The Best Homemade Granola Ever!

The Best Homemade Granola Ever!

Are you someone who is always in a hurry to get out the door in the morning?

raises hand 🖐

Growing up, I was rushing for the school bus in the morning on a regular basis. My bag would be packed the night before, as I get up at the ass crack of dawn. I quickly brush my hair, brush my teeth, throw my clothes on, grab my shit downstairs, and rush out the front door.

The issue here is that I was either not eating breakfast or I would eat a bag of dry cereal. Even worse, a pop tart. By afternoon, I was crashing and was unable to pay attention in class during the last two periods of the day.

Soup is a food I can eat any type of year.

Especially now that it’s cold out, I crave soup for every single meal.

I could eat soup for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Soup is a food that can be readily available.

However, the canned and restaurant versions are all full of CRAP

Spaghetti Squash Pad Thai

Spaghetti Squash Pad Thai

I freaking love Thai food. I’ll go out with my friends to a Thai restaurant and I will order the pad thai almost every time. Lately, I’ve noticed that when I eat it, I feel an immense amount of bloating and inflammation. It’s to the point where I’ve had to keel over trying to walk out of the restaurant. This is followed by immense amounts of constipation and gas with more stomach aches.

Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

I freaking love making these cookies! I made them for the first time for a Serendipity Expo in December of 2017. They were a huge hit! They are so easy to prepare and are much healthier than traditional cookies. Every ingredient is picked out and mixed in with love in order to make the perfect cookies. I started sharing them along with my gingersnap cookies at various music festivals because I desire to spread the message of being able to have healthy food wherever you go. With that being said, I have decided to release the recipe to the masses, so you can have these delicious treats for yourself when I'm not around.

Tuna Lettuce Wraps

Tuna Lettuce Wraps

What a beautiful day to try some delicious veggies from my local CSA. I'm so excited that every share is packed with fresh grown veggies from a local farm that taste way better than conventional. I think I'm hooked on these veggies! You can go to localharvest.org to find a local farm near you to get started on these! Today's delicious recipe is tuna lettuce wraps using veggies from the farm. This quick, easy meal is great for those days when you feel like you have a million things to do, but want to have a quick and healthy meal.

Cauliflower Fried Rice

Cauliflower Fried Rice

Rice is always a staple when you go to a Chinese or Japanese restaurant. Most times, white rice is included with your dish. You can even upgrade to fried rice for an extra $1. Typically, this is fried in canola oil, which comes from the rapeseed plant, one of the most genetically modified plants on the market. Not only are you consuming trans fats due to the amount of oil typically put in this dish at restaurants, but you are getting high amounts of sodium from the soy sauce they put in. Typically, soy sauce contains ~900 mg sodium PER TABLESPOON.  White rice has had the bran, fiber, B-vitamins, and all the external fiber removed so all that's left is a pure carbohydrate. The outer shell is removed on white rice, which removes the natural oils found in brown rice, which makes white rice have a longer shelf life. While this is nice that you can keep white rice longer, it has a high glycemic index, which turns it rapidly into sugar. This will lead to a big boost of energy followed by a big crash pretty quickly afterward. Talk about a salty, nutritionless monstrosity. The great this is that you can make fried rice at home using any other type of grain, fry it in sesame oil, and use Tamari in place of the soy sauce to make it completely gluten-free and soy free! Plus, you get the nutrition from the peas and carrots with a healthy dose of saturated fat from the oil. Feel free to add whatever meat you like to make it a complete meal that will leave you full of energy and begging for seconds.

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.

Oh Shit! Pasta

Oh Shit! Pasta

Sometimes, we have those days where we are like "Oh shit! I don't know what to make for dinner!" 🙈

Who does this resonate with? 

For a lot of people that means going out to eat, but as a cook, I tend to keep more than enough food in the house.

If you are like that too and have had enough takeout food, take the time to see what ingredients lay around the kitchen.

You might find some yummy food laying around your freezer or a bunch of random ingredients in the fridge.

This is a great opportunity to experiment and use your creative side to make a spontaneous, impromptu meal. 😋

Chicken Zucchini Noodle Casserole

Chicken Zucchini Noodle Casserole

I love outdoing myself every time I create a new recipe. I have been preparing a lot of vegan cheeses lately. This time, I found something a bit different. I am so proud of myself for meal planning again. I’ve been writing weekly meal logs and holding myself accountable for my meals. I’m really excited to be doing this as well in my upcoming challenge I’m holding in the next upcoming weeks. I’ve found all these awesome meals over the past few years and I am finally using them. Now, I’m bringing them to life!
