Two Recipes you MUST Try!

I love when you find a recipe that is SO good, it inspires you to take it to the next level. Whether it’s by adding other ingredients or using the recipe to turn it into a new creation. The past couple of months, I have found two recipes that have done just that. Not only…

RECIPE: Simple Cheezy Sauce

Happy Friday! It’s been a whirlwind these last few weeks with starting speech therapy for Willow, spending some time at the coast and then we had a close friend stay with us a bit, so this post was a long time overdue. Can’t believe summer is just about over….but that means fall will be here and…

RECIPE: Maple Crunch Granola {Oil-Free}

We LOVE granola, but it’s a struggle to find one we can eat without spending an arm and a leg.  Making your own not only saves you money, but you can also easily change up the flavor and texture. This time around, I was on a mission to create one that was not only full of flavor,…

RECIPE: Cinnamon Roasted Chickpeas

One of my favorite snacks would have to be roasted chickpeas because the flavor combinations are endless, they’re packed with protein, and are so easy to make. We’ve made them spicy, sweet, and “cheezy” – but this might be my favorite one yet. These are great on their own or with some banana nice cream or yogurt.…

RECIPE: Homemade Refried Beans

Our absolute favorite night of the week is Taco Tuesday! It’s become a little tradition of ours this past year to create some form of vegan tacos each week – and they usually involve refried beans. We used to take the way of convenience and just buy them already made, but oh, my goodness! There…

RECIPE: Protein Explosion Bites {no-bake}

Chocolate AND peanut butter is, by far, my favorite flavor combination – in all forms – smoothies, cookies, ice cream, granola, you name it! When done in a healthier way, it makes it just that much more enjoyable! Last night I whipped up these no-bake goodies and they turned out even better than expected. The…

Recipe: Bliss Bowl

Salads are usually our favorite way to load up on tons of fresh veggies, but today’s weather had me craving more of a comfort food – something hearty and warm. Before I eliminated soy from my diet, going to Café Yumm was a great, quick place to grab a meal – their Yumm Bowls were to die…

Recipe: Berry Protein Smoothie & Homemade Granola

We start every morning off with a superfood smoothie – it’s a great way to sneak in a whole bunch nutrient rich foods, especially when you’ve got a toddler. Our kiddo is on a green strike – she refuses all things green, but hidden in a smoothie, she’ll suck it down! Silly girl, I hope…

RECIPE: Creamy Orange-Tahini Dressing

Salads are probably my favorite thing to eat and the best part about them is the endless variations.  Adding different toppings changes the whole flavor – sliced granny smith apples, hazelnuts, red pepper, and more.  I love finding and creating new salad dressings….couldn’t tell you the last time I even purchased an already made dressing. …
