    That vegan feta! So good :) Loving all the flavors and colors going on in this summer salad, Laura! Wishing you both more moments of ease and brightness! xoReplyCancel

  • Sarah | Well and Full30/06/2016 - 9:26 am

    I’m glad you decided to get some things off your plate and simplify a little!! Sometimes I definitely feel that “I need to do everything at once” feeling and it’s easy to pile on a bunch of projects that can get overwhelming in a hurry. This post is the encouragement I need to give myself a little break :)ReplyCancel

  • Annie30/06/2016 - 9:37 am

    This is so great! Feta has been a strangely big craving of mine since going vegan (never really loved it before though…go figure). Thanks for sharing, cannot wait to try this out!
    xx Annie

  • Alexandra30/06/2016 - 10:18 am

    Charred corn is THE best! It’s such a great summer flavor. As always, these photos are on point :)

    Hope you’re feeling less stressed soon!ReplyCancel

    Wow, this is so incredibly gorgeous. I’m totally new to the concept of the vegan feta and it’s intriguing me! :)ReplyCancel

  • Sherrie30/06/2016 - 3:29 pm

    I’m really going crazy over this vegan feta Laura! And all of this beauty in a bowl too. I hope more breath and lightness enters your life all summer long. All the love, xx!ReplyCancel

  • Jessie Snyder30/06/2016 - 7:09 pm

    This is summer, Laura, you nailed it! Absolutely stunning, and with blueberries and corn together – I think you are onto something! I need to take a crack at this almond feta, I loved your snap about it ;) “its salty” – PERFECT. And a big ole fist pump for cutting things out of life that keep you from sparkling. Life is too fleeting to not. Hope you two have a chill week + weekend, girl. Hugs!ReplyCancel

  • TUULIA01/07/2016 - 5:31 am

    High fives for less stress and more chill time, I plan on giving myself more time off too. It’s so easy to get overwhelmed when your work is also a lifestyle / hobby, but taking some time off and creating boundaries make some magic too :) And yes, that feta sounds amazing! As does the salad, I love berries in a salad in the summertime. xo!ReplyCancel

  • Dana04/07/2016 - 2:51 am

    Beautiful recipe! The vegan feta was delicious, but came out more like a smooth cream cheese for me than a crumbly feta. Could it be a matter of cooking it longer or at a higher temp? Any other suggestions?ReplyCancel

    • Laura04/07/2016 - 7:35 am

      Hi Dana,
      It is naturally more on the creamy side–sorta like soft goat cheese. I think if you wanted to try and get it more crumbly, longer baking and chilling time might be necessary. Or even some sort of overnight strain with multiple layers of cheese cloth could help.

      • Dana06/07/2016 - 10:08 am

        Thanks! I’ll give that a try sometime. Meanwhile this weekend I’m going to make the cheese again (creamy style) — bake a cornmeal tart, add the cheese as the first layer, top that with homemade basil pesto, and top that with marinated tomatoes. Can’t wait!ReplyCancel

  • Dana22/08/2016 - 7:39 pm

    I can’t tell you how many times I’ve turned to this recipe this summer! I’ve made the almond cheese at least a half dozen times, and have started experimenting: I’ve started to add a clove of garlic and 1/4 nutritional yeast (in which case I cut down the amount of salt), and this past time I subbed 1/2 of the almonds for a half cup of white kidney beans. So good!! I like it on everything :) I’ve made the salad itself a couple of times and both times instead of rice I made finely chopped, pan toasted tempeh for extra protein. Love this recipe and your site!ReplyCancel

wild ginger green smoothie - The First Messpin it!
This is my new favourite green smoothie! If you’re a true-blue, high vibe nerd, maybe you go in phases with your green drinks too? Sometimes I like a more indulgent, mint chip sorta feel, while other times I’m happy to just have a little bit of fruit whizzed up with coconut water and a handful of whatever greens we have on hand. I usually keep the kale for salads, but I kinda like it combined with ginger in this vibrant sip. Plus the colour of it is literally glowing with goodness. I only happened on this combination because I made a porridge that was seriously inedible the other morning (that’s saying a lot for me), and then blended this up in a state of hangry-ness.

    That article about quitting your job and pursuing your passion is great. When I first read the title I was kind of skeptical, but the article really put things in a new perspective for me. You DO have to have incredible privilege to just go off and purse your passion instead of sticking with a safer, full-time job that may not be as meaningful. I never really thought of it that way though. So I’m really glad you linked to this article today.ReplyCancel

  • Christine22/06/2016 - 7:51 am

    Even though I love baking and coming up with gluten/sugar/dairy/etc etc etc desserts, little bites like these are the most frequent sweet around my place too. My go-to is pretty similar except I always add lucuma, it adds a caramelly vibe to chocolately fudgey bites and is so delicious. Hooray for simple but amazing treats!ReplyCancel

  • Rosie22/06/2016 - 9:40 am

    These look and sound delicious! I am always looking for new uses for my mesquite powder because I cannot get enough of that caramel taste. Sadly though I malabsorb fructose and so cannot eat dates (or most other dried fruits)… are there any suitable substitutes you can think of? Would love to hear your advice :)ReplyCancel

    • Laura22/06/2016 - 12:03 pm

      Hi Rosie,
      I think you might be able to get away with some cooked sweet potato or pumpkin in place of the dates. It will make for a wetter batter though, so I’d start with a 1/2 cup of either one and work up if necessary.

  • Allyson22/06/2016 - 10:06 am

  • Cassie24/06/2016 - 10:49 am

    I love these kinds of desserts! Sometimes, I add some almond butter or peanut butter into the date dough, which make it very difficult to roll everything into balls before eating them all! Sometimes I stock my fridge with tons of fruit, but as quickly as we can get it stocked up, we finish all the fruit too!ReplyCancel

      Since all of the veggies are pretty hardy, I think you could get away with holding it in the fridge for up to 2-3 days for sure. It might not be as crisp, but still pretty good!

  • Sarah B16/06/2016 - 7:39 pm

      Hi Sarah! I kind of mixed it up with the tools. Here’s a breakdown below. -L

I’ve been making a lot of versions of Ottolenghi’s “Fancy coleslaw” which I love, and this is similar, but with a different, zingy twist. Looking forward to chopping and eating.

strawberry rosewater chia fresca - The First Messpin it!strawberry rosewater chia fresca - The First Messpin it!
Do chia drinks freak you out? I kind of gravitate to the juices and other drinks with all the little floaties in them. I’m all about that hydration any way I can get it. My man is the opposite. One time on a little day trip in the Boston area, we stopped at a Whole Foods for a quick lunch and my chia kombucha just exploded out of the bottle and he had to actually look away because he was so grossed out. Anyway, I got to drink about half of that kombucha, and the salad that I made that day was memorably choice. View full post »
