Vanilla Almond Cashew Milk

...By making our own nut milk we are saving big time in our food budget. This makes me more and more excited about making almond cashew milk from scratch. It's easy, healthy, and tasty! I love having fresh frothy milk to drink...

Breakfast Tacos

These Breakfast Tacos are definitely culturally confused what with using Fiesta Scrambled Tofu, Sweet Potato Fries, sriracha sauce, and sauerkraut!!! The meal sounds a bit crazy, but do you trust me? These tacos are well worth it! Dig out the forgotten contents of your refrigerator and whip up these bad boys for Mother's Day! Tacos up!

Fiesta Scrambled Tofu

For all the savory breakfast lovers out there, here's a new treat! I made Culturally Confused Breakfast Tacos last weekend and directions for that delicious feast will be coming soon, but first you need to know how to make the Fiesta Scrambled Tofu! Scroll down to the bottom of the recipe for a sneak peak at the Culturally Confused Breakfast Tacos! 😉 A delicious recipe to brighten your day!!!

Oil-Free Hash Browns

Hash browns are not usually an item I'd choose from a restaurant menu because they're likely dripping in oil, but this recipe side steps that issue in a way that is super easy and yet still scrumptious!

Tempeh Fake’n Bacon

...All cultures around the world have their own form of fermented foods that they consume regularly! In Korea they eat kimchi, in Japan they eat miso, Greece has its yogurt, Germans like their sauerkraut, and that's just the beginning.(links for more information below). So start consuming fermented foods (in moderation), it could save your gut. The first fermented food on your list could definitely be, TEMPEH!

Za’atar (زَعْتَر) Scrambled Tofu

I had been tempted to add za'atar all along, but thought I would shy on the side of caution since this was a new recipe for me. I pushed my inhibition aside and sprinkled on the za'atar... folks you will probably see a lot more recipes in the future highlighting this fantastic condiment! It is definitely my go-to seasoning when a recipe needs a little extra punch of goodness! This recipe is still great if you don't have the za'atar, but if you have it... shake it one!

100% Whole Wheat Pancakes

Some days are pancake days. Try out this 100% whole-wheat pancake recipe with zero sugar or oil added. If you have a hard-anodized pan then you don't even need to use oil in the pancake frying process (we have a great pan from Costco)! This breakfast is high in fiber yet just as tasty as traditional pancake recipes. Eat these pancakes with berries, bananas, unsweetened applesauce, raisins, nut butters, date paste, or fruit compote for a special treat that is also good for you. Start (or finish) your day with a meal that gives you energy instead of zapping it from you! Make a double batch and store in the freezer for a quick meal or snack later on. Just pop one or two frozen pancakes in the toaster, spread with peanut butter and date paste (my favorite combo) and head out the door!

How To: Make Fruit Compote

There is something so inviting about warm cinnamon peaches poured over whole wheat pancakes or waffles. A lot of recipes online use sugar to sweetened the fruit, I don't think you need it! This recipe only uses fruit, cinnamon, and water. Fruit compote is easy, fast and healthy, my favorite combination! Just start with whatever you have and get cooking!

How To: Make Almond Milk

This easy recipe will take you less then 5 minutes to prepare and is 4 times cheaper then purchasing at the grocery store (not to mention the time it would have taken to drive to there). You also know 100% whats inside your milk, no mystery necessary! This recipe produces 8 cups (2 quarts) of unsweetened almond milk which translates to about 40 calories a cup and 2% calcium (which comes naturally from the almonds). I bought my almonds from Costco and did my own price analysis. It is about...

10 min Apple Pie Stovetop Oatmeal

The holidays are over and it is time to HIT those resolutions in the FACE, in a good way. I rarely make stovetop oats but this weekend I ate it twice. Sometimes you just want something hot for breakfast and you want it fast! I'm sure we all ate too much food this holiday and stayed up way too late last night but here is a breakfast to get you back on track. This oatmeal is full of walnuts, ginger, cinnamon, dates, and a few other optional super food toppings to kickstart the year. Go get em tiger!

Apple Pie Overnight Oats

If you’re feeling REAL fancy you can make coconut whipped cream with a bit of maple syrup and make your breakfast oats bonkers and all thanksgiving like… but try not to eat that everyday.
