Meal delivery services have long been capitalizing on our lack of time and effort. We applaud them for it. But, do they really deliver? To narrow down the options, we first wanted to try Veestro and share our review with you all.
Blue pie, sounds fun, right? I thought so. We made this raw dessert at my last Spring workshop and it was definitely a crowd favorite! Made with Blue Majik, a blue-green algae known for it’s anti-inflammatory properties, it’s good for you too :)
Sometimes, the simplest of meals are often the best. These tacos were created when I started working with the Oklahoma City Fire Department, as I wanted to teach an easy recipe that was filling for the times when firefighters get busy and have to eat to sustain their energy for an entire day
I always post pictures of meals like the chickpea and dill tacos, summer detox salads, or lentil sloppy joes - yet 9/10 times I am sitting behind a computer screen eating the most simple salad ever. I figured it was time to share one of my daily rituals with you - as this salad is the easiest of the easy, and it’s my go-to when I am in a hurry or just not in the mood to cook.
We all love tacos, or at least I love tacos. These summer tacos changed my eating habits for 3 weeks straight. I still can’t get enough. If you love dill - these tacos are for you. I taught this recipe at my most recent Eat to Live workshop, and now I am sharing the recipe because it’s just too good not to, and I believe we all deserve to love these summer tacos as much as I do.
This salad is one of my all time favorites - especially in the summer when I want something light and refreshing. It was created by my cousin who’s an esthetician [the absolute best] and I think in her words this salad is “skin food!” If you’re ever having one of those days where you’re just feeling kind of “blah,” this salad will be your new best friend.
Salads are kind of my thing. I love all kinds of salads, and I normally go overboard with them, but sometimes simplicity is just SO NICE. This salad is just that. It’s simple to make but doesn’t lack in flavor. It’s the perfect salad to pair with a main entree or to load up on for a healthy lunch.
Here’s the deal. I love mayonnaise. And when I say I love it, that’s kind of an understatement. When I was a kid I would eat mayo on slices of cheese like it was being taken away from me a moment later. Also, don’t ask me if I liked mayonnaise or miracle whip better - because I’ll tell you both.
If you’re ever looking for easy snacks to make in advance - these are your new friend! Especially if you have just a little bit of a sweet tooth but don’t want so consume any refined sugars. These little guys may be addicting, but they are filling, easy, and nutritious!
These crispy spirulina bites are the perfect snack! They are packed with nutrition, but they also feed the need for something sweet and something crunchy. They make a great snack on planes, road trips, or even just a long day of work.
I walked into one of my favorite raw food cafes and saw a “Spirulina Grapefruit” smoothie on the menu. I was intrigued. It sounded disgusting to be honest, but they said it was their house favorite - so I had to at least try it. Much to my surprise, I LOVED IT. So much so that I came home and started experimenting with recipes.
Growing up, I probably ate a few too many Manwich’s. They were one of my dinner time staples, especially if I was home alone and left to fend for myself. I loved those silly commercials too, I can still hear it playing in my head.
This one was created on a rainy day, when I had lots of time on my hands and decided to throw an impromptu dinner party. It turned out better than expected and I’ve probably eaten is 10x since then. It’s more filling and flavorful than you would expect - so don’t be afraid to entertain your carnivore friends and watch as they go for seconds.
Cookies were definitely my favorite thing growing up - and making cookies for santa seemed liked a nice gesture and all but I really just wanted to make them so I could also have cookies on Christmas Eve.
Tacos… a genius invention. I was never a huge fan of tacos until about a year ago. Even now I don’t have them often, but I do find it’s a fun way to get people to try new vegetables and sauces that they might not have otherwise tried.
With Thanksgiving being 2 weeks away, I am getting all kinds of questions like, “Well, what do you do for Thanksgiving?” or “How do I stay on track and not feel miserable while also partaking in Thanksgiving festivities?”
This soup is incredibly filling which is nice for the warmer months or for when you want a simple meal to eat on throughout the week. It is a great addition to dinner parties and will leave your guests asking for the recipe!
Typically I am not a huge fan of traditional oatmeal because it often leaves me feeling heavy, but sometimes, overnight oats are the perfect in-between. You can have them hot or cold and tend to feel more filling and nurturing in the cooler months.
One of my first “challenges” as a vegan was to create a healthy, plant-based version of meatloaf. I tried and tried and tried until I finally figured it out with this bad boy. This recipe was actually published in the Vegan Food Share Cookbook back in the day.
If I’m being honest, I haven’t had traditional cheesecake in over 7 years, so I really don’t remember what it tasted like. All I know is that I have served this cheesecake countless times, and I have NEVER had anyone complain.
