Well friends, we successfully made it to Friday. Hallelujah. This week has been a little crazy for me. Mostly good crazy, but crazy nonetheless. I’ll be sharing all that’s new in my life soon!

What’s new with you? Any exciting plans for the weekend?

Before you get too excited, here’s an awesome vegan smoothie recipe for you. I’ve been making this for breakfast most mornings, but it’s perfect for an anytime snack too!

Thai Inspired Quinoa Salad

Because you need to make this salad.

Like right now.

I don’t eat leftovers, but I would seriously scrape the bowl for days for this guy.

I’m kind of in love.

Did I mention it’s VEGAN?

This is the perfect summer salad. Easy to make, easy to enjoy.
