Birthday Photo Food Journal & Chocolate Coconut Cookies

Birthday WIAW from Carrie on Living | www.carrieonliving.com

Oh hey, I’m 40 y.o. now(!). For whatever reason, I don’t make a big deal out of birthdays, but I kind of celebrated in little ways, like getting these flowers from the farmers’ market: B-day flowers go great with a quick breakfast of gluten-free toast, peanut butter, green juice, and cold-brewed coffee (unpictured, but I… [Continue Reading]

Chocolate Strawberry Oatmeal with Kale

Chocolate Strawberry Oatmeal with Kale from Carrie on Vegan | www.carrieonvegan.com

Please tell me I’m not the only one to cook greens with oatmeal…please, please? I had a curly kale salad with a tamarind dressing at a restaurant recently and, because the dressing was sweet, it inspired me to make a breakfast dish incorporating curly kale. This version using oatmeal, strawberries, tahini, and cocoa powder tastes like… [Continue Reading]

Dairy-Free Dilled Pea Soup

Dilled Pea Soup from Carrie on Vegan | www.carrieonvegan.com

I was needing a really easy lunch the other day and pulled together this soup using ingredients I had on hand. I didn’t even take the time to chop onion and garlic, subbing out dried versions instead. The bright green colors and flavor reminded me of warm days and the produce that’s on its way….

Low-Fat Wild Blueberry Salad Dressing

Wild Blueberry Salad Dressing from Carrie on Vegan | www.carrieonvegan.com

Is it too early to start thinking about spring salads? If not, then I have a new dressing to share: This is a lower-fat version of one of my other old favorites, my Wild Blueberry Zinger Dressing, that used walnuts and soy milk for creaminess.

Cantaloupe and spinach smoothie from Carrie on Living | www.carrieonliving.com

I really want to start using more fresh fruit in my green smoothies now that summer fruits are starting to appear at the market. Yesterday, I made one using cantaloupe and spinach that was divine.
