Apple Pie Smoothie Bowl

Fall is my favorite season and I don’t know if it is the spring weather that is making me want fall foods or what. Today I attempted this smoothie bowl and it was really good! I have to cook my apples, well any fruit that I eat other than grapes, because of oral allergy syndrome….

Autumn Soup

Have you ever had the Autumn Soup from Panera in the fall? Before I made the change to Veganism I loved their Autumn soup. Now It is perfect for vegetarians because it contains milk but it is not on the Gluten Free menu or the Vegan menu (yes they have both). I cant stress how…
