Are you craving popcorn?
I am and I blame it on autumn.
For me autumn is a season associated with comfort and coziness. It's the time for warm sweaters, cozy blankets, and gathering around the fireplace. I want to watch my favourite old movies and drink hot coco and snack. Popcorn fits perfectly into this scenario as a light, easy-to-make, and warm snack. It also adds to the overall feeling of comfort and home. Its crunchiness and warm buttery aroma make it an ideal treat during those chilly evenings or any time.
Carmel popcorn seems to be an even better treat. But OMG the amount of sugar is so dang awful. But what if we could cut the refined sugar and take it up a notch and turn it into a vegan treat? Plus add maple AND cinnamon for a super cozy Autumn vibe?
Are you ready to try this amazing popcorn??
Vegan Maple Cinnamon Popcorn:
- 1/2 cup popcorn kernels
- 2 tbsp coconut oil
- 2 tbsp maple syrup
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- A pinch of salt
1. Pop the popcorn kernels using your preferred method (air popper or stovetop).
2. In a small saucepan, melt the coconut oil and maple syrup over low heat.
3. Stir in the cinnamon and a pinch of salt.
4. Drizzle the maple-cinnamon mixture over the popped popcorn and toss to coat evenly.
This vegan snack recipe are perfect for satisfying your cravings during the autumn season. Enjoy these tasty treats without refined sugar!
Have you ever had trouble finding the perfect dairy alternative for your coffee or tea? I know I have! For the longest time, I was convinced that oat milk just wasn't for me. But recently, I discovered a game-changing oat milk that I can't get enough of!
As a coffee creamer, I much preferred cashew milk over oat milk. But then I tried Califia Farms' extra creamy oat milk at a friend's house and I was blown away! It was smooth, creamy, and added the perfect touch to my tea. I had to admit, I was wrong about oat milk all along!
Now I'm hooked on this extra creamy oat milk and I buy it weekly. It's a great option for those looking for a healthy dairy alternative that still provides the creaminess and richness of traditional milk. Plus, it's packed with essential nutrients like calcium and vitamin D.
I was going to call this post "My Oatmilk Journey," but that seemed a bit dramatic. Still, I wanted to share my newfound love for this delicious oat milk with you. Trust me, if you're looking for a creamy and delicious dairy alternative, this one is definitely worth trying.
So go ahead, give Califia Farms' extra creamy oat milk a try and let me know what you think!
Have a great day!

How are things?
I'm busy doing the pre-packing and gathering up for the upcoming trips. This isn't exactly my favorite part of the travel experience, but it's probably the most necessary.
My itinerary is not set yet but I have a good outline of where, what and when. I'm still researching (I will share some of my findings soon) and gathering items for the trip. I know I will be at the beach, then off to Austin, Texas for work (yeah) and then on to Florida for a much needed Vacation (with a capital V).
So I'm thinking casual summer stuff --- plus work stuff, plus filming equipment for the Youtube channel, plus where I want to eat, who I want to visit and what I want to experience.
Disney? Naw. Been there, done that with the kids. I would rather go to a nature reserve that supports wildlife.
That's the fun part of the pre-trip part, researching what to see. The not so exciting part is the "gathering stage" of gathering that special vegan shampoo, toothpaste, plane snacks, etc. Plus knowing I'm going from one place to the next without a trip home makes the need to "gather" extra vitamins, toiletries, favorite snacks, etc. necessary. I've ordered extra vitamins and supplements already.
Pictured "my can't be without supplements" you can find them via the link:
Dream Sleep https://amzn.to/41NZbym
Vegan Collagen https://amzn.to/3ISUnza
Ashwagandha https://amzn.to/3J0F4o7 (Amazon informed me I have bought 22 times! This is my favorite brand hands down.) I also picked up another set of iPods.
So who else overpaid for their AirPods and then lost one? #Yikes I'm glad I found these on sale. https://amzn.to/3Jqf1s3
I have more to do, but I'm chipping away on my list day-by-day. It's been my experience the more prepared you are for your trips the more fun you have. I mean we can't prepare for every thing, but we can insure we don't run out of supplements and spend quality vacation time hunting them down. This is especially true when you are in a different country. I want to have fun and relax, not stress over vitamins, lol
Speaking of stress-free...I'm gather a list of Vegan places to try in London and will soon be sharing my findings here. So be sure and check back in so you don't miss any new posts. You can also sign up for the mailing list here:

I'm not sure how it's even possible, but this blog is 10 years old today. WTF?? How is that even possible?? It seems like only last year I took the plunge and leaped out there and bought this domain.
Looking back, I've blogged about my adventures traveling in the USA, Europe, Iceland, Canada, Mexico and South America. I've written about trips planned, delayed and failed, as well as amazing adventures that were life changing. I've shared my cruises to the Caribbean, Europe and the Transatlantic journeys. I documented my switch from Vegetarian to Vegan, shared recipes, created book reviews and wrote about my day to day life. I've moved from Texas to the south of France, London, the Lake District and back to the USA and you have been with me.
This blog has opened so many doors for me. I have written several best selling books that wouldn't have happened if I wasn't pushing myself to write here. It's also helped me to try new things, and be open to new experiences. I've gotten serious about Youtube and started sharing way more of everyday life. My world has grown as I've meet new people from all walks of life and become much more of a global citizen.
Thank you so much for reading my posts, sharing your own stories and connecting with me. Your feedback, suggestions and insights have helped me so much. Your friendships mean the world to me and I treasure you.
In the next part of this 10 year celebration I'm going to share some stats with you and take a trip down memory lane. (Reading the old posts used to make me cringe now I am just nostalgic!)
I can't wait to see what the next 10 years bring!
I hope your doing well and enjoying autumn?
I'm traveling today. (Oh how good it feels to be able to write that again!) The weather turned off colder so I went south (again) this time to a new spot...
If you missed it, I took a nice 10 day trip last month and uploaded several videos of our stay here and here plus lots of short! So if you don't follow my Youtube channel head over here. We stayed in a lovely holiday cottage and had a very nice time. I'm also working on uploading all the food /recipes from that stay --so stay tuned for those.
I promise to write more once we are settled in.
Have a great weekend!
