Follow Your Heart VeganEgg Review

Thanksgiving is in just a few days, y'all. Can you believe it? This month has gone by so fast. I've spent it cooking a ton, and cleaning a bunch in anticipation of Thanksgiving and the following Christmas season. Though in all honesty the "Christmas season" started like the second week of November in our home. We're those people!

It certainly felt like Christmas came early when I got a call from my local vegan grocer (Rabbit Food Grocery) letting me know that their first shipment of the Follow Your Heart VeganEgg had arrived.

Pot Roasted Tempeh

Y'all, I threw out my back! Can you believe it? I've never had back pain in my life, but last weekend I started feeling really limited in what I could do without hurting myself. Chores went undone, meals were barely cooked, and writing most certainly didn't happen. Thank God my husband is so caring and supportive. He bought me lots of heat packs, did what chores he had time to do, and brought me countless glasses of water.

My back isn't 100% ok, but it definitely feels much better than it did just a couple of days ago. I was able to do stuff around the house today, and working on my computer is no longer painful. Good thing because I've been waiting to share this recipe for Pot Roasted Tempeh for too long!

Pumpkin Coffee Sugar Scrub

Happy November and happy National Pumpkin Scrub day! Just kidding, it's not National Pumpkin Scrub day. I don't think. There's a day for everything now so I wouldn't be surprised. This scrub is fantastic, but not so fantastic that it needs its own day. However, it is much better than the item whose day it actually is today, deviled eggs. If November 2nd has to be a national day of something ridiculous then I vote for this body scrub over eggs. It's exfoliating, it's moisturizing, it's seasonally appropriate, and it's a delightful addition to your morning shower. It's also fat free and cholesterol free as long as you don't eat it. 

Please don't eat it.

A Scary Good Stovetop Mac & Cheese Giveaway (Vegan and Gluten Free!) and Staying Motivated to Create During the Holidays

It's crazy how fast this fall is going. This last week we've been busy watching Halloween movies, eating Halloween foods, planning our costumes, carving pumpkins, and getting ready for our friend's yearly Halloween party. My husband and I have this compulsion where we can't go to parties and not bring too many snacks to share, so this year my friend was like "We would love it if you could bring some snacks!". AKA "We all know that you're going to so let's make it official." She gets me, y'all. I'm making Muddy Buddies, Creamy Cashew Onion Dip (from House Vegan: Fall FoMo No More) and vegan versions of these Pumpkin Rice Krispie Treats using pumpkin flavored Dandies and TruJoy Choco Chews. That's pretty good, right? Not too excessive?
