This baby girl has stolen my heart!  So in love.

I’ve never recommended a faux meat product to non-vegans/vegetarians simply because none of them (while many are delicious) taste as good as real meat. Well this is a first. We used this tonight in a creamy pasta dish and I was shocked at how good it was even with just a tiny bit of seasoning by itself. So if you’re thinking about occasionally switching things up with your ground beef or turkey, give it a try. It’s very easy to find. We got ours in the produce section of Walmart which was pretty impressive. This is still a processed product and not something I would eat everyday for that reason, but man, I am impressed.

Accidentally discovered a much healthier version of Sprite! Only 3 ingredients. Pure lemon juice, turbinado sugar, and Pellegrino (sparkling natural mineral water). A mixture of lemon and lime juice would have been a bit more ideal but I didn’t have any and I really don’t miss it. Yum!

Homemade dairy free (vegan) caramel frappe made with a blend of Pero (imitation coffee) and cocoa. I also used the caramel I made from scratch and it turned out so delicious!

Homemade vegan twix bars. I even made the caramel from scratch which was quite scary at first!

Whilst it is 97 degrees outside, this baby convinced me I need hot chocolate. I’m afraid of the precedent she’s setting. #pregnant #34weeks
