I love this poster. I really wish I had eaten more watermelon this summer. Something to work on for next year.

These little podcasts from Elizabeth Gilbert (of Eat, Pray, Love and a new book which I want to read) are interesting and inspiring. The latests one with Brene Brown (who is amazing) is a really great talk on creativity!

Why we shouldn’t feel embarrassed about bettering ourselves.

I love this advertising campaign from Kate Spade. Anna Kendrik is one of my favourites.

I made this vegan creamy red pepper pasta sauce with a few tweaks for dinner this week. I was too lazy to do anything besides throw the peppers and a whole garlic bulb in the oven. Once they were baked I threw the peppers in the blender with the garlic and some cashew nuts I had soaked for about 30 minutes. Added water, harissa spices (currently my favourite thing) and two table spoons of nutritional yeast (they really should have come up with a better name for that one).

It is a great Sunday evening dinner when you don’t feel like cooking. Roasting some vegetables and throwing in a blender is as easy as you can get for a cooked healthy meal.

My latest trick is to also roast a couple peppers at the beginning of the week for use in a variety of dishes during the week, an easy tomato soup, as a sandwich topping or addition to a veggie bowl.
