Raw Cacao Espresso Smoothie

Raw Cacao Espresso Smoothie

We’ve just come back from a trek across the world from California to Hawaii to Bali and back. With so much tropical weather, it’s been strange to come back to California’s cold weather. It still felt like summer when we left, and now it’s all […]

Spiced Lemon Almonds

Spiced Lemon Almonds

Healthy, warming fall snacks? You mean besides pumpkin tortilla chips and hummus? In walks Spiced Lemon Almonds. A flavorful blend for taking your handful of almonds to the next level. Also, a great addition to tapas night. We love to do a snack nights at home. […]

Wiccan Brew Smoothie

Wiccan Brew Smoothie

Wiccan Brew Smoothie. Name and inspiration from our local, health food store here in town. Although, I wish I could take credit for the name, because I like how powerful it makes this simple 6 ingredient smoothie: blueberry, spirulina, almond milk, banana, coconut water, and […]

Ultra-Moist, Gluten-Free Banana Muffins

Ultra-Moist, Gluten-Free Banana Muffins

Over the years, I’ve tried to make my Nana’s Banana Bread healthier, but still super moist. Don’t get me wrong; her version is so good, but it also includes a cup of butter. Not to mention four full eggs, traditional white flour, and a staggering […]

Essential Heirloom Cranberry Beans

Essential Heirloom Cranberry Beans

Cranberry beans are the star of this recipe with their rich, velvety (almost meaty) texture. When cooked, they plump up to around pinto bean size, but with much more flavor. Rancho Gordo is my go-to brand for cranberry beans — an heirloom bean company working […]

Simple Green Smoothie

Simple Green Smoothie

I wondered if this combo was even enough of a “recipe” to put out there in the universe. However, my goal of this blog is to have an honest reflection of me — what I like to eat, and my vegetarian, (mostly!) healthy point of […]

Warm Dijon Rice Salad

Warm Dijon Rice Salad

I know salad is a bit of a stretch, but if potato salad or pasta salad are salads, then we can definitely add this to the salad category. Chock full of broccoli and green beans, vegetables are the highlight here. Additionally, salad is just foods […]

Vegan Banana Pecan Bites

Vegan Banana Pecan Bites

I’ve never been one to go for the breakfast cookie, but that was before I found these banana date drops at our local establishment, Good Earth. Not only are they delicious, but they are portable. I mean eat a yummy treat (or two!) while driving […]

BBQ Chickpea + Vegan Ranch Salad

BBQ Chickpea + Vegan Ranch Salad

Greg and I made a BBQ Chickpea Pizza from Pickles & Honey last week. I had leftover homemade BBQ sauce and extra chickpeas. So, at lunch, I was sitting their thinking of making a salad, and I wanted to give these ingredients new life. And […]

Cilantro Lime Veggie Sushi

Cilantro Lime Veggie Sushi

Sushi. Not traditionally super veggie-friendly. But used correctly can be like a fresh salad perfectly packaged for the on-the-go life. Not to say that tempura sweet potato rolls with teriyaki sauce are not my favorite sushi date night selection, but this option is fresh and […]
