Banana Oat Bread

Who doesn’t love a good banana bread?! While there are so many different versions of banana bread out there (Martha Stewarts will always remain a childhood favorite) they all pretty much have a similar concept: bread made from bananas. Some like to add walnuts, others like to add chocolate chips… I like to add OATS!Continue reading “Banana Oat Bread”

No Bake Half & Half Dough Balls

I don’t know about you, but I don’t always want to bake my desserts. When I am able to whip up something quick and sweet without the process of baking, I do! The best thing about making frozen or cold desserts is that you only have to worry about the prep time. Often when weContinue reading “No Bake Half & Half Dough Balls”

Stuffed Peaches

There is nothing better than spring & summer peaches. They are so refreshing on a summer day. One of the things that I picture when I think of summer is ripe and juicy peaches.

Gluten Free Crackers

Lets face it, buying healthier versions of old school favorites can be downright expensive. I don’t know if you feel the same way, but it seems like the cleaner the ingredients, the more they cost. Plus they’re always packed in plastic which is terrible for the environment. Homemade tastes better, and is more eco-friendly. TheseContinue reading “Gluten Free Crackers”

Strawberry Poptarts

I used to live for poptarts. Nothing is better then biting into that warm gooey fruity center. Of course the original ones are packed with artificial ingredients and sugars so I decided to create a clean version. And by clean I mean plant based, gluten free, grain free and made with real fruit (not thatContinue reading “Strawberry Poptarts”

Chipotle Chicken-less Nuggets

When I first took on a vegetarian lifestyle, it was tough. I think it is still tough, especially if you are starting after so many years of eating meat. Even if you are cutting down on your meat take, finding healthy and clean meat alternatives is tough. There are SO many plant based options outContinue reading “Chipotle Chicken-less Nuggets”

Southwest Style Plant-Based Scramble

Breakfast was always one of my favorite meals. I LOVE eggs. Especially omelette style. But at some point (probably during my pescatarian paleo adventure) eggs started making me feel, well, not so great. So I tried doing just shakes and smoothies, but eventually it gets old. So I have recently started making tofu scrambles whichContinue reading “Southwest Style Plant-Based Scramble”
