beet box bakery & cafe

Processed with MOLDIV

Beet Box Bakery & Cafe in Denver, Colorado was a perfect stop for lunch with my husband Rob and buddy John5. I had the cremini panini with a cashew cheese, mushrooms, almond pesto and arugula on fresh country bread with chips and a lemonade.


arugula please!!!

As I plan my summer and look forward to touring with my husband, I remind myself that it is possible to travel and have delicious vegan food. Here is a pretty simple yet scrumptious salad of arugula, roasted butternut squash and fennel with a pumpkin seed vinaigrette that we had on tour last year in Warren, Ohio. I am so into arugula and I love seeing different uses for this peppery green.


weekly basics

This weeks “weekly basics”. I prepared forbidden rice, quinoa, brown rice, roasted carrots (from the garden), roasted red potatoes and brown lentils. Here are some salads I made using mixed greens, spinach and arugula. I added fresh cucumber, cherry tomatoes, sunflower seeds and Miyoko’s vegan cheese (no. 8 aged english smoked farmhouse). Easy peasy healthy organic lunches all week long!!!
