I really loved Almond Joys growing up (and of course I will not be eating those now) so I wanted to come up with a granola bar that would be reminiscent of that. Oh my gosh, I think I did it! The whole family really loved these and I swear you will think you are eating something unhealthy they are so good. These are even yummier the next day and they are a very moist, cake-like granola bar. Recipes and photos contributed by Jennifer Strohmeyer of Virtually Vegan Mama. more→

A twist on a classic Italian meal features baked eggplant slices stacked with cashew ricotta, balsamic infused baby spinach and your favorite marinara sauce. Just add a colorful salad and fresh whole grain bread (or a simple pasta or grain dish) for a fantastic meal. Make sure to start soaking the cashews and pine nuts for the “ricotta” well ahead of time. Contributed by Jennifer Strohmeyer, from Virtually Vegan Mama. more→
A Waldorf salad is a salad traditionally made of fresh apples, celery and walnuts, tossed with mayonnaise, and usually served on a bed of lettuce as an appetizer or a light meal. The addition of chickpeas, tart cranberries, and a seasoned mayonnaise make it even more delectable. Contributed by Jennifer Strohmeyer, from Virtually Vegan Mama.
