  • When the yeast is active, add in the salt and oil and mix.
  • Now add a cup of flour to your bowl and mix well. Add the remaining flour, half a cup at a time, mixing until a dough forms.
  • Take the dough out of your bowl and kneed on a floured surface for 5-7 min. (or you can skip this step and add everything to your stand mixer)
  • Place the dough in a clean and oiled bowl. Turn the dough over and coat the other side in oil.

Why I’ve been MIA? well, here is why!

For the past couple of day I’ve been in an adjustment phase due a to huge decision I’ve taken that will change my life for ever and is that… I’ve gone VEGAN you guys!

Let me tell you a little bit more of how that came to be. When June started, it became a really slow month of work at the place where I worked leaving me with a lot of time to watch YouTube and read a ton. so a as days went by and I watched videos, in my YouTube feed started appearing a ton of “what I eat in a day” videos and videos with the term “Vegan” in them. At first I paid no attention to the ones tittles vegan in them because I honestly wasn’t interested and watched the “WIEID” videos until one day I came across a video from JessBeautician (she is amazing and so sweet) and loved how lovely her meals were and they were all VEGAN! so I was like OK, this is kind of a sign… let me look into this thing! and started digging up on YouTube to see if someone was well informed to absorb all that knowledge and see what all that was all about!

In my search I came across a video from Carly Byble saying she has gone vegan, the reasons and thanking YouTubers Natasha and Luca “That Vegan Couple” for her conversion from vegetarian to full on vegan. As it was to be expected, I searched for their channel and was hocked! Everything they said was fed to you in such a kind and “I want to teach you” kind of way and I loved that! So I watched most of their videos and when I came across a video response they made directed to a misinformed girl that has P.C.O.S and claimed veganism made it worse, I felt like that video was specially made since I have that condition and have struggling for years with it, and that’s when it REALLY HIT! I thoroughly looked into the vegan lifestyle and saw the “Best Speech You Will Ever Hear – Gary Yourofsky” and it sealed the deal for me! It is a very graphic and very strong speech but it is filled with truth and facts about how it all works now, and how it is supposed to be working!

I am still in the Learning/Transitioning phase and will take time to learn all about it but I am 100% committed to it, I’ve cut out meat, dairy and eggs and it has been a great decision.

Hope this wasn’t too overwhelming for you guys but I felt like I had to share this with you. thank you so much for reading!

Love,
