Well my week fasting was a bust! I had a last minute road trip across a few states over to southern Idaho for a funeral. There was no way I was going to be able to do a fast in a car for 12 hours a day in a car with several other people. I was glad I was able to make my grandfather in law’s funeral because it was truly inspiring to hear about such a loved and positive man and learn about his life story. He was one of the few small farmers that actually made a good living out of only farming. It is amazing to see the effect one person can have on so many people.
Driving through Montana and Idaho was gorgeous and always makes my husband and I consider moving to a smaller mountain town. I think as of now we are thinking Bend Oregon might be the place to raise our family. But we also haven’t really been there (I have only driven through it) so we will scope it out in a few weeks when we are down in Oregon visiting my sister in law. It seems like the perfect compromise- more sunshine for me and more snow for my husband:)
I have decided to discontinue my “Vegan Mondays Round Up” because I think it doesn’t really work on smaller blogs like mine. I Just don’t have enough bloggers posting their links. I will continue with it in the future if my page picks up with a larger audience. Thanks to Gluten Free Cat , Bite Sized Thoughts, and Sift ,Stir and Savour for supporting the round up!

* To make the layers just leave out the spirulina powder (or something green and leafy) and save half of the yellow smoothie before you add the green to the other half. Then gently layer using a spoon.
