The BEST Vegan Cookies

Double chocolate? YES PLEASE! I recently made these cookies (original recipe from, you guessed it, Liv B) for my housemates, but they were so good, I basically force fed them to anyone I crossed paths with. Even my non-veg friends agree that this recipe is a keeper! Liv made these cookies with crushed candy canes…

Christmas Movie Watch List

It isn’t even December first and I’ve checked 6 Christmas movies off my watch list this year. That’s either sad or impressive, depending on how you look at it… I choose impressive. People either love or despise Christmas flicks, and, in case you can’t already tell, I fall into the first. I eat up the…

Fall Favourites

This fall, I wholeheartedly embraced cozy nights in with yummy snacks. I got back into short morning walks, a regular yoga routine, and came to terms with the inevitable darkness at 5pm. One one of my walks, I picked up and pressed some gorgeous leaves to tape to my wall. They’ll serve as a reminder…

THE EASIEST TOFU NUGGETS

INGREDIENTS Extra firm tofu 1 cup Nutritional Yeast 2 TSP Garlic Powder 1 TSP Onion Salt STEPS Pre-heat the oven to 350 F. Slice the tofu into desired shape. I typically make them about 1 inch wide and, depending on how I’m serving them, will cut them into squares, long rectangles, or smaller bite-sized pieces….

THE BENEFITS OF COLOURED HAIR

In the fall of 2016, I dyed my hair dark purple and so began an October tradition. The following year I did the same thing and I knew this year would be no exception. In a previous blogpost, I described the way changing my hair gave me a newfound sense of self-esteem and empowerment that…

Eco-Friendly Ways to Study

Midterms are here and that used to mean my paper waste multiplied exponentially! Scrap paper, notebook pages, flash cards… my desk surface was barely visible underneath my very organized stacks of colour-coordinated study tools. Of course, paper isn’t as bad as plastic and other forms of waste. It typically only takes a few weeks to…

Pumpkin Spice Muffins (Vegan)

I got this recipe, once again, from Liv B. However, I made a few alterations. Rather than the perfect apple-pumpkin spice muffin, this is the perfect pumpkin-spice recipe. Here is a link to the original recipe – I definitely recommend making up a batch of both this fall season. Yields: 12 1 cup golden yellow…

An October (and November) Watchlist

The weather has cooled down and the night is longer. The only place I want to be is in bed, curled up under a heavy blanket with a cup of coffee in hand and a candle burning beside me. To complete the dream scene, of course, at the foot of the bed would be my…

September Favourites

This list is short and sweet; I debated whether or not to post it or not. Nevertheless, September was a busy, and emotional, month for me. I experienced aching lows and tremendous highs. I went back to therapy after a few months off. I pushed myself out of my comfort zone and surprised myself and…

Dream Boards

Anyone who knows anything about the Law of Attraction knows that dream boards are a sure-fire way to start manifesting. If you have no idea what the law of attraction is, it’s a simple concept that is difficult in practice. Essentially, it rests upon the notion that what you put out in the universe influences…

Easy Vegan Cookie Dough Recipe

Okay, did any of you ever buy the Pillsbury cookie dough that comes wrapped like a sausage? I’m so sorry to my vegans for that imagery- I’m frowning too. But you know the one I’m talking about, right? I think I was more excited to eat the bits of dough that stuck to the packaging…

FINAL Summer Favourites (July/August)

MUSIC AND PODCASTS The Vaccines: I discovered this band through their song Your Love is my Favourite Band, which appeared in one of my Daily Mixes on Spotify; I was instantly obsessed. Think of a mixture of The Arkells and Imagine Dragons. Some of my favourite songs are Noorgaard and  I Want You So Bad….
