Cheesy Farro Bake with Mushrooms, Tomatoes & Shallots

Cheesy Farro Bake with Mushrooms, Tomatoes and Shallots

Have you ever been cruising along in life thinking everything was generally fine yet experiencing a nagging edginess as if your happy, go-lucky mojo had gone awry? Have you ever retroactively identified that you were stressed once the stressor was removed? This might sound like the makings of a snazzy infomercial for a magical stress-relieving pill; however, I promise you it's not. Rather, it's a realization I had yesterday night. Way back in early September, I mentioned that our kitchen … [Read more...]

Pumpkin & Cranberry Granola Bars

Pumpkin and Cranberry Granola Bars

Sweet. Chewy. Spiced. Pumpkin-y. Seeded. Addictive. De.li.cious. These Pumpkin & Cranberry Granola Bars have a whole lot of wonder about them, and I've fallen for them bite after spice-filled bite. To be honest, I initially thought this recipe was a flop. Not because of flavor, but because the pumpkin purée created a softer granola bar, and I had been hoping for a firmer, denser bar. Well, it appears that the granola bar's and my wires were crossed, because a … [Read more...]

Raw Apple-Cinnamon & Chia Breakfast Bowl

Raw Apple-Cinnamon Chia Breakfast Bowl

What do you get when you combine apples, dates, cinnamon, nutmeg, and chia seeds? A big bowl of breakfast wonder. While making this apple pie a few weeks back, I fell head-over-heels for the raw apple filling. It's cinnamony, sweetened with dates, and the apples maintain their crispness in the most perfect way. Not too long after posting that recipe, I came up with a way to repurpose the pie filling as the focal point in this delicious breakfast bowl. Take a gander... Although … [Read more...]

Sweet Potato Pizza Crust | Vegan & Gluten-Free

Sweet Potato Pizza Crust

Sweet potato, sweet potahto. No matter your choice of pronunciation, sweet potatoes speak our bodies' health language. They're rich in Vitamins A, C, and B6, and packed with fiber, manganese, and potassium. Plus, they're absolutely delicious and rock that vivacious orange hue year-round. And who doesn't get down with vitamin-rich vivaciousness? Over the last few years, the trend in pizza making has been to use veggies (e.g., cauliflower) and other unexpected ingredients (e.g., quinoa) as the … [Read more...]

Giant Blueberry Skillet Pancake | Vegan & Gluten-Free

Giant Blueberry Skillet Pancake

I love pancakes, but I don't make them too often simply because they require quite a bit of time standing over the stove. Pour. Wait. Flip. Wait. Repeat. Pour. Wait. Flip. Wait. Repeat. A few weekends ago, Dan and I were both craving sweet blueberry pancakes, so I figured I'd attempt to bake one gigantic pancake in our cast iron skillet in hopes of allowing for more leisurely coffee drinking time and less kitchen time. Well, this blueberry pancake recipe is easy … [Read more...]

Chocolate-Pumpkin Overnight Oats

Chocolate-Pumpkin Overnight Oats

I'm currently on an undeniable overnight oats kick, just as I was when I posted this recipe. Dan can confirm that when I find something I love to eat, I will eat it nearly every day for an extended period of time. Take zucchini noodles, for example. If you were to ask Dan how often I ate big bowls of zucchini noodles this past August, he would probably tell you that I ate them almost every night. And he would be correct. I'm a repeat-meal offender, what can I say? Overnight oats are the … [Read more...]

Comforting & Cozy Fall Power Bowl

DSC_8440

Open up your eyes and hearts to a warm bowl of deliciously healthy comfort food. When the fall gets chilly, my food gets cozy. Not just cozy though, powerfully cozy. Powerfully cozy as in packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants to provide a kick of energy and a nudge of sass. If you're wondering where the sass is coming from, I've got my bets set on that ruby-hued tomato jam. I've heard she's a tad fiery. This bowl of vegetable goodness is simple and incredibly satisfying, … [Read more...]

Raw Vegan Apple Pie with Cinnamon-Pecan Streusel

Raw Vegan Apple Pie Cinnamon-Pecan Streusel

Sometimes, there is nothing better than a slice of pie. To be exact: there is nothing better than a crumbly, cinnamon-spiced, sweet, layered, streusel-sprinkled piece of apple pie. Why? Because it tastes like heaven and looks like this... And who doesn't want to sink their fork into that slab of deliciousness? I've mentioned it before, but sometimes recipe ideas pop into my mind at the strangest of times. Sometimes while in yoga poses, other times while drying my hair in the … [Read more...]

Blueberry & Mango Immune-Boosting Smoothie

Blueberry and Mango Immune-Boosting Smoothie

Yes, you're right. This smoothie definitely looks more like summer than fall, but hear me out for a minute. Fall marks that time of year when germs start flying around, and if we don't make an active attempt to keep ourselves healthy with exercise, plenty of rest, and an abundance of vibrant foods, we're more likely to fall prey to a case of of the sneezies. Leaning on Vitamin C is a reliable approach to keeping our immune systems strong, and this smoothie is packed with it. Seriously. … [Read more...]

Chili-Garlic Cauliflower Fried “Rice”

Chili Garlic Cauliflower Fried Rice

I've been on a bit of a chili-garlic kick lately. I blame these tasty noodles for initiating the craze, and I'm going to blame this no-words-delicious cauliflower "rice" for my spiral into chili oblivion. There seems to be no way out of my obsession, and I'm coming to terms with this fact. Call me crazy, but I like a little spice in my life. And when spice meets warm, garlicky cauliflower rice? It's over. And by "over" I mean there is no stopping my spoon-to-bowl movements until there is but … [Read more...]
