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]

Red Palm Oil Roasted Zucchini

Beach Eats Photo Food Journal from Carrie on Living | www.carrieonliving.com

As I mentioned in yesterday’s Beach Eats Photo Food Journal, I’ve been playing with a new-to-me cooking oil: As I also discussed, red palm oil is unique because it is rich in vitamins A and E.

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 in Dr. Fuhrman’s new Eat to Live Cookbook (read my review of the book here) to try making a breakfast stew instead. I had a bag of… [Continue Reading]

Salad Inspirations

IMG_1368-w560

If you’re like me, then you love eating salads, but sometimes get sick of eating the same combination. That is exactly why it’s important to change up your salad fixins’! Dr. Fuhrman’s motto is “the salad is the main course” and I heartily agree, although I have to admit that I usually top out at… [Continue Reading]
