Easy Mexican Tortilla Pizza

This is so easy to make and one of my all-time favorite comfort foods. The best part? You only need 5 ingredients to start and it costs TWO DOLLARS to make. Who says eating healthy & vegan is expensive?! I often eat this pizza on weeknights after a long day of work but I once made a whole batch of these, sliced em’ up and served them as snacks to friends during movie night (they didn’t know they were vegan bwah-haha).

Toasted Coconut Muesli Cereal


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 🙂

Bruschetta & “Brie” Toasts

This makes a delicious appetizer for a dinner party (or date night if you don’t mind strong garlic breath…) Tomorrow is my birthday so I used it as an excuse to finally splurge on the Kite Hill White Adler vegan cheese I’ve been eying for months. It’s the vegan version of a brie and I must say, while I can tell it’s a vegan cheese- it’s the closest vegan cheese I’ve ever tasted to a brie. It was really good and I’d definitely spend the $13.99 again, although next time I want to try one of their other flavors.

Fresh Pico De Gallo Salsa

This salsa is wonderful as a dip with tortilla chips, on tacos or on a salad. It’s raw, light and refreshing with a little kick from the jalapeño. Tip: After I made the salsa, I put some in a mason jar and brought it as a little hostess gift for a party. Just an idea 🙂

Vanilla Chia-Nut Granola Cereal

The other day I thought to myself “gluten-free cereals are so expensive!” That and “why are there so many ingredients in this stuff?” I hate not knowing if my food has GMO’s and extra additives because the ingredient list reads like a mini novel. So I made my own cereal this morning and it is really, really good. This granola cereal reminds me of those “vanilla nut cluster crunch” type cereals I used to love when I was little, only this one has less than 10 ingredients, it’s healthier and it has a nice dose of protein and fiber 🙂
