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.…

Cilantro Basil Chimichurri Sauce

This sauce is quick, easy, has a short ingredient list, and is the perfect sauce for all of your summer dishes. I suggest pairing it with these Turmeric Chicken Kebabs! Cilantro Basil Chimichurri Sauce Ingredients: 1/4 cup fresh cilantro (packed) 4 leaves fresh basil 1/2 cup olive oil 1 tsp sea salt 2 tbsp lemon juice 1 tsp sea salt 1/2 tsp minced garlic 2 tbsp water Directions: Place all ingredients into a food processor…

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…

Cilantro-Lime Broccoli Slaw

Taco night was a hit! There is something so great about getting together with people and communally stuffing your face with delicious eats. Tacos are probably our (Corey and I) favorite food of all time, so we were pretty excited about having people over and being able to mass produce tacos. We like to use corn tortillas for our tacos (shout out to GF foodies!). Quick tip: warm the tortillas on a skillet, and then…
