There’s a Food Truck Revolt Happening In Los Angeles
As it turns out, my plant based holidays video was very popular. So I am totally psyched to shared more fun suggestions and an opportunity to stock your fridge with a contest for a Whole Foods gift card – like $1500 worth! The lovely people over at Earth Balance shared this new information with me today and I am passing it on. Because who can resist a little bit of sinfully healthy (does that really go together?) dessert suggestions along with those healthy meals? Check these out. And don’t forget Black Friday is only days away. This would be the best time to get a head start on your food lists if you are cooking for the big days or throwing a mostly apps holiday soiree for friends.
Enjoy Plant-Based Holiday Cheer this Year!
This year, leave traditional desserts and heavy holiday meals behind, and enjoy a more nutritious, plant-based menu. From dinner dishes, to appetizers, to delicious desserts, there are a multitude of plant-based options out there to celebrate this special time of year.
When it comes to cooking and baked goods, Earth Balance Buttery Spreads andSticks, Shortening and Coconut Spread are plant-based options that can replace traditional ingredients used in Holiday recipes.
Making appetizers, dips or creamy sauces? Try our MindfulMayo(TM) Dressing & Sandwich Spread for a tangy touch. Peanut and Almond Butter work great in desserts, and Soymilk is a wonderful dairy replacement.
What would the Holidays be without some Nog? Enjoy our organic, Non-GMO Project Verified version, made with USA grown soybeans. For recipe ideas using Earth Balance products (including Nog!) check out our plant-based online community, MadeJustRight.com.
For those of you creating your own plant-based recipes this year, sign-up for our Holiday Bake-Off on MadeJustRight.com, a four-week competition that evaluates original, plant-based dessert recipes using at least one Earth Balance product. Each week will feature a different dessert theme, including pies, cakes, cupcakes and cookies, with two winners chosen for each category, receiving Whole Foods gift cards and a year’s supply of Earth Balance. One lucky winner will take home a $1,000 Whole Foods gift card grand prize! For more information about the contest, click here.

“Awesomeness” wins the day in the current production of Crumble (Lay Me Down Justin Timberlake) written by Sheila Callaghan and directed by Jeremy Aluma (and I still have no idea why he makes an appearance in this show…But who cares! Cool and chemicals Set The Mood. Dude you rule! )
Managing to elude the creep factor of a vengeful, languishing apartment with its own personal opinion of cleanliness and living, a spiteful and troubled little girl with a death wish and a mom who can’t see past her own panic attack induced hysteria or the kitchen, Sacred Fools Theater turns in an amusing, South Park style rendition of a family in turmoil and falling apart in every possible way. Read the review.

House of Gold is a dark comedy inspired by the JonBenet Ramsey murder touching upon the actual murder and the current exploitation of children in our fame obsessed culture, where children are publicly overly sexualized, humiliated, paraded, derided as objects of humor and made to feel like it is all just normal. A scathing behind closed doors, kaleidoscope of Toddlers & Tiaras mega drama proportions on stage that completely illuminates our society, our values and ourselves..read the review (click here)
It is national novel month and for fun, I’ve decided to participate. What does that mean? Well, I’ve gone to the National Novel Writing Month website and signed up for a free account. By November 30th, I will need to have written 50,000 words in order to qualify for an award and possible with my submission a $1000 prize.
Ok, well, I’ve never done this before and have to admit, it’s a bit scary. I’ve been a poetry wiz all my life and basically a short story writer along with making a living as a blogger and more, but etching out a novel? Now that’s a challenge. It will be an adventure to say the least. So far I only have a pathetic 493 words on text edit, but then, I only got started at 11:30pm. Yikes. I will be accepting any moral support anyone cares to offer. In the meantime, if you feel you are a budding novelist yourself, I encourage you to got the site and take a shot. Bon Chance!
