5 Favorite Grain-Free Plant Based Weeknight Meals



My calendar is always the most full from October-December but it’s also the time of year I want to make delicious, elaborate meals. Despite my best intentions, Pinterest boards and magazine tear outs the soccer practices and endless events can sometimes mean we have leftovers for dinner one too many times (anyone else?) I’m so glad to have built up a little bit of a repertoire of easy meals to make in advance so that a jam-packed day doesn’t mean jam and almond butter sandwiches for dinner. 

My Daily Smoothie Secret Weapons



I have a smoothie every single day (as many of you know!) and I try sneak as many heavy hitters in there as possible.

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.

My Favorite Summer Vegan+ Gluten Free Recipes



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.

Recipes on Repeat

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.
