Let’s talk about a healthy snack that is blowing my mind recently: CRISPY DRY ROASTED EDAMAME.

Yes, edamame as a snack. Can you get into it?

I know I can. I love edamame in any form – even frozen – and I always sneak a few handfuls when I’m cooking with them. What is it with frozen legumes? I just love them.

Salted Chocolate Almond Mug Cake - Vegan, GF, microwavable, and ready in 60 seconds!

Sometimes I think there are two types of eaters in this world: the plate-lickers and the non-plate-lickers. The plate-lickers get enough pleasure out of each iiiitty bitty morsel of food they can scrape off their plates at the end of a meal to justify the effort; the non-plate-lickers do not. They might even think it’s unsightly to scrape your plate like that.

Hi, my name is Erica and I am a plate-licker.

Layered Asian Salad with Sesame Ginger Dressing

The final wedding countdown is on! 12 days, you guys. TWELVE DAYS.

Nate and I were in Atlanta this weekend at our friends Sara and Anthony’s wedding. Sara and I got engaged right around the same time, and were checking with each other as we planned our weddings to make sure we picked different dates. So all year, I’ve known that we were flying to Atlanta for their wedding, and then ours would be just around the corner. Being there this weekend made our wedding seem SO REAL!

Not to mention the fact that they had the most beautiful wedding ever. It was at her parents’ house (an old horse farm), very Southern rustic, very DIY. It was absolutely perfect, and I can only hope I’ll look half as overjoyed as I walk down the aisle as my lovely friend did! Except I know I’ll look terrified instead. I remember distinctly from my sister’s wedding the feeling of not being able to control my facial muscles as I walked down the aisle because I was so nervous. The chance of that happening at my own wedding is preeeetty much 100%. I will be clinging to my dad for dear life!

I was crossing my fingers that I’d be going through a quiet spell at work in the weeks leading up to the wedding, to give me a little spare time to take care of last-minute wedding details. Instead, pretty much the opposite is true. Isn’t that always the way things work? Everyone is being super understanding, and I’m trying to stay focused and not take advantage too much. Because of that, easy salads like this are going to be our best friends over the next week or so!

Let’s kick it off with my top 5 reasons you should make this smoothie:

5. It’s vegan.

4. It’s silky smooth from the avocado.

3. It’s like horchata, but healthy!

2. “Horchata” is fun to say.

1. And the number one reason you should make this smoothie is… {drum roll please} that you will get it all to yourself because it is green and gloppy but secretly delicious.
