Vegan Banana Bread Protein Pancakes

Breakfast is by far my favorite meal of the day. Many days I go to bed already excited to wake up and eat my first meal. This is especially true when I know I’m having pancakes in the morning. There’s just nothing better than a nice fluffy stack of pancakes on a Sunday morning. As…

Vegan Protein Cookie Dough for One

As a vegan competitive bodybuilder, people often ask me how I manage to get enough protein in my diet. I follow a macro-based approach, where my coach gives me a certain amount of protein, carbs, and fats to eat each day. As far as the actual foods I use to hit those goals, I choose…

Quick and Easy Vegan Corn Fritters

Let’s talk appetizers. Everybody loves finger foods, but for hosts they can be a nightmare. What can you make that everyone will enjoy? Does it fit the rest of the menu? Will it be too filling? Not to mention trying to please a wide variety of ages. If you are hosting a dinner that both…

Cranberry Oatmeal Scones With Vanilla Glaze

Does anybody else always seem to have a bag of dried cranberries in the pantry leftover from Thanksgiving? No matter what time of year it is, those darn craisins just continue to sit there. You don’t even remember what recipe you bought them for; you probably just threw a handful on a salad or something….

Banana Nut Pancakes (Vegan)

Pancakes are my favorite food of all time. They’re fluffy, sweet, and come in a wide variety of flavors! Not to mention the endless combinations of toppings you can add. Syrup, whipped cream, chocolate, fruit… you name it, I have put it on a pancake! Part of the reason I love pancakes so much is…

Vegan Blueberry Lemon Waffles

Pancakes or waffles? It’s a debate as old as time. Some like the softness of pancakes, while other prefer the crisp edges of waffles. Personally, I have always been on team pancakes, because they remind me of the Saturday mornings of my childhood. However, since purchasing this mini waffle iron while Black Friday shopping, I…

Sautéed Garlic Lemon Kale With Pine Nuts

I love vegetables. Bell peppers, carrots, cucumbers, tomatoes… they’re all so refreshing and delicious! There is one category of veggies I don’t eat too often though, and it just happens to be the most important: greens. Dark green leafy vegetables are great sources of nutrition, according to the USDA. They’re low calorie, yet packed with…

Blueberry Almond Scones With Almond Glaze (Vegan)

Scones are underrated. You see them at coffee shops, and maybe enjoy one with your afternoon tea if you’re British, but for the most part, they’re just not popular. I used to agree with the general consensus that scones are boring until, one day, I actually tried one. Panera was out of my go-to cherry…

Baked Double Chocolate Donuts (Vegan)

Cake donuts may be less popular than their fried counterparts, but they’ve always had a special place in my heart. I definitely have my dad to thank for that, since he almost exclusively ate old fashioned donuts when I was growing up. Yes, plain, unglazed, old-fashioned cake donuts. He loves them, and so do I….

Creamy Cauliflower Coconut Soup (Vegan)

Soup is one of those foods that just gets overlooked. Nobody dislikes it, but it’s also not anyone’s favorite food. Part of the reason for this is because soup is seasonal. It’s great during the colder months of the year, but not ideal for the summer. We all know that. In my opinion, however, there’s…
