Hey there, gorgeous!
Has anyone told you today how fabulous you are!? And I’m not just talking about externally, I have a feeling you are a wonderful, kind individual… and you deserve to be reminded of that. Every. Darn. Day.
In anniversary as an ambassador for the awesome eco-website Young and Raw, I’m re-sharing a yummy recipe I posted to that site earlier this year.
It shocked me to realize I hadn’t yet shared it with Bloom for Life readers, so here we go. 😉 (Forgive me, photos aren’t the best, unfortunately…)
This recipe was created while in Bangkok, Thailand at a live-food, vegan (not vegan anymore…) cancer clinic I was helping to set up. It was a major hit with pretty much everyone – even this jovial Irish fella who pretty much hated anything that wasn’t meat and potatoes.
But hey – each to their own! This was a favorite, and I KNOW you’re going to love it.
