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?

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.

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.

Lentil Taco Soup

I have been watching a lot of Master Chef lately. What can be more addicting than watching Gordon Ramsey yell at chefs? Honestly, I’ve had a dream of being on a cooking show and it’s brought back a lot of inspiration to continue cooking.

I spent the second half of 2018 traveling and enjoying visiting areas all over the US. However, I was not cooking as much and gained some weight. I felt disconnected from my purpose and traveling helped me come back home. Luckily, I always have my tools to come back to in order to get back on track.

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 Stir Fry

Spaghetti Squash Stir Fry

When you think of stir fry, you think healthy.

A rainbow of vegetables mixed with noodles (or rice), protein, and sauce in a bowl.

On the surface, it seems like a balanced dish.

Now, you see stir fry in food courts and all over the fast food scene.

Stir fry, which is a healthy dish has been saturated by the market.

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.

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...
