Read, Baby, Read

1. First off, Marissa’s response to the question, “What does health mean to you?” for the healthy living blog community is fabulous.

2. My guesses for the 29 healthiest foods on the planet were WRONG (not even bananas, blueberries, or acai berries?!). Here’s to shifting my perspective 😀

3. Leonardo Da Vinci’s tips are worth reading. If anyone is qualified to offer advice on how to get things done, Leo most certainly is 😀

4. Speaking of getting things done… read this manifesto and you will never procrastinate again!

5. 20 Ways to Detox Your Home is important! Let’s just say my apartment could use a few improvements in the detox arena… since when are wrinkle-free shirts toxic?!

And now, for the food…

Vegan Spinach Dip

Adapted from Vegan College Cookbook

5 oz. frozen chopped spinach
15 oz. jar marinated artichoke hearts
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 cup vegan mayonnaise
1/2 cup nutritional yeast
Pepper, sea salt, cashews, or red pepper flakes (!) to taste

  • Blend all until smooth. Easy enough, right 😀

I loved this spread as a veggie dip. Hope you do, too!

Smile out loud,


Make this Salad Now!

17 Aug

At 1:00 PM today, my boss announced she was going to Spoon, my beloved restaurant, for lunch. At 1:01 PM, I promptly invited myself to come along. You gotta do what you gotta do, right 😀 Above is my Spoon spinach salad, complete with figs, blueberries, blue cheese, and walnuts. I was starving, but I took a quick (blurry) picture with my phone, before devouring 😀

I simply adored this salad. If you’re looking for something DELISH, you must make this salad for yourself right now 😀

Smile out loud,
