chocolate chip turmeric cookies + a word on anxiety

I don’t have much to say in this post, as opposed to my last one where I described my decisions behind adopting a vegan lifestyle. That doesn’t make it a rant. It’s not a rant. It WASN’T a rant, okay? First, read the post. Then decide. I’m sharing my views, not forcing them on you.

vegan banana date slice

Let’s talk vegan. That is, vegan banana date slice.  But first, just vegan. It’s now been three months since I decided to make the switch to a plant based lifestyle.

austrian torn pancakes: kaiserschmarrn // gluten and dairy free

Pancakes are pretty great. Austrian kaiserschmarrn or ‘torn pancakes’ are a seriously awesome alternative.

Does anyone else consider porridge a healing meal? The warmth that spreads through your hands as you clasp the bowl, the soothing texture that clings to the tongue… Seems to me that porridge is quite the therapeutic breakfast.

dark chocolate zucchini brownie muffins // gluten free, vegan

This isn’t a new recipe. I guess it’s not really an old recipe either. It would be more appropriate to say it’s a recycled recipe.
