I picked up basil from the grocery store the other week and they only had the basil plant. I decided to pot it in an old, glass peanut butter jar, thinking that it wouldn’t last long in my windowsill. I have tried to grow basil plants multiple times in my windowsill, but every time have been unsuccessful. Maybe because it’s quarantine and I’m home and my basil plant is getting the TLC it needs, but it is thriving in my windowsill! Now, I’m going to have to think about re-potting it in an actual pot..
My new basil plant as well as the warmer weather inspired me to make this Blueberry Basil smoothie. This recipe is gluten free, vegan, paleo, and whole 30. It only requires 4 ingredients to make!

I have been making these lentil meatballs for years and it is hands down one of my favorite recipes. It is a plant-based take on a comfort food. They make the perfect cozy recipe, but are loaded with veggies and legumes. I like topping the lentil meatballs over spaghetti squash or some zucchini zoodles with nutritional yeast.

It may be a little early, but I’m so excited to repost my Carrot Cake Muffins recipe! These Carrot Cake Muffins are my favorite spring treat.

Allow them to cool, and top with the coconut cream topping, which only requires you to blend 2 ingredients to make.

It’s about that time of year for Girl Scout Cookies. I love Girl Scout Cookies and my all time favorite flavor is Samoa. I love the coconut/caramel/chocolate flavor combo and the cookie layer adds the perfect amount of crunch. Clearly, I love samoas. However, instead of buying girl scout cookies this year, I decided to make my own healthier version.
