From Vegan to Kosher and Kosher to Vegan

It is not often thought about by vegans or those that keep kosher, but to become a kosher-vegan is not difficult at all.

Food Trucks: A PheNOMenon

I recently paid a visit to San Francisco’s Off the Grid (OTG), my first food truck rally. And in all my years being a dedicated foodie I’d never experienced anything like it.

The idea of a Kosher breakfast might inspire images of a plain bagel or fruit bowl, but that’s simply not the case. The options for a great kosher breakfast go way beyond that and you non-believers are about to be converted.

So what, you may ask, goes into a delicious kosher breakfast? Here’s something to get your mouth watering…
