Ramen with Fall Veggies

I forgot how much better I feel when I eat vegetarian! I am super spunky and have loads of energy! Don’t worry; I haven’t abandoned meat. I will still eat bacon, chicken (fried nuggets are my favorite), and as much seafood as I can. I am still eating pork and beef as well, just limiting…

Vegan Asparagus and Chickpea Fettuccine with Tomato Butter

I am notorious for watching, reading, and changing recipes. I love the idea of taking someone’s idea, and making it my own. Sometimes I am good and follow it if I have all the ingredients. Sometimes I improvise and use what I have when I want to make something similar to what I see. Sometimes…

Seitan Stir Fry with Cauliflower Rice

I don’t know if a lot of you know this, but I used to be a vegetarian; a vegan even! 13 years of vegetarianism with 3 years of those being vegan, I learned to love all veggies, fruits, and different types of fake meats (but vegan cheese was not very good at all). It has…

Roasted Chickpea Greek Salad

Still trying to use up my lettuce in new ways! I was going to make this in to a wrap of some sort, but I had a veggie sandwich for lunch (Rye bread with cucumbers, lettuce, tomato, avocado, and roasted peppers).  The other day my friend told me about how she roasted some chickpeas, and…

Save the Lettuce!

There is a funny tweet going around that says “Almost left the grocery store without buying a bag of spring mix to throw, unopened, into the garbage in two weeks.” Lol. We have all been there. Sometimes we do open it for one salad, eat said salad, feel healthy, then forget the rest of the…
