Traditionally ceviche is a dish made with seafood, however this unique version is simpler and gives you tons of flavor completely plant based!
This is one of my favorite supercheap and superfast meals – has everyone already thought of this? I take whatever Chinese leftovers I can scrounge up – mine or someone elses’s as long as they’re vegetarian – and I add up to a 10 ounce pack of Dollar store broccoli to them, and – voila! (what’s the Chinese translation for that?) Instant yummy and pretty healthy dinner – yummy because you have all the flavors from a Chinese restaurant, but way healthier because the ubiquitous oils are spread throughout a whole dinner instant of concentrated in a small portion.
If you’ve ordered (and I hope you have – it would be a great choice!) steamed tofu and veggies with sauce on the side such as the one dish in the picture, featured on most Chinese menus in the vegetarian section, you can add just a little of the sauce for flavor but use Bragg’s liquid aminos, low sodium soy sauce, sriracha sauce, etc. for the main kick.
For extra bonus points, order brown rice on the side instead of white if your Chinese or Asian restaurant offers it as an option – otherwise you can make your own.
People usually aren’t as crazy about brown rice but I have a couple secrets in that department – But that’s a blog for another time!….
This is a pretty obvious recipe but many people haven’t had the treat of a non-meat BLT yet – and that’s a shame! “Fake bacon” is available at most grocery stores now, and has come a long way in terms of flavor . Just make sure to read the list of ingredients – many companies put egg white in to make it crispier. Why make just a regular sandwich with these ingredients when the flavors are so good you can make it a double decker?
What’s tropical about this recipe, you ask? Absolutely nothing except the fact that it’s a really simple – leaving you lots of lounging time in the hammock! Ahhhh.
Nice paired with an easy cold salad such as tossed dark greens, a healthy cole slaw, 3-bean salad, pickled beets, or tomatoes or cucumbers in vinaigrette.
Not living in Hawaii means that rainbows don’t come my way frequently…so to bring myself back to the islands I decided to make my own in the kitchen!
Enter Rainbow fruit sticks!
So full of color – no filter needed!
A simple and fresh salad that is perfect to take outside to enjoy :).

A tropical salad in a glass, this veggie-full recipe from the smoothie delivery company Green Blender, is a refreshing drink especially nice for an afternoon snack or even a liquid lunch.
Ahhh… açaí (pronounced ‘ah.sigh.ee’).
A small purple berry picked from a palm tree and packed with nutrition!
These babies are filled with:
Don’t worry if you don’t live in Brazil where the berry grows- the frozen packs will give you all the nutrition.
If you haven’t shopped for acai before, check the frozen isle of your grocery store. The most common brand sold is Sambazon which can also be ordered online! Alternatively, I hear Trader Joe’s sells their own brand in stores that I have yet to try.
