Merry Christmas to all who celebrate!
I started my day with some beet juice with lemon and ginger to detox my liver. And my usual oatmeal.
Hope you have a wonderful day!
Brr it’s been chili around here! We’ve have snow and frigid weather. Seems like only yesterday was summer. All the better weather to escape into a cozy cup of hot cocoa.
I had some coconut cream left over from the pumpkin pie so I used that as the “milk” base.
This is stevia sweetened but if you hate stevia, feel free to use agave, sugar, or maple syrup or whatever you like. I use NuNatruals Vanilla stevia.
Sugar-Free Dairy-Free Hot Cocoa
Heat liquid and coconut cream over a stove. Bring to a simmer. Add all the ingredients and adjust sweetened as needed. Serve in two mugs.
And I’m sorry about Caturday! I think I will get it going again in the new year. Between recovering and my Etsy and making gifts, I am pretty stretched.
Now a cup of cocoa sounds good! Off to the stove I go.
I got my Vegan Cuts beauty box a few weeks ago and have had a few weeks to use some of the items. Here’s the rundown:
Overall A good box. I like the size of the items and I will use them all in good time. So far I’m very happy with Vegan Beauty Box and hope to keep my subscription going awhile.
I also added another few items to my etsy including this little stuffed kale.
Check if out if you are interested at Time Travel Tabby Cat.
Some of my fellow lyme friends, blog friends, and other folks who have chronic illnesses are writers, creators, or artists. Since it’s the holiday season and you may be out shopping anyhow I thought I’d give you some ideas to support small businesses.
My friend Lauren is passionate about health and wellness and is recovering from intestinal surgery. She blogs at Ginger is the New Pink has a CafePress store. I love her T-shirts and other logo-ed items. (GMO to Hell cracks me up!)
My friend Angele is a Lymie like me and is an excellent photographer. She has some digital downloads in her etsy store and at Red button you can make her gorgeous photos into cards. Her cats are adorable.
My friend Sharon Rainey wrote a book called “Making a Pearl from the Grit of Life“. I haven’t had a chance to read it yet but it’s on my to-read list! .
My friend Dana crochets hats and she just started up at Etsy too.
I have more people in my life that are very creative but I’ll save that for a part 2. Happy December!

Hope everyone had a good thanksgiving. Back to the regular Caturday grind around here. Above is Time Travel Tabby Cat. Just a figment of my imagination.
Some of my Thanksgiving feast:
Stuffed acorn squash, green beans,
baked tofu with rosemary, mashed potatoes,
and Pumpkin Pie.
Everything was gluten-free and vegan.
It was all delicious!
