  • Veggies Don’t Bite

    Thank you so much for including my raw zucchini noodles and asparagus fries in your write up! What a great group of recipes. I’ll be checking the others out for sure!

  • Love the cauliflower pizza crust!! Makes pizza tasty and healthy!!

  • I just made a meatloaf with all veggies— lentils, carrots, red beans, onion, etc. I couldn’t believe it turned out with the same texture and color as meatloaf. The problem is I have no idea what to call it! Veggie loaf just sounds gross.

  • I’ve been meaning to try that cauliflower rice. Is it really good? I just made chocolate cake with beets and avocado! Pretty proud of that one!
