Vegan & Gluten Free, Southern Style Grits
Bite-size Grits & Greens I am not a Southern girl by any means, but I do love me some southern food. Biscuits and gravy, warm cornbread, or grits and greens, Oh MY! Throw in some sweet tea and we're having a party (and making my kiddos & hubby, incredibly happy). Southern cooking really is good 'ol comfort food, and grits may just win as my favorite since they are little healthier (depending on how you make them) and easier to make vegan & allergy-friendly .

Everywhere I turn, Christmas is already happening.  The store aisles are full of decorations, neighborhood homes are all lit up in beautiful twinkling lights and every toy catalog has found its way into my living room.  It is definitely beginning to look a lot like Christmas,,,,,although Thanksgiving hasn't even happened yet. 

Vegan Sweet Potato Casserole It has been over a decade since I stepped foot into a Boston Market but the memory of their Sweet Potato Casserole has stayed with me as one of my absolute FAVORITE things on their menu.  Real baked sweet potatoes, sweetened with molasses, topped with marshmallows and covered with a brown sugar streusel is like a party in every bite. However, the party was short-lived once food allergies hit our home, so I had to find a way to bring it back!

I got my bootie kicked today during my workout!  1,000 meter row, wall balls, 1 arm snatches & sit-ups was my WOD (workout of the day), and since many of you don't know me, let me tell you that I have an INTENSE dislike for the first 3 of those.  As for sit-ups, well, those I LOVE!  Needless to say,  I chipped away at the workout and made it through in one piece, although my legs felt like jello.    The best part of the morning came after class, when I took my jello legs and headed to coffee and get some energy back with one of my friends who hated the wall balls as much as I did. We must have spent almost 2 hours just talking about work, home and family. Those are the best times, aren't they?
