Chocolate Chia Recovery Drink

Let’s say you take a long, schwetty bike ride. Or you finally do that Zumba class in all its awkward, pelvic thrusting glory. Or you complete a half mary. Or you lift weights like your name’s Xena.

Vegan Banana Splits

Simple, 3-step breakfast potatoes. The BEST breakfast potatoes I've ever had #vegan #glutenfree

Best Ever Vegan Breakfast Potatoes

When John and I started seeing each other, we did a lot of breakfast dates. We both had roommates and it seemed the only way to spend uninterrupted time together was to get up early and share a meal before everyone else woke up. Lucky for us, breakfast was kind of our thing (and still is). Even though John's not a huge morning person, I can always lure him out of bed with these perfect, ... Read More →
