How to Make Blanched Almond Butter and “Do Almonds Have Lectins?”

Maneuvering your way through what nuts you can eat and what nuts you can’t is a tricky talent on a lectin-limited diet.

Jamaican Curry Chickpea Burgers w/ Mango Yogurt Sauce (vegan with Plant Paradox & gluten-free options)

Ever since falling in love with aquafaba’s magical abilities, I’ve been left with one question: “what the fuck do I do with all these chickpeas?” If I’m being honest, I don’t really like chickpeas. They’re not particularly bad, it’s just that they’re not particularly good either. They’re dry, wonky to eat (do I choose a…

Nut-Free Vegan Mozzarella (lectin-free & gluten-free)

Y’all, I have missed burritos. Since seriously limiting my wheat intake, a good burrito is few and far between.

Keto-Vegan White Chocolate (sugar-free, gluten-free, & Plant Paradox-friendly)

White Chocolate is kind of that one food that’s forbidden by every single diet ever. It’s high in fat, it’s full of dairy, it’s mostly sugar, blah blah blah. You know how it goes. Well I say: fuck that. We can make anything fit our lifestyle – white chocolate is no exception. Thus, it’s my…

For the past two years, avocado smoothies have been one of my go-to breakfast & post-workout foods, as they’re creamy like a milkshake, nutritionally packed (depending on what you add, of course), and loaded with healthy fats, which fulfills every part of my body – not just my stomach. Having gone through changes in dietary…

Grilled Portobello Lettuce Burgers (Plant Paradox friendly, vegan, gluten-free)

Do you know what I’ve missed the most from eating predominately lectin-free? Burgers. And I’m not even talking about beef burgers, I’m talking about really good veggie burgers.

Homemade Coconut Yogurt Parfait (grain-free, vegan, & Plant Paradox Friendly)

Little sings a cute breakfast for two like yogurt parfait.

Crispy Buffalo Cauliflower Wings (vegan, gluten-free, & Plant-Paradox friendly)

Cauliflower wings are a staple in the vegan world. Not necessarily in the sense that vegans eat them every day, but in the sense that they’re a testimony that “we vegans also eat indulgent, fried bar food.” Because let’s be honest, we all have those select nights where we just want to pop into a…
