4th of July, the ultimate day of the year to BBQ, can come with the temptation to completely let go of your diet and healthy lifestyle. Luckily, this spread will satisfy all your holiday cravings without making you get off track!
We recently moved from New York City to a house in the suburbs which means lots of entertaining. It seems like there is always an excuse to host friends and family, including a special birthday, holiday or even just having neighbors over to get to know each other. To make it easy, I tried a bunch of different recipes for appetizers. This is one of my favorites to serve year round, especially in these last weeks of what’s officially still summer. It’s healthy, simple to prepare and a crowd pleaser.
In the summer, it’s fun to get creative with fruit for dessert. Peaches are so delicious this time of the year. While they’re fantastic on their own, I recently threw them on the grill and added some fresh banana ice cream for the perfect summer treat!
It's official. Summer is drenching us with sunny warmth, longer days, and lots of reasons to avoid being boxed in by walls and roofs. It also means it's grilling season—and vegan grilling is a worthwhile pursuit.Anyone can plop a piece of meat onto a grill. But vegan grilling takes finesse. Call it skill. Are you thinking: "What's so difficult about plopping a veggie burger on the grill?" Nothing. But why limit yourself to a burger?
It’s almost Thanksgiving, one of my favorite holidays of the year. It’s a time to gather together with family and friends and be thankful for the abundance we have in our lives. It’s also the day that many of us forget about eating healthily and usually end up feeling stuffed and remorseful. So here are a couple of my favorite recipes that can help you stay on track and still feel like you have indulged.
