Sugar Free Vegan

ABOUT ME:  I have been many things in this life. Among the highlights are: Mother, Daughter, Wife, Sister, Friend, Lover, Soul Mate, Graphic Designer, Artist, Animal Lover, Movie Buff, Bibliophile, Traveler, Homebody, Collector, and Food Aficionado. In my journey to become me, I have experienced a great deal of life lessons. I HAVE: lived, laughed, loved, lost, learned, lied, told the truth, danced and sang out loud (when no one was looking), traveled, been recluse, acted outgoing, been shy, become a wife, known hatred and resentment, been scared,  been divorced, been careless and selfish, found myself, existed, shown selflessness and compassion, been content, found my soul mate, learned true love, lived my life, mourned, found and kept true friends (let the others go bye bye), felt beautiful, felt truly and self-consciously fat, doubted and believed in myself, learned to be content again, felt proud of myself, been ambitious and lazy, and become a mother of the daughter I've dreamed of since I was young. I'm always on the look out for new life lessons, in hopes that I can take them on gracefully.

Throughout my life, food has been a constant companion — whether delicious and memorable, or bland and forgetful. The Sugar Free Vegan developed from a passion for good cuisine, a desire to be healthy and the necessity to cut out sugar. While I was at it, I thought, "why not cut out all animal products and gluten?" Follow my journey to great-tasting Sugar Free Gluten Free Vegan food. Cheers!

There is nothing worse than craving dessert and not having anything sugar-free around — especially if your family eats sugar. While my preferred dessert is a quick mix of my Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice cream, my husband and daughter prefer cookies, cake or brownies. To satisfy their cravings, but still serve a sugar free dessert, I make this sugar free chocolate cake, which also happens to be vegan. The nice thing for them, is because of its ooey-gooey dense-ness, it is sort of a cross between chocolate cake and chocolate brownies. One things for certain though... This rich gluten free chocolate cake will satisfy your dessert cravings in a heartbeat.

Vegan Scramble

I've never been and egg person per say, as I have always preferred a sweet breakfast. But, every once in a while I get a craving for a nice and savory morning meal. Recently I started drinking smoothies for breakfast pretty much every day, but on the weekends we try and do something more. My six year old daughter usually requests pancakes (she absolutely hates eggs), but I really wanted something non-sweet, so I tried these faux eggs instead.

Made of tofu and seasoned with spices and the veggies I had handy in my crisper, this Vegan Scramble was a hit for both me and my daughter. It took me a few minutes of convincing her, since they "looked like real eggs" to her, but once she took the first bite she cleaned her plate then asked for seconds — a definite first!  Since then, I've made this scramble a couple of times using whatever veggies I have on hand, to scramble it up a bit.
