Happy Labor Day Weekend to you all!
Doing anything fun? Meal prepping? 😉
We’re experiencing a heat wave here in Nevada Land, so the weekend will be spent near water with a side of all-you-can-eat sushi. In essence, we’re trying to keep it as cool as possible.
If you’re trying to keep that weekly routine of making your meals ahead of time, we.got.you!! Just because it’s a holiday weekend doesn’t mean life doesn’t happen. We’ve gotta eat, right?
Did you have a chance to check out my Double Chocolate Edible Cookie Dough I posted this week? If not, I think you’ll love it! It’s a healthier dessert recipe made using BLACK BEANS of all things! It’s truly my favorite no-bake dessert recipe to date.
On to the food! This week, we have Pesto Quesadillas with White Beans and Tomato, Roasted Sweet Potato Kale Salad with Avocado and Jammy Egg, Grilled Portobello Mushroom Burgers, Korean Tempeh Bowls, Creamy Vegetable Noodles, and Vegan Lasagna Soup.
