I know you have been there….whether you are new to a plant-based lifestyle or have been a vegan for years, at some point you have had to look into the face of a friend who just simply can’t understand why you can’t just be a team player and eat meat like “everyone else”. In fact, I bet if you are honest before you made the switch, veganism was akin to someone being from another planet.  I know it was for me!  I asked all of the silly...

Creamy Vegan Pesto

This recipe is slightly different than my No Oil Spicy Vegan Pesto.It has a creamy texture that I find excellent for pasta.  Traditional pesto is loaded with oil.  For this recipe I use avocado and dare I say it is fantastic!  This healthy recipe is loaded with fiber and will leave you with one happy satisfied tummy.  It calls for nutritional yeast and this is a must!  For those unfamiliar with it, nutritional yeast is an amazing...

These tasty little rustic vegan brownies are also gluten and sugar free! As I have told you before friends, my family is loaded with vegans and vegetarians.  What makes dessert tough is my mom is also sensitive to gluten.  I say sensitive rather than allergic because she is known to cheat.  Sorry Mom!  I made these in muffin tins so I could freeze them for those chocolate cravings that hit ya out of nowhere.  This recipe is so easy...

He will eat bowl after bowl. As he is a meat eater I top his with bacon bits.  The base is Empire Vegan Potato Leek soup.  I buy it at Sprouts but you can...

Lately it seems when my family gets together there are more vegans and vegetarians than meat eaters.  This weekend I wanted to cook up a Mexican Fiesta for the gang and decided to make a huge batch of jackfruit tacos. If you don’t know about the wonder that is jackfruit, check out my other posts HERE.  It makes a fabulous substitute for chicken, pork, beef and even tuna! Extremely low in calories it is my favorite meat...

I absolutely love a green goddess salad dressing.  I adapted many a favorite recipe to make it as healthy and delicious as possible. This one has no oil and is vegan.  My goal is to try and make at least 50% of my meals raw.  When we cook our food we lose nutrients.  In fact we lose loads of nutrients!  While I can’t adapt to a completely raw diet, I can work with 50%.  For me, this means oodles of salad! There are some great...
