We have had a pretty exciting summer so far. We traveled a little bit, had some family visit us from California and Hawaii, and met some pretty cool people. One of the main highlights of the summer was meeting Ingrid Newkirk from PETA and Dr. Neil Barnard from Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine. First, we attended “The Naked Truth: An Evening with PETA President Ingrid Newkirk” and the next morning, we had coffee with Dr. Barnard, Ms. Newkirk, and other wonderful activists. We had such a wonderful time!

Dr. Neil Barnard (PCRM) is a brilliant man.

Summertime is super hot in the South, so this is how we cool off…. :)
My daughter and I just love frozen banana “ice creams”! It is healthy, guilt-free, and delicious!
- 1 frozen banana
- 2/3 cups of frozen blueberries
- 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon of peanut butter
- 1 teaspoon of cacao nibs (optional)
- 1/4 cup of vegan/non-dairy “mylk”
- 1 to 2 tablespoons of date paste
- 5 ice cubes
Blend everything except the cacao nibs. After everything is blended, slowly blend in the cacao nibs with the “ice cream”. And, serve immediately.
HERE IS ANOTHER SUMMERTIME TREAT!
