Staying Warm while Vegan

…Without moving to a tropical climate.  I live in the Rocky Mountains at 9,000 feet above sea level and I like living here.  Even when it’s 13 degrees Fahrenheit outside during the day and especially when it’s snowing.

Summer Trip Heart Attack

Road food is not kind to vegans…or really, to anyone.  TC and I were eating a very unhealthy breakfast of fries (for me) and French toast (for him) somewhere in South Dakota and he said, “Ugh, I feel like I’m gonna have a heart attack after eating all this heavy food this trip.”  Which led to a certain song being stuck in my head for the rest of the trip…

Multitasking = Doing Very Poorly Each and Every Tasking

Finally, finally, I have been able to rescue some pictures from my broken WD MyBook external hard drive, and I’ve reposted several posts from 2012 with pictures this time. I’m not buying WD products anymore due to lack of durability; Seagate HQ is a few miles away, so I can get “local” hard drives from Best Try, LOL. Enough meta-discussion.

This is another no-recipe post. Lately, I’ve been making other people’s recipes, and I guess it’s a derivative work if I veganise/deglutenise them, but I’m not going to post the full recipes. I made peanut butter cookies and chai shortbread from Vegan Cookies Invade your Cookie Jar by Isa Chandra Moskowitz and Terry Hope Romero. The PB cookies were for TC and I gave away most of the chai shortbread.

Protein Waffles and Workout Channel Reviews

Chococat stays chocolatey with lots of chocolate protein powder! One day he will be able to lift the protein powder jar. For now, he can only scoop.
