Lovely Meals Lately + Antiracism Resources

Happy Wednesday, friends. While this has been quite a heavy week, I’m so inspired by the self-reflection and action I’m watching unfold all around me. I’ve thought a lot about how I can help inspire, educate, and be a resource during these times. It is an honor and a privilege to be able to use this platform to help spread justice.

Cookout time! We enjoyed my salmon burgers, grilled sweet potatoes, watermelon, Bubbies pickles, and this berry crisp for dessert. So divine and summery.

Overnight steel cut oats with berries and peanut butter.

My favorite buffalo tempeh with hemp ranch from Alchemy Meal Prep, which has been saving my lunch life lately. We’re donating all proceeds to Columbus Freedom Fund this week.


We’ve definitely been less into cooking and more into grabbing something quick. This dinner was a Brassica bowl with lentils and rice plus all the toppings. The homemade pita is the best!

Carrot cake baked oatmeal bars…cannot get enough. The frosting is so good on pancakes!

Smoothie with frozen blueberries, banana, and strawberries, spinach, flax, almond butter, cinnamon, collagen, and coconut water. So refreshing.


Our house veggie burgers for Burger Night at Alchemy Kitchen (4-8pm Friday)!

Avocado brownies that taste like straight fudge. So satisfying and delish straight from the fridge!

Pancakes with fruit, peanut butter, and maple syrup plus eggs and micro greens on the side.

Chickpea lemon rice soup for quick lunches.

Power mac and cheeze with peas and broccoli that looks totally unappetizing but was actually super good.

I hadn’t made my vegetable shrimp curry in a while and it totally hit the spot! It comes together pretty quickly, too. Gotta have naan on the side.

Here’s to listening, learning, and taking meaningful action this week.
