Hello and happy Sunday! It’s been a busy weekend already, I went to and volunteered at SacTown VegFest for a few hours yesterday and will be posting a lot more on that when I finish going through all the pictures! I also have another vegan social meetup today that I’m looking forward to! It has not been a good weekend for poor Leela, she spent all day at the vet Friday getting her teeth cleaned and I just hate putting her through that. Poor girl was still very dopey Friday evening trying to sit at the dinner table with us,
I had to carefully make sure she didn’t fall off the chair.
Her teeth look a lot better and it’s important since she’s prone to dental problems and infections which can lead to cancer and other health problems if they go untreated. She has to have her teeth cleaned about every year.
Miko and Smokey tried to peacefully share the couch blanket, but I don’t think Smokey was too pleased.
I tried a new tea from a friend at work, Yogi Cranberry Spice Probiotic Balance.
And liked it! If has a nice cranberry spice flavor with nothing off in the flavor or texture area from the probiotics, so good way to add probiotics to your diet.
I also finally got through all the tangerines on our tree snacking on them at work, peeling and freezing bags of them for smoothies, and giving them away to family and co-workers – whew!
When the tree is in full fruit bloom, I swear it has more tangerines on it than leaves and the poor branches are weighed down to the ground! It’s a blessing, but work to harvest them all!
Also still going through the bag of Santa Cruz Organics Peanut Powder for chocolate peanut smoothies, yum!
I used Follow Your Heart’s VeganEgg to make coconut curry fried rice.
And the texture seemed a lot like traditional fried rice, kind of fun the way it clumped together and the VeganEgg product picked up the curry flavors. I need to try it in vegan french toast next.
Simple eats included this potato tempeh oil free stir fry.
Salad with hummus dressing.
Oil free tamari tempeh stir fry with rainbow carrots and cauliflower.
Spicy coconut curry tofu Thai takeout.
Hubby made this delicious West African Peanut Soup recipe.
And veggie loaded vegan tacos using LightLife’s Smart Grounds.
So sexy that he’s getting creative in the kitchen with vegan foods!
Okay, to the list!
Animal Place has started a new campaign called Food for Thought to help organizations serve more animal friendly foods.
We have another new vegan cheese producer that I can’t wait to try!
This happy health story proves you’re never too old to make a positive change.
And wow on Vegan Ultra Runner Fiona Oakes! And she got into running after knee surgeries!
This quick interview with Russell Simmons will arm your vegan defense.
And yikes, time for my long training run! Hope everyone is having a great day!
