bbq “chicken” udon noodle bowl

This is one of my easy, go-to dinner recipes when we’re craving something hearty, comforting, and healthy. Now, the chicken in this recipe isn’t really chicken, it’s soy curls. What in the heck are soy curls? I wondered the same thing before trying them. After reading about them and looking around online for easy recipes,…

vegan salisbury “steak”

There are many “cooling” foods in this dish which make it an even more perfect summer offering. According to eastern medicine there are foods…

vanilla chia shake

Chia shakes and smoothies are my new obsession. Here’s a simple, delicious, one with only a few ingredients. It’s so refreshing and healthy and perfect for those mornings when you’re in a hurry, or those afternoons when you need a quick snack. Don’t be tempted to add a bunch of other stuff to it. It’s…
