• Paleo Walnut Shrimp

    Okay—I actually did publish it…waaaay back in 2013. It’s one of my favorite dishes from our first cookbook (and our app), but for years, I held off on publishing this recipe on my blog, waiting (and waiting, and waiting…) for a super-special occasion to do so. After all, in my family, Walnut Shrimp was only served at happy gatherings—which …

  • Two-Bean Pasta Salad

    I am always playing around with ways to add more beans to my diet. And one of my favorite ways to eat beans is in a big chilled salad. Chilled salads, like today’s recipe, allow all the flavors to marinate into the beans, creating so much flavor and loveliness. Today’s Two-Bean Pasta Salad actually includes two of my favorite ingredients: beans …

  • Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies

    These Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies are chewy and dense and rich and lovely. Nutty pecans and vegan chocolate chips in every hearty bite. Hop in the kitchen and have a baking moment. Because, if you are like me, baking cookies just feels good! But watch out for those cookie-baking lurkers… Someone is always hanging around when you are …

  • Hella Southern Vegan Hot Chicken Biscuits

    I grew up on chicken biscuits, though certainly not the vegan variety. Next to Waffle House waffles, a hot chicken biscuit wrapped in foil from Chick-fil-A was my favorite restaurant treat! I remember begging my mom to buy me one as we’d drive by Chick-fil-A on our way to school. And if there wasn’t a …

  • Energizing Coco Date Balls

    Just as quickly as I fell in love with energy bars, I quit buying them. Their appeal is certainly in their simple ingredients, delicious taste, and convenience, but they also happen to be incredibly easy to make. For the last 6 or 7 years I’ve been making my own (and saving money in the process). …

  • Golden Coconut Apple Oatmeal

    The key ingredient you need to create this “golden milk” oatmeal is turmeric. We’ve talked a lot about turmeric on the blog before. It’s a powerful anti-inflammatory and I like to include it in my diet regularly to improve recovery. To enhance the absorption of curcurmin, the active ingredient found in turmeric, I added some black pepper. …

  • Green goddess spring socca

    Socca is a lovely meal for anytime of year, but for whatever reason I’m always most compelled to make it in the springtime. It’s something about the weather getting warmer: I’m ready to break out of grain bowls and soups for lunch, more eager for flatbreads and toasts and salads. This simple green goddess spring …

  • Adaptogenic date shake

    Each year, my now friend Sasha Swerdloff of Tending the Table genius organizes a trip for women in the food world (bloggers, cookbook authors, chefs, nutritionists, photographers etc.) to get together, hang out, share delicious food, and get to know each other beyond a screen (…see? Genius!) This year I actually got to attend – ok truth: I …
