Grilled Portobello Mushrooms with Vegan Basil and Arugula Pesto

Grilled Portobello Mushrooms with Vegan Basil and Arugula Pesto

I read somewhere recently that 30 minutes of outside time every day can up your happiness.  Which to me translated to: Do everything outside!!! YAY!!!!!!! (Sometimes I think I was a cartoon character in another life) Grilling is a wonderful excuse to be outside.  Along with this little blog here (and some health coaching on

Breakfast Berry Salad (with Cinnamon Oat "Croutons")

Breakfast Berry Salad (with Cinnamon Oat “Croutons”)

While some food trends come and go, I think there are a few that I am likely to stick with.  Like my obsession with kale and green smoothies.  And my love affair with my Vitamix.  (Sometimes I do yoga, remove my makeup with coconut oil, drink my smoothie and think about how I might be

Creamy Mushroom and Arugula Pasta

Creamy Mushroom and Arugula Pasta

I first became a vegetarian when I was about 13.  I grew up going to sleep away camp in New Hampshire every year, and one year I made this friend who everyone thought was the coolest girl ever.  She was a vegetarian, and so from then on I was too.  That pretty much lasted until

Vegan Caprese Salad

Vegan Caprese Salad

I never properly remember the things people say that I think are so hilarious at the time.  But the other day when Hubby came home and saw how many lettuces I had jammed into every available space in the fridge his comment sent me into a fit of laughter.  It’s why I think I am

I really like having  special nights throughout the week.  In fact, I just read an article about how if you spread out the things you love doing throughout the week and not just on the weekends your quality of life improves.  That made so much sense to me, and I am all about doing the

Beet Salad with Cocoa Balsamic Vinaigrette

Beet Salad with Cocoa Balsamic Vinaigrette

It seems to me like you can get good fresh beets almost year-round.  I think they can be planted and grow in a range of conditions, and store really well, so I have been finding good local ones all the time. For me that means I have had a real Ted and Robin like relationship

Vegan Mint, Pea, and Almond Pilaf

Vegan Mint, Pea, and Almond Pilaf

We’re puppy sitting this week, which is pretty much my favorite thing.  I think maybe I am going to steal him, and not give him back. Because he is hilarious, and makes me crack up constantly.  My sister, his actual owner, jokes about how he is a Muppet a lot, which he pretty much is.

Vegan Peanut Sriracha Coleslaw

Vegan Peanut Sriracha Coleslaw

This slaw and I are having a moment.  Creamy, crunchy, spicy, with a little tart.. I’m also having a moment with this combo. I first made this a few weeks back during a time when the cabbage in my fridge was magical and everlasting.  It was kind of out of necessity because I somehow always

Vegan Falafel Salad

Vegan Falafel Salad

I am such a sucker for falafel.  It’s one of my favorite foods (if you are keeping count I have a lot of favorites, clearly I really love food).  Over the weekend we walked passed by a falafel place and then I couldn’t get falafel out of my brain.  Did I mention I love food?

Vegan Asian Soup

Vegan Asian Soup

I suddenly found myself staring down a refrigerator that was so full of produce that I could barely shut it on Saturday morning.  I chose to ignore that and went about my normal routine: a smoothie, and the newest episode of Jamie’s 15 minute meals.  If you have been around the blog for a while

Date Night Kale Salad (vegan)

Date Night Kale Salad (vegan)

With Valentine’s Day coming up this week, I just had to make some kind of dish with dates.  I love puns too much to pass up on this opportunity. A couple of weeks ago I took a work trip to Nashville, where I had a kale salad that I have been completely obsessed with ever

Raw Fennel Salad with Grapefruit (vegan)

I am loving playing with the balancing flavor and texture in food recently.  I listen to this wonderful podcast, and they were discussing how food science develops food that is addictive and hits all the flavors and sensations that we crave.  The thing that I really love about the podcast is that they weren’t talking
