There are some recipes that I just keep coming back to every season and this is certainly one of them. It comes from one of my most used cookbooks “at home in the whole food kitchen” by vegetarian chef Amy Chaplin. She lays this cookbook out so beautifully from a stunning breakdown of pantry essentials to dozens of DIY spice mixes and nut milks and nutrition packed recipes for every season.

With the cooler weather setting in I love to sip on warm comforting drinks. One of my favorites is this ginger and turmeric latte. If you know you like the flavors of ginger and turmeric you will love this drink, but if you don’t like the spicy bite of ginger and turmeric this may not be for you.
quinoa salad with butternut squash & kaleNo CommentsRead more
Happy fall equinox! My parents gave me a bunch of butternut squash from their garden so I decided to use it for this week’s recipe. This is a simple 2-pot quinoa salad that is great for lunches throughout the week. I’m a huge fan of making a big batch of quinoa at the beginning of the week to add to vegetables and make lunches out of it. The original recipe calls for a vinaigrette but honestly I don’t think this salad really needs it. It’s good with or without. The fresh thyme and shallots give this dish plenty of flavor!

If you’ve been following me on Instagram for a while this recipe might look familiar. I’ve shared it before as a pumpkin pie smoothie but today I am using sweet potato instead. Sweet potatoes are an excellent source of vitamin A. This smoothie alone will supply you with over 100% of your daily value! The bright colors of sweet potatoes come from antioxidants which are anti-inflammatory and possibly even lower the potential risk of heavy metal exposure.
