This week is all about bowls, veggie bowls in particular. You’ll get your fill of nutrient-packed veggies — think: teriyaki sweet potato, tahini-dressed roasted cauliflower and egg-topped sauerkraut — piled on top of rice, or in some cases cauliflower “rice,” or quinoa, or whatever other starch your heart desires. Happy cooking! Read more »
If on January 1st, you were all “New year, new me!

Stuffed veggies are a wonderful dinner in many ways: they leave you with few dishes, because the stuffed veggie is the dish, basically; they are generally super nutritious; and the recipes are totally flexible in terms of what you throw in. So for this week’s recipes, we give you five stuffed veggies (okay, okay, technically avocados and peppers are fruits, but work with us, people) to make for dinner this week. Enjoy! Read more »
Simply put, a breakfast bowl is the upgraded eggs with toast. And since I often eat eggs with toast for dinner — and I’m guessing some of you guys do, too — I figure a breakfast bowl for dinner is a perfectly acceptable way to up my dinner game. But this week’s recipes aren’t all about eggs, because that would be kind of boring, don’t you think? We’ve also got a breakfast bowl with a scrambled chickpea concoction, and a raspberry breakfast bowl that’s basically dessert for dinner. You are welcome. Read more »
A few days ago, while sitting outside enjoying the weather, fall smacked me right in the face. Literally: a crunchy leaf fell from the sky and hit me right between the eyes. But I wasn’t mad, because fall is my all-around favorite time of year. What’s not to love? There’s football, beautiful weather, Thanksgiving, my birthday, and not to mention absolutely delicious seasonal produce.
This week, celebrate fall with these five dishes featuring — strike that — starring fall’s yummiest ingredients. We’ve got apples (if you feel like being fancy, pick your own), mushroom, squash, sweet potatoes, and even pomegranate. Oh, and did I mention all of the recipes this week are completely meatless? Yep, no meat here. And no scary falling leaves, either. Read more »
Focusing on your gut health is all the rage these days, and for good reason: A gut full of good bacteria can lead to all sorts of health benefits. Think: better skin, a boosted immune system, and more. And the easiest way to boost the good bacteria in your gut? Work fermented foods into your diet. Did you just gag and walk away? Not so fast. With this week’s recipes, my goal is to show you fermented foods aren’t all kombucha and sauerkraut.
Below, five good-for-your-gut recipes starring fermented all-stars like miso, yogurt, tempeh, kimchi and more. Eat up! Read more »
Confession: I cannot survive without meat. In fact, I’ve come to terms with the fact that I’m probably actually a carnivore, not an omnivore like science says we humans are. If you’re with me on that, then you know: vegetables can be scary — especially when people try to pass off a mound of chickpeas in the shape of a burger as the real thing. (You’re not fooling me, dude.) Although the thought of going whole-hog (excuse the reference) vegetarian makes me want to run far, far away, I’ve decided that maaaaaaaybe I should give veggies a second chance.
So, we’ve searched high and low and found some vegetarian and vegan recipes that will make you forget about meat altogether. These recipes substitute meat the right way, using hearty veggies like eggplant, squash and mushroom. Here you go, five meatless meals that will have you happily converting to vegetarianism (for one meal, anyway). Read more »
