How to Roast Beets

How to Roast Beets

Roasting beets is really easy, and they store beautifully.  I always roast them up as soon as I get them home, so I can throw together a quick dinner and not have to wait the 40 minutes for them to cook.  I have storage details at the bottom of the

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

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

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

Gluten Free Pizza (English Muffin Style)

Some weeks my favorite thing to do is come home from work and tinker in the kitchen.  There are times that I find it relaxing and comforting and it is kind of my way to unwind. Then I also have times when the most comforting thing to me is being able to make a healthy

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

This winter has certainly been a snowy one.  My driveway is resembling an ice fortress straight off the set of Frozen.  Clearly the marketing department at Disney has been hard at work making it an icy, snowy winter to promote the movie.  I did see it twice, so I guess it’s working!!  (Oops, my Disney

Happy Valentine’s Day!! We’re doing something fun and a little different today here on the blog!  I am super excited to have an extremely talented therapist (and yogi!) guest post on my site today.  Did I mention she is my sister?  But I am not biased, she really is super talented.   She and her

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

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

Chocolate Covered Clementines

I am pretty excited Valentine’s Day is next week.  I will take any excuse to eat chocolate. I know chocolate covered strawberries are the classic at this time of the year, but these are better.  Clementines are a lot less expensive right now, they are fresh and super sweet and in season, and when you
