Currently Digging // February Edition

Hello everyone! Today we are dipping back into our newest series “Currently Digging” after a brief hiatus. With so much going on these last few months, the only thing I have been “digging” is sleep when I get a chance to partake in it, and red wine. Now that we are really getting our routine back-in-order and getting our brains in the right place, I am excited to say that we are starting to explore new things again. It feels ah-mazing. We have been exploring new restaurants, TV shows, movies, books, all kinds of adventures to keep ourselves up to…

Healthy Black Bean Brownies (Vegan, Gluten Free)

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, I have been searching high and low for a “healthy” black bean brownie recipe. As I talked about in our monthly Currently Digging post, A and I just finished a cleanse and we are trying our best not to break the good habits we have created just because it is a holiday.

For these treats I used trusty old JJ’s Cocomels of course (honestly they didn’t…

Salted Cocomel Mashed Sweet Potatoes (Vegan)

Ahhh Thanksgiving. Is there another day that is as warm and family centric in the year? Every year my dad invites over our entire family for a huge Thanksgiving feast, we are talking 45 people dinners here, and every year it is even more fun than the last. There is family football, football on TV (go niners!), drinks, music and of course, tons of food. It is one of my favorite days of the year, but unfortunately (fortunately?) this year we just bought a house and we will be spending the holidays away from family here in Austin. There is…

“Don’t Agonize, Organize”

Image via Hello friends and welcome to the end of one of the darkest weeks in American history. I know I was not the only one who spent all of Tuesday night/Wednesday morning tossing and turning in gut-wrenching agony. I know I am not the only one who found our country’s decision to elect a xenophobic, islamophobic, misogynist, racist, sex offending demagogue into the most powerful position in the world to be both horrifying and shameful. I know I was not the only one who has been so nauseated that I literally puked out of fear for the safety of our islamic,…
