Finally Tried Plant Wise (plus other recent meals)

plantwise eatery

I finally tried Plant Wise Eatery and of course, now I’m obsessed. Plant Wise is not far from my house but closer to where I used to live and not really in the direction I head most of the time. However, I will now make it more of a destination area because I can’t get enough of […]

How To Make Power Bowls + Recipe Links

build your own plant based power bowl

  Laura and I began this week under the assumption that our recipe challenge for today would involve trying a new to us Power Bowl recipe. I am no stranger to eating Power Bowls. Power Bowls (or Buddha Bowls, the terms are often used interchangeably) have been my favorite go-to meals ever since switching to a meatless diet well over four […]

black bean and quinoa chili

black bean and quinoa chili vegan and plant based

  You are going to love this black bean and quinoa chili! I have a thing about chili. While I do like it, I just never crave a full bowl of chili as a meal. Sort of like meatloaf and my mother’s brisket back in the day when I still ate meat; I never actually wanted it […]

It’s Okay When What You Eat Changes

Cold Stone

  Jen from Peanut Butter Runner (one of my most favorite blogs and the first blog I ever read!) shared a terrific post last week called Food, Fitness and Feeling Good: Paving Your Own Way and Learning What Works For You. I think what I love most about her post is how she points out that a diet […]

WIAW- not one vegetable in this post

grilled mozzarella cheese

  That’s right, vegetables are an afterthought these days. Overall I have been feeling much better after that virus (which I decided was not a virus but some sort of food poisoning instead) but my stomach remains a bit sensitive which is so hard for someone like me who lives mostly on plant-based foods. Fruits and vegetables, which I normally thrive […]

Meatless Monday- Italian Style Power Bowl

Italian-Style-Plant-Based-Power-Bowl

  When I decide that I like something to eat, I tend to eat it over and over. Allow me to introduce you to my latest plant-based dinner obsession which is loaded with healthy complex carbs, a complete source of protein, nutrient dense veggies and most importantly, tons of satisfying flavor. Sweet potatoes, quinoa, veggies and marinara sauce = Italian Style […]

WIAW – Plant-Based Works For Me

  I surprised myself and ran six colorful miles yesterday morning. I guess I  was shocked to have felt like running again. I know I run a whole lot but a race is just different. The adrenaline combined with keeping up a quick pace for over 13 miles is taxing. Even with Monday’s easy shake out run, I sort of […]

My Kind Of Plant-Based Power Bowl

  I did a terrible thing Friday night and I hope you will forgive me. I enjoyed a slice of chocolate cake. The Cheesecake Factory’s Chocolate Tower Cake to be specific. I even shared it. The terrible part isn’t that I shared the cake (I did so willingly), it’s that I didn’t get a picture of it […]
