Strawberry-Mango Pudding with Chia Seeds

Strawberry-Mango Pudding with Chia Seeds BEST 2
With my Indian ancestry, mangos are kind of a big deal in my family. We literally buy mangos by the boxful and go through them pretty quickly. Whether it’s simply dicing and eating, smashing into “russo”, sprinkling with cayenne pepper and lime, or blending into a mango lassi, we LOVE our mango. That’s why I wasn’t the least bit surprised...

Banana-Oat-Yogurt Pancakes with Chia Seeds

Banana-Oat-Yogurt Pancakes with Chia Seeds
I love making pancakes for my family at least once a week. Usually, it happens on a weekend when nobody is rushing out the door to get to work. As usual, I like to make things healthy whenever possible. And when the better-for-you version tastes better than the ones make with junky refined flour, it’s a win-win. My go-to pancake...

kaboompics.com_Falling powder sugar on donuts
Almost exactly a year ago, my hubby and I participated in a 10-day “sugar detox” and it just may be time for another one. I remember struggling through the first 3 days of not eating my usual sweet treats (like ice cream and chocolate!), but feeling AMAZING by day 4 and really not missing the sugar at all by day 10. In...

Banana-Zucchini Muffins

2016-04-05 15.30.28-2
I know I say I don’t bake a lot, and honestly, I didn’t used to. But, now that I know my son loves muffins and that they are a regular part of his breakfast (muffin + plain yogurt + fruit/vegetable smoothie), I’ve been experimenting a little more with batters and baked goods. As usual, I had a couple of over-ripe bananas,...

Eggy Black Bean Quesadilla

Eggy Black Bean Quesadilla - Bite
This recipe is sooooo easy to make – it’s one of my favorite lunches to whip up when I need something quick and filling, but nutritious (obviously!), too. I would say that I prepare these black beans at least once a week because the whole family enjoys them. You can use them in these quesadillas, or in tacos, on nachos,...

Avocado-Banana Pudding with Cardamom

Avocado-Banana Pudding with Cardamom 7 - Fave
For the longest time, I reserved avocados for one thing and one thing only…guacamole. That’s just how I like my avocado – mixed with tomato, onion, and lime juice, then eaten with a tortilla chip or scooped onto an enchilada, in a burrito, or on a quesadilla. It’s still my number 1 way to eat an avocado, but I’ve opened...

Vegan Asparagus, Green Pea & Edamame Soup

Vegan Asparagus-Pea-Edamame Soup 8 - Fave!
This gorgeous vegan soup just screams SPRING! I love using fresh, seasonal produce whenever possible – it tends to be cheaper (that’s how supply and demand works, folks) and it tastes amazing! With asparagus season in full bloom and tender English peas available at the market, this recipe is what seasonal cooking is all about. Plus, when blended, the texture is perfectly...

Nutty Dates

Nutty Dates 3
Ok. So, this isn’t so much a recipe as it is a simple assembly. Pitted dates are perfect little packages ready to be stuffed with all sorts of goodies. Personally, I like to balance out the naturally sweet and chewy date with a bit of savory and crunchy nuts – almonds and walnuts fit well, so I opt for them,...

Vegetarian Protein-Powered Snacks

Nutty Dates Square
I was raised a vegetarian and as a very athletic kid, teenager, and now adult, protein has always been a major focus of my diet. I can still remember my mom enticing me to eat lentils by telling me that it has a lot of protein and that I needed it to be strong. (What do ya know, she was...
