White Bean Winter Vegetable Soup

Can’t stop, won’t stop with these veggie soups! I swear, vegetable-based soups are what get me through these cooler winter months. If I’m ever feeling a little low with the colder temperatures and it getting dark out so earlier, I just heat up some veggie soup and I’m instantly comforted. This Creamy Winter Vegetable Soup […]


Butternut Squash Lasagna

Recipe and photo @mindfullbymadeline I’ve been an enormous lasagna fan my whole life, but I always feel pretty icky after eating a traditional lasagna. My stomach hurts, and I end up feeling sluggish and unproductive. That’s why I’m constantly on the hunt for healthier (but still delicious) lasagna alternatives. And this one gets a gold […]


Pumpkin Crisp

I know we’re approaching the end of fall, but I still can’t get enough pumpkin! And this Pumpkin Crisp is satisfying all of my cravings. Think apple crisp but with savory pumpkin flavor and pecan notes. This recipe is free from refined sugar and instead calls for coconut sugar! My only caution for you with […]


EG Favorite – Vegan Ramen Miso (soy-free)

This Vegan Soy-Free Miso Ramen has been getting me through these chilly(ish) LA November days. We developed it for the SOUP Cleanse, and it’s been a MAJOR hit. It’s entirely gluten-free, plant-based, and contains more veggies than any other ramen we’ve ever made. It has zucchini, cabbage, cauliflower, scallion, carrot, and nori – I like […]


Quinoa Lentil Sweet Potato Salad

I don’t know about you, but I’m operating on salads only until Thanksgiving. Okay, that might not be entirely true. But I am trying to eat as many salads as possible to boost my nutrient intake ahead of the indulgent holiday. If you’re thinking about doing the same, this Quinoa Lentil Sweet Potato Salad is […]


Moroccan Chickpea Spiced Teff Salad

Have you been sleeping on teff? Teff is a fine grain, no bigger than a poppy seed. It comes in a variety of colors like white, red, and dark brown. Teff is one of my all-time favorite ancient grains because it’s high in fiber, packed with calcium, gluten-free, and super easy to digest. I love […]


Spiced Coffee Cake

Recipe and picture @mindfullbymadeline What’s better than coffee cake for dessert after a long day? Spiced Coffee Cake for dessert after a long day! This is my favorite coffee cake recipe of all time and a major crowd-pleaser for several reasons. First, after much trial and error, we figured out how to get the PERFECT […]

Stuffed Acorn Squash

Recipe @mindfullbymadeline Move over stuffed peppers; this Stuffed Acorn Squash is my current obsession. It’s loaded with so many delicious ingredients like quinoa, mushrooms, spinach, dried cranberries, and jalapeno (to add a little kick!). This dish is super satiating because it contains fat in the form of vegan butter and feta, protein with the quinoa, […]

Savory Pesto Mushroom Tart

I’m going to let you in on a little secret. Savory tarts exist, and if you’re not eating them, you are missing out! Take this Savory Pesto Mushroom Tart, for example. It boasts fiber-fueled ingredients like almond flour, chia seeds, mushrooms, and spinach. It’s super flavorful with comforting aromas of egg and cheese. And here’s […]
