Fajita Bowl 3

Fajita Bowl with Citrus Marinated Vegetables

I am always looking for quick dinners that work well during a busy week and that make perfect leftovers. Leftovers make the best lunches.  Am I right?  Eating healthy is a priority for me and I refuse to let things like a hectic schedule stand in my way.  You will not find take out menus in my […]

Maca Blondies

Raw Chocolate Chip Maca Blondies

You might be saying to yourself right now…what the heck is maca?  I had never heard of it myself until a couple of years ago.  Maca is one of those super foods that you may have been hearing more and more about lately.  Now I do believe that foods as simple as kale and blueberries […]

Sugar Cookies 2

3 Ingredient Sugar Cookies

I have a hard time finding (and creating) really good cookie recipes.  I have tried some different versions in the past but they tend to come out too crunchy or too cakey (is that a word?).  Just because it is in the shape of a cookie does not mean that it is a cookie.  I […]

Zucchini Noodles 8

Guilt Free Pasta: Zucchini Noodles with Roasted Tomatoes and Peas

Zucchini noodles (or Zoodles as people are calling them) are the latest craze.  I am not one to jump on health fads without reason but making noodles out of vegetables…now I can get down with that!  With more and more people trying to eat lower carbs, avoiding grains, cutting out gluten, and trying to add […]

Beet Salad

Roasted Beet Salad Over Shredded Brussels Sprouts

  This salad…oh let me tell you all about this salad and trust me you are going to want to try this one!  Every single component of this wonderfully healthy salad is packed full of nutrients.  If you, like a lot of people, are always striving to eat a little healthier then you probably find […]

Lemon Vinaigrette 3

Clean Lemon Vinaigrette Recipe

Salads are a huge staple of my diet.  A big bowl loaded with nutritious leafy greens is as mouthwatering to me as a juice steak is to some.  Salads can be switched up in thousands of different ways.  People always ask me how I can eat salad everyday and I always say the same thing…I don’t eat […]

Sesame Glazed Green Beans 5

Sesame Glazed Green Beans

I am a lover of green beans.  The fresh kind I mean.  I remember trying to choke down canned green beans as a kid because I just didn’t like the flavor or how mushy they were.  But fresh green beans…now those I could eat raw or cooked and be a happy girl.  My husband on the […]

Lemon Bars

Lemon Bars (Raw, Vegan, Paleo)

  Two flavors that I absolutely love are chocolate/peanut butter/banana and LEMON!  I love anything lemon.  I just can’t get enough.  I could eat lemon curd with a spoon.  Luckily citrus is in season right now and I was able to visit a local farm recently and pick my own right off the trees.  As a result […]

Date Sriracha Ketchup 2

Date Sriracha Ketchup

I just recently became part of a group called Recipe Redux.  It is a group of food bloggers that have a passion for healthier food.  Every month we get an new assignment.  We then have the freedom to get creative and create a recipe that is inspired by that special assignment.  Right up my alley.  Today is […]

Orange Vanilla Spinach Smoothie 7

Orange Vanilla Spinach Smoothie

Green smoothies are nothing new and have been sweeping the nation for quite some time now.  They have been a big part of my life for awhile now and definitely are not going anywhere.  With so many versions out there everyone should be able to find a combination that they enjoy.  For me it is not […]


Not Fried Hush Puppies with Jalapeno Aioli

  I love grinding whole ingredients into flours and using them in things like baked goods and for breadcrumb replacements.  The first time that I ground millet into a flour it immediately made me think of hush puppies.  The texture and smell is very much like corn meal.  Ever since that time I wanted to […]

Cauliflower Broccoli Salad (3 of 1)

The Cruciferous Veggie: Cauliflower Broccoli Salad

 I will be the first to admit that I don’t eat enough variety of cruciferous vegetables.  I definitely have no problem eating lots of kale or Brussels sprouts but as far as the other vegetables in this family go, not so much.  I am a lover of most vegetables so I find this hard to […]

Fallafel Waffles 3

Savory Falafel Waffles with Artichoke Tzatziki

I just love mediterranean flavors.  I find them to be so crisp, clean, and light so I don’t feel weighed down.   I was eating out with a friend one night and I ordered a mediterranean panini that was so good.  It had white bean hummus, artichokes, kalamata olives, and cucumbers on it and I […]
