I don't know about you guys, but this week fllllleeeeewwww by. I can't believe it's almost the weekend.
I'm so happy it is though! My mom is visiting for the weekend and we plan on doing lots of girly things- shopping, going out to eat, drinking wine and relaxing watching movies. I get to show her "my Toronto" as well which will be so fun!
But before I go enjoy my mother-daughter weekend, I must introduce Healthy Vegan Friday. Last week was so great, lots of new faces, delicious food and some really informative posts. I am continually blown away each week by the creativity and passion you guys bring!
For those of you who don’t know, Healthy Vegan Fridays is a weekly blog hop hosted by myself, Carrie @ Carrie on Vegan and Katherine @ Green Thickies. it is a place to share your healthy vegan recipes that make use of whole ingredients and minimize the use of processed and refined foods. The recipes shared on this link up are intended to emphasis the beauty, creativity and benefits of a healthy, plant-based diet!
