Happy Spring! Let’s celebrate the warm sun with a teacup full of sunshine and health! Huzzah! This gazpacho is special ~ it doesn’t use bread to thicken ~ it uses one boiled egg (or more if you want to get your protein on!) It also does not contain cucumber. I wanted to keep the flavor bright, but not too intense. Plus, the Hub hates cucumber … Continue reading Gazpacho for the WIN.
Good morning, lovely people! I think you all know by now that my favorite subject is HEALTHY BREAKFAST FOODS. Although, lately I’ve been partaking a little too much in the coffee shop pastry genre. I can’t say I’m sad about it. For me, if I have a decadent everything bagel with cream cheese or a croissant on Monday morning, I crave it every morning for … Continue reading avocados and fruit for breakfast.
I confess. I’m a self-proclaimed addict of the trendy food-lovers’ salad of today ~ the Buddha Bowl. I could eat one every single day. And it would be really smart for me to do so. It’s full of all the things that really make me feel amazing: fresh, vibrantly-colored vegetables, mostly raw, nuts, seeds, fruits, maybe a little protein or grain added, and a homemade … Continue reading Buddha Bowl Addict.
This is truly a soup for company, y’all. Although, I didn’t know I was going to have company yesterday when I made it. I merely made it because I wanted to get rid of this nasty Seasonal Affective Disorder that’s been lingering for days. But sometimes if you build it, it will come. If you make delicious food, people will come to your house for … Continue reading Curried Carrot Bisque.
WHOLE 30 ROCKS!!! Well, it rocks when you figure out that you need something to look forward to every single day. If it’s food ~ and it can be food that’s on-plan ~ you have a winner! It was Saturday Night and we needed a treat. We didn’t eat past 8PM, we didn’t go out, we watched a dumb movie at home and stayed on … Continue reading Almond Joy Truffles.
HOMEMADE PHO BROTH, PEOPLE. HOMEMADE PHO. If you’ve never had pho before, let me describe it to you. It’s as if the most flavorful broth imaginable, made out with a cinnamon roll. I know that sounds weird! But the warming spices added to this broth make everything better. Here’s how I did it: HOMEMADE VEGAN PHO BROTH Fill a stock pot with 4 cups … Continue reading Homemade PHO broth.
I wasn’t going to post my boring salad dinner tonight, but this dressing was so delicious that I just had to. Okay listen ~ this isn’t the prettiest picture but I wanted to post the evidence of a creamy, delicious, but VEGAN ranch dressing! Here’s the recipe: VEGAN RANCH DRESSING Drop the following in a blender: 1/4 cup coconut yogurt (yogurt made with coconut milk … Continue reading Vegan Ranch Dressing.

yes, folks, this is your basic thanksgiving post. well, maybe not so basic, because i live in a house divided. there’s a vegan in my family, a vegetarian who hates cheese (isn’t that also a vegan), a little girl who hates cheese, another little girl who likes to eat meat right off a bone like no one else does in the family (weird), at least four … Continue reading THANKSGIVING 2018.
