Sweet Potato Breakfast Hash


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.

Spicy Soul Bowl

I am so excited to be back in my kitchen! I have been on the road for the past three weeks for work in New York City and then vacation to Europe (more on that in another post) and the one thing I couldn’t wait to do when I returned home was to cook. So much so that I woke up at 7AM this morning and went straight to Whole Foods (jet lag was partially to blame for this…) For lunch today I made myself a Spicy Soul Bowl and it was definitely spicy but really really good if you like a kick to your food.

Dairy-Free Walnut Pesto


Who doesn’t love pesto? This recipe uses walnuts instead of pine nuts (gotta get those omega 3-‘s) and nutritional yeast instead of traditional cheese- perfect for anyone who doesn’t eat dairy. Grow some basil or buy a bunch at your farmer’s market or local grocer and make a batch of pesto! Whatever you don’t use you can freeze for 2- 3 months (store in freezer-proof bags or tightly sealed tupperware).

Vega Chocolate-Banana Protein Shake


This was super delicious and it reminded me of one of those Wendy’s frosty shakes I used to drink when I was a kid- only this version is way healthier, plant-based and protein-packed. I know I said this on my last Vega post but I do not have any affiliation with them- I’ve just been trying their powders lately and loving some of the recipes I’ve been making, thus sharing them with you!

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 🙂

Kris Carr’s Penne A La Vodka


This pasta dish is just spectacular. I never use that word, but it truly is and the cashew cream sauce really takes it to the next level of pasta. I made this last night for a little Italian dinner on our rooftop with a friend and it was a hit.

Farmer’s Market Quinoa & Heirloom Tomato Salad


This dish was so simple and lovely. The hardest part about making it was trying to not eat the ingredients as I put it together! Make it as a lunch for yourself, or serve it as an appetizer with a meal.
