Today I’m sharing with you all a new recipe (and new favorite) alternative to yogurt sans dairy, Banana Yogurt! This may be the only yogurt recipe you’ll ever need… bold statement I know, but it’s that good. Living dairy free, yogurt has been one of the few things I’ve missed due to it’s versatility, taste, and texture. Sure there are other non-dairy yogurt alternatives out there, but none I’ve enjoyed as much. Banana Yogurt is filled with deliciously simple whole food ingredients and takes less than 10 minutes to make, which is perfect for a quick and nutrient dense breakfast in the morning.
Banana Yogurt contains healthy fats from creamy cashews, fiber and protein from ground chia seeds, and best of all the banana makes this yogurt thick, creamy, and naturally sweet just like most yogurts. My favorite way to enjoy this recipe is by adding crunchy granola on top such as staples in my pantry, Maple Banana Nut Granola and Nourishing Muesli.
Let’s just take a moment away from reality and dream of white sand beaches, warm breezes, and cool ocean water, all while enjoying this Tropical Superfood Smoothie Bowl. Today I’m sharing with you all a variation of my Stripped Green Smoothie Bowl using delicious tropical sweet fruits with some of my favorite superfoods on top.
I don’t know about you and where you’re located, but here in Nashville it’s been cold, rainy, and a bit gloomy. Couple that with my admiration of spring and summer (what can I say, I’m a Cancer girl), this smoothie was the perfect way to bring me into a summer moment. As we’ve talked about before, smoothie bowls have been my favorite thing besides just drinking my smoothies. They’re super thick and creamy, filled with raw fruits and veggies, superfoods, healthy fats, and plant-protein. It’s designed to be a meal in a bowl- and a delicious one at that.
There’s a local thai restaurant here in Nashville that serves pad thai dish that I love; I was inspired by that delicious dish to recreate my own vegetarian and gluten free friendly version. Peanut Tempeh Stir-Fry with Soba Noodles is filled with sweet, spicy, and salty flavors with chewy and crunchy bits. It’s great to make ahead of time in large batches for leftovers but also quick enough to make for dinner- it’s deliciously simple.
This dish contains heaps of fibrous veggies, protein rich tempeh, healthy fats, and manganese rich soba noodles. Stir-frys are another one of my go-to dinners especially towards the end of the week when usually I’m running low on produce and groceries. I’ll simply use frozen veggies I have on hand like carrots, peas, red bell peppers, corn and broccoli, heat up the skillet with sesame oil, garlic and onions, and whip up a stir-fry on the fly (ha).
I’m excited to share with you all one of my favorite go-to “recipes” that I’ve been eating for years and finally came up with the perfect way to describe it, the Nourish Bowl. When I first shared one of my Nourish Bowls on Instagram, it became one of my most popular posts for good reason… it’s easy and so delicious! The root of the Nourish Bowl is choosing nutrient dense veggies, fruits/carbohydrates, healthy fats, and quality proteins to make a filling meal in a bowl.
Without fail, this is one of my staple recipes I eat at least once a day. I think the rest of you will catch on and soon become lovers of this “recipe” too! So first things first, what is a Nourish Bowl? Basically it’s what I call a huge salad bowl with the base being dark leafy greens, topped with a protein, a carbohydrate, and a healthy fat. It’s a perfect meal-in-a-bowl and completely nourishing when you’re choosing your toppings wisely.
Happy New Year everyone! I hope everyone had a fun yet relaxing start to the New Year last week- I took some much needed time away from work, blogging, social media, and the like to re-energize, center, and refresh my focus for the new year. It was absolutely wonderful and I have some EXCITING things in store for you all this year, just wait! I’m back today to start off the New Year with a meal that I’ve been lovin’ the past week, Black-eyed Peas and Kale Soup, a traditional new year food.
The most traditional meal to eat on New Years Day is the classic dish of black-eyed peas served with greens, ham/pork, and sauerkraut. I’m turning this traditional meal into a vegan friendly soup, Black-eyed Peas and Kale Soup. It’s warming, comforting, incredibly healthy, delicious, and leaves you feeling satisfied and ready to tackle the new year ahead of you.
