Tu-no Noodle Casserole

I was looking through my foodie apps on my phone to meal plan this week and found this Tu-no Noodle Casserole on my Forks Over Knives app. It’s something I haven’t found in forever, and something I never really craved but it’s a change! Forks Over Knives is a great resource for plant based meals…

Oil Free Teriyaki Noodles with Crispy Tofu

This is one of my staple dinners because it’s easy, healthy, and always delicious. I am always down for a noodle bowl! I made up this oil free teriyaki recipe a while ago and use it all of the time for Asian dishes. It’s the perfect balance of sweet and savory and is great over…

Oil Free Eggplant Parmesan (vegan)

I love how versatile eggplant is and it’s such a great main for any meal. One of my favorite ways to make it is Eggplant Parmesan for an Italian flair and it’s so good. This is a quick and easy recipe to make and it doesn’t require layering or baking a 9×13. I like how…

Vegan Mac n Cheeze

This was a tasty version of vegan mac n cheeze that’s plant based and didn’t include any vegan cheese. I try not to use a lot of vegan meat and cheese replacements because they’re not very healthy. They’re better for you than actual meat and cheese, but they’re still full of oil and things I…

Meal Planning 12.3.18

It’s December!! I’m so excited because it’s my favorite time of the year. Our house is decorated and I’m trying to get into the holiday spirit. I’m hosting our team Christmas party at my house on Friday and I’m making some tasty appetizers to share. While my curry is currently simmering, I’ll fill you in…

Portobello Fajitas

These are a really simple and delicious option for a quick dinner. They’re healthy, full of flavor, and have the same taste of traditional fajitas. I love using portobellos as a meat replacement because they’re hearty and can take on the same flavors and texture. They have protein and are great for you! You just…

Vegan Sushi Donuts

I saw these somewhere online and thought they were so cute! I decided to give them a try and they look like they’d be easier than regular sushi rolls, but I actually think they were a little harder because everything wouldn’t stay on the curved donut or wouldn’t curve to fit like I wanted. They…

Vegan Broccoli Cheezy Rice

Josh has been craving his mom’s broccoli cheddar rice, so I told him I would try to find a veganized version. I asked her for her recipe and then felt a little confused as to how I would veganize it because it had condensed soup, cheddar, and more dairy. I researched how to make vegan…

White Bean and Veggie Soup

It’s FREEZING today and I’m so glad I had this soup to keep me warm for lunch. I made it the other night and love how easy soup is to throw together. You can pretty much add whatever you want inside it and turns out to be tasty and keeps you warm. It’s a cozy…

Creamy Baked Ziti

THIS WAS SOOOO GOOD! Seriously, one of the most delicious things I’ve had and much better than what I remember non-vegan baked ziti was. I got this recipe from Nora Cooks Vegan and I’m so glad I tried it out. It was a higher fat meal than I usually make from the fat from the…

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…

Our Very Vegan Thanksgiving

It’s our 2nd vegan Thanksgiving so this year I have full confidence that we’ll get to enjoy the holiday with some delicious and traditional food, minus the bird. I just spent about 5 hours cooking a feast that we’ll get to enjoy tomorrow, and let’s be real, I just had a pretty hearty sample as…

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…

Simple Chickpea Noodle Soup

I wasn’t feeling great over the weekend and wanted to make something easy on my stomach. This Chickpea Noodle Soup was easy to make and even easier to eat! It tasted so good! I topped it with Violife vegan parmesan and we roasted some pita bread to dunk in. As always, I had some apples…

Meal Planning 11.11.18

First off, I know these aren’t a meal but I made them into one. 🙈 Easy Vegan Rice Crispy treats with dark chocolate chunks were so simple to make, just like the originals but sub with vegan butter and marshmallows from Trader Joe’s for a quick and tasty treat! Will the rain ever end? I…

BBQ Lentil Balls

I made these BBQ Lentil Balls the other night and they were so tasty! They’re savory and hearty and I paired them with roasted potatoes and onions and garlic green beans. They’re protein and healthy carb packed and have minimal fat. I found the easiest way to make lentil based things is to buy lentils…

Broccoli, Chickpea, and Rice Casserole

I found this recipe on Pinterest a while ago and made it last night. It was so easy!! You literally dump everything in a casserole dish and put it in the oven. An hour later you have a tasty meal! I only changed one or two things and it turned out really good for a…

Crispy Hawaiian Tofu Bowl

I’ve really been loving some crispy tofu lately! Rabbitsandwolves is one of my favorite bloggers on Instagram so I knew when she posted a picture of a Hawaiian tofu bowl I wanted to try it asap! She uses jalapeno in hers, but I thought it might be too spicy for my taste so I swapped…

Black Bean Tortilla Soup

I didn’t use to love soups, I didn’t even really like them. I’m not sure why this year I’m all about the soups! I want to try a lot more in the upcoming cold months, so I decided to try this black bean tortilla soup. I basically look at pictures of recipes on sites and…

Meal Planning 11.4.18

This cauliflower curry was DELICIOUS and made by one of the moms in my class! She’s so sweet and has made me food several times and every time I’m so thankful. I cook so much that it’s a luxury to have someone cook for me! It’s always veganized and so tasty and I eat it…
