There is literally SO much to this post that I’m going insane trying to remember everything I did, because there is seriously so much that went on last weekend! FRIDAY (MAKING SNICKERDOODLE SWEET POTATO KABOCHA PUDDING + NEW ARCTIC ZERO) I was very curious on the Friday morning I had off and decided hey, could I use … More New YouTube Video: Random Weekend Snippets: 2.12 – 2.15 (purple sweet potato pudding + vegan hot dogs)
This is a very special video because it is completely vegetarian! No meat, no seafood! If you’ve read a few of my posts, exclusively my Tuesday thoughts on vegetarianism post and Earthlings post, you will know that I’ve always wanted to try a plant-based diet but was a bit hesitant during that time because of a … More New YouTube Video: What I Ate Today – Vegetarian + Veggie Grill
THIS is the major volunteering opportunity for Thanksgiving that I wanted to talk about in my last Tuesday Thoughts post! I remember my last visit at Cafe Gratitude–it was gorgeous, memorable and sweet with a new hippie vibe I adored and food I devoured. I still dream about my banana bread and “I Am Terrific” … More Volunteering at Cafe Gratitude + Asian Thanksgiving?
Tastes just as yummy as it sounds… This recipe comes with an interesting story. My initial idea was to make a sweet potato matcha bowl, but I was just way too nervous about the combo. Sweet potato and matcha? Nobody does that. Besides, I wasn’t really craving matcha at the time. I was at a loss … More Cinnamon Raisin Sweet Potato Kabocha Pudding (vegan + gluten free)

To put it simply, eating clean is the way to go. But I feel as if even with healthy living, there are still rules that I think are … More Diet Rules I Break–And You Can Too!
Last year in my Whole Foods haul I bought a couple of purple potatoes and had to try them right away. I don’t know, there’s something about potatoes that I can’t get enough of. While I avoid french fries as best as I can the craving just kicks in. Besides, the purple babies were calling my name. … More Purple Potato Fries–Two Ways
Pop quiz: when do bananas taste the best? The answer is not yellow, brown and it’s definitely not green (eew). It’s black! All raw vegans emphasize to eat spotty, speckled bananas, and they’re right! Nutrients are at their pinnacles when bananas are overripe. Plus no one likes a flavorless naner. But what if you really need a ripe … More How to Ripen Bananas in 30 Minutes
Apples and sweet potatoes? Sounds kinda unlikely to me. Sweet potatoes are a great alternative to those on a grain-free or paleo but not necessarily low carb diet. Their dense amount of fiber and resistant starch (especially when cooled but tastes nasty) are just as good if not better than those of their grainy counterparts, not … More Apple Sweet Potato Mash
Fruits and vegetables are my kryptonite. Every day I can have a banana peanut butter smoothie, nana ice cream and end the day with a giant kale salad. I do have one complaint: raw is overrated. Okay, that’s a bit of a lie. But this season I crave warm, soft vegetables that are more digestible. … More Baked Veggie Crudite
Dreams really do come true. On my real birthday, last Monday respectively, I received a fifty-dollar Whole Foods gift card! ❤ For two years I’ve dreamed of shopping at Whole Foods for a day. Sad to say, I don’t live near one and this beautiful Disneyland is super expensive. Heck you could spend up to … More Whole Foods Trip + Grocery Haul
