Well, I have to start this post out by wishing my big brother an early HUGE happy birthday for tomorrow! He is turning the big 21! I wish I could give him a big hug, but that will have to wait 2 more weeks until we are both done with school! (I did however give him some awesome chocolate bars the night I left back for DC when Spring Break ended, haha!) But, I am so lucky to have him as my brother. He means so much to me, treats me so well, and is such a strong individual. He amazes me with his resilience, calmness, composure, and his capable and bright mind. He is so loyal and has such unbreakable love for his family. He makes me proud <3
With that said, the real countdown is one! Just 2 weeks left! And boy are they moving slow. It's so weird thinking back to that first night I slept in my dorm. It feels like years ago, but also just yesterday. I just have so many feelings about this year, hopefully once I have some time and more time to reflect and gather these thoughts, I'll be able to right a post about my experience sometime this summer. Until that, just go ahead and find some links to click and food to pin! Happy Weekend! XOXO
Tuesday: What To Avoid With A Corn Allergy
Blog Posts and Links I loved this week:
Life, Mind, Body, Spirit:
Lift each other up instead of putting each other down!
You know, because we are all so different! Really!
It gets hard, but it will be worth it!
When you're already down, it's hard to get the motivation to get back up!
Because then you'll be happy and alive!
The physical and the non-physical! We autoimmunies sure have a lot of both!
Yes! Strong is strong...end of discussion!
There are going to be struggles, it's life, but it doesn't have to cause everyday suffering.
Ugh, yea, I should work on this 😛
Totally can relate to this!
Really! Stop making every thing, every thought, every judgement about the body!
I Love this story and how true it can be!
You really need to know when to back off.
This is awesome! Don't put those arms down!
Why does America have to make everything into a "body issue"? Really...Get over it!
These! I'm a bit disheartened by just any (even occasional) practicer thinks they can teach someone yoga. It's one thing to get training for expanding your own practice, but not ever joe-shmoe should teach (i.e. every fitness blogger).
There is a difference!
I'd rather practice is a comfortable temperature. There's no real benefit to the heat anyway.
An awesome compilation of every type of ½ marathon post you'd need!
These are the types of intelligent people we need. Spot on post!
The struggle of eating out with a restricted or special diet.
It's getting to be that time of year when the weather is perfect for a bowl and a spoon!
Just stay away from flashy labels, claims, and processed foods...
An awesome round-up of vegan strawberry recipes!
Ah! I never buy this guy! I need too! So good!
All vegan and all delicious!
Processed foods can be very scary...and gross!
This post is my life!
Exactly why I don't ever actually use other's recipes (but my own that I create).
The overly processed ones to stay away from and the "better" ones. I'd say, just use some nooch!
I think now-a-days as well, social skills are majorly lacking and it's not good.
Makes sense...chew you food and help that belly out! (I need to work on this!)
I love the 3 "why" reasons! So spot on!
Almost everything leads back to the damn digestive system.
Everyone needs to stop taking any "internet celeb" as the guide to their life and health.
Blogging, Social Media, Tech & Photography:
I still can't get on-board with all of these, but I still love Facebook.
This was kinda scary. She's very direct with this, but it is true.
#6 and #7 are most important!
I'm in the process of changing ad networks! Hoping it's a good decision.
Ah! I've got some new blogs to stalk!
He is the king for a reason!
Because blogging is taking over right now!
Safe those plants!
Get out those paper clips! Or any little object!
No....we won't. <3
Yea...I am! These are so true! Haha! College!
One day I will try them!

Kabuli Pala. One fantastic Middle Eastern dish!
Honey Roasted Cauliflower. This is the best cauli-recipe yet! Yum!
Paleo Thin Pizza Crust. And it's vegan! The most perfect pizza!
Spicy Lentil Tahini Wrap. I'm really craving wraps right now!
Spicy Cauliflower Rice, Cinnamon-Paprika Sweet Potatoes & Avocado Mash. This seriously seems like something I make for dinner!
Spring Quinoa Salad. I love the fresh herbs and pistachios!
Risotto with Hops. A beautiful flavorful vegan risotto!
Pumpkin-Almond Butter Red Curry Noodles. Just look at the ingredients and all those flavors! Omg!
A few things I loved about my week or am grateful for:
+ The sun felt really good this week. I was super mindful walking outside and feeling the ground. Those few moments were lovely!
+ Really, I'm just grateful for my family and that we are in this journey of life together, no matter what.
So tell me:
+ Do you have any siblings? Older? Younger?
+ May is Celiac Awareness month, and I know I want to post a lot focusing on such. If you have any celiac/gluten-free requests for posts, let me know!
