It’s finally here!! I can’t remember if I’ve been sneaky or not about this ebook (which is possibly another layer of ninja if I can hide even that from myself) but I’ve finished and it’s all yours for free and it’s 100% dedicated to my food mistress: chocolate. No matter how busy I get or how lazy, there’s always time in the day for a nibble on something chocolate-y. I may have something of an addiction, but I’ve decided to make a total chocolate cleanse for myself….with chocolate. And since it’s free, you can “cleanse” with me! 😀 Continue reading
Today’s vegan Mofo theme is a bit strange to me because I’m a homebody who fiercely protects her personal space and alone time (Man-thing and cats don’t count as “other people” and therefore don’t bother me). We do take an annual holiday admittedly but then the answer to the question of what we would bring on a vegan road trip is “everything”. Since I’m not going to unpack my whole kitchen for this post I decided to make some easy protein crunch bars, since that’s always the one thing that’s guaranteed to fuel the long hours on the road.
As many of you may know, I like to keep some freezer treats on hand in case of desperate munchies when fruit, carrot sticks or cucumbers just won’t cut it. These beauties have texture, spice, and fruity crunch with the cranberries, slathered in a mocha chocolate nut butter drizzle for the ultimate in healthy indulgence.
V-day isn’t just about being in romantic relationships, thankfully. There is so much reason to love in the world every single day, but since humans love their holidays and themes, I may as well share some treats that can be whipped up to spoil friends (for a palentines day), family, or even just yourself (most legit of all).
I admit it, I’m pretty exhausted. I’ve been napping of late (which I never do) and schloffing my feet around because we’re nearing that time of year where everyone pretends to “relax” and be “on holiday” and then create circumstances that demand action and activity. I admit we do a lot of that ourselves by being hyper-conscious of social obligations, but it’s sometimes easier to completely cancel out interaction with humanity than to try and “balance” everything.
The end of the year is as far off from balance as one can get, at least in our household, which is why I’ve quickly drummed up some life-saving snack bites to tide us over when we need a little boost.
Today is an awesome day! We got five foster kittens yesterday to break in the new kitty section of the house (plans to rent out the rooms are now on furry ice). We then got four more today, so we want to take these healthy, home-to-home kitties and give them a safe and happy place to enjoy life before going to their forever homes and families. ❤To celebrate I made a small but gleeful raw cookie dough layer cake – not sure if that’s at all what it is, but that’s too bad, nay? Words are one thing, but pictures really tell the story. Ergo, Yum: A Suitable Sweet Snack.
I am SO excited about today’s post! I was working a full day on Wednesday, and ended up daydreaming about food (as is usually the case) when this just blitzed into my brain. Chocolate? Naturally! Buckwheat? But of course! SO EXCITED!
