happy mother’s day and a round-up!

Posted May 13 2012 6:00am

Happy Mother’s Day to all you mothers out there! And of course a special happy mother’s day to my own Mom :). She is an incredibly supportive, kind and generous person who puts up with my moodiness and  indecisiveness and supports me in all my choices whether it’s trying out new health practices (like going plant-based!) or moving across the world for a year. Thanks and love you Maman*!

And don’t worry Papa, you are very loved as well :)

*For all non-French speakers out there this is Mom and Dad in French ;)

Before I forget a few quick things:

  1. Thank you to all of you who stopped by for the Virtual Vegan Potluck yesterday! If you missed my post click here . I made a raw strawberry cream cake and you definitely want to see it ;). Make sure you check out all the other delicious contributions! And a big thank you to Annie at An Unrefined Vegan for organizing it! I discovered a ton of new blogs that I know I’m going to love. Thanks for bringing us together :)
  2. I added a  My Kitchen page to the blog a while ago to show you all what I like to keep in my fridge. It really helps to have a well stocked pantry to make healthy eating easy and enjoyable! I never pointed it out so I thought I’d do that now…
  3. More recently I added a Health & Wellness page where I’m putting any posts I write that relate to health and wellness specifically like dry skin brushing or my cleanse. I’ve decided not to include any of the posts where I discuss the health benefits of certain foods or ingredients, since that might clutter things up a bit (I discuss why I love ingredients all the time!). To find that information, just reference the individual recipes! Also be on the look out for a “Resources” and a “Blog Love” page. I’ll post those soon, hopefully.
  4. I reorganized my Recipes page a little to make it a little easier to find specific recipes. Any suggestions you guys have would be greatly appreciated!

While I don’t have a specific recipe to share with you all, I thought I’d highlight some tasty treats that would be great to make for your mom today, or any other day you just feel like treating her.

Wake her up with breakfast in bed with…


Serve it with…


a Healthy Peppermint Mocha

For lunch perhaps…


a Pizza with Polenta Crust


or Sweet Potato Fries with Raw Cashew Tomato Dip ?

Make sure she doesn’t go hungry with…



or an Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Green Smoothie

Let her put her feet up while you make dinner. Maybe…




or even….


Pasta with Kale Avocado Pesto

Finally, end the day with a special dessert to make her feel extra special. How about some…


quick and easy Chocolate Raspberry Pudding/Mousse

Hemp Seed Fudge Bites (my first recipe on the veggie nook!)

or an extra special…


Raw Strawberry Cream Cake ?

Enjoy your special day Moms! You deserve it :)
