Life Update + Everything Trail Mix Cookies (Vegan)

I hope that everyone had a wonderful weekend, I know I did! My dad and stepmom arrived yesterday to visit us for the first time here in Columbus and we have been having a blast showing them around the city and going out to eat. Ironically enough, our big life news today is that we will be moving to Austin Texas at the end of August! This is such an exciting time for us and we cannot wait to start a new little life somewhere with no snow, more music and a bigger backyard.   Anyways, the reason that I…

My Daily Green Juice

In a lot of ways, I am a total creature of habit. I weirdly love reading about other people’s morning routines and finding little things that I can implement into my daily routines with ease – I do yoga every morning because Cara Delevingne told me to. One of the main things that I have always heard mentioned by successful women is drinking green juice. When I first heard the concept, I was skeptical to say the least…drinking kale in the morning? That sounds….delicious. NOT (sorry…Borat moment there). Anyways, one of my new year’s resolutions was to juice more so I decided…

The Classic Margarita

Point is that summer is in full swing now so you know what…

Fourth of July Fruit Pizza (Vegan)

As I stated on Monday, I am eagerly awaiting the Fourth of July. Why? Because I am a patriot dammit….oh and also because FOOD. I love barbeques, which is probably a weird thing for a vegan to say, but it is just so much fun to spend time outside with friends, drinking beer and raising hell, so throwing in an open flame with food on it just seems natural. This year since we are actually in the country (unlike last year) I wanted to make something new and particularly special. In the past I have loved baking a vanilla sheet…

Koreatown + Lazy Man’s Bibimbap (Vegan)

I am not sure what it is about going vegan, but somehow as soon as you start not only do people seem to suddenly to think that what you ingest is any of their business, they also appear to be under the impression that all foods aside from meat and dairy are devoid of protein and iron and you are going to become anemic and die. I hate to break it to everyone, but there are tons of plant based protein sources that are actually higher in proteins and healthy fats than meat. Tofu has plenty of protein and has become…
