Vegan Nachos

Alas the moment we’ve all been waiting for - an easy recipe that is both delicious, filling, and environmentally friendly. I will keep the explanation short and very simple but as a Mexican who loves her cheesy nachos and smothered burritos and everything that’s creamy, I find that I usually have to make dishes that still have that cream factor without the actual dairy in it.

Sustainable ways to dress for Fall

I wanted to show you guys just how fun vintage, borrowed, second hand, and quality clothes are! In this day and age we can find accessible options to lessen our clothing footprint and make sure we are not voting for unethical behavior through the companies we support. First I want to give you guys my GO TO’s for sustainable items, second hand shops, and inter web stores that I frequent. I usually only buy second hand but there are some things I buy as new.

VEGAN MAC AND CHEESE CHILI

This dish is my all time new favorite. This is an extremely easy, filling, and nutrient dense meal for the Fall and Winter-. It’s cooked in one pot and takes little time with big pay off. Impress your plant based friends or introduce it to your friends or family that aren’t accustomed to vegan dishes and it’ll blow them away! My mom was convinced there was a ton of cheese in it. It’s creamy, warm, and so flavorful.

VEGAN GF MOLASSES COOKIES

My grandma, Sasa, truly makes the best molasses cookies there ever was. They had tons of white sugar, real butter, milk, and full gluten flour in it. I haven’t had those in about 10 years so I really cannot tell you that these are like those - but I can say that these are so delicious and hit the right spot. Haha, what a way to start this post eh?! Anyhow, molasses cookies are the perfect fall treat for me and these are incredibly easy to make!

COLLARD WRAPS ARE LIFE

Collard wraps have literally changed my life

I'm not going to lie, sometimes I am really, really bad at getting all my veggies in for the day and I also get in the habit of only sautéing or baking instead of eating them fresh. My life changed one day as I decided to prep my veggies. I bought collard greens with those big beautiful leaves to put in my smoothies and when I chopped off the bottom half, realized that the top half kind of looked like a big green tortilla. I know what you're thinking. "Stevie you didn't invent collard green wraps", and I'm going to disagree, just kidding! However we all get inspired at different times and its a matter of situation
