There are foodies, and then there are food fanatics. I do not consider myself a foodie, but I certainly do consider myself a food fanatic.

Foodies relish keeping up with all the endless food trends. Foodies can’t seem to get enough braised pork belly and kale. Foodies will dutifully stand in line for hours for a taste of a Cronut.

But food fanatics are a horse of another color. We love food just as much as foodies, and we are equally, if not more, dedicated to the pursuit of delicious bites. But the food in which we are interested doesn’t trend on Twitter or light up your RSS feed. It’s not about how new or “in” something is. It’s not about the marketing or the presentation; it’s simply about how good it tastes.

Easy Vegan Substitutions

On Log On & Eat with Eden Grinshpan, Eden travels the country to meet the most outrageous and original food bloggers and social media stars who invite her to devour their favorite dishes. We connected with them to pick their brains and score some exclusive advice and tips.

Every non-vegan in the world seems to be asking: “What are a bunch of easy substitutions I can use to make vegan versions of the dishes I love and have them taste exactly the same?”

I have some good news and some bad news for you: Sometimes it works perfectly, and sometimes a substitution can be great but just different than the taste of the meat or dairy it’s trying to emulate.

First, substitutions that taste great but not necessarily exactly the same:

SusieCakes will become your new favorite spot the second you take that first bite. Susan Sarich is making everything from scratch, inspired by both her grandmothers’ recipes. These cakes, cookies and cupcakes are remarkable — we will go so far as to say the best cupcakes in town. Their dedication to making everything from scratch using the finest ingredients is appreciated in every bite. You know the old saying, “a cupcake a day…”? Okay, there’s no such saying, but we just want a cupcake from SusieCakes EVERY DAY.

Honey’s Kettle-Fried Chicken is serving up some of the best fried chicken in town. They’re frying it up in a kettle! What the hell does that mean, you ask? Well, that’s what we said. It’s basically an old-school technique that allows them to fry the chicken at crazy high temperatures to ensure a beautifully crisp outside with a moist nongreasy inside. Oh, and the biscuits are NOT to be missed. In fact, pick up a few extra for home — trust us.

5 Healthy Pantry Staples to Keep Stocked

On Log On & Eat with Eden Grinshpan, Eden travels the country to meet the most outrageous and original food bloggers and social media stars who invite her to devour their favorite dishes. We connected with them to pick their brains and score some exclusive advice and tips.

First of all, I recommend to all my friends that they find a farmers market in their neighborhood, because the beauty of healthy cooking is that when you eat locally, seasonally and sustainably, you are making healthy choices. Our bodies understand the seasons and also understand the foods that are ingested in season. In the summertime, lighter foods are available and it is what the body wants in hot weather. If you are curious about eating more raw food, summer is the time to try it out, as that is the season when your body will best benefit from it. Fresh watermelons, berries, peaches and greens of all kinds can be grilled and eaten outside as often as possible. In the fall we eat more root vegetables and asparagus; making soups, braising, roasting and sauteing is what you do with the produce that is grown in the fall. Bobby and I sear and saute with organic coconut oil because it is an oil that can take high heat, and we use olive oil for dressings, marinades and pestos. Below are five ingredients we recommend you have in your kitchen:

Mmmm. Sugar.

According to experts, sweet is the first taste that humans prefer from birth. But it’s also extremely addictive. In fact, one study found that sugar is more addictive than cocaine.

Unfortunately, eating too much candy and sugar can result in weight gain, metabolic disorders (a precursor to diabetes) and even some forms of cancer. In other words, it’s not good — and most of us are getting way more sugar than the recommended daily limit.

Breaking a sugar habit isn’t easy. But it’s possible. And these tips will help:

You know when you’re watching the Cooking Channel and they are featuring great food from all over the United States and you think to yourself, one day I have to make it out there to try that? For those of us who consider ourselves food fanatics, we always want to try the best of the best no matter where it is. Well, as a truck driver, I have the unique opportunity to travel the United States and experience some of the best cuisine this country has to offer while doing my job of keeping America moving. Here are a few of my top picks of places you just have to experience if you’re a food fanatic like me:

1) Just Oxtails  — Houston
This place feels like going to your grandma’s house for Sunday dinner. Everything I’ve ever tried here is delicious and has that authentic soul food taste that you can’t really get anywhere other than down South. As the name states, one of their specialties is tender meaty oxtails, which are a must-try. However, their menu changes daily, serving up everything from smothered pork chops, fried chicken and meatloaf to turkey wings, fried catfish and even meatballs. An extensive selection of homemade sides like candied yams, mac and cheese, and greens finish off your meal to make it an experience you will not soon forget!

Every time I’m asked to suggest beers to anyone I struggle because we all come from different backgrounds and people tend to be most picky about what they drink. Depending on your region, the season or your palette, you may hate one or all of the beers on this list. To reveal my own bias, I most often drink sour beers, stouts and porters. And while I enjoy a really good IPA, it’s not my go-to style. Here are a few of my picks that span the spectrum of hoppy to malty to unusual.

Live Oak Brewing Company: HefeWeizen

HefeWeizens are great German-style beers that are easy drinking, especially in the Texas Heat (#shoutout). Named after the German term for wheat beers (weissbier), Live Oak HefeWeizen has a strong banana and clove flavors with a crisp finish. This is the beer that changed my outlook on craft beer and will be one I drink for life. The catch is, you can only get it in bars or at the brewery because they do not bottle or can it (yet). Look out for the classic Live Oak wooden tap handle next time you are in the Lone Star State.
