Simple Falafel

Another gift that I got over the holidays was a little food chopper/processor. The first thing I made with it was falafel. I have never been able to make them before because I didn’t have the right equipment, but I was excited to make them now. I found this recipe by minimalist baker (http://minimalistbaker.com/easy-vegan-falafel) and…

Spiralized Zucchini Salad

I got a little spiralizer for the holidays and I was so excited to use it. It would’ve been more useful when I was doing my raw diet a few weeks ago, but I’m happy to have it now. I made this simple zucchini salad with an asian inspired dressing. There is soy sauce, sesame…

Peanut Tofu with Bok Choy and Fresh Springrolls

I kinda had a peanut theme to tonight’s dinner – I love peanuts. For the tofu, I pressed it for like an hour and baked it in the oven for about 25 minutes. I wanted to get the cubes nice and firm. After they were cooked, I added them to my pot with the sautéed…

Pasta with Sausage and Veggies

Tonight’s dinner was super simple, one pot dish. It took about 40 minutes start to finish, including boiling the pot of water. First I got the water boiling and chopped up my vegetables (onion, red pepper and collard greens). Then I just cooked the pasta, reserving about 1/2 cup of pasta water, and let it…

Beet Chips, Chickpea Salad and Couscous Salad

Tonight for dinner, I made some beet chips which are super easy. The key is to get them as thinly sliced as possible so that they cook quickly and get crunchy. You can make chips with any vegetables, it’s so easy. And they’re baked so there’s no guilt. The chickpea salad has some avocado, mango…

Day 3: Berry Smoothie, Duo of Salads, and Rainbow Spring Rolls

Breakfast today also involved a blender. I made a smoothie with almond milk, oats and frozen blueberries, raspberries and coconut. I also added a little vanilla and honey for extra sweetness. I also ate a grapefruit. It was an alright breakfast, I just wish I had a better blender because there were so many seeds…

Day 1: Chickpea Salad Lettuce Wraps + Challenge for the Week

I’m trying to do a raw challenge this week, so only eating foods in their raw form. I was kind of inspired by a guy that I found on instagram who is eating raw and vegan (www.instagram.com/therawboy). I’m kind of doing this as an experiment to see if I’ll be full and satisfied from following…

Strawberry Frozen Yogurt

I have been trying to make healthier desserts, so I thought frozen yogurt would be a good solution. You can make it as complex as you like, but I just used some strawberry yogurt and added milk until it was a pourable consistency. Then I put it in my ice cream maker and let it…
