back to basics ~ trail mix


The Fall is an incredibly beautiful yet busy time for me- between work and fitting in all the amazing Fall fun it can be hard to keep fueled throughout the day. To save the day and to keep from getting HANGRY I tend to keep a container of trail mix with me at all times. It really is the best for everyone involved - a Hangry Heather is not a Happy Heather. 

The easy way out is to purchase a big bag of pre made trail mix, however I like to throw together my own in a mason jar, seriously it is just as easy as buying a bag but better. The mix varies week to week depending on what I have on hand. I like to toss in the lat bits of nuts or seeds, the bottom of the bag so to speak.

back to basics ~ tofu scramble

Sometimes it is nice just to get back to the basics, not every meal needs to be extravagant or take hours to make.  Today I am sharing with you a very basic tofu scramble recipe that is a staple recipe in our house. From this recipe you can get as creative as you want- throw in some salsa, shredded swiss char, baby spinach or just serve it up as is. This is also the base of my homemade breakfast burritos - tofu scramble, dice red potatoes, diced up vegan bacon and vegan cheddar cheese. I wrap these up in a large flour tortilla, then in foil and allow them to cool prior to serving.
