Beans are a fantastic way to add more fiber and protein to your diet. I might come from the land of baked beans on toast but beans are actually pretty versatile in the kitchen! One of my favorite ways to prepare them is by throwing them into soups and stews. Whether you’re vegan or just looking to add more nutrient dense meals into your day then a bean soup has to be one of the most economical and convenient ways of doing exactly that. Soup is so easy to make in bulk and transport with you to work or reheat at home after a long day at the office.
The end of September is in sight, which means people are already eagerly planning their Halloween costumes and enjoying a reprieve from the scorching sun. Although it’s still pretty toasty down here in Florida, as the weather starts to turn, there’s nothing I love more than cranking the AC and enjoying a rich and warming bowl of spicy pumpkin soup.
Just because you’re a vegetarian, it doesn’t mean that you have to resign yourself to quorn and tofu day in and day out in order to meet your protein needs. Legumes and grains can offer a decent serving of protein as well as providing lots of essential vitamins and minerals. These spicy little sweetcorn fritters are the perfect way to start your day or to enjoy on a bed of greens at lunch.
Curry is something I came to associate with being unhealthy at some point in my life. Probably not long after I left university where Curry night socials were a regular weekly feature! It’s usually high in fat, high in carbs and impossible to track accurately if you’re eating out. Well although my university days are over, whilst we were on vacation I needed an idea for a meal to cook for the group who were predominantly all Brits. So I thought it was about time I cracked the case and figured out how a delicious curry could be perfectly healthy & macro-friendly. This turned out super low-fat and easy to portion out so that you can be confident you’re hitting your macros accurately. I was so happy with how it worked out!
Kale is widely recognized as a nutritional powerhouse. Coveted as a superfood ingredient in the diets of many celebs, the “queen of greens” has received a ton of hype in the media and on platforms like Goop. Despite all this though, it’s hard to get past the fact that it tastes like rabbit food!

Neither Jason or I are vegetarian, but we have both experimented with the meatless way of life before we started tracking macros. I keep talking about implementing a day of meatless macros in the house but somehow I feel a little underprepared for such a change. Basically, there’s a lot of talk and no action! But after making this cashew & mushroom taco meat on the weekend I think I’m ready to rise to the challenge.
