Friday Favorites: Is it still April?

Hello Friday! As usual, I'm linking up with a few other bloggers to share my favorite things from this week! February and March sped right by but it feels like April is taking its sweet time. I think because I have a few things I'm looking forward to in May, the days are feeling slow! Today, I'm wrapping up my last two school assignments (for real, I have to get it together!) and then it is goodbye school until September!

Banana Blueberry Muffins (Vegan, Gluten Free & Refined Sugar Free)

On Monday nights my mom and I go to yoga together and after class this week we were both in a baking mood! She made our favorite granola as of lately (recipe HERE) and I tried out a new recipe. These banana blueberry muffins are gluten free, refined sugar free and vegan. And guess what? They taste darn good! These muffins have been the best snack all week long and they're already almost gone!

I might double the batch in the future because even our non-gluten free/dairy free/sugar free eaters loved these! The Bean said they were a bit sandy (ugh my least favorite thing about gluten free things!) so I might try to adjust them a bit in the future. I'm thinking more xanthum gum, but let me know if you have suggestions! This recipe is from a blog called Mama Knows Gluten Free. You can find the original recipe HERE.

Vegan Ice Cream

When I title these posts, I have the hardest time decided what to include. Sometimes I feel like I go on for ever with gluten free, vegan, dairy free, refined sugar free... At this point most all of the recipes that I share will be gluten free, dairy free, egg free and refined sugar free (sometimes they'll be vegan too!). So today, we're talking ice cream but this ice cream is avocado and coconut based, so there is no dairy in it! This ice cream is vegan (so dairy free & egg free) and refined sugar free!

Weekend Recap

This weekend was wild! I packed it right to the brim but I loved every minute of it! Today's post is full of a mish mash of pictures from this weekend!
Saturday kicked off bright and early and I needed a little High School Musical to wake me up! I headed out the door to work and yes, I listened to High school Musical on my way to work. If you ever see me in my car, chances are I'm listening to High School Musical (or old Taylor Swift!). I had so many compliments on my leggings that day - they're Gap but they're old! They are one of my favorites though!

Music for Mondays: You Rock my World

Hello, hello! Welcome to Music for Monday! In a little over 2 weeks, I am going to see Stars on Ice and I am beside myself with excitement! Stars on Ice is a national tour that figure skaters do after the Olympics. I can't wait to see the Canadian skaters who crushed it at the Olympics this year (in my humble opinion 😉)! I saw the show 4 years ago, but I think I'm even more into this time around! Well, all that to say I am so looking forward to seeing Tessa Virtue & Scott Moir and one of the songs they will be skating to just happens to be one of my most favorite Michael Jackson songs!
