This week was a big one around here. If you were spending some time on social media on Sunday, you probably already know that your Brownble posts are up on iTunes as a brand new vegan podcast! We're squealing of excitement. This was a natural progression from what we had been doing, which was adding the audio versions of each blog post so you could sit back and relax while you heard me on your headphones, or you could download them and wash dishes, walk the dogs, drive to work. I know what it's like to be so busy that no matter how much you'd like to sit down and read a post you just can't do it!Read More
This morning as I was doing my daily walking meditation with the dogs (with an amazing podcast called the Daily Meditation Podcast), the little intro the episode started with was talking about two great behavioral studies that can teach you a lot of about having your mind in constant overdrive and multitasking like we were back in the 90's.
This is a topic that really gets my attention because you wouldn't believe the hundreds of things I have on my plate every single day. I'm constantly on turbo, then I come crashing down, so I'm always on the hunt for great tools to help me keep things in balance. I know you're not an exception to this either. You're so busy and have so much on your plate that it's hard to be able to enjoy anything sometimes.Read More
A visit from The Nomadic Vegan, lunch at Rayen Vegano and a beautiful spring wedding
Happy Monday everyone! This week was so exciting I can't even tell you. It was also crazy busy which is basically the translation of exciting around here. We had our hands full with recipe testing, editing, adding all the new features to our online program, plus we went to a very special wedding surrounded by friends and the most beautiful spring weather. They had a special vegan menu all set up for us and it was delicious! We were all dolled up as you can see. The bride who worked with Carlos at the hospital was so beautiful and happy, I have to tell you I'm a sucker for a good wedding, especially when it's of friends we care about so much.
That night we came home early and started setting everything up for a very fun Sunday. Wendy Werneth from the amazing vegan travel blog The Nomadic Vegan was going to be on set with us filming a few videos that are coming your way soon! It was the first time we've ever had a guest on set with us and I can't even tell you how much fun that was. You'll get to hear it in one of the videos, since we shot a scene in which everyone suddenly burst out laughing! Including Carlos behind the camera and Wendy's husband Nick who was also with us on set.
