    Pumpkin Spice Pancakes

    If you don’t have a waffle iron, pumpkin spice pancakes are a suitable alternative. This recipe is fantastic and also has another butter variation included. Making pancakes also has the added bonus to make them in fun and amusing shapes. Make everyone feel special by making pancakes in their initials or topping the stack with a fun shape. The best part about this recipe is that the butter and pancakes are Vegan and Gluten Free.  INGREDIENTS              Maple Nut Butter Spread: 1/3 cup nuts or mixed nuts such as pecans, cashews, almonds, or macadamia 1/2 cup cooked chickpeas drained and rinsed 2 tablespoons maple syrup 1/3 cup almond milk 1/4 cup powdered peanut butter 2 tablespoons chia seeds 2 tablespoons flaxseed…

    Pumpkin Spice Honey Butter

    If I have learned anything from Julia Childs, it’s that you can never use enough butter. Butter makes everything better. One particular love of mine is Honey Butter, and if you add the pumpkin spice sensation to it, its even better. You can use this to top your vegan waffles and pancakes or just on sliced bread. Anyway you cut it, Pumpkin Spice Honey Butter is delicious.  INGREDIENTS ½ cup butter  3 tbsp pumpkin puree 3 tbsp local honey 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice ½ tsp vanilla 5 Minutes 1 Jar No-Bake Gluten-Free & Vegetarian; Vegan option. RECIPE In a small bowl, combine all ingredients. Whip together until everything is…

    Quinoa Soup

    Soups are fantastic to make in the Winter time when you need to warm up from the inside out. The downfall of most vegetable soups is that they are mostly broth and don’t provide much energy. I like this recipe because it incorporates quinoa along with all your favorite veggies so that the consistency is more like a chili or stew than a soup. Quinoa is one of my favorite super grains because it has its own distinguishable flavor but still absorbs the flavors of the food it is cooked with. Feel free to experiment with this recipe and add/remove ingredients as you see fit! INGREDIENTS 1 Tbsp olive oil  1 yellow onion …

    Crustless Quiche

    As a big big fan of quiche, this is one of my absolute favorites when I am on a low-carb/ Keto diet. I am also a big fan of Backyard Chickens and their eggs. I often find people selling these on Craigslist and/or Facebook Marketplace; they are generally around $3/dozen but are eggcellent. Combined with spinach, mushrooms, onions, and cheese this recipe is to die for. Feel free to add any of your favorite veggies (red bell pepper would add color). INGREDIENTS 2 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil 3 Cloves Garlic (minced) 3-4 Green Onions (1/2 cup sliced) 1/2 Bell Pepper – orange or red (1/2 cup diced) 2 cups Button Mushrooms…
