Tummy Tonic

Tummy Tonic

As humans, we all have tummy troubles from time to time.  (All you non humans would enjoy this recipe too, but just for yummy reasons, because clearly you are an alien.. I mean, do you even have a stomach?) There are a few foods that can really help when you are having digestive upset: bananas,

Vegan Carrot Cake Salad

Vegan Carrot Cake Salad

I think I can finally convince even non believers that salad for breakfast is where it’s at. I am seriously hooked on this salad.  I am on kind of a raisin kick right now (it took me a while to get over the inner child that cringed at raisin things, even though I do still

Green Orange Juice

Green Orange Juice

I have been getting the most beautiful citrus fruit lately.  And sometimes I love cutting it up and eating it like a salad (grapefruit segments with maple syrup and walnuts is pretty much the best thing that ever happened to grapefruit for breakfast).  And other times I am less motivated and I just want yummy

Strawberry Vegan Green Smoothie

Strawberry Vegan Green Smoothie

A while back the weirdest thing ever happened to me.  I started to love exercise.  I went from the wake-up-as-late-as-I-can-get-away-with (I was serious about getting every last minute of sleep) to getting up early to work out.  Which is seriously something I never ever thought I would do. (Ok, I am still serious about my sleep,

Dark Chocolate Brown Rice Pudding

Dark Chocolate Brown Rice Pudding

So if you are going with the Date Night Salad for Valentine’s Day, you may have saved room for a bit of a more decadent dessert.  It was part of my master plan for your meal (insert evil laugh here). So here it is, a decedent rice pudding but made with some wholesome stuff, so

Vegan Tempeh Scramble

Vegan Tempeh Scramble

I love breakfast.  It’s a meal where I can eat chocolate things, or savory goodies, or throw some healthy things in a blender and have a balanced meal in seconds.  There is totally not another meal that is so flexible. But I think maybe my favorite thing about breakfast is that mornings tend to be

Apple Superfood Oatmeal

Apple Superfood Oatmeal

You know how when you eat something super healthy for breakfast, you feel empowered for the rest of the morning?  When I load up on healthy foods, I feel infused with energy and super powers. It might all be in my head, but even so it is an awesome way to start any day.  It

Immunity Boost Smoothie

Immunity Boost Smoothie

With fall in the air and kids going back to school, it’s starting to be the season for the sniffles.  And while being about being able to call out from work is one of life’s many pleasures, I prefer to save it for the times when I feel like playing hooky (which is good for

Gluten Free Crepes

Gluten Free Crepes

Have you ever figured out a life hack that made you feel like an evil genius?  And then you said it out loud and you realized it’s actually maybe not as cool as you thought it was? That happened to me twice this week.  First, I started using my mouse pad (the rubber side) as

Vegan Peaches and Cream Smoothie

Vegan Peaches and Cream Smoothie

I am jealous of Georgia.  First of all, their weather is amazing.  Then they also have incredible farmers markets that sell anything and everything your heart can desire.  The restaurants are ridiculously good, and they also have a claim to Alton Brown, who I am kind of in love with.  But to top it all

Cherry Almond Smoothie (Vegan)

Cherry Almond Smoothie (Vegan)

Remember that time I ate deep fried oreos? Yeah, that totally happened last weekend.  I was at a friends wedding, and they had deep fried oreos… next to a chocolate fountain.  I think saying the wedding was amazing is unnecessary.  Deep fried oreos and chocolate fountains do all the talking.  But also, after the whole

Strawberry Rhubarb Compote (Vegan)

Strawberry Rhubarb Compote (Vegan)

I see rhubarb as nature’s sour patch kids. Because it has that natural tartness that is so fun and puckery.  I was going to ask if puckery is a word, but that little red line is already screaming at me that it is not.  I am just going to ignore it though! Pare the sour
