Easy Vegan Creamy Tomato Soup

Confession: Cream of tomato soup is my one true love.

I could eat it for every meal, with or without a sandwich or salad on the side. I LOVE the texture, the taste, the way the tart tomato flavor hits the back of my tongue before the warm soup travels down my throat.

Too graphic? My bad.

But I really do love it, even on my sickest of days, it is what I crave, which is a big no-no because it contains dairy (and you don’t need dairy when you’re sick!).

Plant Based Loaded Tater Chips

When it comes to eating healthier, you should never deprive yourself of the things you love to eat. The real solution is to find “healthier” ways to enjoy your favorite foods by making substitutions. These chips are the perfect example of doing just that.

In this recipe we provide you with three ways to make substitutions to the most delicious components of loaded nachos, chips or fries. We provide you with a completely plant-based, dairy free way to make a healthy “cheese sauce”, a vegan, low fat “meaty” chili recipe, and also a recipe for baked sweet potato chips, which could just as easily be fries instead! Let’s be real, the toppings of this dish are what you are going to swoon over, don’t be shy to load them in a taco or serve them over rice.

Gingerbread Pancakes (V)

gingerbread pancakes

Is anyone else guilty of not feeling very festive this past holiday season or was it just me? Maybe it was the 60 degree weather we had here in Ohio during the week of Christmas, or my strict diet I was keeping at the time, but I had no desire for those holiday treats we all usually swoon over during the month of December.   Well fast forward to some very cold days and one winter storm later and I’m alllll about the gingerbread and hot cocoa recipes..I guess better late than never right?  This morning I took my peach pancake recipe and broke it down to it’s simplest form, added ginger and spices and transformed it into a warm and cozy gingerbread pancake.  These pancakes really are EVERYTHING; light,fluffy and spicy little pillows that are impressive enough for a holiday breakfast but yet easy enough to make on a regular ‘ole snowy Saturday morning like today. I hope you enjoy!
