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…

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…

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…

Vegan Cinnamon Sugar Donuts

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…

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….

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…

Hoisin Lime Noodle Bowl

Nothing says Friday to me more than sweatpants and a bowl of noodles. Especially in this gloomy weather! #tiredteacherlife yes I know I’m only 28, but by Friday I feel 78. I saw Bosh.tv making a noodle bowl with a Hoisin sauce and decided to make one as well and just make the sauce up…

Easy Chickpea Curry

Well it’s a day that Josh is working late, so curry night for me! It’s been a wild week… and it’s not even Halloween at school yet. I think I’m getting a cold and currently sitting with a box of tissues in my lap because my nose is a faucet. What better night to make…

Vegan Vegetable Pot Roast

What says “fall” more than a pot roast? Am I right? I haven’t had one in forever… let alone since becoming vegan so I thought I would try to make a veggie based one in my beautiful turquoise Le Creuset beauty! I’ve always loved the veggies in a roast, so I thought it could work….
