Caribbean Tofu & Coconut Rice

I only started cooking with tofu in 2017. For the first few months, I only made tofu scramble. Later in the year, I started actually cutting tofu, seasoning it and eating it as a side with dinner or adding it to a sandwich. When I initially started my blog, I wanted to recreate my favorite…

Vegan Coquito (Puerto Rican Eggnog)

Happy New Year!! My Vegan Coquito recipe is here! Some people will say this post is a late because Christmas is over. Oh, contraire, my friend. It’s just in time for Three King’s Day (January 6th)! Coming from a traditional Puerto Rican Household, my family always has coquito from Thanksgiving to Three King’s Day (El…

Pumpkin-Spiced Sweet Potato

The Pumpkin Spice craze is everywhere! Funny thing, Pumpkin Spice is available year around. Sure, you’d have to make it yourself but who doesn’t love a good DIY!? Keeping up with autumn’s trend, I present to you, Pumpkin-Spiced Sweet Potatoes! Personally, I love, love, love almond butter. I might actually eat too much of it!…

Blueberry- Coconut Overnight Oats

I USUALLY have a green smoothie for breakfast and as a snack, I sometimes have overnight oats. Loaded with fiber and nutrients, it’s a great away to curb you appetite before lunch. I have such a busy schedule and anything I can do to make my day easier, I am all ears. Overnight oats are…

Creamy [Coconut] Bacon Brussell Sprouts

It’s officially autumn and what better way to break it in than Brussell Sprouts?! I don’t remembering having Brussell Sprouts before I became a vegetarian (in June 2013). I really did not know what I was missing. I love Brussell Sprouts now. Changing my diet really opened my mind and palette to so many great…

Coconut-Raisin Flakes Cereal

Cereal & Cartoons. A nostalgic duo reminiscent of Saturday morning in the 90’s! Growing up I loved sugary cereals like Fruity Pebbles, Cocoa Puffs, Captain Crunch, etc. After making this lifestyle change, I don’t crave sweets much. I even like stevia now! I never use white, granulated sugar in anything I eat. Usually, Stevia, coconut…

No-Bake Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites

I seriously love these no-bake bites! They are so easy to make and take away my sweet tooth with no guilt. I don’t know about you, but I was the kid who would eat the cookie dough right from the package and licked the cake batter out of the bowl! Later in life, you find…

Coconut BLT

As a previous meat eater, my go-to sandwich was a BLT. I’ve always craved savory, crunchy food. So a BLT was an easy choice. When I adopted a plant based diet, I was elated to know there was vegan bacon! When I discovered I could make my own, I was excited but thought I couldn’t…

Coconut Bacon

Some time ago, I wrote an article titled “The Vegetarian Who Eats Bacon” and shared a Tempeh Bacon recipe. I find that people are intimidated by tempeh and won’t try it. Once they try it they either love it or hate it. So, as an alternative vegan bacon option, I introduce Coconut Bacon! This recipe…
