Thanksgiving Kale Salad with Maple-Lemon Tahini Dressing

Have you ever been asked to bring salad to dinner but want to do more than just lettuce, carrots, tomato and balsamic dressing?  This is the salad to end all salads and wow your friends and family.

It is really more than a salad.  Satisfying?  Yes.  Layers of texture? Yes.  Colorful, sweet, flavorful and festive?  Oh, […]

Apple-Cinnamon Cranberry Loaf w/ Streusel Topping & Vanilla-Maple Glaze

This easy, moist and festive loaf is the perfect holiday treat.  You can even serve it for brunch or breakfast with or without the glaze.  It is healthy and made with 100% whole grains.  Plus, it is gluten-free, vegan and soy-free.  The loaf itself (without the streusel topping and glaze) is entirely naturally sweetened […]

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. […]

Vanilla-Cinnamon Vegan Overnight Porridge

A no-cook, vegan, gluten-free, fast and easy breakfast.  Need I say more?  Oh, and it is creamy and full of vanilla cinnamon-y goodness.  You’re welcome.

Lately, busy mornings have called for this overnight porridge (similar to the popular overnight oats craze, but creamier with a pudding like texture).  It is super simple and takes under 3 minutes to […]

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 […]

Chocolate Rice Crisp Bites with Almond Butter Topping

With Halloween just over a week away and candy everywhere I look, I have been craving a homemade Halloween treat.  These Chocolate Rice Crisp Bites with Almond Butter are SUPER easy to make, 100% vegan and raw.

They are like a cross between a Nestle Crunch Crisp and a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup.  YUM!

You can […]

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 […]

Garlic Pumpkin Hummus

Hummus is already a super healthy snack option that can be served as a spread or dip with just about anything.  To make this plant-based protein snack even healthier, I’m adding fall’s favorite vegetable, pumpkin.  It works so well in this dish and adds a subtle orange hue that whispers, “I’m festive” when set out at a […]

Agave-Mustard Chickpea Salad

This is my all time favorite chickpea salad.  Not only is bursting with yummy flavor but it is quick and easy to make.  It is perfect for a portable lunch on the go since it is meat-free and super satisfying.  Even if you are not vegetarian, it is a great way to switch things up when you […]

Flourless Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

I have officially become a (healthy) cookie monster.  I may have a problem.  I make cookies basically every other night.  Oftentimes I eat them as a mid-morning snack.  And when they are this healthy, why not?

I kept these cookies entirely vegan and gluten-free.  They are oil free, butter free and use only 2 tablespoons […]
