Millions of people around the world are rising up against police brutality and other acts of violence against people of color. We are enraged by and mourn the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and countless others. We stand in solidarity with the movement for racial justice and ending systemic racism. We urge everyone to take daily actions and join others who are committed to bringing about racial justice and equity.

Based on the city of Farmington’s current moratorium on large events, the recent executive orders, and the latest health and safety guidelines, we are unfortunately unable to move forward with hosting this year’s Free Festival originally planned for September 13 in downtown Farmington. Although we are disappointed we won’t be able to enjoy vegan food favorites and live music together this year, the health and safety of attendees, vendors, and volunteers is our top priority.
The Free Festival highlights include a selection of delicious plant-based foods, sustainable shopping, live music, and more!

Tofu, tofu, oh tofu. It might look boring at first but in reality, the blank slate of tofu offers the cook endless flavor possibilities! Because of this, having a few go-to marinade recipes in your back pocket gives you the power to turn this flavorless block of soybeans into a super delicious and protein packed meal.
Here are just three of all possible marinade recipes. Try them out as they are or play around and tweak them to your personal preference. Good thing is that they are quick and easy to put together so if you don’t like what you first test out, just try and try again.
This recipe is about as Pure Michigan as it gets: gooey fudge that melts in your mouth and rich chocolate coats your palette as you bite into this perfect plant-based fudge.
With only five ingredients, you are going to love this vegan DIY Mackinac Fudge. The texture is similar to fudge made with dairy and the flavor is phenomenal. Don’t worry, you will not be using those long paddles or folding your fudge for hours over marble. This recipe is straight from the double boiler to cool.
This month, I wanted to write about some health and wellness specifics that are super important. Recently, I re-read the book The Blue Zones by Dan Buettner, and I want to use some principles from his book to guide us through this post. Dan spent years doing research on five areas around the world where people are known to live exceptionally long, healthy lives. He discovered nine common patterns that we will begin to discuss throughout this post.
