Better-For-You Blueberry and Walnut Banana Bread

Merry Christmas week everyone! I hope you’re having as much fun with your loved ones as I am! It’s been non stop back and forth from Columbus to Raleigh since Thanksgiving, but I’ve had so much fun seeing everyone and really just trying to soak up as much family time as possible. I had wanted…

Thai Tempeh Meal Prep

After being off for three glorious weeks enjoying time with family and friends it’s time to head back on the road tomorrow! I’m so thankful for my job for many reasons, but most of all it sometimes (more so as your seniority goes up) allows you to set up your schedule in such a way…

Vegan Chickpea and Spinach Curry Over Cauliflower Rice

Our household is an equal opportunity household. Come one come all, we love all foods of all cuisines! One of my personal favorites is Asian food; I could go through and list all the countries, but no ones got time for that! We’ve got food to cook, and today we’re going to India 🙂 While…
