Cultured Cashew Cheese Spread

I’m a long-time fan of cultured nut cheeses, and only recently discovered how easy it is to make both nut and seeds cheese at home. This recipe is adapted from Mary’s Test Kitchen, who has wonderful how-to videos on each step of this process. I highly recommend watching all of them for a full understanding…

Savory Chickpea and Onion Pancakes

Since adopting a plant-based diet, I have found it difficult to make “healthy” pancakes (my definition of “healthy” is no ultra-processed flours) that actually hold together and become fluffy. I recently made a new friend who introduced me to chickpea pancakes, and I fell in love with them. This pancake recipe is so simple and…

Hemp Milk

I’ve been making my own nut and seed milk for years now and, up until recently, there was still something about it that seemed too hard, or not quite right. I didn’t like the idea of having to throw out almond or hemp pulp after squeezing the ground nuts and seeds in my nut milk…

Maqui Berry and Hemp Overnight Oats

If you have trouble finding time to make a delicious, healthy breakfast in the morning, I dedicate this dessert-like, overnight oats recipe to YOU. It takes just minutes to prepare and provides you with a super-filling jar of delicious nutrients to enjoy in the morning. Maqui berry is loaded with antioxidants and also contains nutrients…

Coconut-Rose Bliss Balls

Besides being delicious, these Coconut-Rose Bliss Balls are filled with high-vibe goodness. I wrote a bit about what “high-vibe” foods actually are on my first Coconut-Rose Bliss Ball Instagram post, but I’ll go over it again briefly here for those of you who don’t follow my Instagram page (@devourly.life). Again I am no expert on…

Amaranth Umami Crackers

These flavorful, crispy crackers are only made with 3 ingredients! (Does water even count?) I first made these crackers when I was looking for a healthy cracker option which, unless you’re using raw, thinly sliced veggies (which are also great), doesn’t really exist. Amaranth is a TINY grain rich in fiber, protein and manganese (a…

Apple-Quinoa “Tuna” Salad with Toasted Macadamia Nuts & Lime-Avocado Dressing

I am beyond thrilled with the amount of plant-based meat alternatives available in the market today. Recently, two of my favorite vegan food chefs, Chad and Derek Sarno (co-founding brothers of Wicked Healthy), launched the sustainable, plant-based seafood company Good Catch Foods. While many people believe consuming seafood is part of a healthy lifestyle, fish…

Lemon-Cardamom Chia Pudding

Chia seeds are one of the most versatile foods I have ever come across. Not only are they a great topping for smoothie bowls, an awesome replacement for eggs and an enjoyable alternative to poppy seeds (and how can we forget the beloved chia pet), they can also transform into nutrient-packed, delicious and super-filling pudding!…

Pepper Jack and Multi-Herb Almond Cheese

As I mentioned in a previous vegan cheese post, the flavor of cheese was one of the hardest things for me to part with during my transition to adopting a fully plant-based diet. So it was VERY important for me to fill the void that was once abundant with salt, flavor and creaminess. While I…

Vegan Chocolate Probiotic Protein Smoothie

Quick update: I recently had jaw surgery, which means a liquid diet during recovery for about 4 weeks. It also means I’ve been drinking a TON of smoothies. Between the prescription anti-inflammatories and the lack of solid food, it’s been essential for me to load up on probiotics and protein. Thankfully, it is so easy…
