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…

Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies

You can eat cookies for breakfast! These breakfast cookies, made with oats & almond flour are a healthy, wholesome way to start the day.

Here’s how much I love these breakfast 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 breakfast 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 healthy breakfast 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…

Chickpea Shawarma Wraps

Shawarma spiced chickpeas, creamy hummus, spicy zhoug, and fresh veggies fill warm pita bread in this delicious vegetarian wrap recipe.

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

These BBQ Jackfruit Sandwiches are the ultimate party food. They're easy to make ahead and have wonderful meaty texture and spicy/smoky flavor.

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 guys are meaty, juicy, smoky, a little spicy… and a total mess to eat, but isn’t that what saucy sandwiches are all about? What is Jackfruit? 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 most commonly grows in Africa, Asia, and South America. Though I’ve never had it ripe, it’s said to have a sweet flavor akin to…

Cherry Tomato Couscous Salad

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

Now that it’s becoming late summer, I’m starting to wonder if a year-round indoor herb garden is possible. I love having a ton of fresh herbs right outside my door, and I’m really going to miss them when they’re gone, especially when I’m styling (and eating) something as herb-heavy as this summer couscous salad!  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 couscous salad recipe is all about the…
