I’m on a mission to use my grill as many times as I can before fall! So I made these lemon-pepper grilled cauli steaks! .
.
You can peep my IGTV to see how I did it! Just grilled the seasoned “steaks” over medium heat (~350F) along with some lemons I quartered. Once the cauli was done I squeezed some of the grilled lemon juice over them, added extra pepper, a little olive oil, parsley and pine nuts! .
.
I honestly was feeling than inspired today so I just told myself to open the fridge and see what came to me. I’ve been wanting to give this a try so here we are! .
.
Hope your having a wonderful Hump Day!

TACO TUESDAY 🌮🙌🌱 .
.
FEATURING: Vegan Street Corn Salad! 
There’s so much summer in this and it’s so tasty 😋 .
I made it party sized so feel free to cut this recipe in half! Or throw yourself a little party, you deserve it! .
.
3 ears of corn - grilled or boiled
2 limes
1 small red onion
1/2 cup cilantro 
2-3 tbsp vegan mayo 
2 tsp cumin
2 tsp chili powder
S+P
(Optional)
1 lg tomato
1 bell pepper
1 avocado
.
You basically cut the corn off the cob, cut everything else up and stir it together. Perfect with tortilla chips or a great add on to tacos 🌮😋👍🏽
.
PS: posting a video of me making it on my IGTV so go enjoy! Happy Tuesday!!! #tacotuesday

Food is obviously a passion of mine and so is making sure that everyone gets a chance to eat! If you watch my stories you know I love volunteering with @midohiofoodbank and #TheKindnessFactory (along with @social_native) is trying to log a million #ActsOfKindness so I thought I'd share a little of what I do! Here's a behind the scenes look at what it's like to help out at the @Krogerco food pantry. Alright, friends let me see what you do! @RKapusta09, @AllisonStieglitz, @Abby935, and @NourishedWithNina I'd love if you could share something small or big you do for other people and go log it in at TheKindnessFactory.com so they can reach their goal and spread the love! #SocialNative #Kindisthenewcool

Weekend Plans: turn my patio into a reTREAT, sip on mimosas and soak up the summer while it’s still here! .
.
These @drinkretreat juices are 100% juice which means they don’t water down my mimosa AAANNNDD they taste amazing 😉 They come in some great flavors and, if you’re skipping the alcohol, pair really well with tropical La Croix for a MOCKmosa 🙌💕 So go ahead and #retreatyourself !
.
Hope you have a great weekend friends!!!

CONFESSION || I’m the worst at meal planning. 🤦🏽‍♀️🙅🏽‍♀️I’m literally successful 1-2 weeks a month and that’s successful in trying! So here’s a bowl of random roasted veggies with some Italian seasoned brown rice, @beyondmeat Italian sausage, and @bramisnacks balsamic Lupini beans. .
.
.
Btw these beans are tasty, come in a bunch of flavors and have the highest protein to calorie ratio 💪🏽😉 Which is amazing for those days when I haven’t planned, but I’m also trying achieve “balance” 🧘🏽‍♀️✌🏽

How I look when’s there’s gluten-free, vegan donuts 🍩🌱😁 .
.
I used to not post pictures of me on here because I didn’t like a lot of things about myself. Not just physical but also who I was. Now I’ve learned to praise those things instead of fight them. .
. 
To my stubbornness: thanks for helping me never give up!
.
To my big arms: thanks for being so strong 💪🏽 .
.
To my narrow hips: thanks for making it easier when we have to squeeze 4 people in an Uber
.
To my tiny eyebrows: thanks for making it easier to keep you on fleek!
.
Happy Hump Day!

QUESTION: What did we do before we started putting avocado on salads? 🤔🥑
.

I’ve been around a lot of people who have been asking me how I get protein lately. One of my favorite ways is hemp seeds, but I also enjoy legumes (I find peas are the easiest on my tummy) and nuts 🥜💪🏽
.

Other than that I just try to eat a variety of different foods and it seems to be working out just fine 😉

It’s zucchini season and one of my favorite ways to enjoy it is zucchini fries 🍟😋 .
.

Just cut zucchini, batter in a egg replacer (I like to use vegan mayo), rolled in seasoned bread crumbs (I used half crumbs from my failed oat bread, some nuts and 2 tbsps of Italian seasoning). Then baked them at 425F for 20 min ✨🙌🏽

1/2 cup sugar
1 cup @earthbalance 
1 tsp vanilla 
1/2 tsp baking powder
Pinch of salt
1/2 cup water (or so) .
1. Combine your dry ingredients and wet ingredients separately minus the water.
2. Combine the combined wet and dry ingredients together and slowly add in water until it just forms a ball. 
3. Chill for at least an hour.
.
For the blueberries .
Combine 5 cups blueberries, 1/2 cup sugar, 3 tbsp all purpose flour and the juice and zest of one lemon.
.
1. Preheat oven to 350F. 
2. Press the crust into the pie dish making sure the corners aren’t too thick.
3. Scoop in the blueberry mixture.
4. Bake for ~1 hr. Or until golden brown and bubbly

Hope your Friday is Truly amazing 😉

I’m completely obsessed with any citrus @trulysparkling, especially this grapefruit one👌🏽💕 Since I can’t have beer this is my go to light, bubbly beverage! It’s like La Croix, is low in sugar, calories, alcohol and it’s bubbly! Are you obsessed too? What’s your favorite flavor???? .
