Berry Vegan Protein Shake

In keeping with the theme of healthy foods for the upcoming new year, today’s post is about one of the staples in my smoothie-making kitchen: protein powder.

Lentil Coconut Stew with Kale & Summer Squash

Lentil Coconut Stew from Carrie on Living | www.carrieonliving.com

Okay, so a lentil stew isn’t the epitome of summer cooking, but my excuse for making it now is that this recipe gets made in the slow cooker, so the house doesn’t get overheated from the oven or stovetop. And, while I used a cool new product from Pacific Foods called Bone Stock, you can… [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?

Slow-Cooker Winter Breakfast Stew

Winter Breakfast Stew made in the slow-cooker from Carrie on Vegan | www.carrieonvegan.com

Baby, it’s cold outside! Cold weather means no more green smoothies for awhile, at least not in the mornings. I was inspired recently by some of the cooked breakfast recipes and try making a breakfast stew instead. I had a bag of cranberries leftover from Thanksgiving that I used in my recipe, but you could substitute… [Continue Reading]

Vegan Baked Chickpea Burgers

Chickpea burger and salad

In yesterday’s photo food journal, I referenced these new Baked Chickpea Burgers I made: They were inspired by a giant bag of frozen organic chopped kale I got at Costco last week (actually, I bought two bags because I was so ecstatic pleased to find it): I started the burgers by thawing two large cups of the… [Continue Reading]

Quinoa Kale Saute

Quinoa Kale Saute from Carrie on Vegan | www.carrieonvegan.com

Do you ever revel in the fact that healthy, plant-based food can be so simple yet completely nourishing and satisfying? I went to a friends’ home this weekend for a potluck lunch. It was just two couples and our meal consisted of a brown rice and lentil salad made by me, a green salad, green… [Continue Reading]
