P1030409

Nothing feels as good as laying on the couch to watch a clever documentary…..or hours of housewives. Which ever you choose, can’t have a night on the couch without snacks!

Roasted chickpeas are a great alternative to classic savoury snacks, such as chips or popcorn. These tiny little beans, packed with fibre are delicious and satisfying when roasted and seasoned.

With the noticeable change in temperature over the last weeks, cozy times are defiantly on their way. Time to get the snacks ready!

Vegan power potato salad

Happy Friday Friends,

In the spirit of summer I threw together a quick vegan potato salad last night. It was hit for David and I! The kids weren’t as enthusiastic because of all of the mystery greens, toddlers can be such food snobs 😉 Anyway this salad was very fast to make and I added a few extras to pump it up.

Raw Food Update: Dairy, Digestion and Facebook.

Hi Everyone,

I just finished the raw food challenge and it went pretty smooth. I have been doing one cooked vegan meal at night (rice or quinoa usually), this was my intention when I started the challenge anyway, I like like the texture of cooked food once a day. It hasn’t been too challenging because I eat like this 75% of the time anyway. But I do thrive off the structure and motivation of a group challenge, plus Continue reading “Raw Food Update: Dairy, Digestion and Facebook.”

I am back to reality! New June Goals!

Hi Friends,

I have been a lazy blogger lately. But the good thing is although I have not been writing a lot, I have been doing a few cool things that have inspired me to set some new goals and reestablish some old commitments. I am excited I will have new things to share and write about. The winter was very long and traitorous this year and there are only so many indoor activities that my 2 toddlers and I could do. I feel like we bonded physically (lots of cuddles), but the long days inside definitely  challenged my mental state and patience (I pray for patience, above all). Now that the leaves are back on the trees and a can smell the ocean air, I am focusing on abundance. Abundance of: love, plant foods, prayer, meditation, energy, physical activity, sunshine, breathing, learning, sharing and gratitude. I have listed a couple goals and a few updates below. Have a happy, healthy day xoxo Anna.

Goal: I am going Fully Raw Vegan for 14 days:

My Plant Based lifestyle has been a little rocky lately. I am not ashamed to admit slip ups, because I believe it is a process and I know I will eventually reach my destination. I have been shifting between vegetarian, vegan, pescatarian back to vegan for 10 years (nothing is ever simple with me, obviously). One thing I do know is Continue reading “I am back to reality!
