Today is a day for CELEBRATION!! Not just because of my exciting news yesterday (tangent: you are all SO amazingly lovely and I felt so much love from your comments that I hugged myself…yes I’m sad…) but because today is…MY HALF BIRTHDAY!!
Half birthdays are *almost* as important as the Big Day for me. Possibly because it’s another excuse to eat cake…but birthdays are just the BEST!
Triple Coconut Chocolate Oatmeal. Made with coconut milk, and cocoa powder, and topped with coconut butter and unsweetened coconut. YUM!
I love cookies. Especially giant oatmeal-raisin ones. Can you believe I haven’t had one of these bad boys since I became a vegan?! Well I sure made up for lost time! They were DELISH and many of them were enjoyed…
(Recipe from the Happy Herbivore book). I had forgotten how much I LOVE oatmeal-raisin cookies! Never again will I go so long without these in my belly…
Birthdays are for chillaxing, and having a rest day, whilst watching your fave TV shows:
(Excuse the slightly dodgy photo- taken halfway through eating! )
My mum’s homemade Chunky Vegetable and Bean soup, with mashed potato and broccoli. Comfort food at it’s best.
Katie’s Banana Muffin for One, with chocolate chips. And I wished really hard and blew out that candle. Can’t tell you what I wished for of course, but I’m sure you can guess…! (hint: yesterday’s post!)
Birthdays are the BEST!!
Do you make a big deal out of birthdays? I LOVE birthdays!! Presents, cake and everyone you love around you…what’s not to like?!
Do you have any birthday traditions? My mum always makes me a nice dinner of my choice. Nothing beats your momma’s food, right?
Where would be your dream place to go on your birthday? New York to see my family, or Hawaii because it’s hot and I’ve always wanted to go!!
Have a great rest of the week friends!!
P.S. THANK YOU for the responses I’ve had to the Featured Athlete posts I’ve had so far! I will email you all back on Friday, k?
