We're going through a little lettuce wrap phase right now. They are quick and easy, really light and healthy, yet so good and satisfying! So many different combos or flavors you could go with... and these, you haveee to try. The sauce for the tempeh is everything: a little spicy, a little sweet, and a little tangy. You will love it!

Plus, becuase we used tempeh, these are vegan and packed with plant-based protein. If you're not a tempeh fan, do this with firm organic tofu or seitan. If you're not a fan of any of that, and you are not vegan, apply the same recipe to diced chicken. No problemo.

Ok, we pretty much ALW...

We are all about the cool, crisp, and refreshing summer produce. We talk about eating seasonally a lot, and one reason why is because it gives you more variety (both in flavor and nutrient content) and brings excitement back to the food you’re eating. It allows you to shift your diet, maybe get creative with your cooking, and keep healthy meals/salads fun and delicious so you don’t get bored. 

This salad looks beautiful, but the combination of textures and flavors is amazing, too! You could eat it all on its own, add a choice of protein to it if you want (grilled shrimp would be perfect), or eat it...

We don’t fully prescribe 100 percent to any one diet lifestyle (i.e. vegan, keto, paleo), but we do love following a generally plant-based and, often, Mediterranean diet. We really enjoy all types of food and pull different great parts of various different “diet types” to eat in a way that works best for us, and one way of eating that we think is really beneficial is “Mediterranean” or “Blue Zone.”

Blue Zones are places in the world where the most people live to be 100 or more years. Parts of Japan, Italy, Greece, etc are included (if you haven’t noticed we also love making Asian and Italian recipes!). More spe...

Good thing Nonna doesn't have Instagram, Wi-Fi, or even a computer or else she might be coming after us for sharing her recipe with the world. Her sauce is THAT good, though. As most of you know, we are Italian and try to be very in touch with our heritage. We always are making efforts to learn more about our culture and carry on traditions, one of which being our grandma's authentic recipes.

Our dad is 100p Italian. His parents immigrated to the U.S. from Agrigento, Sicily shortly before he was born in Brooklyn. Our grandmother has always been an amazing cook, and if you individually asked all of her children and...

What was your favorite cereal growing up? For us, one of our favorites was Cinnamon Toast Crunch. Even drinking the sweet, cinnamon-y milk at the end was good! Yeah, yeah this sounds incredibly off-brand for us. All the cereals we ate growing up (and that are still on the market) are filled with terrible ingredients and LOADS of sugar, especially considering this was breakfast sometimes. But come on, let’s just admit that sh*t was GOOD. 

We got to talking about our childhood and how much we loved and missed cereal, which got us craving Cinnamon Toast Crunch.  When I looked over and saw two overly ripe bananas...

We are BIG carrot cake fans (especially Jill, it’s her favorite). We have been waiting to make a carrot cake for the blog, and Easter seemed like the perfect occasion. We wanted this carrot cake to be legit— dense yet fluffy, right amount of sweetness, with creamy, thick frosting. But we also wanted it to be “on brand”— a carrot cake that tastes amazing but leaves out gluten, dairy, and huge amounts of sugar. 

We searched for inspo across the Google machine, Pinterest, and some of our favorite bloggers (Minimalist Baker and Ambitious Kitchen, namely). We found good stuff, but some were too complicated, u...

We always love finding new ways to incorporate plant-based protein into our meals. What we find works best when it comes to doing this, is when it’s something that can be batch-cooked so that you can grab and add to your meals throughout the week. In this case, it’s falafel! 

This falafel is gluten free and packed with protein and flavor. They’re quick and easy to make and are a great with several different meals. For example, you could whip up a Mediterranean-inspired bowl for dinner or add it to your salad for lunch! Pair it with our creamy tahini dressing to make your meal have even more protein, some heal...

If we lost you at jackfruit, hear us out. Jackfruit happens to be an awesome substitute for shredded chicken or pulled pork, because it's texture is similar, and when not yet ripe or "young", it's practically flavorless. If you think it sounds too foreign or complicated, don't worry, we have an incredibly fool-proof hack that makes this recipe quick and easy, even for someone who's never seen a jackfruit. You can simply buy Upton's Naturals barbecue jackfruit (they also carry original/unflavored as well as other flavors and typically are found by other meat alternatives at the grocery store). We like this brand b...

Although we kinda want to boycott the Super Bowl (geaux Saints), we’re not *that* petty, so we’re coping by making some DELISH and healthy game day food. We whipped up some Asian slaw that we think you’ll love. While this recipe is perfect to bring to a Super Bowl party, it's great to make to have at home any day, too. Have it as a side with barbecue or grilled chicken, on top a salad or piece of salmon, or just all on its own. We also have a recipe for BBQ jackfruit tacos, that goes perfectly with this slaw!

It’s vegan and has none of the crap you’d find in store-bought coleslaw, plus it involves n...

Forbidden rice. The name alone makes you wanna try it, right? Just like Eve, and every other human, we always want what we can’t have. Good news is, we all can have (and NEED) this forbidden rice bowl in our lives. It’s filled with nourishing veggies, protein, and delicious toppings. You’ll definitely want this in your dinner rotation. 



So, what is forbidden rice? Its color comes from anthocyanins— aka antioxidants, just like in dark berries. It also is higher in protein and fiber and lower in calories than brown rice! Aside from the health benefits, it’s honestly just fun to cook with and looks cool. Gives a li...
