Black Bean Burrito

Ah, black beans. I have so many good things to say about them. They're packed with protein... high in fiber... great for your digestive tract... I could go on and on. For these black bean burritos, you can use any tortilla of your choice. My favorite tortillas for these are the wheat and corn flour tortillas [...]

Quinoa Tabbouleh Salad

This quinoa tabbouleh recipe is a little different from your average tabbouleh because: A) I added the option to use chopped spinach instead of parsley. (I prefer the taste.) B) I use quinoa instead of bulgur for it's nutritional values. (Low glycemic, gluten-free packed with fiber!) C) I added diced cucumbers and crumbled goat cheese [...]

Mango Sticky Rice

For years, I was so excited to go out for Thai food because Thai restaurants were the only place I could order mango sticky rice for dessert. For some reason, it never occurred to me to make my own... and I never realized how easy it is! For most mango sticky rice recipes, you have to soak the [...]

Zucchini Lasagna

This veggie zucchini lasagna recipe is so good you won’t even miss the meat or the pasta! And it’s much healthier than regular lasagna because it’s pasta-free (lower carbs!), and includes fat-free ricotta cheese and part-skim mozzarella cheese. Great for vegetarians or those on a gluten-free diet. I like to add fresh tomatoes to my sauce, [...]

Greek Yogurt Potato Salad

This was my first time making Greek yogurt potato salad and I’ll be honest, I wasn’t sure how it was going to turn out. I LOVE potato salad, but I tend to steer clear of it since it’s overloaded with mayo. I didn’t think it would taste as good with Greek yogurt, but I’m happy [...]

Quinoa & Oats Breakfast Bowl

For this breakfast bowl, you can use either rolled oats or steel-cut oats. Steel cut oats sit lower on the glycemic index, but they take longer to cook, at least 30 minutes. (Those on a gluten-free diet will want to make sure to use pure oats that don't contain wheat.) For the granola, I recommend [...]

Vegan Plantain Tacos with Mango Lime Sauce

A few years ago, I went to my very first vegan restaurant in L.A. with a friend of mine who was a strict vegan. While looking over the menu, I had no idea what half of the menu items were Seitan? Tempeh? It was like a foreign language. So I settled on an item that [...]

Best Restaurants in Los Angeles (Vegan and Gluten-Free Options Too!)

Part of the reason I moved to Los Angeles from the East Coast was because of the incredible selection of diverse restaurants in the city. When it comes to dining out, I generally look for places with good ambiance (modern decor, trendy vibe), yummy drink selection, and healthy food (vegetarian meals preferably, and the more [...]
