I’ve been a fan of Dr. Gregor for years. It was after reading his previous book, How Not to Die, that I decided to try eating plant based. I also have his How Not to Die Cookbook. So when I heard he was coming out with a new book, How Not to Diet, I was eager to check it out.
I’m always on the hunt for a good protein powder. So far, the OWYN brand is my favorite but I wanted to venture out and try some other brands. So when I found out that Grace Fit UK was coming out with protein powders, I jumped right on it.
Mug cakes are honestly the best. They are perfect for lazy days and aren’t as time consuming as traditional cakes. And nothing is better than chocolate and peanut butter.
This peanut butter chocolate chip mug cake is super easy to make and delicious. It is also oil free, if that is something you are into.
When I think of Easter desserts I think of carrot cake. I’m writing this a few weeks before Easter self isolating at home thanks to the Coronavirus pandemic and I know that I most likely will not be able to see my family for a while, and definitely not by Easter. I was feeling homesick and so I opened up one of my mom’s cookbooks that she gave to me a while ago.
You can’t go wrong with a good soup. I’ve been loving making this cream of spinach soup lately because it is not very time consuming and is so hearty, packed with flavor, and nutritious (bonus!). It’s also a wonderful way to get some greens in to your diet and can be meal prepped in advance!
It takes a lot for me to eat a salad. They’re a great way to get greens in but I just find salads boring. Most salads. This one, though, I love and actually crave.
This week I wanted to show how easy it is to get your greens in! Starting with the classic tofu scramble. If you’ve never heard of tofu scramble it’s a good alternative to scrambled eggs and an easy way to get protein in. Plus something about crumbling up the tofu with your hands is just so satisfying.
I have a complicated relationship with chia seeds. I’m not a big fan of them on their own on toast or in smoothies BUT chia seed pudding, on the other hand, is straight up magical.
Yes, you can really cook pancakes in the microwave! I can’t believe I’ve spent my whole life not knowing this. Today I wanted to share my Mocha Coffee Chocolate Chip Pancake recipe.
This post could have also been called “how to ruin your diet” because when I see ice cream I can’t resist. Sugar is my downfall. But it’s good to have cheat meals every so often, right? That’s what I’m telling myself.
