Sweet Potato and Black Bean Enchiladas

From the Bite Me, I’m Vegan blog, I bring you another delicious pairing of sweet potatoes and black beans.  You may remember I love this combination; they appear in my favorite Sri Lankan Kale with Sweet Potatoes and Black Beans. I ended up doing extra work for this recipe because I had neither enchilada sauce nor vegan sour cream.  So….I made my own of each.  I used the Happy Herbivore... read more

Pumpkin Pie Chia Pudding Parfait

I would describe this dessert as a deconstructed pumpkin pie; it has all the elements–crust, pumpkin pie filling, and “cream.”  It was tasty, but I’m not a huge pumpkin fan, so the small size of this serving (I used a Turkish tea glass) was just right.  Thank you to my friend, Chris, for the crystal serving tray that I used to stage this photo–it was a perfect Christmas... read more

Vegan Christmas Casserole and an Awesome Gift

Another wonderful family Christmas!  We didn’t travel anywhere this year, but we’ve had a fantastic day Skyping with family, opening gifts and playing with presents, and cooking delicious food.  Per usual, we didn’t go with any kind of “traditional” holiday fare, but instead relied on a yummy, healthy, and filling dish that is at least holiday-colored with its green... read more

Roasted Chestnuts

“Chestnuts roasting on an open fire, Jack Frost nipping at your nose………” For me, chestnuts are pretty much synonymous with “The Christmas Song” and Nat King Cole.  I didn’t actually taste a roasted chestnut until I was in my 20s on assignment in Tirana, Albania, where they were being sold by street vendors.  As soon as I’d peeled one open and tasted... read more

Whole Foods Pecan Pie (vegan and refined sugar-free)

Okay, so technically it’s not a “perfectly healthy” pie because I cheated and used a store-brought crust, but depending on your dietary restrictions, you could make your own crust and make it vegan, whole foods, and even gluten-free if desired!  When my husband said he wanted a pecan pie for Thanksgiving (the most unhealthy pie there is!) I was determined to find a healthy recipe. ... read more

Roasted Butternut Squash and Caramelized Onion Lasagna with Cashew Cream Sauce

  Happy Thanksgiving!  So many things to be grateful for, and one of the things I am most thankful for is a lifestyle that allows me to eat such delicious food while maintaining my health!  This lasagna is slightly sweet from the squash and the cashew cream sauce is an amazing stand-in for the ricotta you’d find in a traditional lasagna.  A scrumptious dish that was loved by... read more

Kohlrabi-Ginger Soup

My first time cooking with kohlrabi and I attempted an original recipe!  “Kohl,” for “cabbage,” and “rabi,” for “turnip” (Germanic)–this nutrient dense food contains 140% RDA of vitamin C, 19% RDA fiber, and 14% RDA potassium in a 1 cup serving.  Add in the russett potato, carrots, and awesome anti-inflammatory ginger and turmeric, and you have an... read more

"Eat Clean" Black Bean Soup

This is a great “clean out the fridge” kind of soup–I had some bell peppers that were looking a little sad, so this soup was a delicious way to use them up.  The flavor is reminiscent of the 10-Minute Tortilla Soup, but more veggie and less Mexican. This recipe is out of the Eat Clean Diet Cookbook. "Eat Clean" Black Bean Soup   Print "Eat Clean" Black Bean Soup Author:... read more

Gluten-Free, Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies (Whole-Food)

I keep trying different vegan chocolate chip cookies because I loooove chocolate chip cookies and it’s fun seeing how a completely different set of ingredients can create similar cookies.  I love these chocolate chip cookies and Sarah’s chocolate chip cookies, but these cookies are the perfect mix of tasty, easy-to-make, and healthy. Provided you use gluten-free oats, they... read more

Quinoa Tabbouleh

Ahhh…nothing says summer like a refreshing salad with crisp veggies.  I love the Asian Slaw, but this is a tasty alternative that is higher in protein due to the quinoa.  It has a very light, simple flavor and is easy to prepare. This recipe is from Tosca Reno’s Eat Clean Diet Cookbook.   Quinoa Tabbouleh   Print Recipe type: Quick One-Pot Dinner Ingredients 1 cup quinoa,... read more

Sweetening Foods the Whole Foods, Plant-Based Way: Yes, You Can Have Your Cake and Eat It Too

I first tackled the issue of sugar six months ago in my post, “The Sugar Problem: What’s the Sweet Solution?”  One of my New Year’s resolutions was to reduce added sugar intake (not the kind in fruits) to the recommended 20 grams a day.  This week, my interest in reducing refined sugar intake has been focused on my children, as a result of reading Sally... read more

Vanilla-Coconut Chia Seed Pudding

I became enamored with the idea of eating chia seeds from running books like Born to Run, Finding Ultra, and Eat and Run.  As a child of the 1980s, I can still hear the strains of the “Chu, chu, chu, CHIA!” Chia Pet commercials in my head, but I wanted to explore the health benefits of this teeny-tiny seed. offers this list of 7 Good Reasons to Eat Chia Seeds: 1.  Help weight loss... read more
