My sushi consumption lately has been through the roof, and I’m diggin’ it y’all! Contrary to how it looks, sushi is actually a very easy meal to make. My two-and-a-half year old son even loves it (go figure), so that makes it an extra easy dinner decision, at least to satisfy the fleeting toddler’s tastebuds. I find the sushi combinations to be endless- even as you step into vegan sushi.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

A delicious and healthy seven ingredient, ten minute chocolate chip cookie dough that is vegan, gluten-free, naturally sweetened, safe to eat raw, and made from chickpeas! I remember years back I tried cookie dough made from chickpeas and I was definitely underwhelmed. I'm not sure if I just didn't try a great recipe, or if my taste buds have drastically changed since then, or maybe my love for chickpeas has just grown that much. Perhaps all the above. I thought it was about time to revisit this splendid idea of making edible raw cookie dough from my favorite legume.

Admittedly, I like the taste of spicy tuna sushi, but the thought of eating raw tuna, for me,

I'll wait... I know, it's all too easy, isn't it? Today distractions are everywhere, whether we're on social media during lunch, or reading the news, or working while we eat (of making sure out little babies get fed first). A lot of the time convenience trumps nutrition, and as a mom and small business owner I get it, but here at Healthy Little Vittles I try to show that it doesn't have to be that way! It's so
