PB&J Smoothie [Vegan/Gluten Free]

by Chelsea @ Make Real Food on March 10, 2015, 4 comments

Guys.  I love PB&J.  There is something incredibly nostalgic about it.  I also love the word nostalgic…and may have started this post with this just to use it.  Opps.   For real, though.  Peanut Butter. Strawberry jelly.  Bread.  Wonderful.   In the more recent years my PB&J fix has become more sophisticated – wait for […]

Salted Caramel Green Smoothie [Vegan/Gluten Free]

by Chelsea @ Make Real Food on February 24, 2015, 4 comments

I want to love smoothies all the time, but I go through phases.  When I’m “in” with smoothies, I’m all in – like – could eat them every single meal.  When I’m out – I’m so so far out that I don’t even want to THINK about smoothies.   One morning a few weeks back […]

Creamy Chipotle Mac ‘n’ Cheese [Vegan/Gluten Free]

I write most of my Tuesday-recipe posts ahead of time.  [Sorry to burst your bubble – nope, I didn’t get up at 5am and write this].  This allows me to reliably get you Tuesday posts, even if my week is already falling to pieces.  This works awesome for me, but sometimes I feel as if you miss […]

by Chelsea @ Make Real Food on October 27, 2013, 4 comments

I began compiling a list of recipes for my ‘Majorly Awesome Vegan/Gluten Free Thanksgiving Recipe Round Up’ on October 3rd.  Well over a month before Thanksgiving.  Because, to be totally honest, I was kind of freaking out. Nathan and I will be cooking our own Thanksgiving meal this year.  And it will be vegan.  And. […]

You can also make this in the pressure cooker!  Updated recipe with slightly different ingredients can be found by clicking here.  How have I never blogged about Taco Soup before?

[#biketowork] 7/30/13 & awesome dinner

by Chelsea @ Make Real Food on July 30, 2013, no comments

This morning’s ride was crisp! I was glad I had on a jacket! I work khakis, a dress shirt, leg warmers, jacket, gloves & helmet. On the way home I skipped the jacket…but totally could have still worn it! For dinner tonight we cooked up a bunch of our CSA veggies: I oven-grilled some squash […]

Let’s Talk about Juicing [in a Juicer]

by Chelsea @ Make Real Food on May 2, 2013, one comment

Last week I wrote a post about juicing.  Since then, I’ve been making juice every few days in the vitamix and straining it.  I was content with continuing to do this mainly because I’m cheap.  Over the weekend Nathan was mulling through sales online, and asked me if I was still interested in a juicer.  […]

Juicing. Fruits and Veggies, that is [in the Vitamix]

I do some of my oddest meal planning during acupuncture.  I guess when my brain is told to ‘stop stressing’ for 45 minutes, it thinks of food.  I’m not terribly surprised by this. Today was no exception. Whenever my immune system starts to get funky (yeah, funky may not be the best word) I crave […]

Maybe the best Pasta EVER?! [Vegan/Gluten Free]

by Chelsea @ Make Real Food on April 19, 2013, 4 comments

As I type the police in Watertown have captured the second suspect in the Boston Marathon bombing.  My heart aches for the lives lost, and the lives forever changed.  I am forever grateful for the service of police officers, EMTs, and all emergency personal who have gone through hell in the past four days to […]
