Healthy Egg Salad Sandwich

Whether you're a fan of traditional egg salad or not, you'll love this bright & briny, tangy & creamy, healthy egg salad recipe!

I’ve never really loved egg salad. Nice way to start a post about egg salad, right? 🙂 But this isn’t just any egg salad sandwich: it’s bright from lemon, full of fresh herbs, and it gets a little briny kick from capers – it’s the best egg salad I’ve had! In fact, compared to traditional egg salads, which I feel can be a bit on the heavy side, this is light, fresh, and what I think egg salad wants to be. If you look at the picture below, you’ll see that I actually first made this egg salad vegan, using…


Falafel Flatbread

Made with chickpea flour, this easy flatbread is gluten-free. Its spiced, falafel-like flavor is delicious with your favorite Mediterranean toppings!

It’s cookbook season! Yes, my new book just came out last week, but if you know me, you know that I LOVE cookbooks, and I can never have too many. More is more when it comes to food inspiration 🙂 Today, I’m excited to share a book by my friend Liz Moody (you might know her as the food editor of Mind Body Green), but she also has a great blog, fantastic podcast, and this new book called Healthier Together. I think you’ll love it! The concept of the book is that if you’re trying to eat healthier, you’re more…


Vegan Chocolate Cake

Say hello to the best vegan chocolate cake. It's moist & deeply chocolatey, with a rich chocolate frosting made from a secret ingredient: sweet potato!

Baked Oatmeal with Blueberries

This healthy baked oatmeal recipe makes for a delicious brunch! I love this blueberry version, but for a twist, swap in whatever seasonal fruit you like.

The past few days have been SO nice out! We’ve been going for long walks with light(er) coats on – feeling the glorious sunshine without being bundled up in scarves, hats, and gloves. It’s funny the things you learn to appreciate as the seasons change. So speaking of sunny thoughts, my mind is on brunch this weekend and I’m feeling fruity. With Easter, Mother’s Day, and other brunch-y holidays on the horizon, I thought I’d share one of my favorite recipes to make for a group… baked oatmeal! I love this recipe because you can assemble it ahead of time and…


Healthy Banana Bread

This easy, healthy banana bread has it all - it’s moist, nicely spiced, and simple to make. Enjoy it for breakfast or an afternoon snack!

While bananas may not be my favorite fruit, banana bread is a whole other story. When I bake banana bread, I lose all control. Just knowing that a loaf is sitting on the kitchen counter will make me come back for just one more slice all day long. It’s the perfect afternoon snack with a cup of coffee, and I love how wonderful it makes the house smell. Side note: this bread freezes well, which is how I was able to exhibit any sense of portion control as we tested loaf after loaf. 🙂 Why I Love This Vegan Banana Bread…
