#Glutenfree Monthly Favorites: Vegan Potato Soup, Online Gluten Free Expo & More!
Allll the homemade cheese sauce. I hadn't made my fave vegan cheese sauce for around three months and by the time I was finally reunited with my Vitamix, my taste buds were more than ready. The sauce only makes around 10 minutes to make, but I devoured it for four days straight (before putting the rest in the freezer for safe-keeping). Besides whipping up the usual mac n' cheese, I also did a "sampler" plate of roasted veggies, lettuce and smashed black beans plus homemade chips and baked potato for dipping. Heaven!

Embracing nightly yoga dates with YouTube. Since I work for most of the day on my computer in one position, stretching out at night has been a must. I'm still loving Fightmaster yoga, though I pretty much just alternate between the same handful of videos: Yoga for Balance, Yoga Total Body Workout With Twists (great for helping digestion!), Total Body Workout Strength and Hips Focus, and Total Body One Hour Vinyasa Flow. I admit I'm usually watching TV as I do my practice...but it still does wonders for my body and mindset!
|Me in all of my PJ glory...|
Trying out some new recipes and products. I know I say this nearly every month...but my goal for March is to experiment more in the kitchen. Between lack of time and motivation (plus worry over my finicky stomach), getting in food ruts is basically my MO. Some of the recipes I'm eyeing? This bean (!!) packed trail mix, this amazing homemade cereal (that lists GF cookies in the ingredients, not gonna lie), this "oatmeal" made of shredded coconut and nuts and this easy stove top enchilada.
Hanging out with Taylor at GlutenAway for his monthly Online Gluten Free Expo! Taylor was kind enough to include me in his featured bloggers for March and, if you enter my (virtual) "booth," you can see my favorite on-the-go snacks and travel tips. If you've never checked out Taylor's expo, definitely do so this month. There's an "expo hall" with nine companies offering a variety of giveaways, plus demos and recipes (including a few of mine).

You've probably heard the old saying,"Time flies when you're having fun." Well, in light of this past February, I'd like to provide an alternative: "Time flies when you're working to stay very busy!" I'm sure March will fly by just as quickly...but that doesn't mean I'm any less
Here's to hoping that, this month, good eats, fun activities and exciting plans are in everyone's future!
(FUN FACT: Late on March 1, the day I typed and scheduled this post, I got my first grad school acceptance...so March is off to a pretty good start!)
