plant based dinner ideas

oh, happy friday friends! we’ve been eating tons of seasonal root veggies and beans over here (though we cheated a little this week with some fresh tomatoes). i just got word from our local csa that they’ll be starting up again soon. i’m so looking forward to spring vegetables, but will try to soak up the last few weeks of winter roots as much as possible!

monday: tomato cobbler, made with my favorite biscuit recipe
tuesday: whole roasted and spiced cauliflower (sans the sauce)
wednesday: vegetarian ‘chicky’ parm (i subbed daiyga cheese and used a flax egg to make this vegan!)
thursday: chana masala with jasmine rice
friday: root vegetable hash – yum!

what was on your plate this week? any favorite recipes you’d like to share?

we follow a whole foods, plant based diet. the dinner ideas posts are a way for me to log our dinners, how we make eating this way easy, and hopefully inspire you to try some new things as well. they are always meat free, dairy free and often gluten free. you can follow the posts here, and i encourage you to share your favorite recipes with us as well!

favorite green smoothie

March 4, 2014

favorite green smoothie (2)

i pretty much drink a smoothie every day. with my favorite handheld blender, they’re so easy to make! i just pile my ingredients into a glass, hit it with the blender and slurp away. i can sip on one for most of an afternoon, in between hopping around with bear and trying to get some work done. each smoothie is usually a little different, but today i’m sharing with you my favorite green smoothie.

favorite green smoothie (3)

kale & mango green smoothie


– 1 kale leaf
– 1/2 cup mango (frozen or fresh)
– 1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla cultured coconut milk
– 2 tablespoons chia seeds
– 1/2 banana
– 1 cup almond milk (or just enough to slightly cover the ingredients)
– dash of cinnamon or cinnamon flax seed oil

directions: blend and be well!

favorite green smoothie (1)

side note! speaking of so delicious, we also recently tried their new organic coconut milk fudge bars. they are OH-mazing! 80 calories a bar means i get to have one every night. :)

are you a smoothie drinker? what are you favorite ingredients?

march desktop + iphone calendars march desktop + iphone calendars

goodbye february, hello march! if it’s too early to have an actual vase of flowers on your desk (like it is for me), i hope these illustrated vases will do until spring! enjoy your march, lovelies!

to download february’s backgrounds: click on the coordinating image above, then select your preferred size (most likely, ‘original’). right click and select ‘save as desktop background’ or download to your phone.

and just like last month, in addition to these digital backgrounds, i’ve also included a printable version!

to download: click on the image above to download the PDF calendar. print on heavy card stock (my favorite is premium presentation paper by epson). punch a whole at the top to hang or simply stack.

please note: all images, patterns and designs © bonnie christine | going home to roost. you may not reproduce, re-create or sell in any way, but please feel free to download for your own personal use. if you share on your own blog (i’d be delighted!) please direct your readers to this post to download the file. thank you!
