Chocolate Zucchini and Butternut Squash Muffins (healthy, vegan + gluten free)

On my Instagram, I often made a rendition of this delicious zucchini cake from Chocolate Covered Katie, who has been one of my top blogging inspirations! Two years ago, I made these incredible tofu fries from her website with hemp tofu! But unlike that recipe, I did not fill the kitchen with a vile stench. In fact, … More Chocolate Zucchini and Butternut Squash Muffins (healthy, vegan + gluten free)

Pancake Batter Oatmeal (healthy, vegan + gluten free)

First time I tried pancake batter, I nearly choked myself to death. Whatever goop hung on the whisk was overly bitter, grainy, and salty. All together, just the worst possible combinations of flavors that sandpaper sounded tasty in comparison. Question is, why on Earth am I dedicating an entire recipe to a flavor that I … More Pancake Batter Oatmeal (healthy, vegan + gluten free)

Eggplant Pad Thai (healthy + vegan..with a Paleo option!)

While I adore my spicy eggplant and tofu satay, curry has always been my number one go-to order at any Thai restaurant. Until NOW. Oh Pad Thai–it just screams comfort food. Spicy, sweet, sticky, tangy, and savory comfort food. Before my health journey, I loved to inhale Pad Thai without any utensils! Unfortunately, Pad Thai is most … More Eggplant Pad Thai (healthy + vegan..with a Paleo option!)

Golden Oatmeal (healthy, vegan, gluten free + anti-inflammatory)

Here’s a thoughtful question for you: would you ever consider consuming an entire bowl of nature’s gold? Thing is, gold is a naturally-occurring element on this planet, so in literal terms, I would most certainly pass on that offer. However, if someone were to present me with peanut butter or spaghetti squash as nature’s gold, I’d totally … More Golden Oatmeal (healthy, vegan, gluten free + anti-inflammatory)

Cinnamon Roll Oatmeal (healthy, vegan + gluten free)

When we throw out the term “breakfast food”, pancakes, waffles, eggs and bacon, coffee, and toast with butter are the first meals that come to mind. However, the most common breakfast foods that I relished as a child were pastries: croissants, muffins, bagels, scones, donuts, and cinnamon rolls, the latter being one of my absolute … More Cinnamon Roll Oatmeal (healthy, vegan + gluten free)

Lakanto: Monk Fruit Maple Flavored Syrup Review

Every breakfast lover must have doused a stack of pancakes or waffles with nearly half a cup of maple syrup at least once in their lifetime. I can testify that I’ve done this multiple times in the past, and I have no regrets about it! While maple syrup is definitely a healthier alternative than conventional … More Lakanto: Monk Fruit Maple Flavored Syrup Review

Dorm-Friendly Vegan and Gluten Free Protein Pancakes

PERFECT for Pancake Sunday… Throwing it back long ago, I had the toughest time trying to find a vegan pancake recipe that wouldn’t fall apart and was high in protein. I would normally come across these lovely recipes that yielded 6-8 teeny tiny pancakes. Um, I don’t know about you, but I preferred to have … More Dorm-Friendly Vegan and Gluten Free Protein Pancakes
