  • I tried a NEW Protein Powder

    This lovely find Conscious Kitchen Vegan Protein + Collagen Powder was so delicious. I didn’t do much adding to this recipe because I wanted to taste the flavor.  I did have trouble mixing it, but it was mostly my fault. I didn’t have a clean shaker bottle, and I put the protein in first before pouring in the liquid, and it wouldn’t mix well, so that’s how it turned into a smoothie. Next time ill try it plain. I love how this protein powder recipe is…

  • Chick’n Pot Pie

    This pot pie is from my cookbook Vegan Cooking for Carnivores by Roberto Martin, I have made many recipes in this book but this is one I had been putting off, due to the fact that it had Gardein patties in it, making it a little less healthy. This recipe took a few times to get right. Practice makes perfect. The pie crust was a bit challenging because I’ve never worked with pie crust before, another challenge was that I never had pot pie ever so I didn’t…

If you do start feeling down I recommend cooking this up it helps to fight off whatever it is that you may be coming down with. This soup…
