Healthy Happy Life

Seven-Layer BBQ Bowl

I always swoon over tall-layered dishes of seven-layer dip. I cram my chip into the bowl, trying desperately to scoop out a tiny bit of goodness from each layer. But I always fail. My chip breaks halfway through my scoop and I end up with just some creamy guacamole, a tiny bit of vegan sour cream and maybe a few black olives or onion. But the truth is this: Chips are overrated. Just pass me a spoon. And. Lets add some sweet potatoes to that bowl. And lets just eat more than our fair share of this stuff and just call it an entree, yes?

Bottom line, I think you need this Seven-Layer BBQ Bowl in your life, so lets get to it...

Weekday Donuts. Orange Cashew Cream Filled. Gluten-free + Vegan.

When I say the word donut, you probably do not think "healthy breakfast option," right? Well, it seems that donuts, (yes, I prefer donut and not doughnut), get a bad reputation for two things. 1) Being fried, super sweet, indulgent and/or generally unhealthy. 2) Not being easy to make and therefore only able to be store-bought -- or only made on weekends when you are in a Martha-kind-of-mood.

Well this recipe for my delicious, gluten-free, vegan, Orange-Vanilla-Cinnamon Donuts with Cashew Cream Filling, will hopefully smash both those silly donut stereotypes. These lovely, fluffy donuts are healthy, delicious, easy (25 minutes total!)...
