What made May so great? Let's find out!
What I'm Eating
Veggie dumpling soup. I use this crockpot recipe and made the dumplings vegan by subbing coconut milk and Earth Balance butter. The dumplings are (very) temperamental, my family has devoured the soup both times we've made it so far! Sometimes I have it with chicken; sometimes I eat it with black beans for plant based protein instead. Either way, I love adding lots of zoodles and squoodles (Is that what squash noodles are called?) and eating some creamy avocado and crisp green beans on the side. Yum! (Even if summer weather can make this a rather...sweaty dinner.)
Lots of new gluten free goodies. Thanks to Celiac Awareness Month, my postman was kept busy delivering products. The funniest comment? He saw my shipment of New Zealand jerky and muttered, "New Zealand? That's a new one!"
Smoothie bowls all day every day - sometimes I even take one to work with me! As long as you have a big enough bowl to mix in your toppings, it can actually be a very office-friendly brunch.
What I'm Doing
Enjoying being freeeee from school! Although I'm still studying for the GRE (a grad school entrance exam), it's awesome to have more time to relax and experiment in the kitchen.

Working at my dream internship! As I'm sure you'll hear about more as the summer progresses, I'm officially a part time Editorial Intern for Entity Magazine. Entity will be launching its online magazine this July - and I'm helping write the articles for it! I love that Entity is focused on empowering women. Looking at the kick-butt female staff I'm working with, I know Entity (and I) will succeed!
What I'm Planning
Exploring Disneyland with the family! Watch out Mickey Mouse - this month, the Cromwells will be adventuring for a few days in the Happiest Place on Earth. If you have any suggestions for gluten free places to eat, comment below, email or tweet me!
Sharing a long overdue product review of So Delicious's cashew-based ice creams! Plus lots of Canyon Bakehouse products. After all, what's more popular in summer than ice cream and BBQ-friendly foods?
Working...working...working...three days a week, 9-5. My first real job - so if I ever miss a blog post here or there, you know why!
As quickly as May flew by, it sent plenty of blessings my way. You've probably heard of the saying, "April showers bring May flowers." If my life is blooming now, I can't wait to see the adventures of June!
