One-Pot Chipotle Black Bean Soup

You may be starting to see that I am major fan of soups. Soup is such an easy way to incorporate different foods into one meal and bring them together with herbs and seasonings. While I love a good soup made purely from scratch and fresh ingredients, sometimes its more convenient and budget-friendly to use some short cut ingredients, such as canned beans, canned veggies, or frozen veggies. This soup is one that I consider…

Simple Veggie Sushi Rolls

Corey and I have quite a sushi habit. Near our house there is a tiny little family owned sushi restaurant that makes the best sushi in our area. For some time we have wanted to try and make sushi at home, and after seeing that our grocery store now carried Ocean’s Halo Organic Nori wraps, we decide to give it a go for New Years Day lunch. This recipe isn’t an original, I used The…

Homemade Tomato Sauce with Organic Pasture-Raised Meatballs

What beats a plate of spaghetti and meatballs on a Sunday Evening? If I had an Italian Nonna, I think I would’ve made her proud with this one. We started watching the TV show, It’s Suppertime! on Viceland, and the pilot episode had me determined to make a homemade marinara sauce from scratch. I took quite a few of the from the show and combined them with what I knew about making homemade tomato sauce.…

Ginger Pumpkin Leek Soup

Ever since I finished meal prepping on Sunday Ive been so anxious to get this recipe posted. When I meal prep I love making a crock pot of soup that can easily be jarred up into single serve portions. This week I tuned in t  o my inner autumn goddess and experimented with a pumpkin soup recipe. I drew my ingredients from the list of luteal phase goodies and decided to make a Ginger Pumpkin…

Lemon Pomegranate Mung Bean Salad

Hello hello on this fine Tuesday. Today’s new recipe comes from my need to be more creative with my lunches and also from my recent endeavor on the path of cycle syncing. Do you ever find yourself in a food rut? It becomes so easy to just eat eggs and avocado toast for breakfast everyday, or eat the same old salad or grain bowl for lunch. I recently started cycle syncing with food after reading…

Dill Arugula Salad

This salad is about as simple and fast as a salad recipe can get. With only a handful ingredients this zesty little arugula salad makes a perfect little meal starter or side dish.It can also work as a great base to a larger salad or veggie bowl. I didn’t use exact measurements while making this salad, so the world is your oyster in terms of how much of each ingredient you use. That being said,…

Farmer’s Market Plate

I’ve always adored farmer’s markets. Actually, any open air local market — farmer’s, food fairs, art/craft bazaars, etc. I especially love farmer’s markets in small rural towns, such as where I currently live, Watertown. It’s a great opportunity to shop and support local business/economy, and also a great opportunity to get some seriously fresh market goods. When you live in an area with a health food market (i.e. Whole Foods, Sprouts, Erewhon, etc.) you are…

Cacao Coconut Fudge Energy Balls

Energy balls seem to be having a major moment right now; and I’ll admit, I have joined the trend. I set out to make some of my own energy balls for two reasons — 1) to develop a new guilt-free dessert/way to consume chocolate, and 2) to create an easily portable snack for the days I have my 4 hour summer class. These chocolatey little gems are LOADED with healthy fats and plant based protein.…

Turmeric Chicken Kebabs with Cilantro Basil Chimichurri Sauce

I love when I am super productive in the morning and have a free afternoon/evening to be creative in the kitchen. Corey and I read each other’s minds when we were meal planning as we both suggested that we make chicken kebabs for dinner one night this week. I had a package of multicolored bell peppers that I didn’t end up using last week, so what better way to use them up? I think the…

Quick & Easy Egg Bowl

When it comes to breakfasts, I am 8 times out of 10 more likely to choose a savory item over something sweet. Eggs are my jam. I LOVE eggs so much. At only 70 calories per large egg, they average about 5 grams of fat and 6 grams of protein. They are also SO versatile — scramble some up for breakfast, hard boil one for a midday snack, or throw a fried egg on your lunch or…
