Vanilla Berry Chia Pudding

During school weekdays it’s an extremely rare occasion for me to actually have time for a sit down breakfast, especially when classes start at 8 AM! I usually find myself having breakfast on my way to class while simultaneously sipping coffee and brushing up on material to prepare myself for pop quizzes. Yeah, mornings are…

Chocolate Raspberry Almond Tart

I’m having a grade A panic attack and need chocolate STAT. Like seriously, all the chocolate and maybe some liquid encouragement too. (sorry, mom) Can we talk about the fact that I’m leaving for Arizona in approx. 3 days and have so much to get done before I go? Haircut, keratin treatment, mani pedi, clothes…

Coconut Cherry Pecan Granola

Recipe #2 that uses leftover almond pulp from making almondĀ milkĀ is finally here, and oh so tasty! I’m always struggling to find granola thats not pumped full of sugar and preservatives and the only solution to that issue is making your own! It’s so simple, requires minimal ingredients, and is even more delicious that what you…

Vegan Cherry Chocolate Chip Ice cream

I promise that all other times, besides this one, I have self control. Normally my willpower is strong, I swear! But not this time, nope. Summer and ice cream go hand in hand and they’re currently showing no signs of letting go, thank goodness. Last week, I bought a pint of sodelicious mint chocolate chip,…

Maple Cinnamon Almond Milk

Hang on tight, dear readers, because this post is about to rock your world. Let me be the first to tell you that my beginning attempts at homemade almond milk were far from successful. And I mean way far, somewhere in neverland. I had the most difficult time getting my almond milk to be as…

Pineapple & Veggie Teriyaki Skewers

In my opinion, summer time means grilling time! My fondest memories of summer time as a little kid revolve around backyard barbecues with family and friends, swimming, and maybe even some s’mores around the fire if nobody had beaten each other up that day. I’d like to think that I’ve moved on from the traditional…

Summer Arugula Salad with Balsamic Reduction

Trying to come up with a family dinner for four can be hard. Especially when one of us is a celiac (me), the other is a vegetarian, one is non dairy or egg and no red meat, and the other, my poor mama, is the only one who has free range to eat whatever she…

Chocolate, Peanut Butter, and Banana Overnight Oats

I’m a firm believer that good food doesn’t need to be fancy in order to be overwhelmingly delicious. I mean, yeah serve me up some eggs benny with the fixings and I’m a happy girl, but I’m also just as satisfied with a big ol’ bowl of oatmeal for breakfast! This recipe for overnight oats…

Crimini & Artichoke Millet Risotto

You know how some dishes just scream comfort? For me, these dishes are typically a steaming bowl of oatmeal, a healthy serving of my mom’s killer mac n cheese, and basically any food that involves rice. Gotta have em. (yeah! carbs) On a recent trip to the East Coast, I was sitting down at my…
