Kale Chips

So I have this theory: no one actually likes kale chips. And I mean, compared to their delicious potato counterpart, it’s really no competition- but not everyone can eat a bag of Lays, and more to the point, not everyone wants to eat a bag of Lays. Cue the entrance of our green chewy savior….

Banana Bread

I eat a lot of bananas. Unfortunately, I can’t always get to them before they brown, and this has resulted in a rather large pile of suggestively shaped bricks sitting in my freezer. After trial and error with many, many different batters, I finally hit the jackpot. And the jackpot happens to be gluten free….

Almond Flour Biscuits

Now before you start thinking to yourself “who the hell still eats biscuits in this day and age”, let me explain myself. If you’re celiac, gluten-free by choice, or you just want to feel good- plain and simple- there is no more diverse food item than the biscuit. You’ll find this gem under an over-easy…

Lazy Sunday Breakfast

I wake up every morning stupidly excited to have this gluten free breakfast spread to kick start my day. Ingredients: – Half an avocado – Some sort of sweet fruit to balance the flavors – 1 almond flour biscuit – 1 egg – 1/2 teaspoon of nutritional yeast flakes – Salt and Pepper to taste…

Vegan Oh Henry Bars

Just in time for Halloween! Fudge, peanuts, caramel and chocolate- the whole shebang boys and girls. So consider this little adventure a remix of Oh Henry’s. While there are tons of recipes online for “homemade OH Henry Bars”, none of them use the fudge middle (which I mean, just doesn’t make sense, the fudge is such a…

Zero Waste Pumpkin Spice

I’ll spare you the “white-girl, starbucks” jokes and cut to the chase. Pumpkin spice is good shit. Not only is it fundamental for pumpkin pie, but it just compliments about anything baking-wise you could come up with. Pancakes, banana bread, cookies, and muffins- trust me, this spice does it all. But being zero-waste, I had…

Salted Caramel Pumpkin Seeds

Ok, so a few years ago, a roommate of mine left behind this Pampered Chef caramel sprinkle. The only reason I’m providing the link for this is because I’m pretty sure their caramel sprinkle is the best thing I have ever had on pumpkin seeds. Alas, all good things must come to an end, and despite…

Vegan Shepherds Pie

Okay, so from the feature picture, you can already tell that my mashed potato portions are way off. This was no accident. I love mashed potatoes. Like most of the recipes I feature, they can be modified for different diets. This one, for example, could easily be paleo, without the lentils and with meat instead…

Baked Chick Peas

I’m not sure a recipe gets more simple than this… Except for kale chips. Those were pretty easy too. Ingredients: Canned chick peas, drained, as many cans as your heart desires (with consideration for your supply of pans) Some sort of oil (avocado, olive, etc) Salt, pepper, assorted spices Instructions: Preheat oven to 450. Mix…

Peanut Butter Cookies

Keep your love of PB cookies, cut the extra sugar, gluten, hell, cut the extra everything. Let’s do this. How does four ingredients sound for minimalist? Hard to believe, I know- guess you guys will have to trust me on this one. Prep Time: 5-10 Minutes Cook Time: 10-15 Minutes Yield: 12 Ingredients: 1 1/3…

Spaghetti Squash Pasta

For all you gluten-wise eaters out there, you can thank me later- spaghetti squash is the best thing since almond flour biscuits. Light in texture and absorbent with sauces, this vegetable replacement for pasta hasn’t failed me in a recipe yet. My favorite use is vegetarian Pad Thai; the squash soaks up the sauce and pairs…

What About Hunting?

Call it lack of ambition, but meat hasn’t been a huge part of my diet this summer. Not only is it a pain to find without plastic wrapping, but the truth of the matter is that I just don’t eat that much meat. I’ve had moral problems with it for years, but the kind of…
