Mango-Kalein’ it Smoothie Bowl

I love green smoothies! I try to have a green smoothie daily. It’s light, refreshing and filling. There is so much nutrition in a green smoothie and the way I feel afterward is like nothing else. I get that if you haven’t had a green smoothie before, the idea can be intimating. It takes a…

Spicy Stuffed E.G.G.S (V, GF)

Eggplant! There are no eggs in this recipe at all! Not even tofu (which is commonly used to make vegan eggs). E.G.G.S stands for Eggplant Garlic Ginger Spinach. So the star of this show is the Eggplant! Everyone loves eggplant! Right?! The first time I had eggplant was Eggplant Parmesan many year ago. It wasn’t until I…

Garlicky Alfredo Pasta

Traditional creamy pasta sauces, such as an Alfredo sauce, are super good. However, they are not so good for you. Although I am a vegetarian, I monitor and balance my dairy intake. This recipe is completely vegan and protein based! I blended white beans with some amazing flavors that will satisfy your creamy craving! It’s really…

Tropical Pineapple-Apple Green Smoothie

Green-green smoothies everywhere, right?! For good reason! They are super good for you. You’re probably thinking that you already knew that. But you need to believe and try it to know what I’m really saying. Just because they are green, doesn’t mean they are gross! I promise! You can adjust the smoothie to your liking…

Greek stuffed Peppers & Cumin Spiced Chickpeas

Greek food is my all-time favorite cuisine. It’s fresh, light and flavorful. I’m always trying to come up with a twist to traditional recipes. I love when it works out, like in this instance! Spiced rice and chickpeas make this recipe go ‘round! This is simple recipe but takes a while to make but only…

Tempeh Steak

“Anything you can do, I can do better”. Questions I get asked oh so frequently because I am a vegetarian- “Don’t you miss steak?” and/or “Don’t you miss meat?” The answer is no! I do not miss meat. There are so many other options to choose from and when I am done eating I don’t feel…

Cashewless Vegan Cheese Sauce

Go vegan or go home! Just kidding!! Stay a while. As I’ve said before, I am a proud vegetarian! I am vegetarian mostly because there is no alternative like actual cheese. Besides, many vegan cheeses available on the shelf are processed and have additives. My favorite vegan cheese, however, is Pepper jack shreds by Daiya….

Healthy 20 minute Go-To Pizza

Pizza on Toast?! Yes! …So I was really low on groceries at home because I was going on vacation in a few days and didn’t want to buy groceries- didn’t want to come home to rotting veggies and such in my refrigerator! I used what was in my pantry and fridge to come up with…

Blueberry Hammock

You are probably looking at the picture thinking “Where is the hammock?!” Well, let me explain. The name of this Protein Shake, Blueberry Hammock, came from the 2  ingredients that make this shake unique: Blueberries & Maca Powder. In Spanish a hammock is translated to “hamaca”.  Growing up, my family called a hammock “maca”- We had…

Burger Sauce (V, G)

Serving Size: Spreadable for about 4 burger patties (depending on the patty size).  “I’m sauce-say!” No, not really but I do love a good sauce! As a proud vegetarian, with vegan habits, I try my best to limit my cheese intake. Some foods, such as sandwiches and pasta, I don’t need cheese anymore because I use…
