes of vegan travel because she quite literally does ALL the homework for you! She tells you what local foods are vegan or can be easily made vegan, she guides you through the spots you just don't want to miss, and she even teaches you the words you need to learn to explain your dietary needs in the local language! I mean... right?!Read More
A visit from The Nomadic Vegan, lunch at Rayen Vegano and a beautiful spring wedding
Happy Monday everyone! This week was so exciting I can't even tell you. It was also crazy busy which is basically the translation of exciting around here. We had our hands full with recipe testing, editing, adding all the new features to our online program, plus we went to a very special wedding surrounded by friends and the most beautiful spring weather. They had a special vegan menu all set up for us and it was delicious! We were all dolled up as you can see. The bride who worked with Carlos at the hospital was so beautiful and happy, I have to tell you I'm a sucker for a good wedding, especially when it's of friends we care about so much.
That night we came home early and started setting everything up for a very fun Sunday. Wendy Werneth from the amazing vegan travel blog The Nomadic Vegan was going to be on set with us filming a few videos that are coming your way soon! It was the first time we've ever had a guest on set with us and I can't even tell you how much fun that was. You'll get to hear it in one of the videos, since we shot a scene in which everyone suddenly burst out laughing! Including Carlos behind the camera and Wendy's husband Nick who was also with us on set.
The Nomadic Vegan, homemade seitan sausages with carbonara and vegan brezel
It's that time of the week again in which I get to share our favorite vegan eats and treats from the past week, straight from our kitchen table. This week was especially delicious and fun since I got to meet my favorite vegan travel blogger Wendy Werneth from The Nomadic Vegan. We've become friends over the past few years in the blogging world, but we had never actually met! It was so much fun and exciting to get to meet her in person this weekend, as she stopped by for a flash visit from Geneva. Wendy is a truly amazing person and as sweet as she sounds in her blog. She's travelled to over 97 countries, speaks 6 languages and is married to a fellow teacher who also happens to be one of our most recent My Brownble members. He's cooking up a storm with all of our recipes, and Wendy is such a lucky lady having Nick cook for her. You'll see all the photos below and of course more amazing grub from our very own kitchen to yours. Let's do this thing!Read More
