Such a bomb meal after a bomb day. I caught up on some much needed PhDing, got a great workout in and finished up a new blog post on #LAeats
In the photo: crispy potatoes from the air fryer topped with my favorite hot sauce, cajun red beans and rice - made form short grain brown rice and pink beans, and collard greens
Salad du jour: lettuce, sunflower sprouts, chopped jicama and blueberries with homemade basil hummus and cashew-apricot dressing.
Dressing: 1/4 cup raw cashews, 2 fresh apricots and 1/4 cup Dr Fuhrman Spiced Pecan Vinegar. I used my hand blender to mix. Got about 1 cup of dressing which was deliciously tangy.
Quite busy, don’t caul me ☎️
Summer calls for all sorts of thirst quenching beverages to help keep you feeling refreshed and cool. We’ve curated several recipes for our “Summer Refreshments” series to help you decide what to do with the herbs you’re growing in your Patch!
First one up on the list features MINT, and it’s this Cucumber Cooler Cocktail, a clever remix of tree classics: mojito, gin and tonic, and cucumber water.

I love it how some of our cafes and restaurants are really doing their bit! This is such a great idea. 👏👏👏👏 .

Watermelon Lemon Mint Cooler - I tried to recreate something my husband bought and loved. It is WIN without all the extra junk. So refreshing on this hot July day. This will Nourish and hydrate the body.
3/4 of a blender with watermelon, 2 lemons squeezed, a couple of sprigs of mint leaves and sweeten if needed but I don't think it needs it. So Yummy!

Vegan Philly Cheese Steak sub 🤤 getting creative with @gustafoods
seitan and "cheese". No fancy bread, literally used hotdog buns and tomato roasted pepper vinaigrette. Pretty damn good.
Tonights Watermelon Salad and Sweet Potato Fries were E V E R Y T H I N G! This meal felt like a treat but it was actually pretty healthy.
Watermelon Salad 🍉🥗: Collard Greens, Microgreens, Mint, Watermelon, roasted Pumpkin Seeds, Quinoa and (optional) Feta Cheese with an amazing mint lime dressing.
We also made a creamy avocado 🥑 dip for the sweet potato fries that was essentially jusy guacamole in the blender. So yum!
Last night we started our dinner with this delicious Floral Artisanal Cheese tasting (porcini truffle, harissa jack, and red wine fennel) snack. I enjoyed every bite. 🤪🌱🧀
Buffalo chicken salad... 🔥

Something you should know about us is that we love exploring restaurants and food as you could probably tell by our most recent posts.
We would rather spend money on experience instead of material things 🍹🍽🍻
And a REAL picture.
Guys this is my laundry area,
Its located literally in a closet in the hallway, in between the bedrooms and the rest of the house-
I spend 90% of my day here😁
Not really, it just FEELS like it.
Cause 5 males, and they all love dirty places for play and work...
So yah about that 90%
These machines are workhorses, they run and never stop!
And so are those little white bottles up in that shelf☝️
All things 💛Thieves💛
If you are desiring a switch, please start in your laundry.
Consider this- between the artificial fragrances, chemicals and toxins found in generic laundry additives.
The fact that we are wearing our clothes, sleeping in the sheets, drying ourselves with the towels, wrapping our babies in the blankets-
All laundered with it,
And our skin being the LARGEST organ.
Start there☝️ right there.

Homemade cheezeburger mac and cheeze! Best Mac and cheeze I’ve ever made, and I made it up as I went along. I’ve really been enjoying experimenting in the kitchen recently.
For the sauce I used three large boiled carrots, a block of organic silken tofu, a cup of soaked raw cashews, 1/4 cup nutritional yeast (I ended up adding more once I stirred the sauce in with the pasta), and some water! Blended it up in my vitamix along with some paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, cumin, smoked paprika, ground mustard, pink Himalayan sea salt and black pepper. I then added the sauce to the cooked pasta along with some green peas, then added the cooked @gardein
meatless crumbles. At this point, the sauce was a little thick so I added some almond milk to thin it out, and more spices to taste. I served this with some stir fried broccoli and zucchini for extra green goodness. 🌱🤤 I definitely recommend you try this recipe at home. It feels like it would be super unhealthy, but it was made up of all veggies/nuts/soy! You can totally use bean pasta for a healthier option, and/or substitute the silken tofu for a boiled potato if you want. I prefer the tofu for extra protein, plus I always buy non GMO organic soy. This dish is loaded with plant goodness! 31g of plant protein per serving, and I made about 6 servings!❤️

Cooling off this summer with these ice cream treats from @so_delicious
One of my favourite animals are pigs! Just like humans, pigs have individual personalities with a range of traits and emotions. They are highly sensitive and feel happiness, sadness, grief and pain. Ranked as the 4th most intelligent creature on earth, they are smarter then most 3 year old children. They are affectionate, playful and social beings. Sadly most pigs will never get to play, socialize, or be individuals. The females will be forcibly impregnated, kept in gestation crates, have their babies taken away from them and eventually be slaughtered. The piglets will be castrated without anesthesia, have their tails chopped off and their teeth pulled out and will never know the protective love of their mothers. All of the pigs will be kept in crowded, dirty conditions with no ability to move. They will be fed poor food and drugs to make them grow so big they won’t be able to walk. Even in the best conditions of the friendliest farm, pigs raised for food will be killed and not allowed to live to their natural lifespan with their families in peace. Pigs deserve the same love and freedom that we all want for ourselves and our children. Educate yourself and lead with compassion so we may all live in a more peaceful world!

Delicious Conscious Kitchen organic summer squash +carrot soup! Read more for the recipe! . . .
Makes 6 cups (7 to 8 servings)
Ingredients • 4 pounds of summer squash, slice for roasting • 1 large sweet onion, cut into 1” chunks
• 3-4 carrots sliced • Salt
• Freshly ground black pepper • 4 cups veggie broth • Basil leaves, rolled tightly, and cut into thin strips (chiffonade) and cilantro chopped small
. . .
Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Then, in a 4 qt pot, start boiling your broth. Bring the broth to a boil over medium-high heat, reduce head to medium low and add roasted vegetables. Cool for 15-20 minute, keep the liquid just below a boil.
In a large bowl combine various summer squash, onion and a bit of garlic. Add salt and pepper and drizzle oil to taste; toss to coat the vegetables evenly. Then spread them in a single layer on baking sheet or roasting pan. Roast for 30-35 minutes, until the vegetables have lightly browned on at least one side and are tender. Cover with aluminum foil and let sit for 25 minutes
Use an immersion stick or blender to create soup- you get to determine if it’s smooth or chunky! Add parmesan and olive oil as you are blending.
Serve warm and finish with pesto, parmesan cheese, and salt/pepper as needed.
