  • Best Vegan Protein Sources September 13, 2018
    Whether you’ve been a vegan for decades or just starting to dabble with a plant-based diet, one of the most common things you’ll be asked is “how do you get enough protein?!” Many people assume that without meat, your muscles will wither away or that “vegan protein” equals gross “veggie” burgers and frankenfood.

  • Sweet Potato Hummus September 5, 2018

  • Greek Pita Pockets August 23, 2018

These Greek Pita Pockets may not photograph well but they sure hit the spot when lunchtime rolls around. No microwave required. You can make the tzatziki dip yourself or pick up a pre-made one.

  • Quinoa Pizza Bites August 17, 2018
    These Quinoa Pizza Bites were one of the very first recipes I posted on my blog back in 2013. They needed a major refresh and some new photos. Back then, no one even knew how to pronounce quinoa! I added more “pizza toppings” this time for more flavor and a pop of color. These healthy... […]

    I’m sure you’ve seen the ads for Brandless all over your social media too… common household products and pantry times, all for $3, with free shipping once you spend $39.

  • Benefits of Time-Restricted Eating April 27, 2018
    My role as a dietitian is to guide my clients in determining the best nutrition habits, lifestyle and exercise routines, and stress-reduction techniques to help them feel healthy, confident, and comfortable.
