Lucy’s Vegan White Cheddar Mac Recipe!

  As many of you know I have been a plant based/half vegan/pescatarian since July. LOL I know that description is a lot but let me explain. So, I have completely eliminated all meat and dairy from my diet with the exception of the occasional piece of fish.  My reasoning for making this change was not the popular, “What the Health” documentary, although that pretty much solidified my choice.  It all started on a sunny day in Jamaica on vacation with friends. I was OD’ing off of Jerk Chicken as usual in Jamaica. And then it came a time where I felt like I heard within my spirit, “enough is enough, stop eating chicken.” Now it may sound spooky to some but after that moment, I put the chicken down and was simply done with it. I had no more desire to eat chicken or turkey, and I had not eaten beef or pork in about 4-5 years. It was at that moment I began to make the transition to a plant based lifestyle. Dairy was not too hard to eliminate since I am lactose intolerant anyway. However, one of the foods I missed the most was my famous baked mac and cheese. I use three different types of cheeses, and everyone always request it over the holidays. In fact, I made a pan during Thanksgiving and backslid and had some! LOL Of course my body felt terrible afterwards, but hey, I had to taste test what I made for everyone else. Nonetheless, I had been working on perfecting a Vegan Mac that I could make when I missed...

Tis’ the season…Or maybe not?

You know how the old song goes, “Tis’ the season to be jolly, fa-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la.”  The Christmas season is officially in full swing. The decorations are up, the parties are beginning, churches are planning their Christmas plays, and yet you feel like you want to hide under the covers until it all goes away. Well, here is the good news. You are not a weirdo, you are simply SAD!  SAD in this sense is the acronym for Seasonal Affective Disorder and there are more than 3 million cases in the U.S. per year. The technical definition for SAD is, “a mood disorder characterized by depression that occurs at the same time each year.” People may experience: Mood: anxiety, apathy, general discontent, loneliness, loss of interest, mood swings, or sadness Sleep: excess sleepiness, insomnia, or sleep deprivation Whole body: appetite changes or fatigue Behavioral: irritability or social isolation Also common: depression, lack of concentration, or weight gain. I am no therapist, however I decided to share this information because this occurs in a lot of people. And if you have recently experienced loss in your family you definitely have to be on guard against Seasonal Affective Disorder around the holidays. Having lost my father in September I noticed when the holidays came around it felt like a dark cloud came with it. My entire family struggled with these feelings and decided to be intentional about overcoming them. I wanted to share a few tips that we personally are doing to overcome and combat these SAD feelings around the holidays. If you have lost a loved one, remember them with a special...
