Creamy Homemade Cashew Milk

  Have you noticed how much the dairy-free milk industry is growing lately? More and more Americans are buying vegan milk alternatives or ordering non-dairy options at their favorite coffee shop. The crazy thing is that most of these people aren’t vegan, nor are they lactose intolerant. A lot of people are purchasing milk alternatives…

Chocolate Chip Granola Bars (Gluten-Free/Vegan)

  Every generation has certain foods that remind them of their childhood. People who grew up in the 80’s remember eating Smurf Berry Crunch cereal for breakfast. 90’s babies ate Trix yogurt. As someone who was born in the 2000’s, I can confidently say that Quaker chewy chocolate chip granola bars were one of the…

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…

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 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…

Baked Pumpkin Donuts With Cinnamon Sugar (Vegan)

One of my fondest childhood memories took place during my family’s annual visit to a local farm, where we picked pumpkins, navigated through corn mazes, and went on hayrides. Every year, as we pulled up to the farm, the aroma of freshly made pumpkin donuts from  the donut stand would hit me, and I would…
