Hi there and happy Healthy Vegan Friday! I hope my American friends had a great Thanksgiving yesterday. I ended up making an Eggplant Cannelloni dish from Dr. Fuhrman’s new cookbook that I will be sharing on Monday, along with a giveaway! I can’t wait for this.

Conclusion:

I’m really and truly almost done with my semester and I’ve already been spending more time in the kitchen. That’s a good thing because it might just be my favorite place to be! :) Although I love learning about the science of nutrition, my true passion is doing exactly what I do here, sharing my experiences making healthy, plant-based meals and showing how delicious and easy it can be to live this way.

Have a wonderful weekend and see you Monday.
