Ever wonder what a vegan eats or what other vegans eat on a weekly basis? I’ve searched many of times what others are eating because, well, I’m snoopy and always have to feed my need to know more of others. So I decided to share my 1st week in October with all of you to make it easier on Google just this once. Here’s my menu plan and the recipes that go along with it.
Whether we like it or not, we live in a society that is very fast-paced. This requires very little sleep during the week and even less time to worry about what is for breakfast. Lately Genki Husband and I have been working 20 hour days, which leaves me wanting to spend those last few minutes of sleep in bed instead of over the stovetop cooking a Full Aussie Breakfast. Sorry Australia, I love you but sometimes it is too much work. A few weeks ago I created these hand pies as an alternative to just toast in the morning. You won’t believe what is inside! So grab this recipe, make a ton of them on the weekend and enjoy them in the morning as you run off to whatever it keeping you from staying those last few precious moments in bed.
Our household has been turned upside down this last week, working almost 20 hour days for 5 days straight. Just after a few hours of sleep a night, we are too tired to make a full meal. That means easy meals are definitely necessary to have around. This week I decided to make Overnight Oats but with two twists: make them with steel cut oats and also make it chai!

There are a lot of great inspirational videos, blogs, books, tweets and the entire endless list out there which state one does not have to prove anything but be happy within oneself. We’ve all seen them so I won’t bother you with sharing these images. While the thought of not comparing oneself to another is perfectly valid and noteworthy, I would like to make a jump on my soapbox and start a new, just as important, trend. Let’s make it our duty to stands up to those bullies sitting around in comfy chairs in schools, corporations, universities and so on which get away with mistreating those “under” them on the corporate ladder. Adults are bullied too.
Fall leaves are vastly changing all around us, so today I bring to all of you Genki Friends this pumpkin coffee cake recipe. If you have not fallen onto the harvest season bandwagon, this recipe is certainly going to have you heading to the pumpkin patch looking for a seat on the hay wagon rides.
Fall is one of my three favorites season, if you are a follower you know how much I love spring and summer. If we could just go from Fall into spring that would be my perfect dream world. But then again it’s probably safer for the vast majority of people to stay in the real world, instead of my dream world. See what is on my bucket list this autumn season.
This last week I went grocery shopping and wanted to do another long awaited for grocery haul. I know how much all of you love these videos and photos so here you go with the video of everything we purchased this last week for under $50 and probably around 80-90% organic, 100% vegan.
The start of October, for me, has always been the official start to the fall season. It is a season that is filled the colors, fresh scents, plenty of harvest, pumpkins and chances to drink tons of apple cider from the local orchards. Even though the nights are cooler and days are shorter, it is a time we can all gather around a fire pit and enjoy each others’ company. To kick off the fall season I would like to share with you some of my favorites that I look forward to this fall season. Let me know in the comments section what your favorite thing is in the fall season.
My mother used to make these croissants when I was young filled with apple pie filling. You probably have seen the type she used out of a can or from a bag sold at GFS stores. Although I only have one biological sibling, my parents took in many others from around the world. It was very uncommon to have just the four of us at the breakfast table; hence, she had her hands full making large batches for an army. In my case, seeing as we just moved to Indiana less than a year ago we do not have a large army to feed. So this smaller version was just perfect for Genki Husband to get a taste and share with his colleagues at work. (Remember I don’t care for warm fruit.) Get the recipe and a baking video at the link.
There were many things that surprised us about Texas on our most recent trip, one being how much the state reminded us of Australia. Something we did not plan for was a fully vegan plant-based fast food restaurant called Earth Burger. It just happened we were traveling through San Antonio, Texas.
