Roasted Butternut Squash and Kale Salad with Orange Sage Dressing

What I Ate This Week | A Week of One-Dish Dinners

One-dish meals are the best meals. Who has time to eat a protein and two sides separately? No one! That’s for chumps! Throw it all in a bowl. You’re a busy person. Here’s what I ate this week: Vegetarian Tikka Masala from Eating Well // I’ve never had Tikka Masala, vegetarian or otherwise, so I…

Kale and Delicata Salad with Citrus-Maple Vinaigrette Recipe

Recipe | Kale and Delicata Squash Salad with Citrus-Maple Vinaigrette

Maybe I’m just noticing this because I’m a food blogger, but it seems like people are more obnoxious than ever about food. I’ve been a vegetarian for 20 years now and I think the last time I was pushy about it was when I was 15. I don’t try to convert people; I don’t rant…

Spaghetti Squash with Garlicky Kale Pesto and Sun-Dried Tomatoes

Recipe | Spaghetti Squash with Garlicky Kale Pesto and Sun-Dried Tomatoes

It took me a long time to warm up to spaghetti squash. I think it’s because I had unfair expectations. People say they eat it because it’s just like eating spaghetti (!!!), but those people are liars because it’s really not like eating spaghetti. It’s like eating squash in the shape of spaghetti. Which is…

Buffalo Cauliflower Bites

What I Ate This Week | Buffalo Cauliflower Bites Are Your New Favorite Snack

Yes, that is a bold statement I put in the title of this post. I’m kind of bossing you around, right? But if you make them, you’ll understand. Here’s what I ate this week: Buffalo Cauliflower Bites & Ranch Dip from Nutrition Stripped // These are so good, I can’t even. They’re spicy and the…

Peach and Kale Salad with Maple Miso Vinaigrette

What I Ate This Week | Back to Normal!

Back to normal! I can barely contain my excitement! I’m finished with the recipe part of my cookbook, which means we don’t have to eat cookbook food all the time. The cookbook food was delicious, of course! But sometimes it’s nice to be able to say, “I’m not hungry for a big dinner tonight. Let’s…

Tempeh and Hummus Pita Pizzas

What I Ate This Week | Greek Pizzas with Cauliflower Hummus and (Healthy!) Fudge

Did I mention that I got Invisalign a few weeks ago? I don’t think I did. And really, I wouldn’t mention it here (because do you care? probably not), except for the fact that it seriously messes with my eating habits because you have to take the aligners out in order to eat. I can…

Blueberry Kale Pops Recipe

Recipe | Blueberry Kale Pops from Kale: The Complete Guide to the World’s Most Powerful Superfood

I never really liked milk. Just like with meat, my mom used to always struggle to get me to drink it every night at dinner. For a while, Chocolate Quik did the trick–I’d stir a few heaping tablespoons into my glass and happily drink it because it tasted more like chocolate than like milk. And…

Butternut Squash, Lentil & Kale Salad with Tahini Dressing Recipe

Recipe | Butternut Squash, Lentil & Kale Salad with Tahini Dressing

On Friday, the weather was beautiful and the sun was shining and I felt excited and hopeful that spring was almost here. I even tweeted this: I know it's mid-February, but it looks like spring outside. Hooray for sun! — Oh My Veggies (@ohmyveggies) February 15, 2013 …and then about 20 minutes later, I got…

Green Mexican Chocolate Smoothie

What I Ate This Week | Quinoa Mac & Cheese, Green Mexican Chocolate Smoothies & My Crazy Week

I always find myself telling people, “This week has been crazy.” It’s true to a degree, but also a slight exaggeration. Is it really crazy? No. Just busy. But holy heck, this week has been crazy. For real! Chris was on a business trip this week and the second day he was gone, I suspected…

Portabella & Kale Pizza with Roasted Garlic Sauce Recipe

Recipe | Portabella & Kale Pizza with Roasted Garlic Sauce

Do I post too many pizza recipes? I hope the answer to this question is no, because I’m about to post another. I just couldn’t help myself! I’m feeling pretty jazzed about pizza lately since I made two discoveries: 1) The best whole wheat pizza crust recipe in existence. 2) The magic of pizza stones….

Mellow Mushroom Thai Dye Pizza with Tofu

What I Ate This Week | End of the World Pizza

Christmas is next week! Are you ready? I’m getting there. Today I’m starting my baking and I guess I’m going to have to find some time in between the cookies and candy and fudge to wrap presents. (Or throw presents in gift bags I’m reusing from last Christmas. That’s Plan B.) Here’s what I ate…

Sweet Potato & Kale Gratin

Recipe | Sweet Potato & Kale Gratin

I feel like I’ve written about all my failed Thanksgiving sweet potato attempts several times already (or maybe it just feels that way?) and I really don’t want to bore you with yet another story about those sweet potato failures, but I’m going to do it anyway. Because without those failures this Sweet Potato &…

Citrus Sesame Kale

Recipe | Citrus Sesame Kale

So tell me, how was your Thanksgiving weekend? Did you eat a lot of food? Are you feeling a little bit sick right now? Need something light and healthy for dinner? Yeah, me too. As I mentioned on Friday, our Thanksgiving dinner consisted of some semi-Thanksgivingish things from Whole Foods (twice baked potatoes? Why not!),…

Penne with Butternut Squash & Kale Feature

Recipe | Penne with Butternut Squash & Kale

Yesterday I posted the first part of my collaboration with Rikki Snyder, a Butternut Squash & Caramelized Onion Flatbread. Today is the second part of the collaboration. It’s an easy fall pasta dish–like the flatbread, you’ll be using roasted butternut squash and caramelized onions in it, along with kale and Pecorino cheese. With the onions…

Strawberry Oat Scones

What I Ate This Week | Look, I made scones!

And I’m pretty proud of myself too. I’ve never made scones before, so I was half excited, half prepared for disaster. But it wasn’t a disaster! Blueberry Strawberry Oat Scones // See? It looks delicious, right? And these scones are vegan too! My husband ate three of them in about 10 minutes, which probably isn’t…

Kale and Sweet Potato Quesadilla

Recipe | Kale & Sweet Potato Quesadillas

There are two things you should know about this recipe: 1. The name is a lie. There’s no queso in these quesadillas. But calling them “dillas” makes them sound like something cutesy off of a children’s menu, doesn’t it? 2. Yes, if it sounds familiar, it’s because I made these with leftovers from my Sweet…
