Shenanigan is my middle name

Who says I am thirty years young?…. *Cough Cough* well, for starters my mom, the government. But you know who to say. Bae thinks I have been seven years old this entire time we have been dating. Heck I’d be fourteen if you just counted the birthdays we’ve had together.

Anyway, all that to say. I am a child in the eyes of most men. Here, let me prove it!

I am on Instagram TickTock Facebook and Twitter. I have several accounts I do the most with my personal account (ohhsilly) it’s more of the day to day shenanigans 😬. This is the only place for blogging you now.

Until next time, xoxo

Also Happy Hump Daaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyeeeeeeeeeee!

  • 2 medium diced apples

Here’s a picture of all the things, this was a very messy experience but I enjoyed myself for sure.

Instructions

  1. oven at 375 degrees Fahrenheit grease the tin or use paper baking cups.
  2. small bowl add flax seed and water.
  3. wisk together flour, oats, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger.
  4. Coconut oil (should be microwaved if not already melted/liquid)
  5. Stir together the oil, carrots, apples, almond milk, brownsugar and vanilla extraact. Add flaxseed mix last and stir to unify.
  6. Combine wet and dry ingridents and stir til unified. (Not too much, you can over do it).
  7. Disperse batter onto tray evenly using scoop or spoon.
  8. Bake for about 50 minutes or until the
  9. Let them cool in pan for about 5 then transfer to desired area for cooling.

Side note: I had some issues with the bake time. The recipe I started with said 18 minutes. This batch came to a whopping 50 minutes. I am using a gas oven but I still had an ongoing 20 minute timer just to be sure. Look for browning on the top.

Please tell me you have tried this or a version of it! If you haven’t, I need you to. Seriously! I am not trying to pull your leg or anything. They are so healthy too! All twelve of the muffins were gone within two hours of cooling around these parts. *Le sigh* But I promise you this… everyone will be talking about them that’s for sure!

I hope you try and share this recipe as it is the best thing to have around the house. Also, the cozy months are coming. I’ll be slapping some vegan icing on these later as a show stopper for the holidays! Look out for that recipe later! 😀

The only PROOF I need!

Meet my adorable nephew, CJ! Every time I see this photo, I scream!

I want to take the time to thank my sister for having such amazing kids! You kind Sir will never disappoint! LMFAO!

Chef Nay has literally done it AGAIN! I literally have been on the look out for a fish alternative. She shocked me for thankgisiving last year and now this. I am taken back for sure.

Vegganer’s Luck Catfysh Po’Boy

Her Po’boy has done the job! You can’t tell me this isn’t fish. So I checked out her Instagram after eating that sukkah and I mean she has been finessing the vegan culture for sure.

I’m talking about Nacho and/or Taco Tuesdays, Build a Brunch, Sunday Dinners, and more. I am in love! Forget kissing the chef. Marry me!!!? 😛 hahaha! Janay, I cant wait to see what you have in store for my stomach.

Like I said, she originally shocked me for Thanksgiving. This is what was on the menu last year.

This is an A++ Menu! PERIOD!

Chef Nay made the mac and cheese, sweet potato pie, mashed potatoes. Let me knot forget the main entrees. Did I mention it was all vegan? Hahaha, come to my house and get fooled if you want to.

But let me add it is so delicious! truly the bee’s knees.

I love that Janay is so sweet and humble. She has dominated the vegan version of soul food. She creates less of a hesitation for such a healthier lifestyle.”

Can’t wait to see what is in store for this year! If you are looking to go vegan. Let Chef nay lead the way. Feel free to check her out on IG @ vegganersluck and her site vegganersluck.com

I have been sleeping on her brand. I swear… I just turned on the notifications on Instagram so I don’t miss any deliciousness.

Until next time! 😀

Sour Apple

Cheers 🍏

So I have been doing a lot of juicing lately. After this trend started I started to make mixed drinks with various juices. This is the first success that I wanted to share with you. There are no additives and I used organic produce.

To make this refreshing treat you will need the following juiced items.

  • Juiced Apples
  • Juiced Celery
  • Juiced Cucumber
  • Sliced Apple for garnish

Side note: I used a cucumber garnish instead of an apple because I only had red apples 🍎 (which would throw off my image). Hint: I always pass on cucumbers! 🤢 Bae ate them both for me. So nothing was wasted to make this shot.

First, pour in the apple juice, this is the base. This should be at least half of the drinking cup. It creates a brown base and makes the drink sweet. If you are worried the other two juices will create a more bitter drink, add a bit more apple juice here. Next pour in the cucumber and then top it off with celery. The two green juices can be equal parks.

Want to shake things up a bit? Make it spicy and add a bit of juiced ginger. I also like to play with the shades of green to see what I end up with. You can do that by alternating the amounts of green juices.

Let me know what you think! Did you like it? Did you add anything to it!?

Yoga anywhere

I chose to do yoga anywhere. I am not worried about who is watching or what I am wearing. So many times, I get the urge to drop it low to the floor for some basic stretches. Breathe through my thoughts and past decisions.

Doing yoga calms me; it keeps me closer to my true self. The flow of my breath and body inspires me to reach for my dreams. As if there is a soundtrack surrounding me telling me to keep moving.

Moving with purpose has seemed to be my most used phrase. It keeps me on my toes; I am grateful for it. This string of words placed perfectly in this order can only bring out the best in us. I hope to move with purpose for the rest of my life. To do something with intent is powerful. I hope it is for the best.

When I wake up, I have to put my intentions first. So I start with yoga. It gets my soul moving. My mind and body are on parallel paths. With breath, I shock myself every day. With my breath, I can take all the challenges into the process and then out move forward.
Like breath, let the things in this world come and go. Yoga has helped me through so many traumas, doubts, fears, demons, and distractions. I know it will continue to do so.

All of the above things are why I chose to do yoga anywhere. I am not worried about who is watching or what I am wearing. If the cloth is as flexible as my body, then it shall be done. Viewers will be JUST that for the rest of our lives. Do what you need to do for yourself.

Feel free to do yoga anywhere, don’t let the stigma stop you. Damn sure, don’t let anyone else.
