Plant Wise Meals + Plus Other Recent Eats

I have a nice round-up of recent meals to share including a few from Plant Wise. I read this week that Plant Wise will now be open on Saturdays instead of only during the week – I’m super excited about this! There are many more items from the menu that I would like to try so […]

What I’ve Eaten Recently!

Since I missed last Wednesday’s post, I included some extra meals and things to make up for it! I was very happy to see that Trader Joe’s had Ginger Turmeric Tea back in stock. I bought three boxes as well as my other necessities like chocolate chips, frozen blueberries for my daily oatmeal, and salad […]

Plant Wise + A Stop At Trader Joe’s

It’s that time of the week when we chat about recent meals! Since Plant Wise is only open on weekdays, my goal is to try to get out on Fridays for a quick lunch. It’s usually a little quieter for me workwise, at least in the sense that I should be able to run out […]

Finally Tried Plant Wise (plus other recent meals)

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 […]

Recent Salads and Meals Plus What’s Back In Stock

I held off a day on my usual Wednesday food-related chat because I’m off from work today which makes it easier to gather details together. While I don’t celebrate Christmas, I certainly appreciate this time of year for the it’s-the-holidays-time-to-take-off vibe! Just a few meals and things to share for today….let’s take a look. I […]

Recipe Challenge: Vegan Sloppy Joe’s

anything goes vegan sloppy joe's

  It’s Friday which means it’s time for week #2 of the Recipe Challenge Laura and I created for ourselves! In case you missed our first Recipe Challenge last week, you can check it out here. I loved those sweet potato, black bean and quinoa burgers. I had frozen a few of the burger patties from […]

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 […]

Meatless Meatballs – Vegan & Grain-Free

meatless meatballs

  I really could have called these meatless meatballs three ingredient meatless meatballs  because that’s all they really need in their most basic form, aside from spices of course but who counts the spices? So what’s the three ingredients you wonder? Cannellini beans (also known as white beans), nutritional yeast and some tomato paste. Yup, that’s it. […]

Lightened Up Vegan Apple Crisp

  This is just another example as to why I cannot set up and follow a strict blog editorial calendar. I had every intention of sharing next week’s dinners and grocery shopping with you today but then my son got sick and stayed sick all week, which totally threw me off. Talking to him about dinner […]

Chocolate Chip Cookie Bites (with vegan option)

  I wasn’t always good in the kitchen, especially when it came to baking, did you know that? I always loved dessert (especially chocolate chip cookies fresh from the oven) and really enjoyed the concept of baking my own but that concept took a long time to reach quality results. I made huge messes, combined […]

Oatmeal Raisin Chocolate Chip Cookies – Dairy Free

  Do you remember the first blog you ever read? I do. It was Peanut Butter Runner. I must have googled peanut butter and running or something to that effect and fell upon Jen’s blog which was right around three years ago. I have been a daily reader of Peanut Butter Runner ever since.  Peanut Butter Runner opened […]

WIAW- Food Over Medicine

  **The winner of the Stur Giveaway is Liz from the blog, I Heart Vegetables ** So yesterday I decided that blog posts are like coloring books. I will often select a page to color, get half way through the pretty picture, lose interest in the pattern and flip the pages to find a new […]
