Pecan-Cranberry Quinoa with Garlic-Maple Dressing

As everyone knows, quinoa is my go-to food.  It is so easy to prepare and offers such amazing health benefits.  It is loaded with fiber (one serving has over 5 grams) and is considered a complete protein with all eight essential amino acids which makes it a great source of plant-based protein for vegans. […]

Guilt-free Thanksgiving Sides (Dairy-Free Butternut Squash Soup, Roasted Root Veggies & Quinoa “Stuffing”)

Thanksgiving is a time of family, celebration — and thousands of calories.

But don’t blame the turkey. You’ll most likely find the calorie culprits right next to it: the sides. Many popular Thanksgiving cooking techniques include breading, frying or smothering with high-fat sauces that significantly increase calories and saturated fat. And we often miss out […]

Ooey Gooey Protein Brownies

Do white beans, Greek yogurt, oats and apple sauce make you think of baking brownies?  Unless you are me, probably not.  The only way I can convince you this works is the picture above (check out the ooey gooey-ness) and my promise that whenever I make these I get compliments from everyone.  People are always so […]

Pecan Maple Oatmeal Bowl

Now that mornings are cooler, my morning smoothies have become a bit less approachable and I am turning to warming breakfast options like oatmeal bowls.  Oatmeal is a great way to start your day.  According to the Whole Grains Council, oats are higher in protein and healthful fats and lower in carbohydrates than most […]

Pumpkin Pie Vegan Overnight Oats

Overnight oats have been all the rage these days.  I have Fall-ified this popular and speedy breakfast solution by incorporating pumpkin, October’s favorite vegetable.  I figured the only thing that could make vegan overnight oats healthier would be adding a vegetable.  It isn’t always easy incorporating vegetables into a busy day so why not start with […]
