This makes me so happy! My dear friend Kim D'eon is the editor in chief at Vista Magazine and she came over one afternoon to cook with me and shoot this feature. I'm so happy with how it turned out and thrilled that her curiosity to explore the spiritual side of my vegan lifestyle and how it all works together ended up in print!

To celebrate the release of the new hot for food cookbook, Vegan Comfort Classics: 101 Recipes to Feed Your Face, I popped on over to visit my girl Tracy at Cityline in Toronto. I showed her how to make the creamy, delectable bacon mac & cheese from the book and I'm pretty sure I wowed her. I mean who wouldn't be impressed with so many varieties of vegan bacon. Watch the segment below!
I was so thrilled to be invited to The Morning Show on Global TV in Toronto to reveal the cookbook cover for Vegan Comfort Classics: 101 Recipes to Feed Your Face! I also fed host, Liem Vu, some of my fave recipes from the book including bacon mac & cheese, bbq pulled pork sandwiches, and southern fried cauliflower. He was so into the food he let me host the segment, pretty much...haha... WATCH BELOW!
As if this year wasn't awesome enough already! Today you can get Gene Baur's new book "Living the Farm Sanctuary Life" and we just happen to have a recipe in it.
This next sentence isn't even going to make sense. Our recipe will be in the book alongside 99 others from the likes of Chloe Coscarelli, Emily Deschanel, and Moby. Exsqueeze me?! Ya, we don't even believe it ourselves. The book has more than just delicious vegan recipes, it will also offer inspiring, practical guidelines on how to incorporate the Farm Sanctuary lifestyle into everyday life.
The book is available to order here and we'd love to see a pic if you already have it in hand. We're waiting for ours to be delivered any day now!
You can watch Gene's interview with Jon Stewart on The Daily Show last night promoting the book and talking all about the environmental benefits of going vegan and the impact this lifestyle change has on our health.
Now check this out! In 2011 I met Gene Baur (and fan-girled) for the first time at an event called 10,000 tastes 10 billion reasons at Yonge & Dundas Square where coincidentally they were giving away free veggie dogs. That's how Gene first started his activism by selling veggie dogs out of a VW van! Now I'm in his cook book... life is crazy.
hot for food is giving you a chance to win a signed copy of this amazing new cookbook from author, vegan athlete, and the creator of Vega, Brendan Brazier. Brendan has helped changed the way millions of people eat including, me, Lauren Toyota. When I found out about Brendan and Vega in 2009 it helped jump-start my transition into veganism.
The Thrive Energy Cookbook is all about eating a balanced plant based whole food diet. It has recipes that are vegan, gluten-free, and specific ones for people transitioning into a more plant based lifestyle. The photos are pretty incredible too!
To enter, we want you to try out one of the recipes on our blog, post the pic to instagram, and tag @hotforfood. And you don't have to be vegan! You can be vegan curious or just like trying new recipes. We'll give you some ideas to start. I know people have been testing out our cauliflower buffalo wings. Or you could try a simple and fresh smoothie in the morning. And for those of you with a sweet tooth, bake up a batch of our favourite chocolate cranberry oatmeal cookies. Have fun and John and I can't wait to see your posts!
