Healthy eatin's.

I know you're probably all like "pssssh whatevsies, Norine. You eat sweets all the fucking time you freaking liar". Oh no no. Oh no no no...let me tell you.

When I crave healthy, delicious food, I'm only looking to go to one of two places. That made no sense.

TAO NATURAL FOODS! I took my best manfriend. He's awesome and got the veggie burger (bottom). I got the avocado rice plate (top).

Ok. Now I'm going to be brutally honest here, mostly because I need to be but mostly mostly because I love this place and I think other people will too. The avocado rice plate is something I typically add a little seasoning to because it doesn't have much salt. There! I said it.

But in all honesty, this place has DELICIOUS food. My manfriend loved the veggie burger. Totally healthy. Totally awesome. Totally vegan. Totally...

I'm getting good at this shit!

I'm so impressed with myself.
I'm going to just take moment to bask in my awesomeness...aand done.

I've been updating weekly like a fucking pro! Are you guys happy? Because I sure as fuck am.

Today, I haz a recipe. Yep. Made up off of the top of the dome piece by my own self. God, I'm amazing.

Here I am modeling the deliciousness of this dessert...I made it for my aunt's superbowl party and it was a hit, as usual. I only make the best shit around, people. I thought you knew...

Okey dokey.

Vegan Chocolate Cream Pie by SNorine (moi)

12 oz melted vegan chocolate chips (I personally LOVE dark chocolate chips)
1 Tbsp agave nectar
12 oz (or 1 tetrapack) silken tofu

1 pre-made vegan pie crust

Process the first 3 ingredients until smooth like pudding. Pour into pie crust and refrigerate for at least an hour. Simple right? That's just how I do.

Also! My good friend and co-host of Midwest Vegan Radio, a kickass, FREE vegan podcast on iTunes, turned another year older! Happy birthday Ryan! My friend, Melissa and Chelsea (who was just on the last episode of the radio show btdubs), made vegan "unicorn shit" cookies and vegan whoopie pies for the Moksha Yoga party Ryan threw for everyone. Both were amazingly delish.

To celebrate Ryan's birthday, a hoard of vegan (and non-vegans) enjoyed a delicious meal at Urban Eatery in Minneapolis. Here's what I had!:

That is the roasted veggie sammy with a side of sweet potato fries. This place is really nice because although the vegan options are not labeled, they are completely open to making sure every part of your meal is vegan down to the very last morsel. Kickass! And of course the sammy was delectable. Psh. Like I'd eat anything that wasn't.

Happy birthday Ryan-I love you!

Here's a new one for ya!

Mmmm Birchwood delish!

Birchwood is a nice little cafe nestled in the Seward area of Minneapolis. I have truthfully always enjoyed going here, though the prices can be a bit steep. I think that maybe that's uuuuuhhhh because it's ALL LOCAL AND ORGANIC. Yap. So, in my book, that's code for "totally justified".

Here's what I had!:

That there is the vegan parsnip sammy with blue corn chips and some really fucking spicy salsa. The sandwich was really tasty for me not caring for parsnips much. It had a very flavorful sweet mayo-type spread on it that contrasted the herby, crunchy part of the sammy. Very tasty.
I also got dessert, because I ain't no fool. That there's the vegan coconut tapioca pudding and a cup of their joe. It was delectable! The coffee had slightly sweet notes and the pudding was thick and rich.
I would definitely come back again to see what Birchwood offers in the seems the menu may be everchanging, much to my delight!
