Tip #2: WATER
Tip #4: LOVE
“Having a garden is a lot like having children, you need to give it the care, the patience and the respect to bloom. I generally start my gardens with seedlings from an organic non-GMO nursery that ships directly to my front door. When I first put them in the greenhouse they look so small… but consistency + water + weeding + love + sunshine = the photos you see in this blog post! ;)” ~T

#meatlessmonday Week #32 Cauliflower Pizza

Cauliflower Pizza

“I love these cauliflower crusts… I love that they have a plant based version more!! I love that this company is woman owned and operated by our neighbors in Chico! I like to spray the crust with a little bit of olive or avocado oil and slightly toast it in the oven. In this version (Pizza is so versatile!) I used one of our favorite pasta sauces and spread it on top. I used artichoke hearts, white onion, beets, peppers and vegan cheese. It was so good I almost forgot to take a picture (One of my constant challenges!). Serve this baby up with a green salad or for summer flair, a fresh fruit salad! Enjoy and let me know what combination you come up with for your pizza! I think my next one will have kalamata olives in it… Mediterranean style!” ~Tanya Rose

Spicy Chipotle Jackfruit Tacos


untitled (34 of 36).jpg
“Craving carnita- style tacos? Jackfruit is for you. Very similar to the texture of pulled pork, jackfruit will blow your mind when you add a few spices to it. It’s like tofu in the sense that it’s very neutral in flavor and will soak up whatever spices you throw at it!” ~Tasha

  • corn tortillas
  • 1 T chipotle powder
  • 1 T chili powder
  • 1 T nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 t cumin
  • 1 t garlic powder
  • 1/2 t smoked paprika
  • 3 t tomato paste
  • 1 t soy sauce
  • 3 T olive oil
  • 1/2 c red bell pepper, cut into long thin slices
  • 1/2 c red onion, diced
  • salt and black pepper to taste


  1. Open up cans of jackfruit, pour out excess liquid and cut up jackfruit into small pieces long-ways, resembling pulled pork.
  2. Pour jackfruit into a large mixing bowl, add in spices and 1 T olive oil. Mix thoroughly.
  3. Heat pan to medium-high and add 2 T olive oil. Add red onion and sauté until slightly translucent (1-2 minutes).
  4. Add spiced jackfruit, sauté for 5 minutes on medium-high, stirring often.
  5. Add red bell pepper, cook for another 5 minutes, stirring often. Turn heat to low.
