A delicious take on a sushi bowl, this bowl contains quinoa which is a delicious alternative but higher in protein.  My obsession with quinoa continues with this new recipe of a sushi bowl. It is super easy to throw together and takes around 20 minutes. Plus, it’s packed with protein and veggies! I always find that when I’m in a pinch, or lost on ideas of what meals to bring to work, sushi bowls are always a go to. There really isn’t a set definition of what consists in a sushi bowl, it’s really up to your preference!  For me,… View Post

Vegan “Tuna” Pasta Salad

Vegan “Tuna” Pasta Salad

A perfect Summer recipe, this Vegan “Tuna” Pasta Salad is delicious and easy to make!  Today’s recipe is something that I thought of randomly. I never ate fish before going Vegan, but I know that people love recipes that involve Tuna.  After going Vegan, I found a strong appreciation for chickpea “tuna” sandwiches. They are so delicious and easy to make, but also a fantastic protein source.  So as I was thinking, I came to the realization that “tuna” chickpea salad could also be great in a pasta salad!  This recipe came together incredibly fast because you can prep all… View Post

Arugula Pesto Cauliflower Rice Bowls W/ Balsamic Tempeh & Mushrooms

A super light and refreshing meal for summer, this arugula nut free pesto cauliflower rice bowl is delicious and easy to make. Fun fact: I used to hate cauliflower rice.

So this pesto is not only Vegan (duh), but… View Post

Black Bean & Chili Quinoa

Black Bean & Chili Quinoa

A perfect high protein meal prep option, today’s recipe is a black bean & chili quinoa Two requests for recipes that I get are for easy meal prep & recipes that involve beans. So, I decided today to combine both!  I have been on a taco kick lately.

One of the the food changes I wanted to make was to really… View Post
