It will come as no surprise to my readers that I love really healthy recipes that are also really delicious. I also love recipes that are easy to make, inexpensive, and do double-duty to make life a little bit easier (dinner one night, lunch the next day). Bonus points to recipes that don’t create a […]
When people talk about the benefits of a plant-based diet, they frequently cite the health advantages, the ethical virtues, and the ecological good you’ll be effecting. But you know what doesn’t get mentioned a lot? The fact that skipping the meat can make for a much lower grocery bill. Maybe it doesn’t get mentioned […]
Granola. It’s not exactly the sexiest food, is it? More often than not, it’s code for hippy-dippy and hyper-eco-friendly. Granola is also a source of great confusion. It’s frequently pitched as a hearty, healthy breakfast option, but an alarming number of the store bought options are loaded with sugar, fat, and calories… and are sometimes […]
My Guacamole Hummus (I was going to call it guacummus or hummamole but thought better of it) combines two of your favorite things and is ready in a flash. Plus it’s vegan, full of protein and fiber, and is just as good on crunchy veggies as it is on tortilla chips.
Order jalapeno poppers at any local pub, and you’ll get balls of deep-fried weirdness and watered down marinara sauce. These, mercifully, are not that. Fresh roasted jalapenos give a great kick alongside a cheesy, mexican-style filling.
Pictured here on my Perfect 7 Layer Dip, this lighter take on traditional guacamole will be ready in less than 5 minutes, and will guarantee that you’ll never, ever, ever buy store-bought guacamole again. The only downside? Your friends will always want you to make it.
Ok, your boyfriend might rolls his eyes at this one. But if you’re looking to keep your calories low on game day, these roasted cauliflower bites are a great option for satisfying your cravings and keeping your calories in check. Be sure to serve these piping hot!
This three ingredient, no-sugar added dessert is so easy, it barely even really deserves to be called a recipe. Vegan, low-cal, and no-bake, these will be ready to be an easy dessert or a 3pm snack in a flash.
This filling, nutritious, and totally delicious vegan bake is a comforting Fall dinner, especially for a Meatless Monday! Red bell peppers give you loads of vitamins A & C, while lentils serve as a great source of protein and fibre. And not only is this dinner low in everything bad and high in everything good, […]
“Cookie” might not be the right word to use here. Sort of like my popular banana-based protein cookies, these are low-cal, sugar free, vegan, gluten-free little baked morsels of pumpkiny goodness. And while their natural sweetness easily satisfies a dessert craving, they’re no one trick ponies; they’re great as a quick breakfast on-the-go or a hunger […]
