Memorial Day always signifies the beginning of summer, so what better way than to brush off the grill, fill up the gas tank or purchase a brand new bag of charcoal, and get ready for a summer full of grilling with these great recipes and assorted sides!
I'm a firm believer in living a plant based lifestyle for one major reason - to live a long and healthy life. According to the CDC the top disease threat to women is heart disease. But we can change that by changing our lifestyles and eating a whole food, plant based diet. And here are some incredibly delicious and healthy recipes to treat Mom to this Mother's Day. We love our Moms, and if food is love, eat on!
Do salads sometimes leave you still wanting something more? Not totally satisfying or filling? Try out my awesome Almond Salad and you'll be full throughout the rest of the day! Its one of my favorite lunch time meals especially during the work week when I barely have time to scarf it down! With minimal prep work you'll be happy you spent the extra 20 minutes getting this salad put together ahead of time!
I'm going to say it - this is the best pizza I've ever had. It was super easy to make, so much better than frozen, and cheaper than delivery. It reminds me exactly of a BBQ chicken pizza, only its made with BBQ jackfruit, which is so much healthier. Chicken may be deemed the healthy meat, but its full of cholesterol and saturated fat, while jackfruit has 0 cholesterol, 0 saturated fat, 739 awesome mg of potassium, and is a super source of vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, electrolytes, fiber, and protein. So not only does this pizza taste good, its incredibly good for you!
I love this roasted vegetable bowl because you can create a bunch of different versions. Just swap out some of the vegetables for other ones and top over quinoa instead of rice. This bowl is a great reboot if you've been struggling with eating healthy. Not only is it delicious it also makes you feel amazing!
Looking for a plant based, vegan version of an egg salad sandwich? Look no further! I haven't had egg salad in years and have been missing it, until now! There's something about the combination of mashed chickpeas, Vegenaise, celery, pickle relish, and dill that tastes JUST LIKE an egg salad sandwich!
I love ratatouille. Originally a French peasant’s dish, this is a super easy yet super delicious recipe you can make in under and hour. Normally I would roast the veggies in my oven, but there’s something summery about grilling the veggies and smelling their aromas while you patiently wait in the outdoors. I made this with two different sauces, tomato and pesto, so pick which one you would like best, or if you can’t decide, make them both like I did. (Don't worry if you don't have a grill - you can easily make this recipe by roasting the vegetables in your oven.)
