In my most recent blog post, My Unexpected Diagnosis, I wrote about how I received the shock of my life last February when I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Since it was posted, the outpouring of support I've received has been phenomenal. (I'm still working my way through emails, and if I haven't responded to yours yet, I apologize.) People sent me their prayers and their stories, and the most important thing I learned is that I am not alone.

Thank you to all who sent your well wishes and shared your stories. If you haven't had a chance to read the post yet, you can do that here.

While I took some time off for a quick family trip last week, the rest of the FatFree Vegan gang continued to share some great recipes. Maria, on her blog Plant-Based Slow Motion Miracle, posted a recipe for Easy Vegan Skillet Chili as well as something that I can't wait to try, Soy-Free Burmese Tofu made of chickpea flour.

On the FFV website, Kathy Hester shared the recipe for Oat-chata from her new book, OATrageous Oatmeals. It's a delicious take-off on the traditional Mexican beverage horchata, with some oaty goodness added.
