Thai Tea for Two

Enjoy some homemade Thai Tea for Two that's free of refined sugar and artificial coloring with a dairy free and vegan option. | www.vibrantlifearmywife.com

This recipe has been in the works for several weeks. Several sticky, tapioca flour everywhere, filled weeks.  After a few mishaps, messes and tapioca all over our kitchens, all over us and all over the dogs (yes that happened!), it is here to share with the world.  Maybe not the whole world because not that many people read our posts, but they should, obviously.  Tell your friends!

“You know what ELSE everybody likes? Parfaits! Have you ever met a person, you say, “Let’s get some parfait,” they say, “Hell no, I don’t like no parfait.”? Parfaits are delicious!” Name that movie….. I cannot hear the word parfait without thinking of the movie Shrek and being transported straight back to my childhood. I used to watch that movie all the time. I could probably still quote it to this day. It’s the best. Continue reading

How to have the best weekend in Portland ever

How to have the best weekend in Portland ever | www.vibrantlifearmywife.com

If you follow me on social media at all, you’ll know that I spent an extended weekend a couple weeks ago in Portland, Oregon. I went there to attend the Nutritional Therapy Association’s annual conference in order to learn some good educational nuggets that I could then share with you, my lovely readers. And while the conference was great and I learned a lot, especially about the business side of things which Lord knows I need, my favorite part of the weekend was getting to spend time with some amazing friends and eat incredible food.
