The Buddha Bowl is the ANSWER for so many things: 1. gluten free, paleo, and keto styles of eating 2. diverse, easy ways to cook “ethnic” food (not sure if that’s the PC way to say it) 2. eating with your eyes (I love pretty food) 3. getting your veggies ON 4. only messing up one pan and one bowl!!! And the one I’m going … Continue reading Vive la Buddha Bowl!
This is the best cereal I’ve ever fueled my body with. It’s only nuts and seeds, y’all. It’s basically my old granola recipe, but without oats. You can add oats if you want! But if you’re staying away from grains, this is the cereal for you. There’s some dried fruit in there. Take that out if you’re watching your sugar… NUTTY CEREAL Preheat your oven … Continue reading Nutty Cereal.
Happy Spring! Let’s celebrate the warm sun with a teacup full of sunshine and health! Huzzah! This gazpacho is special ~ it doesn’t use bread to thicken ~ it uses one boiled egg (or more if you want to get your protein on!) It also does not contain cucumber. I wanted to keep the flavor bright, but not too intense. Plus, the Hub hates cucumber … Continue reading Gazpacho for the WIN.
Good morning, lovely people! I think you all know by now that my favorite subject is HEALTHY BREAKFAST FOODS. Although, lately I’ve been partaking a little too much in the coffee shop pastry genre. I can’t say I’m sad about it. For me, if I have a decadent everything bagel with cream cheese or a croissant on Monday morning, I crave it every morning for … Continue reading avocados and fruit for breakfast.
Does this plate of food look gross to you? I guess it wasn’t meant to be the prettiest Sunday lunch we’ve ever had. But I was determined to come home from church and get food on the table. Not go out and eat something expensive and decadent. The verdict: this was SO delicious. Comfort food at its finest. Sunday food from circa 1980. Tuna Cakes … Continue reading 3-ingredient Tuna Cakes & “NO-tato” Potato Salad.
You don’t need this recipe. It’s so easy. I just wanted to put a little bug in your ear, just in case you have forgotten how easy a pork chop can be. Honestly, I didn’t think I liked pork chops until the Hub came home one night a few months ago, with some bone-in pork chops from Trader Joe’s. Two in a package. Makes it … Continue reading ginger-soy pork chops.
Oh, this. This warming, comforting cauliflower rice pilaf is filling my house with the most fantastic and lovely smells. Its mouth-watering co-star is a Ginger-Soy pork chop, which will get its very own post shortly. I’M SO HUNGRY! I cannot wait for dinner. Here’s how it’s done… CAULIFLOWER RICE PILAF Melt two tablespoons butter or ghee in a Dutch oven. Butter has a major … Continue reading exotic cauliflower rice pilaf.
I confess. I’m a self-proclaimed addict of the trendy food-lovers’ salad of today ~ the Buddha Bowl. I could eat one every single day. And it would be really smart for me to do so. It’s full of all the things that really make me feel amazing: fresh, vibrantly-colored vegetables, mostly raw, nuts, seeds, fruits, maybe a little protein or grain added, and a homemade … Continue reading Buddha Bowl Addict.
This is truly a soup for company, y’all. Although, I didn’t know I was going to have company yesterday when I made it. I merely made it because I wanted to get rid of this nasty Seasonal Affective Disorder that’s been lingering for days. But sometimes if you build it, it will come. If you make delicious food, people will come to your house for … Continue reading Curried Carrot Bisque.
