Fruit love

For the next 2 months I will consume as much fruit as humanly possible. Cherries, peaches, nectarines, grapes, strawberries, blueberries, melon… the list goes on. I only like to eat fruit when it’s in season and when I can buy it locally at markets or from the farm directly. Besides my daily apple and frozen fruit for smoothies, my kitchen does not see too much fruit in the fall and winter months. By the time April comes, I am salivating and hardly can wait to taste the sweet nectar that drips from fresh, ripe fruit.

I have been searching the net for ways to enjoy fruit and I have got to say… fruit photographs are simply beautiful!


Disclaimer: These photos and recipes are not mine. They are some of my favorites, though. I will always give the author credit. Also, these recipes may not always be vegan or clean eating. Substitute when and if needed. Enjoy!

I have been on the hunt for a homemade tortilla recipe for the past 6 months or so. I love burritos – they are definitely a food that I would consume on a weekly basis IF I had access to a vegan, clean tortilla. I have tried gluten-free, whole wheat and other store bought ones but nothing has ever stood out to my taste buds. I admit that I love white flour tortillas but choose not to eat them. The ingredient list scares me… literally.


So here I am again… searching for the best tortilla recipe. These all look amazing, by the way, and I thought I would share.

My Recipe Box


One of my favorite things to do is browse online recipe libraries and blogs to find amazing recipes to create! I have decided to share those recipes with all of you… hopefully you will find a few new favorites.

I have tried to group them by category or ingredient or theme… although some are random but equally just as great. If you have a recipe to share, please send me an email or leave a comment below!

Green with Envy

I love bookmarking recipes that I find on other blogs and websites. I was saving them on a personal file but figured you, my readers, would like to have a peek in my recipe box! This will be a regular occurrence; sometimes with a theme or an idea or a particular food. If you have suggesting of what you would like to see, comment or email me!


Out of all the recipes I have I treasure my “green” recipes the most. Kale, chard, collard greens, beet greens, mustard greens… greens are delicious!
