Creamy Garlic Pasta with Roasted Brussel Sprouts & Tomatoes

I am not a huge fan of tomatoes, but if you give me some fresh from the market bursting with flavor and juices then I will eat them any day. As soon as you throw them in a creamy pasta I am all over them. 

Pasta shells tossed in a creamy garlic white sauce paired with blistered, roasted cherry tomatoes and charred roasted Brussel sprouts. With fresh garlic and zesty lemon notes….

Vegan Butter “Chicken” with Tofu

There isn’t a day that goes by where I am not craving Indian food. From rich curries, buttery naan, and of course the infamous butter chicken dish. It is incredibly creamy and so flavorful from the delicious spices of garam masala. 

Of course, I had to make it vegan so that is where the tofu comes in. Tofu acts as a sponge and it does an amazing job at absorbing all the flavors of the tomato-based sauce and cashew cream. …

Friday Night Sushi Sesh!!

Friday nights (or the weekend) are the nights everyone looks forward too. Sitting in class all week is a pain so I can’t wait for long nights with friends (or staying up binge watching Netflix..LOL). OOOHH! This is the time where I give you a mini life lesson right?! You got that right. Here ya go…

HOW TO HAVE A BETTER WEEK TIP #1: If your having a bad week and everything seems to be going wrong, its best if you constantly have a positive mindset and know that things are going to better. From experience, I know that negative things in my life won’t last forever. This moment, this week, in your life is seriously a teeny-tiny fraction of your lifetime. Bad things won’t last if you don’t let them last. THINK POSITIVE! Know that you are better than this….

Double Chocolate Nut balls

I always crave something sweet right before or after I workout so I wanted to try to create something that would take less than 10 min. to make and would taste like a dessert! This really hit the spot!!

I kinda try to stay away from a lot of nuts due to their high amount of fat in them, but I have realized that I am restricting myself from certain foods if I am doing that and I am not about a restrictive lifestyle. Its important to indulge in treats like these and too not be too hard on yourself/deprive yourself of foods you love! I love nuts and I love making treats with them, and I don’t want to restrict myself from eating them….

What is this blog about?

I have never actually thought about starting a blog until yesterday. My mom suggested I start one because I always loved sharing my vegan creations with people around me and I absolutely loved trying out other peoples recipes! A blog to me always seemed like SO MUCH WORK. Having to constantly update people about my life and what new recipes I have to share, but now I love it! I may do it too much….lol. Sharing people about the benefits of being on a healthy and happy lifestyle always interested me and I can’t imagine my life without these wonderful foods that surround me! I don’t want to make this blog ALL about recipes that I have tried or created but I want to tell everybody about how incredible it is to fill your body and mind with healthy and positive thoughts and FOOD (DUHH)! My goal is to spread the message of what its like to be healthy and happy, what does it do to your body and how can I achieve that positive mindset from changing my lifestyle for the better? I want people to know what it feels like to be alive, alive from food and positive, healthy thoughts! We as people shouldn’t always have to think about the bad affects food has on us. We shouldn’t have to constantly pay attention to calories or how many carbs there are in this piece of bread! What we put into our body should always cause us to think positive and we should never have to question the affects of eating this food! We should rejoice in the fact that we are providing our boys with an abundance of nutrients….and who would not want to live longer?!
