Yay to Grocery Shopping!

Most of the times it makes me really happy to go grocery shopping. Especially when I plan on going to Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods like today :)

I made a list of the meals I’ll be cooking over the next week or so, and created my grocery list. And hey, it’s all vegan and includes baking some cookies <3

Here’s my Menu in no particular order ;)

  • Zucchini Black Bean Fritters
  • Latkes
  • Burritos
  • Hearty Pinto Bean Stew
  • Red Lentil Coconut Soup
  • Homemade Veggie Burgers involving Tofu, Beans, Oats, and Veggies
  • Banana, Oatmeal & Chocolate Chip Cookies

yum yum yum!


oh hey, it’s Friday!

Eating Healthy or Pizza?


Who says you can’t have Pizza and live healthy at the same time? Exactly, no one.

The hubs and I have been making our Pizza by ourselves at home for a while now. The first few times we used canned pizza dough, canned pizza sauce, and meat. Not really that much better than the frozen or ordered kind, I know.

Well, we’ve learned. Here is what we do now:

  • Get fresh whole wheat dough at Trader Joe’s or Whole Foods
  • Make our own Pizza Sauce
  • Top it with plenty of veggies
  • Add some cheese
  • Bake and indulge!


Yum Yum Yum! And not a second of feeling bad or guilty or anything negative for that matter.

Now add a movie, hot tea, and a blanket on the couch and this is our happy, comfy friday night in :)

I want to start using vegan cheese, but never really had it. So I have no clue what to try.

Does anyone of you have tips or recommendations regarding vegan cheese substitutes? Please let me know in the comments, thank you :)
