Jane Goodall and the chimp

Jane Goodall has done amazing work with chimpanzee and this video is so sweet …

watch carefully the moment of gratitude… how anyone can questions if animals have emotions is beyond me.

“What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.”

vegan flatbread

flat bread is really fun and delicious especially with some homemade hummus … mummmmm



3 cups of flour (you can use spelt, brown rice , or any flour you would like)

1 tablespoon of salt

2 teaspoons of baking powder

3 tablespoons of oil (we use coconut)

1 cup of cold water

we sometimes add chia seeds ( that is what you see in the picture below)


mix all the above together and then roll out and cut into pieces to cook on the stovetop in coconut oil





chia pudding

My husband decided to give this a try … and he was amazed at how easy it was… funny how we hesitate on making stuff at times cause we think it will be hard or take  long to make.

This took 5 minutes to prepare and then placed in the fridge to cool for about 20 or so minutes.


2 cups of coconut milk  (or other vegan milk of choice)

8 tablespoons of chia seeds

1 teaspoon of vanilla

4 tablespoons of cacao

3 tablespoons of maple syrup

mix all the above ingredients together and then refrigerate

to serve you can top with fruits or nuts and maple syrup

(for those with a sweeter tooth , I would suggest adding a little more maple syrup in the ingredients)

and voila!

chia pudding

enjoy 🙂
