There is a huge misconception that a plant-based diet consists of only boring salads. Plant-based meals give your taste buds the party they have been missing out on! Plant-based meals provide flavorful and nutritious spins on meals. When you first hear the word “salad”, your mind may automatically go to the boring default: lettuce, tomatoes, shredded carrots, and no dressing (aka rabbit food). This salad recipe contains no lettuce and no carrots; it even comes with dressing. Our vegan zucchini quinoa balsamic salad is far from rabbit food!
Cutting back on junk food and eating healthier dinners will help you live a longer, more active life, but finding ideas for healthy meals is tough and eating the same healthy foods day after day can be boring and repetitive. If you’re trying to eat healthy but are struggling to find the perfect meal to chow down on, try this turkey chili recipe.
When you’re juggling getting ready for work in the morning while also getting your children ready for their days, the last thing you want to do is spend an hour in the kitchen. We all want something quick and healthy in the morning that also breaks up our usual breakfast routine. I’ve found sweet potato toasts to be the perfect solution! Sweet potatoes are a staple in my family’s weekly diet, so I was excited when I found another purpose for them! The first time I made these, I was shocked that I preferred these sweet potato toasts over other breakfast toasts I’ve made before – and it took half the time!
You and your family might be trying to reduce the number of plastics you use. Reusable bags and many other products are starting to replace one-time use plastics. Some of the most wasteful one-time use products come from food storage.
We use plastic wrap and aluminum foil to wrap up leftovers, sandwiches for lunches or picnics, and food storage. While it may seem like there isn’t a subtle substitute for these products, there are reusable food wraps that you can make easily in your home.
These DIY food wraps are made using the fabric of your choosing and beeswax. Also, no worries, they are safe and have no harmful side effects. Depending on the type of fabric you use, they can be all-natural.
