The Nutty Parts of 2018.

Hi friends! Can anyone believe it’s almost June!?
I  swear winter in Cleveland was never going to end! Finally the sun is out and warmth is here, and we are moving toward summer with a quick pace! I am ready!

I wanted to take a minute to talk about one of my highlights of 2018, and that was Ajoyo Almondmilk. Partnering with Ajoyo at the beginning of 2018 made sense, they talk about taking a small step toward change, promote a healthy lifestyle, and made it easy to incorporate their almond milks in my diet.


Not only that, but they helped me record TV commercials in NEOhio, get published with Edible Cleveland, allow me to write an E-book of recipes, and also to launch my first cooking demo in Cleveland. These last few months have been a dream come true!

Plus, and this is my favorite, Ajoyo is letting me giveaway a three month supply of their almond milk on my Instagram, plus the chance to win a years worth of almond milk, through their website, here.

If you are local and can catch me at the local farmers market this Saturday, 5/26, at Howe Meadow Farmer’s Market, come say hi! I’ll be making my almond milk ranch for veggie dunks, and my blueberry muffin overnight oats!

If you can’t make it, here is a link to several dairy free recipe’s I’ve created, as well as a few I’m going to share below!
If you’re interested in entering the giveaway for three months of free almondmilk, head on over to my Instagram, @thatswhatsheeats! Thanks friends! Happy that we can make that one small step together. Happy Memorial Day Weekend!
