Creamy Vegan Pasta Salad: Packed Lunch Idea #2

Creamy Vegan Pasta Salad: Packed Lunch Idea #2

Pasta salad used to be a dish I indulged in not too often because how unhealthy it was. Traditional pasta salad is usually covered in Mayo that of course is usually not Vegan and also very high in fat.  As this is the second recipe for my Easy Packed Lunches series, I wanted it to be something that could be eaten at room temperature, but also something super delicious and filling. The great thing about this recipe is that if you prefer, you can make it in a big batch on a Sunday and eat it throughout the week.  You… View Post

Potatoes: Two Ways

Potatoes: Two Ways

The best part about Thanksgiving, to me, is mashed potatoes! Seriously, who doesn’t love potatoes? Mashed, roasted, steamed, fried…Give me them all. Before going Vegan we would always buy these pre-made (I know…We’re terrible people) maple whipped sweet potatoes just because they were SO good! Since I can’t eat them anymore, I wanted to try to recreate them on my own and I must say…they’re pretty epic.  We also have some roasted garlic mashed potatoes because that combination is just glorious. No other way to really describe it.  Roasting Garlic is actually SUPER SIMPLE! It also tastes so delicious! It… View Post

Roasted Vegetables: Two Ways

Roasted Vegetables: Two Ways

Sides are probably one of the most important factors in the holidays! Tasty sides help make up a successful holiday meal and I want to help you guys have that successful VEGAN meal!  I decided to go for two incredibly simple recipes that can cook at the same exact time if you’re looking to make more than one vegetable side. Both using ingredients that you most likely have on hand, and will take 35-40 minutes to make in total.  Brussel sprouts have easily become one of my favorite vegetables. As a kid I absolutely despised them (didn’t we all?), but… View Post

Vegan Cornbread Stuffing

Vegan Cornbread Stuffing

I have never been a fan of stuffing. I know it’s crazy. Bread? Veggies? How could I say no? I think it’s because I was such a picky eater for a long time. However after going Vegan, I have developed a whole new love for food and I knew that this would have to be a recipe I attempted for the holiday season.    I have always loved cornbread. I grew up with my grandmother making her own and I’ve always cherished that family memory. My grandmother is still alive but has sadly declined in the past few years so… View Post
