Healthy Maple Almond Butter Granola

Granola is one of those foods that’s definitely worth making at home. It requires minimal effort and can be made in huge batches, enough to last for weeks at a time! Plus, you can customize the flavor and ingredients if you make it yourself. Store-bought granola is often filled with refined sugar, unhealthy oils, and…

Vegan Mango Coconut Mousse

During the summer, I hate turning on the oven. It makes the house way too hot, and it’s honestly just not worth it. I prefer eating cool, refreshing meals like salads, sandwiches, and wraps! The same goes for dessert: I’d so much rather have something cold than go through the trouble of baking something. My…

Vegan Banana Bread Cinnamon Rolls With Cream Cheese Icing

As a food blogger, sometimes it’s hard to come up with unique recipes. It often seems like everything has been done before! I don’t want to make my recipes so out-of-the-ordinary that no one will eat them, but I also don’t want them to be super basic. After all, does the internet really need another…

Crispy Garlic Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Some foods need a little extra love to make them taste good. Brussels sprouts are one of those foods. They tend to get a bad rap, as people always make jokes about how bad they are. The truth, however, is that brussels sprouts can be really tasty, as long as you prepare them correctly! The…

Vegan Baked Matcha Cheesecake With Oreo Crust

This summer, I am going to be traveling to Japan alone for the first time. This marks a very special moment in my life, as it represents me embracing my Japanese heritage. For the majority of my childhood, I resented the Japanese holidays we celebrated at home and was embarrassed of the bento boxes my…

High Protein TVP Tacos (Vegan)

Textured vegetable protein is an underrated ingredient. If you’ve never heard of it before, TVP is dehydrated soy protein that has a texture exactly like ground beef when rehydrated. Some vegans argue that it is overly processed, or that soy is bad for you, but TVP is actually a very healthy food. Just because a…

Vegan Tempeh Bacon

There’s a million responses I get when I tell people I’m vegan, but the most annoying one is when people say “But what about bacon?” Honestly, it’s incredibly rude to just discredit someone’s beliefs with a joke. Most ethical vegans care very deeply about animals and don’t feel that this topic is a laughing matter….

Brownie Bottom Banana Bread Bars

Happy Easter Sunday! I hope all of you are enjoying the holiday and spending it with your families. This year, I am spending my Easter in Los Angeles! I’m here for spring break to visit a few colleges, as well as enjoy all the vegan food. This afternoon, I plan to go to the weekly…

Vegan Strawberry Muffins With Lemon Glaze

Last week, I completed my school’s leadership program for juniors. To celebrate, everyone in the program brought in food, and we all had a big breakfast together. I signed up to bring blueberry muffins, since I knew I had a bag of blueberries in my freezer. But when I went to make the muffins, I…

Vegan Trail Mix Biscotti

Biscotti are unlike any other type of cookie. They’re twice-baked, extra crunchy, and perfect for dipping in coffee! Traditionally, they’re made with almonds, but you can use the same technique to make any biscotti flavor you want. Some popular additions include nuts, dried fruit, and my personal favorite: chocolate. After I learned how to make…
