Superfood Coffee

It’s true that coffee is one of the most popular food items in the world, well at least here in the US we would be lost without our precious coffee. I have to admit, I like it too. There’s just something that is so comforting about a nice warm cup of coffee in the morning. But sad news for me, caffeine really isn’t my friend *insert crying emoji here. So I drink decaf occasionally, and I do like it- but even that bothers me sometimes. I decided to try to make a “coffee” using other ingredients, and even my coffee-obsessed hubby slurped this Superfood “Coffee” down like it was the real deal.

This superfood blend tastes like coffee, is quick to make and it really has some amazing, yet simple wholesome ingredients with some added health benefits. One of my favorite ingredients is the Fermented Maca Booster Powder from New Chapter! Let’s take a peek…

Pumpkin Carbonara with Shiitake “Bacon”

I don't know about you, but I have sure been enjoying pumpkin everything, and mostly sweet pumpkin everything. Today I welcome you to a savory pumpkin recipe that's easy to make, delicious (as always), and filled with that star squash we all swoon over once fall hits... pumpkin! Ok, so let me ask you this... Do you love pasta? Do you love a simple 30-minute meal? Do you love mushrooms? And do you love pumpkin, but not the overbearing kind, like the subtle pumpkin flavor? If you answered yes, then you are certainly going to love this recipe.

Roasted Acorn Squash + Pear Arugula Salad

If you're like me, you still crave salads in the middle of winter (because I feel like salad is always a good idea and they are so simple to make).

So for this Roasted Squash + Pear Arugula Salad we have: ☆ arugula ☆ acorn squash ☆ pear ☆ quinoa ☆ cannellinii beans ☆ vegan parmesan cheese ☆ creamy maple tahini dressing This salad recipe truly is so simple, amazingly flavorful, has just the right amount of sweetness, and has some really nutrient dense foods that will no doubt fill you up (I am suprised at how filling this salad is!).

The New Chapter products mentioned in this post were sent to me as a gift  to use in this recipe, thank you so much! As we head into fall, I’m indulging in all that comes with it.

This recipe is actually really simple to make, and because you make the chia pudding and the peach curd the night before, it makes for an easy breakfast the next morning! Yes, I said breakfast! You could also have it for dessert,

Butternut Squash Gnocchi

Fall food is in full bloom at my house right now. After this super hot summer, I was so excited to start making fall comfort foods and this Butternut Squash Gnocchi was one of the first recipes on the menu to try. Now the thing about gnocchi... I've never actually made it, and to be completely honest, I've only had it maybe once or twice. I know, I know. Weird. Guys, I've been missin' out! So here we are.

Are there any pumpkins out there reading this?! So here I am with a fall-inspired, pumpkin-y dessert to knock those fall socks right off, and of course I couldn't have developed this Pumpkin and Chia Pudding Granola Tarts recipe without the amazing products from Suncore Foods! These tarts are super easy to make,

Slow Cooker Broccoli “Cheese” Soup

Y'all... I'm on a kick, a slow cooker kick- and I'm loving it! I do the prep in the morning, let it cook all day and then sit down and eat when we want (or can!). It's perfect. It's so perfect I've decided to add a slow cooker recipe category to my blog and hope to add lots of new recipes there this fall and winter. I never thought I would see the day where vegan could taste so cheesy. Like seriously. The truth is, I LOVE cheese. But I don't eat cheese and haven't for years because me and cheese don't jive... so when I create foods that are cheesy, and taste like the real deal I get very happy. I thought my taste buds were deceiving me at first, but the leftovers proved to be just as cheesy as when I first had this Broccoli "Cheese" Soup.

The healthiest, yummiest, creamiest cheesecake around. Ya, that's right, I said healthy! I have a confession to make though, I was really disappointed because I didn't think this cheesecake was going to turn out. I was emotionally prepared to start all over and try again, but by some miracle and baking good fortune, not only did this cheesecake set up perfectly, it is fan-freakin'-tastic my friends! So now that we've talked about just how good this cheesecake is (did I mention how
