Roasted Sweet Potato Poblano Breakfast Tacos

These healthy, vegetarian breakfast tacos are easy to prep ahead - making them great for weekday breakfasts! Filling and delicious!

It’s fall (at least it feels like fall), and I wanted to do something a little bit different to kick off the season. I had these two separate ideas on my list: #1 to bring back the meal prep series that you all loved a few months back and/or #2: Breakfast Taco Week! Then, it occurred to me that I could combine both! So this week is: Breakfast Taco Meal Prep Week! That means I’ll be posting 3 separate breakfast taco recipes that you can prep for all at once and easily make throughout the week. I’ll post recipes 2…


Blueberry Lemon Zest Breakfast Cookies

These substantial cookies are a yummy breakfast or snack! They're made with oat flour, almond butter, and are naturally sweetened with maple syrup.

Here’s how much I love these cookies: after I finish typing this post, I’m going to go downstairs to the kitchen to make more. I like to store stashes of these cookies in the freezer because they’re a perfectly portioned daily breakfast for me. The freezer is also a great way to hide them from Jack, who would otherwise eat one every time he walks past the kitchen counter 🙂 These cookies are both vegan and gluten free. They have fiber from the oats, protein and healthy fats from the almond butter, and they’re naturally sweetened with maple syrup. Who…


Chickpea Shawarma Wraps

Spiced chickpeas, creamy hummus, spicy zhoug jalapeño paste, and juicy/crispy veggies wrapped in a warm pita. A yummy vegetarian meal!

I’m obsessed with these wraps! I loved them so much that after we took these photos, I thought about them all day, I dreamt about them that night, and when I woke up, I ate the last leftover wrap for breakfast. I would not consider these “breakfast” wraps – I just didn’t have the willpower to wait for lunch. I mean, the warmly spiced chickpeas, the creamy hummus, the spicy zhoug chile paste, and the juicy/crispy veggies… this is what dreams are made of… at least if you’re me. I mean, how pretty are they?! They’re so fresh and delicious!…


BBQ Jackfruit Sandwiches (vegan!)

These jackfruit sliders are completely vegan but so meaty, juicy, smoky, a little spicy. The chipotle BBQ sauce is so easy to make! Vegetarian

I’ve gotten SO many requests for a BBQ Jackfruit recipe. It took me a little time to get this one just right, but here we are! These are meaty, juicy, smoky, a little spicy… and a total mess to eat, but isn’t that what saucy sandwiches are all about? If you haven’t been asking for a jackfruit recipe, you’re probably now asking – what the heck is jackfruit? Well, it’s a funny-looking fruit that doesn’t really have much flavor (it’s certainly not sweet and fruit-like). When you pull apart the pieces it has the texture of shredded meat. It doesn’t usually…


Roasted Cherry Tomato & Thyme Couscous Salad

This fresh summer couscous salad is packed with raw & roasted cherry tomatoes, feta, roasted chickpeas, and herbs. Perfect for a picnic or packing up for lunch!

We’re at that point in the summer where I’m starting to wonder: is an indoor herb garden possible? I love having a ton of fresh herbs around, and I’m really going to miss them when they’re gone. They’re so delicious and oh so PRETTY. I often get asked about my food photography/styling tips and my best tip is always: Whatever dish you have, smother it in herbs! Aside from lots of fresh thyme and basil, this recipe is all about the tomatoes. I slow roast half of them, and put the other half raw into the salad. Together the raw…
