20 Minute Vegetarian Miso Ramen

20 Minute Vegetarian Miso Ramen

I finally paid a visit to the H&L Supermarket - the Asian market here in Charleston. I may have squealed a little when I saw that they have an entire row dedicated to just noodles. #heaven As I walked up and down the aisles, certain products sparked memories from...

Peanut Noodle Salad

Creamy Ricotta Pasta Salad Recipe

Creamy Ricotta Pasta Salad Recipe

The minute I step outside I can feel sweat beginning to bead up on my forehead, chest and lower back. Give it a few minutes more and I'll feel it start to drip. A couple minutes more and it feels like Niagara Falls. It's July in Charleston, SC and the dog days of...

Mushroom Tempeh Ragu over Angel Hair

Mushroom Tempeh Ragu over Angel Hair

Pasta dishes get a bad rep for being too carb heavy. And while this may be true, there is a way around it. You just have to be mindful of how much pasta you're placing into your bowl and how much bread you eat with it. "I can't trust myself around bread and pasta so...

Chickpea Flour Pancakes with Coconut-Apricot Yogurt Sauce

Chickpea Flour Pancakes with Coconut-Apricot Yogurt Sauce

Hey ya'll, happy Friday! I've had a super productive day and I think the pancakes are to blame (and maybe the rainy weather that made me stay inside all day). I made my pancakes with chickpea flour which has more protein and fiber than most other flours, and my energy...

The New Way to Top Your Waffles

The New Way to Top Your Waffles

Avocado?? (Enter cringed and slightly disgusted face) Yeah baby! But you MUST include the sea salt. Eating avocado without salt should be a crime, and I'm convinced that people who don't like avocado, have never had it proper. Salt brings out the true taste of avocado...

Dreamy Honey Mustard Vinaigrette

Dreamy Honey Mustard Vinaigrette
