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

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

Avocado Mayo (Vegan Mayo!)

Avocado Mayo (Vegan Mayo!)

Avocados are, in my opinion, one of the most perfect foods ever.  And I have been making this mayo alternative with them for years, I am pretty obsessed with it. Actually, once I decided to actually write down and share the recipe, I did a side by side comparison of this to “regular” mayo.  It

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)

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

Eggnog Chia Pudding (vegan)

I wish the holidays would last forever and that Christmas was several times per year. I know that might make it less special, but seriously, I love this time of year so much.  I hope you had a week as wonderful as mine. One of the things that I would love to have more of

End of Summer Fruit Salad

End of Summer Fruit Salad

If fruit salad was a song, it would be my theme song for this summer.  I know that made no sense, but lets just go with it.  I am still riding the high of summer so I am not sure any of my last several posts have made any sense. I have brought fruit salad

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

Vegan Broccoli Salad

Vegan Broccoli Salad

I am “back” from my staycation, and boy was it awesome.  I think the fact that I read 2 whole books in a few days is a pretty good indication of how amazing and relaxing the time off was.  I needed it because it had been so long since I had been able to devour

Vegan Ranch Dressing

Vegan Ranch Dressing

I think Ranch Dressing can make almost anything tasty.  In high school I had friends who ate ranch dressing on their pizza.  It always looked delicious, but pretty obsene too. With the warmer weather kicking in (which has been so amazing, I want it to be summer forever) I have been craving lighter food, and

Winter Fruit Salad

Winter Fruit Salad

Even though it’s snowing here, and has been pretty chilly this week, I am still starting to shift toward incorporating some lighter foods.  And this week Hubby and I have been trying to avoid most sugars.  Fruit salad has been such a wonderful way to end the night on a sweet note!! I was actually
