  • Vegan Butternut Squash Soup with Sage Croutons

    March 20, 2020 by

    During times like these, it’s comforting to have food that has a long shelf life. Butternut squash, along with most other winter squashes, will last 1-2 months if stored in a cool, dark place like a pantry. This makes it a great pantry stocking option that is nutritious as well as tasty. Another great reason… Read more

  • Vegan Buffalo Sweet Potatoes

    March 18, 2020 by

    Things are getting crazy here in California amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. I won’t get too much into it in this post (might do another one later), but what I will say is there are some silver linings mixed in with the chaos. One of those silver linings is having the time at home to prepare… Read more

  • Vegan Teriyaki Tofu Bowls

    March 8, 2020 by

    Tofu is not something we eat very often in our house, but when I do make it, I want it to be as flavorful and least tofu-like as possible. This teriyaki bowl recipe is a great vegan substitute for a typical chicken teriyaki bowl with vegetables and rice. If you prefer to not include tofu,… Read more

  • Quick & Easy Vegan Enchiladas

    February 24, 2020 by

    I could probably eat Mexican-style food every day for a year and not grow tired of it. Even eating as a vegan without real cheese, Mexican food is hands down some of the tastiest and satisfying type of food out there. I love this recipe in particular because it’s packed with veggies, it’s quick and… Read more

  • Easy Vegan Cauliflower Alfredo

    February 18, 2020 by

    I love pasta! Who doesn’t, right? Red sauce is fairly easy to replicate as a vegan dish. It’s easy because it’s made of mostly vegetables. Simply omit the meat in meat sauce and you have a vegan red sauce (at least, usually). Alfredo can be a bit more tricky. It’s creamy and thick and has… Read more

  • Vegan Penne Primavera

    February 11, 2020 by

    I’ve almost reached 2 whole months of eating vegan, and I gotta say, I like how it’s going. The food is delicious, made of fresh ingredients, and I don’t feel like crap after eating it. This particular recipe is going to be a new favorite in my house because I always seem to have random… Read more

  • Post Dry January Check In

    February 10, 2020 by

    Hey guys, sorry it’s been so long since I’ve posted. I suppose I feel like I’ve been in a bit of a creative slump lately. But I do want to check in really quick to do a sort of “post” check-in after my Dry January experience. I’ve had a couple nights of drinking (literally, two… Read more

  • Dry January Final Check-In

    February 1, 2020 by

    The final day of January is here. Technically, it’s the first day of February, but I digress. I should say, the final day of Dry January is here and I’m happy to report that I made it. I started this trip on January 5th and tomorrow I will have my first drink since the 4th.… Read more

  • Vegan Applesauce Ginger Oatmeal

    February 1, 2020 by

    Oatmeal is an easy and filling breakfast staple. Mix it with fruit and you’ve got yourself something really tasty. This particular version uses my Easy Sugar-Free Applesauce recipe, or you can use your favorite applesauce instead. I do add sugar as well but if you prefer to leave that out feel free to do so.… Read more

  • Vegan Oil-Free Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

    January 27, 2020 by

    Sweet potatoes are one of my favorite ingredients. They are versatile, easy to cook and inexpensive, making them a great option for any meal. This particular meal is great because you can eat it any time of day depending on what ingredients you use. I used this recipe for lunch for the last couple of… Read more

  • Day 17: Dry January

    January 21, 2020 by

    Wow, my last Dry January check-in was utterly and terribly depressing. I really was feeling like crap though, so I guess it was my real feelings coming through (ha, sorry). Fortunately, I’m feeling MUCH, MUCH better this week. I still have a little bit of a cough, but I think I’m mostly mended. I think… Read more

  • You Don’t Have To Be a Vegan

    January 16, 2020 by

    This is a post I’ve been wanting to write for a while, but I guess haven’t had the time or focus to word vomit my thoughts onto the internet. It’s a topic that is close to my heart and has grown increasingly more important to me over the last year or so. I believe that… Read more

  • Vegan Sweet Potato and Portabello Fajitas

    January 15, 2020 by

    Fajitas are easily in my list of top five easy dinners. They are quick, they are cheap and they are absolutely delectable. These particular fajitas are also great because the ingredients are so versatile. Don’t like mushrooms? Add more sweet potatoes. Not a sweet potato fan? Add more mushrooms! Or heck, go get some Beyond… Read more

  • Day 10: Dry January

    January 14, 2020 by

    Today is day 10 of my first ever Dry January, and wouldn’t you know it, I’m feeling like crap. It’s annoying really. Anyone who has ever done this whole sober-for-a-month thing has told me how “great” I’m going to feel. “Your head will feel so clear”, they said. “You’ll sleep great”, “You’ll have more energy”,… Read more

  • 2020 Resolution #4: Shop Small / Fair / Less

    January 9, 2020 by

    Shopping in 2019 was basically not a thing. I told myself I was not allowed to purchase anything new unless it was absolutely necessary, and for the most part I followed that for an entire year. I did buy a couple of things that were necessary and did buy myself nice things a couple times… Read more

  • 2020 Resolution #1: Dry January + Better Health

    January 6, 2020 by

    Every New Year it seems I am trying harder and harder to make promises to myself to take better care of my body. Last year it was a two week detox from alcohol, smoking and sweets, this year I’m tackling an entire month (well, most of it). It’s going to be a challenge for sure,… Read more

  • Vegan Black Beans and Greens Meal Prep

    January 5, 2020 by

    Sunday is meal prep day! And today I made delicious protein and fiber-packed bowls that I can’t wait to eat throughout the week. This recipe is also super simple to make, inexpensive, and extra filling. The ingredients are also available pretty much year round making this the perfect meal prep for any season. Black beans… Read more

  • New Year’s Resolutions 2020

    January 5, 2020 by

    2020 is here. There is no more running, procrastinating or delaying. The New Year is here, and it’s here to stay… at least, until the next one comes around. Last year, I used this blog as an accountability-type place to record my progress on my 2019 resolutions. I found that it certainly helped in keeping… Read more
