This is so simple and SO tasty. It's perfect as a pre-made option for a week of breakfast or as something to offer guests who've spent the night. It's only got 5 major ingredients, 4 of which are plants! Not only that, but it's dairy free, gluten free, and vegetarian.
As we begin to make changes to our diet, it's nice to find meals that still scratch our cravings for certain comfort foods. This dish is a veggieFULL option for the pasta and Italian food lovers out there. One of my favorite things about this dish is that I can eat 2-3 times a normal pasta serving and STILL be at only half the calories of a normal pasta dish. It also has 5+ servings of vegetables! How often can we say THAT about our meals?
These healthy cookies are as tasty as they are easy. With only 4 ingredients and 25 minutes of total prep and cook time, they can't be beat! Ryan and I have these regularly. Whether it's for your kids' class, for dinner at a friends, or a group gathering, these are a great, healthy, food sensitive option!
2 large bananas
1 cup of rolled oats
1 tbs of peanut butter (or almond butter for those with allergies)
This is a very special recipe for us, because I tried it the first time with our first EVER grown from a seed vegetable - a giant zucchini! You can see the comparison from just one month of growth!
Some of you may or may not know that Ryan and I have joined a community garden in Compton. We are SO excited about sowing into that city as well as our soil. ;) haha. There have been some really neat testimonies of how that garden has allowed for gang members to find good work, for prostitutes to com...
I thought this up a bit last minute when I was trying to think of something to make with the ingredients that Ryan and I got in our weekly organic produce box. We had corn, tomatoes, and avocado. We weren't doing grains (though we had the corn already and figured it'd just have to pass for the sake of not wasting food!), dairy, or processed foods. We wanted to make sure the ingredients were fresh and tasty for our guests.
SOOoo, I decided to try a cowboy caviar and put it in sweet potatoes. It s...
This delightful treat has been a MAJOR win for us as we've been working on eliminating sugar, grains, and baked goods for this month. Everything in it is HEALTHY and beneficial to your body... and it's quite delicious.
To be clear, this dessert is no sugar added, low glycemic, gluten free, and macro balanced with protein, fiber, and healthy fats.
Not to mention, it literally takes 10 minutes of effort.
Let's talk for a minute here about the health benefits of this tasty dessert. Chia...
I only have one sibling, my sister Angela. She's great. She was my built in best friend and playmate all growing up. We always wanted a brother, though. Since I've been married to my incredible husband, though, we both ended up with at least one brother (she got two, obviously)!
So what does this have to do with this peach cobbler? Well, this just so happens to be my gift to Brother Dave! My sister and I both refer to him as "Brother Dave" because, well, we just like to make it reall...
This actually wasn't a meal I planned to do a blog about, but it turned out so well, I felt I had to share!
I really wanted to try and use up all the leftover veggies and herbs I'd got for certain meals this week. I didn't think I had a consistent theme I could pull together. Then I saw a few posts about these "Buddha bowls" or "Hippy bowls". They looked super tasty. I looked up what's in them, and it's usually just a random combination of whole grains, sometimes beans, veggies, and maybe...
This was super tasty. Major comfort food right here. Now, I wouldn't call this "healthy" per se. BUT it definitely is a great healthier alternative to the way enchiladas are usually prepared. If you don't want to go crazy on your cheat day, this is your meal! It does not disappoint or leave you feeling like you missed out. Doesn't it look beautiful? haha.
It's gluten free, and has a good amount of veggies in there. ;) What's a dish without veggies?! It's also really easy to make. It only takes...
