The Vegan Cheese Shoppe Macadamia Nut "Brie" and Vegan Grazing Board

This week we got to try the decadent and delicious Macadamia Nut "Brie" from The Vegan Cheese Shoppe, a beautiful 6 ingredient cheese made from fresh macadamia nuts in Hawaii. The founder, Erin Olivari, who like myself, as a pre-vegan, hade been a big fan of a fancy cheese. She set out to create a worthy vegan version. Her handcrafted plant based cheese can now be shipped directly to your door! We decided to make a big, fun, yummy, vegan cheese and grazing board with this amazing cheese.

Vegan Soy Wrapped Sushi with Kimchi

I've always been a fan of vegan sushi but my husband and one of my kids do not like seaweed or nori or anything "fishy" at all. I've been wanting to try soy wraps for sushi for some time and this week seemed like a good time to test them out with a sampling of the new Kimchi from Nasoya we received.  The sushi came out really delicious with these fun little colorful wraps we found, some fresh avocado, some roasted garden fresh zucchini and farm fresh carrots. We put the four different varieties of Nasoya Kimchi on the side for a spicy touch of flavor alongside our wraps.

Vegan and Natural Remedies for Morning Sickness

I had a mostly vegan pregnancy for my second baby but I wish I had gone vegan long before because I had morning sickness for both of my pregnancies and scientists have found that a vegan diet makes a person less likely to experience morning sickness. 

Approximately 2 out of 3 pregnant women experience morning sickness some experience severe symptoms of hyperemesis gravidarum. 

Here is a vegan list of natural remedies for morning sickness and general pregnancy nausea, as well as natural nausea remedies I've gathered from doctors, professionals, research studies, friends, and other moms. There is everything from raw whole foods to CBD oil for pregnancy nausea on this list.

*Important Disclaimer* - I am not a doctor or health professional...

Check with your doctor before taking any over-the-counter medications or supplements during pregnancy.  You should always speak to your doctor about it first but for those that would like a full list of vegan, natural, and herbal remedies, I've compiled many of them below:

Vegan LA Food Guide - BONUS Thrift Stores and Activism

This is from STUFF I EAT which is located in Inglewood not far from LAX. It is in the BONUS section at the bottom.

As a quick little Vegan Girls Trip right before New Years Eve, my friend and I took off on an L.A. day trip hitting four of the most talked about vegan and all vegan eateries and updating our wardrobe at the thrift stores! We wanted to try some of the BEST vegan food in L.A. and we only had one full day to do it.

As a former and always in my heart, Angelino, I used to drive all over the city for work it was great to see tour some of my favorite neighborhoods and I made it easy for anyone to do with a day trip itinerary and vegan restaurant reviews.
