(I have been on the waitlist for awhile).  This is amazing news since I am basing my whole life on going back to school next year and now it’s official!!

YAY!!!  Now I just need the money to pay for the tuition and the $1600 in books!! EEK!!

Onto food!!!

I made Mama Pea’s delicious Vegan Zuchinni Muffins

DSC_1243 DSC_1239 I followed the recipe perfect and they were really fantastic muffins!!  D liked them too!!   I will probably make more today!!

I especially liked them smeared with peanut butter!!

There was also some delicious salad eaten

with homemade croutons -  I chopped up some bread (Steady Eddie) added about a tsp+ of oil and then tossed on a bunch of spices, and cooked it until they were crispy… So good!!     More fun than just having a slice of bread on the side!!

D and I volunteered at an Earth Day Festival this weekend… I made sure to pack some yummy snacks!

Apples with cinnamon, almond butter and a mulberry and golden berry mix!!

It wasn’t enough to fill the void of hungriness though, so I popped by my very favourite Zen Zero cart and grabbed an AMAZING sandwich!

A veggie sandwich loaded with veggies, vegan butter and ALMOND BUTTER!!

I was a little weirded me out by the almond butter on a veggie sandwich, but my friends, it’s delicious and will be my newest edition to all my veggie sandwiches!!

I also went shopping at my new favourite healthy food store and they had new flavours of kombucha!

Essence of lemon = so good!!

I haven’t been so good at taking photos lately,  we have been pretty caught up in cleaning out house and house shopping, which isn’t looking so good at the moment. 

We decided to take some time and not rush into it right now,  so our house isn’t going on to the market next week…. it’s a little bitter sweet because our house is so cute, but I also really wanted the move so we don’t have to both commute 30-45 mins each way every day…  we’ll see… things change so easily!!

Anyways, hope you guys are all doing fabulous!!   It’s been awhile since I’ve done any blog reading – I miss you guys!! :)

  5. I prefer earth balance because the local Whole Foods has the soy free version. I'll pay an additional $1 for that and non-GMO, no question. :)
