I’m not going to get it twisted here and claim that holiday sweets aren’t delicious. Because they are. But they’re also a little heavy and a few days of holiday parties/dinners/work things can leave you feeling less than stellar. This grab and go snack-breakfast-dessert will pretty much make you feel the opposite of that. Light, healthy, […]

anxiety reducing, magnesium boosting smoothie

  This green smoothie will get you through the most hectic, busiest, super stressful times of the year. I like to start up my days of a holiday party/dinner/etc with a giant green smoothie for breakfast. (I started drinking this over Thanksgiving weekend for breakfast each morning.) You might be tempted to skip food all […]

  Did you ever notice that it can be tough to eat healthy when traveling? I think the key to success with this is packing healthy portable vegan snacks. Instead of relying on finding healthy options at restaurants or convenience stores, you’re guaranteed healthy eats when you pack them yourself. These simple three ingredient peanut butter balls are an […]

pomegranate-acai-bowl

Read more 

My love of the acai bowl was probably born out of my love for ice cream. After I stopped eating dairy a few years ago, I discovered that pretty much any frozen fruit can be converted into “ice cream” with the right blender. I use a heavy duty Vitamix, but a food processor will work.  You can also […]

naturally sweetened granola coconut cashew 4 D

Over the past few months, I’ve been trying to curb my sugar addiction. The first step was to cut out any white refined sugar in my diet. I switched to more natural sugars like maple syrup and coconut sugar for awhile, but I’ve noticed that as I was still making baked treats and granola with these […]

mango ginger smoothie bowl

I’ve mentioned before that I would rather eat my breakfast over drinking it. Enter the smoothie bowl, which you can pile high with bomb-ass toppings like gluten-free muesli, fresh berries, and sliced banana. If you’re in the same eat-over-drink breakfast camp, add more frozen fruit to your smoothie and get down with the smoothie bowl! I’ve been on a mango […]

In honor of Mardi Gras (and Fat Tuesday), I’m bringing you a veganized version of one of my favorite childhood treats: the powdered sugar-covered Vanilla Kreme Donuts (seen here). I used to love these powdered sugar-drenched donuts loaded with sickeningly sweet vanilla cream. Because I now eat gluten-free vegan, I didn’t see eating one of these guys again […]

peanut butter and jelly collard wrap 2

  On days when I need a portable lunch option and I’m not in the mood for a smoothie (check out a smoothie roundup here), I usually pack some raw wraps. This PB&J wrap has been a favorite recently. It’s salty, sweet, and tastes delicious! You can pair them with some fruit to round out a full lunch. […]

juice pulp pancakes

← Read more

Have you tried making your own juice? I’ve shared a number of juice recipes before, but today I wanted to talk about the elephant in the juicing room- that poor, sad, fiberous pulp that is usually shoved down the garbage disposal. Leftover juice pulp contains flavor, phytochemicals, and fiber. You may be wondering what the purpose […]

quinoa 4 ways

Read more 

Whether you’re packing lunch for work, school, or a long day of shopping, quinoa is one of your best bets. Sometimes thought of as a grain, quinoa is actually a complete-protein seed. It contains all nine essential amino acids (which our bodies can’t make and must acquire from food). It’s also very versatile; you can make dishes […]

Happy Monday Lovelies! I thought we would start the week with a great batch of oatmeal. Last week I posted the Strawberry Banana Oatmeal recipe; this week, our flavors are cherry and cacao, which both offer numerous health benefits. Sweet cherries are high in potassium, which helps to keep fluids balanced in the body and […]

Strawberries and Coconut Whipped Cream go well together, but when you add in fluffy sweet pancakes you have a match made in gluten-free heaven. You can use the leftover Coconut Whipped Cream from Wednesday’s post to top these pancakes- it’s […]

 I love making a batch of oatmeal for breakfast in colder months- it’s warm, comforting, and one of my favorite parts of the morning. Now that it’s warm outside, I haven’t made oatmeal in a few weeks. It’s all about green smoothies and banana fruit ice cream. For some reason (I blame air conditioning), I woke up […]

SUMMER BERRY PIE BARS 2 s

Everyday, I’m usually in a coffee shop working. This is challenging at times, because my mind wanders (especially when I’m hungry). One thing that I’ve found that helps me stay focused AF is snacks. I always, always, always have some food on hand, because then I can’t use the old I’m hungry excuse for interrupting […]
