Stuffed Shells with Tofu Ricotta, Mushrooms, and Spinach

I haven’t made stuffed shells in years so why not make a vegan version? I just used my usual tofu ricotta recipe and pulsed it with some cooked mushrooms and spinach for a yummy filling. The filling it’s herby, creamy, and reminds you of the real thing It almost tasted like spinach dip! These were…

BBQ Hoisin Pulled Portobello Sandwiches

Flavor bomb! I follow @erinireland on Instagram and she made a video of making these bad boys and I knew it was a must try! She got the recipe from @bosh.tv and I started following them as well because their recipes all look delicious. They make short little recipe videos that leave you drooling and…

Homemade Vegan Sushi

Veggie sushi is one of our top favorites to have regularly because we both love it! I’ve posted a few times about my favorite rolls to make at home because it’s not as hard as you think and SO much cheaper than going out for you weekly fix. I’m going to tell you exactly what…

Speedy Wonton & Mushroom Soup

This week I’ve been feeling crummy with either a cold or allergies and I’ve just been craving some soup despite the heat. I LOVE these Thai Vegetable Gyozas from Trader Joe’s so when my sister mentioned she used them in soup when she was sick, I had to give it a try. I wanted to…

Eating Vegan in Venice

We arrived in Venice and the first thing we needed after an overnight plane ride (that luckily had a vegan option of lentils, quinoa, and salad to start then some kind of beet and kale mixture over brown rice) we were ready for our first Italian meal. We left the hotel and wandered to a…

Let’s Get Physical (exams)

Last year I got a physical right before going vegan and everything was normal, which is good, but I wanted to see how much better it could be. I was doing high-intensity workouts almost 6 days a week for 6 months before that physical and haven’t done much of that this year. I usually get…

BBQ Jackfruit Sliders

Jackfruit: a fruit that mimics pulled pork. Intriguing! I’ve been wanting to try to make jackfruit for a while now, but it’s been intimidating me. I’ve never cooked with jackfruit, and I just learned what it was this year so where to even start? I’ve been steering clear of the mock meats since cutting out…

Anniversary Japanese Feast

It was Josh and I’s 2nd anniversary on April 2nd so we celebrated the only way we know how- with food. We’re off to Atlantis this week so instead of going out to dinner to celebrate, we decided to stay in and have some of our favorites. This used to be our staple menu when…

Stuffed Baked Potatoes

I’ve been wanting to make this simple meal for a while and I kept putting it off, and turns out it’s a keeper. It’s minimal ingredients, only requires a few minutes of prep, and it’s really filling. I couldn’t even finish this potato! You can make the cheesy sauce while the potatoes are baking and…

Spaghetti and Chickpea Balls

If you haven’t actually made any of the recipes from my blog yet, now is the time to start! You know you’ve done it right when your husband giggles like a schoolgirl after his first bite and requests this as a weekly meal! I found this recipe on Pinterest and then adjusted it for what…

Meal planning 3.10.18

This peanut butter banana sprouted grain toast was a great way to start my Saturday! I use powdered peanut butter because it’s about half of the fat and it still tastes good. This breakfast keeps you full and I’m ready to go wedding dress shopping with my cousin today and then have a fun night…

Simple Spaghetti Pomodoro

I invited a friend over for spaghetti and the Bachelor finale last night and at least I stayed awake for the spaghetti. I used a recipe from Michael on The Chew and I’m always thrilled when they make something almost vegan that I can try now. This is a simple and quick pomodoro sauce that…

Vegan Grilled Cheese

Yes, vegans can still have grilled cheese! It’s my first grilled cheese in a long time and it was my first vegan one ever, and let me tell you it was just as I remembered! It was delicious! After a crazy morning of running Christmas errands, this was just what I needed to go along…

Beyond Meat Burgers

When you’re vegan and you crave the burger that you used to know, this is the one for you. Beyond Meat makes these plant based burgers that have 20 grams of protein and taste just like the real thing. They’re in the refrigerated part of your grocery store, ours are in the healthy section (I…

Snow Day Meal Planning

Georgia got SNOW! Not just, a centimeter like usual, but we got 5-6 inches in my backyard. This, of course, caused chaos trying to get kids home from school but once we all got home we got to watch inches of snowfall and now it looks like a winter wonderland. Luckily we live about 2…

Weekly Dinner Planning

Meal planning is something I usually look forward to every weekend. I curl up on the couch with my huge mug of tea and look for recipes that I want to cook that week, then make my grocery list accordingly. I might decide to switch things up based on our taste, but I’ve never been…

Our First Turkeyless Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving… the holiday celebrating togetherness, thankfulness, and gorging yourself with tons of  FOOD. It’s everywhere! Turkey, ham, mashed potatoes, stuffing, cranberry sauce, peas, gravy, etc., etc. and very little of that makes the vegan cut. This has been what we’ve eaten every year on Thanksgiving for my entire life. SInce we started this veganish diet…

The Beginning of the End for Meat

It all started with What the Health… that’s how going vegan started for quite a few people I’ve heard. I know it might not be 100% factual and it’s one documentary, but it was enough for me to be cleaning out every animal based product under our roof before the credits were done rolling. I…
