A friend of mine with two little boys she sends off to school each day asked if I could share some healthy lunch ideas that could be packed up sent off for the day. I was so excited about this idea because while I’m passionate about every meal, lunch gets me so excited. Long story short: lunch is magical.
I have a smoothie every single day (as many of you know!) and I try sneak as many heavy hitters in there as possible. Every time I share a smoothie recipe on Instastories, I get asked so many questions about why I add certain ingredients into my smoothie. Each powder and potion in my smoothie is tailored to me and what I need from it, but each ingredient benefits literally everyone
on the planet! Since switching my diet to plant based a year ago I’ve found smoothies to be the easiest way to get all the nutrients I need in a meal in a single glass.
Summertime! Watermelon and Pasta Salad and Barbecue and Lemonade. While summer food doesn’t hold a candle to autumn food for me, there are some definite go-to’s I look forward to once June rolls around. This is my very first summer eating a vegan and gluten-free diet and I’m trying to be sure my kids still get the nostalgia I had growing up despite having to pass on the beer brats and corndogs.
I often post photos and videos of what I’m cooking for myself and my crew and so often, I get a message asking for the recipe of what I just made. Instead of sending link after link, I promised a blog post sharing a few current favorite new recipes I tried and immediately added to my go-to category. I’m the person that waits on pins and needles for someone to share the recipe when something looks fantastic so here’s my lineup, plus how I make each item gluten-free and vegan.
The combination of Egg Nog and Hot Chocolate no longer being acceptable to kick off the day mid-January and Valentines Day creepin’ around the corner has me super into this beet smoothie in the morning!
Well, Thanksgiving has come and gone. It was my first time cooking a full on Thanksgiving meal. I usually still have made turkey and ham and alllll the animals for Thanksgiving dinner even though I’ve made vegan dishes for O. Do you want to know one of the first things I thought of when we all gave up meat in August? Thanksgiving. It popped in my head and made a pit in my stomach and I began scheming pretty much right away. Here are the recipes I used this year including some old favorites and some recipes I took a chance on that were a hit!
