Vegan MoFo: Chocolate Protein Nice Cream & Double Chocolate Oatmeal Protein Squares

Do you even protein, bro?      So today's prompt is asking how I get my protein.  I would imagine my question to this ever present question from non-vegans would be to show them a bit of a double whamey: a protein-packed breakfast. It's very difficult to come by vegan breakfast foods that are prepared… Continue reading Vegan MoFo: Chocolate Protein Nice Cream & Double Chocolate Oatmeal Protein Squares

Vegan MoFo: Sprouted Spiced Black Bean Nachos

     I know, I know...today is supposed to be "junk food forever" themed.  Nachos are a classic party food that can be as junky as you want.  Having nachos drowned in dairy cheese, sour cream and other fattening ingredients is junk, for sure.  I decided to take today's prompt and "de-junk" nachos so that… Continue reading Vegan MoFo: Sprouted Spiced Black Bean Nachos

MoFo 5: Chipotle Portabella Cheesesteak Burritos

     Fusion food day is here! Last year, I made some risotto with a Mexican twist.  It was quite magical.  For some reason, I can't stay away from that theme so here I am again.  I'm fusing the burrito and spicy chipotle flavor with the Philly staple: the cheesesteak. Cheesesteak was always something I… Continue reading MoFo 5: Chipotle Portabella Cheesesteak Burritos

MoFo 2: Quick and Easy Rice Noodle Soup

     This MoFo prompt is my kind of low-key meal! I love to cook, don't get me wrong.  😉 But, some days and nights are busy.  I hate to make a ton of dirty dishes just to feed myself.  My favorite quick and easy food used to be instant ramen in my younger days.… Continue reading MoFo 2: Quick and Easy Rice Noodle Soup

Watermelon Aloe Popsicles

     Well, it's certainly been awhile! I've been through a great transition recently in terms of my job position and I couldn't be happier (albeit very tired).  I know the last post was Memorial Day weekend.  Don't hate me!  I'm back for this last patriotic holiday before the school year starts again with a… Continue reading Watermelon Aloe Popsicles
