Baked Yucca Fries

Yucca (or yuca), also known as cassava, is a starchy root vegetable. Similar to a potato but slightly sweeter, creamier and sturdier, it makes fantastic fries. If you are new to yucca, this is an excellent way to try this amazing tuber. Yucca is available in many mainstream grocery stores. In fact, you may have seen it before, and not realized what it was (I only know since I am married…

A Day In The Life Of A Vegan Traveler In Bali

A Day In The Life Of A Vegan Traveler In Bali

Agave And Sea Salt Roasted Sweet Potatoes

These tasty little gems are delicious as an appetizer, a side, or a snack. They caramelize while roasting, resulting in a chewy and creamy sweet potato. You can even add more agave and sea salt after roasting to coat the sweet potatoes, or adjust the original amount to your liking. If you are a fan of sweet and salty, these will definitely be one of your favorites. They are also super…

A Kind Solution To World Hunger

Giving Thanks

By Kathryn Hayward, M.D. and Elle Stetson-Dibble One of the most emotionally charged subjects concerning our food choices involves animal welfare. As we embarked on understanding and writing about this often-polarizing topic, we made a commitment to discover a way to discuss it with balance, openness and curiosity, and to find areas of common ground among all concerned. We both felt eager to learn about this theme from a variety…

Getting Restaurants To Add Vegan Menu Items

By Kathryn Hayward, M.D. On Thursday night last week, we enjoyed a wonderful dinner at the first restaurant on Mallorca to embrace the 4 COS4S project.  From prior posts, you will recall that 4 COS4S invites restaurants to add to their menus four whole food, plant-based items. The restaurant is Can Amer, one of Mallorca’s finest dining establishments located in the small city of Inca. A few weeks ago, Caty…

4 COS4S (Four Things), Part 3

By Kathryn Hayward, M.D. and Elle Stetson-Dibble There are few activities that affect our individual health and well-being more than what we put in our bodies for nutrition. When we make daily decisions about what to eat, we usually think about how that food is going to taste, going to make us feel, and how it is going to affect our health and our weight.  However, we often do not think…

Vegans On Holiday: Mallorca, The Number One Destination!

Believe it or not, but Mallorca is the top destination for vegans in Europe. I know I’m using superlatives here, but I do believe it’s true. Not only are more and more high-class restaurants (such as the “Hotel Valldemossa” or the two-star Michelin restaurant “Es Fum”) starting to offer extensive vegan menus, but the local government is also recognizing the rising number of vegans on the largest Balearic island. How do I know? Well,…
