Mini Peppers Stuffed with Roasted Sweet Pepper Hummus

I'm a huge fan of easy-to-pull-together nutritious finger-food.  These Mini Peppers Stuffed with Roasted Sweet Pepper Hummus are delicious bite-sized poppable party appetizers.  They are also vegan, gluten-free, nut-free and contain no refined sugar.

Quinoa Cauliflower “Rice”

Cauliflower rice has been a trend for a couple of years now and continues to be gaining popularity.  It is a great way to sneak more vegetables into your diet.  I love to make it with store-bought frozen riced cauliflower but you could certainly buy fresh or make your own cauliflower rice in your food

This smoothie has been giving me life lately.  It is my go-to reset smoothie and it tastes absolutely incredible.  It is creamy, sweet, earthy and has the most vibrant magenta color.  I love when nature makes gorgeous colors like this.

Chia seed pudding makes a creamy, satisfying and nutritious treat, pre-breakfast nosh or  mid-morning snack.  I have, in fact, enjoyed chia seed pudding on all these occasions.  It is pretty versatile but if I HAD to pick my favorite time to enjoy chia seed pudding it would be first thing in the morning if I'm

Lately I have been topping everything with this simple homemade granola: smoothie bowls, yogurt parfaits, chia seed pudding and oatmeal.  It adds a bit of crunch, nuttiness and sweetness and just seems to make everything that much better.  I even enjoy it plain or as a "cereal" with plant milk. This recipe only requires four
