Vegan Bacon & Brussels Pizza – Untraditional Thanksgiving Meal

I know I owe you a blog about my yoga teacher training with Trimurti. But first I wanted to share this awesome pizza my friend Nanette and I made on the fly! You can watch the video here. Since I was making this up as I went the ingredients are totally estimates. I think you’ll find if I’m close to correct it will be very delicious! You know nutritional yeast is magical stuff right? It makes everything taste better. You’ll need a store-bought pizza crust or make your own about 10-12 inches in diameter.… Read more

Mexican Cheesy Pasta in 10 minutes

Hey friends! I’ve got a recipe for you today. It’s easy. It takes 10 minutes to make. It’s delicious. Did I say it takes 10 minutes to make? I’m all about quick and easy these days. Actually, for the last few years quick and easy has been my MO. That’s why you haven’t seen many recipes on my blog as of late, because most times I’m throwing things together and there is no “recipe”. Hunger sets in, and if I have nothing planned or prepped, I dig through the pantries and fridge to see what’s in there.… Read more

Living Candida-Free and a sammie to knock your socks off!

I’m super excited to tell you about my friend Ricki Heller’s new cookbook Living Candida-Free! Her eBooks have been favorites of mine for a while. Desserts Without Compromise allowed me to eat guilt-free desserts during a time where I gave up sugar and was molding my physique. You might recall my review of her first book, Naturally Sweet & Gluten-free, and the fun On-Air interview we did where she walked me through how to make coconut macaroons. You’ll also find some of her delicious recipes in my Cooking by Color series from 2013 AND in the Cooking Tool of the Month series I did in 2012!… Read more

New Recipe: Chunky Monkey Flourless Cookies

I love sweets. It’s my one dietary downfall. In order to have (more) treats in my life without feeling guilty I do weird things like sneak protein powder in them. This is sort of a “thing” in the bodybuilding/powerlifting community. Is it something you should start doing? I would say yes! These cookies are magical. Granted they aren’t perfectly shaped or anything, but peanut butter and chocolate are a match made in heaven! I think we can all agree there, am I right?!… Read more

NuZest: The newest plant protein to rock your world!

For those of you who follow my fitness journey or have seen me speak on nutrition know that I’m not one to blow off protein. Yes, as vegans we don’t need as much as an average omnivore is eating. Even as athletes or those wanting to build muscle do not need to eat as much as the traditional bodybuilding diet. We are talking up to 50% of calories coming from protein, which is usually in the form of animal flesh in the omnivore diet.… Read more
