plant based dinner ideas

happy friday, friends! it’s still pretty early in the season for colorful veggies, so we’ve been eating a lot of green lately. asparagus, broccoli, spinach, kale and LOTS of lettuce. a salad at every meal! here’s what we’ve had this week:

monday: miso sesame squash
tuesday: quinoa crusted tempeh over lettuce
wednesday:  cauliflower risotto
thursday: powerful pesto plate yum!
friday: grilled asparagus and creamy lemon quinoa

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!

diy copper + glass vases (5)

i’ve been looking for something small and sweet to hang next to my workspace, and have finally found the answer! after roaming the isles of our local hardware store, inspiration struck when i laid eyes on a pair of copper bell hangers. i just so happend to have a couple of glass test tubes at home that would fit perfectly and snuggly inside.

the actual diy was super fast and incredibly simple. AND, it costs less than $5 bucks!

here’s what you need:

- 1″ copper plated bell hanger(s)
- 20mm glass test tube with a rim
- drywall anchor(s) (if not hanging in a stud)

directions:

remove the top curved piece by loosening the two clamp screws. using the included mounting screw, screw the base of the bell hanger into the wall (be sure to first use a drywall anchor if not drilling into a stud). attach the top curved piece back into place by tightening the clamp screws. insert the glass test tube. fill with water and a beautiful bloom! hint: i also placed a small piece of foam on the inside to secure the glass better (you can see it in the picture above). not a necessary step, but good measure for extra stability.

also pictured here are a set of new hexagon shelves by haase handcraft! it’s no secret that i have a think for honeycomb shapes, and these fill my workspace so beautifully. the pretty blackberry print is from ez pudewa and the letter tray is from ikea.

csa season is here!

May 23, 2014

csa season is here!

guys, i’m so excited. csa season is here and ours began this week! buying in to our local farm has always been one of our most favorite things to do. it ends up saves money in the long run, but if you’re familiar with CSA’s you know it can call for a pretty big chunk of change up front. which for us, means we have to plan ahead and squirrel away our dimes.  it’s part of how we live intentionally and put our priorities first.

for those of you who are unfamiliar with how a CSA (community supported agriculture) works, they are all pretty much the same. a farm allows you to buy a share of their produce early in the year and then you get a big box of local organic veggies each week. depending on your community, it’ll either be delivered to your doorstep, or you’ll have a designated place and time to pick it up each week. it’s a great way to support your local farmers, eat well and save money! our farm will be delivering a box each week from now until thanksgiving, which averages out to about $30 a week. it will supply us with all of our vegetables for the week which means all i have to grab at the store are staple items like rice, almond milk and beans.

one of my favorite things about getting our CSA share is that it easily allows us to eat what’s in season. it’s also (of course) local and organic. it introduces us to new vegetables and shapes the meals i cook each week. for a foodie like me, nothing is more exciting than opening up our box each week!

check out local harvest to find a csa near you!
