These vegan tempeh meatballs are simple to make and incredibly versatile. They’re also packed with plant-based protein! Use them for an instant protein boost in any grain bowl or pasta dish. There’s no easy comfort food meal that I turn to more regularly than spaghetti and meatballs. In fact, I’ve frequently joked that my 2020 was sponsored by Gardein meatballs (it really wasn’t, but it could have been). I had more dinners of Gardein meatballs, pasta, and marinara than any other food. These…

The first time I heard about dry brushing, all I could think was “Why are these people brushing their skin? I’m doing good to brush my teeth and change out of my yoga pants.” Never would I have guessed that it would become one of my favorite wellness practices, but it absolutely is. Although it’s most […]

That’s the beauty of these chicken caesar wraps – they’re mostly made from leftovers, which means […]

Herbed tofu feta cheese is a flavorful, healthful, DIY vegan take on traditional feta cheese. It’s a perfect addition to any grain bowl, salad, wrap, or pasta dish! It’s a snap to make and is easy to store. As I continue to wade through a long, murky period of recipe writer’s block, I find myself relying a lot on every day staples. By “staples,” I mean good dressings, dips, simple whole grains, pots of beans or lentils. Foods that aren’t quite a meal…
