It's no secret that I am not a fan of pizza, but this recipe combines all the best parts of pizza (crust and toppings) and leaves out the stuff I'm not so fond of (sauce and cheese). So basically it's a deliciously healthy vegan pizza, right?
This is a simple granola recipe with buckwheat groats instead of rolled oats or puffed corn or whatever else might be in other granola recipes. The result is a mega-crunchy cereal that is rich, filling, and surprisingly sweet.
Strawberry Banana Smoothie
It's always smoothie season, but smoothies are better than ever in the summer with all the fresh produce we can put in them. The ingredients for this particular smoothie are too simple to pass up; you're actually just sipping fruits and water, but the combination of flavors and the smooth texture are delightful.
Pecan Pie Bars
I adore this recipe for its dark sweetness and lovely taste, but also for its super simple list of ingredients. No, dates and pecans are not cheap, but the amount of calories and nutrients you get from them is pretty good for the amount.
Roasted Chickpea Salad Bowl
Roasted chickpeas are crispy and chewy, possibly spicy, easy, and cheap to make. Adding the salad ingredients was just a lovely bonus, making the chickpeas part of a more complex and wholesome meal. But you still get to eat a whole serving of chickpeas, and that's really what we're about.
Chocolate-Drizzled Cookie Dough Bites
This recipe is one I’ve been preparing for myself as a snack for a month or two. They're healthy enough to be eaten as breakfast and rich enough to be eaten as dessert.
My guest blogger/brother shares the quirkiest but coolest recipe we've had yet on Tofu For Thought: a watery, transparent 'cake' that's easy to make and hilarious to share.

Healthy Hot Chocolate Floats
This recipe is my way of justifying making hot chocolate in the hot days of the summer, or having ice cream in the winter. It involves pouring rich, dark chocolate over smooth banana ice cream. Don’t tell me your mouth isn’t already watering.
Three Wholesome Snacks
These snacks are three of my favorites, and they're all healthy, flavorful, wholesome, and full of energy. The next time you find yourself reaching for another chocolate bar or cookie, grab one of these snacks instead. If you're planning a healthier 2016, these are three great snacks to keep in your kitchen.
Clean Eating Burrito Bowl for One
This recipe is a go-to weeknight dinner for my family. My dad prepares all the ingredients (times 4 for the four of us) and lays them out in separate bowls for us to pile on our own taco salads. It's awesome. So today I share it with you all, and hopefully you can enjoy it as much as my family does.
Double Chocolate Cherry Cookies
What I love about this recipe is that the cookies are:
I'm Felicity, college junior who thinks about cooking vegan foods a lot more often than I actually cook (which is pretty much never because it's either a dining hall or microwave noodles for me).
