Cranberry Banana Muffins

I felt like baking again this morning, as most weekend mornings. I looked around the kitchen to see what I had and I found some brown bananas, Craisins, and my usual baking ingredients. I wanted to come up with some tasty muffins and I also used some lemon juice. The lemon juice didn’t really come…

Vegan Blueberry Pancakes

These were so delicious! Josh’s parents spent the night with us last night and we slept in because it’s rainy. We had a slow morning and I made these blueberry pancakes. I looked up a recipe on Pinterest and it was perfect. All I did was use 2 cups of all purpose flour and I…

Blueberry Lemon Oatmeal

Blueberry Lemon Oatmeal I’m always looking for a way to get oatmeal into my diet, so this morning I decided to try something new! I used what I had to make this blueberry lemon oatmeal and it was so good I finished my bowl! It tasted like a tasty blueberry lemon muffin. I added a…

Meal Planning 11.25.18

To say I stuffed myself to the brim on Thanksgiving and the day after would be an understatement, yet I still want another piece of pie since I was too full to have it last night! That means it’s time to get back in a healthy eating routine before Christmas parties and goodies arrive! Yesterday…

Meal Planning for the week of Thanksgiving!

It’s Thanksgiving week! Time for family, food, and beautiful fall weather. Thanksgiving has always been big in our family. I’m from a huge family (my mom is one of six) and when I was little we used to go to my grandparent’s house with my grandma’s siblings as well so it was a big, fun…

Vegan French Toast

Frigid, fire, football, French toast, and food memories! My grandpa always made the grandchildren French toast when we were over for breakfast and now it’s become a food memory just like everything else he used to make. Now when I make those things, I’m basically crying by the time I sit down to eat it….

Meal Planning 10.28.18

I’ve been meaning to try this Miyoko’s Un-Lox Your Dreams vegan cream cheese since I spotted it in Trader Joe’s a few weeks ago so when trying to come up with an appetizer for Saturday football games, I thought it was my time to try it out! For the game I sliced a ciabatta baguette…

Apple Pie Oatmeal

Apple cinnamon everything right now! I always try to make up new ways to make oatmeal more interesting because I use to HATE it. I couldn’t stand the mushiness, the bland taste, and it just tasted like goop, especially when I made it from scratch instead of the sugary packets. Now I realized that if…

Cinnamon Apple Banana Oat Muffins

I woke up this morning with fall crispness in the air and was inspired to whip up some fall baking goodies! I’ve been loving using oatmeal flour instead of regular flour in my baked goods and I’ve been experimenting with getting vegan things to rise. I had some apples with spots on them and decided…

Meal Planning 9.30.18

Well after a week in the beach and the mountains, we’re relaxed and thankful for a nice week of vacation together. Josh and I went down to Blue Mountain beach and even though it rained most of our trip we loved getting a massage, playing Yahtzee, and hanging out together which doesn’t happen much since…

Meal Planning 9.9.18

By the time Saturday rolls around, our fridge is pretty empty and it’s time for another Trader Joe’s run. I wanted to find something to make a yummy hot breakfast (since every work day I have fruit for breakfast lately) and the only thing I could find was some quick oats and some fruit. I…

Apple Spice Pancakes and Meal Plans 8.19.18

I woke up this morning wanting to make something extra yummy for breakfast. I’ve been having a bowl of watermelon for breakfast lately, so a stack of fluffy pancakes sounded like a treat! I’m still working on my vegan baked goods (my banana bread from yesterday was a total FAIL) so I thought pancakes are…

Vegans in Vegas, baby!

This past weekend we were in Las Vegas for my best friend’s wedding and I was really excited for more vegan options available for us to have. I did some research and asked others what restaurants were favorites, but unfortunately most of them ended up being off the main strip so we didn’t want to…

Tofu and Veggie Scramble and Breakfast Potatoes

“Is that scrambled eggs?!” you ask. No! Can you believe that it’s crumbed tofu and it mimics the texture of scrambled eggs? It’s true, try and see! This is a meal that I usually don’t think to make on weekends when I actually have time, so it’s a great breakfast for dinner meal. Who doesn’t…

Atlantis Veg-antures

As still a semi-new vegan, travel is something I get a little anxious about food-wise. Atlantis has an option to call the chef’s office 2 weeks ahead of time to let them know of any dietary needs but I figured vegan is something that is getting common enough that they can make things work and…

Maple Dijon Buddha Bowl

Want to get all of your veggies in? This is the meal for you! I was in the mood for roasted Brussel sprouts because we haven’t had them in a while, so I wanted to fit them in a meal this week. A buddha bowl is a great way to fit in any veggies you…

Beach Meal Planning for HCLF

Vacation time! It’s the first vacation in our amazing year of vacations that we have planned and we’re going down to the beach near Seaside, FL. We’re so ready for a week of sun and relaxation in one of our favorite places. We love going down in the winter when it’s not so crowded and…

All That, For How Much???

Happy sunny Sunday everyone! I made some simple recipes today, Josh was up sick most of the night so I was cleaning the house today and cooking meals for myself. I decided it was a good night for soup to help the sick! It was pretty much all he ate today and I hope it…

1st Day High Carb, Low Fat Vegan

Today I started my high carb, low fat vegan experiment. I weighed myself this morning for the first time since August and was semi- relieved to see I’ve gained 5 pounds because I was thinking it was more. I spent most of my morning watching High Carb Hannah videos and writing down meal ideas and…
