Protein Cookies: Double Peanut Butter Cookies

As promised, I am back with another variation of my homemade protein cookies. And these are my favorite! I looooooove peanut butter cookies so much, and while I can usually justify eating an entire batch of my favorite recipe by telling myself that it has protein… I really shouldn’t. This recipe, however, has 6 grams of…

Protein Cookies

Sugar is my weakness. I have always had such a sweet tooth- more like a sweet set of dentures. I can eat an entire row of Oreos without even thinking. But apparently, that’s “not healthy”… I also need to eat more protein. Up until recently, I tried to eat around 50 grams of protein- essentially…

Lazy Berry Smoothie

This is super simple to make (kind of a cheat recipe, if we’re being honest) and has tons of vitamins; this is a great way to start the day or as a sweet dessert.  I have just finished my first semester of college, and I’m exhausted. Exhausted and a little chubby. Not chubby, honestly, but…

Peanut Butter Protein Oatmeal

Simple Chocolate Nicecream

Sometimes, you need ice cream. Or, really, you want ice cream, something cold and sweet and indulgent and full of chocolate. You probably never need ice cream (but I’m not a nutritionist or God, so I really couldn’t say for sure…) In my tiny college town, there’s one place to buy vegan ice cream. The selection…

Vegan at College: How to Hack It

Peanut Butter Cookies

I love cookies. I think everyone loves cookies- it’s part of human nature. But traditional cookies have problems. Butter. Eggs. FLour. Sugar. You know, the main ingredients? The ones that make cookies tasty? Yeah. They’ve got to go. When I first went vegan, I didn’t care about nutrition- I was what I call a ‘fun…

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chia Bars

I used to be the Protein Bar Princess. The Clif bar Queen. The Lady of Lärabars. Her Grace of Granola… you get the picture. They’re tasty! They’re convenient! They’re vegan! And they’re healthy, right? Right? Okay, maybe not. Maybe they’re full of sugar, and super wasteful. I started looking into different recipes for homemade protein…

Chocolate Covered Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites

I have corrupted the chocolate chip cookie. Seriously. I have removed every semblance of a cookie ingredient and reconstructed it completely. And it’s delicious. My family loves my chocolate chip cookies- you know, the regular, non-vegan, buttery, sugary kind. The kind I don’t eat. I had to find my own recipe, and I had to…

My Zero Waste Travel Kit

Recently, I started to be much more conscious of the waste I was producing- specifically how much plastic and paper I was wasting in day to day tasks. Sure, I used to think I was being green- I recycled and bought organic coffee, right? But then I started noticing every little thing- every Larabar or…
