Chicken and Strawberry Salad

This summer salad has everything one would need for a perfect summer salad. Plump red strawberries and BBQ'd chicken combined on the same plate. It's low carb, gluten-free, and packed with protein but its a perfect combination of sweet and savory. I used shredded cheddar but feel free to use [...]

Vegan Quinoa Burrito

This lovely little wrap was a delicious and filling dinner. A perfect balance of creaminess from the cashew cheese and a little bit of crunch from the broccoli. You can opt to use soft tortilla wraps if you want a more traditional wrap but I love these pitas. They are [...]

Vegan Tex-Mex Casserole

My kids gave me an excellent vegan cook book for Mother's Day and I have been looking forward to trying them out. It can be difficult to find low carb vegan or vegetarian foods as they are all high in carbs because most of the meat alternatives are beans and [...]
