Strawberry Meal Salad

(2)

In my last post, I shared a “template” for what I call a Strawberry Dessert Salad. It’s a classic salad with berries, nuts, and sweet poppyseed dressing that I eat after a meal, as a healthy “dessert”. Or, on hot summer mornings I will sometimes eat it for breakfast.

Frugal Vegan: Choosing Wisely

Every now and then it’s good to reassess and take stock. And in doing so I’ve found I’m a very different sort of Frugal Vegan than I was a few years ago. Then, my main concern was saving every penny I could. (I had, after all, decided to start my own real estate business during… Read More ›
