Tomato Mango Black Bean and Corn Salad (vegan)

Don’t. Panic.  It’s September.  Which is kind of scary.  Because.. um, didn’t summer just get here?  Am I turning into a stereotypical adult who thinks time flies too fast?  I am going to be honest with you here.  I am totally fine with being a sterotype.  I think that when I do yoga, slather on

Vegan BLT Salad

Usually by this time of the summer I am over salads.  Because I tend to eat them a lot.  That is not the case this year.  I don’t know what it is about salads that have me so hooked, but I think I am going to go straight from salad obsession to soup obsession as

Vegan Classic Coleslaw (with Cashew Mayo)

I have a confession to make.  It seems wrong to admit that despite this being the absolute best time of the year for amazing, delicious, local, beautiful produce… I find myself not as motivated to spend a ton of time in the kitchen.  Gasp! Now that I have that off my chest (phew!), I have

Vegan Thai Stir Fry

I grew up watching the TGIF tv lineup on Friday night.  Yep, I am a child of the 90s!  I had a t shirt that changed colors in the sun and lots and lots of scrunchies. One of the shows I loved watching on TGIF was Boy Meets World.  I think it was hard not

Vegan Taco Salad

You are not going to find me complaining about the heat.  Making jokes about my office being a 2-for-1 sauna and office? You bet.  It just means I can save the money and not splurge on the sauna desk I have been eyeballing.  (But seriously, though I kinda want that thing…) I think I am

Lemon Pepper Asparagus Quinoa

Lemon Pepper Asparagus Quinoa

Every year when asparagus season rolls around, I find myself doing the same thing.  Eating all the asparagus I can possibly fit into my stomach, and talking about how much I like to eat all of the asparagus.  And then I get so sick of asparagus that its ok that it won’t be another year

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

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

Vegan Roasted Asparagus and Tomato Pizza With Spelt Pizza Crust

This was a dinner totally inspired by our most recent trip to Disney.  We went to the beautiful California Grill restaurant, which overlooks the Magic Kingdom.  I love the place because of the views and the huge windows that flood the restaurant with light.  Not to mention I have had some of the best food

Grilled Avocado and Asparagus Salad (vegan)

This weekend we uncovered the grill and I did a happy dance (literally).  Then I lazied around outside reading, while hubby used our old school mower on the lawn (a workout with a pretty lawn bonus!), and I collected a brain full of things to be thankful for. It had been suggested to me for

Quinoa with Peas and Parsley (vegan)

Hubby and I recently got back from a little get away.  To my happy place (Disney World).  I often feel overwhelmingly like I am the luckiest princess in all the land. I came back full of inspiration for new recipes to try out.  We ate some incredible food. In the past, we usually eat lots

Vegan Leafy Greens

Vegan Leafy Greens

One of those things that I feel like I hear about a lot is how good greens are for you.  Because… they are.  End of post? Just kidding, I just thought that since greens are so good for you, and can be so delicious with very little effort, I should share my favorite way to
