Peach season…one of my favorite seasons of the year. A couple of weeks ago we drove out to our favorite farm (if you live in the Metro DC area check out Homestead Farms) to go peach picking. My mom came with us and we were surprised because not only did they have peaches, they had… Read More Peaches – From the Tree to the Freezer to your Stomach – Yum!
Our adventures of being a vegan family has introduced us to many interesting and different flavors, textures, and foods. This past summer while vacationing in Myrtle Beach, SC, I ate a delicious pulled mock chicken salad that was made from jackfruit. It tasted delicious and the texture echoed that of pulled pork. Before that dish,… Read More Shredded Jackfruit Tacos — PETIT WORLD CITIZEN — The Nutritious Noodle
Fall has finally arrived. The leaves are changing colors and every now and then we find ourselves trapped in this glorious blur of orange, burgundy, yellow and green. The trees are swaying.

Although none of us are exactly sure why she loves it so much, or even when her oatmeal crush started, we all know that she loves her… Read More Creamy Dreamy Oatmeal
Pesto. Even sitting here typing the words make my stomach yearn for some. I fell in love with pesto about nine years ago. A dear friend invited us over for dinner and set before me a plate of pasta with a green sauce gently coating the noodles. I admit, I wasn’t so sure about green… Read More Pecan Pesto Pasta – 100% Vegan!
The very first question I get asked by my girls when my feet touch the floor in the morning is, “Mom, what’s for breakfast?” The second question is, “Mom, have you had your coffee?” I guess they understand that nothing really happens until I get my morning cup of hope! Since we have decided to… Read More My Top 6 Kitchen Gadgets I Can’t Live Without!
Greens, Greens, and nothing but greens! I love greens. I have always loved greens Maybe not as much as the green-loving witch in Into The Woods (I can’t imagine deciding to ruin people’s lives over greens), but I think I am a string second. I remember my parents having to set clear boundaries on my… Read More Lemony Sauteed Greens
