This is a delicious new recipe I created over the holiday break! Gluten-free and full of protein and fiber to keep you full for hours. Enjoy!
This tempeh was so delicious! After returning from Vietnam, I had a renewed love for Bok Choy. This vegetable is chock-full of Vitamin K, vitamin A, and vitamin C, as well as antioxidants and fiber! I designed this recipe as a high protein plant-based savory meal. The tempeh adds delectable crunch while the bell peppers add sweetness. Enjoy my recipe!
Lentil soup is a quintessential recipe in a Greek household. It's simple to make and chockfull of nutrients. Lentils are a great source of iron, the most common mineral deficiency in the world. Lentils are also a great source of vegetarian protein and their high fiber content makes them super filling. I choose to cook with truRoots organic sprouted lentils because they are easier to digest and cook much faster! Here's my recipe. It's super simple, yet tasty and makes for great leftovers throughout the week especially if you're too busy to pack a lunch for work. Enjoy!
I have been searching for the perfect protein pancake recipe for so long that isn't too sweet, but also isn't too oily, and can come out fluffy! After trying to look for different recipes online, I was never satisfied with the ratios and always ended up making pancakes that were too dense or too chocolatey. I finally tweaked my recipe and have found something that works well! I also have included some tips for making "pretty" (circular) pancakes, because sometimes it can be hard when working with gluten-free batter. Enjoy!
This breakfast muesli is great after a workout and protein-filled! I got inspired to make it after returning from Australia where this is a standard breakfast option. For those of you who don't know what muesli is, it's basically soaked (usually the night before) Raw oats eaten cold with a variety of toppings. It's great for someone on the go and also during hot summers.
This is a very simple and quick recipe I tweaked from this one. It makes a great lunch or dinner and can be a whole meal for a vegan or vegetarian or a side dish for omnivores. Below is what you need and how to make it! It's super yummy and took me 20 minutes including the process of chopping and making the pasta! Fast, healthy, delicious-- I aim for this in each of my recipes.
Merry Christmas to everyone who celebrates! I decided to follow last year's gift and make my mother a delicious, semi-healthy cake for her birthday today. Chocolate, of course, because that is her absolute favorite! I tweaked the recipe a bit from last year and I think it is much better, thicker and better consistency. Hope you enjoy the recipe for any birthday or event and suits many different dietary needs! Yay for dessert!
This is one of my favorite recipes from a great restaurant in my area named Francesca's (Italian food, of course). For years I have been dying to create a healthier version of this recipe for my family and after some tweaking from last week, I came pretty close to perfecting it this time around! This recipe is great as a side dish or main dish depending on your dietary preferences. So cook up and enjoy!
The weather is getting colder and I have been wanting chili for some time now! I figured that "food friday" last night was the perfect time to make it since I had so much energy. Let me warn you, my chili is spicy!! If you don't like it hot, just take out some of the peppers below, but in my opinion, the spice makes the dish. Oh, and this recipe is for vegans as well, unless you want to put sour cream on top. Here's a hearty, vegetable-filled dinner that even the meat lovers in my family enjoyed.
