Just a little snack.
I’ve been on a roll making my switch to veganism earlier than I had planned. I have eliminated all yogurt from my diet. I still occasionally have eggs and cheese. At the same time, I am attempting to lose my college weight (about 10 lbs), so I am embarking on finding the healthy balance between vegan and diet and weight loss.
Here’s a normal day’s meals:
- Breakfast: Whole wheat oatmeal with flax seeds and fruit
- Snack: 1 slice of bread with peanut butter (for after workout protein)
- Lunch: Bean soup
- Dinner: Avocado with lemon or brown rice with veggies
I include as much fruit, almonds, and veggies as I want when hunger strikes.
I am going to be including new vegan recipes in the coming weeks as I wean off a strict diet and more into a regular vegan diet.
DIY Dried Flower Vase
- Emptied soap dispenser bottle (this is a Neutrogena body soap dispenser)
- dried flowers
- Clean out your plastic bottle and dry
- Fill bottom with pebbles and dried grasses or stems (these will keep the bottle from tipping over)
- Put in choice of dried flowers (I used lavender and baby’s breath)
DIY Love Jar
- Write notes, memories, inside jokes, etc on slips of paper.
- Fold them up and fill the jar with reasons you love someone.
- Gift it to someone with much love.

Today I spent the day with one of my dearest friends. We started off by getting me some eye medication (I have iritis :/), and then went to our previously scheduled breakfast at Cafe Marcel. We did some shopping and bought old timey slips and head scarfs. Then we had lunch at the Hub in downtown Tucson before heading back home for the day.
Kathie from Two Frog Home has a good idea for re-using the lids from canning jars once you’re done using them - turn them into garden markers. Check out her post to see how she did it.
These look great. They’re definitely going into my garden bed next year.
This is a documentary about speciesism and the food industry. It offers an incredible perspective on our presence here on earth and our duties as creatures of this shared planet.
