Simple Healthy Recipes to Make At Home (Vegan!)

I‘m sure we are probably in the minority, but we’ve literally cooked every single meal at home for the entire three months we’ve been quarantined. Not even any take out! Actually, I take that back. We did order something to go once, in a moment of weakness when my husband wanted ice cream, lol! He went to pick up four pints of Salt & Straw ice cream from their store here locally and we savored every bite.

If you’re cooking at home a lot these days or looking for a few recipe ideas for delicious healthy meals, you’ll enjoy today’s post! If you follow my daughter Kylee on Instagram you may have watched her stories where she often shares the tasty food she makes.

She’s vegan and has become quite the chef, I’m always drooling over her yummy looking meals!

I asked Kylee to share a few of her go-to recipes with us on the blog today.

Enjoy (and if you’d like to see more recipe ideas like these, let me know!).

Hi guys! Kylee here. Here are three healthy recipes I love to make!

Simple Healthy Recipes to Make At Home (Vegan!)

Things on Toast: 4 Ways

When you can’t decide which toast to have for lunch, you just make them all! Bread can be a vessel for so many delicious things. Sourdough is my bread of choice, but you do you! If you’re gluten free like my mama, perhaps share your favorite gf bread in the comments? I’m sure people would love to know!

Maybe this should be a recurring series? The possibilities are endless!

  1. Avocado toast. Classic, basic, forever a favorite. My favorite is to smash it up and drizzle with extra virgin olive oil, a bit of fresh squeezed lemon juice, chili flakes, and some sea salt.
  2. Kite hill chive cream cheese, thinly sliced radish, parsley, and sea salt.
  3. Kite hill cream cheese, Firefly Kitchen Ruby Red Kraut, hemp seeds.
  4. Kite Hill chive cream cheese, heirloom cherry tomatoes, extra virgin olive oil, fresh basil, cracked pepper.

Stuffed Dates

Stuffed dates are a great easy and healthy snack! There are a million different ways to stuff dates, but this has been a favorite lately. Dates are convenient for stuffing because once you split them and remove the pit you’ve got a handy little pocket! 

I make these ahead of time and keep them in the fridge to grab when I need a bite!

To make these you’ll need:

Dried dates

Peanut or Almond butter

Cacao nibs

Freeze dried raspberries

Flaky maldon salt (optional)

To assemble them, split the dates in the middle (you can either leave one side attach or just make two halves.) spoon in your nut butter and top with cacao nibs, crushed freeze dried raspberries, and flaky salt.

Chocolate Almond Butter Smoothie

A healthy smoothie that tastes like a decadent dessert? Yes, please! 

•Maca is an amazing superfood for energy and hormone balancing that’s rich in vitamins B, C, and E. I often add it to coffee, hot chocolate, or smoothies.

•Cacao is chocolatey goodness that is rich in antioxidants, magnesium, and iron! I add it to almost all my smoothies.

Serves 2

To make this smoothie you’ll need:

•3 frozen bananas

•1 tablespoon Maca Powder

•1 tablespoon raw cacao nibs

•1 tablespoon raw cacao powder

– 2 tablespoons almond butter

•2 pitted dates

•2ish cups nondairy milk

•Pinch of sea salt

Blend it all together (I use a Vitamix!).

Optional: top with cacao nibs and shredded coconut

  5. Vanessa

    These look so good! Thanks for sharing! We’ve also only attempted to order food once and it didn’t work, hehe, oops!

  6. Cathy Holmes

    I have made almost every meal at home during this time here in up state New York. We did order a few take out meals from local restaurants to keep some business flowing their way. It has been a challenge but we shop safely at our wonderful coop where we are members. Thanks for the recipes, we are gluten free and vegan so rice cakes work well as a “base”.

    • Melissa @ The Inspired Room

      I’m seeing that our favorite local restaurants are just opening up here in Seattle, so as soon as we are able I am looking forward to supporting them as they do! I’m so glad you will enjoy the recipes!

  7. Karen Cadden
