Apples & Honey

In the Christian Orthodox Faith we do a lot of Fasting - our Fast is always a strict vegan diet - animal products are not allowed. It is now 6 weeks before Orthodox Christmas (January 7th) and we have begun to Fast. One of the most challenging things about Fast is that you have to get really creative with a limited amount of food ingredients. As of late though so many vegan recipe blogs have come out that the challenge is not as challenging anymore. Although I did find out that vegans don't eat Honey - when we Fast, we count on our Honey... a lot! This year I even started the Fast with some Honey - Honeyed Apple Minis - they are delicious.
