Mango Salsa

Listen, I’ll be the first to admit that I AM READY FOR FALL. I unapologetically wish away the summer for cool autumn days, and I skip right over Thanksgiving in preparation for all things Christmas. This is me, take it or leave it! BUT I really wanted to squeeze in one more summer recipe before the soups, stews, and warm winter bowl dishes start showing up.

Simple Summer Salsa

So here's the thing. I HATE mushrooms and I HATE fresh tomatoes. I know, I know. How am I even a vegan if I can't get a big veggie sandwich with juicy tomato slices and order a portobello burger at the steak joint? I manage quite nicely, actually. But oh the shock and awe when I tell people I don't like either of those things! And the immediate response: "How are you a vegan?!" I get it though, both tomatoes and mushrooms are absolutely staples within a vegan, plant based diet, but like I said I manage and there are SOME exceptions to this rule. One delicious exception being salsa. Because what is life without salsa? Well there's guacamole--but that's another post!

Healthy Chocolate Truffles

"OH I YUV DESE!"- from the mouth of babes! Also a reaction in direct response to these delectable little chocolate energy bites. With just a few ingredients and less than 10 minutes to prepare they will be a HIT at parties, to snack on, late night desserts, etc. etc. etc. AND I can guarantee they are toddler-approved! My boys thought these were a special treat in place of say, candy or ice cream or other sugar-laden things that turn them into the tasmanian devil!
