TOMATOES! I know it is a little early for a tomato post, but down here in the south we are already starting to see 90 degree weather. And with that comes the first tomatoes of the season. This recipe is my absolute favorite thing to do with tomatoes. Slow roasting the tomatoes concentrates the flavor making them extra sweet and delicious. If I had to pick my last meal before I die, it would probably be this (maybe with an artichoke on the side?).Read More
OK, I know I've said this before (like just last time I posted), but this recipe may seriously be one of my healthiest recipes. We are talking about a raw, vegan, gluten-free, nut-free, no added sugar, majorly healthy breakfast (or dessert) that is CRAZY EASY to make. And the best part of all - you can make it in five minutes the night before and just grab-and-go in the morning. Making this is a total no-brainer.Read More
When you think about chips and dip, you don't exactly think healthy. But this might be the healthiest recipe I've ever posted. Seriously. Other than a tablespoon of oil and a pinch of salt, the only ingredients are vegetables. And somehow this two-ingredient healthy dip tastes completely indulgent. Put this caramelized onion spread on toast, veggie burgers, cheese, fruit... (might I recommend gruyere, fig spread, caramelized onion jam grilled cheese?) It tastes good on everything. Trust me.

Raw cake always seems to be too good to be true. Healthy cake!? This one tastes like a creamsicle, but the ingredients are barely more than nuts, honey, and fruit. No matter how many times I make a raw cake, I am always surprised that it can taste this good and be this good for me. And remembering to soak the cashews is the only prep-time. Making the cake only requires about 10 minutes total. So if you are looking for an easy dessert that is healthy enough you could eat it for breakfast, look no further.Read More
I feel like I've indulged so much already this holiday season that all the sweets aren't even tempting anymore. Now all I want is something healthy that is hearty enough to fill me up. This recipe is the perfect way to eat clean and still feel satisfied. And it just happens to be vegan and gluten-free so it is likely to please anyone at your holiday table no matter what their diet may be.Read More
Growing up as a vegetarian on Thanksgiving, there was always Chelsea's food and everyone else's food. And while I do like steamed vegetables, it seemed like that was always the only option for me other than rice. As an adult, I love having Thanksgiving as an opportunity to make vegetarian dishes that the whole family (meat-eaters included) will enjoy. This Butternut Squash Orecchiette is the perfect side dish to win over any picky eater. I have included the vegan and gluten free variations in the recipe as well so that everyone can enjoy it.Read More
Weekends are for waffles. I LOVE waking up on a Saturday and making coffee and waffles and starting the morning slowly. These Lemon Poppyseed Waffles are a great way to switch up your waffle routine. And while I like the taste of real butter and milk for mine, this recipe works just as well with coconut oil and nut milk for vegans. And while I love to save waffles for the weekend, you can freeze them and then toast them for a quick weekday breakfast too!Read More
