Finding the right kind of healthy, simple and  delicious breakfast to keep you full and flying high until lunch without piling the on the pounds is a wonderful trick to have up your sleeve.

Some breakfasts, such as cold cereal can digest too quickly and leave you feeling light-headed and flighty by mid-morning. Adding a handful of raw nuts to your morning cereal bowl helps, but you will most likely still burn out before lunch.

Traditional breakfast foods, such as eggs, bacon and hash browns are so heavy that they bog you down, can make you sleepy and certainly don’t promote a healthy lifestyle. …read more of Best Vegan Breakfasts, Tasty and Satisfying here

Braised Tofu Sriracha and Sesame Linguine are complimentary in taste texture and eye appeal. In a marriage saucy spice and comfort food, this is perfect pairing for an intimate dinner or a scaled up for a dinner party.

Braising is a cooking technique that begins with browning the main ingredient. Seasonings, veggies liquid are added, and simmered over low heat in a covered pan.

A wonderful cooking method for tofu, tempeh, seitan and/or a wide variety of vegetables, braising does not require much attention after the main ingredient is browned. Braising is great for entertaining as, once the heat is reduced, the cook can attend to other preparations and have more time for guests. …read more of Braised Tofu Sriracha and Sesame Linguine here

Kamut Khorason Wheat, Highly Nutritious and Easier to Digest

Khorasan wheat, sometimes called Oriental wheat is an ancient grain and the term Khorasan refers to a region in the northeast of modern-day Iran, ancient Mesopotamia. This actual grain is twice the size of today’s wheat and is known for its rich, nutty flavor[1]

Kamut® has been a registered trademark by Kamut International since 1990, after Bob Quinn, a fourth generation Montana farmer with a PhD in biochemistry spent 10 years cultivating a specific variety of Khorasan wheat. In ancient Egypt, ‘Kamut’ meant ‘wheat, grain and wheaten bread.’ The reason word Kamut could be registered as a trademark was because it belongs to a dead language. …read more of Kamut Khorason Wheat, Highly Nutritious and Easier to Digest here

Many of us grew up eating frozen fudge bars and loved them!

However, as we left childhood behind and committed to the invigorating, slimming and delicious plant based diet, fudge bars were left behind, as vegan fudge bars are practically non-existent.  There is one brand I am aware of that costs about $1.50 a bar and that is if you can find them.

Don’t give up yet … it’s really easy to make your own frozen bars at home in just five minutes at a cost of only about fifty cents a bar.

A typical packaged fudge bar contains unhealthy ingredients, such as, dairy products, high fructose corn syrup (HFCS), alkali processed cocoa, carrageenan, artificial flavors and a host of other additives.[1] …read more of Awesome Chocolate Fudge Bars – Easy and Delicious! here

Pancakes are delicious, quick to the table and really easy to make!

It seems that pancakes have been with us for a very long time.

The ancient Greeks and Romans ate pancakes that were sweetened with honey and in the Elizabethan era pancakes, made from a flour and egg batter were a popular breakfast food flavored with spices, rosewater, sherry and apples.

With origins in the Middle Ages, Shrove Tuesday or Pancake Day falls on the first Tuesday before Ash Wednesday, a day of feasting before the beginning of Lent. Traditionally lots of pancakes were eaten as a way to use up eggs, milk and sugar before the 40 days of fasting during Lent.

There is evidence of pancake cookery from the Stone Age. Analysis of grinding tools from about 30,000 years ago suggests that pancakes were among the first foods that humans learned to cook. …read more of Hot off the Griddle ~ High Protein Strawberry Banana Pancakes With No Added Fat! here
