Dal Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

It is here! It is finally here!

I know I have been promising y’all a dal recipe for some time. And I have finally got around to posting about it. I know it makes absolutely no sense for me to be posting a warm, stew-like creature of a meal during some of the hottest days we have had thus far, but I cannot help myself! It is just so rich, so filling, and yet made of wholesome ingredients.

Plus, when warm stew-like creations ever stop me before? I’m melting and still rocking this.

Buckwheat Banana Pancakes

These pancakes are a bit life changing.

I know I’ve touched on this before, but like, I am obsessed with breakfast food. No joke. I want all the breakfast foods, sweet or savory, all the time. Eggs, pancakes, waffles, hash. You say the words and I am SO. GAME. What makes that hard is most breakfast food is hard to take to work, ya know? And I am at work for a considerable portion of my week. So even if I want breakfast food for lunch (aka, that is most days) it is damn near impossible to make my dreams a reality.

If you’ve ever had a cold fried egg, you now exactly what I am talking about.

Soaked Coconut Quinoa Porridge

There’s something so comforting about the word porridge, right? Even if it is 90 degrees outside?

I mean, the word porridge just feels nourishing, right? Much more than warmed quinoa breakfast, am I right? And even as summer begins to poke over the horizon (thank GOODNESS) I still want that comfort that a warm bowl of porridge provides.

Then again, I am the kind of person who drinks hot coffee all year round

Coconut Beans and Greens with Sriracha Cashews

I am the kind of person who craves hot coffee in 95 degree weather.

Likewise, I am the kind of person who loves a big, steaming bowl of beans even as the temperature warms up. We are in awkward times, in the beginning of April, with the temperature balmy enough to wear cutoffs one moment and then raining and dropping 40 degrees the next.

The only thing comforting in this situation is a big pile of carbs.

Almond Flour Crackers

The alternative title of this post is “how to use up all that almond pulp after making nut milk”

I have to admit, I was a little scared of making my own nut milk. I KNOW it is better for you to consume nondairy milks that do not have a lot of fillers. And I know that it is so easy/cheaper/more delicious to make your own than to buy it in the store. But I was still REALLY freaked out.

It seems like some sort of witchcraft.

Apple Cinnamon Overnight Oats

Heeyyyyy Ya!

Did I get that Outkast song stuck in your head now? For me, it’s been 3 days that I have been shaking like a poloroid picture and I cannot STOP. Isn’t that the most annoying thing ever? Trust me, there are some mornings when the song that is currently the alarm on my phone will not leave my head for the entire duration of the day. The worst is when the song is so stuck in your head that you stark lip-singing the words to the song. And totally not even notice. There may even be some slight shaking of the bum, which makes the whole experience for others even more terrifying. Cause then everyone you pass begins to think you are a freak mumbling to yourself like in the exorcist.

And yes, that actually happened to me on my commute

Chickpea Peanut Stew with Cucumber Raita

This post is sponsored by Wild Friends and Nancy’s Yogurt

Oh my just LOOK at this setup.

If you have been following me on Instagram or reading my recipes, I think y’all recognize that I LOVE me a good stew. Even in the summer, when everyone else just wants salad or some grilled chicken, I say bring on those roasty toasty kind of meals. Those meals that taste good sitting in fridge for a couple of days, the spices all mulling about for and playing off of each other. Those meals where you enjoy them more sitting in your leggings crossed legged on the couch with your fav blanket. Oh yeah.

It gets me tickled just THINKING about it.

Mediterranean Street Fries

What a way to wake your tastebuds. I swear. Fries before lies!

Ok maybe I am being a leetle bit dramatic, but these fries are where it is at! Over the past couple of months, I have made sweet potato fries religiously during my weekly meal prep. They are so easy and, I think, for the amount of time you put into them, they are worth WAY more than the sum of their parts.

That is like all of my favorite things. Work hard(ly), play hard. That’s what the phrase is, right?

Avocado Toast SMASH

Does this toast scream spring or what?!

I promised myself I wouldn’t talk about the weather, but the colder it gets, and the more it snows, the more I crave SPRING! Yeah I don’t understand why it is getting colder either. This weather makes no sense. I’m just going to sit on my hands and pray for spring.

UGH SPRING COME SOON PLEASE.
