Filet of Sole Taco BowlI love this recipe! I found the vegan version of the recipe from a blog and decided to add filet of sole to it so it felt more like fish tacos but as a salad instead. The mango dressing is so unique and couldn’t be easier to make. The sweetness of the dressing is slightly masked by the other ingredients and it all just goes together perfectly. I also love how this isn’t a traditional taco bowl, perfect for wowing your next dinner guest.
Frozen GrapesI’m not a big dessert person. I would much prefer a salty meal but sometimes even I just need something cold and sweet. I started freezing grapes a few months ago and it’s the perfect after dinner snack. Simple and delicious!
Garden HummusThere is always homemade hummus in my fridge. This hummus recipe is just a variation of of the classic hummus with just some basil and parsley to change the consistency and flavor. You’ll impress your guests for sure! Pair with cucumbers for an extra green snack.
Greenberry SmoothieI love smoothies! This greenberry smoothie is packed with vitamins, protein, cancer prevention properties, promotes heart health, etc etc. So much goodness is just one glass will keep you going in the morning or when you need a pick-me-up sna
Greens SoupI love this soup for so many reasons but mostly because it’s super easy and really good! A wonderful juice shop in NYC made this soup for a holiday party I had this year and it was such a hit with healthy eaters and especially non healthy eaters alike. I knew this would be a recipe I had to share, especially with temps dropping and people needing warm, nourishing meals. Enjoy!
GuacamoleThere is little I love more than good guacamole. I make this whenever I’m hosting friends or as a good dish to bring to a party. It’s easy to make and such a crowd pleaser. If you pair this with the plantain chips, you’ll be all set!
Lime BroccoliA majorly upgraded version of roasted broccoli that bursts with flavor! This lime broccoli recipe takes no additional time to prep but takes roasting veggies to a new level. I make this recipe almost every week and keep it in my fridge to use as a side or toss it in my omelets in the morning. Yum!
Massaged Kale & Avocado SaladI used to be the worst salad maker ever! I would make a salad and bring it to the office and be so bored when lunch-time came around. Am I the only person who waits for an acceptable hour to eat lunch because I’m just so excited? Well I quickly stopped bringing homemade salads because it was always such a disappointment. If you can relate, then I have your quick fix and you’re going to be wishing lunch-time to come even faster! My Massaged Kale & Avocado Salad is so good but almost more importantly, so easy that you won’t believe it. Feel free to add in additional protein (salmon, grilled chicken, walnuts, pumpkin seeds etc.) to keep you full longer but don’t be fooled by the short ingredient list, this salad has it goin’ on.
Mustard SalmonThis recipe reminds me of my Mom’s home cooking. I grew up eating Salmon pretty often and this was a recurring recipe in our household. It’s probably one of the easiest recipes to make because there is no prep other than mixing 2 mustards and some dill together and basically no kitchen cleanup afterward. I make this dish when I want something home cooked but don’t have time to do much else.
Nightshade & Lentil HashMy latest obsession: nightshade veggies & lentils. It warms me up when it’s cold and the combo is perfection! I created this recipe based on 2 of my favorites and decided to combine them. The eggplant, tomato & onion combo is so delicious and the lentils are a great winter staple. This recipe can be used as a main dish or a side dish. *nightshade vegetables: eggplant, tomatoes, potatoes & peppers
Overnight OatsI love this easy and delicious recipe not only for the taste but because it’s such a good grab and go option. The prep time is pretty minimal and after work or before bed just put it all together, stick it in the fridge and grab it on your way out to work in the morning. This breakfast is filled with protein between the oats, chia seeds and almond milk (and even more if you make the almond milk from scratch!)
