Vegan Loaded Sweet Potato

The ultimate vegan loaded sweet potato – packed with kale, black beans, and topped off with a homemade green goddess dressing. Perfect for a quick and easy weeknight meal. I’m excited to bring some new life today to the most popular recipe on my blog, including a brand new video (see below)!

This recipe was created on a whim a few years ago. Steve was working late and I was left to fend for dinner by myself. I wanted something that fit the following criteria:

  • Fit for a table of one
  • Healthy
  • Warm, comforting & grounding (in Ayurveda, root vegetables like the sweet potato are thought to be grounding – I talk more about Ayurveda principles in Nourish Your Namaste)
  • Easy to make
  • Filling & satisfying
  • Delicious (obvs)

I had sweet potatoes and kale at home already so I was inspired to build on that and…

Mini Tuna Sushi Burritos

These mini tuna sushi burritos are the cutest appetizers to serve at your next get-together! Not to mention, they’re pretty delicious too.  I remember my first sushi burrito like it was yesterday. It was a few years ago in California (of course, it was California – all the best food trends start there). And I was like this is genius. The version I ate that day had all the sushi components wrapped up in a tortilla but most versions I see these days are wrapped in seaweed or nori. Which, if you think about it a sushi burrito is basically like one big (and better) sushi roll. Not sure what I mean? Watch my video for how to make these mini sushi burritos below!

I honestly think one of the reasons I like sushi burritos so much is because they usually contain guacamole (a play…

Whole Wheat Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread

This whole-wheat pumpkin chocolate chip zucchini bread is easy to make and delicious for breakfast or snack or dessert! It’s pumpkin season ya’ll! I’m always a little sad to leave summer behind but the promise of pumpkin everything on store shelves gives me a glimmer of hope for fall.

We’ve got one more week of our CSA (sad face) and are still getting zucchini in our boxes. To be honest, I’m not the biggest fan of summer squash but I do enjoy it grated into fritters and bread. So I made a few loaves of zucchini bread over the past few weeks and I’m still not sick of it. Especially when I tweaked the recipe and added in pumpkin, walnuts, and wait for it…CHOCOLATE CHIPS! Quick breads like banana bread and zucchini bread are the best because…they’re QUICK! And they’re quick to eat the morning too before you head out the door….

3 Days in Prague and Review of Prague Food Tour

A recap of my 3 days in Prague – where to eat and what to see, including an awesome Prague Food Tour!Prague was my next stop after Copenhagen — a quick 1.5 hour flight from Denmark to Czech Republic. I stayed right in Old Town Square which was a huuuuuge mistake. I thought it would be a good idea to stay somewhere central given that I was traveling by myself but after being woken up at 2:30am every night to some drunko playing the accordion outside my window, I realized I should’ve stayed somewhere a little more off the beaten path.

DAY ONE:

When I first arrived to Prague, I was craving very non-traditional Prague food, i.e. a salad. I went to a place my vegetarian friend had recommended called Lehká Hlava, or Clear Head. It’s like this yogi oasis tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Old Town…

Sheet Pan Salmon Fajitas

These sheet pan salmon fajitas are perfect for a quick weeknight dinner with minimal cleanup! Can you say Taco Tuesday? Or, better yet, Fajita Friday??I’m so thankful that sheet pan dinners are trending right now. Because while you may think that a food blogger’s life is glamorous, if you saw my kitchen after a recipe test, you would most definitely think otherwise. Especially considering that I don’t have a dishwasher in my Boston apartment. I can wind up doing  the dishes four times a day when I’m recipe testing. Needless to say, I need to thank the baking sheet gods for making sheet pan dinners a trend. Because sheet pan dinner = minimal cleanup.I love when food trends are actually practical and make life easier. Unlike cauliflower pizza crust and aquafaba, sheet pan dinners actually save you time and energy. And lord knows we can all use a little extra…

3 Days in Copenhagen: Where to Eat & What to See

Recapping my 3 days in Copenhagen and sharing where to eat if you’re a foodie like me and what to see! 

DAY ONE:

Walk around Kastellet, the old citadel in Copenhagen. It’s a big green area to walk or jog around and you’ll take in some history while you’re at it as the citadel was founded in 1626! While you’re there, follow the crowds of tourists by the water to the little mermaid statue. Honestly, it’s not much to see (it’s super tiny!) but it recognizes Hans Christian Anderson, who lived in Copenhagen while writing his famous fairy tales, like The Little Mermaid. Grab lunch at Torvehallerne, a food market with over 60 food vendors selling everything from coffee to porridge, to meats and cheese, seafood and salads. And of course, smørrebrød, the classic Danish open-faced sandwich. It’s the perfect place for a quick bite to eat and to people watch!
