With Super Bowl weekend right around the corner, lazy me just wants to plop down on the couch with a big bag of potato chips and be done with it. If you’re like me, and the thought of putting out a lavish spread has you feeling deflated, here’s five easy vegan snacks for the big game day.

Happy New Year! It’s hard to believe the holidays have come and gone, it all went by in such a blur. Time seems to speed up as I get older, when I was little, Christmas morning took forever to arrive. Now, I blink and it’s all over.

While on holiday, I had lunch at Ramen Yamadaya in San Francisco’s Japantown. After spending the morning at the Fairmont Hotel gawking at the life-sized gingerbread house*, I was more than ready for a piping hot bowl of vegan ramen.

So happy to have found another place to eat when visiting family down south along the central California coast. While everyone else was busy scarfing down breakfast at Old West Cinnamon Rolls in Pismo Beach, I spied a bunch of vegan options on the menu next door at the recently opened Graze Kitchen.

Since they don’t open until 10:00am on the weekends, I headed back over to pick up lunch after hanging out at the beach. I got the Chef’s Vegan Stack – grilled zucchini, eggplant, roasted red bell pepper with sun-dried tomato pesto, black olives and pepperoncini on fresh sourdough bread.

As I’m not much of a baker, I always feel a bit left out of all the baking and cookie making going on at this time of year. I don’t want to be a Grinch nor do I want to subject innocent, unsuspecting people to my novice baking. Thankfully, there’s no baking involved in making a graham cracker gingerbread house.

While most store-bought graham crackers contain honey, Nabisco Original Graham Crackers (in the red box) are vegan. For the frosting glue, you can use caramelized sugar or vegan royal icing. I went with the royal icing, that stuff works just like cement.
