Pumpkin Pie Smoothie Bowl

This pumpkin pie smoothie bowl is a comforting, refreshing feel-good bowl of nothing but pumpkin power. Perfect breakfast for the fall with only 4 ingredients and no sugar added!  I’ve been on this roll of updating some of my old recipes lately and making video for them, like my vegan loaded sweet potato and vegan green goddess dressing. I’m not necessarily updating the recipe itself (although sometimes I make a couple tweaks) but mostly updating the photos because I’ve learned a thing or two about photography over the last few years. And making videos because they’re just fun to make and I know how much ya’ll love them.

But in updating old blog posts, I have to tell you that I’m pretty embarrassed by some of the language around food that I was using a few years ago. For instance, I had to delete the words “clean-eating” and “guilt-free” from this…

3 Days in Berlin

A recap of my 3 days in Berlin – what we saw, where we ate, and all the feels I experienced while I was there. Before I dive into what we did and where we ate, I feel compelled to tell you a little bit about my Berlin experience….

Berlin hit me hard.

I’ve never traveled to a place with such horrific history. Sure, you read about the Holocaust in textbooks in school, you see movies recreating the brutality, but to be there, to walk the streets, to see the hotel balcony where Hitler gave his speeches, to see the land which covers up his old bunker and the building where the SS was stationed, it all felt very close and real. Visiting the Holocaust memorial was intense too. Reading the letters of the victims in the concentration camps writing farewells to their families, it put tears in my eyes and left…

Vegan Slow Cooker Pumpkin Curry

A warm and hearty vegan slow cooker pumpkin curry that’s sure to satisfy on a cold fall or winter night. I don’t hate the day when I decide it’s time to bring to the slow cooker out of the storage closet and into the kitchen. It’s usually some day in October when the temperatures start to drop and the heaters start to kick on in our apartment. The leaves have already started to fall and outside is a sea of red, yellow and orange.

But the million dollar question is what is the worthy recipe that will kick off slow cooker season in our household. This year it was curry.I’m a big fan of curry. I’ve been eating it since the first Thai restaurant opened up in my hometown when I was in high school. And I ate loads of it when I traveled to Thailand a few years back. And…

Vegan Green Goddess Dressing

Vegan Green Goddess Dressing that’s packed with greens, apple cider vinegar, EVOO and is completely dairy-free. Perfect over a kale salad, a sweet potato, or even used as a dip. A few weeks back I had a loaded sweet potato that rocked my world. It had kale, black beans, and Annie’s Green Goddess dressing. While I love Annie’s products, I knew I had to try and recreate this masterpiece from scratch.And to learn in just 60 seconds how to make this dressing, check out my video below!

Traditional green goddess dressing calls for mayo and/or sour cream. I’ve even seen buttermilk thrown around! But I wanted to make a dressing using only greens, unrefined plant oil (aka EVOO), and vinegar. I’m not gonna lie.I also just love the name of this dressing. I think everyone deserves to feel like a goddess every now and again. I…

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…
