  1. Homemade Vegan Mayo with Aquafaba

    OK, so I already missed a post, but it wasn’t on purpose. Plus, day 4 wasn’t all that exciting because I got addicted to those soba noodle salads and have basically been eating them for every single meal except breakfast. Day 5 however, was extremely exciting! I even switched up my oatmeal flavor in the morning! Ok, so I only switched it up because I ate all the bananas, but it still counts. I got the hint though and we got 3 bunches of bananas for the week instead of just 2, which got us plenty of weird looks at the store, but who cares.

    So anyway, back on track. Yesterday I had some apple pie oatmeal for breakfast, then my mom and I headed out to do our weekly grocery shopping. Every Saturday we sit down with a notebook and write out a list of 7 dinners and a grocery list to go along with them, including any other household staples, like bananas ;). This is our way of budgeting and so far it seems to be working out really well. With the exception of our loading up on Whole Soy yogurts (no, I haven’t been eating them this month, but you bet I was that last week of March!) because they are going out of business and we are devastated.

  2. Easy Homemade Apple Butter

    Fall is finally here!! The weather is finally cooling off, the leaves are changing colors and falling, I can wear flannel button downs and sweaters all the time. Oh Fall, how I love thee. Not only do I love the weather, I love all the fun things that come with fall. Raking leaves and jumping in them, pumpkin spice EVERYTHING, going to the pumpkin patch, Halloween, curling up by the fire, Thanksgiving, and, most importantly, apples. That being said, I’m ready to jump right into Fall!

    Last Sunday, we decided to pack up early in the morning and head for the mountains for some good old family apple picking. We’d never been before and thought it would be a fun experience, which it totally was. The mountains were just beautiful!
