pumpkin and hemp seed granola

Granola is one of those foods that can start out with healthy intensions and then turn into a sugar loaded faux healthy meal or snack. The foundation is typically a wholesome one, but then it becomes adulterated with loads of sugar, oil, possibly some chocolate chips, and sugar coated dried fruit. This recipe for a healthy, "feel good" pumpkin and hemp seed granola, which is loaded with seeds, spices, some maple syrup, and fiber will leave you satisfied and satiated without the post sugar high slump. 

green on green gazpacho

In the depths of summer, the last thing that you want to do is crank up your oven. Keep cool and calm with this raw and refreshing green gazpacho that can be whipped up in 5-minutes flat. 

Gazpacho is traditionally a cold red soup made from summer tomatoes, cucumbers, and day old bread. This spin uses tons of green on green goodness, ensuring that you get your veggie fix. Green vegetables are loaded with Vitamins C and E, which are great for your skin and immune function, and contain high levels of antioxidants.

whole roasted cauliflower with turmeric tahini sauce

Cauliflower is certainly having it's moment, whether it is riced, roasted, or put into a smoothie, it seems to be omnipresent. Cauliflower is typically on our plates once a week, and Jack is already a fan. What makes cauliflower one of my "go-to" vegetables is its versatility, adaptability, and quick cooking time. It is also a member of the brassica family, which means it contains fiber and cancer-fighting nutrients. Whole roasted cauliflower may seem intimidating, but it is quite simple to make and it is certainly a show stopper. If you are looking to impress your vegan or non-vegan friends, here is a dish for you!
