Vegan in Maui, HI

Significant change is always followed by renewal and growth. If you’ve been following along you know that my life took a major turn this year. While it was emotionally trying, just like a Phoenix that rises from the ash, I have emerged stronger and with a clarity I didn’t have before. Many good things have come from this upheaval – one of which is a new dude (not ready to go into details on that quite yet though). But, this new dude invited me to Maui recently and I obviously couldn’t say no to that!

VEEV Crazy4CoconutColada Instagram Contest!

Happy June y’all! The weather is hot hot hot and I’ve been spending a lot of time by the pool (slathered in sunscreen of course) daydreaming of my upcoming vacation (more on that later!). I’m sneaking away to a tropical island and nothing gets me in the mood better than an icy cold adult beverage. My beloved VEEV has just released their VitaFruit Coconut Colada flavor which is the PERFECT libation to conjure up visions of white sand beaches and crystal blue waters.

Vegan Cuts Subscription Box Unboxing

My favorite time of month is when I get my Vegan Cuts Beauty & Snack Boxes in the mail.

Each month you’ll discover new brands that you’ll fall in love with and you’ll be armed with an arsenal of companies that are safe to purchase from in the future.

Cookbook Corner: Viva Vegan

Some of my all time favorite foods come from the Mexican/Latin variety. I love the flavor combinations used in Latin cooking and I’m always down for spicy food, so it’s no wonder one of the very first vegan cookbooks I purchased was Viva Vegan! by Terry Hope Romero. In this week’s Cookbook Corner I am featuring her Potato Chickpea Enchiladas with homemade Pine Nut Crema from Viva Vegan.

Vegan in the East Bay

Last month I spent a week with my very best friend, her husband and their 3 month old son (who I am madly in love with) in Pleasant Hill, CA. As you may recall, she and I came up with this refreshing adult beverage while I was up there, but I wanted to share some of the other great food experiences I had while there.

Cookbook Corner: The Vegan Zombie: Cook & Survive

Over the past few years I have collected quite a bit of vegan cookbooks. I love getting a new cookbook and spending a couple hours going through them, looking at the pictures, reading the recipes and marking the ones I really want to make. After that process they usually go on the shelf and sit there untouched. It’s a horrible habit I have and I am determined to break it with this new series I’m calling Cookbook Corner. Each week I will make a recipe from one of the cookbooks I own and share it with you here!
