When it comes to fall weekends in addition to pumpkin everything, wings, burgers, dips, sausages and more might come to mind thanks to tailgating season. My favorite guilty treat are nachos. I like knowing where my ingredients come from and making them at home satisfies my craving. Unlike it’s restaurant counterpart, this recipe has zero […]

I love eating vegetarian a few times a week. As Michael Pollan famously said, “Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.” Eating vegetarian is also cheaper than buying meat for most meals. I love buying packs of veggie burgers as a way to make sure that I’m getting enough protein since I’m terrible at cooking […]

Life Alive is one of only a handful of vegetarian restaurants in the Boston area. Every meal I have ordered has been amazing. Tonight, I decided to recreate their […]

Am I the only one that hates the feeling of chia seeds grinding in between your teeth? I like the taste of chia pudding, but the texture not so much. It is a perfect sweet treat at the end of a clean eating day. Naturally gluten free and vegan, I was curious what would happen […]

When I travel, I always make an effort to visit new-to-me healthy restaurants. One of my high school best friends who lives in LA is lactose intolerant so she is always up for vegan restaurant requests.

Many people complain “juice” has no protein or fiber. Since I love green juice, I wanted to share with you a yummy breakfast that satisfies the green juice craving as well as delivers a hefty serving of protein and fiber. You won’t believe that this recipe does not require a juicer or protein powder. Earlier […]
