Raw Vegan Challenge Week 3_Days 15 to 21

Starting the week I would clean out my refrigerator and get rid of anything that had gone bad or added leftovers to smaller containers. Next, I would write down the items I didn’t have to create my full grocery list of items I’d need for the week. So for example, if I still had garlic…

Raw Vegan Challenge Week 2_Days 8 to 14

  Starting the week I would clean out my refrigerator and get rid of anything that had gone bad or added leftovers to smaller containers. Next, I would write down the items I didn’t have to create my full grocery list of items I’d need for the week. So for example, if I still had garlic…

Raw Vegan Challenge Week 1_Days 1 to 7. Exercise, Meals & Costs

Discussion: Shopping list, Budget, Exercise, How I felt overall, Weight loss & Meals To start my week right, I’d do lots of research, scouring the internet for recipes or I’d flip through Kimberly Snyder’s books for raw recipes I could try. Sometimes, I looked at my own recipes & wondered how I could remake the meal raw….

Snack Time: Cherry on Top &Coco Buttercup Rice Cakes

Snack time is one of my favorite times of day. By the time I am ready for a snack, I’ve had about 1-liter of water and a green smoothie or smoothie bowl, i.e. breakfast! I usually have fruit as a snack but on this particular day I was craving something more annnnnnd these were born!…

Tomato-Bacon Pasta Bowl

This dish is super simple, no kidding. Yes, there is vegan bacon in it. I don’t eat vegan meat often, for a few reasons, but this one caught my eye. Vegan Hickory & Sage Smoked Bacon sounds super good, especially because I love sage! So I tried it and really liked it. I decided to…

Lemon Greek Potatoes

Greek/Mediterranean cuisine is my favorite! It’s fresh and filling. When I used to travel for work, I discovered a Mediterranean restaurant in a small town. This was the first time I was exposed to lemon potatoes. I was, for some crazy reason, skeptical about lemon soaked potatoes. So very tasty. Of course I had to try to…

Elephant Wrap

Elephants are vegan! Who knew? These large, intelligent, remember-it-all mammals love greens… And so do I! Rice Flour, gluten-free wraps are usually my go-to wrap. However, since I aim to eat light to heavy, I am attempting to save carbs for dinner time. Therefore, I decided to use this collard green in place of a…

Lazy Girl Chickn Sandwich

Yes, Chickn! Not chicken. That’s how us non-chicken eaters spell it so that we know there’s no actual chicken in the recipe. I don’t eat much vegan meat but I do have it every now and again to change things up. For this Lazy Girl Chickn Sandwich recipe, I used Trader Joe’s Chickenless Strips (made up of…

Roll-Up Cilantro Cream Sammie

Cooking is therapeutic for me and allows me to be creative. I really enjoy cooking for myself and some people that are close to me. I say some because I am intimidated when I have to make a dish for certain people like my mom, who eats like a traditional Puerto Rican, or a house/family party. As soon…
