Adventures in Homemade Vegan Yogurt

I have always been a yogurt lover. I don’t like taking straight probiotic capsules, but I love consuming probiotic rich foods. Vegan yogurt, though… gets so expensive. I purchased some yogurt starter a few weeks ago and began researching making homemade yogurt. I was afraid that I’d need a lot of equipment and that it’dContinue reading “Adventures in Homemade Vegan Yogurt”

Blueberry, Buckwheat, and Chia Parfait

When it comes to waking up in the morning for work, I’ll push snooze again and again, any day. (On my days off, I happily pop out of bed earlier than on a workday and usually head straight into my garden.) Since I know I feel better all day if I eat a good breakfast,Continue reading “Blueberry, Buckwheat, and Chia Parfait”

Blackberry Banana Smoothie

The blackberries have been pretty affordable at the local co-op I shop at… They’re also beautiful and delicious, and my berries plants are just getting started and not producing anything yet. I’ve slowed down on my smoothie kick… I was drinking a smoothie every day for a span, but I’ve been enjoying more savory breakfastsContinue reading “Blackberry Banana Smoothie”

Basil Breakfast Potatoes

I looooove having a wonderful breakfast before work. My day always goes better when I’ve begun it by taking good care of myself and making myself something good to eat. I’m a big fan of potatoes.. They can be prepared in such a wonderful variety of ways. I think potatoes (especially oven fries) are my numberContinue reading “Basil Breakfast Potatoes”

Berry Green Tea Smoothie

I’ve been drinking a smoothie every morning for the past few weeks. I like to keep a variety of fruit in the freezer to make the mornings a little easier, and I realized I still had some raspberries frozen from last years huge harvest. Last summer, I was gardening with a friend, on someone else’s property, andContinue reading “Berry Green Tea Smoothie”

Vegan Gluten Free Banana Split Pancakes

I’m trying to enjoy every last Saturday I have to myself. Wedding season is coming up and I’ve got 10 weddings scheduled to photograph throughout the summer already, and quite possibly five more. Most of which occur on Saturdays and are 8-12 hour days without travel. As much as I love doing it, I’m goingContinue reading “Vegan Gluten Free Banana Split Pancakes”

Refreshing Melon Smoothie

  I’m to the point now where I’m just going to pretend it’s nice out. I’m going to pretend it’s not been raining for a week straight and that the sun has actually shone. I’ve been craving fresh flavors like lemon, mint, cucumbers, and melon. And I’m back on my smoothie kick. I have hadContinue reading “Refreshing Melon Smoothie”

Ingredients 1 pear, chopped 1 1/2 cups oats 2 tsp cinnamon 1 Tbsp maple syrup 1 cup water 1 cup almond milk (or other milk alternative) 1/2 tsp sea salt Put waterContinue reading “Cinnamon Pear Oatmeal”

Strawberry and Cocoa Oats

I love oatmeal in the morning… That is, when I roll out of bed early enough to make breakfast instead of grabbing a granola bar and juice. But, I am working on getting up earlier in order to incorporate a morning yoga practice. It’s just so hard when it’s below freezing; I don’t want toContinue reading “Strawberry and Cocoa Oats”

Cinnamon Raisin Hot Rice Cereal

Lately, I’ve been sleeping in too late to eat a good breakfast, and it’s been throwing off my whole day. So, I thought if I had some rice already cooked and in the refrigerator in the morning, I would have no excuse not to make a quick hot rice cereal and eat it. It wasContinue reading “Cinnamon Raisin Hot Rice Cereal”
