Recipes in Review – Best of January

Happy 2017!  It’s hard to believe another year has come and gone.  Each passing year makes me want to slow down and appreciate every day knowing how quickly they pass.  After relying heavily on freezer meals post-delivery I’m back in action with a monthly review of our favorite nourishing recipes and only share what I’m sure you’ll enjoy!  So let’s get to it!:)


7 Ingredient Vegan Gluten-free Waffles have been a fun way to start the morning, but let’s be serious, I’m not making them fresh each morning!  :) We had some kitchen fun when snowed in recently and made a triple batch of these beauties.  Let them cool, layer with parchment paper, slip in a freezer bag and there you have it – quick, easy, and healthy toaster waffles!  Step aside Eggo! 😉  I love topping a beautifully toasted waffle with almond butter, bananas, and a drizzle of honey.  You can use a third or half of the coconut oil and substitute with equal amounts of applesauce if desired.


Main Dishes

We’ve been loving roasted vegetables!  Isn’t that one of the best parts of winter?!  Some of our favorite dishes have included Roasted Vegetable and Quinoa Harvest BowlRoasted Rainbow Winter Bowl, and White Bean and Brussels Sprout Stuffed Delicata Squash with Tahini Lemon Sauce.


Spring is great for fresh, crisp salads but I definitely munch my way through salads all year along.  This Warm + Roasted Winter Salad Bowl (pictured above) is super cozy and hearty.


Roasted Broccoli Sweet Potato Chickpea Salad (pictured above) comes together quickly and, as with all these dishes, makes for perfect in-a-hurry lunches throughout the week.


One Bowl Jumbo Chocolate Chunk Cookies have been whipped up many times this month for an easy chilly day treat or a fun way to end a night with friends.  To be honest, I haven’t actually made these since my hubby has claimed them as his speciality.:)


Have you cooked or created a great recipe recently that you’d like me to share?  I love trying new recipes, so please send your favorite plant-powered to for a chance to be featured in the months to come!
