Did you know there’s an unwritten rule in the online world that if you ever bring up “cheese sauce” in a conversation without also including a recipe, it’s grounds for some serious backlash? I learned this the hard way in the Well Your World Facebook group, so today, I’m making amends. It’s incredibly versatile, healthy, and super-tasty; I literally put it on everything. I consider this cheese sauce one of my “core concept foods”; that is, foods I like to always have jars of on hand for a quick, clean, satisfying meal with little to no thought and minimal time required. I’m going to show you how to make two of my favorite variations of this sauce. Click for the recipes!

Now you can also have fun on the 4th of July!

You and I both know that everything is cuter is bites, so today we’re making some vegan, oil-free “Meatloaf Bites” that are so easy for serving and entertaining. You guys have been asking for finger food and potluck recipes and this is the first in our new series! We enjoyed making this lentil-based meatloaf in small muffin-sized portions because each bite has that delicious, crunchy crust, which is one of the highlights of any meat(less) loaf. You’ll see what I’m talking about in the video!

Frozen foods are a lifesaver when it comes to saving time in the kitchen especially when you follow a whole food plant based lifestyle. Having chopped veggies and fruits at the ready in your freezer makes it so that we can enjoy “fast food” again. Sure we like to cook from scratch sometimes and enjoy fresh produce, but nothing can beat throwing a few bags of fresh veggies into a pot (or Instant Pot!) with some cans of beans, tomatoes, and spices and calling it a meal. Without further ado.. Here’s our list of 5 (actually, 10!) frozen foods we ALWAYS keep in our freezer, including a free PDF download of our pantry and freezer essentials!

Oops, we did it again. We tried another TikTok viral video trend, that is. You remember our first viral TikTok experience when we did the highly popular tortilla hack with our own homemade red lentil flatbread tortillas. This time it was the food hack taking over the world: Baked “Feta” Pasta. Inherently not vegan, we sought to not only veganize this viral trend in our own healthy way, but to add an exciting twist to it by doing it in the pressure cooker! What we love about this recipe is it requires zero chopping, you can set it and forget it, and it is deliciously flavorful and fast.

Mmmm… nachos… Dillon and I BOTH have an affinity for Latin flavors and nachos are no exception. When we do nachos at our house, we go all out. Just in time for Cinco de Mayo, we did a full nacho spread in our video today that I think will leave most of you drooling! Our toppings included: refried beans, a delicious faux taco “meat,” pico, red salsa, green salsa, Well Your World Cheese Sauce, guacamole, and chopped veggies. Did we go all out or what!? Check out the video and blog to see how we did.

Ahhh.. pizza. A beloved Friday night splurge enjoyed throughout the world. But that takeout pizza is laden with cholesterol, fat, processed meats, and other garbage. And forget vegan pizza… Most vegan cheeses are just processed oil. So we try to make pizza at home, but all we can find in the grocery store are sauces laden with either sugar or salt or oil. Once you escape sugar, the sauce is salty. Try and find a salt-free product, and it has sugar. You can’t win! Well now you CAN win with Well Your World Pizza Sauce! We featured this sauce in our video in a new way. We love using the whole wheat lavash for quick and tasty pizza, but we wanted to try using a portobella and making mini portobella pizzas! We had never tried it before, but we figured, what could go wrong?! Watch our video to see how it came out!

Ah, kitchen gadgets. When I first went plant-based, I had an oven, a stove, and a microwave. As I didn’t really know how to cook, I found the microwave quite helpful as I could quickly cook potatoes in the event of an “emergency.” Soon though, I started adding some fancier gadget investments to my arsenal. Now that I live with Dillon, the number of gadgets we have has simply gotten out of hand (almost, but not really, since we do use them all). Here are our TOP 5 favorites, and why we love them.
April 13 2021
The Well Your World YouTube channel started as a way where Dillon could showcase his fast and simple meals, meal techniques, and the benefits of a plant-based diet. Over the years we’ve put out some recipes that have been great for entertaining, picnics, potlucks, parties, and date nights. Today we wanted to share with you our top 5 EASY recipes from our channel. These are our go-to staples, the ones we play on repeat over and over. We don’t ever get sick of these, and they come in great when we’re in a pinch and need a meal fast. We even threw in a couple of bonus recipes for you. Check out our video and blog to learn more!

We took this TikTok tortilla challenge to the next level with our homemade healthy tortilla and tried it 3 different ways. We made a Latin version with Dillon’s favorite: pico! We also made a fancy version with sautéed peppers and onions, mushrooms, sun dried tomatoes, zucchini, and hummus. We made a sweet version complete with bananas, strawberries, and homemade chia seed jam. Check out the video to see if this trend really lives up to all the hype! Also check out our recipe for a super easy and fast lentil flatbread that you’ll be using with or without the tortilla hack.

Chickpeas are easily one of the most diverse whole food options out there. I love featuring them as the main component of a recipe because they are deliciously starchy. In this recipe, I celebrate the humble chickpea by squishing them down into delightful discs of flavorsome falafel. My creamy Greek-inspired Tzatziki cuts through this rich blend of spices, making it a dreamy combination with the falafel. This Greek and Middle Eastern-style fusion is fully loaded with spices and fresh herbs, making every mouthful just as delicious as the last. It’s quick and easy to assemble and encourages sharing, making it the perfect centerpiece for hosting dinner guests!

Let’s talk about coffee and caffeine. Is it a health-promoting magical elixir? Is it harmless? Or could it maybe even be detrimental to your health? I know many people on their quest for health and wellness ditch caffeine as part of their whole-food healthy journey, and I can understand why. There are so many coffee alternatives on the market that are delicious and have that same great roasty taste, not to mention all of the delicious herbal teas that you can drink. For those of you looking to ditch coffee or cut back, we put together this video with 5 great alternatives you can try.

We loved having Tami and Tom on! We had tons of fun learning our way around our new Holland Bowl and mezzaluna. Tami shared so many tips and tricks with us to get us started on our chopped salad journey. Hers came out way prettier than ours, but I’m sure it tasted just as good. We can’t wait to have Tami and Tom back on our channel, because it’s awesome to have good friends in the plant-based community who share in our love for healthy, sos-free eating!

You guys have heard me talk about it before, and finally, here is your OFFICIAL Starch Blaster Video. I love starch blaster because it's an easy, fast way to get a healthy, plant-based, vegan meal in a hurry. I don't always have time to meal prep or batch cook or think about what I want to eat, so this meal is a lifesaver! You just choose your starches, a few spices, add water, and pop it into your Instant Pot or pressure cooker. It is that fast and easy.
