Since today is World Vegetarian Day, and since I LOVE being a vegetarian, I thought I’d celebrate by sharing links to some of my fave go-to veg recipes. Some have been seen here on bust.com before because they were too delicious to keep to myself. And some are appearing here for the first time even though I eat ‘em up every chance I get. Read More
Here at BUST, “isms” hold a prominent place in my daily mental landscape. Feminism is the reason I’ve shown up to work (relatively) bright-eyed and bushy-tailed for the last 12 years. And while I always put that particular ism at the forefront of everything I do, my opposition to other entrenched social isms, like racism, classism, and sizeism also plays a significant role in how I perceive and report on the world. It wasn’t until I went vegan four years ago, however, that my consciousness was raised about another ism—speciesism. Read More
In the summer of 2011, Kristin Lajeunesse left her nine to five job, sold or donated most of her personal belongings, ended a long-term relationship, purchased and renovated a sports van, and hit the road on a quest to dine at and document every vegan restaurant in America on her blog Will Travel For Vegan Food. Now, 1 book deal, 48 states, 500+ vegan eateries, and over 35,000 miles later, Lajeunesse’s life-changing journey is finally coming to an end. And to celebrate this milestone, she’s hosting a fundraising party in N.Y.C. Read More

I LOVE cereal—especially in the summer, when I’d rather chew glass than turn on a stove. But when cruising the aisles of my supermarket, it’s rare that I can actually find a brand that I want to eat. Often there’s something pesky in each ingredients list that keeps me from closing the deal (like gluten, added sugar, animal products, or icky chemical preservatives) and I’m left with nothing to pack my bowl.  That’s why I was so psyched to find this quick and easy recipe for Muesli in The China Study Cookbook by Leanne Campbell, PhD.

OMG it FINALLY feels like springtime here in N.Y.C.! Yesssss! That means I’ve officially retired my parka for the season, have resumed stealing my boyfriend’s hoodie as outerwear, and am now salivating over salads instead of the soups and stews that got me through the colder months. Truth be told, I wasn’t always a salad person. I was one of those vegetarians who basically lived on different iterations of starch and cheese. And then when I went vegan, I moved heaven and earth in search of the most succulent veggie meat sandwiches. Read More
Hummus is a pretty big deal here at BUST HQ. In an office full of varied tastes and dietary restrictions, a tasty chickpea dip is always a featured crowd pleaser at all our birthday celebrations and intern-last-day parties. And if our crowded staff fridge is any indication, a few of us are definitely toting in samples of Sabra and tubs of Trader Joe’s at least twice a week. As easy as it is to buy, however, northing beats the flavor of fresh, homemade hummus. Read More
As a percussionist, I've been obsessed with Tom Tom, the only magazine in the world dedicated to female drummers, since it started rocking my world back in 2010. It's got some killer content, ranging from interviews with inspiring musicians to recipes from the road. But one constant that makes every issue super extra special is the beautiful portraiture supplied by Tom Tom's head photographer, Bex Wade. Read More
There’s been a lot of water-cooler chat at BUST HQ these days about chia seeds. I first got hooked on ‘em when I started slurping them down in my favorite bottled kombucha drink. But once I began reading about how great they are for detoxifying the body, and how awesomely nutritious they are—they’ve got more omega-3s than salmon! Plus decent amounts of calcium, protein, fiber, and potassium!—I wanted to work them into my eating routine even more. Read More
Every once in a while, a cookbook will make its way into BUST HQ that makes me go, Holy Shit! I need to make something in here IMMEDIATELY! This was definitely the case when I got a look at The Lotus and the Artichoke, a gorgeous new recipe compendium by Justin P. Moore.  An amalgam of Moore’s three main passions: travel, photography, and vegan cooking, Lotus dazzles with over 100 exotic recipes culled from time spent in over 40 countries. And unlike most cookbooks on the market these days, it doesn’t skimp on the visuals. Read More
