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

nutrient dense salad

  **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 […]

Egg-Free French Toast

egg free french toast

  My idea of an active rest day yesterday morning involved experimenting with Egg-Free French Toast. Under all of that peanut butter is Cinnamon Raisin Ezekiel Bread cooked French toast style. I learned the other day that 1/4 of a banana = one egg when substituting in recipes. If you knew about this substitution ratio and didn’t tell me, […]

Grain-Free Banana Bread Bites (Or Crumble)

  I keep meaning to update my Vegetarian Meal Ideas post to show you how I don’t need to meal plan, I just need to have specific ingredients always on hand in order to whip up good food fast. One of my must-have pantry items is Organic Chick Peas. Chick Peas and Garbanzo Beans are the same thing. I […]

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 […]

Three Tip Tuesday – Two Links + A Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

  I ran six miles yesterday on the treadmill. Simply stating this fact to you without including details really doesn’t tell you much other than the number of miles. See. Just telling you I ran 6 miles now looks totally different, doesn’t it? There is nothing wrong with breaking up your runs. I don’t always, […]
