Spiced Squash and Almond Butter Squares

  Ahh, fall in New England. You could argue there’s no better time to live here, and I would probably agree with you. These photos just don’t do the colors justice.

Baked Coconut Tofu With a Crispy Coconut Crust // Dairy & Gluten Free Recipe

As a vegetarian and a dancer, one of my biggest dietary struggles is getting enough protein.
