Vegan Protein Breakfast Smoothie

Since being on summer vacation, I've been reveling in my slow, lazy mornings. During this past school year, I was getting up at 4 am to get to the gym by 5. The gym I was training at is 30 minutes away and I needed all the time I could get to wake up fully… Continue reading Vegan Protein Breakfast Smoothie

Plant Based Staples to Keep in Your Kitchen

I absolutely love to cook. Considering the direction this blog has been going, I think that's pretty obvious!  If I can find a recipe to make something homemade instead of buying store-bought, I will absolutely try the homemade version. My husband likes to tease me about this, saying I have to do everything the hard… Continue reading Plant Based Staples to Keep in Your Kitchen

Vegan Quesadillas

So as you may remember, I recently perfected a Plant Based Cheese Sauce. It's freakin' delicious and if you haven't tried it yet, I HIGHLY recommend it. Since I created that cheese sauce, I've been playing around with how it can be used in various recipes (see my Vegan Broccoli and Cheese Casserole recipe). I've tried… Continue reading Vegan Quesadillas

Vegan Broccoli and Cheese Casserole

This. Recipe. Is. Bomb. Let's be honest, I love anything that is cheesy, but this recipe really is delicious. It's the perfect, healthier alternative to traditional broccoli and cheese casserole. This recipe calls for  brown rice, broccoli, and one batch of my very versatile Plant Based Cheese Sauce. Lots of checks on Dr. Gregor's Daily Dozen!… Continue reading Vegan Broccoli and Cheese Casserole

Plant Based Cheese Sauce

I love finding someone else's recipe and trying it out. The process of trying to figure out another chef's creation and customizing the recipe to my preferences (something I hope you do when you try out my recipes) is fun for me. That's exactly what I did when I tested Lauren Toyota's Nacho Cheese Sauce from… Continue reading Plant Based Cheese Sauce

Buffalo Tofu Sandwiches

I always loved the buffalo flavor, so it's nice to have a meaty, yet vegetarian substitute for buffalo chicken wings. This recipe is extremely simple and can be adapted to make patties (as shown below) or… Continue reading Buffalo Tofu Sandwiches

The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

No, really. This is the best chocolate chip cookie recipe ever. I've hesitated to share this recipe. Not because it hasn't been thoroughly tested or because they aren't truly the best chocolate chip cookies. I've hesitated because I'm sort of known in my circle of family and friends for these cookies. I make them for most… Continue reading The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

5 Reasons a Plant Based Diet is the Most Nutritious Diet

I think that as a society, we are quite aware of the health problems in westernized countries. We are suffering from diseases of indulgence. Diseases that were once only found in the wealthiest people of society. Look around your circle of friends and family, and I bet you know at least one person suffering with… Continue reading 5 Reasons a Plant Based Diet is the Most Nutritious Diet

As I've shared more of my story, I'm approached by people who are interested in trying some new recipes and experimenting with a more plant-based diet. When I share recommendations based on my own research and experiences, the same thing always comes up: There's no way I can be fully vegan.

Black Bean and Sweet Potato Veggie Burgers

I love a good veggie burger. Anytime Kyle and I go out to dinner, that's the first thing I look for on a menu. Now that we live in a new town, it's like a game trying to find the best veggie burgers. The problem is, very few of the restaurants (only 2 so far)… Continue reading Black Bean and Sweet Potato Veggie Burgers
