5-Minute Kale Pesto

One of my goals this year is to certainly reduce food waste at home. I do a pretty good job at finishing produce before it goes bad, but occasionally there is a small amount leftover. This recipe was inspired by the 2 leaves of kale and small bag of cilantro leftover from last weeks greens. I have tried making kale pesto one other time, but I didn’t have quite enough olive oil left in my…

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…

Peppermint Mocha Energy Balls

Nothing screams “holiday season” to me as much as peppermint and chocolate flavored things. Peppermint hot chocolate is my jam in December, and I do treat myself to a peppermint mocha from Starbucks at least once during the season. Today I set out to create an energy ball with the chocolate-y and mint-y goodness of a peppermint mocha. I whipped these up in about 10 minutes and boy, they are DELICIOUS. The mixture tastes like…

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…

Honey Mocha Latte

Hello fellow coffee fiends — Im back with another latte recipe! This recipe is loaded with super food goodies like raw cacao, maca, cinnamon and raw honey. The collagen peptides are completely optional, but they do contribute to the frothiness and the protein content of the coffee. Raw cacao is chocolatey and full of antioxidants, fiber, and magnesium — all things that do wonders for the body. This took just a few minutes to whip…

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…

Homemade Whole-Wheat Pizza Dough

First things first; though this is not a 100% whole wheat pizza crust, in all of the flour used, 2 cups were whole wheat flour, and only 1/2 cup was white flour. Hear me out; Ive made pizza dough with purely whole wheat flour before, and while its okay/good, it comes out just the slightest bit too dense for my liking. This time as I tested my dough recipe, I decided to use a small…

Cinnamon Banana Butternut Smoothie

It’s certainly been a bit too long since my last post. My new job has begun and needless to say, hobbies quickly took a backseat spot in my life last week. Work will be much smoother and consistent in a few weeks once the school year begins but for now I am working at the mercy of the scattered schedules of fall sport preseason practices. This morning I left for work at about 6:15 and…

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,…
