VEGAN Dirt Pudding

Hi friends! Long time no see. No read? Eh. Let’s not drown in the specifics.

What better time to be back from the dead than Halloween, right? Ahhahahaha {read wicked witch laugh}. If I had to tell you, then it probably didn’t come across as intended. Maybe I can find a green witch emoji face for after it…

That's A Wrap!

Need an easier way to eat your veggies? One that is so easy, you won't even realize you're eating more veggies? One that can be incorporated seamlessly into breakfast, lunch and dinner?
