Raw Buckwheat Groats

I didn’t discover buckwheat groats until last year, 2017. Buckwheat groats look and taste a lot like steel cut oats, but the softer seeds can be enjoyed raw, like in this recipe.  I can’t quite remember where I saw them but when I completed my first raw vegan challenge, I ate buckwheat groats for breakfast…

Peaches & Cream Oatmeal

Summer peaches are the best! Remember those instant oatmeal packets that came in a variety pack? Those were one of favorite breakfast meals when I was a kid- especially the Peaches and Cream flavor! I decided to recreate a childhood favorite using a healthier more plant based approach. I replace the cream with coconut milk…

Fruit Punch Green Smoothie

No kidding, this green smoothie tastes like fruit punch! It’s not red. True. But don’t judge the flavor by the color. Pretty sure it has to do with the cherries and the dark greens I used! Making a green smoothie part of your daily routine is the best thing you can do for yourself! So treat…

Café con Leche (Coffee with Mylk)

I agree that TOO MUCH Coffee is not good. But some, in my opinion, is fine. I’ve been drinking coffee as far back as I can remember (read about it here or click here to hear me talk about it). For me, coffee is nostalgic and is one of those things in life I look…

Green Grape Green Smoothie

Making a green smoothie part of your day, especially starting your day, is the best thing you can do for yourself! It’s light and gives you energy. Remember when making smothies, you can adjust any smoothie to your liking (sweetness, texture, etc.).  If you are thinking your blender isn’t good enough, let me stop you right…

Bosc in Coconut Green Smoothie

Just because Green Smoothies are green, doesn’t mean they are gross! You can adjust any smoothie to your liking (sweetness, texture, etc.). This green smoothie is a good start for beginners or for those who want a morning/afternoon pick-me-up. It’s so good you won’t even care that it’s green. The coconut water is especially good in this smoothie because,…

Sourdough French Toast

Good old fashion French toast. Well, then again, if there are no eggs included is this old fashion? Regardless, this French toast tastes just like traditional French toast! What replaces the egg? Flax! When ground flax is added, the batter will thicken. If you are transitioning to a plant based lifestyle and think you will…

Blueberry Pancakes

Everyone needs a good plant based pancake recipe to rely on. I haven’t shared a pancake recipe in almost 4 years! The previous pancake recipe I shared is made with buckwheat flour. These are made with plain ol’ unbleached flour and have wild blueberries in the batter! Blueberry pancakes are my favorite kind of pancakes!…

Athena’s Eggy Empanada- Veganized!

I called this Athena’s Eggy Empanada because this recipe is Greek inspired- with the fresh dill and kalamata olives. In my previous recipe,  I used actual eggs and feta cheese. The kalamata olives replace the feta in this recipe. I did not miss the feta at all since it has a similar salty flavor as…

Salt and Pepper Biscuits

I have been making biscuits for over a year now but I have yet to share my recipe! I’ve tried making them several ways and this is my favorite. Adding garlic powder and nutritional yeast (the optional ingredients listed below) will add extra flavor and give these a cheesy taste- a perfect compliment to dinner….
