Baked Strawberry Oatmeal – Vegan and Plant Based

Since starting on my plant-based journey (though my husband is still low carb dieting), I have struggled with eating oatmeal for breakfast. “It’s so good for you,” I’d lament to myself. But after a couple of days, I could no longer stomach the soggy texture, no matter how I dressed it up with fruit, maple syrup, nuts, seeds and other goodies. I knew I had to find a way to make it more palatable, and here it is… Strawberry Baked Oatmeal.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Banana Cookies – Vegan

The first thing I realized when we started a healthier diet was that I needed something sweet, stat. Yes, I know fruit is sweet, but when you’re used to eating a lot of sweets, a dessert can make the difference between sticking to your eating plan or completely bombing it. Luckily, these banana cookies were just what we needed to satisfy that aching sweet tooth. Easy Banana Cookies with Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chips

Instant Pot Pulled Pork Lettuce Wraps

In our house, we love pulled pork. Like, seriously love it. (Check out our BBQ Pork Baked Potatoes if you haven’t already.) When we go out to eat, it’s almost always to a BBQ restaurant. But when you’re watching your carbs, all those yummy sauces aren’t exactly carb conscious. They’re usually full of sugar or honey or molasses… if you use the sweet sauces, anyway. But this Instant Pot Pulled Pork is low carb friendly and great for tacos, burritos and more. The best part? You can make it in the instant pot instead of letting it slow cook all day. Winner!
