Vegan Spring Bowl

Another week past, and another blizzard. This winter is just relentless. Between that and the growing little babe in my belly, the lack of motivation to do much of anything is getting more and more real. I hope you’re better than me, but it’s really getting time for some melting and warmer weather. Who’s with …

One Pot Vegetarian Breakfast Burritos

As we get closer to baby, I have felt more pressure to make sure we are prepared to be tired and not wanting to do anything. One of the ways I’ve been doing this is by preparing meals for us in the freezer. So far I’ve gotten about a week and a half of meal …

President’s Day off is a great excuse to continue meal prepping for baby! Before I got into the kitchen today, my mom, sister, and I got out and did some shopping. We were looking for mom’s mother-of-the-bride dress for my sister’s wedding. So many exciting life events happening this year! After going to several stores, …

Island Coconut Water Smoothie

Everyday I’ve been waking up feeling hungover and nauseated. This baby girl is causing me all sorts of issues. I only wish I had figured out this trick sooner. Coconut water is extremely refreshing, and getting it without any added sugar or other ingredients makes it a natural option to help rehydrate. Shout out to …

As this little baby grows more and more, the worse my heartburn has gotten. Every ounce of me wanted to get some pizza or a veggie burger and fresh fries from our favorite local burger joint. But there’s only so far the taste of junk gets you. I’m glad we decided to stay and eat …

Cherry Banana Smoothie

Being pregnant has pros, including the ability to eat more. My breakfast has become THE most important meal of the day. I can’t go more than 20-30 minutes without eating in the morning now without getting sick to my stomach. When baby wants food, she wins. One of my go-to breakfasts to pack in some …

Chana Palak

Every time I go to the Indian buffet there is a version of palak or saag which are a spinach or other leafy green dish. They usually contain something else including chickpeas or paneer, which is a blocked cheese. It’s my father-in-law’s favorite dish and something I always steer clear of. That being said, I …

Hawaiian Smoothie

Mornings are hard when you’re pregnant and avoid eating at 2:00 AM. I’ve found smoothies are a great option for filling an upset stomach. While for a few weeks I consumed the same smoothie every morning, I realized some variety in my diet would do some good. From the typical oatmeal banana cinnamon roll smoothie …
