Elevate Your Snack Game With a Blood Orange and Avocado Salad

Just because you’re short on time, doesn’t mean you should resort to sad midday snacks. Eating something that’s equal parts delicious, satiating and refueling is important. Getting out of your snack rut doesn’t require tons of ingredients. Rather a little imagination and creativity. One of my favorite mid morning or pre-workout snacks is this blood orange and avocado salad. Juicy, satisfying, filling and nutrient dense, requiring only a handful of staples and less than 5…

Kombucha Tutorial Part Two: Bottling, Flavoring + Second Fermentation

Your kombucha has fermented for roughly 2 weeks and it’s the perfect amount of sweet and tart. You observe a nice healthy culture growing on top. So now what? It’s time to bottle up your kombucha and add flavoring agents for its second fermentation! But What Is The Second Fermentation? Technically, there is nothing wrong with drinking your kombucha immediately after the first phase ferment, but there won’t be any carbonation since it was brewed…

Lemon and Herb Whole Roasted Chicken – A Simple How To

Have you ever felt intimidated by the idea of a whole roasted chicken? Me too. But here I am to ease your hesitations! Something about preparing the chicken and making sure it cooked all the way through used to make me uneasy.

Korean Beef Tacos with Red Cabbage Slaw and Kimchi

It’s Taco Tuesday! And it’s been a while since I’ve shared a dinner recipe with you all, but I’m back with a good one. Corey was craving tacos this weekend and trust me, I love tacos, but sometimes my basic taco recipe rotation grows tired. It’s always shredded green chicken, blackened fish or grilled steak. Don’t get me wrong, those are all AMAZING choices, but sometimes I find myself in a recipe rut and can…

How to Prep Kale for Salads and Recipes

Kale: not going to solve all of your problems or end war, but delicious and nutritious nonetheless. Kale is easily one of my favorite greens to consume and work with. Early on, however, I wasn’t entirely sure how to prep it for my salads or grain bowls. I’d underdress and under prepare, leaving the kale too dry, scratchy and difficult to digest. Over time, I discovered better ways to prep it for my salads and…

Strawberry, Walnut and Goat Cheese Spinach Salad

The farmers’ market was busting at the seams with awesome finds today. I love browsing the little white tents for produce, flowers and other craft goods. Today I snagged a gorgeous bouquet of peonies that are now bringing so much joy to my kitchen counter. Strawberries and micro greens were among the other things I purchased, both of which made it into today’s recipe: a Strawberry, Walnut and Goat Cheese Spinach Salad. Just 10 minutes…

Golden Pineapple + Herb Smoothie

I went through a phase where I literally drank a smoothie every single day, and thus it left me feeling like I’d never want a smoothie again. Slowly, however, my smoothie taste buds are returning; and at the right time I’d say because as it gets warmer smoothies are often my breakfast of choice — with a couple of hardboiled eggs — or my favorite post workout snack. A long standing struggle with smoothie making…

Food Spotlight: Eggs

Eggs are easily my favorite breakfast food. On a very rare occasion I will temporarily lose my taste for them for a week or so, but 9/10 I’m picking eggs for breakfast over something sweet. They leave me feeling full and satisfied all morning, and energized for my morning walk/workout and tasks. They are also incredibly versatile, going well with so many different types of sides or toppings. Eggs got a bad rap for a…
