Also known as Coconut Five Ways… this Coconut Baked Oatmeal is a satisfying breakfast for snow days, lazy days, and even brunch with friends. Totally meal preppable, of course, because I love to help you cook once and eat twice, thrice, and more throughout the week.
Raise your hand if you’ve ever worked through an illness. (Guilty!) You have a horrible cold, you’re not feeling so well, but you don’t have any more sick days so you just kind of stare at your computer all day pretending you’ll be productive.
Or instead, ever had coworkers that come in when they should definitely have stayed home? There’s always one. And sometimes it’s you.
It’s part of life—if we’re going out into the world, we’re going to encounter germs, and the best thing we can do is to build up our immunity to help avoid getting sick.
Happy (almost) Thanksgiving! This pumpkin custard dessert is a really simple recipe that takes just 10 minutes to put together — the longest part is cooling the mixture until it sets. But it’ll be worth the wait, I promise!
Affectionately known as “goth balls” — here’s another spooky Halloween snack. I don’t love energy bites that are date-based, and they all seem to be, so I whipped up my own batch with the jar of black sesame paste I still have yet to finish.
I’m really getting into the hokey Halloween recipes this year. And with a jar of black sesame paste to use up, you better believe there’s more spooky goth treats coming your way.
The title of this recipe is a mouthful, but you won’t care when… you get a mouthful. *badum chhh* I’ll be here all weekend, folks.
This is a pretty simple recipe and, as usual, meal preppable! It’s a good transition into fall, when Autumn Equinox has passed and you want to wear sweaters and boots but you can still sunbathe on the lawn. Best of both worlds, IMO!
Chickpeas are like cashews to me, in that they’re so versatile and you can use them in so many applications! You can make hummus, roast it for a snack, throw it on a salad, scramble it up like eggs, make a soy-free miso paste if you’re crafty (and patient), have it in pasta form, make falafel… we don’t often think of them as a dessert ingredient though. Aside from dessert hummus (don’t knock it til you try it), we can also make gluten-free blondies with chickpeas!
You’ve probably heard the phrase EAT THE RAINBOW! Not to be confused with Skittles’ “Taste the Rainbow” slogan… this is the exact opposite of eating chemical/sugar-laden candies. It’s about having a variety of natural colors in our diet, because the more color means the more phytonutrients, and the more phytonutrients, the better for our bodies!
You know how much I love meal prep, and this recipe is a perfect summer meal to have ready when you come home from a day at the beach! Bonus points if you have a grill to toss the burgers on and really take advantage of the outdoors before the cold eventually creeps in.
