I love carrot cake but I’m not a huge fan of complex, multistep baking recipes.  So this easy breakfast solution is the perfect way to have your cake (see what I did there?) and eat it too.  It is like a deconstructed carrot cake… but healthy.

Sneaking in a vegetable in the morning makes me […]

Goji Berry Chocolate Chip Cookies

I’m always trying to find new ways to incorporate superfoods into my diet.  Here, goji berries provide a superfruit boost to already healthy cookies.  Goji berries have a chewy texture similar to raisins or dried cranberries so they work great in these cookies.  These soft-baked cookies are vegan and gluten free and not overloaded with sugar.

Thanksgiving is over.  Time to reset before the holidays!  If you overdid it on the pies and dinner rolls, this “meal-in-a-bowl” vegetable soup will get you back on track.  Split pea soup is a fantastic (and inexpensive) option for vegans or anyone trying to live a little healthier as it contains plant-based protein, iron, […]

Vegan & Gluten-Free Sweet Potato, Zucchini & Potato Latkes (Baked)

These vegan and gluten free latkes will make your healthy Hanukkah dreams come true!  Even though they are baked instead of fried, they still get crispy.  I promise.  To keep things light and vegan, skip the sour cream and serve them with creamy hummus or unsweetened apple sauce for a healthful snack any time […]

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.
