Curried Cauliflower & Chickpea Stew (vegan | gluten-free | paleo & meat-lover variation)

I consider myself a very healthy person. But that’s not because I eat “healthy” 100% of the time. I consider myself healthy because I balance out big portions and ultra-rich foods with smaller meals and lots of plant-based eating. Whenever I feel like I’ve been eating too many sweet treats or overindulging in general, a… Continue reading Curried Cauliflower & Chickpea Stew (vegan | gluten-free | paleo & meat-lover variation)

White Three-Bean Chili (vegan | gf)

Today’s post is a veganized recipe of the white chicken chili I made for a client this week. I loved the creaminess and richness of this hearty chicken chili combined with the sweet crunch of the fresh corn kernels. All I needed to do was omit the chicken. I then decided to take it even further and omit the cream as well (aka veganize it).

These zesty burgers are packed with plant-based protein, fiber and flavor. Additionally, because I use arrow root powder and almond flour as… Continue reading Mexican-Spiced Black Bean Burgers (vegan | gluten-free)
