Cara’s Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

Pin it

If you’ve been following my blog from its humble beginnings (about little over a month ago, now), you have probably noticed a startling lack of yummy vegan treats being posted here. I love to cook entrees, but I am not very skilled in the baking department. When I went to visit my college friends a …

Petit Vour August 2015 Review

Pin it

Today was such a Petit Vour filled day. I got to take my August box goodies for a spin AND my full sized jar of Routine Cream arrived. Unfortunately, the Sexy Sadie scent has been sold out for weeks with no end in sight, so I ordered Lucy in the Sky instead. I haven’t had …

As a Vegan Anything #2

Why don’t vegans eat honey? This question seems to arise most often in the context of being offered a dessert. A well-intentioned friend will find a cookie or a piece of cake at a grocery store, excitedly bring it over and announce, “I found a treat for you! It’s egg and dairy free!” As a vegan is wont …

Easy Monday Meals

If you read this blog regularly (or at least semi-regularly), then you already know that I’ve been doing a fair bit of traveling this summer. While it’s been a blast and I’ve really enjoyed myself, it does make me cherish my meals at home. It’s so hard, even as a vegan, to eat healthy while …

JB’s Pad Thai

Wow, Sunday evening sure has a way of rolling around fast. Wasn’t it just Friday? The boy and I have a Sunday night ritual: every week, we eat pad thai together. We’ve done so ever since we moved to Austin a little over three years ago. The only Sundays where this recipe doesn’t get made are the …

Saturday Sweets

Happy Saturday, lovelies! I’m so glad that it’s finally here – this past week was a little crazy! I’m sure you’ve noticed that it’s been a slow couple of days on the posting front, but if you’re ever craving more Creature Free, be sure to follow me on Instagram (@creaturefreee). You can find more pictures there in the spaces between …

Vegan in Sonoma Valley

Pin it

I arrived back in Austin yesterday afternoon after spending a long weekend in Sonoma Valley, California with six of my best friends (and sorority sisters!) from college. It was such an amazing trip! If I’m being 100% honest, I was a little nervous about what I was going to eat while I was vacationing. I’ve …

Strong Curves & Vegan Fitness

Today is a big day for me! I finished my final week (out of 12) of the Bootyful Beginnings program from Strong Curves! I really wish that wasn’t its name, because it is incredibly embarrassing, but don’t let it fool you. Despite being a workout regimen targeted to women, it is certainly not easy. Dead lifts, squats, bench …

A Mystery Present Arrives!

Remember a few posts back when I talked about how supportive my family has been? I specifically referenced my mom and how she’s gone above and beyond in preparing plant-based foods for me when I visit home. Today it is time to give a shout out to my dad. My parents found this blog over …
