eating well on the road!

It has officially been an embarrassing amount of time since I posted on the blog. I just looked at the most recent post for Toasted Quinoa Cereal and cringed that it went up on October 27. #ImSorry By means of explanation,

miso soup with garlicky lentils, kale + mushrooms.

Aaaaannnnddd… we’re back!  Thanks so much for your patience the last couple of weeks as recovering and travel have taken over blog time. I have a whole slew of fun new recipes for the month ahead (how is it almost

anti-inflammatory red lentil soup with caramelized onions.

Soup is one of those meals that always makes me feel a little taken care of: even if you don’t need the extra lovin’, there’s something comforting and lovely about a warm, easy-to-eat meal, especially when enjoyed from your favorite

star-studded pea soup shooters.

The Oscars are coming up in less than a week. Are you stoked? I am a little ashamed to say I’ve fallen behind in seeing most of this year’s nominees (perhaps it was all that cross-country moving?), but where I

two-bean-and-spinach chili.

It’s been a crazy month around here. (You too? I bet! How does December get to be so nutty, every single year?) Don’t get me wrong. I love it. I love holidays. I love holiday parties. I love to-do lists

cream of potato and leek soup.

I am obsessed with soup. I don’t know how this happened. At some point in the last month, my body decided that soup is the answer to everything: perfectly timed, as it’s starting to get a little chilly. The sweaters

raw carrot avocado ginger soup.

I’ve been noticing lately that similar themes have been popping up in my life, my sessions with clients and my conversations with strangers. Perhaps the universe has plans, or perhaps the energy of the whole world is converging in funny

curried butternut squash soup.

It’s that magical time of year where squash of all shapes and sizes is everywhere: it’s in coffee, it’s on doorsteps, and most importantly, it’s overflowing at the farmers market for less than sixty cents a pound. I am obsessed.

what to do with leftovers: green chickpea + squash soup.

The eternal leftover dilemma: what to do with all of that stuff you’ve made in your fridge when you’re darn sick of eating the same thing over and over and just can’t take it anymore. My favorite solution? The blender.

vegan cream of mushroom soup.

Until I was in my teens, I was not a huge fan of mushrooms. Their slimy rubbery texture weirded me out. Especially when it came to cream of mushroom soup, I think my dislike stems from some gross associations with

chilled cucumber soup.

The cucumber. Oh, the cucumber. It’s one of those veggies that seems so commonplace and familiar, until you start to learn about all the different varieties and uses for them… there are tons! The two main varieties are slicing (ie.

canada day red curry cauliflower soup.

Happy Canada Day [she says from below the 49th parallel]! If you’re Canadian, I hope you’re having a glorious day celebrating all things Canuck; if you’re not Canadian, I would encourage you to do something traditional like drinking maple syrup,

the best lentil soup ever.

Recently, I visited one of my favorite people, Meg, (and her also-pretty-darn-cool) husband in Toronto.  This fabulous lady and I have been the best of friends since university: she is a farmers market connoisseur, in addition to being an incredible

creamy vegan sweet potato + squash soup.

Quick! Winter is on its way out! This week might be the last chance to make oodles and oodles of soup. Once it warms up (yay!), we’ll all be searching for bitter greens and raw veggies. Take advantage of this

blended thai carrot soup.

Last week, during my adventures in juicing, I had the privilege of experiencing Gingersnaps Organics’ blended thai carrot soup. It was so yummy (and such a welcome ‘meal’ halfway through the cleanse) that I decided to try my hand at making

tomato stew with butternut squash and lentils.

Squash might just be the best veggie ever. Okay, I can’t say that. All veggies are awesome and wonderful in their own way!  But really: squash is incredibly delicious and makes any meal feel a little luxurious. They’re packed with

coconut beet ice cream.

Dessert? On this blog? I know, I was surprised, too. We don’t tend to do a lot of desserts over in the From the Ground Up kitchen. My sugar-freedom and general preference to not fuel my inner sugar-monster tend to

five-step vegan chili.

Chop.  Drop. Stir. Add. Simmer.   Really. It’s that simple! I grew up loving chili (and still do!). There’s nothing quite like a hot bowl of hearty goodness, and when it’s served without animal ingredients – and less upset digestion

blackbeans and greens soup.

Recently, I’ve been working a lot with the idea of food-as-fuel (something I think many of us are out of touch with). It’s nice to spend a little time thinking about the way we eat affects our mood and our

Due to popular demand, here’s the split pea soup recipe Amanda mentioned in yesterday’s Fridge Feature [thanks for sharing, lady!]. Perfect timing with this sudden glorious spring weather! Peas are a great balancing food: because of their ability to cleanse

a twist on miso soup.

It’s unusually Vancouver-like in NYC today: cold, rainy, windy… lacking in mountains, though. Oddly enough, I had a great catchup with a friend from the west coast over tea this morning — it felt like home! I was thoroughly frozen

I knew that this week was going to be hectic – in the best way, of course, full of rehearsals and networking events and interesting lectures – but hectic nonetheless. I’m sure that most of us know that crazy periods

sweet potato cabbage soup.

It’s hovering around freezing in NYC tonight and both Michael and I are laying low, determined to fight off what feels like the first tickles of a cold. The best remedy [at least, according to my not-so-stoked-about-meds self]? Vegetables! And
