Potato & Lentil Soup, and Fresh Greens with Jane’s 3,2,1 Dressing


I know…I know…I’ve been going crazy with soups and lentils lately! I apologize for being redundant…but, I love soups this time of year! They warm you from the inside out…they’re yummy…and they’re SO EASY to prepare & serve! Plus, I love that I can just dig through my produce drawer and throw in anything and [...]

Vegan Pumpkin Pancakes & My “Oil-Free Challenge”


This past Monday I started a 28 day “Oil-Free” challenge. I wanted to support and join my fellow HealthyMamma Kim on her Engine 2 Vegan Challenge but I’m already vegan…I’ve been dairy free for almost 2 years and meat free for a couple of months…prior to that I was still consuming fish on occasion.  So, obviously, the [...]

28 Day Challenge and “Tuna” Salad

Counter Culture

I can’t believe it’s the middle of October! I usually feel a lot more prepared for the holidays by now. The fact that it was still over 100 degrees in Texas until the beginning of October has just really made the fall season fly by! Now..it’s the middle of October, which for me, means I [...]

Veggie and Udon Noodle Bowl


I’ve been a busy HealthyMamma in the kitchen these past few days! Unfortunately, not everything that I’ve made has been a success. To be completely honest, some of it was not even edible! On Sunday morning I ventured into my THIRD attempt at creating vegan whole grain waffles…only to end up literally scraping them out [...]

Vega Giveaway and another Forks over Knives Giveaway!

Forks Over Knives and Vega Giveaway

Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a really great weekend! I haven’t posted in a while but I have a few legitimate excuses. First, I haven’t wanted to try any new recipes because our refrigerator broke almost 2 weeks ago, so I haven’t felt like doing much besides the basics in the kitchen! We are lucky to [...]

Vegan Banana Nut Pancakes and our FOK give-away reminder!


I love weekends! I especially love weekends this time of year! There are lots of college football games to watch on Saturdays…in my opinion, there’s nothing better than college football…BOOMER SOONER!!  The weather is starting to get a little cooler…yes, we are a little slow to catch on to the cool weather thing here in [...]

Forks Over Knives Giveaway and Some of My Favorite Veggie Recipes!


I think I’m detoxing!  I haven’t had meat or dairy (maybe in minuscule un-noticeable portions) since the day after I wrote my FOK post.  Don’t even ask.  I had one last event that I had to get all meaty at, and let’s just say I paid the price.  Yuck!  But, since then, I’ve really been sick with [...]

Forks Over Knives Gave Me Something to Think About

Zane and Milk

Excited that it was finally available on Netflix, last night I watched the documentary, Forks Over Knives.  I’ve been a fan of the Engine 2 Diet and The China Study for a while, but I didn’t realize how closely related this movie is to both of them. To put it simply, the movie is not [...]

MexiCali Burritos – Forks Over Knives

Burrito...just before wrapping...YUMM!

I’m a big fan of documentary films. I enjoy sitting down to watch a documentary and learning about a subject that I don’t know enough about. Or, gaining even more knowledge on a subject that I’ve already researched…because, after all…knowledge is power…right? If you have not yet seen the documentary Forks Over Knives …you should…it [...]
