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 week was a fun filled one for sure. We were busy as little bees getting our free 3 step guide to put an end to dieting and develop healthy habits up and running on the site, which you probably saw in our sidebar today. If you haven't, I know you'll go nutty over it and you can check it out below. It's a free three part videos series in which I share a very personal side of my story with eating and dieting with you, and I give you my 3 step guide for creating healthy eating habits for life, plus some very actionable tips and secrets for staying on the healthy and happy train. I'll be writing a separate post on it soon but you can head right on over by clicking below and start watching right now. I'm very nervous about this one since for the first time ever I'm sharing this part of my story on video, but I know it might be so helpful to so many of you, so I just had to rip the fear off like a really sticky band aid and share.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.
The Nomadic Vegan, homemade seitan sausages with carbonara and vegan brezel
It's that time of the week again in which I get to share our favorite vegan eats and treats from the past week, straight from our kitchen table. This week was especially delicious and fun since I got to meet my favorite vegan travel blogger Wendy Werneth from The Nomadic Vegan. We've become friends over the past few years in the blogging world, but we had never actually met! It was so much fun and exciting to get to meet her in person this weekend, as she stopped by for a flash visit from Geneva. Wendy is a truly amazing person and as sweet as she sounds in her blog. She's travelled to over 97 countries, speaks 6 languages and is married to a fellow teacher who also happens to be one of our most recent My Brownble members. He's cooking up a storm with all of our recipes, and Wendy is such a lucky lady having Nick cook for her. You'll see all the photos below and of course more amazing grub from our very own kitchen to yours. Let's do this thing!Read More
Dinner at Rayen Vegano, quick veggie sautés and homemade nut butters
We're entering Valentine's Day week and all I can think about is the video we'll be posting, perfect for this special occasion. According to Carlos it is the best recipe in our blog or membership program to date. Yup! He actually said that! I still think there are many just as good but I am EXTREMELY excited to share this one with you. I'm mentioning it now only because with recipe testing and filming it this week it should be in here with all the other yummies we had, but I don't want to ruin the surprise! You'll just have to wait until Wednesday when we post it on our youtube channel (and members, you'll have another amazing one coming tomorrow as well!). We did however eat many other delicious vegan meals this week, and here are the highlights, in the hopes that they inspire your meals too!Read More
Pancakes, recipe testing, and getting Holiday ready at Brownble a.k.a CHOCOLATE!
You won't believe how crazy things have been around here. We've been filming non-stop (did you see our brand new Christmas intro and decor?!), which also means that between video shoots there's also some final recipe testing going on, not to mention the fact that we've completely revamped the site so you can have the most user friendly experience at Brownble! Now you can see everything that's new right in the home page, we've made our blog our home page since it really is wher you and I get to hang out. We've added a recipe section where both brownble members and people wanting to find out more and cook some of the recipes in our youtube videos can get cooking asap. We've also added a brand new Christmas Recipe section with all our favorite holiday recipes. Keep checking it since we'll be adding much more right up until New Year's! So yes, things have been busy, but not so busy that I can't stop by for our usual Monday date to show you the yummy grub we ate this past week to help inspire some of your meals! We had some yummies...Read More
