The Best Vegan Coquito

Tempeh Bacon Lettuce & Tomato Sammies (1)

Guys and gals, Christmas is upon us (like 2 days away OMG). And do you know what that means?! Egg nog! Okay maybe not exactly. Not in my fiance’s family. His Puerto Rican side of the family is lively, loving and HUGE and one of my favorite things I look forward to each year has to be the coquito. And last year we had a coquito tasting contest (best believe I was judging and enjoying every bit of it-vegan or not).

What in the heck is that?!

It’s a eggnog-like drink made with rum, coconut milk, sweet condensed milk, egg yolks, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves.

Sinfully Simple Veggie Pot Pies

2015-02-20 21.05.24-1

Happy Friday darlings! I’m sitting here, cozied up on the couch planning for the month of April (can you believe April starts next week?!) and reflecting on last night’s workshop. Yesterday, I co-hosted a workshop with a wonderful yoga teacher, Erica, from Nueva Alma Yoga and Wellness Studio. She led our class through a soulful yoga flow while I led one of my first (not in my home) cooking demos. Holy cow! You know, I am amazed at how obvious the signs from the Universe are when we just listen. For real though. I kid you not. There was something absolutely natural and free-ing about leading the cooking demo and I really felt I was in my element. You besta believe, I’m gonna do more of these thangs 😉

Lovin’ Them Hemp Hearts Tho’

2015-03-03 13.44.52

It’s March but I don’t think mother nature got the memo. It’s freaking snowing again. They’re calling it Winter Storm Thor. Basically, the god of thunder is manifesting himself as a snow storm. And my crazy self decided to trek it to Manhattan to get a blowout (I mean hello, it’s my book release party tomorrow!) and treat myself to sensational hot cocoa at City Bakery (so amazingly delicious, it’s almost like chocolate soup with a marshmallow crouton). I actually had to go get a spoon because there was no way I was going to be able to slurp this bowl of cocoa soup.

I am Officially A Published Author

Hello my amazing friends! I am ridiculously excited to share this news with all of you. I can barely keep my feet on the ground. I am…wait for it…officially a published author. Just a few days ago my very first (but certainly not last) cookbook, Yogi Eats: A Delicious Journey to Nourishing Your Soul, was published on Amazon. It is absolutely unreal yet at the same time insanely real because of how easily this idea came to me. It’s incredible how once you let go of the expectation of how things are supposed to show up in your life, how they actually show up and how fantastic they are for your life’s true purpose.
