I threw this risotto together the other night, freehand-style, because I just happened to have some arborio rice leftover from making my seafood paella, and canned pumpkin in the pantry— but a bunch of you guys asked for the recipe, so I went to work at refining it to nail down a super easy recipe! This pumpkin sage risotto is gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free, and vegan, so it’s a pretty easy crowdpleaser amongst finicky stomachs.Read More
I’ve been craving all the fall harvest-y flavors and scents, so I knew I wanted to make something with the warming spice of cinnamon and sweet apples (I can only have pasteurized applesauce, as I’m allergic to fresh apples!). I had thrown some tahini in my pancakes before, and it helped add not only a deliciously nutty flavor, it helped the texture of the pancakes become even crisper at the edges yet pillowy soft on the inside— just the way I like them! These are naturally gluten-free (based in oat flour), dairy-free, vegan optional, and nut-free….Read More
When I found out that I’d be going to the Pacific Northwest to go to see Cascadian Farm for myself in person with The Feedfeed + Cascadian Farm, I knew that it would be beautiful out there— I just wasn’t prepared for how incredibly scenic it all is and also how much I’d learn about farming practices. It’s so important to know how big of a difference companies can make if they make a commitment to it, and what we as informed consumers can also do to support our food and Earth.
It was also personally just fun to see where the berries for my Blueberry Lavender Tonic came from, as well at the mixed berries for this droolworthy, gluten-free + vegan Mixed Berry Oat Crisp recipe…Read More
I have always loved flavored drinks ever since I was a kid-- there wasn't a strawberry lemonade or a fruity soda I didn't like. But as I grew up and began to love cooking and baking, I came to understand the incredible fresh flavors of REAL foods. The amazing flavor combinations you can create when playing with fresh produce and herbs really blows my mind-- and this is exactly why I am obsessed with the farmer's market, as you guys know through my farmer's market photos of cherishing all that gorgeous produce! I am so excited to share this delicious and healthy Blueberry Lavender tonic recipe that is perfect for a summery gathering.
Fun fact: I was Banza's OG blogger + recipe developer a few years back when they were still a small, new company (my butternut carbonara is the first recipe on their site and a ton more are on their blog!). It's been really exciting to watch them expand to be a household name now, and I love their fun social media initiatives they do to get people cooking creatively with their chickpea pasta. This month, they're all about #BanzaPlusPlants, and running a fun month-long challenge to cook plant-based dishes. I had been craving a vegan Thai curry dish, so this was the perfect opportunity to try combining some new flavors!Read More
I haven't baked spontaneously in what essentially feels like eons, but all I wanted the other night was something chewy and chocolatey without being overly sweet. I was just rummaging for whatever I had offhand and these just came together so quickly.
Knocked these Choco Chaga Tahini Cookies right outta the park the first go around: filled with raw cacao, chaga mushroom powder, tahini, collagen, oat flour, and date syrup, this cookie is actually kind of packed with good for you, immunity boosting nutrients! And it is SO GOOD warm with a glass of oat milk. Now, let's talk about CHAGA for a hot sec.Read More
You guys know I love me my coffee. There is nothing quite like the smell of freshly ground coffee beans and then coffee in the making. I'm non-discriminatory when it comes to my coffee too-- I appreciate a classic drip, french press, espresso, cappuccinos, and pourovers. They all have different characteristics! I used to primarily do french press at home in my old apartment because I had zero counter space to keep a grinder or other equipment, but when I moved into my new place, my housewarming gift to myself was a full pourover set and it quickly became my favorite way to brew at home. I've instagrammed this so often on Stories, and I've gotten enough messages asking how to do a proper pourover that I thought it was time to do a formal blog post!Read More
So fat balls are all the rage lately. They are definitely an awesome way to pack in the nutrients with multiple sources of superfoods in a delicious bite-sized snack. So, I made these for my mom for that exact reason!
I wasn't sure which flavors she would like, so I came up with two varieties. Thankfully, she loved both! The Cinnamon Pecan Chia with Maca smelled like a cinnamon bun and tasted like snickerdoodle cookie dough, then the Sesame Tahini Walnut tasted like halva + cookie dough simultaneously! The method to make them is the same, but I've included both variations below.Read More
I connected with Rezel because she had ordered some Golden Fuel, but little did I know at the time how talented of a recipe developer and food photographer she is! Her blog is full of innovative recipes that are not actually hard to make for how beautiful and "fancy" they may seem from the beautiful photos.
Then she made these stunning Golden Fuel Tarts that just floored us. Not only are they just beautiful to begin with, but these tarts use coconut cream and healthy nuts to make them gluten-free, dairy-free, and NO BAKE...Read More
Can I be honest for a second here? Since launching, I had really wanted to make Golden Crepes with Live 24k's Golden Fuel (a turmeric + collagen blend) because my Matcha Oat Crepes recipe is one of my most pinned recipes on Pinterest; but the day I was trying to make them, I was having a really off day in the kitchen and the crepes were turning into a crumbly mess of too thick or too thin and brittle golden failures.
So I got a little scared off of them. But when I teamed up with Simple Mills (an amazing food company that shares Live 24k's values of food without fillers) to bring you guys an easy but 💣.com healthy recipe, I was dying to try their most popular Pancake & Waffle baking mix to give these gluten-free, dairy-free Golden Fuel Crepes a go again...Read More
Baking was my first love in the kitchen. Long before I started to learn how to cook, I was using a hand mixer and learning my way through over-beating cookie dough, making cakes, and generally getting covered in flour and butter.
Then Hashimoto's happened. And while I initially tried making my own gluten-free flour to continue baking, I just found it too labor intensive and I started viewing baking as too tedious to indulge in, time-wise. So that hand mixer of mine got relegated to collecting a bit of dust, especially given how crazy things have been lately.Read More
A few weeks ago, I was lucky enough to kick off the season of giving with my feedfeed family with a community Thanksgiving meal with Vitamix in the gorgeous new feedfeed space in Brooklyn and the launch of the Vitamix Explorian Series. Each of us editors were tasked with whipping up a festive recipe, using Vitamix's Winter Spice Seasoning recipe that just screams the holidays with its dizzingly delicious festive scent and flavors full of cinnamon, ginger, cloves, pink peppercorns, orange peel, and more. There's nothing I love more than utilizing my Vitamix to simplify traditionally laborious recipes, so I decided to make an easy and healthy blender holiday spice muffin that has some sweet and some spice!Read More
I've been having SO much fun doing my "Feedfeed TV" Instagram Stories takeovers. If you guys haven't been following along yet, it's a little quick series where I show you guys one workout move and a easy, healthy recipe. This week I got to share one of my favorite lazy girl recipes: my Matcha Mini Muffins! They are made with oats and banana in a blender, so it is naturally gluten-free + dairy free, AND there are no added sugars. I also, of course, added my favorite collagen, to boost up the protein content and nutrition factor.Read More
I have been waiting forever to make this post for you guys! Bone broth is something I had been sipping and slurping since I was a teeny thang, thanks to my Korean roots. In Korean culture, that silky, rich broth is a go-to for cold weather days, sick days, and days after a rough night out. I didn't realize this back then, but bone broth is ridiculously nutrient dense and healthy.
Bone broth is also one of the foods I credit for helping heal my gut health and managing my inflammation from my autoimmune disease (Hashimoto's), thanks to the abundance of collagen and minerals that get extracted out of those grass-fed bones. So I was...Read More
Overnight oats are always such an easy and delicious breakfast option for post-workout or just a busy morning. My classic overnight oats + pumpkin overnight oats are some of my most pinned recipes on my blog, but I wanted to add one more easy overnight oats recipe to your morning repertoire-- this time, with a focus on protein and those healthy, anti-inflammatory fats!
As usual, overnight oats recipes are highly customizable to fit your dietary needs, but this recipe is inherently gluten-free and dairy-free. The protein champions in this recipe come from my favorite collagen and peanut butter, but there's also some in the pepitas and chia seeds.Read More
I'm that crazy person that thinks of their meals as a grocery cart from those old game shows where contestants would race to fill their carts with as many items as possible in 2 minutes. Whenever I make myself food at home, I think of any and all weird ways that I can boost the nutritional components of it in a delicious way-- it's like a game for me! I especially do this with smoothies, salads, and soups, because they're such easy vehicles for a variety of ingredients. This healing, gut-friendly, anti-inflammatory bone-broth based mushroom super soup is one of my favorites lately when my body is in need of easy nourishment.Read More
Eating locally has become all the more important to me in the past few years. The more I've gotten educated about nutrition and food practices, the more I've learned what is actually important versus what is just a buzzword. Eating locally has become a bit of a trendy thing, and people lump it into a bunch of healthy buzz words alongside "organic" "all-natural" "plant-based" "non-GMO." Consumers see those words and associate whatever they're buying to be healthy... but that's not exactly true.
Today, I want to share with you guys some things I've learned over the years about eating locally grown produce, and how to navigate those labels so that your dollar actually goes towards what matters and not just marketing speak. My good friend and fellow blogger Jules, of Om and the City, and I teamed up with Gotham Greens to talk about the importance of this and more about their innovative urban farming practices that...Read More
One of my favorite parts of a new season, is welcoming seasonal produce that hasn't been around in some time. And while some produce is available nearly year-round, you'll find that it never tastes quite as amazing (or is as cheap!) as when it is in season.
Eating seasonally and locally is something that is super important to me (post coming next week on that!), as there are nothing but benefits on all fronts of doing so. It's cheaper because it's easier for your local farmers to produce during optimal conditions for that produce, it's tastier because it's optimal weather conditions to create fresh flavor, AND it's more nutrient-dense during peak season than any other time.Read More
