Last month I spoke about growing sweet potatoes because I love them so much and eat them often. This month, I am combining whole chickpeas with sweet potatoes in this month's recipe! The inspiration came from one of our fitness class participants who told me she looked up and made one of my Chickpea Salad recipes yesterday … Continue reading Baked Sweet Potato With Kale and Vegan Tahini Dressing

Apple cider is much more than a seasonal beverage—for many families, like maple sugaring, it is a … Continue reading Apples + Cider = Fall Fun!

And, I love a hummus, but not a fan eating just chickpeas by themselves! So weird. However, once I add them to a salad or combine them with other … Continue reading Chickpea Salad
