Hello beautiful humans! My name is Dallas, and I am the content creator here at The Delicious Manifest. I serve up vegan recipes and manifestation tools, aimed at helping you raise your vibration so you can lead the most delicious life – in every sense of the word.
I will share a couple recipes each week, as well as a few manifests per month, and the occasional affirmation.
My recipes will bounce all over, from quick snack ideas and slurpable sauces, to mouth-watering desserts and soul-satisfying entrees. They will always be 100% vegan, and most will be gluten-free as well.
The manifests break down the Law of Attraction principles using everyday scenarios, and contain reflective segments designed to marinate in your mind and soul. Many also include exercises for practicing the principles in your daily life.
The affirmations help you get the wheels turning in categories such as: love, happiness, health, and wealth. They are designed to be read to yourself, out loud or in your head, as many times as possible throughout the day. I encourage you to print and post them everywhere you spend time – around the house, at work, in your car, and in your wallet. The more you read them, the more you will believe in the incredibly positive power they carry, and thus the higher your vibration will become.
Why A Vegan Food Blog?
It is my intention to help others manifest the lives of their dreams. I know that that comes down to raising vibrations, pure and simple.
In regards to the human body, high vibrations or frequencies are synonymous with positivity, happiness, and health, while low vibrations or frequencies invite negativity, depression, and sickness. When it comes to food, organic, plant-based options carry the highest frequencies possible.
Most of us eat between 2-6 times per day. That means we have a handful of opportunities every day to either lower or raise our vibration, simply by opening our mouths.
A Shoulder To Lean On
I know there are so many people out there who want to convert to a vegan diet for many reasons- their health, the environment, and the animals, but they are intimidated by the thought of overhauling their entire way of life all at once. I am here to tell you it doesn’t have to happen overnight. In fact, if you want it to last, it probably shouldn’t. You wouldn’t expect yourself to learn a whole new language overnight, so why would you put the pressure on yourself to change your way of eating just as fast? We set ourselves up for failure when we have unrealistic expectations. I want to help make things as easy and realistic as possible. I will offer tips on how to incorporate one small change at a time into your diet, until it becomes habit and you don’t even have to think about it.
For most people, time and energy, especially at the end of a work day, are scarce. That is when it is easiest to slip into old, comfortable habits. Because of this, many of my recipes are made in big batches that can be divvied up and stored in the fridge or freezer for easy future meals.
Hanger is real. There is no doubt about that! That is why many of my recipes can also become part of an awesome weekly food-prep routine. If you always have healthy, delicious snack options at home and packed when you’re on the go, you will be far less tempted by that drive-thru window or the birthday cake on the staff table.
If you are ready to experience higher states of happiness, health, and compassion, I am here to tell you it is absolutely, 104% possible to convert to a lasting vegan diet. Not only will you survive, but you will totally thrive! You will have to put in effort, just like anything else worth doing in life, but the rewards are indescribable. After transitioning to a plant-based lifestyle, I am happier and healthier than ever before. My stores of energy are endless, my mood is balanced, and my ability to focus is through the roof. (I will note, because I live in a valley where access to organic, farm fresh, truly free-range eggs is abundant, I currently still consume the odd egg when I am at home. However, I understand that most people do not have access to such high quality, happy eggs, which is why I have chosen to omit any recipes containing them.)
If through these recipes I am able to help even one person raise their vibration and change their life for the better, then The Delicious Manifest has served its purpose.
What Does It Mean To “Manifest”, And What Does It Have To Do With Vibration?
To manifest means to draw something into your reality by focusing your energy and attention on it. When we think about something, and then later it appears before our eyes, we have manifested that thing into our experience. Our thoughts carry measurable energy. In other words – thoughts are actually physical things. We send out a vibration with our thoughts all the time, whether we are aware of it or not.
The Law of Attraction, which is perhaps the most important, most miraculous governing law of our Universe, is always active. It works like a magnet, drawing like energies together. If the vibration we give off with our thoughts is low, we will attract less than desirable circumstances into our lives. However, if our vibration is high, we will attract positive things, people, and experiences. Thus, the key to leading a happy, fulfilling life is simple: avoid that which lowers your vibration, and do that which raises it.
When the object of your desire promotes the sustainability and well-being of this planet and all of its creatures, the whole Universe conspires to bring it to you.
How I Came To Know About Universal Law
My quest for a deeper meaning in life began at a very young age. I remember asking the “Big Questions” and challenging the status quo from the time I was a kid. It wasn’t until high school though, when I began to experiment with psychedelics, that I really started to see why we are here.
It is my belief that one day we will live in a world where micro-dosing on psilocybin mushrooms will be as socially accepted as having a cup of coffee. I know that there are still a lot of negative perceptions around psychedelics and their uses, and that is okay. The scientific research into the health and medical benefits of certain psychedelics is beginning to squander the government’s ploy to write them off as harmful and dangerous drugs. We have a long way to go, but I am confident that one day we will recognize them for the truly amazing, mind-opening, self-actualizing substances that they are. For now, I will simply state that I would not be where I am today without the role of psychedelics in my life. They have opened doorways and transported me to dimensions I never knew existed- ones which I cannot even begin to describe in words. Psychedelics have allowed me to see that everything in The Universe breaks down to pure vibrations.
At our core, we are just masses of energy, vibrating at certain frequencies. Our thoughts, which carry measurable energy, shape our world. We literally have the power to create the most extraordinary lives we can fathom, simply by daydreaming and fantasizing! When this knowledge first sank in, it was life-changing for me. There were so many times when my hairs stood up on end when I reflected on just how much power I had to create whatever life I chose.
Everyone Trips At Some Point
Somewhere along the way though, I slipped. I forgot that the power to change my life resides solely with me. Early in 2017, I got to a point where I felt like I was living someone else’s life. It did not feel authentic, and I was not happy. I had succumbed to the daily grind, and was paralyzed by the fear of making a fresh start. I realized that so many of the decisions I had made in the past had been automatic, unconscious responses to my environment, which led to my current unhappiness. I knew that I could not continue down that path.
A New Dawn
I hit the reset button on life. I left a relationship of five years, sold my house, and quit my job- all in the span of a month. I reconnected with the Spiritual path, The Law of Attraction, and my Intuition. Its voice became louder and stronger, and each time it sent me a message, I listened. I have spent so much time asking myself what I TRULY want in life. Now, here I am…
I went from being in an unbalanced relationship that drained my energy, to feeling incredibly happy and confident once again as an autonomous human. Months later, I attracted (to my total surprise) an amazing partner. He is one of the kindest, most helpful, honest, loving, and affectionate souls I have ever met, and I am unbelievably blessed to have him in my life.
I went from being controlled and limited by my finances, to having more than enough to do whatever I want, whenever I want.
I went from spending a lot of lonely time at home, to having an amazing group of inspiring, generous friends to create memories with.
I started adventuring more, cooking new and exciting dishes, dancing to new music, trying different hobbies, reading more books, hanging with my incredible family, and listening – listening to my Intuition in every moment.
I stand here today, with no room left in my being for anything other than extremely positive, high-vibrational energy. It feels SO amazing to know that I am living a life completely of my own design, and I want to share that feeling with ALL OF YOU!
Sharing Is Caring
It is our Absolute Right as Spiritual Beings to experience ecstatic bliss in this incarnation. It is what we came here to do. It is why there are mountains and rivers and lakes and peach trees and snowflakes. They are all a part of nature’s playground, which we have come forth to frolic in, joyously.
If you have read up to this point, I want to thank you so much for your support. It means absolutely everything to me. This is an incredibly exciting journey, and I am so grateful to be embarking on it with the purpose of serving you all.
We are all at the proverbial dinner table together. So, my friends, I raise a glass to you. Cheers, and let’s dig in!
Endless gratitude, smiles, and squish hugs,

All the photos on this page were taken outside my home in Linden Gardens, BC, and many of which were shot by my wonderful sister, Cori-Lynn. Thank you sissy! I love you so much!!
Lastly, a massive thank you to my inspiring aunt and uncle, Margaret and Ken, without whom there would be no Linden Gardens. They are the hardest working people I know, with some of the biggest dreams. And we all know what happens when you combine hard work and big dreams. Mmmmiracles.
When I was a kid they started planting on the family acreage. They converted nine acres of orchard into a fairy land full of stunning perennials, blossoming trees, ponds filled with lily pads and gold fish, lush lawns lined with vibrant annuals, a meandering creek, and bridges and pathways to traverse it all. Today, Linden is one of the most beautiful landmarks in our entire valley.
And me? I actually get to LIVE in a cozy little cabin, right in the heart of it all. I step outside my front door only to see baby ducklings napping on lily pads, blue herons tiptoeing around the pond’s edge, and the most beautiful flowers I have ever laid eyes on. At night the garden comes alive with the sound of thousands of frogs croaking in unison, and there are constantly more squirrels, birds, butterflies, and bees taking up residence in this paradise.
I cannot express enough gratitude towards my aunt and uncle for the magic they have created here. If you are ever in the Okanagan Valley, you should definitely come visit us at Linden Gardens.
