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…

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…

Turkeyless Beanballs

A spin on a classic: Meatballs. Well, beanballs. More protein and flavor than traditional meatballs. I used to get excited about spaghetti and meatball night when I was kid because it was rare that we had it. My mom usually cooked traditional Puerto Rican food. Therefore ordering out and cooking food from other cultures was…

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….

Chocolate Green Smoothie

Chocolate in a green smoothie? Yes! Why not?! One day I woke up with the biggest craving for chocolate. I knew I wanted to start my day with a green smoothie so I figured, I’d add chocolate to my smoothie. The trick was figuring out how to get it sweet without too much fruit and…

[Brown Rice] Breakfast Sausage

These Brown Rice Breakfast Sausages are going to blow you away! It’s my favorite food to eat now-a-days. I’ve been posting pictures on my Instagram page lately but, at long last, here’s the recipe! I must admit, the idea of Brown Rice Breakfast Sausage seems a bit odd. But think about it. There are quinoa burgers out…
