Cocoa, banana, avocado and almond butter smoothie with pumpkin seeds.

The thickest, creamiest and most delicious smoothie I’ve ever made. You could so easily fool someone in to thinking this was an unhealthy milkshake. I’m bad at photographing smoothies but I had to document this one!!

Recipe: 1 small avocado, 1 verrrry ripe banana, 1 tbsp cocoa, 1 tbsp almond butter, 1 cup ~ish almond milk and a few ice cubes.

Raw, vegan and chocolate truffles! (recipe here.)

I changed a few of the ingredients to suit what I already had - in place of hazelnuts I used Brazils and almonds, cocoa instead of cacao, maple syrup instead of agave and flax instead of chia. They still worked perfectly, though! I rolled them in a little more cocoa and now they’re firming up in the fridge.

Spoiler: they’re scrumptious.

Food prep for a few days away. :)
I’m spending a few days with a friend, now that she’s finished uni, which I’m super excited for - however I hate being a burden with food! I’m taking a few train journeys to see her so I’ll eat one salad then and leave one for tomorrow probably. I find others’ food prep interesting so here’s mine! :D
2x salads made with iceberg lettuce, red and yellow bell pepper, sugarsnap peas, cucumber, cherry tomatoes, grilled asparagus, leftover homemade pasta salad, mint couscous and tomato salsa;
1x ripe mango;
1x cocoa orange Nakd bar;
1x box of orange, lemon and lime tea bags;
2x single serving portions of gf porridge, made with rice, millet and buckwheat flakes (free from Vegfest!!).
Obviously this isn’t 3 days worth of food but it’s enough to not be a huge pest. ^_^

Tofu Pad Thai from Vegfest, Bristol.
This is the best thing I’ve ever put in my mouth, unf. (Seriously!! so good) I went to Vegfest on Saturday but after munching on several free samples (including raw gingerbread, vegan cheese and crackers, lots of chocolate and maple roasted nuts) and a roasted broccoli, carrot and sunflower seed salad, Fererro Rocher cake from Ms. Cupcake, cinnamon twist bigger than my head, some cinnamon sugar dusted churros with a lemon zest dipping sauce (J’s… some accidentally fell in to my mouth) and a seitan steak sandwich (also J’s.. shh) I simply had no room for these noodles!
So, naturally, J and I had to go back to Vegfest on the Sunday where I tried all my favourite free samples again, bought a peanut butter brownie from Ms. Cupcake and THEN we made it to the Pad Thai station. It was £6 for this box which isn’t particularly cheap (or £7 for marinated shitake mushrooms - worth paying more for if you have a bigger stomach than me) but seeing as I’d happily sit down in a restaurant and be equally as satisfied and prepared to pay more, I can’t complain. I’ve never had Pad Thai before but now I have - I never want to eat anything else again.
Not even the salted caramel nut cookie sandwich pieces that also fell in to my mouth. Accidentally. (Sorry J. Love you!!)
Long story short… Vegfest rules!!

I’m conducting a small (only 5 questions, promise!) survey about Native Americans and Cultural Appropriation for my final major art project this year. I want to be as respectful as possible and bring to light the subject of inappropriate cultural appropriation as many are ignorant to it, so any help would be greatly received.

Thank you!

Sorry to be a pest but I really need answers for my final major project - even if you only answer one that’s fantastic, I need as much help as possible!
