Luck of the Irish-Series Completed!

The day of the final race in the Winter Run Series finally arrived. I originally signed up when I received an email about it (due to racing with the same event company in the summer) with a coupon for 15% off. I saw it was one race a month through the winter, a total of…

What a Plant-Based Toddler Eats #2

I posted a couple weeks ago about what Oliver ate one week at daycare. Now I have some more lunches from the past few weeks because it can always be a struggle to find things toddlers will eat. Though I think my child is odd, because he eats pretty much anything. There was a time…

Gorgeous Food Haul+Trying Zero Waste

Look at all the food! Isn’t it beautiful? This was our food haul last weekend for the start of a new month which means a fresh budget! I was so excited looking at all the food we got because I finally sat down and planned the list and meals again which makes the job much…

Plant-Based Toddler Lunches

What does one feed an almost 2 year old with a voracious appetite while sticking with a plant-based diet? I’ve also had to be conscious of what is easy for Oliver to eat on his own because he has now started daycare. I remember when I worked at preschool and I thought, “Why, parents, do…

1st Birthday Party

Heavenly Breakfast Muffins

Loved by vegans and non-vegans alike, this breakfast muffin is sure to please and start your day off right! Here is my first recipe post. These muffins are adapted from a recipe in my Vitamix cookbook. Basically I changed half of the ingredients to more healthful and vegan options. My husband said these were the…

Food Therapy

Last night we went out for Thai food. After a long week with a teething baby and a sick husband, I needed a night out and some good food! I’ve been starving because I’ve been stuck with food I can grab quickly and eat with one hand as Oliver wanted constant attention. One tooth finally…

My Thrive Market Box

Grocery shopping can be difficult. I have to go to multiple stores to get the best prices and the variety I need. Some items I prefer I can only find at Whole Foods, but the nearest one is 30 min away (or worse if it is at a bad time of day; when I’m usually…
