Hawaiian Portobello Burgers

Who doesn’t love a good, juicy burger? This portobello burger won’t disappoint. The meaty mushrooms soak up the sweet and savory, ginger and sesame teriyaki sauce, and release those flavors with every bite. Simple slaw provides a  refreshing crunch. Topping the stack with delectable pineapple takes it to another level. Yum! While the taste is [...]

Tofu Scramble Rancheros

Several years ago, when I was out of town at a health coaching conference, I ordered a tofu scramble for breakfast at the restaurant near my hotel. I was not impressed. It was yellow like eggs, but the taste was bland and the texture mushy. Not like eggs at all. I continued to ignore the [...]

Vegan Black Bean and Sweet Potato Chipotle Burritos

Burritos are one of my go-to comfort foods. They’re fast, filling, and so full of flavor I don’t miss the oil, cheese or sour cream. This delicious, whole-food, plant-based burrito starts with water sautéed onion and jalapeno pepper. Then I add in diced, cooked sweet potatoes and a couple of handfuls of mixed baby greens. [...]

Mexican Black Bean Stuffed Spaghetti Squash (WFPB, Vegan, Vegetarian, GF)

Walk into a grocery store in October in the Northern Hemisphere, and you’re likely to see winter squash of all shapes and sizes piled high in bins. These lovely vegetables have been soaking up the sun all summer long. (If you grow winter squash, you know you have been faithfully watering these babies for months. [...]

Better Than Chicken Noodle Skillet Casserole

This week I made over a former family favorite – Tuna Noodle Casserole. The new version is plant-based and utilizes a meat replacement product from Beyond Meat® called Beyond Chicken Strips. If you’re already on the WFPB bandwagon, you may question this ingredient. You know that whole food, plant-based ingredients are best. If this is [...]

Product Review: Victoria Vegan Alfredo Sauce

For many working women, the pasta-and-jarred-alfredo-sauce combo is a frequent go-to meal on busy weeknights. The reasons are obvious. It’s fast. You don’t have to think about it. The kids eat it. The problem is that most jarred alfredo sauces definitely belong on the unhealthy “leave it on the shelf” list. A quick glance at [...]

Tex-Mex Bulgur Bowl

You won’t miss the meat in this delicious bulgur bowl!  Last week, while I was perusing my recipe binder and planning the new week’s dinner menu, I ran across an old favorite from Cooking Light - Tex-Mex Rice Bowl.  I decided to make a meatless version to rev up the nutritional value. In this new [...]

What to Do When Your Child Wants to Be Vegan

As children learn and grow, they discover wonderful new things, like the solar system and DNA.  But they also have to learn difficult subjects, like slavery and global warming.  And as their understanding of the world grows, their knowledge influences their identity and decisions. This includes their food and lifestyle choices. My son, now 12, [...]

The Case for Just Eating Better (No Diet Labels)

There are many diet labels out there. Vegetarian.  Lacto-Ovo-Vegetarian.  Pescatarian. Vegan.  Vegan before 6pm. (Yes, I know this one is controversial. I’ll explain in a minute.) Plant Strong. Flexitarian. Fruititarian. (Yes, they eat only fruit.) Raw Foodist. What I find interesting is that these labels, which are really just styles of eating that put an [...]
