Two days before Christmas and still stumped on what to get someone?

Take the easy but thoughtful way out and get someone an e-gift!

Life happens and now you’re left scrambling to make it to the stores in time to pick up a gift for Christmas. And who wants to go to the stores this time of year? They’re packed and crazy!

Don’t get elbowed in the face over the last cashmere scarf and buy someone an e-gift instead! What’s an e-gift? It’s a printable gift that comes with a gift card number that the recipient can redeem!

These are my favorite picks for e-gifts:

1. Texture.com: Magazine Subscription: for your trendy friend that loves to read magazines and tabloids.

2. Spotify subscription: for your friend that loves music and is still living in the Dark Ages with Pandora.

3. Kindle book: for your friend who loves to read books on a Kindle. The Inspiralized cookbook has a Kindle version. Just sayin’.

4. Netflix membership: THE GREATEST GIVER, EVER.

5. An airline gift card, like on Southwest: for your friend who loves to travel or for your long-distance friend who hasn’t visited you in a while, this is a great incentive!

6. Studio classes: for your fitness-obsessed friend. Most studios have gift cards but if they don’t, just buy credits and print out the information for your friend. I love Peloton, if you live in the NYC area.

7. Brit & Co classes: for your friend that loves to learn and wants to grow their passions. Brit & Co has so many amazing courses!

8. Birchbox: for your friend that loves beauty and surprises.

9. Club W: for your friend who’s into wine. aka every friend you have.

10. Plated subscription: for your friend who’s lacking inspiration in the kitchen or loves to cook and is always looking for new ideas, Plated makes it easy.

11. Starbucks: pretty much everyone’s last resort – if nothing else, fuel your friend’s caffeine addiction.


Happy holidays!

I’ve got these BUFFALO TOFU WRAPS on the menu for next week - there’s a secret ingredient to make the tofu crisp up in the air fryer (you’ll see in the video!) 🥑🥬🥕⁣

and since we all appreciate a good lu review, he thought these were buffalo chicken wraps when I first served them to him! 😜 ⁣

grab the recipe on the blog! 🙌🏼⁣

ramen is the perfect meal for this season of life. it’s cozy, comforting, filling, and satisfying. 🙏🏼 needless to say, I’ve been eating tons of ramen bowls lately, and I’m extra excited to share this one with you, a take on Japanese miso ramen: Miso Noodles with Smoky Tempeh (using @lightlifefoods Original Tempeh) and Kale. 🥬 🍜 #LightlifePartner⁣

this is kind of like two recipes in one, because this smoky tempeh is good on everything – in sandwiches, on salads, in grain bowls - it’s my go-to flavor when I’m making tempeh (especially for those who aren’t as far along on the tempeh train as I am.) the other recipe is the simplest miso ramen with kale, which you’ll be making over and over again. 👏🏼 also, you can simply sub in @lightlifefoods’ Smoky Tempeh product here, to save time!⁣

you can find @lightlifefoods Original Tempeh at @acmemarkets or @wholefoodsmarket, but use their Store Locator on their site to find out where it’s sold near you. 🛒⁣

recipe below 👇🏼👇🏼⁣

Miso Ramen with Smoky Tempeh and Kale⁣
Serves: 4⁣

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil⁣
8-ounce package @lightlifefoods Original Tempeh, cubed⁣
¼ cup soy sauce, low sodium⁣
2 tablespoons maple syrup⁣
¼ teaspoon smoked paprika⁣
1 teaspoon liquid smoke⁣
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder⁣
2 garlic cloves, minced⁣
1-inch knob ginger, minced⁣
4 cups vegetable broth⁣
1 tablespoon miso paste⁣
1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce⁣
4 cups finely chopped kale⁣
12 ounces ramen noodles⁣

Heat half the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the tempeh slices and cook for 5 minutes until browned, stirring frequently.⁣

While tempeh cooks, stir together ¼ cup of water, soy sauce, maple syrup, smoked paprika, liquid smoke, and garlic powder. Pour that over the cooked tempeh and stir to coat. Let cook another 5 minutes or until moisture is evaporated and tempeh is browned. Set aside on a parchment lined plate.⁣

Heat the remaining oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Once oil is shimmering, add the garlic and ginger and cook for 1 minute or until fragrant. Add the broth and 2 cups of water and bring to a boil over high heat.
