Raw versus “Processed” Veganism

October 20, 2021

In July, we discussed three different diets and how they peacefully coexist with a vegan lifestyle. This month, we’re reviving that discussion to cover a similar topic: raw or processed food. What does each look like, and which is better; questions with answers that may surprise you! While this topic is usually coined as “raw vs. cooked”, it’s better to frame cooking as a form of processing, as many of the chemical processes involved overlap. Most people have a negative view of processed food products, and the term itself has a bad connotation. However, most vegan companies are health-conscious, and there are plenty of foods that are actually healthier post-process! There’s plenty to go over here, so let’s dive right in.

Dealing With Meal Burnout

September 23,2021

Amongst other things, the worldwide pandemic has been a logistical nightmare. We take for granted the importance of the supply chain and how its disruption can cause major problems in business and commerce. Some of us were hit harder than others: if you buy a lot of your produce from local sources, then you may have fared better than most. One way or another though, we’ve all felt the ripples of pandemic economy.

Three Vegan Ingredient Essentials

August 19, 2021

Whether you indulge in plant-based alternatives like Beyond Meat’s burgers, NU Food’s Queso, or start from raw ingredients to make your own meals, chances are you do a fair amount of cooking at home. While mainstream restaurants have come a long way in their vegan offerings, the one or two menu items offered get pretty stale after a while and a longing for that homecooked goodness grows just too great. If this sounds like you, then it may interest you to know that there are a few prized plant-based ingredients that sit high above what you may find in your common vegan kitchen

July 14, 2021

We all know that NU Food makes deliciously healthy snacks, but maybe you’re looking for a more comprehensive change to what you eat. If you’ve looked into one of the many popular diets floating around these days, then you may have encountered difficulties finding good plant-based recommendations.

Eating Vegan and Staying Athletic – Don’t Sweat It!

June 21, 2021

Summer is here again, and after a year of restrictive lockdowns, we’re all keen to get out there and enjoy some fun activities. Whether you have competitive sports or simple healthy living in mind (side note: our popcorn is the perfect tag-along snack for both of these!), exercise is a key part of leading a healthy life. For most, the health benefits are some of the main reasons behind eating vegan. However, difficulties can arise in maintaining a plant-based diet while staying active.

Organic, NU and You: A Guide 

April 19, 2021

If you’ve thought about cutting back on animal products in your diet, you’ve probably discovered just how many little things contain dairy that you didn’t even realize. With so much now going on our “do not eat” lists, it can all become a little overwhelming, but don’t get discouraged! Even if what seems like most items on our grocery shelves have hidden dairy ingredients, there are still plenty of plant-based dairy products out there, especially depending on where you shop—for example, all NU Food products, like our queso, only contain plant-based ingredients! 

The Vegan Renaissance

May 17, 2021

Last year, in the onset of a looming pandemic, small grocers and supermarkets alike suffered shortages of dozens of items. Ranging anywhere from toilet paper to computer parts, sudden scarcity in the wake of the coronavirus left many consumers scrambling to hoard what they could or find adequate substitutes. Fortunately, this has led to what some are referring to as a “vegan renaissance”. With meat industries struggling to satisfy demand, a resurging interest in plant-based products has business booming for companies providing alternatives to animal protein.

What's the Scoop on Plant-Based Cheese?

February 23, 2021

Many of us that are less familiar with plant-based foods often assume that cheese is a thing of the past for those that have chosen to abstain from the dairy-filled substance, or those with lactose allergies. On the contrary, those that stay away from lactose now enjoy a whole world of plant-based cheese that doesn't weigh on your conscious—or your bowels—when consuming.

Why Eat Vegan?

January 1, 2021

To begin, let’s talk about how eating vegan can benefit your body. Vegan foods are generally much more allergy-friendly, and never include any dairy or eggs, common allergens that often prevent people from eating items such as ice cream or queso. NU Food eliminates the need to avoid the queso on the dip table— our queso is 100% plant-based and completely edible for the many dairy-free folks out there.
