Vegan Tzatziki with Tofu


We LOVE greek food. We did our honeymoon in Greece consuming copious amounts of hummus and tzatziki but at the time, we were pretty much vegetarian, so the dairy wasn't an issue. To keep the momentum going, we made lots of falafel and tzatziki at home using sour cream as a base and I seriously could not get enough of it.

How to Score a Big Haul for a Great Deal on Clothes, Natural Foods, and More

* This is a sponsored post written on behalf of Groupon Coupons. All thoughts, opinions, and mentions of stores shopped are truth!

If you've been paying attention, you'd know the deals are off-the-hook right now. It is not quite Back-to-school but stores have excellent deals to get you out there early. Also, there are great clearance sales so you can stock up on summer clothes for next year, or start buying some holiday gifts before things get crazy. 

How do we work the system to score the very best deals? I recommend that you start with Groupon Coupons so you can see all the available coupons and promo codes before you start filling your cart.

Vegan Food at Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo Disney Sea Parks


As a vegan in Japan for a few months, I knew how hard it was going to be to find vegan food at the Tokyo Disney parks. There is literally meat, fish, egg, or dairy in everything in Japan. It is impossible to even find a plate of spaghetti or a SALAD without some form of meat or cheese in it. 

So when we headed out to visit Tokyo Disneyland and Disney Sea, I did a few searches online and confirmed my assumption that plant-based food at these Disney park was sparse. However, with a little bit of research, some success, some restaurants outside of the park, and the fact that you could shop a local supermarket and bring your own food in, we ended up eating quite well!

Happy 100 Years San Diego Zoo! Plus 10 of My Secret Tips and a Celebration Giveaway

I've always felt a deep connection to animals. When I became a mom in San Diego, we began monthly trips to the zoo where I hoped to pass the time with my little boy, my family, and our friends. Our experiences became much more than that, and if you are a local, or have a chance to visit on a trip, I'm going to give you some of our secret spots to visit, features we love, why you absolutely need to spend a day or an evening there.

Statue of Liberty Veggie Platter

A few years back, I created this Statue of Liberty Veggie Platter for the Fourth of July. I published it to a website before I actually had my own blog and it just dawned on me that it was time it was able to immigrate over here! I wish I had some more gorgeous photos and a better tutorial but if you have a little bit of patience, it won't be too difficult to figure out and I can walk you through.
