My New Favorite Food: Farro!


Farro is a whole grain, and although that makes it not a gluten-free food, it is easily becoming one of my favorite things to eat. In my opinion, farro is a fluffier, chewier brown rice with a bit more substance. It takes about the same amount of time to cook but when I have the time, I’ll make a big batch and store it in the fridge for the week so that it’s always readily available.

Vegan On-the-Go

I think that one of the toughest things about being vegan is that I instantly have a panic attack when I’m not within 25 feet of my kitchen (my apartment is that small). Not being able to cook my own food, or have access to my own pantry is really difficult when eating vegan. I am very limited in terms of vegan options aside from making things myself, which I’m certain is a struggle for lots of people. Unless you live in a health-crazed city like New York or Los Angeles, chances are that you don’t have vegan eateries and cafes that specialize in fresh juices on every block of your town. Because of this, I have had to figure out how I can easily stock my purse with food without carrying around my entire kitchen and without taking up too much time during my morning routine (I hate mornings and getting up even earlier is not my thing). Below you will find a list of pantry staples, tips on how to easily transport food, and how to always be prepared to be stranded somewhere that doesn’t have vegan food.
