  1. Melissa, I’m trying ti make your choc covered pumpkin muffins and I just realized I threw away the applesauce yesterday! Can I substitute oil or something? ? I can’t go back to the store! Thanks, Kim

  2. Hi, Melissa! I’m only two weeks in to my new whole food life but I LOVE it! I made your MIL’s chickpea,spinach,mushroom stirfry and your beer bread last night and my family devoured it!! Here’s my question. We’re going out of town next week and I plan on making a few things to take with us but I wonder if you could advise me on restaurant choices by recommending a few restaurants with good choices and a few good choices at any restaurant. We Southeasterners don’t have wonderful restaurant selections they have on the west coast. Any thoughts?

    1. Thanks Kim! When I eat out, I always go for the salad with the dressing on the side. We also order pizza with lots of veggies and no cheese. There is a great website called and it lists all the vegetarian options within your area. You may want to check that out too. Thia and Indian foods are also good options since they are usually healthy. Hope that helps!

  3. Hi Melissa. It’s me, Gammy N. Cali (on FB). I was just wondering, if you make tacos, what have you used for a meat substitute? Sometimes, I will use TVP or barley or (my husband’s favorite) hominy. So far, none have particularly tripped my trigger. I was thinking about trying wheat berries next. Any suggestions?

    1. Wheat berries may work well. They do have a nutty and meaty textures. A lot of people use brown lentils or even marinated walnuts. If you do a search for walnut taco meat or lentil taco meat, you will probably get lots of good ones. I hope that helps! 🙂

  4. Melissa,

    I would like to be able to search your web page for an ingredient and get a list of all recipes that contain it. Getting 3 at a time and having to go back through posts really just sucks. Also, just a list of recipes would be great in general or under each type. It takes forever to scroll through multiple pages.


    1. Hi Renee,

      My husband created the index, so I will have to ask him. However, for now, I do tag my recipes with ingredients, so you should be able to use the search bar for that. If you are ever looking for something specific, feel free to shoot me an email and I will be happy to send you a recipe link.
