Run Fast Eat Slow Review + Can’t Beet Me Smoothie
Book Review
When Run Fast Eat Slow by Shalane Flanagan & Elyse Kopecky first came out, I was hesitant to put it on my cookbook wish list. What I didn’t need was another cookbook on my shelf that I rarely used because it was full of recipes containing meat. After the book was released and more and more running bloggers began talking about the …
Vegan Curry Shepherd’s Pie
Recipes
I love Indian cuisine!  It’s like a party in my mouth from the spices… and I just love those flavors. While not a traditional shepherd’s pie, I think that my Vegan Curry Shepherd’s Pie will become a favorite. The inspiration from this dish came from my sister.  Her curried shepherd’s pie is a hit for her family. I was curious how I could …
Vegan Greek Pasta
Recipes
I think most of us have that friend that posts recipes on Facebook that look really good and make you hungry just by looking at them.  Recently that happened to me… a friend posted a recipe for Greek Pasta.  It looked so good, that I knew I had to veganize it! The feta cheese is easy to make and is almond based. …
Greek Style Cucumber Nachos
Recipes
Greek Style Cucumber Nachos – I’m really on a nacho roll lately.  Let’s just blame it on March Madness. After cooking up the Mediterranean inspired pizza last weekend, I started wondering if I could do nachos in a similar fashion.  (spoiler alert… I did) I wasn’t sure what to use as the base “chips” … originally I was thinking pita …
Med-Veg Pizza
Recipes
Pizza… it was my favorite food in High School… I thought I could eat it every day without growing tired of it (note:  my parents didn’t allow that to happen). The inspiration from this recipe comes from Connoisseurus Veg.  If you haven’t checked out her blog, you should! She has some great recipes! What intrigued me about this pizza was having a …
Loaded Sweet Potato Nachos
Recipes
It isn’t a secret that I love nachos… but generally they aren’t that good for you. A facebook friend had recently shared one of those cooking videos for sweet potato nachos, they were full of dairy and chicken… but it got me thinking about veganizing them! Since that recipe has shredded chicken, I thought that shredded jackfruit would be a good stand-in.  …
Veggie Stirfry with Spicy Peanut Sauce
Recipes
Stir-fry has got to be one of the fastest meals to cook… especially if you already have all the veggies prepped! I think it is also one of the most versatile… there are practically endless choices of vegetables and sauce combinations that you can use. I like a good amount of sauce… that will settle down into the rice so at the …
Broccoli Slaw Spaghetti
Recipes
I want to share a fast, easy meal today. It sounds a little strange, but trust me, It is good! In this creation, I use broccoli slaw as the spaghetti and top it with a jarred pasta sauce.  I really like the Mezzetta Napa Valley Homemade – Wild Mushroom. I crumbled a little tempeh in the sauce for a little …
Savory Snack Crackers
Recipes
When I was growing up, Hidden Valley Ranch Oyster Crackers were a mainstay at potlucks and parties.  They were so good. I recently had a few extra packages of oyster crackers, and I thought why not make some of those crackers for snacking during the upcoming March Madness!  Then I came to the realization that the packet of Hidden Valley Ranch …
Meatless Lazy Lasagna
Recipes
I want to begin with this disclaimer… this is not a healthy or clean recipe.  With that being said… it’s all about moderation, so let’s get down to some ooey-gooey lasagna goodness! Some people get a little nervous and jerky when they think about a meal without meat… the hubs is one of them.  However, he does like lasagna and at times forgets …
