How to make an easy satisfying healthy meal
Hi guys, I'm here to tell you how to build a satisfying healthy meal in simple steps. When you eat low-fat vegan you don't have to cut back on calories and you should just eat until you are satisfied.
1. Pick 2 or more vegetables (you can use frozen if it's convenient)
2. Pick your starch
I reccomend just putting salt and pepper on your vegetables if your protein is going to be flavorful, or flavor everything the same way. Sometimes mixing flavors doesn't work but just experiment.
Cheap and Easy Fall Inspired Day-cation!
Here I have some fun ideas for just you or you and a friend to do this fall at home! This is a full Daycation (Day-Vacation) that is cheap and easy! Comment and let me know if you do this and what you changed!
Let's have breakfast in bed! Here is an easy vegan recipe for fall
You can serve these delicious pancakes with fruit, coffee, and vegan sausages. Put a nice flower in a small vase on the tray that you surprise your friend with, make yourself a tray as well and sit and eat with him/her. You can also put on some classical music or just watch TV or a movie.
Let's get outside! Here are a few ideas for getting some fresh air.
>Go for a bike ride
>Go for a long walk
>Go find the prettiest leaves, sticks, burrs, and pine cones you can find and make a little ornament for your house.
>Dress up and take some fall pictures.
Let's Go to a Painting class! Normally a painting classes are extremely costly but by doing this method you save tons!
Prep: Get some supplies:
>Paint brushes, or clean sponge pieces.
>Paper or canvases
>Any paint, watercolors can be bought at the dollar-tree, acrylics at Walmart.
>Put on a fall painting tutorial on youtube to follow along.

Let's Go to the Spa! No Day-cation is complete without a nice relaxing spa after a long day of having fun!
>Cut 2 slices of cucumber.
>Mix equal parts sugar and coconut oil to create a sugar scrub
>grab some cinnamon
>brew a small batch of green tea
>Put some water and brown sugar cinnamon bubble bath in the tub

Take a nice relaxing bath, exfoliate your arms and legs with some sugar scrub, sip a drink, and put green tea on your face or any other mask or treatment you like for your skin. If you're not reading sit back with some cucumber on your eyes.

I believe you should wait until after thanksgiving to move on to Christmas but in this case you're probably going to be black Friday shopping so here is a quick gift guide for people who you just have no idea what they want. Note: the preteen and teen will most likely both work for 13 year old boys. These also work for Tomboys.
Little Boy (2-5)
>Hot wheels set
>Candy (if okay with parents)
>Basically any age appropriate toy
>ANYTHING with their favorite character on it, including a toothbrush. (my cousin got a batman toothbrush for Christmas and he was really excited)
>Books with sound (there are some books that will have audio as they turn pages)
Tip: If you want them to love your present don't get them clothes, they would much rather get a toy when they're this young. Also if you give them money or a gift card they won't know what to do with it.
Big Boy (6-10)
>Remote control car
>Scooter, kid car, or bike.
>Hot wheels set
>Interesting Books (varies for the age of the kid and how much they like books)
>Cartoon character wrist watch.
>Fun in the tub set (Box with bath crayons, bath bomb, bubble bath, other soapy fun)
>Art kit. (some kids don't like art you can usually tell if they can or not if you met them)
Tip: If you want them to love your present don't get them clothes, they would much rather get a toy when they're this young.

Preteen boys are very hard to shop for but here are some ideas:

Hello girls and guys today I am going to be showing you some fall room decor I threw together with stuff I already had. I am going to try to do an update of more decor this week.
I made this to co-ordinate with my How to have a party for under $25 post I did a few weeks ago and should be under my How-To & D.i.y filter. Prices are approximate.
Burlap Banner - $1.25
Paper Chain Streamers - 1.00
Photo Booth Props - 5.00 (store's price is $15)
Photo Booth/Selfie Station - 2.00
the one I threw together isn't very pretty but it's just an example. All you do is put up a background of something from the dollar store like a foam board or a table cloth or poster board then you decorate it or ask the guests to sign it (only works with board not tablecloth) and put the props on a small table beside it or in a bucket on the wall like I did here but on a small table is better. you can also buy a empty frame and the people hold it up in front of them when the picture is taken. some people actually make social media cake pops or emoji cookies and put those by the photo booth because of selfies going on Instagram and all. to find out how to make social media cake pops it's by nerdy nummies on YouTube and you'll have to look up emoji cookies I forgot the channel.
Make it Sparkle - 2.00 + stuff you're decorating's prices.
The cost of the party mostly revolves around food and drinks. So if you need to have the cheapest party possible you aren't going to be having fancy drinks. The cheapest thing you can have to drink (that's not water) is lemonade.
To make your lemonade look fancier put it in a punch bowl or a glass mixing bowl with a plastic ladle ($1 at Dollar Tree) your lemonade cost should be around $5 for the lemons and sugar. to make it look decent put lemon slices floating in it and if you want put some strawberry slices or some food coloring in it.
As for actual food you can throw a potluck by asking each guest to bring a covered dish and you only have to serve the drinks and some small snacks like chips and salsa and crackers with cheese and lunch meat rolled up (around $10)
For serving the food you will need disposable napkins, cups, and plates (around $5)
Now you need is decorations! Grab 3 balloons from the Dollar Tree ($3 +tax) you can make free decorations if you already have art supplies, or you can ask an artsy friend to make you some decorations. (I will post how to make party decorations soon)
Finally you just need to play music from your computer or have musician friends play at your party.
As for invitations just invite people in person, by phone, or on social media.
