No need to spend a lot of money eating a fancy vegan sandwich at your favorite restaurant when you can easily (and affordably) make them right at home with your Magic Bullet!

Soups that are versatile are the best because you can enjoy them all year long!

These fresh cucumber rolls are one of my favorite healthy and delicious appetizers. Thin slices of cucumber are filled with creamy light feta cheese flavored with dill weed and lemon juice.

Cucumber Gazpacho

What in the world is gazpacho?! I’d never heard of it until my friend told me about it just the other day. It’s basically a vegetable soup served chilled that originated in southern Spain. It’s especially popular in the summer months due to its refreshing nature. I usually don’t make many soups during the summer months, but this I will do! There are many variations, including some that use tomato, grapes, or cucumbers. I decided to make a cucumber gazpacho […]

The End of Summer: A Watermelon-Cucumber-Lime Flavored Goodbye

Oh Summer. We loved you. We will always love you. Some things just epitomize summer in the best of ways.

Is there anything more summery than a juicy watermelon dripping down your face and arms? I’m pretty sure there isn’t. So, to celebrate the end of Summer, I give […]
