Peanut Butter Banana Chia Pudding

Let me start this recipe by posing a question…what do we all really want in this universe? Do we all really want world peace? Yes, of course. Did I also include a Miss Congeniality gif? Maybe. But seriously, if you’re being a bit more selfish with your answer, you know that all anyone really wants […]

Grilled Sriracha Tofu Steaks & Sauteed Garlic Snow Peas

Now that we have a yard and a gas grill, every time the sun is out I have a compulsion to GRILL EVERYTHING! So, it’s a beautiful summer day, I had some tofu in the fridge and a bag of fresh snow peas from my friend Tricia’s garden, and came up with this dinner idea! […]

Edamame means snack time!

If I haven’t already professed my love for edamame here…I will do so now. I FREAKING LOVE EDAMAME!!! It tastes amazing, and is ridiculously healthy. Though I love it with the shell still on, shelled edamame is delicious too. I usually eat it as a side, mixed in with rice or noodles, or as a […]

Spinach and Black Bean Quesadilla

I’m a quesadilla nut. I’m not sure why but something about the crispy tortilla and melty cheesy goodness just makes me drool…to the point where I used to make quesadillas for breakfast…and lunch…and dinner. Thankfully I’m out of that phase, but quesadillas are still a go-to quickie meal for me. The spinach and black beans […]

5-minute vegan lunch

After my run today I decided to whip up a quick, vegan, protein-filled lunch. I used a recipe found in PETA’s Vegan College Cookbook called “Dorm-room Ramen Delight.” True, I don’t live in a dorm room, but I’m still a poor college student and still love Ramen noodles. I added a cut-up Morningstar Farms spicy […]

Easy Speedy Healthy Vegetarian Breakfast

I think it’s only appropriate to use my daily breakfast as the first food post. I’m not what you would call a “morning person,” so my breakfast needs to be quick and easy since I waste so much time hitting the snooze. While most easy breakfasts would seem unhealthy, like a bowl of sugary cereal […]
