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.

Chewy Superfood Hemp Protein Bars

Being athletic and living an active lifestyle, I’m always on the lookout for unique and plant-based friendly products catered towards protein density- I haven’t found too many on the market that I enjoy consuming on a daily basis just yet… so I created my own! Chewy Superfood Hemp Protein Bars have become one of my favorite go-to snacks or desserts when I’m on the go or simply want something high in protein, filling, and it satisfies my sweet tooth at the same time (win win). These protein bars are not like your standard protein bars that you find in most grocery stores, they contain only whole food ingredients that you and I both can find in our pantry!

There’s something about the main ingredients in this bar chocolate, nuts, and dried fruit that’s such a lovely combination between sweet, crunchy, chewy, and creamy. Superfoods = super nutrition from the nutrient dense plant-based proteins found in this bar. One of the superfoods I use are cherries, which happen to be one of my favorite fruits because of their anti-inflammatory power and culinary use in both sweet and savory dishes. Several other ingredients in this bar serve as binding ingredients to make this recipe super simple to make…and an added bonus, no cooking! These are all raw with no fuss of baking.

Sweet Sprouted Millet Granola

Earlier this week I shared all about the perks of soaking and sprouting nuts, seeds, grains, or legumes and I promise I’d share a recipe to put this process in motion. My favorite sprouted recipe may just be this one I’m sharing today, Sweet Sprouted Millet Granola. I use millet, which also happens to be one of my favorite grains to sprout, alongside spicy cinnamon, cardamom, walnuts, and more sweet additions later to be named.

This granola is a new favorite, I swear everytime I develop a new granola or muesli recipe I get in “food phases” and enjoy them almost daily! This granola totally has me in a food phase and if you’ve been on my instagram lately- you’d see it’s popped up every now and then. How can I not be tempted to munch on this granola daily when it’s crunchy, filling, nutty, sweet, and loaded with nutrition from the sprouted millet and ingredients used with it. Sweet Sprouted Millet Granola is incredibly delicious on it’s own as a snack, but I truly love this most with homemade almond milk, coconut milk, topped on coconut ice cream, and of course on my Stripped Green Smoothie Bowls!
