Vegan Burrito Bowl

People often ask me whether I eat keto. The answer is, sometimes. I don’t adhere to one strict way of eating. It hasn’t worked for me. So some of my meals are keto, some are paleo, some are pegan, some are vegan, and some are vegetarian. What they all have in common is the large amount of vegetables. This is paramount and a non-negotiable for everyone, if you ask me.

So today, I have a vegan burrito bowl on the blog. It is absolutely delicious!!! And you won’t even know there is no meat inside this dish. But you could easily make this with meat if you prefer. Just do you, and always listen to your body.

Vegan Taco Filling

I have to admit I love Mexican food!!! Unfortunately, good Mexican food is hard to come by in Mississippi. I just have to be honest, y’all. Once a month, I try to get my taco fix at Food Truck Friday in Jackson, because those are the best tacos in the state in my opinion.

But I also cook plenty of dishes at home that are inspired by Mexican cuisine. I recently made this vegan taco filling. If you’re a true fan of Mexican food, you might be rolling your eyes right now, but I encourage you to give these a try. You won’t even know there is no meat in your taco.

Chicken & Artichoke Bowl

What image comes to mind when you think of a salad? For many people that is iceberg lettuce with some watery tomatoes and a few cucumbers thrown in. Not a very appetizing image, is it? And this kind of salad is not satisfying or nutritious at all. No wonder, many people scrunch their nose when they hear the word salad. But let me tell you, those are the salads of the past. I want you to expand your definition of a salad and try something new.

Egg Roll in a Bowl

As I mentioned before, bowl recipes are one of my favorites, because you throw everything together into a bowl and serve it. There is something comforting about it - just me, my bowl and a fork. LOL.
I am a big fan of this one, because I used to love egg rolls but haven’t been able to enjoy them because of my gluten sensitivity. Give it a try and let me know what you think.

The one thing I make every week - shredded chicken

Yup, that’s right. I make shredded chicken every week. It’s so easy to make and so versatile. I can pair it with some veggies, I can throw it in a buddha bowl, or it can go on top of a salad.
Here are 2 ways to prepare it - on the stovetop or in a slow cooker. I am partial to the slow cooker version, because I can just walk away and it works with frozen chicken, too.

Thai Turkey Burger - a new twist on an old classic

Turkey Burgers have been around for a while now. At first they were an alternative to regular beef for folks who were a little more health conscious. However, today we know that it’s not so much about the beef but rather about the quality of the meat. But don’t give up on turkey burgers quite yet. Here is a fresh, new twist you will love.

The best glutenfree bread I have made so far

When I found out I had a problem with gluten a few years ago, I went on the hunt for a good gluten-free bread recipe. Well, you probably know that there are a gazillion gluten-free bread recipes on the web. Some were way too complicated, so I didn’t even attempt to make them. Some were total failures (it’s like I made a brick and not a loaf of fluffy bread. LOL). And some have become new go-to recipes, like this one.
