eats

Welcome to my recipes page!

When I first started eating healthy, and even more so when I became a vegetarian/vegan I had no idea what to eat.  Lunchtime would come, and I’d find myself feeling so overwhelmed that I’d just want to give up and run to the nearest healthy restaurant.  Obviously this did not serve my pocketbook very well.  Besides, who wants to be dependent on someone else for healthy food?  It was time I showed myself that I could learn to eat healthy on my own.

Thankfully, I started reading healthy living blogs, which gave me a plethora of ideas for meals and snacks.  As I began copying the foods I saw other bloggers eating, I also developed a vision for creating my own tasty recipes.

I believe that cooking doesn’t have to always be complicated or time consuming.  Most of the recipes listed below are quick dinners that can be thrown together in under a half hour.  You’ll also find that some aren’t even recipes at all, but simply easy meal ideas.  Included are both my own creations as well as recipes that I tweaked or adapted from others (original source is noted).

Enjoy!!
