Since we turned vegan, Greg and I have fallen in love with smoothies! Ours are a bit different, however. They're protein smoothies!!

We use chocolate almond milk and Nutiva hemp powder for our smoothies. I've actually been known to make a hemp milkshake with the chocolate almond milk. It's makes an excellent snack, and since it's protein, it keeps hunger at bay for a couple of hours.

Vitamin C: What Your Doctor Won't Tell You

I recently had a conversation on Twitter with a blogger friend who happened to have a cold. Like most people, this person thought that taking too much vitamin C could be harmful rather than beneficial.

I thought the same thing until recently.

A few months ago, I read the book "Vitamin C: The Real Story" by Steve Hickey, PhD. and Andrew Saul, PhD. This book taught me so much about this miracle vitamin.

Life as a Vegan Mom

I haven't really done all that much with this blog, which is really a shame because I've come up with some great vegan recipes over the past year.

But I didn't have any direction, and I had no idea what I was doing. 

I was new to blogging, and being a WAHM in general. I quickly became overwhelmed with the typical duties of a mom such as cleaning, and taking care of our daughter. Like most people in the current economy we also had (and still have) our fair share of financial issues, which only added to the stress.

Our financial problems just seemed to spiral out of control after Greg (my husband) was injured at work. He was denied workman's compensation and the ensuing legal battle moved my freelance writing/blogging career to the back burner, and then off the stove entirely.
