Happy Monday lovelies! I hope you had a weekend as glorious as mine =) I was feeling a little crappy lately with some hormonal imbalances (watch for a post on this coming up), but Saturday I got out of bed and felt great. I feel like things are starting to regulate which is nice.
Saturday was a super fun day filled with good food and good friends, but I think I will save that for a WIAW post.
And yesterday, I got to meet (in person for the first time) my mentor and fellow blogger Carrie from carrieonvegan.
We have been chatting back and forth and found we have a lot in common. We are both vegans who enjoy good, healthful food. We are also both thyroid cancer survivors. We’ve been wanting to meet up for awhile now, but it just didn’t seem to work out.
She was in my area this weekend by chance, so I got the chance to go for a hike together.
The 2-hour hike went by too quickly! When we finished, I felt like we had just started. The conversation flowed easily between us and it felt like we were catching up rather than meeting for the first time. I was also fortunate enough to meet her hubby, Alan, who kept me giggling the whole time with his witty sense of humour. They are so cute =)
We met early enough in the morning to try to avoid the heat, but it was already high 70’s and into the mid 80’s by the time we were finished. But it was a good hike and I enjoy the heat and the sunshine.
I’m so glad to have had this opportunity. It was nice to pick her brain a bit about her thoughts on gluten (we’re both gf) and oil (she minimises, I could probably stand to eat less ;p). Carrie has a beautiful spirit and I look forward to seeing her in person again.
If you are looking for some awesome, healthy recipes – check out her blog here. She also has an awesome app for the iPad and iPhone – VeganDelish. I have the app myself and love it. I eat pretty healthy, but she inspires me to stay on the straight and narrow when I feel like straying a bit (darn you sweet treats and your siren call!) and the app is loaded with recipes that are tasty and nutritious =)
See you all Wednesday!
