Most Americans identify food in the Southern United States as being full of  high-fat animal foods, a lot of butter and cheese, and vegetables cooked in bacon grease! Growing up in South Carolina as a meat eater, I enjoyed the traditional southern dishes just as much as the next girl. My mom and I would spend hours in the kitchen together, cooking meals that were passed down from previous generations. The great feeling I remember from this time was not from the food I was eating, but the comfort I was given from spending hours at the dinner table with my family. When I became vegan, I fell in love with cooking dishes that presented a much healthier option, but did not lack in flavor, or family time! Let’s get real, no one has time everyday to spend hours painstakingly cooking a meal for their family. The solution: quick, easy and healthy meals that everyone will enjoy.

Unless otherwise noted, all the recipes below are vegan! For those out there who are not vegan or who are living with vegetarians and meat-eaters, you will also find alternative options included; however, I have found that vegans and non-vegans alike love these recipes!

    When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four
    emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove me from
    that service? Thank you!

    I’m not sure exactly why but this weblog is loading very slow for
    me. Is anyone else having this problem or is it a problem on my end?
    I’ll check back later and see if the problem still exists.
