Halloween is less than a week away! I can’t believe October is almost over. It’s really gone by in the blink of an eye for me. I’ve been keeping so busy I haven’t even had a chance to think about it. I’m in the middle of the hurricane so to speak, but I see the light at the end of the tunnel. Come this weekend, I’ll have time to finally take a breather and hopefully whip up a last minute costume in time to celebrate Halloween. Speaking of, what would Halloween be without candy? So, I’ve rounded up these 5 vegan recipes for yummy, homemade Halloween candy if you’re feeling up for it.
I found this free printable designed by Kristen from Hello Monday Design which perfectly fits my situation right now. I mentioned before that I’ve been keeping really busy with my business, which is why I haven’t been able to post as much as I used to. As stressful as it is and as bad as I feel that I don’t have as much free time to blog, I feel so incredibly lucky that I’m able to pursue my passion and do what I love. It’s definitely a rare thing, which my boyfriend likes to remind me during the tough times. So even when I’m having a bad day or a particularly crazy week (which this week has definitely been), I still look forward to each and every day. And that even includes Monday!
Last week, I escaped to London with my boyfriend. We were there partly for business and partly for pleasure, but it turned into a massive eating frenzy. Since the last time I visited London in February, even more delicious plant-based food had blossomed which I was so happy to see. As a big fan of small, locally-run businesses, it was cool to meet so many young entrepreneurs spreading some really bomb-dot-com vegan food around the city. From Mexican burritos to donuts to sushi to brownies, I really had everything I’ve ever dreamed of. I hope you enjoy this list of the top 5 vegan eats in London that I discovered on my latest trip!
I really feel so bad that I keep having to apologize over and over again, but I’m so sorry. I know I’ve been kind of AWOL here lately and I hope you’ll let me explain. Life has just been so crazy busy, chaotic, and overwhelming lately. I know that’s no excuse, but I’ve barely had time to do anything besides work, eat, and sleep. I had a business catastrophe that I couldn’t fix the week before I left for London, then I was out of town, and now I’ve been playing catch-up with my company doing all the production. I know it doesn’t help that I took a vacation in the midst of the struggle, but I really needed it. It forced me to put my big girl pants on and get sh** done when I got back (for lack of a better way of putting it).

The moment the smell of these soft, freshly baked vegan pumpkin donuts hit my nose, I knew I’d hit the jackpot. Seriously, they turned out so deliciously moist, full of flavor, and perfect for autumn. I am so excited to share this recipe with you, because I used to think making donuts was a near impossible feat. But in the hopes of demystifying the vegan donut, these only required 8 ingredients and a couple of easy-to-follow steps to make. You’ll be on your way to the most scrumptious, vegan & gluten-free pumpkin donuts in no time!
