I love Thai food so much but I don’t live close to good Thai places. If I want to eat high quality, authentic Thai cuisine, I have to venture out to the Northeast part of the city, which I am happy to do in warmer temperatures, but in the winter, I just want to eat delicious vegan red thai curry in the comfort of my own home.

Veganuary and Dry January are just a few of the goals people have been undertaking as a means of cleansing, changing, renewing, and growing. How hard is it to cut something out of your diet or to radically transform your diet and your relationship with food? While everyone may not become a sober vegan, there are many dietary changes people are undertaking – perhaps you are trying to cut meat out or eat smaller portions…
Lifestyle changes simply do not happen overnight. With many other lifestyle changes I have made over the years, changing my dietary habits has been slow, which, I must add, benefits me tremendously because it always gives me adequate time for self-reflection. Moreover, going at a slow pace helps me to truly let go of the habits so that I won’t re-acquire them in the future.
Decolonizing Our Diets, Nourishing our Souls: Interview with Keon Dillon, Founder of Millennial Soul Food
I had the amazing opportunity to sit down with Keon Dillon, Founder of Millennial Soul Food, which is a spiritual, life-coaching, tarot project based in Chicago but practiced all over the country. Keon is a dynamic and innovative Chicagoan who has thought deeply and comprehensively about food and our relationship to it for a very long time.
I love Chinese food but unfortunately the more fast/convenient Chinese food places tend to be high in sodium without fresh vegetables. This recipe is also based off of my mom’s Chinese food recipes. What I love about this dish is that it is hearty, delicious, and affordable! I am all about the sauces and I love this garlic sauce!
This recipe emerged from necessity. I was 19, broke, a vegan, and in college. I needed something cheap, quick, healthy, and abundant. This recipe has become a staple of mine and I still eat it throughout the week many times. It has staying power. It’s easy to make and yields a lot of food. I usually like to make this on Sunday night in preparation for the week.
Katherine Anne Confections is a cute, small cafe in Logan Square that has a fabulous assortment of chocolate truffles, candies, hot chocolates, and surprisingly sandwiches. After being gifted a box of chocolate truffles from here, I can’t go back to eating truffles that can be found at Walgreens even though that makes me sound super bourgie. These truffles are fresh and heavenly. They have unique combinations like goat cheese walnut, which literally melt in your mouth.
Spice Room finally graced the Logan Square restaurant scene in the spring of 2016. It’s a small, quaint restaurant with club music, pretty decorations and lights, and a very attentive staff. The service is consistently friendly, quick, and on top of things. The older gentleman is always excellent with those water refills, which is necessary if you are sensitive to spice.
If you want an intimate dinner with exemplary service and outstanding food, then Boka is a perfect option. My significant other surprised me by taking me here and it was such an amazing culinary experience. One of the best of my life.
I came here with a group of friends on a Wednesday night and had high expectations. My high expectations were fulfilled! I love Thai food and can’t get enough of it. Unfortunately, there really isn’t great Thai food in the Wicker Park/Logan Square area so I am willing to travel far for it, but we really need some better options around here.
