Happy Birthday to my Brother in Law, Steve! Steve just so happens to be smitten with my baked goods, so every birthday I spoil him with a new vegan treat to enjoy. I’ve been meaning to make these Peanut Butter Chocolate Pillows by Isa & Terry for a very long time now! I think I […]

Plate To Pixel

As a child, I was an avid fiction reader. I loved anything from Chronicles of Narnia to The Babysitters Club to Anne of Green Gables to Amelia Bedelia. …and…wait for it…Choose your own adventure!!! I think I actually believed they were non-fiction though! Wrapped in a blanket hiding away in one of my homemade forts, […]

How to Reframe a Negative Thought with a Thought Record

neg-pos

Many of you have asked me if I could talk about things I have learned in therapy since I announced back in the summer that I was going back into therapy for my struggles with anxiety. Well, first off, I didn’t end up going right away. It took me about 1.5 months to find a […]

Imagine this scene: Last night, Eric and I got dressed up (me as the Queen of Hearts, him as the Scream character) and we stuffed 40 treat bags for the trick or treaters. They were bursting with candy and small toys like leap frogs and mini games. Last year we got around 20 kids, so […]

The Workout Log Challenge

[source] Brrrr…it’s cold out there today! This is the time of the year when I really start to notice the waning daylight hours and struggle with motivation when it comes to workouts. The early mornings are no longer bright and sunny, but dark, chilly, and uninviting. I’ve always preferred to workout in the morning, but […]

Every Halloween I have grand plans to make “scary” Halloween food. This year, I have my eye on: Brain cupcakes (so clever) Chocolate Witch Hats (not scary, but cool) Forked eyeballs (do this with cookie dough balls!) Tentacle Pot Pie (Monday’s dinner inspiration) Stuffed roaches (hahah) Apple Teeth (doesn’t get much easier than this)   […]

Protein Powder Reviews

IMG_3798

My Naturopath recently suggested that I increase my protein intake at breakfast after looking at my daily food log and finding that I was coming up short on occasion. Breakfast is usually my meal that’s lowest in protein (lunch and dinner are fine) and he thought that an increase in breakfast protein could help with […]

Black Bean and Butternut Squash Burritos

IMG_3732

Isn’t it cruel that I’m dangling these burrito pictures in front of you several hours before lunch on a Monday morning? If I was a better planner, I would have posted this recipe yesterday. Then you could have made these for dinner and had leftovers for lunch today. Oops? The truth is, I was just […]

The Happy Herbivore Cookbook & Giveaway!

IMG_3409

It’s Hockey Season and that means I’m feeding snacks to a bunch of hungry guys during our weekly game night. Impressing the male species with vegan food is one of the biggest challenges of all. It’s not so much the taste of the food that I’m worried about; it’s more the stereotype of what vegan […]
