Pumpkin bowl with cashew yogurt

A delicious, creamy, sweet breakfast to start your day! I usually make this when I happen to have some leftover roasted pumpkin or squash on hand. And, if I don’t feel like adding banana, I sub in zucchini, which makes for a less sweet, but no less tasty option. ; ) I’d love to hear what you guys think of it. Let... Read more

Plant-based milk & yogurt

I loooove MYLK! (mylk = plant-based milk) ... Almond, walnut, oat, macadamia, coconut… I use it in so many power recipes, including my delicious oatmeal, breakfast muffins and smoothies. I also heat and froth it to add to my coffee (usually oat milk). I also love to add it to my favorite evening drinks like golden... Read more

Oatmeal with cauliflower

You need to like cauliflower and it does taste a bit different from what you may be used to, but I really liked it. I’m curious to know what you think! Please let me know below the recipe. Tip: Found... Read more

Pumpkin pie oatmeal

It takes a bit more time to make oatmeal than it does to pour a bowl of cereal, but studies (and my own experience) tell us that eating oatmeal leaves you feeling full (and satisfied) for longer. The spices used here, in combination with the pumpkin and the applesauce, create precisely the warming and comforting... Read more

It’s a fixture of life in New York: waffles on a Sunday morning. At one of the trendy coffee houses. To cultivate the ultimate weekend vibe!

Rhubarb Breakfast Crumble

As a kid, I almost never ate rhubarb. Once in a while my parents would add a bit to my morning oatmeal with a bit of honey on top. But that was about it.
