Name Change!

Hello, all! I've decided to change the name (and URL) of my blog to make it more omnivore-friendly. Shocking as it may seem, I am not so sure that everyone in the blogosphere knows what Tofurky is. I'll still be posting my usual vegetarian and vegan fare, but I'll be emphasizing the nutrition aspect of my blog. Nutrition classes start Monday!

For the record, here is my new URL: http://broccolihut.blogspot.com

PS Here's a quick explanation of the new name: My dad, being the comic genius that he is, used to tease my sisters and me by saying that he would take us to "Broccoli Hut" instead of Pizza Hut for dinner. It's funny, now I think I would prefer the former...

I always tell my boyfriend that if he doesn't tell me what he wants, I'm going to make him a bowl of broccoli for dinner. He doesn't like that.

Great new name!

What type of whole wheat noodles do you buy? the type I tried at whole foods did not taste good! And i usually like health food.

Also any favorite brands of pita and tortilla/wrap. The ones I see are either really high in calories or filled with artificial stuff.

Hi!

I have recently found your blog and am really impressed by the yummy looking food!

I think I would definitely prefer a meal at a Broccoli Hut to a Pizza Hut- broccoli goes with everything (especially tofu!)

Also you are right about Tofurky not being well known. I am a vegan living in the UK and there are only about 3 places across the whole country where you can buy it! I only heard about it via American blogs!

Hi! I'm a new vegan (to be) blogger, I added your blog to mine blogroll... Awesome new blog name ... hahaha, you should open up a vegan pizza place and call it "Broccoli Hut" hehehe! Have a great day nonetheless :0)

Cassie said...

Love the new name- I changed your blog name and url on my blogroll so thanks for letting me know.

ChocolateCoveredVegan said...

Haha you're so creative :o). I love the title.

I want to change my url too, but have been afraid to, because I don't want to lose readers. But you've inspired me, so hopefully I'll get around to it soon.

Good luck with transferring school!

Great new name!

foodfashionlife said...

I would've never gotten it if there wasn't an explanation haha but that is such a cute name!

Renee: I buy Hodgson Mill most of the time, but other brands are good too. I like Barilla's whole wheat version too.
Emma: Welcome to the blog! I'm always glad to have new commenters.
I didn't even think about how Tofurky might be unknown to overseas readers. Thanks for the heads up!
Cecilia: Thanks for adding me to your blogroll! I can't wait to check out your blog as well. Opening up a vegan pizza place sounds like an excellent idea:)
CCV: Yep, I was nervous about changing the URL for the same reason--I don't want people to think I just quit blogging! As you can probably tell, I just went around to all my favorite blogs and wrote a quick message with my new URL. Hopefully people will figure out that I've made the switch!
Everyone: Thanks for taking the time to note the new name! Extra thanks to those of you who also updated your blog rolls--that makes the transition so much easier!

Renee said...

Thanks. I was also curious what your favorite brands of pita and tortilla/wrap. The ones I see are either really high in calories or filled with artificial stuff. Thanks again.

veggiewrap said...

love the new name. it's so cute and fitting.

I love your blog and was happy when i found that you didn't just quit but changed the name! =D

ChickPea said...

Renee: Sorry, I didn't mean to ignore your other question. For pitas I use Ezekiel brand (100 Cals) or Toufayan whole wheat (140 Cals). I haven't really found a favorite tortilla yet. I like Rudi's Organics and Ezekiel's (both 150 Cals), but if I am looking for something with fewer Calories I like Target brand. Hope that helps!
VeggieWrap: Glad you'll continue reading!

Broccoli is the best. Glad you let me know about the change!

Meg Wolff said...

This is really a great name change. I don't know what your blog name was before, but I was perusing blogs and thought I'd come to visit since I LOVE the name. I agree with you ... I'd rather go to the "Broccoli Hut". Hmmm ... a fantastic name for a veg restaurant! I added you to my blogroll too.

ChickPea said...

Meg: Glad to have you as a reader! I just checked out your website, and I found lots of great links. Thanks!
