Healthy Vegan Friday #54 3 Ways with kale, 7 Pie inspired smoothies & Banana Pops

Do you have a dream?  I have lots of dreams and things that I want for myself and my family.  Sometimes I work far too hard trying to make them happen.  I burn out sometimes trying to achieve my dreams but I still wake up the next morning motivated to change for the better.  When you’re going through a hard time I think it’s important to have a dream, something to work towards and keep you going.  I loved this video that I watched this week about how to make your dreams come true!

Healthy Vegan Fridays is a weekly blog hop hosted by myself, Carrie @ Carrie on Vegan, and Gabby @ The Veggie Nook.  It is a place to share your healthy vegan recipes and plant based articles.  The recipes should make use of whole ingredients and minimize the use of processed and refined foods.

  1. Thanks so much for hosting! I’ve linked back to you in my post. :)

  2. Many thanks for the feature!! Have a great weekend.


  3. I wanted the video! What a great story. I wrote part of it down so I could tell my kiddos. I do a lot of story telling when we travel when the kiddos are getting restless. I think this is a great one…plus the wonderful message of hard work and value! What a great guy. Good for him. I will also reiterate this story in my therapy groups as well. Thanks for sharing.
