Highlights of the Week
So how has the first half of your weekend been? Mine’s been going great! As I have been talking about all week, I finally got to teach yoga Saturday morning and it was lovely! I love the energy and vibe and the natural high that comes from teaching and sharing yoga with others! I can’t wait to teach again! It is a little nerve wracking to teach in a new town, new studio, new students, but everything went awesomely well. Om Shanti Om!
Scott’s leaving early Sunday morning for a business trip that I had mentioned and so it’s just me and Skylar for a few days. However, I’m going to be getting together with my new gal-pal and fellow food blogger, Madeline. Yay for the internet and blogging help to establish an in-person, real-life connections!
Thanks for the supportive comments from yesterday’s post about why I went high vegan and raw.
And I;m glad you appreciated the multiple yoga pictures. Namaste, friends!
So to recap this past week’s food & recipe creations, here’s my Highlights of the Week. But in case you missed last week’s recap, here’s that one, too.
Monday there were the 5-Minute 3-Ingredient Dark Chocolate Fudge Balls
Tuesday I made Banana Bourbon Vanilla Softserve
Wednesday I put together a Raw Vegan Sugar Snap Pea Salad with (Raw) Vegan Creamy Tahini Dressing
And I made a luscious batch of Raw Vegan Chocolate Coconut Snowballs
Thursday there was Tahini & Seasame-Almond “Cesar” Salad
With Raw Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Balls for Dessert
Friday I made Raw Vegan Apple Crumble for Dessert
And also put a batch of Raw Vegan Chocolate Coconut Snowballs into the Freezer for safe-keeping.
Saturday I told you all about Why I went Vegan and High Raw. And chatted it up about Yoga, too.
An Excerpt from the Post:
“So that still brings us to the question of why raw?
Well, after I eliminated gluten, dairy, & soy, I feel that raw chose me, I did not choose it. Meaning, for me, it’s just easier and simpler to eat raw foods, less minimally processed foods and in as close to their natural state as possible…”
Today I’ve got a Fresh Kale Salad with Steamed Cauli & Sugar Snap Peas. Dressed with Homemade Vegan Sweet & Tangy Slaw Dressing
And for Dessert, I took those Raw Vegan Chocolate Coconut Snowballs that I just mentioned out of the freezer. Chocolate Lovin’ at it’s finest.

At the top of the post I talked about making an online/blogging connection with a fellow food blogger (Madeline) and then meeting up in real life. Tell me if you’ve had any blogger meetups! How did you discover that you lived in the same city or were going to be near the person you met up with? I have to say, I had been in Phoenix 2 months til I even put it together that Madeline and I both lived here and now I wonder if there’s anyone else in the area I haven’t met yet. Anne, Kristen, Bekah if you head north, holler! Anyone else in the AZ area? But tell me about your meetups or if you haven’t had one, who would your “dream-date” blogger meetup be with? Why?
