5 breakfasts, each 5 minutes or less

Today’s post is all about mornings! We all know how chaotic it can be trying to get out of the house on time. I struggle to get to my 8:00 a.m. class on time so I can only imagine having to make sure three kids are dressed and fed and also out of the house by 7:45. So, I’ve decided to share my go-to breakfasts with you all today! The best part? They’re all made in five minutes or less!  Continue reading “5 breakfasts, each 5 minutes or less”

Raw Zoodles with Tomato Sauce & Vegan Parm

Story time! My grandma got me a veggie spiraling tool for Christmas and I had yet to even open the package until today. I wanted Italian food but I also didn’t want a heavy meal either. Solution? Zoodles.

I’ve had them before but I had never attempted them on my own and now I don’t know why I was so scared of them. This was honestly easier than boiling water and making sure regular noodles don’t stick to the pot.

I sent a picture of the final project to my friend who immediately informed me that I must post this recipe, so here we are. I made this up completely on the fly and it turned out to be pretty close to perfection.

This dish is full of vegetables, completely raw, fresh, light and perfect for a picnic outside!  Continue reading “Raw Zoodles with Tomato Sauce & Vegan Parm”

All That and S’More!

Do you guys know how long it has been since I’ve posted a recipe on here?!? Way too long. But not as long as it’s been since I’ve eaten a marshmallow. I finally found a brand of vegan marshmallows carried by Thrive Market (link). I opened my box of goodies and immediately began thinking of what I could do with them.

 I’m not going to talk your ear off about how good these are, I’ll just give you the recipe so you can see (taste?) for yourself.  Continue reading “All That and S’More!”

Cinnamon Rolls

I’m sorry that I didn’t come up with a more fun name for these… but let’s just be real: they’re cinnamon rolls, why mess with a good thing? 

To be completely honest with you, I thought these were going to turn out as a major failure since I’ve never attempted homemade cinnamon rolls, but I surprised myself! Since a friend of mine (you know who you are) is bugging me for the recipe, I figured I might as well share it with all of you!Screen Shot 2017-03-15 at 8.28.41 AM Continue reading “Cinnamon Rolls”

Every American girl needs a Dutch best friend. Why? So you can turn her smoothie recipes into cookies. My friend Denise runs a blog often featuring Amy as well as some of the best smoothie recipes I’ve ever tried. Earlier this week, she texted me this:

Strawberry Coconut Cake

You guys. I am so excited about this cake. I haven’t had strawberry cake in so long it’s crazy. My family has this strawberry angel food cake we always have for my mom’s birthday but it’s not vegan or gluten free, so I had to get creative and this was the result. I’m not going to lie to you, I liked it better than than the other.

Vegan GF Chocolate Chip Cookies

What’s the best thing about being vegan? Well, besides the whole animal rights thing and environmental impacts I’m going to have to go with YOU CAN EAT ANY KIND OF BATTER YOU MAKE AND NOT WORRY ABOUT GETTING SALMONELLA!!!

I’m 99% sure you have all had chocolate chip cookies, so I’m not sure how much I can talk about these without you being all, duh Jordyn, we know cookies are good. So, I’ll just say one thing: GF baking tends to produce bricks if you’re not careful, but these are light as a feather. I promise. Here we go!  Continue reading “Vegan GF Chocolate Chip Cookies”

Valentine’s Day Strawberry Banana Smoothie Bowl

This recipe is dedicated to all the single ladies! Trust me, being single while making this is better than having to share it!! Thank me later.

Ok, so I wasn’t planning on sharing this recipe (that I totally made up on the spot because I didn’t have blueberries to make the smoothie I wanted UGGGHHH) but it turned out really well so… why not??

I’m actually not sure if I should call this a smoothie or ice cream… or as we vegans like to call it nice cream. The base is Coconut Bliss Vanilla Island, so it’s more of a shake but whatever. Smoothie bowl.
