In my world an amazing Gyro is like the power meal I wish I could eat daily. Did you know that it’s actually pronounced “Year•Oh“ ?? This recipe is one of the most fun recipes I’ve ever made! This summer I’m leaning into the sauces! This will be a Saucy Girl summer 🔥🤤 Lit… lit.

Fresh Herbs and spices are the star in this recipe! Aromatic herbs such as dill & oregano. Spices like cinnamon & cumin make an amazing marinade for this jackfruit chicken filling.


JACKFRUIT Chik’n (for best flavour, marinade overnight)

• 4 tbsp olive oil

• 1 medium red onion, finely diced

• 4 cloves garlic, finely diced

• 1/8 tsp ground cloves

• ¼ tsp ground cinnamon

• ½ tsp ground cumin

• 2 tsp dry oregan

• ½ tsp chilli power

• 2 tbsp tomato paste

• 2 cans of Jackfruit (Green)

• 4 tbsp soy sauce

• 2 tbsp Maple Syrup

• ¼ tsp white pepper

• 2 tbsp chicken•less seasoning

• 2 tsp apple cider vinegar

Let’s Measure in Melanin

1. Drain the jackfruit. Squeeze excess water off and separate with your hands. Chop the firm end pieces into the mixture.

3. Heat up olive oil in a medium pan I use my Always Pan. Add diced red onion sauté until softened, translucent and lightly carmelized. Add chopped garlic and sauté until soft and fragrant.

5. Add majority of the spices: cloves, cinnamon,chicken•less seasoning ,cumin, and oregano to the sautéed onions and garlic.

6. Mix in the tomato paste.

8. Now add in the prepared jackfruit along with soy sauce, maple syrup and apple cider vinegar. Mix everything extremely well. Last add the white pepper and some salt to taste. Simmer the mixture for another 10-15 minutes and then allow it to cool down. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet in the fridge overnight to intensify the flavour. ( Do Not Skip)

9. Just before you are ready to assemble your gyros, set the oven to Broil (Hi). Cook for about 20-25 minutes, until a little caramelized and browned around the edges.

Assembling the gyros is super easy! Just add in tomato wedges, fresh cucumbers, red onion, fresh dill, lettuce, and lots of plant-Based Tzatziki sauce. I used warmed pitas 🥙

I hope you enjoy this yummy recipe! It’s definitely a must try.

I Scream You Scream We All Scream for 🗣BREAKFAST Because it’s National Eat Ice Cream for breakfast Day!

What an amazing holiday right?!? I told y’all in 2021 we are catching all the celebrations 🎉

Ice cream for breakfast is something to smile about!📸: Shaughn Cooper

I didn’t have to convince the boys to dive in Prince Bryce was ready !?! You know it’s awesome when you don’t have to convince the boys to participate 😉

And on this day in history we found out that the kid loves Pistacho ice cream 🍦 Who knew?

The Jeni’s Ice Creams on 14th street was the perfect location… it’s bright and fun and located on one of the busiest streets in DC.

As soon as I walked in I was greeted with a dope ice cream quote & smells of fresh made waffles and confectionery creamy goodness 😋

The Sparkling Berry Punch & Dark Chocolate Truffle were the flavors I tried. One of the best ice cream moments hands down! The fresh waffle cones were not plant-based, so I opted for the traditional waffle cone and the lively bunch who served us pointed out how the awesome sugar cones were also plant-based too. I’m a sucker for good service.

It’s official I ate Ice Cream for breakfast!

Today, I’m making my favorite waffles and topping them with a super yummy scoop of ice cream and a dollop of coconut cream for BREAKFAST 🧇

Ironically this dope holiday was invented in New York in the dead of the winter. Created in the 1960s (because duh it was the happening thang) the day has proven that you can eat ice cream at any time of the year, any time of the day, and on any occasion. So on the first Saturday in February, go ahead and get your treat on. Before noon. We won’t judge.
