Ever pulled up a recipe only to have to scroll past 19 pictures (I think I can identify a banana, thanks) or read about the author’s childhood memories of bread?

I’ll never include more than 3 images and you’ll never have to read about the philosopy of bell peppers.

Just delicious vegan recipes.

Breakfast

Loaded Oatmeal

I always have to shake my head at the packets of sugar filled instant oatmeal. I’m pretty sure those peaches have been so saturated in sugar that there is no peach left! Anyone resorting to those is missing out on a huge opportunity to start the day off right. And it still only takes 5 minutes to make!

Vegan Breakfast Burrito

I know, I know. Sometimes breakfast can feel so repetitive. I know I sure do eat a lot of oatmeal and avocado toast. There are times when you just need to switch it up. Truthfully, I don’t think I ever knew what a breakfast burrito was before because that pre-made frozen crap has nothing on this hearty and satiating dish. The mixture can even be made in advance to make your morning easier.

 
 

Smoothies

Chocolate Berry

Protein Smoothie

This is my favorite go to smoothie that I have multiple times a week. It always gives me a boost of energy and satisfies my sweet tooth while loading me with nutrients.

Immunity Boost

Smoothie

Perfect smoothie if you feel that your brain and body need an extra boost, you feel a case of the uckies coming on or if you know it’s that time of year where everything is going around and you want to up your defense.

Seize the Day

Breakfast Smoothie

If you have to take your breakfast on the go (or maybe you want to enjoy a morning walk while sipping this goodness), I got you covered. It’s all of the benefits of a hearty breakfast in a cup.

Health Bars

No Bake Gluten Free

Vegan Protein Bars

There have been many times when I was glad I’d made a batch of these because I needed a bit of extra energy. The powder boosts the nutrients through the roof and gives a chocolate flavor with none of the guilt!

Gluten Free, Vegan, Nut-Free

No-Bake Granola Bars

Safe for anyone who may have nut allergies, vegan and gluten free means that these babies are good for pretty much anyone. Because they don’t require baking, they retain even more of their nutrients!

Chewy Gluten Free

Vegan Cranberry Power Bars

I love how these have the perfect blend of sweet and salty while giving you a bit of a kick in the pants when you need motivation. Plus they are brimming with nutrients, so they’re a great way to make sure you are getting everything you need.

Salad

Hearty Lentil

Salad

So many people try to tell me that salads aren’t filling enough, with which I have to reply, you must not be doing it right! This salad offers a little extra oomph with a ton of protein along with a long list of other essential nutrients.

Apple Pecan

Salad

This is my favorite salad to make. It’s just so satisfying and feels more like a treat than a healthy meal. It mixes sweet, sour and even a tiny bit of bitter in perfect harmony. If you’re feeling extra crazy, you can switch out the apples for pears or, heck, add both!

Vegan Goat

Cheese

Buying cheese alternatives (or cheese for that matter) can be costly, they often don’t offer many nutrients or health benefits and many brands heavily rely on a lot of additives. This is a great solution if you are looking for a spread, crumbles for your salad or a bit of zest on your cauliflower crust pizza.

Dressings

Vegan Avocado

Dressing

Many moons ago, I hated everything about avocados. Now, it is rare that I go a day without using one amongst my meals. This creamy dressing is great as a vegetable dip, on salads or even in a breakfast burrito.

Vegan Ranch

Dressing

Ranch is such a staple and the go-to dressing of many, so I couldn’t resist finding a way to make a vegan version that is just as tasty.

Vegan Raspberry

Dressing

Most people don’t think of the possibilities of a sweet dressing and, let me tell you, they are missing out. This is particularly good with any salads that you feel like putting a lot of nuts in, such as pecans or walnuts.

Dinner

Simple Vegan

Goulash

Goulash has always been one of my go to comfort foods. It is simple to make, inexpensive and is a super easy switch to make meat and dairy free.

Simple Vegan

Enchiladas

Living in Arizona, I have a lot of options when it comes to authentic Mexican cuisine. I wanted to find something that still had that traditional touch without all the crud. Considering my Hispanic friend tried my enchiladas and gave me a thumbs up, I think I can safely say that they are amazing.

Black Bean and Sweet

Potato Tacos

Tacos are a great versatile staple and easy to accommodate to a variety of nutrition regimes. This nutrient packed dish has the perfect balance of sweet and salty

Vegan Fettuccine

Alfredo

Alfredo was the meal I was most afraid to give up when I ditched milk. I was determined to figure out a suitable replacement. With a lot of trial and error, I found a recipe every bit as satisfying. Plus it taught me how easy it can be to load up on veggies at dinner.
