Creamy Lemon-Parsley Hummus

This is my all-time favorite hummus recipe.  It is ultra-creamy and tastes so fresh with hints of lemon and parsley.  Avocado oil has been my go-to oil for homemade dips lately because it is neutral in flavor and doesn't overpower the dip like olive oil can sometimes do.  I left garlic out of this recipe

Creamy Citrus Matcha Green Protein Smoothie

This has been my go-to smoothie lately.  So many nutrients are packed in the most delicious, filling and refreshing smoothie I have had in awhile.  I never would have thought citrus in a smoothie would do such a great job of masking the greens and matcha, but it really does.  This green smoothie will hydrate

Baked Chocolate Chia Seed Donuts

Healthy donuts that can be eaten for breakfast?  Yes, it is true!  Wait, really!?  Yes, really!  They are baked and the main ingredients are oat flour, almond flour, chia seeds, non-dairy milk, unsweetened cocoa powder (or cacao powder) and maple syrup.  This means they are 100% vegan, gluten-free, refined sugar-free and full of good-for-you ingredients.

Brown Rice Black Bean Salad with Mango and Avocado

Rice and beans can be ho-hum unless you add the right flavors and complimentary ingredients.  I always see such fun and colorful salads at the Whole Foods salad bar and want to replicate at home.  It sure makes for great recipe inspiration! This recipe came together because I have recently been experimenting with my new Instant

Three-Ingredient Vegan Homemade Honey Mustard Sauce

Honey mustard sauce has always been my all-time favorite condiment.  I just love the creamy, sweet and bold flavor combo.  I use this easy homemade sauce for everything but my favorite combination is to use it with sweet potato fries.  It also works great as a vegetable dip or as a dressing on salads. You can

Creamy Chocolate Shake with Hidden Veggies

I've been on a 'sneaking in veggies' kick lately.  I'm trying to increase my vegetable intake whenever and wherever possible, especially since while pregnant vegetables are not always the most appetizing of foods.  This chocolate shake is such a sneaky way to get some cauliflower into your diet.  Stay with me here.  If you steam

Super Seed Granola

  Granola is easier to make than you would expect and is such a nutritious addition to non-dairy yogurt, smoothie bowls, oatmeal, parfaits and even good on its own or with a bowl of cold non-dairy milk and berries.  I sometimes pack the granola clusters in a small container and take it with
