Chia Pudding

Looking for a new, filling, healthier breakfast option? Chia pudding is a great option and a great source of plant-based protein. I also love it for a yummy dessert! Try it with some raw cacao powder with fresh mango sliced on top. Fun history fact: Chia is the Mayan word for “strength” and trees were planted all around Mayan cities as a major staple crop. “...

Ultimate Homefries

Who doesn’t love homefries? I’ll take a potato basically in any form… creamy in a soup… mashed… baked… fried (although that is very rare)… hash brown… etc. This is a great meal prep item to have ready to go for those days / meals you don’t have time. These will last in the fridge in a sealed container for 3-5 days. If you don’t eat them before then that is. ...

Not Yo Mama's "Frittata" (Vegan / Soy-free)

VEGAN GF FRENCH TOAST

QUINOA OAT BANANA PANCAKES

Who doesn’t love pancakes for brunch? Waffles and french toast are 100% great too, but I’m not trying to make any comparisons. Just a yummy plate of real clean food! I like to keep things as simple and clean as possible in my home kitchen. One pot wonders, one bowl, etc. Less clean up, the better! But I mostly mean clean as in REAL whole plant based foods, f...
