Vegan blabbing and a photo drop.

Hello Darlings.

Hello Hello! I swear darlings I haven't forgotten a single one of you, or about my precious blog. It's simply that work has picked up quite a bit! I need to work out a schedule so I can keep up with regular posts. 
How are all of you? A while ago I mentioned a little road trip I went on and I thought I would share a few photos and since I knew that wouldn't take up the whole post I thought I would talk a little about being vegan. So if you're interested, scroll scroll scroll! :)

 One of the many rivers/lakes we crossed on the two hour trip. It was too pretty to pass up a shot.
Cheddar's Restaurant.
 Can you believe they ate 6 onion rings and there were still over 20 left on the plate? It was insanity! Also realize we ordered the small appetizer size and this is considered a small. Mind boggling!!
The Frankenstein caramel apple I wanted to buy, but it was a halloween special and it was still a week away. Boo! ... hoo hoo. :( Actually I bet it wouldn't taste that good because of the fondant? I can't tell if it's that or dyed chocolate but that stuff is usually too sickly sweet or fake tasting to actually gnaw or digest. But I give it a 7 for cuteness.

speaking of cute...

Can anyone explain to me why I'm getting such huge gaps when I add gifs like this? It's odd. Thanks in advance darlings!

First off let me throw out a tiny disclaimer of some sort. In all honestly, I haven't been a vegan long so if you ask me about a certain product I may not know it, but I would be happy to test it out and talk about it. However my "noob-ness" of sorts shouldn't count me out since any ounce of knowledge at all is still knowledge! :)

For instance, I made vegan banana bread today and it was incredibly tasty. It just happened to work out for me because my bananas were getting too ripe and my papa has a lot of stevia around because he's diabetic. (vegans don't eat white sugar but do use natural sweeteners like stevia, agave or sucanat.) For those of you who aren't aware white sugar is processed by filtering it through bone char. "( charcoal made from animal bones*) uhm, gross. [[]]*
Crunchy but moist 100% vegan banana bread. yum!

I'm not going to lie to you, breaking my sugar addiction was a very hard thing to do. However now that I do not need sugar like I used to, I personally can feel how much happier my body is without the sugar rushes and crashes or needing a sugar "fix."

Also keep in mind it gets easier the longer you stick with it. I've been modifying my diet for over a month and taking baby vegan steps along the way. I promise my blog won't turn into a "Eat this! Not that!" manifesto and I won't bring it up unless I have something relevant to talk about or another recipe to share.

Have a great week darlings!

  1. Good for you for breaking the sugar addiction. I know the longest I've ever managed to last is about six months ... but then I have absolutely zero willpower! It's pretty amazing how much better a person feels without it though, isn't it?

    1. It is rather amazing! Six months is rather impressive, though. So congratulations on even making it that far! I find when my willpower is next to nothing and a sugar need is growing I take that one bite and then carry on. I would rather take one controlled bite then binge late on a Friday night, haha.
