You might have noticed that I am posting more vegan recipes lately. It isn’t because I’m turning vegan, but rather that I appreciate a plant-based diet very much. I love fueling my body with vegetarian-based, healthy foods and acquiring vegan resources of protein (outside of soy!).


Meal prep is definitely existence changing. It just requires a little time between meal planning, food shopping and cooking food. However on a regular basis is worth it, particularly when it can help you achieve a wholesome lifestyle or lets you stick to your food-related goals.

Okay, hope you like this buddha dish as much as I did. Oh which almond butter dressing can simply be made right into a peanut butter dressing. Simply sayin’. xo!
