Spicy and smoky walnut ‘taco meat’ compliments a crunchy salad drizzled in a creamy tahini dressing.
Wakeup your winter lunch routine! Enough of those soups already…
Up until a couple weeks ago, if you asked me what ‘walnut meat’ was I would have assumed walnut crusted beef. But no. It is a thing. It is a marvellous thing that raw foodies like to do to enjoy gorgeous Mexican tacos sans creepy ground beef. (more…)
A little salty with your sweet, a little crispy with your crunch. A little adventure in every bite. That’s the way this salad goes
I was struggling with the idea of posting today; let alone eating anything besides oatmeal and peanut butter. You see, I have a very sick puppy on my hands and its heart breaking to see an innocent animal in even the slightest pain. (more…)
What’s a pilaf? I don’t know but it sounds pretty cool.
Savory mushrooms, tart kale and nutty quinoa blend together in this pretty bowl of quinoa!
Do you ever get into a rut where you are buying the exact same vegetables every week but preparing them in different ways? That is me with sweet potatoes, peppers and spinach. And I need a change I tell you! These mushrooms snuck up on me in the back of the fridge, reminding me how neglectful I have been.
Portobello mushrooms do good WORK in this pilaf, meaty and savory as they are. (more…)
8 Days into the New Year, some resolutions are tossed to the side and some still going strong. In the last month or so I have gone through a lot of changes personally, and I am taking advantage of the fresh exciting start that 2014 has to offer. With me this always involves a lot of journaling, inspiring-quote reading, O magazine scouring and dream board making…haha…so I have a lot of free time on my hands.
Back to resolutions, I may as well get mine out there to make myself a little more accountable:
drink less wine (okay like 1 glass every 2 days is okay)
breakup with chocolate (keep him on the side though)
eat 80% vegan (besides goat cheese, feta cheese, chocolate and the odd egg)
yoga everyday (the relaxing kind not the kind that makes you sweat heaps)
So there ya go. I am keeping all my resolutions, but to a degree that suits me. Im really serious about the yoga thing though…if I do one exercise it should be one that also clears the head and reduces anxiety. (more…)
Described as ‘the perfect soup’ by Ms Paltrow herself, this spicy creamy mouth explosion is likely to be your new fall go-to. Flipping through ‘Its All Good’ cookbook, I was immediately pulled in by my favourite word (chipotle) in one of her ‘Vegan and Elimination Diet friendly’ soup recipes. A lil smoky sweet goes a looong way in my bowl. (more…)
