First of all, I want to thank everyone who shared such kind sentiments on my last post, where I talked about some struggles I’ve been having recently. I’m so blown away by how positive and supportive this online community is…. it really puts a huge smile on my face that people who I’ve never even met can be so kind and understanding and uplifting. It gives me hope for the world, you know? You all are so wonderful!
A few words about today’s recipe – this watermelon aloe juice was inspired by two of the most refreshing things ever – watermelon and aloe juice. Paired together, they make the ultimate refreshing summer drink.
Here’s what caught my eye on the webs this week:
1 // It’s that time of year again – it’s the Saveur 2016 Blog Awards!! If you’ve enjoyed Well and Full over the past year, it would mean everything to me if you could give me a nomination for “Best New Voice”. The nomination process takes less than a minute, and it would mean the world to me!! Be sure to give your other favorite blogs a nomination, too – this is a big deal for us!
2 // I was sent this ceramic vegetable cleaver by Kyocera to review, and I can’t say enough positive things about it. If you’ve never tried ceramic knives before, I would HIGHLY recommend it!! It blows other knives out of the water!
4 // When I was a kid (in my pre-vegetarian days), I used to love jerky. When I went vegetarian, I didn’t really miss it, knowing that it was made from animals, but I kind of missed it. You know the feeling!? But I just discovered this company that makes the most AMAZING vegan jerky. Seriously, stop what you’re doing and try some of this stuff. It’s SO GOOD.
5 // Vegan chai cheesecakes with chocolate drizzle. Drooling.
6 // This cucumber vinaigrette by Jessie of Faring Well sounds seriously good.
7 // I’m not a huge ice cream fan, but this simple 3-ingredient vegan vanilla ice cream looks so creamy and refreshing!
8 // Recipe throwback – Loving my Mango Cheesecake! The perfect dessert to make for 4th of July!
I hope all of you have a safe and happy 4th of July!!
- 3 Cups Cubed Watermelon
- 2 Cups Aloe Vera Juice
- Add watermelon and aloe juice to a blender, and blend until everything is combined.
- When poured, juice may separate, which is natural. It'll still taste amazing!
