Taking a brief break from latkes. As it gets colder, I'm bundling up and hunkering down with lots of roasted veg and homemade soups.
Ps. Anyone else binge watching The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel?

Finding the perfect backpack can be a challenge. I want something cute, functional, and large enough to fit all of my necessities (including a laptop, books, 3 inch binders, etc). As I've discovered, finding a bag that fits this criteria AND is vegan is more challenging than one would think. This is why I was so excited when @gastonluga reached out to me. I have been using this bag (that they were kind enough to send me) for about a month now and am completely obsessed with it. It has accompanied me to work, long coffee shop study sessions, and even a trip to Florida.

Happy Sunday everyone! I am enjoying @sweetearthfoods benevolent bacon and harmless ham with greens and homemade biscuits/muffins (they are meant to be savory muffins but I don't have a muffin tin ๐Ÿ˜‚). They still turned out delicious though! 
Now I am on my second mug of homemade peppermint mocha coffee, all curled up on my couch enjoying a movie marathon of my own creation (Fiddler on the Roof, The Ten Commandments, A Rugrats Hanukkah). .
Tonight I will make homemade latkes and video chat with my family as we light the menorah together. All about tradition! A very happy (almost) Hanukkah to all those who celebrate!

Brunch featuring the @followyourheart vegan egg! Served it with a slice of whole wheat sourdough, cherry tomatoes, spinach, and arugula ๐ŸŒฟ
The texture of the vegan egg is amazing! I think next time I will add some black salt to get an even stronger "egg" flavor. 
What is your favorite egg substitute?

Brunch at home today! As much as I love a good vacation, being back in my kitchen and able to cook up all my favorites is such a comfort. Today's meal is tofu + spinach & kale + mushrooms + tomato chutney + whole wheat sourdough for dipping. .
Happy Sunday!

This is the first year my family has celebrated Thanksgiving just the four of us. It is also the first year that (most) or our dinner was homecooked and (mostly) vegan!
Today I'm thankful for this life I've cultivated and the people I get to share it with (including all of you)!
Wishing you all a fantastic day and a very happy Thanksgiving ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‚

I ate a lot of sushi before going vegan. The Philadelphia roll was one of my all time favorites and I would always order a side (or two) of veggie dumplings. 
These days I can easily find vegan sushi rolls (see cucumbers, avocado, mushrooms, or sweet potato rolls) but sometimes I want something a bit more experimental or just a little different. @beyondsushinyc offers an entirely vegan menu with tons of rolls, dumplings, soups, salads etc to choose from. It's veggie sushi heaven ๐Ÿ˜

Simple and delicious.

Currently getting really really excited for thanksgiving break and the thanksgiving feast! Usually my family hosts a big thanksgiving dinner but this year it will just be the four of us. I am so excited to get in the kitchen and cook up a (mostly) vegan thanksgiving meal with them. 
What is your favorite thanksgiving dish?? (Mine is the stuffing!)

Oh baby, it's โ„โ„
Currently dreaming of going home tonight and warming up with a cup of tea and a delicious meal. 
Who else loves the cold weather? I love bundling up inside with lots of cozy blankets, unlimited cups of coffee/tea, and Netflix โœŒ๐Ÿป

It's been decided, I am recreating this salad for dinner tonight. {@lightlifefoods smart ground, black beans, corn, pico de gallo, green onions, and lots of romaine}. .
Side note: anyone else watch The Haunting of Hill House? I am one episode away from being done (and I started it two days ago) ๐Ÿ˜‚ 
Have a great Monday everyone!
