Good morning everyone! I wanted to give you all a heads up that from now on I will be answering your questions in the comments section, so don’t forget to check back if you asked one! I use to do that, but somewhere along the line I stopped. It’s a lot easier to reply right on the post rather then sending out e-mail, especially because I want to get back to you guys. But if they are in-depth or personal questions, then of course an e-mail would be sent.
As some of you may know, thick soups are my favorite! Especially ones involving butternut squash. This recipe caught my eye awhile ago and me oh my, my taste buds saw fireworks! Imagine your grandma’s most comforting specialty soup… times ten!
You can go sweet, savoury, or simple with this bread–say if you’re just in a toast and butter mood. I also think it’s neat that they thought of incorporating flax into the bread, a good way to get in some Omega-3′s!
I glamorously biked to the event in this gown… just this gown. It was quite a liberating and exhilarating experience, and that’s not counting actually being at the gala! I met a lot of wonderful people from all over the world, and I was so proud of my friend for playing such a vital role in making it all happen.
I love that hot bars let you get a little bit of this and a little bit of that. Now if only everything were as light as lettuce then I think blue moons would come around more often.
I’ve had a very peculiar ingredient sitting in my kitchen forever, but I hadn’t used it until recently. One day I decided to look up recipes that called for pomegranate molasses. That’s when I came across this recipe on one of my favorite sites for cooking: lentil hummus wrap with pomegranate molasses. I also made the red lentil hummus that went along with the recipe, and loved the idea! I have been cooking a lot with red lentils lately, but it was a nice change to what I usually make out of them.
I don’t think he’s had one in awhile, so I thought it’d be interesting for him to try a vegan version. We both thought these were delicious, and had just the right amount of coconut with a bite int0 a crunchy almond to top it all off.
Remember I mentioned the new Super skincare line in my last post? Well, I’ve been trying out their products and seeing how they make me and my skin feel. First up. Lush Lips. Can you believe they got their inspiration for soft skin from coconut oil? Finally, a skincare line that catches on to that! This lip moisturizer has a subtle coconut smell, and doesn’t leave your lips feeling sticky. Last thing I want is to be eating my own hair because it gets stuck on my lips.
In my last post Allison asked me what I thought about the cleanser, so I thought I’d share my thoughts. Since the product uses the famous superfood, açaí, it has a bit of a sweet smell, and it feels soft and milky on your skin as your washing it. The cleanser was gentle enough to use on the eyes to remove any makeup. Actually, the smell and texture made me want to indulge in the whole experience of washing my face. Yes, it actually felt like an experience! So how did my skin feel afterwards? It felt hydrated, fresh, and soft. A wonderful feeling to have at the beginning of the day and at the end don’t you think?
She’s been one of my best friends since the days of… peculiar fashion whims. Who am I kidding? We still have those! The point is that she’s a true blue friend, and I’m so happy to be able to be right there with as she adds one more year to her repertoire as Soul Sista!
I hope you all enjoy your weekend. What are you looking forward to?
