“Cheesy” Vegan Mushroom Quinoa

I came up with a delicious new vegan creation over the weekend! I was craving my Comforting Pumpkin Quinoa and started to make that, but, as I began to cook, I decided I wanted something more like my “Cheesy” Coconut Sautéed Chickpeas and Kale (SO good).

Easy Lentil Veggie Burgers (vegan)

It’s official. I have a new favorite veggie burger recipe! I whipped these up a couple weeks ago on a whim for lunch and was so happy with how they turned out.

Even better — I’ll just join you for the yoga class, too! 30 minutes later I was Continue Reading …

One Small Change I Made to Improve My Health

That used to translate to a lot of time sitting down being completely inactive, but shortly after we moved in to our apartment in Chapel Hill last fall I discovered something awesome — the ledge (I think it’s called a breakfast bar) between our Continue Reading …
