Day 1, #30daysofGOODFOOD – Vegan Reese’s


So Katie invited me to this facebook page that’s a 30 food challenge. Here’s their description…
30 days, 30 recipes. if you miss a day, double up on another. no big deal. ingredients should be mainly plant-based, dairy-free, and “clean.” we’re talking greens (and other things from the ground), milk from a nut instead of an animal, and whole grains rather than refined. think fresh and not processed. so start your research and make your shopping list. nows the time to try that vegan salad dressing you heard about or those raw almond butter cookies you saw on the internet. maybe you try some hemp seed and a little flaxseed in your oatmeal. whatever it is thats new for you–take a photo, list your ingredients and SHARE it. this is going to be oh so fun! it’s a veggie party and everyone is welcome!
FUN!! Right? And totally attainable since it’s only 1 recipe a day, not 30 days of full-fledge vegan, because honestly…I don’t have the time or energy to come up with that many new recipes (esp being pregnant)…so whether it’s a treat like today’s or a smoothie for breakfast this is a challenge I am fully on board for. I plan on posting my daily recipes here…

First up – dessert…duh. :) We’re starting Sunday Family Dinners w/ my parents since they only live 2 1/2 blks away…and I needed a last minute dessert. I talked to my friend Cassie who’s been vegan for awhile now and she pointed me towards Alicia Silverstone’s Kind Life website, I have her Kind Diet book but have yet to read it all…maybe this will encourage me ;)
