I love when classic burger joints such as Gott's roadside start to adapt to a more plant-based friendly menu. I have been going to this place since I was a kid - the original place in St. Helena which was formally known as Taylor's. My grandparents would drive me all the way up to St. Helena from Napa on hot summer days just to get a burger and a black and white milkshake. If anything screams summer nostalgia for me it would a black and white shake. And for those who don't know what a black and white shake is well let me tell you all about this dreamy shake. It is a hand spun vanilla shake with chocolate syrup dripping down the sides. So it is amazing. Not vegan of course. But I was a kid that could handle the dairy at the time - barely.
Vegan on the Menu.
Gott's is one of those classic burger joints where you can count on the garlic fries being delicious every time, always getting a cheesy bacon filled burger and a thick creamy shake. So I was excited to see there re-vamped menu over the weekend in which now has a plethora of vegan options! And they are totally open to making modifications on the menu according to food allergies and dietary preferences.
Of course the infamous impossible burger is on the menu! The Impossible burger patty made entirely from plants, has american cheese (opt off for vegans), lettuce, tomatoes, pickles & secret sauce (opt off for vegans) on a toasted egg bun or you can get it on a lettuce wrap. Everyone has been talking about the impossible burger because it bleeds similarly to regular meat and quite frankly the taste is pretty darn close. What makes it different from its veggie burger predecessors is that it’s meant to entice meat-eaters and it sure does taste just like a regular burger!
Salads and Sides
One of the newest additions that I was most excited about is there falafel salad - arugula, tomatoes, cucumber & quinoa tossed with lemon tahini dressing & topped with spiced, fried chickpeas, avocado, feta (opt-off for vegan), pickled beets & falafel. As a vegan we are well acquainted with hummus and middle-eastern flavors so when I see salads encompassing these flavors I am always excited to try them out. The pickled veggies really help balance out and add additional flavors to the chickpea so that was a nice touch. Additionally if you are trying to take a healthier route and stay away from their wicked good sweet potato fries you can try out there new fresh veggies and hummus which includes raw carrots, cucumber & bell pepper served with organic hummus. I wholeheartedly support the company’s mission of sourcing local and creating California-inspired foods so next time you are in Napa, St. Helena or SF be sure to check them out!
Hi friends! You’re about to read a post sponsored by Siren Snacks. As always I’ll share what I really think.
I’ve been a total fan of this super cute company for a while, way before they reached out to me. They’re a plant-based snack company that makes sweets that are actually healthy.
Their protein bites are all handmade with simple ingredients that are always grain-free, refined sugar-free, GMO free, soy free, and gluten-free too. And yet somehow they’re sooooo delicious. Amazing, right?
Long story short (because yes I can talk about sweets for a long time ha!!), they’re literally the perfect sweet substitute for my afternoon sugar cravings. A whole packet is only 200 cal with quality ingredients in it, so I actually can have my cake and eat it too.
Plus their marketing is amazing on their packaging and I just love them. So just like always, keep reading to get my real honest opinions plus some helpful tips.
Ok, enough fan girling haha. Thanks Siren Snacks!
Ok. Before I get into all the delicious details of Siren, I want to talk about sweet cravings. We all get them (me especially), but there’s a reason behind it. Your body is trying to tell you something.
While your cravings could be for a variety of reasons, here are some things to think about:
Why you are craving sweets
1. You’re stressed out (or tired)
We’ve all had stress. It’s not comfortable mentally, of course. But it’s not comfortable physically either. So your body is going to try to find a way to fix it, stat. Queue the sugar cravings…
If you’re tired, it’s pretty much the same story. Both stress and fatigue wear you down.
Your body will respond by looking for quick pick me ups, whether you know it or not. And weirdly, being tired has a chemical effect on your body that tricks you into thinking you’re hungry when you’re not!! Can we say “cruel”?
Try to remind yourself in these moments that coffee is a great energy booster with zero sugar. Unless it’s night time, and then an herbal tea will do wonders for you. My favorites are ginger when I’m in the mood for spice and chamomile when I’m looking for something soothing.
2. You’ve got low blood sugar or iron levels
This is a huge problem for women. One way to combat it is by tweaking your diet. The power of whole foods to cure our ailments is real. Luckily pomegranate seeds and leafy greens have huge amounts of iron in them and they’re easy to work into smoothies or other foods you’re probably eating already.
If your blood sugar is low, check in with yourself.
Are you eating frequently enough?
Are you eating too many carbs or processed foods?
Or maybe it’s the opposite. You’ve gone so hard on no carbs that your body has started craving sweets.
I’m all about reducing carb intake, but make sure you’re still eating natural sources like sweet potato, green beans and carrots. This will help your body to function at its best, which means more energy and less sweet cravings.
3. YOur gut bacteria is out of whack
This can happen for so many reasons. It’s weird because you actually want to have bacteria in your gut... but it’s got to be the good kind.
If bad bacteria starts to take over, you can run into all kinds of serious issues (bloating, gas, constipation, and lots of other not so cute symptoms). One thing that can really help here is incorporating probiotics or fermented foods like sauerkraut into your daily routine.
If you’ve been sick recently and were on antibiotics, this could be the cause as well. If this sounds like you, consider talking to a naturopath.
4. You’re sad :(
Nobody’s immune to feeling down. But if you’re going through a rough patch and your sugar cravings are peaking, this could be your body’s way of trying to cheer you up. Why? Because sugar releases serotonin, our natural happiness hormone.
If this sounds like you, first of all, *hug*.
Second of all, try reaching for tofu, pineapple, or walnuts, or get outdoors for some sun. Jogging will give you the benefit of exercise and sunshine - win win!
If you really want to help yourself, go for that jog outside and within 30 minutes of getting back home, eat a small snack made up of one of those serotonin boosting foods I just mentioned.
5. You’re not eating enough protein
This is hard for so many people, especially vegans. There are so many benefits to veganism, but you need to be methodical to make sure your body is getting all the nutrients it needs.
If you think this could be you, try adding more nuts and seeds to your routine. These are easy to blend into your morning smoothies (almond or cashew milk + nut butter + flax or chia seeds + leafy greens and berries = DELICIOUS!).
I love having daal because it’s yummy, protein-heavy, international and so easy to make. Beans are great too and work well with all kinds of meals. Mushrooms are a super fast protein rich veggie I love eating raw or cooked.
While I always recommend looking at your diet to see how you can improve, sometimes you just want something sweet and that’s all there is to it. So that’s where Siren comes in.
I really like their story. You can read it here. It all started with Elizabeth’s autoimmune diagnosis. An autoimmune diagnosis is what started my vegan journey, so I immediately identified with her. Plus they focus on protein (which we already know is a possible sugar craving culprit) from a plant-based source: peas!
And literally on their website they say “the future will be powered by plants.” Don’t you just love that????
Elizabeth is amazing because she sent me literally every flavor they have to try: Snickerdoodle, Dark Chocolate Brownie, Cookie Dough and Lemon Poppyseed.
My favorite was Cookie Dough because I LOVE chocolate chip cookies. They’re totally my weakness haha and my go to sugar craving in the afternoons. But I never indulge in cc cookies because of the high fat / gluten. So it’s nice to have a snack in the afternoon like Siren that pairs perfectly with my coffee and feels indulgent.
I also really like the Poppyseed because I love poppyseed muffins and scones which once again I NEVER EAT, haha man! My fiancé Matt loves the brownie one since brownies are his weakness.
Protein ball recipe
These bites also work really well in homemade protein ball recipes. Hey do you remember last year when we made these with Abrah? Here is the recipe from my original blog post. I’ve been playing around to find the perfect combination. I think I’ve found just the right combo of ingredients:
Mix all ingredients in a food processor or highest powered blender until fine and able to form a ball.
Transfer to a bowl, and roll into small 1 inch balls.
Fridge for about 10 minutes, then roll in extra cacao powder.
Store in air tight container and keep chilled.
But that’s what’s perfect for me… everyone’s taste buds are different. So just like there’s no perfect smoothie recipe, there’s no perfect protein ball recipe either. Play around with it to find your dream combo, remembering to keep it as low sugar as possible.
PS - Isn’t Harley the cutest??? Love her <3 Thanks trainer Teal for sharing your pup.
how do you deal with your cravings?
So lovelies - now you know what I do when sweet cravings strike. I try to prevent them by making sure my diet meets my needs nutritionally.
But it’s not possible to be perfect all the time, which is why I’m so happy Siren is around. I get to be bad and good all at once.
So tell me - what are your favorite ways to beat your sugar cravings?
Special thanks to Talia Chakraborty
Hi! You’re about to read a post sponsored by Beanfields Snacks, chock full with helpful tips and honest opinions, just like always. Thanks Beanfields!
We’ve all been there, there’s no shame in it. And I am currently in Mexico where chips and guacamole are a staple in the diet! (Notice how I am in fact eating a bellpepper with the delicious guacamole). Sometimes it’s just impossible to resist the salty, crunchy deliciousness of chips! But when you get a craving, it’s important to understand WHY you’re having it, so your body can get what it really needs.
Possible Reasons Why You’re Craving Chips
There are tons of reasons why you might be craving chips. I mean, they do taste good after all. But some cravings are your body’s way of communicating with you, so it’s important to think about that before moving straight to chip land.
Here are some possible reasons why you might be cravings chips or other salty snacks:
1. You’re thirsty! Do I not always tell you to drink more water????
Did you know more than half of your body is water? If you don’t have enough you can run into serious trouble. To avoid evaporating into thin air, you’ll need to hydrate with some good old fashioned H2O.
Most of your liquid intake should be water. So if you drink soda, switch to La Croix or another sparkling water brand instead. Speaking of La Croix, did you know they have a Key Lime flavor now?? It’s hard to call anything key lime flavored a sacrifice. If you don’t need the bubbles but are bored to tears with flat water, try adding mint, basil, cucumber or other herbs or fruits to enhance its flavor. And although green juice holds a special place in my heart, you should keep it to one glass a day, as juice has naturally occurring sugars you’ll want to limit in order to feel your best.
To learn more about combating dehydration by following your body’s cues, read this.
2. You’re running low on electrolytes.
We’ve all heard how important electrolytes are… but what are they anyway? Surprisingly, electrolytes are salts! No wonder you’re craving a salty snack. If you’re feeling your inner scientist self, you can learn more about them by watching this video. Otherwise, go straight to refueling with Propel Sports Drinking Water, FATwater, or any other electrolyte-infused drink that focuses on natural ingredients and has low to no added sugar. You can also try your hand at making your own electrolyte drink. If you decide to go homemade, just be sure to use maple syrup instead of honey.
If you’re just not into the electrolyte bandwagon, there’s still a way to curb your salt cravings and give your body the nutrients it needs: take a multivitamin! Of course, you can always take a vitamin AND drink an electrolyte drink, since it never hurts to increase your mineral intake.
3. Your stress is running on high. This why I am in Mexico! Ha kidding....but actually.
It happens to the best of us. One of the worst offenders for increasing stress is feeling like you don’t have control over your thoughts or situations. When this happens, try incorporating mindfulness into your daily routine. While I’ll admit mindfulness is no chip, it’s really amazing because it allows us to bring awareness to our experiences, state of mind and emotions. This stress management technique reduces anxiety and leaves you in charge of your life. It also gives you the chance to identify your stress triggers so you can resolve them or learn to cope better.
Another great approach for reducing anxiety is to make a stress journal. Whenever you feel stressed, write it down. Eventually you’ll start to notice patterns that you can work to fix. Alternatively you can go for a run, meditate, call a friend, or take a shower. Find what relaxes you, whether it’s diffusing some lavender essential oils, using a Lush massage bar, or going on a scenic bike ride or hike.
4. There might be something more going on.
Don’t jump on the Web MD train just yet!! But if you’re craving salt on a regular basis, there are some medical issues that could be the cause. Try tackling the first three reasons before starting down the road of “Am I pregnant, PMSing, or something else?” If you’re still craving salt, feeling sluggish, or having other symptoms, consider making an appointment with your doctor or checking out our Nautropath services in which we can do hormonal testing and full blood labs.
Ok, so now you understand why you’re craving chips…. But…. you’re still craving chips. Ok, ok, I hear you.
Healthy Alternatives To Chips
While there are commercial baked potato chips on pretty much every chip aisle these days, there are several healthier chip alternatives you can grab when the craving hits. I’ve created a list below that you can turn to whenever your salt tooth strikes.
1. Kale or brussel sprout chips
These are pretty easy to make, delicious, and totally vegan friendly. Check out the Minimalist Baker’s recipe for kale chips or Jeanette’s Healthy Living’s post on how to roast brussel sprout chips.
2. Roasted chickpeas
While not a chip at all really, you might want to try your hand at roasting chickpeas if you’re into popcorn or happiness. Take Steamy Kitchen’s warning seriously though… these are addictive!
3. Apples / carrots / celery / radish / snap peas
Any crunchy produce will do. You can check the LA Times’ seasonal produce guide to figure out what’s freshest in California in any given month. Don’t forget that just like chips are more fun with dip (aren’t chips really just a way to shovel guac into your mouth as quickly as possible?!? Haha!!), veggies are too. So give yourself permission to pull out your favorite nut butter or vegan dip, and happy dipping!
4. Dehydrated vegetables
Broccoli, beets, cabbage, mushroom, mixed peppers… Really, any vegetable will do! Dried veggies are super useful because when you’re not snacking on them, you can still use them by throwing them in your salads, soups and more.
I’d recommend a veg option over dried fruits since they naturally contain less sugar. I’d especially recommend veg over fruits in this case because you’re craving something salty, ha. But feel free to go for some dried fruits from time to time too.
If you’re in a DIY mood, it’s pretty easy to dehydrate produce yourself.
5. Rice cakes
Rice cakes are an old stand by for toddlers and adults alike. They’re gluten-free, have a snappy crunch, are easy to take on the go, and last forever (or at least for several months when stored properly).
6. Kelp and seaweed (nori, wakame, iwanori, and kombu)
I have to confess that these are not some of my all-time favorite healthy alternatives to chips only cause I am allergic to them but they are good...so I hear. They’re green, light and delicious. They also taste great broken up and mixed into stir fries, soups and other dishes.
7. Bean and Rice chips
One more confession…. Well two.
One: Recently Beanfields Snacks approached me to ask if I could write about their bean-based chips. I’d never tried them before, so they gave several bags to sample. Their support is so appreciated, but I want to let you know that what I say below is totally my own (not sponsored) thoughts.
Two: Sometimes I really truly at the end of the day want a chip. Now that Beanfield has entered our happy home, when the craving hits, I turn to Beanfields chips. I like them because they’re loaded with protein, pack a fiber punch, are vegan (which is a requirement, of course), gluten-free, non-GMO, and taste amazing. My boyfriend absolutely loves them (I know this because he left me ONE CHIP before I had to go out and buy more hahaha), and I do too. I also love that they’re not fried in oil.
So far I’ve tried the nacho and sea salt flavors. The nacho one was great and reminded me of a Dorito (minus the guilt). But my favorite was the salt. The flavor is simple and pairs perfectly with my favorite snack buddy: guacamole. It also has the most perfectly satisfying crunch, and I get to skip the powder that comes on some of their more inventive flavors (like nacho, barbeque or pico de gallo). Although I will say that with their natural approach to chips, you don’t need to worry about their powders like you would with a more commercialized chip.
Now if you happen to have a bunch of these bad boys and want to get creative with them, I’d recommend using them to make vegan nachos, chilaquiles or chip crusted tofu tacos. How suitable for where I am at right now!
So friends, tell me! What are your favorite healthy alternatives to chips?
Vegan Vacationing is Easier than you Think
Winter’s finally over!! REJOICE. Now that we’ve kissed it goodbye, it’s the perfect time to travel. Well… any time is the best time for travel, but you get what I’m saying.
Since a lot of my favorite people are on the road, I wanted to share some tips on living your best life while enjoying every minute of your trip.
Lets Face it.
There are so many articles floating around about how hard vegan travel is. It’s easy to read them and get discouraged. And we’ve all heard of switching to vegetarian, pescetarian or meat inclusive diets during travel just to avoid the hassle.
But here’s the thing. We live in the age of the internet! Information is on our side. And of course, adventures are best when we feel our best. So here are some ways to power your trip of a lifetime, stress-free, every time.
Finding plant-based restaurants.
There’s a pretty huge group of vegans that love travel, just like you. And vegans usually love helping each other out, so it’s easy to find reviews of cool vegan friendly restaurants, cafes, bakeries, you name it.
Here are my most reliable resources when I’m on the go:
1. Happy Cow is where it’s at for vegan restaurant reviews.
This site is designed specifically for you, so go ahead and breathe a sigh of relief.
Enter in an address and choose your filters: restaurant type (vegan, vegetarian, veg-options), stores and more (think bakeries, farmers markets, etc.), and cuisine type. Remember to sort the results by “open now” so your heart doesn’t get set on something that doesn’t open for hours.
Veg-options will give you the most results, since the restaurants that appear won’t be exclusively plant-based but will be vegan friendly. Happy Cow has a presence in more than 100 countries and an app that’s well worth the $3.99 to download.
2. Yelp is your friend.
Yelp is a heavy hitter in the restaurant world and it’s hip to lifestyle diets. It has a presence in more than 30 countries, so is another great website and app to keep in your back pocket.
To find a place that hits the spot, type in the kind of restaurant you’re craving and select the filters you need. You can filter for vegan, gluten free, and more. If you don’t know what you’re in the mood for, type in “restaurants,” filter for vegan, open now, and the walking distance you prefer, and then hit enter so you can get the food you want on your plate fast.
3. Vanilla Bean knows where the veggies are hiding.
Another great app to add to your arsenal. Like Happy Cow, Vanilla Bean focuses on vegan dining. Restaurant can be narrowed down to vegan, vegetarian or restaurants also serving fish and meat. You can filter for gluten-free dishes, organic ingredients, local ingredients, fair trade, and even raw.
4. Instagram and Pinterest work too.
Dale Davies has some excellent tips on vegan travel, including using social media to your advantage.
Once you’re logged into IG, type vegan related hashtags into the search bar to find some great dining options near you. Popular hashtags include “#vegantravel” and vegan and the city you’re in (“#vegandenver” or “#veganchicago,” for example).
For Pinterest, type in “vegan, restaurant, [and the city you’re in]” (e.g. - vegan, restaurant, Miami) to find tons of great guides in the area.
5. Meetup can help you find hidden gems.
If you’re ready to make new friends that share your interests and have the inside scoop on the best local vegan fare, Meetup is a great way to connect.
While I truly believe that *most* of the time you’ll be able to find something satisfying and vegan in any situation, some world foods are just more vegan friendly than others. If a vegan or vegetarian restaurant isn’t an option, you’ll have the easiest time dining at one of these types of restaurants:
Deconstructing Menus to be more plant-Based
You’ve probably heard that calling restaurants ahead of time will make your visit a lot easier. You can ask all the questions you want in the privacy of your own home (or Airbnb, hotel, hostel, etc.) without feeling annoying or slowing down service for other tables. Most of the time the person answering the phone really does want to help, so don’t be shy.
But let’s say you’re with friends or family who aren’t the restaurant review reading type. Or the planning type. Maybe you were walking around, got hungry, and they smelled something good and just went in. Don’t worry - you can do this.
1) First thing’s first. Read the menu. All of it.
Whether the menu has a vegetarian section or not, there’s usually at least one or two accidental vegan offerings that work great.
Salads are an obvious choice. Appetizers and soups can work really well too. So get creative and order as many as you need to.
Speaking of vegan creativity, read the meat entrees.
Don’t eat the meat! Ha.
But it helps to read those entree descriptions because the meats come with sides, a lot of which end up being vegan. If you add a few of those together, you end up with a delicious, thoughtfully prepared meal that most restaurants are more than happy to offer.
2. Now that you’ve decided what you want, look for the fine (or missing) print.
Just because the ingredients listed are all vegan doesn’t mean something non-vegan hasn’t snuck into your dish.
While mentioning that you’re vegan works in some restaurants, in others it won’t have you totally covered. To be safe, get familiar with non-vegan ingredients found in different types of cuisine. Chicken broth and eggs are used in all kinds of food (remember pasta can be made from eggs too).
If you’re eating Chinese, Japanese, or other Asian foods, ask if your food has been prepared with fish sauce, oyster sauce, bonito flakes. If you’re having French or Italian, ask about dairy. And for more ideas, visit The Vegan Word.
3. If you’re really worried about being able to find something filling (or at all), it’s ok to eat a light meal beforehand.
There’s no shame in going to a restaurant prepared. You do you!
PS - If you’re traveling abroad, check out the Vegan Passport. Offered in 79 languages, its vegan words and phrases will give you the power to handle any situation clearly, sensitively and worry-free. And if there’s still a language barrier, it has pictures you can point to that get the message across.
Get Creative in the grocery stores
Packing snacks is not just for the moms in your life. It can make the difference between a successful vegan vacation or having to “compromise” when hanger strikes.
Here are some easy to find ingredients I buy for my own travels:
1. Green juice
I love starting my day with a veggie focused smoothie, but I’m not always within walking distance of a smoothie bar. Green juice is a close second that leaves me energized for the day ahead.
2. Fresh Fruit
My mornings are a love affair with fruit. You really can fill up on them if you eat enough. As with anything, seasonal is best. You can find the freshest, best options based on your vacation location here.
3. Alternative milk or yogurt and granola
Can you tell breakfast is heavy on my mind? It’s because most vegan restaurants open later in the day. Make yourself at home with a cozy bowl of cereal.
4. Peanut, almond or cashew butter
It’s the little things in life. Nut butters satisfy my inner child. I stay full and happy and I think you will too.
5. Nuts, Seeds and Dried Fruits
Making your own trail mix is super easy! And you don’t have to pick anything out since it’s designed just for you.
6. Granola bars
This is the easiest to pack snack ever! It will stay good the entirety of your trip, fit in your purse or pocket, and be the security blanket you need for your trip.
Whole Foods, Trader Joes, Aldi and most other grocery stores are pretty vegan friendly these days. So make sure to stop in and have a look
If you’re into cooking (even really basic stuff), booking a place to stay that includes kitchen access is always a great idea. It gives you a healthy option for when vegan restaurants are closed, far away, or you’re trying to stick to a budget.
In addition to hostels, you can look for places to stay through Airbnb, Vegvisits, or Couchsurfing. Vegvisits is specifically designed for vegans. Airbnb and Couchsurfing have plenty of vegan friendly offerings too (like vegan cooking classes from Airbnb hosts or vegan groups on Couchsurfing). Feel free to send your host questions about amenities, restaurants, events, or anything else related to your stay.
You can do this!
If you’re in the US, there are tons of vegans living in the city you’re visiting. And wherever you might be, other vegans who have been there too. Which is why you can find amazing city guides by Googling the city’s name and “vegan restaurant guide.”
Occasionally your dinner might end up being a granola bar, but with a good attitude, a little preparation and some creativity, you’re almost sure find an amazing vegan foodie scene wherever you are. And at the end of the day, there’s at least going to be some good wine and coffee waiting to be discovered :-)
Why Raw Food?
Purify your Body
Raw food helps purify and detoxify our body. There are endless amounts of vegetables and fruits on our planet that contain high levels of antioxidants, anti-inflammatories, and other nutrients in which will help shock our bodies system when we switch to a vegan diet. With the correct intake of fruits and vegetables (>10 servings per day), low to no intake of grasses (oats and grains), and at least 3/4 oz.of water per pound of body-weight we get the MINIMAL amount of micronutrients. Most diseases (cancer, cardiovascular, diabetes, etc.) are preventable at this minimal intake. By the way, I do not subscribe to the food pyramid or the RDA (recommended daily allowance) that is prescribed to prevent most diseases. Yes, Beri Beri (vitamin C-deficiency), scurvy (vitamin B deficiency) and rickets (vitamin D deficiency) may be rare since the 1600’s, but there are many diseases that westernized countries face now that are very devastating. Cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, degenerative brain diseases, and muscle & joint diseases can essentially be eliminated through the aforementioned recommendations. However, the average intake of fruits and vegetables is about 3 servings or less per day, and a much higher intake of grasses and dairy. There is a whole next level of nutrition and quality of life assuming we’re hitting our minimums of fruits, vegetables and water.
PRACTICAL APPROACH TO BEING PLANT-BASED
A plant-based diet can be one of the healthiest ways to live. Plant-based diets should contain plenty of fresh fruits and vegetable. Because vegan diets often rely heavily on these staples, they tend to be higher in vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals, and fiber.
When transitioning to a more vegetarian or plant-based diet start with making your veggies / salad a main versus a side. Slowly transition your meat dishes to be looked at as a side versus centering the rest of your vegetables around it.

Zucchini / Carrots / Beets / Sweet Potatoes / Butternut Squash Noodles
All you need is a spiralizer and will expand your raw food world. Optionally you can peel the vegetable and the spiralizer will turn then into noodles. Or you can use a mandoline slicer to make lasagna noodles.
Sweet Sundays with Abrah and some tessa
Vegan Raspberry Bars & Raspberry Shoes
Abrah and I both share a love for raspberries - they are not only her favorite fruit but I honestly eat a pack of raspberries everyday....so does Matt! Also don't think for a minute that all my posts are dreamy vegan treats - I had some fitness, travel and knowledge to these posts too.
Sweet Sundays with Abrah
Another easy, simple and of course delicious no bake recipe for this week! One thing that makes me appreciate no bake recipes is you can almost eat it right away, because who wants to wait ?!
These bars hold form really well, so they are easy to take on the go too!
Just another girl who is trying to inspire others. Passionate about health and fitness. And a love of coffee and peanut butter.
