“Tuna” Salad, 100% Veganized, Oil-free, GF,

Oh, how delicious while saving the fishes! ;) This recipe I created for a mock tuna salad utilizes Dulse flakes. Dulse is a sea vegetable and offers the 'fishy' flavor many people enjoy in their tuna. I can admit it's been so many years since I last tasted a seafood product, that I may not ...

Pizza-Flavored Spaghetti Squash

Since I've posted several other spaghetti squash recipes, I won't dwell on the beauty and nutrient profile of this meal. I'll remind busy people that it's one of the fastest, most satisfying, aromatic, and texture-rich meals out there! This version took a total of 20 minutes, start to finish. ...

Pinto and Nut Cheese Stuffed Poblanos, The Next Episode

Fortunately, for people who enjoyed dairy, the plethora of nut-based cheeses available at most markets helps smooth the transition. A bonus lies in the nutrient profile of nuts over cow's milk ...

Baked Butternut, S-T-R-E-T-C-H your meals and your budget!

This post is less of a specific recipe and more of an inspirational, budget-friendly writing. I hear SO OFTEN 'eating healthy is too expensive' (yes, I reply with the healthcare bill comparison of NOT eating well!). The truth is, eating healthy OUT of your home may be expensive, but I am extrem...

The Un-Cheese Casserole, GF, V

YUMMY!!!! This baked casserole dish may LOOK cheesy, but it's a hearty comfort dish without all of the saturated-fat laden (not to mention cruel, antibiotic-filled, growth hormone-injected) dairy! It works well with a rice base, or with small potatoes as pictured. It's an easy prep, especially ...

BAKED SOUP: MINESTRONE! Kid-Friendly, Simple, and DELICIOUS!

This dish could not be easier. I decided to BAKE this soup, as opposed to simmering on the stove so that I could leave it with little attention and focus on other things. Kids love it because there is a delicate balance of flavors and nothing too spicy or pungent. 'Italian flavors' are pleasing ...
