Chunky Homemade Veggie Burger

I love veggie burgers.  Who am I kidding?  I love any burger.  But these are really good.  I made the whole batch of them and then had leftovers for lunch for days.  I served mine with jalapeno mustard, Go Veggie swiss flavored slices, and plum tomato.   I think that the steak seasoning and Worcestershire […]

Cauliflower Crust Pizza

I’ve been trying to be better about eating excess amounts of grains and carbs.  After 3 weeks of very clean eating, I found that the more plant-based my diet, the better I felt.  I’ve also tried to cut dairy… but then if you do have cheese you end up using some substitutes taste great, and […]

Simple Miso Soup

I love sushi… and I love miso soup.  Even my kids love miso soup.  (Ok my daughter picks out the seaweed, but still….) I’ve bought the packets at places like Trader Joes, or Whole foods, where you get like 4 cups of miso soup to a box, and that box is a tad overpriced.  It […]

Ultimate Reset – Day 21 – Success!

Well, I did it…. 21 Days.  No coffee, no alcohol, limited dairy, and limited meat.  What an unbelievable experience. I was a runner… I ran marathons for Pete’s sake.  Yet my body never changed much.  I learned that you can’t outrun your diet.  I thought I was eating healthy… but it was the snacking, the […]

Ultimate Reset – Day 20

I’ve never really made “greens”… collard greens, mustard greens, greens in general.  I’ve put kale into things, and tried my hand at kale chips, but that’s about it. This recipe was really, and versatile.  You could use any green (collards, kale, or chard) and it’s simple to throw together.  Now, I am not going to […]

Ultimate Reset – Day 19

I had never even heard of tempeh.  Turns out it’s a fermented soy patty, originally from Indonesia.   I, however, did not travel to Indonesia.. but simply to my local Whole Foods.  I found it in the refrigerated section near vegan foods.  This is where I also found the smokey tempeh strips for the Nori Rolls […]

Ultimate Reset – Day 18

Wow… Day 18.  The time has actually flown by.  I just started on my grocery plan for next week… the first week off of the Reset.  I’m really going to miss the structure and accountability of it, but I’m excited to take what I’ve learned and keep it up! So, today I was thinking… what […]

Ultimate Reset – Day 17

So the one thing I keep hearing from people when I talk about the Ultimate Reset is that they say that “Well when you go off of it, it’ll all go back to normal”… i.e. I’ll gain the weight back and I’ll be face down in a bag of Chex Mix washing it down with […]

Ultimate Reset – Day 16

Well, I finally see a number on the scale that I haven’t seen since before I was pregnant with my daughter.   Pretty darn awesome.  I only have a few days left of the Ultimate Reset and to be honest, I’m going to be sad it’s over.  I plan on doing it twice a year, just […]

Ultimate Reset – Day 15

Day 15 was the first day of the “Restore” phase where you eliminate grains and legumes.  Yep, pretty much all fruit and veggies for the week. I found it to be a little challenging, but it could have been coupled with the fact I made my favorite chicken for the husband and kids to go […]
