Lifestyle Change Made Easier

Lifestyle changes usually result when something in our life isn’t working. No matter what the reason, making such a change takes effort and commitment.

When that change involves transitioning  from the Standard American Diet to a healthier Whole Food, Plant-Based Diet, it can be even tougher. We are surrounded by unhealthy choices – whether in …

No-Bake Chocolate Cookies

I am a no-bake kind of person. Patience is not my strong suit. I love putting a dish together and then being able to chow down on it shortly thereafter. This is especially true for desserts – life is too short to wait!  So, imagine my delight when I discovered these no-bake chocolate cookies at the website, Vegan Heaven. They …

Pumpkin Pie Pudding

It’s funny how autumn just seems to bring pumpkins to mind. The other day, out of the blue, my husband says, “Hmmm…pumpkin pie sure would be good.” Well, I don’t have pumpkin pie, but he’ll be happy tonight when he I surprise him with this quick batch of pumpkin pie pudding. Simple and easy – it’s Chef AJ’s Pumpkin Pie …

Vegan Breakfast Sausage

Sausage is my downfall. It’s easily one of my favorite foods whether served at breakfast, lunch or dinner, and I don’t care if it’s in a marinara sauce, a gumbo, on a bun, or in a burrito. It’s the spices I love–the flavorful mix that blend together to define the breakfast sausage, or the Italian, Cajun or Mexican sausage. Yes, …

Who Needs a BLT When You Can Have a PLT

I love easy, and I have to admit the Facebook PLT (pepper. lettuce and tomato) video caught my attention right away. The BLT alternative looked about as easy as they come. Start with roasted peppers, drizzle on a little maple syrup and BBQ sauce, pop in the oven and roast 20 minutes. Then Viola! You’re ready to layer up a good-tasting …

RX To Beat The Heat – Watermelon Frosty

What a bear of a summer this has been! The heat has been quite oppressive, and as much as I would like to kid myself, we most likely have at least another month of summer to come. I went looking for a recipe that offered some heat relief and was excited to come across this cool, refreshing drink dreamed up by Kathy Patalsky of kblog.lunchboxbunch.com. I’m …

Tempeh Gyros with Cashew Tzatziki

I love Mediterranean dishes – hummus, falafel, tabouli, grapes leaves, on, in or with pita bread. I was delighted to discover this tempeh gyro dish that has become one of my favorites. Simple, and tasty – who could ask for more? You can serve it in a pita pocket, but I love it on a salad, served along with a …

Deviled Avocados with Spicy Curry Sauce

Avocados seem to shout out, “Summer’s here!” Everybody loves guacamole. You can never go wrong serving up a big bowl along with a heap of chips or crackers, but I was looking for something a little different. I wanted the same wonderful creaminess of guacamole, but with a twist. These deviled avocados with spicy curry sauce hit the spot! Apples, …

No-Bake Chunky Monkey Bites

I don’t know what I have against baking – maybe it’s that I’m too impatient. I can do it, and will on occasion, but I much prefer not having to wait. I like diving in as soon as I get the dish assembled, which is one reason I love these chocolately no-bake bites from The Big Man’s World website. Healthy …
