Chai Chia Pudding for Breakfast

DSC_0162

This is our new go to breakfast. Everyone agrees it’s a fav! We all agree that it tastes great, but I also love how healthy and filling it is. I also like the fact that I can make it the night before and just blend it in the morning for… Read More

Dr. Fuhrman’s Prenatal Vitamins

DSC_0169

I’m a huge fan of Dr. Fuhrman’s books (under the Health tab in My Favorites) and now of his supplements. The whole issue of supplements can be so confusing. Do you need them? Don’t you? You need folate. No, wait, it’s bad for you. There’s a lot of conflicting research out… Read More

Just Banana muffins contain no salt, no sugar, no oil, and no flour! The recipe comes from Forks Over Knives, and if you’re not familiar, you need to check out their website. Forks Over Knives is one of the best documentaries I’ve seen. Click here to see the full post… Read More

Black Rice Salad

DSC_0142

Black rice is one of my new favorite foods. Why I didn’t try it before, I’m not sure, but I’ve recently been once again inspired by Dr. Joel Fuhrman, and I tried it upon his recommendation. CNN touted that “Black Rice is the new Brown”, and I agree. They also… Read More

Vegetable Pot Pie

DSC_0174

I guess I’m hanging on to winter comfort foods a little lately, but if it would just stop snowing I could move on! I’m actually happy though because these pot pies, and the pasties from my last post, are now two of my favorite recipes, and have made it into… Read More

Vegetarian Cornish Pasties

DSC_0165

This recipe is outstanding! It satisfies even the most scrutinizing meat lovers, and is very kid friendly. They are easy to freeze and great for school lunches. This would be a great veggie substitute on holidays like Thanksgiving, Christmas, or Easter. Being as pasties are an Irish fav, they are… Read More

Homemade Hemp Milk

DSC_0160

I use hemp milk pretty much every day. I put it in pancakes, waffles, smoothies, and in my cereal on those rare occasions when I eat cereal. I was buying it at Whole Foods, and it always bothered me how much sugar there was in it, with little protein. Then… Read More

French White Bean and Cabbage Soup

DSC_0144

This recipe is one of my favorites from Fresh from the Vegetarian Slow Cooker. If you read my blog, you know I’m a fan of the slow cooker. Slow cookers are a great way to make healthy meals with only a few minutes of prep. My kids almost always like… Read More

Gingerbread Muffins/Loaves

DSC_0153

The Happy Herbivore has been the source of many of my favorite recipes, but it’s been a while since I’ve browsed it’s pages. “Happy” I did because I found these healthy snacks. The recipe is for mini-loaves, but my kids prefer superhero, and Star Wars anything so I made muffins.… Read More

Vegan Sugar Cookie Recipe

DSC_0158

Sugar cookies for Valentine’s Day are mandatory and luckily they are one of the easiest desserts to veganize! The only non-vegan ingredient in most sugar cookie recipes is the egg, and with so many great egg replacers it’s not at all a big deal. I like Ener-G, but feel free… Read More

Dairy-Free Pumpkin Pie Recipe

DSC_0151

Given the fact that this recipe contains 2 eggs, it’s not vegan, but it is dairy-free, and delicious. More and more people are keeping their own hens so they can eat eggs, knowing that they are truly cruelty-free, and they are looking for recipes that are mostly vegan, but they… Read More

Placenta Encapsulation

DSC_0214_2

I haven’t written a post in a while because I’ve been busy with this little guy. Ben was born a little over three weeks ago, and he’s been nothing but sweet and wonderful! Over the next few weeks I’ll do some posts on various pregnancy/baby related issues, including vaccines, birth… Read More

Homemade Candy Bars

DSC_0205

The kids love to watch Unwrapped. A television program where they show how different kinds of “food” is made. Mostly processed foods, like candy bars. The majority of what we see they want, so I’m stuck with the task of finding recipes that are close to what we see since… Read More

Carrot Miso Soup Recipe

Here is another great recipe from the Smitten Kitchen. You may have noticed that I tend to stick with a theme for a few posts then move on, and currently I’m exploring the Smitten Kitchen and bringing to you the recipes I like the most, and that are the easiest… Read More

French Onion Soup Recipe

Onions

First of all, let me say that I did try to photograph the actual soup, but something got lost in translation. The pictures were not doing this amazing soup justice so I opted for a nice onion photo instead. If anyone makes this soup and wants to email me a… Read More

The Pregnancy Project – Tracy Anderson

tracyandersonpreg

Tracy Anderson’s Pregnancy Project DVD series is making me so happy! Being pregnant is a miracle, and a joy of course, but it’s extremely taxing on our bodies.  Keeping physically fit is so important right now for our minds, our spirits, the health of the baby, making labor and delivery… Read More

Vegetarian Thanksgiving Entree

DSC_0100

People think being vegan/vegetarian on Thanksgiving is difficult, but it’s actually one of my favorite “food” holidays. Most of the sides are vegetarian (i.e. cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes – with non-dairy butter, green beans, stuffing). The challenging part is the entree. Especially if you’re hosting and want to make sure… Read More

Vegan Caprese Salad

DSC_0108

This is my current favorite snack! Organic avocados and tomatoes are really easy to find this time of year, and this is my favorite way to enjoy them (actually it’s a tossup between this salad and fresh guac and salsa). This is an extremely antioxidant rich salad, with fiber and healthy fats.… Read More

Rustic Vegan Armagnac-Apple Pie Recipe

DSC_0097

Vegetarian Times always has great recipes, and this one does not disappoint! I just swapped out the all-purpose flour for almond flour, or you can use a gluten-free flour mix. It was easy to make even though the list of ingredients is pretty extensive. It honestly is not a lot… Read More

Homemade Fig Newtons!

DSC_0136

I’m sure it’s obvious that I don’t buy a lot of pre-packaged food, but Fig Newtons are one of the few things I occasionally buy. I get Newman’s Organics (a brand I’m a fan of), but in order to stay “fresh” on the shelves of stores, even organic brands have… Read More
