Congratulations to my DOLE Salad Circle Party giveaway winner, Vanessa G!
” My favorite salad ingredient is juicy, red tomatoes. I told my teacher friends I work with about the giveaway. I hope that counts as points! You know how teachers love free stuff! Haha. I’d love to win so we can have a salad party. ”
Holy guacamole, yesterday was absolutely crazy! As you may know, I launched my official online store with my signature “EAT MORE RABBIT FOOD” shirts! In under 30 minutes I was sold out of all size large and extra larges! WOW, seriously made me blush! I received tons of emails asking for shirts, but I never could’ve imagined them selling this fast! Your support is truly amazing! It’s just me, myself, and I running my blog, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, Email, and now my store, so I really appreciate your patience and support! In a few short hours I had a triple digit number of orders that I am now organizing and shipping to their recipients. I am sooo excited for you guys to get your shirts! Because of the super quick sales, the online shop is down for some maintenance and updating, but it should be back shortly, since I still have some shirts available for purchase.
This whole online store thing is brand new to me and I am quickly learning so much. For example, I need to find shirts that are available in more sizes! I have been getting quite a few comments and messages about shirts not being available in larger sizes, and this is a great suggestion for my next batch of shirts! Since the first day that I launched my blog, I have been receiving inquiries about the “EAT MORE RABBIT FOOD” shirt that I am wearing in my main photos. By popular demand, I did everything that I could to get the exact same heather green American Apparel racerback to sell on my site. Unfortunately American Apparel only offers a small variety of shirts in this color, which left me with my favorite racerback in sizes XS-L and a women’s T-shirt from S-XL, so I made sure to order every size available!
I in no way shape or form intended to exclude anyone from being able to buy a certain sized shirt. I have been the girl who didn’t fit clothes at a “regular” store before and I know how it feels to leave empty handed and never wanted that to happen on my own website. I’m still getting the hang of things and learning what everyone wants to see on RFFMBT! This was only the first round of RFFMBT shirts and I’m positive that there will be many more to come.That being said, I would love YOUR input on what YOU would like to see in the next round of shirts/merch! I have had all different types of suggestions from gym bags, to socks, and some different clothing brand options! One reader suggested that I look into Just My Size by Hanes for a variety of sizes and comfy basics to print on!
What would you like to see in the RFFMBT Store? New styles, brands, sizes, colors, designs?
I can’t wait to hear your ideas!
Since I announced my DOLE Salad Circle Party Giveaway winner today, I thought that it was appropriate to give you guys a salad dressing recipe! Today’s super simple recipe comes from none other than Chef AJ. She has created a sweet and tangy, fat-free, plant based salad dressing that takes only 5 ingredients to make! What a woman! This is a fabulous addition to salads that already contain your recommended serving of plant based fat. Say your salad already includes nuts or avocado… just drizzle one tablespoon of naturally fat-free Take 5 Salad Dressing for great flavor and balance. This can also be used as a dip for veggies i.e. sliced bell pepper, carrots, and broccoli!
Take 5 Salad Dressing
Makes nine 1 Tbsp servings
2 Tbsp water
2 Tbsp lemon juice
2 Tbsp low-sodium miso paste (I use Kyoto White Low-Sodium Miso Paste)
2 Tbsp date syrup or maple syrup
1 Tbsp dijon (preferably low-sodium)
Combine all ingredients in a small jar or container with lid and shake shake shake, shake shake shake, shake your dressing. shake your dressinggggg!
Note: If you have never purchased miso paste before, it can usually be found in the refrigerated soy/dairy/yogurt section of most grocery stores. I buy mine at whole foods.
Have a fabulous weekend! xo
