Healthy fats are so crucial to your brain and hormonal health. It also gets an adaptogenic boost with the addition of maca powder, great for stamina, energy,…

Pesto Quinoa Pizza

This may qualify as a flatbread more than a pizza, but I enjoy it as a pizza since that’s something I don’t indulge in very often.  This recipe is gluten-free, and unusual in that it used whole, uncooked quinoa grains as the base for the crust.  The grains are soaked overnight instead, keeping all nutrients…

Strawberry and Vanilla Chia Pudding

Chia pudding is that weird vegan alternative that I used to loathe the texture of.  It was slimy and eye-bally.  I really had to start experimenting with flavors and ratios of chia seeds to liquid in order to find something that I not only want to eat, but actually crave. This combination of creamy vanilla…

The cake is sweetened with coconut sugar and fattened…

Samosa Pancake

Based on those delicious potato and pea stuffed pastries that you find in Indian restaurants.  This protein and veggie packed pancake makes a great lunch or hearty snack.  I’ve eaten them for dinner, too. Basically – I’m not going to lie – fried in olive oil which it not only absolutely delicious but also one…

Vegan Chocolate Waffles – gluten-free

Yes, this is a treat!  A more healthy, yet every bit as decadent, cacao waffle made without refined sugar, dairy, eggs or butter.  And it even has a decent hit of protein in it! Start with garbanzo bean flour, which is totally masked by the cacao in this recipe.  It adds a nice dense texture…
