Clean and simple eating is my goal. I love to cook and enjoy trying new recipes. All recipes included cover several diet types...raw vegan, vegan, vegetarian, low carb, and ketogenic. I have tried to remember to tag the recipes appropriately, but it is what it is.

This coleslaw is great on top of the BBQ Jackfruit.
I often find myself in the kitchen. It is my goto place. It brings me comfort. It inspires me.
But, there are those days when something quick and easy is what I need. Those days happen so I prepare myself by having some vegan options available that require little of me. Like turning on the oven is about it. I had already made saffron mashed potatoes and a salad is a given my 'entree' was my cheat food. Gardein offers many very meatlike foods like turkey cutlets (my choice for today's lunch), BBQ 'chicken', fish sticks, chicken strips and crunchy chicken strips, and a host of other options. My caution lies in that the main ingredients for these foods is soy. As a woman who researches, I have learned the dangers of excessive soy. Granted these products use a non-GMO soy, which makes me feel a little bit better, but I still eat these products in moderation and am sure to eat other foods with them.
So, if you're struggling with 'going vegan' or just adding more meatless meals to your menus, Gardein can help.

There are so many vegan sites out there, but my go to site would have to be The Minimalist Baker! When I Google something like "Vegan recipe for apples" her site is usually where I end up.
Here is her recipe for the Best Vegan Apple Crisp. My husband and daughter, Sarah, loved this. I served ht warm and topped with vanilla SoDelicious Coconut ice cream.
This is one of my husband's favorites ... well, steak would beat it, but as a vegan ... this recipe is way up there.
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
I have been sharing recipes for years and finally starting putting some of our favorites on this site. I hope you find something you love!
