Pretending to be Indiana Jones PART TWO

Click here for “Pretending to be Indiana Jones PART ONE“. My family loves Indiana Jones. Thanks to this awesome character, we’ve been inspired to build a zip line in our yard. It took us a while to pick the perfect spot. We wanted the illusion of danger, without the actuality of it (my insistence as […]

Giant Moth

My husband recently came across this giant moth right outside the back door of our house (in Southern Arizona). It was definitely sound asleep since we all hopped around it making quite a racket for a while and it didn’t budge (it did twitch though, so we knew it was alive). It was at least […]

Favorite McDougall Products

I have to credit Dr. John McDougall for my final decision to try a vegan diet 5.5 years ago. I’d been thinking about it for a while and reading everything I could on the topic. Yet, I was scared and hesitant. I was completely unsure whether or not it was a healthy change and whether […]

Vegan Chili Pepper Poppers

Before I was vegan, I loved jalapeno poppers. I hadn’t thought about them in years until the other day when I saw a big pile of green chilies for sale at the grocery store. I immediately thought of poppers! So, here is our vegan version made with green chili peppers. Baked Vegan Chili Poppers 9 […]

Vegan Macaroni and Cheese

My youngest daughter loves mac and cheese. This was her one food that kept her from being a vegan for quite a while. Then, we learned how to make an easy version. I’ve attempted several more gourmet versions, but I’ve found them to be difficult to make, difficult to find the ingredients of (just where […]

Do what you enjoy; Eat what you love; Buy what you pick

I was reminded recently of people who give so much of themselves, they have nothing left for themselves. Loving the people around you is important, but you can’t love them more than you love your own self, or you’ll soon run out of yourself. What do you love the most? What are your favorite foods? […]

Choosing Priorities

Ultimately, what you get out of life is derived by your personal priorities. So, choosing what yours are is highly important. Don’t let other people choose your goals for you. If you do, you will not live an authentic life. This isn’t a “leave others in the lurch” statement – quite the opposite. Only agree […]
