MY FAVE VEGAN SUPPLEMENTS


Today I am giving my own personal response to the age-old vegan question, "Should we take supplements, or nah?" In short, my answer is: it depends, but probably. Read on for the longer version.

PERFECT BREAKFAST BAGELS with TOMATOES & BASIL


Hello, friends. Busy as I am with school, meditation practice, endless to-dos, trips, errands, and life, I am TRYING to post more regularly. It's not really happening. I remember when I used to publish recipes every week... Oooh, those were the days: back when I was a teenager, with about 200% less worries. ANYHOO. Today is THIS day, and here I am. I want to share with you my current fave breakfast. It's a bagel. But not just ANY bagel. This recipe includes garden-fresh ingredients to give you nourishing vibrancy all morning.

DIY MEDITATION CUSHION (QUICK & CHEAP!)


Hello, sweet readers! Today I bring you some a little different from my regular recipe posts. I want to share a super easy tutorial for a DIY meditation cushion/pillow. I improvised this last week and it came together perfectly. For me, an important piece of why I meditate in the first place is to be content with the simple gifts in life, and to not desire more than I need. So, there is no need for me to buy a fancy meditation pillow made with new materials, when I can craft one easily and affordably in my own home, with my own hands. I enjoy being part of the process, too.

GET OUT THE BUNS (FOR VEGAN BURGERS)


Babes! Summer is upon us! That means vegan burger time! And apparently lots of exclamation marks! 

I have to admit that summer is not my season of choice. I am one of those people who prefers the gloom of fall and winter. HOWEVER, for a short period of time, I do appreciate the warmth of the sun on my skin, and the smells of barbecues getting heated up to grill veggies and veggie burgers. My family loves to do BBQ dinners in our backyard, and this year we started things off right with Beyond Meat burgers, veggie burgers from Costco (surprisingly delicious), and sprouted burger buns!

BERRY TARTS with HAZELNUT BANANA FILLING


Hello, my darlings. How have you been? I am back with another recipe. This time, we're making RAW, VEGAN fruit tarts with a delicious hazelnutty banana creme filling. This recipe is inspired and adapted from one I shared many years ago: Just The Bare Fruit Tarts. (I was really into GIFs then, apparently.) IMPACT Magazine will be sharing today's recipe in their upcoming issue, so stay tuned for that and buy a copy if you want!
