Pickled Beet + Orange Tostadas

Let’s start with a little bit of truthful history: I used to hate beets. Like hate them. Maybe that’s brutally honest, but that’s just how I roll. Fast forward to modern day and I can say that I have found a newfound, beet-iful love for beets not only because they are so good for you, but also because they are so versatile and for their rich color! I’m not one that will like eat them straight up out of the package (I’m not quite there yet), but I sure love to add them into recipes these days, and I really like beet juice even more. For today’s recipe, I am featuring these delicious Pickled Beet + Clementine Tostadas garnished with fresh arugula, avocado, and a mild chili tahini yogurt! Perhaps in the past I didn’t consume the highest quality of beets and that led to my dismay, so for this recipe I wanted to make sure I used the highest quality beets to truly make these tostadas their very best selves and persuade all you non-beet lovers to try them for yourselves! Love Beets was the perfect choice.

Pickled Beet + Orange Tostadas

Since choosing to really focus heavily on my diet and lifestyle to feel my best every day, it has become a life goal of mine to try new foods and give old foods that I wasn’t so fond of in the past a second chance. So I was super excited when I decided to make these tostadas centered all around beets. And since we just started the new year, you could easily make it a resolution to try new foods too! I think that’s a fun resolution to have, really.

“Sausage”, Onion, Spinach, Mushroom Breakfast Lasagna

If you think you've had your best lasagna... think again my friend, think again. I'm calling it breakfast lasagna, but you can certainly have it any time of the day. Layers of vegan sausage, onion, mushrooms, tofu, and spinach slathered with vegan hollandaise sauce... I told you this might be the best lasagna you've ever had! I'm pretty sure lasagna is one of those dishes that everyone loves. I am so grateful for gluten-free lasagna noodles, or I would be one very sad lady. And although the traditional lasagna is the bomb, I wanted to create a different version, and one that could be enjoyed for breakfast!

The answer to the "what should I make for dessert that isn't loaded with sugar" question you've been asking yourself. See, I get it. When it comes to food at the holidays, it's all about indulging that sweet tooth- especially as a food blogger. And I'm ok with that, in moderation. But then I get to a certain point where I'm on sugar overload, so I migrate more into using natural sugars in my recipes, like as I did in these adorable tarts! And guess what? They still satisfy any sugar cravings that might sneak

Don't get me wrong, I love me some dessert, but I also love getting back on track and packing in those green veggies, mindful intentions, and a little more self-care, whatever form it comes in. I decided to start 2019 with more of a self-care attitude. As I am 7 months pregnant and headed

White Chocolate Cherry Macadamia Cookies

It's my favorite time of the year! Despite the cold and the snow we get here in Ohio, I LOVE LOVE LOVE Christmas.
