Day 121 – May 1

Whoa – May 1st already
Holy smokes
Rent due. Tuition due. Bills due.
I just want to keep travelling around in The Pickle with Duncan and not face reality.

National Chocolate Parfait Day, though, is a great way to kick off a week.

I’m about to belt out an elaborate recipe, so hold on to your hats

Homemade Raw Vegan Chocolate Parfait

Cashew creme

  • 1/2 cup of cashews
  • 5 dates
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 3/4 cup of water

Pudding

  • 3/4 cup DIY cashew milk
  • 1 cup chia seeds
  • 3 tablespoons of cocoa
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla

Garnish 

  • 1 banana
  • blackberries or fruit of your choosing that pairs with chocolate

This recipe involves a bit of waiting for the magic to happen.

Combine Cashew Creme ingredients to soak overnight. Combine Pudding ingredients in mason jar, whisk and allow to sit overnight

The following day, blend soaked Cashew Creme ingredients in a food processor or blender.

Layer Pudding with Creme and sliced banana and some blackberries in a cute cup or jar until filled

Then mow down and know you didn’t hurt any animals, you’re not ingesting any puss or antibiotics and you are getting lots of protein, fibre, antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, good fats and Omega 3’s!

Happy Monday, bitches !

 

Day 120 – April 30

National Hair Stylists Appreciation Day !

Although I was on the road, and quite grubby, I managed to find the time to acknowledge the hard work of my current hairstylist Karl @ Axis Salon here in Vancouver

Just look at his magic!

He was also really great at fitting me in before I left to go to Melvin’s funeral. He was super sweet and kind during a very hard time

He also does a few Instagram celebrities too so I feel super special when I go to him

This was the extent of which I celebrated him today- by sharing this photo on social media and speaking highly of him. .. and tipping well!

 

Day 119 – April 29

I got to spend this National Zipper Day & National Oatmeal Cookie Day at Whistler- Canada’s most infamous resort town

Look at me, using a zipper!

Beautiful mountain, beautiful day.

I had an oatmeal cookie,too, but neglected to document it.

And then slept in a van… down by the river.. literally
