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 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

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 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 Salad with Apricots

Vegan Salad with Apricots

Did you know that Friday was the first day of summer?  It’s officially summer!!! What I think is so fun about summer cooking is that you can pretty much just throw all the fresh produce you have in a bowl, dress it and call it a meal.  I think this one is especially fun because

Quinoa Berry Breakfast Salad

Quinoa Berry Breakfast Salad

This time of the year has many wonderful reasons to love it.  Beach season, grilling, cute dresses!!  But perhaps my favorite is the berries.  Well the produce in general right now is awesome, but I have a big crush on fruit right now.  Between the strawberries, blueberries, and the cherries.  Oh the cherries!!  I think

Banana Bread Oatmeal

Banana Bread Oatmeal

Banana bread is one of my favorite breakfasts.  Though, I feel like maybe I should admit that I also require my banana bread to include chocolate.  Either I smear it with nutella, or load up the batter with chocolate chips.  Either way, I think chocolate is never a bad way to start the day. I

I officially hate squats. Occasionally, Hubby acts as my personal trainer, which is usually fantastic because he makes me push myself.  But the other day he had me doing squats.  I guess I haven’t done squats in a while.  Because first my legs turned to jelly, and then for several days I could barely walk.

Baklava Oatmeal

Baklava Oatmeal

One of my favorite desserts that we made in pastry school was baklava.  Which super surprised me because I am a complete chocoholic.  So baklava being one of my favorites is kind of a big deal.  I even remember it was one of the very few things that we were allowed to take home, and

Pumpkin Granola Bars

Pumpkin Granola Bars

This is another manifestation of my pumpkin obsession.  You know how pumpkin flavored anything is delicious, and everything is better with chocolate?  Well pumpkin + chocolate is like heaven.  It can perk up even the kind of day where you are running late and then lock all of your keys (including the car keys) in

Vegan Peach Yogurt

Vegan Peach Yogurt

On our weekend excursion to Atlanta a few weekends ago, our lovely friends fed us a delicious yogurt concoction made with almond yogurt.  I became quickly addicted to the idea and the flavor.  As I have mentioned before, I have never been a huge fan of yogurt.  The almond variety, however, was delicious and I
