    Alkaline/Vegan Chickpea Nuggets

    Hey, y’all!  We’re going to go ahead and jump right on in with the post for today- which is gonna be a quick one. As I’m sure you’ve already gathered from the title, it’s another recipe. However, it’s not just any ol’ recipe… No ma’am. This has been one of the most popular pins on my Pinterest and one of the most highly requested recipes since.  This picture was my first, and for a long time my only attempt at these mock chicken nuggets/chickpea nuggets.  Originally, it was just an experiment so I didn’t have a real concrete recipe that I was able to share. The first go around they were good-ish. They didn’t really turn out the way I had expected them…

    Internet Diary: Momma’s making progress!

    Hey, y’all! Oh goodness, it’s been quite a long time since my last entry, Mommy Meltdown. So much has gone on in between the time- I got better, I got worse, I got waaaay worse, I got better, I got waaaay better… you get the point. It’s been one heck of an emotional ride. Anyway, right now, I’m actually doing… good. More like great! I’m in such a great place right now and I feel amazing about it. I’d like to share that with you, if you don’t mind. I mentioned in my 2018- A year in review post that one of my biggest takeaways from the year was self…

    Alkaline/Vegan Apple Turnovers

    Hey, y’all! Happy Tuesday to you all! I hope you are all doing well and feeling well, too. I, myself, am doing well but a little overwhelmed, too,  if I’m to be honest- it’s been quite the busy month for me. Anyway, it’s almost over! And since it’s almost over, I definitely didn’t want to finish off the month without posting a recipe for you guys. Now, it’s been a looooong time since my last recipe and that’s solely due to the fact that getting re-acclimated into the Alkaline Vegan Lifestyle, in conjunction with everything else that has been going on, has been hard to say the very least. I…

    The Labor and Delivery Story of my Natural Water Birth at a Birth Center

    Hey, y’all! I hope you are all doing well and having a good, productive week so far. I’m not going to spend too much time rambling here because, as you can tell from the title, I’ve got a story to tell- so I’m going to jump right in! Last year, January 15th, I had one of the best days of my life. The birth of my son was such an amazingly magical experience and I couldn’t have dreamed of it being any more perfect if I tried. I’d like to share with you the labor and delivery story of my natural water birth at a birth center. After all, what…

    Just a thought- Never stop being great!

    There are a lot of things in this world- systems if you will- designed to stop you from being great. Do not be ashamed to be strong, intelligent, well-spoken, confident, or any other adjective that may describe who you are. Take your superpower– you know, that thing that intimidates folk the most and use it to your advantage. In other words- keep on shining, boo! Keep making em’ mad!

    So, it’s a new year… My 2019 Goals

    Hello, lovelies! Another week, another blog post. But before we get started on our topic today… HAPPY NEW YEAR Y’ALL! I hope all of you had a very positive, very safe holiday. I brought in the New Year sleeping- it was a wondrous, joyous experience. Well, I was sleep before midnight and then I was awake to send and return a couple of “Happy New Year” texts, and then back to sleep I went. Completely uneventful but in all honesty, it was just like I like it. Anywho, back to the reason we’re here today. I thought it’d be nice to start off the new year on a good, and…

    2018- A year in review.

    Hello, hello! Hello, family. Yes, I know… I’ve been gone for quite some time. My honest and true apologies for the inconsistencies. I will say that while it wasn’t ideal to be gone for so long, it was necessary. I promise, you’ll understand why soon enough… But that’s not why we’re here today! Although, through this post you will get a general idea of everything I had going on. Either way, y’all… the year is almost over! 2018 is out and 2019 is rolling in. Wow. This year literally zoomed by and it didn’t leave anything out. It’s been a pretty jam packed year for me and I want to…

    Black Love, can I get an amen?

    Hey, y’all! First off, do you see me out here in these streets trying to be all consistent and what not? I’m trying, I’m trying! But anyway, I just had to come on and talk about this topic because I’ve been excited and here for it but it’s evolving and growing and I’m like really, really here for it now, you know? Let me just explain. I’ll start off by saying this… I am so sick and tired of the way we are portrayed on TV and in the media. Actually, how about I’m so sick and tired of the way we are portrayed in general. Point, blank, and the period.…

    Internet Diary: Mommy Meltdown

    Hey, y’all!  Yes, I’ve got some serious explaining to do- however, I’m sure by the title of this post, you already get it.  Although things have been tough lately, and I’ll get into all the details of that in just a moment, it really does break my heart to be away for so long. It seriously does. This is my freedom so imagine being removed from the thing that makes you feel free.  Let me just jump right in.  Y’all, I had a meltdown.  And not just a cute little set back either, like a meltdown, meltdown. You know what I mean? I got a question…  Riddle me this, has one truly…
