Snack and Story Time with ‘Not a Nugget,’ by Stephanie Dreyer

Snack and Story Time with ‘Not a Nugget,’ by Stephanie Dreyer

Once upon a time, there was a bag of Beanfields chips and a bowl of caramelized onion dip! 

It’s snack and story time with vegan blogger and author, Stephanie Dreyer (aka VeegMama).  Her newest children’s book, “Not a Nugget,” shows kids that animals are friends, not food, and suggests plant-based meal ideas to traditional kid favorites. Today, she’s sharing her take on a classic onion dip that we think pairs perfectly with Beanfields White Bean Sea Salt Chips.

Cozy up with a bowl of this dip, a bag of Beanfields White Bean Chips, and a good book for a snack and story time too delicious to miss!

New Mexican Hatch Green Chile Stew

New Mexican Hatch Green Chile Stew

Reed and I love getting out of the city and spending time in the desert. Our favorite pastimes are searching for rocks in the desert (we are rockhounds!) and cooking great plant-based meals after a hard day in the desert. Here is a recipe that I tossed together impromptu with ingredients we were lucky enough to have in the kitchen.  I love cooking Southwestern and chuck wagon-style foods while we are at our desert camp. It really suites the surroundings and sets the mood - especially when cooked over and served around the camp fire.

Goodbye, Sweet Lisa Shapiro

Goodbye, Sweet Lisa Shapiro

By Roy Glidden, Beanfields Co-founder and Executive Vice President of Sales

Goodbye, sweet Lisa Shapiro. One of the kindest people I have ever met. I met her in the mid 90's while she was the Corporate Vitamin & Beauty Care Coordinator for Wild Oats Market. I later found out she was a champion for animal rights and a plant-based diet. She selflessly donated her time to these causes helping to educate others on how we can live a more compassionate and sustainable lifestyle. May we all be kind and live our lives with the knowledge that life is a gift, it is short and can be taken away in an instant.
