This past weekend, I ate more fish and potatoes than I would have liked, so this week I’m trying to put the focus back on plants. What better way to do that than a Tofu and Veggie Stir-Fry! My challenge? It is keeping my husband satisfied because he is not a huge tofu fan although …

Nothing sounds better on a blustery winter day than a hot bowl of soup or even better….a hearty chili! I have the best chili recipe ever and it is always a hit at any tailgate or whenever I make it for my family. I recently made it for my grandson’s first birthday party in North …

January Journey Plant-Based Diet Blogs Taking a Weekend Break!

Hey guys, I’m headed out of town for a long weekend of camping and I don’t have great service so my blog will resume on Sunday with all the great dinners and recipes I had on the trip! Have a great weekend!

“Cooking is like life…you learn only when you make mistakes”…Anonymous. Well, if that is true, I learned a lot today with my first experience with tempeh! I’ve always loved tofu when it’s prepared well and I thought tempeh would be kind of the same. Nope! It was not a pleasant eating experience and hopefully, the …

“Let food be thy medicine.” Hippocrates. This was the opening quote of the 2011 documentary called Forks over Knives that I watched last night on Netflix. It is based on not only eating a plant-based diet like me but also a whole food diet. It was, to say the least, an eye-opener. What I loved …

Yesterday was one of those “get things done” days and food was high on the to-do list! First, I spent time in the kitchen prepping my Healthy Layered Mediterranean Dip that I was going to be making on today’s WBIR/Mornings with Fox 43. Its more involved than just preparing the recipe in that you have …

It’s January, we are all trying to keep our healthy New Year’s resolutions, and what could be a stumbling block for us? Football! Tonight, we have the National Championship, the NFL Playoffs are going on (Go Titans!), and the Super Bowl is around the corner. What does that mean…food! And usually lots of it is …

Days like today make me so grateful that I have a husband that loves to cook almost as much as I do. Not only did he make a big breakfast for my son and our granddaughters but he made dinner for me later that night as well. Yes, his breakfast was not on my diet …

I woke up very excited today because my granddaughters were coming to visit and spend the night. Needless to say, a two and three year old is not usually overly interested in a plant-based diet (at least not these two..ha, ha). So, I was faced with my first real test….cooking something I used to eat …
