  • 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 …

  • 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 …

  • 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. …

  • 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 …

  • Vegan Love Shakes!

    We usually don’t do a big thing of Valentine’s Day so I’m not sure what happened here. Maybe it was because we recently got married or because Elsa has been drawing and folding Valentine gifts (for us!) for the past week. Perhaps it was because Noah slowly has been starting his kindergarten training so we are finally getting a few moments together again without any kids …

  • The Perfect Bowl Of Oats

    Ah, the perfect bowl of oatmeal – a thing to behold. When we’re sick, craving comfort food, or just want something extra hearty for breakfast, this is our go-to meal. In the hundreds of times we’ve made oats, we’ve found some tricks that elevate the texture, flavor, and tenderness, and we’re stoked to share those …

  • Strawberry Coconut Cream Tart

    I hope you all had a great weekend! It felt like summer around here, and it was amazing. We went for a long breezy walk to the farmers market, sat out on patios and drank wine, then sat out on (more) patios and ate dinner. It felt absolutely incredible to bask in the sun and …

  • Next Stop, Summer: A Day Aboard a Mister Softee Truck

    In a dimly lit depot in Hunts Point, the Bronx, Heli Vasquez prepared his Mister Softee truck for the drive to Manhattan. He had a fully charged AirPod in his ear, a giant bag of SunChips within reach and DVDs of his favorite old music videos to play. But all that would come later. “The …
