I now understand why this burger is called The Beyond Burger. It is BEYOND. Seriously. You will not understand until you try it for yourself, but essentially it’s a veggie burger made completely of plant protein, plus it’s gluten free (yay!), and it looks, smells, feels and tastes shockingly like a beef burger. To the point that I was actually nervous to take a bite because it reminded me so much of meat. And you don’t even have to take my word for it. My burger-crazy husband 100% agrees. This is an amazing product. Continue reading
Just look at those juicy clementines. Mmmhmmm. These chocolate covered oranges are my new favorite dessert/snack. They’re so easy that you may as well drop whatever it is you’re doing and make them right now. You probably have the ingredients! And then you’ll have a healthy snack/dessert in your fridge, ready to go, when a craving strikes. It’s just 3 ingredients. What are you waiting for?!
OK guys, this gluten free, vegan pasta salad is bananas. I don’t usually claim my recipes to be the best, but this one truly is so, so good. It’s a picnic in your mouth! And picnics are my favorite. Continue reading
Recently I had the opportunity to try some new food at Sprout Salad Company, a locally owned chain of three fast-casual restaurants that’s chugging along doing cool things in the salad space. I know, I know. Salad can be wahhhh wahhhh sometimes, but these guys are really damn good and they know what they’re doing.
Similar to my Dill Pickle Snack Mix recipe, I found out about this Honey-Sriracha Chex Mix recipe and just had to develop a variation I could try because it sounded so, so good! This one is even easier to create gluten and dairy free than my dill pickle snack mix and I highly recommend it. It’s quite addicting with that sweet, salty, spicy thing going on. It really hits the spot. Perfect for a book club or girls night or a game day party, what have you!
I have to be honest and tell you that I never actually had buckeye balls (a.k.a. buckeye candy, a.k.a. buckeyes) growing up. I had heard they were essentially peanut butter and chocolate—the very best dessert combination in my eyes. Continue reading
Annnnnd we’re back. I had to follow up that b-a-n-a-n-a-s vegan caramel puff corn recipe with something a little closer to my vibe: easy roasted broccoli. It gets perfectly charred and fresh, drizzled with lemon juice and zest, just like my roasted Brussels sprouts. This is another veggie recipe you’ll have to resist eating straight off the pan!
