Have some balls.

In an effort to get more protein in my diet, I made a delicious snack.

I’ll call them Vegan Protein Power Balls.


1/2 cup rolled oats

2 tbsp natural peanut butter

1 scoop vegan protein powder. I used sprouts vanilla. You could also substitute with whey

1 Flax egg ( 1tbsp flax meal mixed with 1 tbsp water)

1/4 cup non dairy milk

Mix it all together and form into 6 balls.

Decent macros




Rest, reset, go.

  Here I am, groggy and a little cranky. I’m listening to the sweet sweet sounds of the tamale lady roaming the street screaming, “tamalleeeeee” “mole rojo tamalleeeeee”. If I had proper clothes on, cash, and willpower to get up, I’d go down and buy some. But I don’t, so I wont. I failed to… Continue reading Rest, reset, go.

Vegan “Ricotta” and Peas

I was inspired to make this several months back when I was reminiscing over an insanely delicious stuffed shell dish I had. I remember the recipe had cheese on cheese on cheese, peas, parsley and of course, pasta. Oh and I can’t forget the fontina fonduta on top. Since then I’ve been wanting to make… Continue reading Vegan “Ricotta” and Peas


Nature is Nurture.

My ways of re-charging are: Stay at home away from people. OR go out and see nature. Both of these outlets are very important to me. Today, I pretty much got to spend the whole day outside and it was wonderful. Matthew and I and some of our lovely new friends planned a group hike,… Continue reading Nature is Nurture.
