Meal Plan | May 2014 (Part II)

Ever since I found out about my food intolerances, I have been feverishly scouring Bloglovin. I definitely sleep later at night than I should because I'm searching for bloggers who cook the way I need to eat and make it look easy.

My stream of consciousness: I discovered nutritional yeast. You can add it to nuts to make vegan cheese! I introduced my pastry chef sister to egg-less chia eggs. I finally visited the restaurant where she works. I was reminded, yet again, that the Vitamix does NOT cook soups, even though they claim it does--unless you enjoy the raw taste of warm garlic and vegetables. I saw a garlic plant in its whole form for the first time.

Hubby & I celebrated our 3rd anniversary. Hurray!
