• Follow Your Heart makes some fantastic foods for those of us on restricted diets.  Their newest creation is a vegan egg that is free of soy, dairy, egg, gluten, and nuts.  It comes in this cute little box that looks like an egg carton, but the contents are yellow powder in a bag.  I like […]

  • Can you tell that we have been on a sweet potato kick lately in our house?  We buy them much more often than we used to because our son LOVES them.  As a result, I am constantly looking for new and fun ways to make them so that we’re not just eating baked sweet potatoes […]

  • I like to have some meaty protein in the mornings between when I have breakfast and lunch.  This mid-morning snack helps me get through the first half of the day without feeling completely famished!  Since processed meats like bacon and sausages are usually very salty and can be expensive if you buy the good quality […]

  • gluten-free-vegan-savory-pie

    I am always looking for new ways to get vegetables into my diet.  I want to keep things interesting, don’t you?  No one likes to be bored with their food!  This savory vegetable pie was created when I had a slew of vegetables in the fridge and was craving something that felt like comfort food […]

  • A little while ago, I posted a recipe for my Buckwheat Pancakes, but they are not the only kind we make at my house.  I love these quinoa pancakes with blueberries since they feel homey and satisfying at the same time.  The blueberries are optional, but I feel like they add a little something extra […]

  • gluten-free-vegan-muffin-easy

    Both corn and millet are gluten free grains that can be used for a variety of recipes.  My Millet-Corn Muffins are a quick and easy option for breakfasts, snacks, or desserts.  I sometimes have them for breakfast with a side of turkey bacon or a little yogurt.  Other times, they really hit the spot as […]

  • There are two breakfast foods that I love – anything with eggs (egg sandwiches, omelets, over-easy, poached with toast, fritatta) and then of course all types of yogurt combinations.  Since I cannot eat eggs anymore, I am always on the look out for other options.  My husband LOVES all the ‘bready’ breakfasts such as French […]

  • gluten-free-vegan-breakfast

    Yogurt is something I totally love, and I eat it pretty much every day.  I usually buy coconut milk yogurt by So Delicious, and I definitely prefer two flavors in particular…plain and chocolate.  I usually have the chocolate yogurt as a dessert or mix a spoonful of it into my plain yogurt for some extra […]

  • cauliflower-rice-with-apple-sausage-allergen-free

    I find that breakfast is my toughest meal of the day.  I feel like I need a nutritious breakfast that is low in sugar (and carbs), but higher in protein and fiber to keep me going through the morning.  That can be a challenge when you’re on a restricted diet like mine.  As a result, […]

  • Vegan Berry Smoothie

    Some mornings I like to have a smoothie, but I don’t usually do the super-green smoothies or the ones that are packed with fruit and sugars.  I try to keep mine purposeful in that it will give me a variety of nutrients, keep me full for several hours, and help me get certain foods into […]
