The box that this set comes packaged in is quite nice, although you'll probably still want to wrap it up if you're gifting it to someone this holiday season.

What I Ate In A Day #45 - Vegan/Plant Based

Happy Tuesday! I'm back today with another What I Ate In A Day post (you can see last week's food diary here). I'm vegan, so of course everything I'm sharing is free from any sort of animal products/by-products. Of course I drink a ton of water throughout the day - I try to get in at least 8 cups every day.

Breakfast

Overnight oats are so easy to prepare the night before, and there are so many different flavour combinations that you can create! This morning's oatmeal was cinnamon blueberry, and it was delicious!

Lunch

As soon as the weather starts to dip down I instantly start to crave soup. My latest obsession has been this incredible Turmeric and Sweet Potato Soup from Thug Kitchen 101. I bought this cookbook on sale this Black Friday, and this was the first recipe that I tried. Well, this soup is delicious, and I have super high hopes for the rest of the recipes!

Snacks

Throughout the afternoon I snacked on an orange and an Asian pear.

Dinner

Keeping with the cold weather recipes, for supper I made a Butternut Squash Curry! Believe it or not, this was my very first time cooking with squash, but now I'm hooked. This coconut curry was creamy and delicious,

Dessert

I found this dark chocolate at a Dutch store here in Ottawa and had to try them out. OMG - so good! I'm not a fan of bitter dark chocolate, so I was really pleasantly surprised since this dark chocolate was really smooth and creamy, without any dairy. 

Droste Holland Dark Pastilles

So that rounds out another vegan food diary! I hope you'll check back next Tuesday to check out another food diary. What foods have you been loving lately?

OMG, it's one month til Christmas! The holidays sure have crept up quickly this year, but luckily today I have a few holiday gift sets from Burt's Bees to share with you! And as a bonus, all 3 of these gift sets are priced under $25.

Burt's Bees Holiday Gift Sets

Burt's Bees Beeswax Bounty Assorted Mix* ($12.99 contains 4 of their famous beeswax lip balms in a variety of scents/flavours. These lip balms come with a really adorable gift box, and I think that it would make a great stocking stuffer or Secret Santa gift!

Lastly I have Burt's Bees Face Essentials* ($22.99), which includes a travel pack of facial cleansing towelettes, a coconut & pear lip balm, deep cleansing cream, and a deep pore scrub! I think that this would be a skincare set for teens or anyone in college/university.

What I Ate In A Day #44 - Vegan/Plant Based

Happy Tuesday! I'm back today with another What I Ate In A Day post (you can see last week's food diary here). I'm vegan, so of course everything I'm sharing is free from any sort of animal products/by-products. Of course I drink a ton of water throughout the day - I try to get in at least 8 cups every day.

Breakfast

I started off my day with a strawberry kiwi smoothie bowl! The base is strawberry-orange, topped with chia seeds, blueberries, raspberries, and kiwi.

Lunch

For lunch I made some scrambled tofu and a Gardein Crispy Chick'n Pocket Meal. Scrambled tofu is super easy to make, my husband and I make it all the time! I also recently found Gardein's Crispy Chick'n Pocket Meals, which are made with kale and barley. These pocket meals are quite good - I've never been disappointed by Gardein before.

Snacks

Throughout the afternoon I snacked on an orange and an apple.

Dinner

For supper I made a veggie stir fry with carrots, onions, baby corn, water chestnuts, and tofu. I mixed everything up in garlic hoisin sauce, and served on a bed of jasmine rice.

Dessert

I found Candy Cane Oreos in the grocery store and just had to have them. Trust me, you need to try these out, especially if you like mint & chocolate.
