    FOLLOW A FOODIE: Cooking with squash | Food-And-Drink | Lifestyles

    If your kitchen is like mine the lowly butternut squash often sits at the back of the countertop patiently waiting for its time to come to the table. It is not that I don’t love squash, but when so many other items are more perishable than it, squash becomes the vegetable of necessity when the fridge is empty. Yet for its willingness to wait, every time I cook with it, I remember how giving it is on the table. In my latest Behind the Brew article, I serve up a baking spice and bacon squash soup and delicious vegetarian   Read More

    Eat your greens: Plant-based eating on campus | Lifestyles

    Virginia Tech Dining Services is known for being one of the nation’s best campus dining experiences. What makes it even better is that it strives to be sustainable by sourcing its food locally, composting and offering reusable to-go containers when possible. Another big way the school could strive to help the environment is by offering more plant-based dishes.  People following a vegan diet consume no food that comes from animals, such as meat, eggs or dairy products. Vegetarian diets are followed by people who do not eat meat, but sometimes consume eggs or dairy products. About 3.5{c33c21346ff5e26ab8e0ae3d29ae4367143f0d27c235e34c392ea37decdb8bed} of   Read More

It’s gourd season. As such, my culinary dreams are currently filled with warming scents of baking spices and exotic flavours that will transform these seemingly mild-flavoured fruit (yes, apparently botanically speaking they are fruit –not vegetables) into robust seasonal dishes.

    Haile Thomas wrote more than a cookbook. It’s a life guide. | Lifestyles

    “Our well-being goes so far beyond what’s on our plate,” she said. “You can eat however many salads or smoothies you want but that’s not going to heal a lot of the inner and external disturbances that we might face.” The writing is thoughtful, generous and fun, with Thomas prone to drop zippy lines like “If you know, you know,” “You’ve got this” and “Anyhooo.” “Living Lively” also gets a little interactive with blank pages for readers to think about their lives and make action plans. And it includes interviews with five other female Gen Z leaders. When Cassie Jones,   Read More
