Creamy Avocado Pesto Pasta Salad with a vegan and nut free option!

I’ve had a tub of pesto staring at me in my fridge for the past week and I finally decided its fate yesterday. I’m a bit of a sucker when it comes to grocery shopping, and love buying all sorts of things that I really have no plan for.  Pesto fell into that category… and so was born this Creamy … View The Post

Mediterranean bulgur salad loaded with veggies and whole grains, such a satisfying vegetarian meal!

Baby Kale Quinoa Salad Recipe

Let’s be honest, you would have had to be living under a rock for the past couple of years to miss the fact that kale is ridiculously healthy.

Crispy tofu spring rolls with peanut dipping sauce

Spring has sprung, and I am SO looking forward to the lighter food and fresh produce that warmer weather brings.  It was a beautiful sunny day, and I wanted to make something that tasted like summer.  I had just finished a shopping spree at Nature’s Fare Market (a health-foodie’s dream), and with a package of tofu and a pile of … View The Post
