Oh dear, I haven’t updated this blog in a while! Anyway, Rico & I went to Doomie’s Home Cookin’ in Hollywood on Sunday after a photo shoot, and we both ordered the Western Burger! It was so good! It had vegan bacon, vegan cheese, onion rings and BBQ sauce! It was my first time trying it & it was amazing. Also, I absolutely love their fries! AND, we had apple pie for dessert!

Hot mornings call for cold drinks! & today I made a banana, coconut, almond milk shake!
This looks very similar to the previous milk shake that I posted, & it’s just as delicious! But there are some different ingredients.
This time I used one frozen banana, half of the flesh from a young coconut, a small packet of almond butter, 2 teaspoons of hemp seeds, a pinch of sweetened shaved coconut, some powdered cinnamon, and about a cup of almond milk.
Maybe next time I’ll garnish it with shaved coconut & crushed almonds!

I made the most delicious milk shake ever!
I used 2 whole frozen bananas,1 teaspoon of hemp seeds, 1 teaspoon of chia seeds, 3 tea spoons of coconut shavings, shavings of 1 godiva dark chocolate square, and half a cup of Silk’s plain soy milk. It’s so creamy and smooth. 
It’s said that bananas help lighten your mood & reduce depression.
Also, hemp seeds & soy milk have omega 3 fatty acids, which helps reduce inflammation.

Went to Native Foods Cafe for the very first time and I loved it! I had the Portobello and Sausage burger: “Juicy grilled portobellos, our homemade Native Sausage Seitan, caramelized onions, pomodoro, sweet roasted garlic, creamy pumpkin seed pesto and mayo” with sweet potato fries on the side. Rico had the Chicken Run Ranch burger: “Crispy battered Native Chicken, ranch dressing, romaine, carrots, and onions” with potato salad on the side. To drink we had a Watermelon Fresca and Lavender Lemonade, that was probably the best lemonade I’ve ever tried! I can’t wait to go back!

So Vegan Cuts . com is having a photo contest on instagram & I thought it’d be fun to join in! This photo is for day 3, #whatvegansdrink! Of course we drink a lot of things, but I’ve been making a lot of smoothies & I figured it’s about time I posted one on here. I normally use the bigger nutri bullet cup, but I felt like using the smaller one today. Anyway, I made it with red/purple kale, half of that coconut, a whole banana, some pineapple, chia seeds, hemp seeds, and sweetened coconut shavings. & it was all blended with water, of course.

It’s been been pretty cold lately and soups sound delicious. I grew up on my mom’s “Caldo de Pollo”, (mexican chicken soup), she would add whole   chicken legs, chunks of potato, corn on the cob, cabbage, carrots, squash, and it would be served with mexican rice either on the side or in the same bowl. Today I made my own vegan friendly version with smaller bite-size pieces of potato, squash, broccoli, kale, and corn kettles. I also added ginger, garlic,  turmeric, and a whole lot of lemon. I also didn’t use any broth, just water. It’s great on this cold california day.

Today I made what I believe to be the best sandwich ever. A portobello mushroom sandwich with mushroom caps as buns with no bread! I put fresh organic basil & kale, tomato, minced garlic, and vegan mozzarella cheese. I should have drained the mushroom after grilling it since it ended up getting a bit messy and drippy… but it was worth it.

I made the most delicious guacamole today! I used 4 avocados, 4 roma tomatoes, 3 chiles serranos, a fourth of an onion, 2 minced cloves of garlic, some cilantro from my herb garden, a bit of lemon, salt, and pepper.
