White Gloved Vegan

White Gloved Vegan is a movement to break stereotypes associated with veganism and inspire others to adapt a plant-based lifestyle. The “white glove” signifies that a vegan can be a class act high standing individual and not be ridiculed for going against society norms. Articles are written by founders Brittany Kruse and Alex Miller.

For those in need of dairy-free, vegetarian or vegan options, imagine this scenario: You are rolling up to your local Timmy Ho’s drive-thru window to place an order for a meatless sausage sandwich with a dairy-free iced cappuccino. Well believe it because this is real and it’s happening right before our eyes! Currently, 30 Tim Hortons locations in Buffalo carry soy milk so now you can indulge in lattes, cappuccinos, and a simple iced coffee. Right across the Canadian border, Tim Hortons recently launched their vegetarian and vegan sandwiches in collaboration with Beyond Meat. So knowing us, we of course…

If you’re already immersed into the ‘vegan scene’ in Buffalo, you are most likely able to find a vegan dish within 10 miles of wherever you are. With that being said, not all vegan food is created equal which is why we compiled our top 10 vegan eats of WNY that you must try… whether you’re vegan or not! If you’re new to the word vegan, it simply means food made without meat or dairy. And no… it’s not just salad! To your surprise, not a single salad has made the list. We are not certified food critics by any…

If you’re surprised by all the Buffalo vegan mumbo jumbo becoming more mainstream these days, brace yourself because we are showing you the next level of health and its headquarters is located right here in Buffalo… The words “plant-based” and “vegan” have been tossed around quite a bit these days, and another terminology is making an appearance. Cue the raw vegan diet. We have been vegan for over a year now and up until January 2019 we weren’t too familiar with that way of eating or what it even consisted of. In our minds, we were eating pretty healthy by…

‘Tis the season Buffalo friends! If you haven’t been living under a rock for the past decade, you will notice that there is an abundance of non-dairy milks now available including almond, rice, cashew, coconut and soy. Lucky for us, many of the companies that produce these specialty milks have come out with holiday nog… Yes that’s right! We are kicking off our 1st holiday edition blog post by telling you which non-dairy nog is worth your hard earned money. By definition, eggnog is a specialty drink made up of beaten eggs, cream, and optional alcohol. Something that you may…

So I bet you’re wondering…what do vegans and vegetarians feast upon on Thanksgiving? Well a year ago, we were wondering the same thing and came across meat-less turkeys…yes, it’s a thing. We ended up purchasing a couple popular brands so we wouldn’t be missing out on those Thanksgiving feels. If you’re vegetarian, vegan, or just want to lessen your meat consumption this holiday season, we have the insider’s knowledge below. These are similarly stocked on the shelves during the holidays along with the standard American classics.  All are frozen so that you can purchase now for later, require little to…

Fall is officially here and we ‘DONUT’ know about you, but there’s one particular food that we always associate with this season… warm, fresh donuts. Before going vegan, our weekends would consist of taking a drive to Mayor Brother’s Cider Mill and getting a couple donuts to be washed down by a gallon of apple cider. Nowadays, the apple cider is still okay in our book but donuts… not so much. The average donut contains three of the ingredients that we shy away from… milk, eggs, and butter. But to our relief, there is such a thing as a vegan…

I scream, you scream, we all scream for dairy-free ice cream! The days of avoiding ice cream parlors due to being vegan are officially over. We at White Gloved Vegan have made it a point to try and go to as many ice cream places in Buffalo this summer and haven’t even hit them all yet. The soy savior that most ice cream shops now offer is called ‘temptation soft serve’ ice cream. It is an all-natural, non-GMO verified, dairy-free, nut-free soft serve ice cream produced by Chicago Vegan Foods. More reasons to try this sweet treat is that it’s…

If you haven’t heard of the “Beyond Meat” burger yet then you are in for a treat…or should we say burger! This is truly the summer of the Beyond Meat burger and we have all the “grilling” details. Prior to our going vegan a little over a year ago, Alex was a huge meat eater and loved a good burger like any typical American. Our first summer eating 100% vegan, he experienced some withdrawals, so when we heard of the launch of the Beyond Meat burger (and got our hands on two), we knew the game officially changed. This plant-based…

There is traditional American food and then there is Buffalo’s holy grail of food and it’s no surprise that chicken wings or should we say, Buffalo wings, are at the top of that coveted list.  We thought what better way to start off our monthly ‘White Gloved Vegan’ feature on Buffalo Rising than with a vegan Buffalo wing segment. Within this piece, we will answer the three W’s…What is it, Where can you find it, and Why within WNY. In addition to our post, we are instituting “White Gloved Wednesdays” which is piggybacking off of the endlessly popular “Taco Tuesday”…
