Butternut Squash and Kale Salad (V,GF)

Kale is all the rage these days, and for good reason. Kale’s nutrient offering qualifies for the title of superfood, while at the same time it has very few calories. Throw in some butternut squash, nature’s gift to winter, and you’ve got an amazingly delicious and nutricious meal. Another reason this salad is great is […]

Tofu Fried Rice (V,GF)

Is there actually something healthy that has the word “fried” in it?!! Well, yes, there is. This is one of my favorite meals because it’s easy, I can toss in whatever veggies I feel like, and for whatever reason, it just makes me happy. As I was about to publish this, I noticed in the […]

But that’s the beauty of the Shepherd’s Pie, you can put whatever vegetables you like in it.

Sweet Potato Quinoa Kale Cakes (V,GF)

This recipe combines our favorite potato with the wonders of quinoa – one of the few plant versions of a complete protein – and kale – the very definition of a superfood with so much iron, calcium, omega-3s, and vitamins A and C, you’re practically eating a multivitamin! And, these cakes taste good. I know, I said that already, but it’s not worth eating if it doesn’t taste good, right? It’s the most important part.
