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...

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...

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...

We loveeee our morning smoothie. Genuinely look forward to it everyday! Not only does it make us feel good, but we love trying every flavor combo imaginable. If you are going to regularly have smoothies (which, when done with the right balance of nutrients, we highly recommend to everyone as a way to up their health game), you have to mix it up! 

Switching out fruits and veggies to whatever is in season is one way to do this. Another way is to play around with spices, adaptogens, or herbs like cinnamon, cacao powder, maca, parsley, etc. Lastly, get creative with different toppings. The options are endless from gra...

In the summertime, it’s all about the cool, light, refreshing foods. We find that we (and mostly everyone) naturally gravitate toward meals like this naturally this season; it’s just what our bodies want! A fresh black bean salad totally fits the description.



This black bean salad is super easy and quick to throw together, because all you have to do is combine a few ingredients and you’re good to go. We love having this on hand in the fridge to add to salads, as a side in our bowl for lunch or dinner, as a taco topping, or simply as a dip— also making it great to bring to parties.



This is an awesome recipe to m...

I don't know about you, but we could literally dive into a bowl of this veggie-loaded lentil pasta. And did we hear pesto?  If there's pesto, we're in. This recipe is seriously one of the EASIEST we have on our blog, and it's so so good.

Bare Nutrition is all about finding ways to say yes to all foods. PASTA included (We're Italian, c'mon we practicaly have pasta in our blood). We also are all about finding ways to take comfort foods with virtually no nutritional content (aka starchy, refined carbs) and making them nutritionally dense meals. Exhibit A: this lentil pasta.

Lentil pasta is the best thing since sliced...

Yep. We made CHEESECAKE BARS and they taste AMAZING. What's even more amazing? These are a raw vegan treat with no added sugar. A creamy, satisfying, slightly sweet dessert that provides healthy fats and protein and completely satisfies cravings. Don't make these because they're healthy. Make them because they're delicious! 

It takes just about 15 minutes or less to throw together the "batter," then all you have to do it put 'em in the freezer and let them set. They will make about 10 -12 small cheesecake squares-- the perfect amount to keep on hand as an afternoon or evening treat for the week.

What really sets th...

      Who doesn't like mac n cheese? Better yet, who doesn't like baked mac n cheese? It's a classic comfort food. Once the seasons change and the temperature begins to drop, we start craving more comforting foods. By "we," I don't just mean Rachel and me, but I mean all of us. It's an actual, biological thing. Growing up, it was something we always had at Thanksgiving and a few other special occasions, but being that it's so rich, it was not ever frequent. Typical baked mac n cheese is made with macaroni pasta, loads of cheese, butter, flour, and milk or cream. So, how can we enjoy this delicious comfort food mo...
