How is it this time again already? Another week that flew by! I need to slow down time. We have had a super fun and busy week. We had friendsm Sean and Ruth, visiting and staying with us, from the UK. It was their first trip to Southern California so we made sure to give them the best time possible. They are both theme park/Disney junkies, so we of course spent an entire day at Disneyland with them, which you never have to twist our arms to do. We had a BBQ and invited some friends over, grilled out and just relaxed. Since they left on Tuesday we’ve been busy getting caught up on work and getting ready for upcoming events and travel. Mark has a trip next week, I have one the week after, then he goes away again just about a week later. Phew. August is going to fly right by. I am hoping to have time to share a decent amount of recipes, but it could be just a bit quieter around here for that reason.

It isn’t a glamorous photo, but I finally ran out of my store-bought toothpaste and got to make a batch of this homemade toothpaste. I didn’t have aloe so I swapped it out for coconut oil. I am loving it so far, my teeth feel so clean and have gotten noticeably whiter, already.

The Brits arrived at our house on Friday afternoon, since they have been traveling and eating at restaurants like crazy, I made them a delicious veggie-filled frittata for breakfast. Loaded with zucchini, spinach, tomatoes, fresh herbs and onions and I topped it with with a light sprinkle of raw milk parmesan cheese. Check out my similar summer harvest frittata recipe here.

We of course, had to take them to the beach!

We had to take Sean and Ruth to our favorite Tiki Bar. Best place to take out-of-towners, especially British ones.

We made a big BBQ feast for all of our friends on Sunday to celebrate the Brits being here. I wanted to show them some yummy homemade healthy American food, since they’ve been loading up on burgers and chain restaurants. We made a beer-can chicken (organic and pasture-raised), a grilled potato salad with crispy kale (similar salad recipe can be found here), my heirloom tomato and avocado salad, grilled portobello mushrooms and some fun desserts, this vegan chocolate tart with berries, so good! And these chocolate chip cookies (I skipped on the sugar and brown sugar and used coconut sugar, they turned out great).

Raw Vegan Enchiladas from a vendor at our local farmers market. After having guests and eating more sugar and junk than I would prefer to, this was the perfect dinner for me Wednesday night.

  1. Loving the photos!!! It sounds like you showed your friends a pretty amazing time. Those corn dogs are hideously scary, but I am sure that Mark was totally stoked about them.:)

  2. I have been meaning to make homemade toothpaste for some time now and I’ve never seen a recipe for toothpaste made from aloe so I’m intrigued (:

    Do I understand you correctly you did not use the Aloe and used Coconut Oil? The same amount? 2-3 tablespoons?
