The Fountain of Youth

A big part of what I advocate to friends, family, and clients are the benefits of a plant based diet. I’m telling you, eating a plant based diet is the fountain of youth. For anyone that wants to look younger and feel better, it is an easy choice. I have been there, I know the […]

Shit Happens

Steph’s FitCulture was a long-time dream of mine, yet the story I am about to share never crossed my mind. It’s the type of story that you hear about in movies, but you never imagine it happening to you. Although, it may stray away from my normal topics (i.e. health, fitness, plant-based living, anti-aging), it […]

Pumpkin Pie

I don’t usually make my own pie crust – I buy either a gluten free nut crust or a gluten free regular pie crust. If you don’t care about gluten free, there are many frozen pie crusts available in the freezer section of most grocery stores. Just make sure they are vegan. Pie Filling Ingredients: […]

Cranberry Sauce

I like making my own cranberry sauce. I’ve tried buying canned and it just isn’t the same. I make the cranberry sauce with the recipe right off the bag.

For thanksgiving, pumpkin bread is always part of our thanksgiving spread but I don’t put chocolate in the bread because I […]

Vegan Biscuits

Thanksgiving would not be complete at our house without biscuits; my kids love them and I usually make extra so they can have them the next day for breakfast. I am going to be honest here..I sometimes run out of time and cut a few corners when I can if I feel that it won’t […]

Vegan Mac & Cheese

I love Mac & Cheese and it is a staple and a center piece on our Thanksgiving table. The cheese sauce recipe I am about to share with you is delicious! But I must admit, that in recent years, I have been cutting corners and buying Nomad Eats Vegan Mac & Cheese Sauce. If you […]
