We share a love for kale and avocado – and I knew I had to share this simple salad when my friend Susan published Simply Vegetarian Cookbook (affiliate). I love that it can easily be customized for all kinds of eaters!

1. Almond Matcha Green Tea Latté

Matcha green tea lattes in black bowls with almond milk, maple syrup.

This one caught me by surprise, but at the same time, maybe I shouldn’t be — I have a Matcha Green Tea Latté every afternoon! It’s a bit of calm every single day, and I’m glad so many of you enjoy it, too!
