My new fixation: rolling. Begged my dad to buy me collard greens after watching @fresh.heather ‘s wrap tutorial, and he did! And the rest is history. Not really…I’m still improving, but I filled these with shredded red cabbage, zucchini, celery, carrots, scallions, and chickpea/chili/lime/cumin/paprika/Tabasco hummus, and they were reaaalllly pretty darn good.

I’ve never liked Jim Carrey’s style of acting so I’ve never really paid much attention to him, but holy hell he just blew me away. This is everything. 

What are some good vegan recipes?? For dinners and snacks, all I can find are cookie recipes and stuff that doesn't look very appealing!

All of these sites have very nutritious and fun dairy and meat-free dishes that I think you’ll enjoy! With vegan cooking, you really have to experiment a bit and find out what you like. If you enjoy raw veggies, experiment with crazy colorful salads and plant based dressings. If you prefer more cooked dishes, opt for soups and stews that utilize veggies, grains, and legumes. Some delicious options are in veggie ‘burgers’ but experiment with making them yourself! Beans, lentils, quinoa, and even root vegetables like yams and sweet potatoes lend themselves to this. You can never go wrong with a Mexican style dinner of beans, rice, greens, tomatoes, and avocado. Indian cuisine has many dishes you can make that are incredibly filling and flavorful- my personal favorite is Aloo Gobi (potato and cauliflower curry). Mediterranean cuisine could also be fun to work with- falafels, pita, hummus, tabbouleh, and freshly grilled veggies could comprise a delicious dinner. My favorite snacks include fresh veggies, fruits, smoothies, and nuts. Use the above sites to figure out what you like and what works for your body and your routine! 

This morning was bliss- made (botched) vegan pancakes and then smothered them in fruity goodness. How?
1 c flour, 1/2 c wheat bran
1 c almond milk
1 1/2 banana (mashed)
1/2 c grated zucchini
1/2 t cinnamon
1/2 t allspice
1 t vanilla extract
1 1/2 t baking powder
1/4 t salt
Mix dry ingredients, add almond milk and zucchini, then mash in bananas and cook! I also added blueberries because come on who doesn’t like blueberry pancakes?! Topped with berry medley warmed with maple syrup. Accompanied by Kelly Williams Brown’s fantastically hilarious book. Am I learning anything? Proof is in the pancakes..HAPPY SATURDAY!

Yesterday’s workout!! Ran 3.25 miles to the park, walked around the big loop (1.5 mi) and then ran the 3.25 home- all in all, an 8 mile excursion! Here’s to getting stronger.

Nothing beats a post run (7 mi) Sunday morning breakfast- here’s my 3 banana chocolate “ice cream” bowl with frozen raspberries and a spring of sage accompanied by the nytimes travel section. Enjoy enjoy!!

Just bought 18 bananas for $2.83 so I would say I’m off to a good start

Terribly ugly picture…..but a delicious dinner last night of leftover Moroccan Lentil Soup (Happy Herbivore) and a red cabbage, purple kale, asparagus stalk, onion, and red pepper salad dressed with Dijon mustard! Quite a mouthful…enjoy your weekends!
