VEGGIE SUMMER ROLLS with CHIPOTLE PEANUT SAUCE


What is there to say about summer rolls that hasn't already been said? I don't think I can effectively add anything to the conversation about them so I won't. What I will say is: this is simply another delicious, easy, and quick vegan recipe for summer rolls. I know this recipe is not traditional, but it's gorgeous to look at and tastes great. It's a crowd pleaser for when you want to show friends (or others...) that eating vegan doesn't have to be weird and sad like so many folks think it does. 

We just are throwing together some fresh, vibrant veggies in rice paper wraps and pairing them with a spicy, creamy peanut sauce. What's not to love? Dig in.

COCO VANILLA SHAKE with CHOCOLATE SAUCE


There are not actually words in the english dictionary that I know of to accurately describe how delicious this shake is. And I only speak english so I can't look to other languages here. Basically: you need it in your life immediately. Whether you're vegan or not, it's gonna blow your mind and take your taste buds to new heights. Please make it ASAP. If ya want more recipes like this one, I'd suggest checking out N'ice Cream, a beautiful vegan ice cream cookbook full of pretty pictures and inspiring ideas. It got me hooked on using full fat coconut milk (the stuff in the can) in my shakes and nice cream and I will never go back.

Oh wait I wanna add: I am a finalist and nominated for "Best in Health & Fitness" for BC Living's The Social List 2016! Plz vote for me if you want to. :) You can vote here.

CRANBERRY CRÈME TARTS


This recipe was a hit! I shared it with several people, including a friend for her birthday. It's sweet, fresh, fun and cute to boot. These tarts pack a secret nutritional punch thanks to Pranin Organic's PureFood Iron, which I included in the chocolate crust. Keep your eyes peeled (that saying always makes me feel kind of uncomfortable...) for a guest blog post from me on Pranin Organic's website. I will be talking about the importance of getting enough iron and nutritionally-dense foods in your diet in order to maintain a happy and healthy existence on this bizarre and wonderful planet.

BLISS BALLS! (EQUIPMENT-FREE, RAW, VEGAN)


Eyyyy so I KNOW I haven't posted a recipe in almost a week and I just gotta say: oops. First the election on Tuesday hit me like a terrible bag of bigoted bricks so I hid in bed crying for 24 hours, trying to convince myself it was a bad dream. ("WRONG!")
