It’s Memorial Day weekend! Which means most of my family and friends back in the US are gearing up for a nice, long 3 day weekend full of relaxing by the pool, getting together for BBQs, and soaking up the sun. I’ve rounded up these 10 vegan Memorial Day recipes, which include everything from vegan cheese dip to peanut butter cup freezer fudge to chocolate popsicles. It’s so easy to eat plant-based, whole foods during Memorial Day with no stress!

After over a week of cloudy, rainy & overcast weather, the sun is finally out in full force. I’m super excited, because it really gets me in the mood for going to the market, spending time at the beach, and heading to Disneyland. I’m going to try to squeeze in as much time outside as I can this weekend!
I hope you all have a safe and fun Memorial Day weekend. We actually have a holiday here on Tuesday for the Dragon Boat Festival. Unfortunately, that means we do have to go to work on Monday, but we’re planning to head to the races at Stanley Market on Tuesday. It’ll be really nice to have a little midweek break. We haven’t been in a couple of years, so I can’t wait!
