Wagamamas aka the best damn food in London. I know that sounds crazy but my sister and I crave this so hard all the time. It has been the first dinner I have with my sister each time I visit her (hmm maybe it's a tradition now). If you ask for vegan they give you vegan ;) unfortunately it was not gf/wf it has soba noodles. They do something to the tofu (maybe deep fry?) that makes it so perfect and it absorbs the broth holy moly yum! Add some chili oil and chili powder and you are good to go!

Brussels Sprouts and Mushrooms

I'm so proud of how amazingly the dinner I made tonight turned out! I'm leaving in two days for Europe so I didn't want to get all the usual produce I get from the market so I bought this cool bag of little Brussels and sliced mushrooms. I melted coconut oil in a large pan, added the liquid from a jar of salsa because I didn't have any tomato paste, I chopped four tomatoes and let it all summer for a bit. I added chopped black olives, the bag of sprouts, and chopped green cabbage. Later I added in the mushrooms and let it all meld together while I cooked wild rice (it took like 45mins!) and red quinoa. It was amazing!

Hail Merry at Costco

Holy moly happiness! I called them and they had no idea what I was talking about. I took a risk and went to Costco anyway and I found them! Mini treats of heaven yum! 

Mac and Cheese

I was craving Mac and cheese (like the blue box kind) but the boxes are not gf/v so I made my own :) 

I used: daiya cheddar cheese, rice milk and earth balance for the sauce and organic gf corn pasta. 

It turned out amazing!!!

Onion Mushroom Rice Noodles with Cranberry Sauce

It is that magical cranberry sauce time of the year. So all I can think about is what I can add cranberries to. One night I came up with the idea to mix cranberry sauce with rice noodles, mushrooms, and onions. Truth be told it was kind of weird. Not exactly what I thought it would taste like and I probably wouldn't make it again. But the cranberry sauce was good on it's own :)

Surf Sweets

Ok you know my love for this brand and it continues with these delish peach rings! The gluten summit this week has reminded me about the devilish charms of sugar (it's really bad for you {duh} but I love it so much) so I felt guilty eating these until it touched my tongue and I forgot about how bad sugar is and remembered why it's so good!

Gluten Summit Problems

So my Internet has been down the last two days so I haven't been able to hear any of the lectures (sadface) there were two I really wanted to hear but I think I get the gist of what they were going to say (gluten is ruining your health cut it out and you will thrive).

Here's hoping ill hear one tonight

Update: I have internet I'm going to post all the info I gathered on Saturday :)

Here is what I learned from the lectures today (FYI I didn't report or include anything that talked about consumption of animal products):

Avocado Rice Noodles

I forgot about this interesting dish I make using avocado, nutritional yeast (nute) and rice noodles:

Smash up the avocado like you are making guacamole, put the cooked noodles on top, add some nute, and stir: 

The Gluten Summit

I found out about the Gluten Summit via Instagram. Today is the last day to register and it is free. I will watch some of the lectures and post about them. But if you can, Check it out:

Midnight Snack

I am a big fan of frozen fruit (especially berries). Trader Joes has a mixed berry bag with cherries. It's really good! I eat them pretty much frozen but they start to thaw as I am eating them. Tonight I added a quarter of a Hail Merry miracle tart (another obsession). Yum ;)

Rescue Chocolate

I was really looking forward to trying the Rescue Chocolate bar because it was peanut butter flavor but it ended up being weird and kind of gross. Major sadface especially since they are for a good cause! The chocolate was weird and waxy. There was barely a peanut butter taste it was sort of hollow bit crunchy inside but all I could taste was the off chocolate. Unfortunately I do not recommend this because I am going to assume that the chocolate will taste the same on all of their products and it was really bad. 

YumEarth Fruit Snacks

I had the YumEarth fruit snacks last night and they were really good! I was excited for the banana because I love banana everything but it ended up being my least favorite of the flavors. The gummies had a bit of a hard outside and a soft inside which was perfect. I definitely recommend these :)

Happy World Vegan Day!

November 1 is World Vegan day! I happily enjoyed yummy leftovers from Halloween dinner. My mom had Tennessee BBQ for our party so I used some of their sauce and made BBQ Beyond Meat strips for me and my veggie relatives. We also had this yummy eggplant veggie stuff and rice: 

The eggplant veggie stuff:
And the rice and Beyond Meat BBQ

It was a hit! I ended up eating some last night (aka this morning) when I got home from my hween celebrations and today for linner (lunch/dinner).
