These made the best little picnic breakfasts the other day!
My boyfriend loves egg benedict so I decided to make him one, only I veganized it. He hates tofu (and I avoid soy) so I used a beautiful ripe avocado from the farmer’s market instead. The avocado egg is rich, creamy and it makes a perfect bite along with the english muffin, fresh tomatoes, garlic spinach & hollandaise sauce.
I woke up today thinking “I want to make a bunch of pumpkin flavored recipes…” so I went out to Whole Foods, bought some organic pumpkin puree and got to work. These were the first of my pumpkin experiments and they turned out really fluffy, moist & delicious– despite the fact that they’re gluten-free and vegan (sometimes gluten-free baking turns out like a brick). I added apples to the muffins to add an extra sweetness- they’re at the peak of their season right now and absolutely delicious so head to your local farmer’s market, co-op or grocery store and stock up.
Here are a few yummy vegetables that you can find at your local farmer’s market this fall: sweet potatoes, bell peppers and onions! This morning I made a delicious baked breakfast hash using these three ingredients along with a few spices and condiments.
One of my favorite things to do is cook for other people. Whether it’s cooking a delicious meal for friends, family & co-workers, bringing a jar of fresh salsa as a hostess gift to a BBQ or baking sweets that’ll make someone smile. Last Friday a friend of mine helped me out with a project and I promised him a pie as a thank you, then asked him what flavor he wanted. He said he loved berry cobbler which is what inspired this recipe. You may notice in the photos I made two… one was for my friend and one was for my co-workers (I simply doubled the ingredients to make an extra to bring to work.)
This breakfast muesli is healthy, delicious & easy to make. The best part of all is that it’s a cheap breakfast- just visit the bulk bin section of your local grocery store for organic oats, nuts and coconut flakes and use pantry-staples like maple syrup, brown sugar and coconut oil to seal the deal. Pair with your favorite non-dairy yogurt or milk and some fruit for a perfect meal. Pictured in this recipe is vanilla coconut milk yogurt with fresh chopped cherries, but I won’t lie my absolute favorite way to eat this cereal is with sliced banana and vanilla rice milk. No matter how you serve it- it’s delicious 🙂
Who wants dessert for breakfast? This oatmeal tastes just like dessert- with healthy wholesome ingredients like strawberries, pistachios, chia seeds and oats and some added sweetness with the coconut flakes, coconut milk & coconut nectar.
This beautiful fruit salad makes a lovely dessert, snack or breakfast side dish. It is light, healthy and refreshing on a hot summer day plus it’s packed with lots of energy-boosting vitamins and minerals to keep you going. All ingredients are fresh at the local farmer’s market now, so enjoy them while they’re in season!
Purple potatoes are beautiful and the deep-hue makes them a unique side dish to any entree or breakfast. The lovely thing about these tots is that the purple potato packs far more antioxidants than their yellow and red counterparts so pick some up next time you’re buying potatoes. I bought mine at my local farmer’s market out here in California (they’re in season!)
I had a few ripened bananas in my fruit basket so I decided to make these heathy & delicious Oatmeal Raisin Cinnamon Banana-Nut Muffins for the week with what I had in my kitchen. They’re gluten and soy-free plus there’s nothing artificial in them! Just oats, fruits, nuts, spices and maple syrup (that was tapped from my grandfathers maple tree in Michigan.) They’re perfect for a light breakfast, snacks or accompanying a bowl of soup or salad with your dinner.
