Beans & rice, No Bake Cookies

Hey! I have been unable to post because I've had some health issues arise. I came down with what I think was the flu on Tuesday and became dehydrated because of it. When I went to the doctor yesterday, my blood pressure was so low that they couldn't get a reading on it. They determined it was because of the dehydration and told me I either had to drink a ridiculous amount of gatorade and/or water or they could put me in the hospital with an IV. I chose to go home and try to drink a bunch because I dislike hospitals. I've been constantly drinking water so hopefully I'm on my way to being hydrated =]
I hadn't eaten very much either due to not feeling well but last night I made myself a big bowl of brown rice, black beans, corn, peas, broccoli, carrots, and peppers topped with chipotle Parma. Yum!

I also asked my mom to make me her wonderful vegan no bake cookies. They are delicious! So delicious that I wasn't able to keep them long enough over the weekend to get a picture. Keep them in the fridge so they don't go bad of course. The refrigeration makes them fudgy!
1/2 cup agave
1/2 cup almond or other nondairy milk
1/8 cup vegan butter, melted
2 tbsp cocoa
3 cups rolled oats
3 dates finely chopped
Combine in a bowl and mix well. Drop by spoonful onto baking sheet and chill.

So simple and easy to make!


  1. So sorry you are not feeling well. Drink those fluids and feel better.

  2. Thanks I drank a bunch and am feeling almost back to normal =]
