    Oat + Fruit Bowl

    I love breakfast foods like waffles and omelets. But most days call for something quicker, and we’ve all seen the unfortunate “fast” breakfast options out there. When prepping for my wedding back in 2016, I tried to find a daily breakfast recipe that was fast, healthy, and kept my hunger at bay until lunch. Keeping me full was a big requirement because I’m basically a child and cannot function when hungry. After looking at a bunch of different recipes, I came up with this oat + fruit bowl that I ate most mornings. Not only did it curb mid-morning snacking and help me lean up a bit, but it kept…

It is truly the best vegetarian tikka masala I’ve ever made myself. I served it at a family get-together last weekend and had two requests for the recipe. Those requests came from non-vegetarian family members. Crockpot meals are amazing when you are cooking for lots of people. I am totally that person who is still cooking when…

    Sweet Potato Taco Filling

    There’s nothing quite like Taco Tuesday that tempts me to eat meat. Why? Because most restaurants’ vegetarian option is for tacos is bland ol’ rice and beans that is an option by default of availability. Because plant-based diets are becoming more common, I’m slowly seeing more options like jackfruit, tofu, and tempeh around town. Sadly, when cooking for yourself, tofu and tempeh run the risk of turning out just as bland as rice and beans. And jackfruit? Delicious, but harder to come buy and a real workout to prepare if you don’t buy it already shredded. This is where the sweet potatoes come in. They’re easy to find, easy to…
