tahini glazed tempeh.

I’ve been dying to mix up my tempeh routine. Unbelievably Vegan Tempeh has been our go-to for the last couple of years (and it’s seriously good), but I’ve found that the sauce doesn’t always go with everything.    These tahini-glazed

grown up not-too-fruity fruit salad.

Lately, I’ve been on a mission to create some multifunctional, any-time-of-day meals, particularly options that are easy to pack for work lunches or make for a good second breakfast. (Isn’t second breakfast so essential sometimes?! It’s important that it actually

vegan ‘chicken’ salad with chickpeas.

We all have foods that take us back to specific moments in our childhood.  I have very specific memories of Jos Louis (a treat I only had at a friend’s house), orange pop (camping!), Viva Puffs (wrapped in waxed paper

making raw foods part of the way you live.

 I am a sucker for a good cookbook with gorgeous photography, simple inspiring dishes and lots of intriguing narrative backstory. Choosing Raw: Making Raw Foods Part of the Way You Eat, the newly released {almost-but-not-entirely} raw cookbook from Gena Hamshaw

quinoa salad with roasted beets and tahini sauce.

I’ll be sharing some themed posts this week on the blog – namely, how to tackle sugar cravings. It’s been coming up a lot in my practice with clients, and it sounds like the sugar monster is on a bit

fresh + green quinoa tabbouleh [and so much gratitude].

Can we just talk about gratitude for a second? I am awash with it today.  Last night, we held the launch party for the Vive Detox, a new collaborative venture between my business partner Paige and I. It. Was. Wonderful.

russet potato croquettes with roasted tomato salsa + cheater vegan cheese.

This month, I am working on compiling all of my favorite yet-to-be-blogged recipes for a little cookbook project I have in the works. This one in particular is one of my favorites. Not only does it make a great little

never buy store-bought hummus again.

My name is Amy and I’m a hummus-aholic. You are, too? Excellent. Let’s hang out.  I love hummus for several reasons, probably more reasons than I should. It’s a beautifully nourishing, fueling food: highlights of its health benefits include nearly

homemade babaganoush for cheaters.

I love a good dip, don’t you? :)  A super quick post today to share the simplest babaganoush recipe ever — so simple [and untraditional, in fact] that I worry a little about what the babaganoush purists might say. But here

buttery spinach salad with crumbled tempeh + crispy shallots.

Who says salads have to be cold, limp veggies in boring dressing out of a plastic container? Not this lady! I figure: if we’re going to work more veggies into everyday (which, let’s be serious, we could all be trying

buttery tahini dill dressing.

What’s the deal with salad dressing, everybody? For real. Have you looked at the ingredients on a bottle of the stuff recently? Scary. In order for a bottle of Catalina or Ranch or 1000 Island (yuck) to keep an even

sesame tofu with peanut butter tahini sauce.

Tell me I’m not alone in this: having peanut butter in the house can be a dangerous situation. Is this true for you, too? I’m not sure why it’s such a highly addictive substance, but it sure has a hold

acorn squash hummus.

Are you like me, holding onto squash like it’s going out of style? Secretly so sad for the day it stops being available at the farmers market? Kind of half-wishing that we could fast-forward to fall so squash can triumphantly return

8 days of christmas dips.

Not all party food has to be brutal for us; in fact, combining flavorful whole foods can create some of the most delicious potluck bring-alongs (and garner some of the most sincere compliments)! Truth be told, I probably love dips

‘unbelievably vegan’ baked tempeh.

So you have a friend/ partner/ family member who is resistant to your plant-eating ways. Perhaps they wonder aloud when you will “go back to normal” and resume eating meat. Perhaps they just just can’t get on board with the

Kelp noodles are seriously awesome. Here’s why: i) they’re raw. ii) they require very little prep time iii) they’re low in calories and high in nutrients iv) like tofu, they take on the flavour of whatever you pair them with
