Let me tell you about my love for homemade nut butters. It dates back to the early days of this blog when I tried desperately to first make a batch of almond butter in my Vitamix (pro tip: use a food processor). Once I perfected my recipe, I started giving some to friends who then promoted it so much that people wanted to buy it. I made almond butter for a long time. I knew just how many batches it would take to burn out my processor (three) and would come home from work to fulfill orders. I ate copious… View Post

As you know, I’m not one for complicated recipes unless I get possessed by some kind of cooking demon which tends to happen only rarely. I like to eat the same boring foods over and over again and also take as little time as possible making them. Egg cups are just one of those foods. All you do is chop up some veggies, toss them in a pan with eggs, and bake until they’re done. You can make a bunch ahead of time so that you’re able to just pop them out and reheat them as snacks or part of… View Post

For some reason I always forget about rice cakes. I rediscovered them last year when I was participating in a fitness challenge at my gym and had to stick to certain ratios of carbs, protein, and fats. They’re an amazing source of pre or post workout carbs, but once the challenge was over and I stopped tracking what I was eating, I quickly forgot about them again. The past couple weeks I’ve had a new awakening to rice cakes again, but it can get a little boring just slathering on some nut butter (cashew FO LIFE) and chowing down. I… View Post

I’ve got a special recipe for you today from my friend Lindsay who recently released a BEAUTIFUL cookbook called Nourishing Superfood Bowls. I’ve followed Lindsay’s blog, Cotter Crunch, for several years and was finally able to meet her last year at the Everything Food Conference. I’m a huge fan of her photography and her food, so I’m really proud of her for putting together this compilation of breakfast, lunch, family-style, plant-based, and dessert bowls. She is also gluten-free, as are all the recipes in this book. I highly suggest grabbing a copy for yourself (or someone else), which you can… View Post

This post is sponsored by Sir Kensington’s. If you know me, you know I love sandwiches. I’ve been having the same turkey sandwich at dinner every night for literally somewhere around three months. I take pictures of sandwiches, I hunt them down, and I just get really excited to try new ones. (If you know of some good combos, let me know in the comments!) I’ve also been eating a lot of tuna lately because I went crazy and got 13156467 cans of it from Costco, so I’m trying to work my way through it. Normally I just eat it… View Post
