Pumpkin Pie Spice Chocolate Protein Shake

I have refined a recipe for an awesome and SUPER HEALTHY protein shake which will keep you going better than your next cup of coffee, banana or candy bar.

It simply consists of organic spinach, unsweetened almond milk, vega one chocolate shake powder, and pumpkin pie spice. It’s low-glycemic and contains NO SUGAR.

“What is vega one”, you may be wondering. Watch the video below and I’ll give you a vega one review and make share with you a delicious smoothie recipe.


This Vega One stuff is da bomb. I’ve had it everyday (sometimes TWICE A DAY!) for the last week or so, and I’m hooked.

I love that I get 50% of my daily vitamins and minerals (and awesome SUPERFOODS) in just ONE pack of Vega One Chocolate Nutritional Shake Packs.

When I have two of these per day, that means I’m consuming about ONE POUND OF GREENS + 100% of my vitamins and minerals. Talk about awesome! It’s the easiest (and most delicious!) way of fulfilling my ‘5 fruits and vegetable’ needs that I know of.

Go make yourself one of these all-in-one nutrition protein shakes right now! Buy Vega One: HERE.

Tempeh Reuben in Ann Arbor

I went to The Lunch Room in Ann Arbor. The seemed like the “best” vegan restaurant in town (after doing a Foursquare and Yelp search). I was looking for somewhere with good food, but also relatively healthy. I found them on social media, because they have good looking fan-posted images and their reviews overall seemed positive.

I got the Tempeh Reuben (I’ve been a fan of good tempeh reubens for the past couple of years).

And… it didn’t disappoint. THICK-CUT, homemade rye bread, with (no sugar added) slow caramelized onion… and sumptuous tempeh! Yum!


The Lunch Room is a highly recommended place to eat vegan food in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

Here is a photo of the inside:


And… the beautiful terrace, outside of The Lunch Room:



I’ll definitely be coming back the next time I am in Ann Arbor!!

I made a video blog post…

I started a new video channel for Awesome Vegan Blog.

I’ll be trying to post more and more videos and start to build a presence on youtube.

This is what my life looks like when I first wake up… I usually reach for food before I even brush my teeth or put on a shirt! :p

This video is about sprouted manna bread and dark chocolate (for breakfast!) and some of the reasons why these foods can be healthy…


Let know what you think! :)

Talk to you soon.

Vega One All-In-One Meal Bars are Vegan & Awesome

Vega One Bars are not only delicious, they are nutritionally-sound too!‎ These plant-based bars are awesome. They taste great, have a good texture and mouth-feel, leave you with a full feeling (as any good meal-replacement bar should do), and have full-spectrum nutritional value, as well as protein.

Vega One Bar - Chocolate Cherry

Buying Vega Bars online is cheaper than shopping at Whole Foods Market.

Whole Foods offers a 10% case discount on items in their store. Even with a case discount, the price for Vega Bars at Whole Foods is still higher than online. The price for Vega One Bars at Whole Foods is $3.99/each. There are 12 in the case, and so that makes the case price $43.09 (=0.9*$47.88).‎

Online a case costs $34.99, or $2.92/each. Even with the Whole Foods case discount, the Whole Foods price is about 23% more expensive than Vega One Bars available online at Amazon.


Yum Yum Yum! Nom Nom Nom!
