No eggs, dairy, or anything of the flesh. Plant based. Vegan. All words that seem to scare people and are the butt of the thanksgiving jokes. You know your plate is full of veggies, bread, and sweet potatoes if you're vegan around holiday time. You don't get many options.

*cue trumpets playing a heavenly melody*

Bomb af! Inobe Nicole. Not only has a dope ass sense of style, but she also cooks .. amazing vegan dishes! Once Inobe showed me a couple simple vegan recipes, I was sold. (I went vegan for 2 months but then I had a cheese crumble. My new lifestyle disappeared.) I just needed to rethink traditional dishes that normally held meat as the star. My favorite that I can't STOP making?! The tacos! Made with walnut pieces and cashew halves, cumin, salt (to taste), and olive oil. Topped with red onions, tomatoes, avacado, and cilantro wrapped in a lettuce leaf. Everyone I've made this dish for, fell in love! It's a raw dish (no heat necessary) and only requires a food processor. Perfect! Takes 5 minutes to make.

Be sure to pop over to her website for fashion inspiration and her raw vegan taco recipe!

Photo Diary: New Orleans

 

Thick humidity, creaky aged plank wood floors, willow trees, and a small town feel with big taste and character. New Orleans held a mysteriousness about it. Although the purpose of the trip was a refresher, to my creativity & scenery, it was also about learning more about myself and disconnecting. The city didn't have the typical "southern" feel, it felt heavier in culture than any other it's neighboring states. The people I encountered from the airport to the restaurants, were beautiful. There is something about that N'awls sing songy twang that's comforting. Fair warning though, if you came for the food porn, I don't have any.

prior to this trip, I was on an "unofficial" 3 week photography tour. 7 planes, 5 cities ( NY twice ) I was about over flying at this point. I'm actually scared of flying, any small bump or sway out of the norm gets my heart racing and the prayers flowing.
