Positive Body Image

Pin It!

But first, food. ‘Cause who wants to talk body-image on an empty stomach? Mâche with raspberries and walnuts, buttery veggie stir fry, and whole-wheat toast with soy-free Earth Balance. It was my first time trying the eb, and I wasn’t blown away. It just tasted like… nothing. As far as vegan butter substitutes go, Smart Balance […]

Spooky Vegan Carrot Cake

People were fighting over […]

Even if you are sick of candy, you might want to find room in your tummy to make the following coconut melties. I’m obsessed with […]

Blend Yer Oatmeal!

Happy Saturday morning! Blended Oatmeal Pudding I used the famous “Blended Oatmeal” Trick on the oatmeal. Then I added banana and a healthy dose of peanut butter. Perhaps it was the addition of the pb that helped me to not miss my chocolate. Or maybe it was the oatmeal, itself. After all, I love oatmeal […]
