Yup, I have been on a complete bagel kick these past few months. It all started when I made my first batch of homemade bagels using this easy recipe. And one of the questions I see come up a lot in regards to bagel is: Are bagel vegan? So today, I want to answer that question for you and give you a few options for how to veganize the possibly non-vegan parts of a bagel….…
What am I doing posting this warming, spiced, creamy Sweet Potato Cauliflower Soup right as summer is coming? Well, for me, pureed soups are an absolute year-round meal. And this particular vegan recipe is a spin on one of my most popular soup recipes – my Sweet Potato Soup in a Flash. And just like that recipe, this bowl has warming spices that wake up your palate, bright, summer-y citrus and the tones, colors and textures just feel very ‘any season approved’ to me.
This recipe makes one large bowl of soup – perfect for the solo diner, a la meal for one! Or you can easily double, triple or (whatever) the recipe if you are sharing this meal with some people you love. Spoons up!……
This light and fluffy Blueberry Lemon Loaf is studded with juicy, antioxidant-rich wild blueberries. A hint of lemon in every lovely bite. This loaf pairs so well with a latte or mug of tea. Perfect healthy meets decadent snack loaf. This one is a keeper!……

Today I am sharing my recipe for this Double Chocolate Chip Loaf, vegan, totally fluffy and spongy, studded with melty chocolate chips.
I was craving a chocolate muffin, but decided to go with a chocolate loaf instead, and so glad I did! This beautiful chocolate loaf bakes up like a dream and while definitely has a chocolate cake flavor, isn’t overly sweet. Pairs so well with coffee, tea or even a strawberry banana smoothie — which is what I just ate mine with. Strawberry + chocolate flavors for the win….…
Alrighty, second trimester recap!
Today I am looking back on my second trimester of pregnancy. Aka, what is usually known as the “feel good” trimester. While it was filled with so much goodness, it was anything but ordinary during such a crazy-historic time.

I’ve been on a veggie burger kick lately. So this Fiesta Black Bean Burger was another way to satisfy my craving for a toasty bun with pickles, crisp lettuce, tomato, onion and some saucey sauce on top. This burger had a melty slice of vegan cheese too. Loved these warmly spiced fiesta flavors!……

This stay-at-home period has probably been the longest stretch of my life without ordering takeout! We have been cooking at home for a few months now and I have to say … it is actually incredibly refreshing and lovely. But sometimes you get those nostalgic cravings for your faves. And Chipotle has always been a fave of mine. This Copycat Chipotle Veggie Fajita Burrito is super easy to make (yes, even with all those components!) and it definitely satisfies that giant burrito craving you may have…..…
Today’s Vegan Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies are crinkly, flat and oh so chewy.
They have a slightly underbaked texture which lends to that supreme chewiness. Studded with melty chocolate chips, a few rolled oats and crunchy, buttery walnuts to bring some texture contrast.
These cookies are decadent and easy to devour. So if you have a craving for some to-die-for crowd-pleasing vegan cookies, give these a spin……
Between my blog and my first cookbook 365 Vegan Smoothies, I have written a lot of smoothie recipes in the past ten years, plus. But even though I love how fun it is to try creative recipes, new ingredients and spins on classics – the truth is – the old-school, classic recipes are usually famous for a reason. They are just that good! They stand the test of time and trends. And this Strawberry Banana Smoothie is an absolute classic to crave.
Here is the BEST way to make it. According to me….…
Well I’m rounding the corner of my second trimester and I have made it to 26 weeks pregnant! Craziness. Happy craziness.
Less than 100 days to go! About 96 or 97 now .. even though we all know babies never come right on schedule, so I’m ready for anything at this point.
I hadn’t taken my formal pictures in a good few weeks, so it was time to pull out the tripod and my handy little remote control and snap some shots……
I whipped up this BBQ Tempeh Kale Bowl for lunch the other day and it was so satisfying and yummy that I knew I wanted to share it here on the blog.
Relatively fast and easy when you have the right prep in place, this bowl is perfect for a busy day lunch or dinner – or as we have been eating a lot of lately – linner! Anyone else into dinner super early lately?…
These days, I rarely include my name in a recipe title. But this one hit my taste buds so brightly that I just had to label it my own. This ‘Kathy’s’ Ultimate Green Goddess Salad is the green-goodness salad of my dreams.
Curly kale is coated in the yummiest green goddess dressing, and then tossed with avocado, kalamata olives, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, cucumber (or zucchini) cubes, celery and green pepper.
The combination of this dressing with the greens and fresh veggies and that pop of saltiness from the kalamata olives makes every bite end in a loud “Yummmmmmmmmmm.” Really.
So if you love a good marinated kale salad, give this one a try! (And if you don’t have time or feel like DIY-ing your dressing, I have a few options for you!)…
The first words out of my mouth when I taste-tested these fudgy, vegan Crinkle-Top Brownies…
“I’m not usually a brownie person, but oh my God these are GOOD.”
And yeah, it’s true, I’m actually not a brownie gal. I remember at high school sleepovers everyone would be devouring box-mix brownies and I was just like… meh. They were too sweet, too rich or just not my thing.
These day, I normally prefer the bite of a buttery chocolate chip or peanut butter cookie. But oh my goodness — these rich yet pleasantly buttery, totally fudgy vegan crinkle brownies may change my mind.
Need a chocolate fix? Try these!! Bonus, these are ridiculously easy to make……
I’m not even a mom to a birthed baby yet, but I already feel the Mom Shaming vibe. While I’m not out in the real world just yet (thanks pandemic) mom shaming is alive and well online. From Instagram to Facebook groups, articles and social media in general.
I’ve seen it happen to others and I’ve experienced a bit myself (from IVF to pregnancy), so I wanted to speak out about it.
It’s a Thing
Mom shame / mom guilt / mom shaming is a thing. I have often heard from experienced mom friends that mom shaming and judgement is one of the harder parts of mom-hood. That shame can come from outside sources or bubble up internally. I think it’s often a combination of both.
I knew it was coming. But during a pandemic pregnancy, can’t we all try to give each other a break?
Sharing my experience thus far, and how I plan to deal with it..
Where Mom Shaming Comes From
It is all around us. And the online presence of it can be pretty sharp, blunt and insensitive. It’s so easy to hide behind a screen. Sometimes it comes from a blatant bully – a stranger or someone you know in real life – and other times – probably more often – it comes from a well-meaning person who has no clue the pain they inflicted.
And it feels even more intense when it bubbles up from an internal source. Our own negative talk, mom guilt. Yes, we each carry shame around in some way, but luckily internal shame is the easiest to stomp out in my opinion. Working on creating self-esteem around your mom choices may be the best self-care act you can do for yourself. I mean…
…Really? Time to start building yourself up – NOW! You got this mom or mom-to-be or wannabe mom or child-free-by-choice non mom!
Opinion-Giving Isn’t New
People love to give their opinions just by nature. We all know that. And we all deal with it in LIFE. I’m 39 and I have basically acquired a thick enough skin to deal with random negativity in my everyday life.
But when it comes to being a mom, your kids, your pregnancy, your emotions around motherhood (or lack of it), your choices as a mom – it can feel especially sensitive.
So yeah, mom-shaming and beyond is a thing. Check out these articles:

Mom Shaming Reaches Far and Wide…
A few topics that you may feel it from…
- Breastfeeding or not?
- Epidural or not?
- C-section or V-birth?
- Vegan or Paleo or Whatever Diet?
- Exercise during pregnancy or not?
- Stay-at-home moms vs working moms?
- Cloth diapers vs disposable?
- Too much or too little weight gain.
- You’re naming your kid, THAT?
- You put THAT on your registry?
- You are letting your baby sleep WHERE?
- Are you doing a home birth?
- You’re STILL breastfeeding?
- Your baby bump is TOO SMALL or TOO BIG.
- Are you taking your prenatal?
- You’re sharing photos of your kid online?
- Public or private school?
- Daycare or not?
- Plastic toys or wood toys?
- Potty Training at what age?
- Sleep training or not?
- Co-sleeping or crib?
- Non-toxic or whatever you can find/afford.
- Organic food always or when you can or never?
- You’re too YOUNG / OLD to have kids.
And pandemic topics…
- You’re HAVING a baby shower in a pandemic?? You’re JUDGING me for having one?
- You wore a mask in your car?
- You didn’t wear a mask at all?
And social sharing…
- Are you posting about your pregnancy online?
- That’s too personal to share … that person doesn’t share anything.
And this one, which I heard yesterday…
- Are you actually complaining about anything pregnancy-related online — you should just be grateful. Remember when you wished you were pregnant?
…That last one hits home because I received it yesterday on Instagram. I was being pretty open and honest and vulnerable about my grief surrounding not being able to have a baby shower. Such a trivial thing, YES, but also something that so many pandemic-pregnant moms are feeling.
And those ‘just be grateful’ vibes really stung. Especially since I wake up everyday and rub my tummy and smile feeling insanely grateful in so many ways. I try so hard to express that publicly, but also — I’m human. And being pregnant during a pandemic kinda sucks. Complaining doesn’t mean you don’t have complicated feelings and sway back and forth from gratitude to being human and feeling grief.
Pregnant or not — everyone has the right to grieve something right now – no matter how trivial it may seem to others.
I think about those students without proms or graduations. Missing their friends or just feeling sad because they can’t go to their fave park to play. TRIVIAL things, but also – real feelings that are 100% ok to have and share.
“From small losses to giant ones, the world is grieving.
For many of us, facing this level of grief is unfamiliar and overwhelming, and we’re unsure how to process the intensity. Our “work hard, think happy thoughts” culture is great for a lot of things, but it makes talking about grief really hard.”– Megan Devine, therapist + author — ‘Navigating this epidemic of Grief’
How Do I Cope When I Feel Some Mom Shame?
To cope, I self-soothe: Positive self-talk. Use my backbone of self-esteem and confidence in myself. But that doesn’t always work. Some days are more tender than others.
So when that isn’t enough, I seek out my people! So a few days ago, I went into one of my many private pregnancy Facebook groups and asked about mom shaming and referenced the comment that hurt a bit. Luckily, I received 55+ comments agreeing with my emotions and response. It made me feel so much better to know I wasn’t alone. And my feelings were totally valid to share.
Some people just don’t get it — and that’s ok.
Anyone who tells you to ‘just be grateful’ – after an infertility journey, and during a pandemic where you haven’t seen literally ANYONE except your OB and cats and husband your entire pregnancy – probably doesn’t know where you are coming from when you say you are sad about no baby shower. And don’t get the symbolic nature of what the ‘baby shower’ represents in this whole pandemic pregnancy. And I know that.

For me, mom-shaming goes WAY back. Three years back when I decided I was going to make an appointment at a fertility clinic and investigate treatment options – and eventually start my treatment journey.
Most people were supportive and just curious about IVF. But there are always the mom-shamers. The people who cannot keep negative opinions to themselves.
For infertility moms, we’ve heard it all..
- Why don’t you just ADOPT?
- IVF is dangerous.
- IVF is too expensive.
- You should just accept that you might not become a mom.
- Just be happy for what you have.
- It will ‘just happen’ eventually.
- Science babies?????
- Don’t TELL people you’re kid is via IVF.
- You spent HOW MUCH on your kid? That’s nuts.
- Medication of ANY kind is so dangerous during pregnancy.
- Messing with your hormones is so dangerous. I would never do that.
- An on and on…
I chatted more about my What Infertility Feels Like moments in this post.
People Love Their Opinions… Says Jerry
It’s funny, we watched the new Seinfeld comedy show on Netflix last night and there was a segment on how people just love to give their opinions – it’s human nature. They will say just about anything just to give an opinion – even if their opinion makes no sense. Jerry explains it much better than me, lol. It was a really funny show if you need a laugh. The very last part about movie theaters had us roaring. I was crying tears it was so funny to me. But anyways…
How Will I Handle Mom Shaming Online?
It will happen. Especially with the nature of my career and passion for sharing. But I’m ready. I am so excited to share this journey. Sharing and connecting online is a BEAUTIFUL thing.
But when the online bullies chime in….
I will feel it pretty deeply for a moment. (Sensitive person problems.) Then I’ll take a deep breath and either respond or delete.
Unfortunately, you can’t delete people in real life. So my usual response is to just smile and move on. Remove myself from the situation. You can do that online too!
Don’t waste your energy on people who just don’t get it. Save your energy for the people who do get it. And love + support you without judgement.
It may be human nature to judge. But it’s not human nature to be mean. IMO.
Hurt people – hurt people.
Gossiping is a Social Activity + We All Do it Sometimes
I will always believe that people are intrinsically good and kind at their core. Gossiping doesn’t make you a bad person. From a good distance, it’s totally normal and maybe even healthy – maybe even good for you! I mean, we all make silly comments when watching reality TV or The Oscars red carpet, etc…
People are fascinating! It’s impossible to not have reactions to other people. To analyze. Even compare a little. Why do you think Instagram is so popular? Humans love to see what others are doing. I think the entire Real Housewives Series is built around drinking and judging. (Ha.) And people love it!!
I 100% agree that this world can be a serious place and we all need to have a healthy sense of humor about ourselves. But..
Some things just feel more sacred. Motherhood being one of them.
And there is a fine line between fun and socializing and being mean.
When Judgments Turn Sour..
When judging / shaming creeps (or lurches full force) into someone else’s life and relationships – that is a problem….
The difference between analyzing people for fun and creating something negative really comes from what you do with your opinions. How accurate they actually are. And where they end up. Who they affect – who they influence. Directly or indirectly.
The Root Cause?
For me, I have noticed that when I feel most confident about myself and HAPPY, I tend to judge less. And it feels GOOD. Don’t want drama. Don’t feel like I need negativity. I am more apt to celebrate others and cheer people on in my thoughts and words. And it becomes this lovely cycle of positive energy. And THAT feels so much better than anything happening on Housewives. However entertaining they are, ha.
Message to Moms and Non-Moms
It doesn’t matter if you are a mom, wannabe mom, never-want-to-be-a-mom, pet-mom, aunty, surrogate mom, grand-mom or somewhere in between. Women have so much power when they come together. They can hurt and heal together in powerful ways. So I hope the next time I think something judgemental for whatever reason, I come back to a place of love and understanding on this truth:
We are all just doing the best we can.
And we all deserve love and support and light. And if you have something negative swirling in your head, just keep it there until it fizzles away. Don’t put it our in the world without some serious thought.
Women have enough shit to deal with, mouths to feed, people to take care of, work to get done, bills to pay and dreams to conquer. I just want to build women up – and hope you will join me too in that goal.
And when all else fails, realize that you have to love yourself first. Be confidant in who YOU are. And realize all the badass things you have done in your life so far. And walk right past anyone who doesn’t see all those things too.
Love you all and sending so much support to women, moms and non-moms everywhere.
My very first mom’s day flowers EVER from my sweet friend Cat…. Women supporting women is one of my fave things ever.
pps. To the boys reading this who made it this far. I hope you take some time to appreciate this whole concept of mom-shaming. I don’t think guys and dads get it as much. (Do they?) And just acknowledging that you know it happens could really help the women in your life.
Wait, hold up. Why? Why put chickpeas in banana bread? Well this Chickpea Vegan Banana Bread is crazy good and bakes up fluffy yet dense in real banana flavor. I love that every bite includes a healthy secret ingredient… beans! Don’t tell the kids. Or the bean-phobes in your house……

When in quarantine, you end up doing random little projects like this 365 Brand Vegan Barbecue Sauce Review..
I was all set to do my southern soul bowl meal, but I needed BBQ sauce. To make things easy, I decided to skip my usual (and all time favce) DIY BBQ sauce and choose bottled. During my Whole Foods grocery delivery ordering, I was faced with three options of vegan sauce – all from 365 brand. Memphis, Kansas City and Texas. Hmmm…..
What’s the difference? Which one is the best? So many questions…
So of course, like any good food blogger, I put all three in my cart and decided to do this little review / taste test……

This is an absolute quarantine type recipe! These Mushroom Kale Pitas came together when I didn’t have much else in the fridge for a hearty lunch other than some mushrooms I wanted to use up and some leftover kale. I knew that a regular sandwich presentation wouldn’t hold these hearty warm filling all that well so into my freezer I went, and found some pita bread.
Add some garlic, pepper, hummus and some fresh crunchy lettuce too and a new fave meal was born! These were SO GOOD I will absolutely be making them again……
This Easy Cheesy Pasta Bake with Spinach and Vegan Sausage was the perfect easy and satisfying meal yesterday for an early dinner.

I ventured into making a batch of Homemade Bagels by setting my expectations pretty low. I mean, I am absolutely a bagel snob, having lived in NYC for a good number of years.

Chewy and more crispy when toasted on the outside and fluffy and light, spongy, yet dense enough to be a bagel, on the inside. If you are a bagel lover like me, take a few hours out of your day to try this simple recipe……
