I made a light summer-ready smoothie this weekend with two new experimental ingredients.
First up is maca. Want some serious energy from a natural source? Done.
Maca is a root. You can buy it raw sometimes, but it’s difficult to find. You can also buy maca powder, which has been dried and ground. Maca has been used in Peru for thousands of years. It is extremely energizing, and is often used by athletes. It has been linked to all kinds of great effects - increased energy, libido, fertility; as a treatment for chonic fatigue syndrome, depression, osteoporosis; reducing symptoms of menstruation or menopause; and is an immune booster! No complaints here. It has an earthy flavor, often described as “malt,” and blends well into smoothies!

Already through three weeks of the Blog Everyday in May Challenge! If you missed the beginning of the challenge, you can read about the challenge here and read my Part 1 and Part 2.
15. A typical day/photo-an-hour challenge (day of the prompt: Wednesday May 15th)
This was so much fun! I ended up taking like 60 pictures this day, and I really enjoyed it. It somehow made the day feel like something special was going on - like when you're in high school and there's a reason to dress up ridiculously. So you just feel festive all day. Felt like that. Here are the pics I chose for a photo-an-hour (I tried to keep food pics to a minimum):

Hello all! I hope you had a fantastic weekend. I had a fun-filled weekend, including throwing a little brunch with some lovely ladies.
I wanted to share how to prep and plan for a great celebration without driving yourself crazy (or busting the bank.)

Happy Friday, folks!
I have an exciting post for you today that is long overdue. I was really fortunate to receive a sample of this awesome product - The Vegg. It is a vegan egg yolk. Just mix with water.
Guys, I cannot tell you how awesome this is. I promise I'm not saying it because it was a free sample (or because it took me WAY too long to get my review up, oops!) I'm saying it because (1) poached eggs with a runny yolk are the one thing that I actually crave but can't find a vegan equivalent for; and (2) it's surprisingly egg-yolk-like.
