Juice Beauty Luminous Lip Crayon

Juice Beauty Luminous Lip Crayon

Juice Beauty was kind enough to send me a Luminous Lip Crayon in Malibu, which is a super pretty nude pink color. The Luminous Lip Crayon contains the Juice Beauty exclusive Moisture Plant Blend (vegetable glycerin, jojoba & phospholipids) to increase skin hydration and the Juice Beauty Phyto-Pigments exclusive blend of rose, eggplant, moringa and eclipta daisy. Love it! I’ve been incorporating more organic makeup into my beauty routine and I’m really impressed with the variety of products that Juice Beauty offers. Malibu is a beautiful shade that compliments my olive skin tone. Give it try and let me know what you think 🙂

Vegan Blueberry & Chocolate Chip Muffins

Vegan Blueberry & Chocolate Chip Muffins

Hey guys! Happy Monday! May your week be filled with my delicious Vegan Blueberry & Chocolate Chip Muffins. Trust me, these muffins will make your mornings a little bit better. After all, who doesn’t love healthy muffins that are packed with fresh blueberries and chocolate chips? You will love this recipe because it’s so easy! I combined oat flour and spelt flour to make these muffins, and the texture turned out to be fabulous. Also, I added one scoop of Sunwarrior Classic Protein Natural to add a little bit of protein. I’ve made so many different muffin recipes throughout my young life but I had never tried blueberries & chocolate chips together. Perhaps I thought that the two wouldn’t mesh together as well as my favorite fruit and chocolate duo: raspberries and chocolate. Perhaps I thought that blueberry muffins were already perfect enough alone without chocolate coming in to steal the show. Well, after a teeny bit of hesitation, I combined them together, and I haven’t looked back since.

I added more chocolate chips to the top right before I baked the muffins. Maybe I go a little overboard but I can’t help myself when it comes to chocolate.

Vegan Chocolate & Nut + Seed Butter Mug Cake

Vegan Chocolate & Nut + Seed Butter Mug Cake

Hey hey! Hope you’re in the mood for some feel good food aka warm Vegan Chocolate and Nut + Seed Butter Mug Cake. How great are mug cakes? After you’re done with dinner and crave something sweet, a mug cake sounds so tasty and easy. A lot of people don’t have time to bake cakes because of busy work and school schedules. However, putting everything into a mug and microwaving it for 2 minutes is as easy as it gets. This mug cake is large enough to serve two people. I happened to share it with my boyfriend and he loved it. The cake isn’t too sweet since I only used 1 tbsp of brown rice syrup to sweeten it but that’s what I’m used to. I added more Nut + Seed Butter to the top instead of frosting or syrup because it’s healthier, and it’s the best thing ever created. Regular peanut butter would be equally amazing in this recipe. Hope you enjoy my friends!

Greek Beans In Tomato Sauce

Greek Beans In Tomato Sauce

“Give me a word, any word, and I show you that the root of that word is Greek.” Technically, this dish is called “Gigantes,” which comes from the Greek word giants. However, I decided to use cute little lima beans instead of giant ones. As some of you may know, I am Greek. “Toula, there’s two kinds of people: Greeks and everybody else who wish they were Greeks.” Ok, so that may not be accurate but I am proud of my culture, and I am proud of our food. Even though this dish does not contain meat, I think that it would still win over Aunt Voula. I don’t know why it has taken me so long to share my Greek Beans recipe on my blog because it’s easy and perfect. All you need is frozen lima beans, vegetable stock, tomato sauce, water, and spices. Yep, it is that easy to make. My Yia Yia (grandma) will be so happy that I shared this dish with all of you because it’s her favorite. She doesn’t quite understand the whole plant-based diet thing yet but I’m working on winning her over. Nonetheless, Greek Beans in Tomato Sauce is a dish that Yia Yia would fully approve.
