Crispy Tofu Tacos

These tacos were amazing! You use crumbled tofu that’s seasoned in taco spices and bake it until it’s brown and crispy then use it as taco filling, yum! I also used leftover brown rice and made Mexican rice and then topped with our favorite toppings. I always put the corn tortillas in my toaster oven…

Grilling Feast!

For Memorial Day this year we decided to grill out at the beach with family and came up with a menu. We made burgers, regular and beyond meat, BBQ tofu, Dilly Tofu Potato Salad, BBQ veggie kabobs, and leftover bean salad. It was so much food and we still have loads leftover, but it was…

Creamy Marsala Baked Gnocchi

This tasty gnocchi is covered in a creamy Marsala type sauce with kale and baked in a casserole dish until bubbly, so what could be wrong? This was actually a mistake which turned out. I had my bestie test it and she’s the one who said it reminded her of a Marsala sauce, and she’s…

Super Bowl Meal Planning

Before I indulge in all of the finger foods I’m planning on making today, I started the day off right with a delicious nice cream bowl. This has been my favorite kind because it gets so fluffy and light. I’m not sure if it’s from the packet of JuicePlus powder or the combination of fruit…

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…

Minestrone Soup

Cauliflower Gnocchi with Veggies in Lemon Garlic Sauce

Everyone loves this cauliflower Gnocchi from Trader Joe’s and I think it was even featured on the Today Show the other day. I bought a bag in the frozen section of Trader Joe’s during my weekly shopping trip and decided to mix it with some veggies and make a lemon garlic sauce. I wanted to…

Mexican Stuffed Bell Peppers

Guess what? Before going vegan I was never a fan of peppers, corn, beans, or really even rice. My how your taste buds can change! I’m glad they did because all of those things came together to make these tasty stuffed peppers and it added something new that I’ve never made before to my repertoire….

Meal Planning for Next Week

This weather in Georgia has been crazy! I’ve had the last 3 days off for SNOW DAYS and we only got about an inch, but yesterday was kind of icy. I won’t complain! I took the time to research a ton about the HCLF plant based diet and I had plenty of time to meal…
