Meat Free Monday: Vegetarian Enchiladas

It might sound crazy, but I learned a lot when I went on a Pescetarian diet for a month. First of all, I became much more interested in exactly why people wanted to be vegetarian/vegan. Is there really that much wrong with the meat we all eat? So, I watched quite a few documentaries and […]

Meat Free Monday: Vegan Salsa Beans and Rice

I’m not a typical 21 year old college student. I know that. For example, for my 21st birthday, I didn’t go out to a bar and do twenty one shots – I went wine tasting with my parents. And had a blast. I wake up at 7:45 or 8:00 most weekend mornings to go workout. […]

Mom’s Spinach Dip

Happy Saturday, everyone! Fall Saturdays in the U.S. mean football. Today there are two games that my dad and brother are watching on TV. While I don’t mind football, I’m not the biggest sports person. What I do like, however, is the fact that oftentimes, football games will turn into get-togethers, complete with friends, family, […]
