Vanilla Coconut Beverage (Dairy-Free, Date-Sweetened)

Vanilla Coconut Beverage (dairy-free, date-sweetened) featured on Carrie on Living | www.carrieonliving.com

I’ve been experimenting with making different types of non-dairy milks lately. My long-term fave has been Homemade Unsweetened Almond Milk using raw almonds, but, as it is with everything in life, it’s good to get some variety. One of the easiest alternatives I’ve made so far is Coconut Milk Beverage which is essentially water blended with… [Continue Reading]

Turmeric Bison & Collards

Turmeric Bison & Collard Greens from Carrie on Living | www.carrieonliving.com

I’ve mentioned a few times the incorporation of bison meat into my diet since moving away from a plant-based approach last May. Besides doing the research (see my recommended reading list here) and feeling convinced that adding meat back into my diet was positive for my health overall, I’ve made it a priority to find sources… [Continue Reading]

Turmeric Roasted Sprouts

Turmeric Roasted Sprouts from Carrie on Living | www.carrieonliving.com

Today is December 29th which means: 1. we all (hopefully) survived the holidays, although some events may require therapy (that’s a joke…kind of) and 2. we’re close enough to New Year’s Day that while it may be tempting to think about Resolutions that may involve cutting back on rich food, I’m moving very slowly in that… [Continue Reading]

Gluten-Free Blueberry Pancakes

Gluten-free blueberry pancakes from Carrie on Living | www.carrieonliving.com

Someone had a hankering for blueberry pancakes this weekend: Although my husband doesn’t have to be as strict as I do about being gluten-free, I do try to go that route whenever I bake. I’ve tested a lot of gluten-free pancake mixes, but this one from Vitacost.com is my absolute favorite: The mix ingredients consist… [Continue Reading]

Crockpot Roast Chicken

Crockpot Chicken from Carrie on Living | www.carrieonliving.com

Cooking dinner in the crockpot is one of my favorite healthy eating tips. I just love getting everything ready in the morning, setting the pot on low, and having it ready by dinnertime. No matter whether I’m making a plant-based meal or something with meat in it, my modus operandi is to water-saute everything in… [Continue Reading]

Date-Sweetened Pumpkin Custard (Gluten- and Dairy-Free)

Organic Pumpkin Custard from Carrie on Living | www.carrieonliving.com

My Thanksgiving is going to look a lot different than it has for the past several years. Of course, the biggest change is that Alan and I aren’t vegan anymore, so we’ll be eating turkey. The other difference is that we’re traveling to Southern California and enjoying Thanksgiving dinner as guests of family friends, something we haven’t… [Continue Reading]
