Peanut Butter & Jelly Smoothie Bowl (Vegan, Gluten-Free, Banana-Free)

I’ve been craving a peanut butter and jelly sandwich ever since it graced the cover of Bon Appetit last month. I mean, you try looking at this photo and tell me it doesn’t make you want to eat one! I know what you’re thinking, why…

3 Ingredient Creamy Vegan Tahini Dressing You’ll Want to Put on Everything

3 Ingredient Creamy Vegan Tahini Dressing You’ll Want to Put on Everything

How many ingredients are on the label of your store-bought salad dressing? Seriously, check. I’ll wait. I’m willing to bet it’s more than three. One of them may even be sugar or some variety of it. At this point you may be thinking, “but, I use ‘lite’ dressing,…

Creamy No Fruit Smoothie

Creamy No Fruit Smoothie

I’m all about smoothies for breakfast. Not only are they an easy way to start the day packed with good nutrients, but it also takes decision making out of the equation when you’re pressed for time and much more likely to grab something unhealthy out of…

5-Ingredient Healthy Date Bars (Vegan, Gluten-Free)

5-Ingredient Healthy Date Bars (Vegan, Gluten-Free)

A new recipe, a new confession: I LOVE dates. My love of dates goes beyond healthy. Needless to say, I cannot keep them in my house. Because, if they are in the house, they aren’t there for long. Case in point: when my mom and…

Roasted Beet Hummus – Vegan, Gluten Free

Roasted Beet Hummus – Vegan, Gluten Free

Confession: I’ve been known to eat hummus with a spoon. By itself. Typically, after a confession, a person will state that they aren’t proud of their behavior and vow to change. I’m NOT doing that. I’ll never apologize for my love of hummus. Especially, when it’s…

Vegan Peanut Butter Mocha Protein Smoothie

Vegan Peanut Butter Mocha Protein Smoothie

I have a confession to make. One that goes against the female stereotype and makes my mom wonder if I was switched at birth and not, in fact, her biological daughter. I don’t like chocolate. Seriously, chocolate is NOT my thing. When given the choice…

Roasted Root Vegetable and French Lentil Salad Meal Prep (Vegan, Gluten-free)

When you think of a salad (as if a salad were a prominent part of your daily thoughts), I bet you don’t typically think of it as a winter meal. This recipe changes that. How? Well, as it turns out, a salad is more than just…

Roasted Kohlrabi and Butternut Squash with Dates

Roasted Kohlrabi and Butternut Squash with Dates

What the heck is kohlrabi?! That was my first question when it came in my CSA box. But, I tend to be adventurous (at least when it comes to vegetables), so I set out to find the perfect recipe for it. Apparently, I’m not the…

Clean Almond Butter Fat Bombs

Clean Almond Butter Fat Bombs

Despite their not so appealing title, these almond butter fat bombs are the BOMB! (I seriously couldn’t help myself). What are fat bombs? Fat bombs are high fat, low carb snacks. Wait, you want me to eat a snack that is filled with fat? Yep, I…
