A while ago I had tried making a vegan mac & cheese with a primarily cashew-based recipe. It was good, but it was dense! It was so heavy and I had a hard time eating more than a small amount.
I gave up for a while, then recently came across this recipe.
I've used it as a base, but modified a bit (as I tend to do).
1 C Carrot (peeled)
1 C Potatoes (peeled)
1/3 C Onion
1 C Water
2(ish) C Macaroni Noodles (I use Go Go Quinoa)
This one has a lot of components, but each is really simple. The dressing was definitely some trial and error so I'll do my best to provide the best guide I can, but please taste-test and adjust as you need!
Make a cup of Quinoa - I added some lemon juice to the water, just because.
I used Minimalist Baker's Vegan Parm recipe for this one.
3/4 C Cashews
3 Tbsp Nutritional Yeast
1/4 tsp Garlic Powder
3/4 tsp Salt
I used the America's Test Kitchen - Vegan for Everyone Currant Scones recipe as a base, but made a few modifications.
I used my food processor for most of this recipe.
1/2 C GF Oat Flour (you can make this by putting the oats into the food processor and blending for a couple mins)
3/4 C GF Flour (I use Bob's Red Mill 1-to-1)
3 Tbsp Sugar (I used 1 Tbsp brown and 2 Tbsp white)
1 Tbsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Salt
5 Tbsp Coconut Oil (I...
There are so many ways to create lasting, sustainable change - cold turkey, dripping new behaviours and habits in, crowding out old behaviours and habits, and many more tools - but what lives behind the actions?

Have you heard of Human Design?
It's a system that uses your birth date, time, and location to map how you can optimally exchange your energy with the world around you.
There are so many components of it; however, I'm going to focus on: Energy Type, Strategy, and Authority to start.

We all numb. Numbing is probably one of our best coping mechanisms.
I numb with TV and food. Many numb with shopping. Some numb with drinking. We all have our ways.
We also all have our triggers. A tough day at work. Getting into an argument with a loved one. PMS.
There are two parts of numbing the first is the trigger, and the second is what to do instead.
I want to say that life isn't supposed to be stressful - and it's not!...
When did you learn being seen wasn’t safe?
When did you learn being recognized in a crowd meant being punished?
When did you start hiding?
When did you shrink into a wallflower?
Sometimes it’s a trigger in this life that your soul recognizes as a danger from another life. Sometimes the time you remember in this life doesn’t seem like it could have been enough to send you into the shadows, but that might have been the...
In the process of waking up, there are many stages and each has their exciting pieces and the parts that are full of fear.
One of my most feared places during this process is looking at the gap between where I am now, and where I want to be.
If you have dreams, this gap can strike insurmountable fear into any mere mortal!
And yet, the only way to get there is to keep moving forward.
Sometimes I get scared of even looking at ...
The inspiration for this came from Erin Ireland and I loosely used a recipe from The Mediterranean Dish for the potatoes.
Lemony Greek Potatoes
4-6 White Potatoes - diced; I left the skin on

2 Tbsp Olive Oil - drizzled on the potatoes
1-2 Tbsp Paprika
2 tsp Rosemary (or another herb you like)
Salt & Pepper
Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees
Place the potatoes into a baking dish - I...
This work isn't sexy, and it may not be quick, but you will feel strong and confident in knowing that these are life-long, sustainable changes.
I'm not going to give you the answers. I will support you and encourage you, but I will not hand you the answers because they would be my answers, not yours. True, lasting, sustainable change can only come from you doing the work and finding your own answers.
It may not be easy, but it also...
