    If Heaven Existed, This Would Be It

    I'm so glad the only store I can get these scrumptous Vegan Smores is about 15 miles away. I only get out that way every few weeks or so. But everytime I'm there, I've got to get a Sweet and Sara Peanut Butter Smore. They are high in calories, but let me tell you, they are worth...

    If There's A Will, There's A Way!

    I am on a journey to become a gluten-free Vegan. What a mouthful to say! It was at the suggestion of my endocrinologist actually. I have Hashimoto's Thyroiditis, and autoimmune reaction to casein and gluten. I asked what she though about the Paleo lifestyle, and she said it...

    Trying To Go Vegan, Too!

    I'm trying to go vegan -- went cold turkey off meat, dairy, eggs, fish almost 3 weeks ago and feel GREAT. Eating tons of raw veggies, hummus, beans, tofu, fruit and loving it. Running into bumps, though. Everything is fine when I cook -- my husband will eat the vegan chili...
