    Holiday Gift Guide

    I’m a little late on this as many of you have probably gotten your loved ones gifts, but I’m sure there are other procrastinators out there! I thought I would share gift ideas that add value and are more mindful. I think that anyone would like these, but these ideas are more targeted toward millenials or for foodies and content creators.  Some of these items are affordable and others are more of an investment. Everyone has a different budget for the holidays, so I’m trying to include things for everyone. Before I get into this, I think I should talk about what intentional living means to me. Some people that…

I know this post is a little late, but I wanted to share the recipes. I started out by making Potato Pancakes (Latkes). I was inspired by a recipe I found on Yummly, the recipe app. Here is the original recipe: vegnews Ingredients you will need: 3-4 russet potatoes (peeled and shredded). 1/2…

    Vegan Thanksgiving Recap

    This is a little late, but there is still one day left in November so I guess it’s okay. Thanksgiving can be stressful for vegans or those on a plant based diet. Your family might not be supportive or could pressure you to eat animal products. If I am being honest, I had some of these feelings too. My family has no problem with my vegan lifestyle, but I still had a little anxiety about the holiday. Turns out, it is really easy to “veganize” thanksgiving food. I was so grateful because my parents made all of the sides vegan friendly. I didn’t make a tofurkey this year, so I…
