Week 13 #osgcookbook Challenge

Spring has finally sprung! I’ve been enjoying time outside and even started planting a few things in my garden this week! I absolutely love gardening.  I developed that love during a tough time in my life, and discovered that nothing helped to heal my heart and mind more than digging in the ground and tending… Continue reading Week 13 #osgcookbook Challenge

Week 9 #osgcookbook Challenge

Has it been 9 weeks already!? That puts me at the half-way mark of this challenge. Exciting!!! I did a scan of the book and realized I’m going to have to focus more on the Smoothies, Juice and Tea and the Staples chapters in order to maintain balance from week to week.  Because I don’t really want to close… Continue reading Week 9 #osgcookbook Challenge

Week 5 #osgcookbook challenge

Last week I mentioned that I was slowly approaching the point where the recipes in the Oh She Glows cookbook which I still haven’t made, were left untouched until now for a reason.  Either they don’t really tempt me, seem a little too difficult to make, or have a long and expensive ingredient list.  I’ve… Continue reading Week 5 #osgcookbook challenge

Vegan Cream of Leek and Potato Soup

Growing up, this was my all-time favorite soup.  Once in a while, my mom would pack it  in a thermos for me to take to school for lunch, and I always looked forward to those days.  Now that I’m trying to eat vegan more often than not, I have revamped the original recipe, which was… Continue reading Vegan Cream of Leek and Potato Soup
