Spinach and Artichoke Dip Stuffed Mushrooms

Spinach and Artichoke Dip Stuffed Mushrooms

One of my favorite dips is spinach artichoke dip. However, it is full of mayonnaise with soybean oil and processed Parmesan cheese. It is seemingly healthy with the spinach in there. Some recipes also use mozzarella cheese, sour cream, or cream cheese to create a stomach monstrosity. As Redefining All Diets, I found a healthier way to create my favorite dish from home using a cashew base for cheese, nutritional yeast for the flavor, and vegeneise to cut a portion of the unhealthy fat. I added an extra veggie kick by stuffing it into a mushroom. This also gives it more protein to make this a well-rounded dish. You won’t even miss the meat with how filling this is.

Banh Mi Pizza

Banh Mi Pizza

Growing up, I lived on pizza.

When time was in a pinch, my parents would order pizza.

When I was in marching band and we had late night practices, we would order pizza.

When I would go out with my friends, we would eat pizza.

After a late night on the town, I would be craving pizza.

Everywhere you look, pizza is at every corner.

Pizza has become a staple of the American diet being eaten for breakfast, lunch, AND dinner.

Homemade Chicken and Jackfruit Enchiladas

Homemade Chicken and Jackfruit Enchiladas

It's more fun when you bring more people into the kitchen to share a meal with you.

My sister brought over some jackfruit a few days ago and I thought to myself, "What the hell do I want to do with this?"

I wasn't in the mood for BBQ since I had that the night before and I didn't want it Asian style since I'm making bahn mi pizza later this week.

After a few minutes on Google for ideas, the idea of enchiladas came up.

But not just any enchiladas...

Take-out Fake-out Chipotle Burrito Bowl

Take-out Fake-out Chipotle Burrito Bowl

Want to eat Chipotle Mexican Grill without having to go out and order it? Try my #chefdux Cheezy Beans and Greens Veggie Burrito Bowl. I made this recipe myself from scratch because I wanted to take a shot at making a healthy burrito bowl without all the carbs, cheese, and tortillas/chips we typically eat when we go to Chipotle. My intention is to prove that it is possible to eat healthily and crowd out the unhealthy foods while still maintaining flavor.
