50 Things to Do When It’s Just Too Dang Cold Outside

The Spokane area has been chilly since late November, and January (unsurprisingly) hasn’t done us any favors either. Compared to the rest of the country, we’re pretty lucky to stay just above freezing most days, but that doesn’t mean we like facing the cold any better. While Spokane has a myriad of amazing outdoor winter activities to offer, that’s not everyone’s ‘cup of tea.’ Some people’s ‘cup of tea’ is an actual cup of tea by a warm fire inside, away from the cold.

Unlike most bread, however, tofu is both a nutrient dense food and an excellent source of protein.

Vegan Ice Cream & BumbleBars

Vegan Ice Cream, BumbleBar, Vegan, Ice Cream

It’s 96 degrees in the beautiful Spokane Valley today ­ and it’s not even summer yet! When it’s this hot, we need a healthy treat that’s going to keep us cool! One of our favorite treats to enjoy is vegan ice cream, sprinkled with BumbleBar crumbles!

We recommend making your own vegan ice cream because it’s actually really fun! (Liz recommends the recipe from her favorite cookbook The New Farm Vegetarian Cookbook.)   However, we understand that sometimes you need a cold snack ASAP. So in that case, we recommend trying Luna & Larry’s Coconut Bliss NonDairy Frozen Dessert. (It’s organic, dairy free, soy free, gluten free and comes in many different flavors. Yum!)

Here are a few of my personal favorite flavor combinations:

We would love to see what other mouthwatering flavor combinations you come up with! #BumbleBarSummer to share your favorite recipes on Facebook, Twitter & Instagram.

Stay Cool!
