Greek Quinoa Salad (vegan)

Greek Quinoa Salad (vegan)

I don’t really know if avocados are Greek, but since I can’t live without them they end up in a lot of things I make.  If the rumors about ‘you are what you eat’ are true, then I am going to turn into a nutty avocado.  And things are going to get weird. Hubby just

Coffee Banana Soft Serve (vegan)

Coffee Banana Soft Serve (vegan)

One of my favorite little tricks to healthy sweets is banana soft serve.  It turns out that if you put a frozen banana into the food processor, out comes banana soft serve.  No magic wand needed! (Though they never hurt, right?) Hubby sometimes catches me standing in the kitchen with my nose in the can

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 Spring Quinoa

Vegan Spring Quinoa

It’s official.  Even though I am not sure the weather got the memo yet, it’s Spring!!  And it’s the most popular topic of conversation for every person in North America.  The idea of wearing short sleeves has never been more exciting.  (Like, seriously, I can not wait) And I am so excited that I had

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 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

Vegan Irish Skillet

I am convinced cabbage is some kind of miracle food that somehow regenerates when I am not looking.  I feel like I haven’t bought cabbage in weeks, but somehow I still always have a half of a cabbage in my fridge. I really can’t complain since it is so healthy, and also keeps so well.  And

Vegan Sauteed Mushrooms and Scallions

I started feeling like Spring may be actually coming this weekend.  We moved the clocks forward and I am so excited for the extra daylight!! And we even had a couple of sunny days. I was so convinced that it was almost spring time, that I dragged my family over to a park with their

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,

Vegan Mango Cabbage Slaw

Vegan Mango Cabbage Slaw

This recipe is my jam right now.  I must be really looking forward to the weather warming up because raw salads (like this one) and slaws are currently my favorite foods. I am also really obsessed with the savory/sweet combo of adding fruit to savory dishes lately. I was so excited when I cut into
