10 Tasty Chicken Recipes for Any Night of the Week

Pittsburgh is surprisingly a fun city to see as a tourist. It’s hilly and bridge-y and filled with good art. The natives, also known as Yinzers, are down to earth, sports fanatics, and like french fries in their sandwiches.

where to drink: Fathead’s 
Fatheads is the place to grab a great beer (or a few of them). They have 42 continually rotating taps and the food is tasty too.

where to sightsee: Gateway Clipper Cruise
The Allegheny and the Monongahela Rivers meet and form the Ohio River, creating the golden triangle that makes up downtown. Sit back and enjoy a laid back historical tour from the water.

Carrot Quinoa Tofu Scramble

Originally posted on Upon A Paper Plane:

Since going plant-based I’ll admit I miss my scrambled eggs on occasion. Scrambled tofu doesn’t exactly taste like scrambled eggs, but the texture is pretty convincing and with enough flavours and spices you’re practically there. I particularly love this his version of the popular egg breakfast substitute as it combines beans, greens and a grain for a well-rounded start to your day and the toasted sunflower seeds add a lovely crunch to the otherwise warm and hearty bowl.
