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!
