Meatlessballs

July 11, 2017

Meatlessballs, are another crowd pleaser that you can proudly serve to anyone! Especially to friends and family who are transitioning, or even those who don’t (yet!) eat a plant based diet.  My family is used to getting together and celebrating over an italian feast, and for my Dad, that always included meatballs.  He went fully plant based earlier this year though, and I wanted to make him a replacement to…

Healthy Apple Pie

March 14, 2017

Yup, Apple pie!  Truly delicious, truly healthy, apple pie! The credit for this one goes to three people, Cathy Fischer for the crust, Dr. Fuhrman for the filling, and our friend Jenn for having the genius idea to put the two of them together.  I’m really glad she did too, because this is a great recipe that everyone will love.  The fact that it’s healthy is just a bonus! In fact,…

Baked fries?

January 12, 2017

Can we still call them fries if they aren’t fried?  Or are they french baked potatoes?  That sounds like something totally different….   Anyway, these are super simple and very tasty, no matter what you want to call them.   This seriously couldn’t be more simple.  We really just cut some potatoes, arranged them carefully so they don’t touch on parchment paper, and baked them in the oven. They could…

Vegetable Stir Fry

November 7, 2016

We love this stir fry recipe in our house! It’s a fairly easy to make on a week night, and can really satisfy my craving for Thai take out.  The most time consuming part is chopping all of the vegetables, and it’s really not so bad…  The roasted cashews add a lot of flavor.  A LOT!  So don’t skip that step, it’s totally worth it, and really makes the dish.  Oh, and the…

BBQ Pulled Jackfruit

August 2, 2016

  This open face jackfruit BBQ sandwich was SO delicious!! What is Jackfruit? It’s a fruit.  Seriously, look it up.  When it’s fully ripe it’s sweet, and I’ve heard it somewhat resembles pineapple.  When it’s young, or not yet fully ripe, it’s not as sweet, has a mild flavor, and great texture that makes it a really good substitute for beans, lentils, tofu, and even meat in many dishes.  It works perfectly in…

Black Rice Cereal

March 3, 2016

This cereal is a sweet, tasty breakfast treat that everyone seems to like! I usually make a double batch of it so we can just heat it up quickly on busy school mornings. I got the recipe from Dr. Fuhrman’s email newsletter a couple of years back, but it can also be found in his book Super Immunity. A few notes about the ingredients: *  Make sure you use short…

Lentil Shepherd’s pie

January 1, 2015

Dr. Fuhrman emailed out this recipe in his newsletter and I was really excited to try it!  When the weather gets cold, I really enjoy really hot, comfort food and I think this recipe satisfies both while being totally plant based.  His recipe can be found here. Enjoy!  We loved this recipe and all four of us almost ate the entire thing for dinner one night!   Lentil Shepherd’s pie…

January 20, 2014

  As if Black Bean soup isn’t already good enough, I added Kale and Mushrooms to push it over the top!! I started with a Black Bean soup recipe from allrecipes.com (link), and changed it up a bit.  What I ended up with is below, and it’s been a huge hit with our friends and families so far!  It’s a hearty soup that covers 4 of the 6 GBOMBS (Greens, Beans, Onions,…

Banana Apple Oatmeal

December 29, 2013

We love Oatmeal for breakfast, especially when it’s loaded up with lots of fresh fruit.  We used to add fruit at the table, to each of our bowls individually, until I tried adding fruit while the oatmeal is cooking…  The result is AMAZING!!  The flavor and natural sweetness from the fruit is absorbed into the oats as they cook, making every bite absolutely delicious! Prep time: 10 min Serves: 6…
