Rainbow Vegetable Slaw

This Rainbow Vegetable Slaw is sure to not disappoint all my veggie and salad lovers out there, it’s loaded with raw crunchy veggies and topped with a creamy sauce made from all whole food ingredients (vegan friendly). I’ve always had a thing for salads, seriously, ever since I was a little girl I’ve loved fresh big bowls of salads. Anything where I can mix several flavors and textures from vegetables is always a win in my book. I especially love slaws nowadays and in the spring and summer months for a quick side dish or meal. Rainbow Vegetable Slaw is also perfect to bring with you to work, school, picnics or parties to serve all your lovely friends and family.

I have fantastic memories of my mother cutting up fresh tomatoes, cucumbers, and squashes from our little garden and putting them into salads, it was always a rainbow of beautiful vegetables. One of those vegetables being red cabbage, which I particularly didn’t like growing up, but nowadays I can’t picture a salad bowl (especially slaw) without it! Slaws inheriting are a fantastic concept for a salad, crunchy julienned vegetables, mostly cabbage with a sauce combining it all together for a delicious crunchy salad.

One Bowl Skillet Meal

I’m sure you all know this by now, especially following me on Instagram and Facebook, but I’ve just recently moved into a new home and have been incredibly busy juggling all my work + trying to decorate + spending hours pinning home decor inspirations + online shopping (which I ADORE doing… who else?). Although this is an amazing time in my life full of excitement, happiness, and pure joy, it’s also leaving me a bit low on time especially around dinner! Enter in, my go-to meal I routinely have when I’m feeling a little tight with my schedule… the One Bowl Skillet Meal.

What is the One Bowl Skillet Meal? Similar to my popular recipe the Nourish Bowl, the idea behind the One Bowl Skillet Meal is to include all balanced meal components in one single bowl meal- no mess, no fuss, just deliciously simple healthy eating! I typically will take items/meal components from my Batch Cooking day such as quinoa, roasted veggies, baked sweet potatoes, lentils, tempeh, beans, eggs, etc. and pop them in a skillet for a quick heat through. I add fresh herbs, spices, any other dressings or condiments I may have on hand or finish with a drizzle of olive oil, sprinkle with nuts/seeds, or sliced avocado. Towards the end of the week my fridge runs a little light on veggies, so I always have a backup of frozen organic bell peppers, carrots, spinach, mixed veggies, etc. to pop in the skillet while reheating as well (you can never have too many veggies right? right!).

Double Layer Lemon Custard with Strawberry Compote

Whenever I think of custard, I think of really heavy, dairy-laden, high fat desserts found in Italian restaurants; although most of that is true, today I’m here to shine a new light on the word custard by sharing an incredibly healthy vegan spin on this classic custard dessert. Double Layer Lemon Custard with Strawberry Compote is not only is a great vegan alternative to traditional custards, it’s perfect for the warmer months of the year utilizing fresh product in season such as strawberries and refreshing lemons.

I adore using fresh fruits and citrus in spring and summer recipes because it brings  a certain light, airy, and refreshing feel to the meal. Especially with desserts, sometimes it’s nice to have something a little on the lighter side with flavor and digestibility (I mean hey, we all need to look great in our shorts and dresses this summer right?). This Double Layer Lemon Custard with Strawberry Compote gives you the best of both worlds, light on digestion, refreshing and bright flavors of spring, but with a feel of decadence from the silky custard.

Guide to Plant-based Protein Supplements

One of the most frequently asked questions I receive about smoothie recipes or my smoothie bowls is about superfoods or protein powders I use. I’ve had this huge review in mind to personally taste test as many vegan/plant-based protein powders I could get my hands on, and today this post is the result of it. This Guide to Plant-based Protein Supplements, is not a review of whole food sources of protein (check back at my Q&A post for some of those sources), but a review on protein supplements.

Obviously, you all have been with me long enough to know that whole foods is top priority and numbero uno in my book when it comes to getting the most of your nutrition, but there is certainly a time and place where protein supplementation can be beneficial to ones diet. For example those who may benefit from using protein powders may include athletes or very active individuals, those transitioning into vegetarian/vegan diets, raw food dieters, if you’re on the go and need a quick snack/meal, on a specific fat loss program like many of my clients, or just want to curb a sweet tooth and bump the protein content in your favorite smoothies with some awesome flavors.
