Lentil Shepherds Pie

Lentils were something I had not even heard of (along with the term “legume”) years ago, but now they are a staple is our pantry because, not only are they a nutritious super food, cheap and delicious, they are so easy to cook and don’t require the preparation and soaking like beans. Lentils are high in fiber, protein, and iron and are great for battling some of America’s biggest health epidemics, such as obesity, diabetes, heart disease, high cholesterol, IBS, and even fatigue.

About a week ago I posted a picture of some food I put together that actually came out to be a delicious and rather healthy meal that I just HAD to share! I am the queen at vegan-izing meals, especially the greasy, fattening foods I loved growing up! But with the summer creeping up on me, I thought I should also focus a little more on my health and a little less on making vegan fried chicken, you feel me? Continue reading

Vegan Hushpuppies

I am going to be honest… this is a recipe that I usually would just whip up on a limb and it always turned out great. When we I decided to make it a recipe and measured everything, it seemed impossible to get just right. Isn’t it funny how life works that way? I honestly figured this would be one of the simplest and quicker recipes, but turned out to give me more trouble than I’m sure hush puppies are typically worth. But after making a million horrendous batches (after never having a bad batch before that), I couldn’t give up. They were daggum’ HUSHPUPPIES for that matter. Surely I was going to figure out what I was doing wrong.  Continue reading

Dairy-Free Whipped Cream

This is probably the easiest recipe to date. Just 3 ingredients and about 5 minutes and you have yourself some homemade, delicious, dairy-free whipped cream!

Yes, you can buy coconut whipped cream from the store, but you’re going to pay for it and truthfully… you won’t be saving much time either because this is SO EASY! Continue reading
