Vegan skin care!

So, David gave me an early birthday present, and it was a great one!
Everyone should check out this website: Moxie Organix.
Moxie Organix offers products that are organic, vegan and chemical free.  They also smell great and are making my skin feel really soft and clean right now!  I got a very cute bag filled with little samples of their products such as natural bar soaps (Romantic Tea and Summer Orange smell amazing), face cleanser, and hydrate formula #2.  The best part was the Vanilla "Lip Cure All" with SPF.  It smells and tastes like candy on your lips.
I suggest reading these two links about the chemicals found in our everyday products:
About Moxie Organix  and My friend Michelle's guide to Green Beauty
I've been trying to be careful with more than just the food I put in my body but also with the products I put on my body.  It's great that there are small companies out there like Moxie Organix that have done their research and are providing us with wonderful, natural products.  I am definitely a fan of theirs.

"Good Friday" Pad Thai

Vegan Pad Thai

Finished product - close up
Thanks to being let out early from work, I had some time to make a nice meal for David and myself.  Above are some pictures of our Pad Thai lunch - the recipe came from my Skinny Bitch in the Kitch cookbook.  I was going to type up the recipe for everyone, but I found it on this website:  (time saver!)
According to the site, the recipe makes 4.5 servings.  I think together we ate about 4 of those servings.  It was really delicious so I'm happy to share the recipe with you. =) Enjoy!
