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…

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…

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…

Creamy Cashew Basil Pesto

Basil. Quite possibly my favorite herb. Recently, I’ve taken preference to enjoying pesto on my pasta dishes rather than tomato sauces. Something about the pungent freshness of basil has become so much more enticing to me. In my opinion, pesto is the king of sauces. Now as you’ve read before, my fiancé has a lactose intolerance — so store bought pestos are usually out of the question due to the cheese content. There are vegan pestos, but…

Toasted Coconut Curry Sweet Potatoes

Sweet potatoes are having a total moment right now. This is a short and sweet recipe post for my currently favorite way to prepare sweet potatoes. (shout out to the close second, sweet potato toast, or sweet potaTOAST, if you will.) These diced and spiced sweet potatoes are a BANGIN’ sidekick to any meal. Yesterday I had them along side some fried eggs and avocado, last week along side a tilapia filet topped with fruit salsa. This bright…
