5 Hungry Lady Salads for Labor Day

Summer wouldn’t be complete without enjoying one last spread of delicious food outdoors surrounded by loved ones. And who would I be if I wasn’t advocating for at least one Hungry Lady Salad?! If you’ve been following along for a while now, you would know…

Roasted Sweet Potato + Kale Salad with Spicy Cashew Herb Dressing (Vegetarian, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free)

I did it. I made my new favorite Hungry Lady Salad. I have been wanting to do a sweet potato salad for a few weeks now, but I didn’t want it to have a fall seasonal feel which so many sweet potato salad preparations do.…

Three Ingredient Cauliflower Soup                           (Vegan, Gluten-Free)

Three Ingredient Cauliflower Soup (Vegan, Gluten-Free)

Sometimes a recipe comes my way that puzzles me. At first glance, this three ingredient soup sounds a bit drab: no spices, no cream, no deep caramelization to develop flavor. It doesn’t sound like the home-run recipe it is. The first thing that made me…

Perfect Pot Roast with Lots of Vegetables            (Gluten-Free)

Perfect Pot Roast with Lots of Vegetables (Gluten-Free)

March. It’s a long month, am I right? It’s not quite winter, and it’s not quite spring. It’s the time of the winter when I start to lose my stamina for complicated, multi-step cooking, and want to pull out my tried and true foolproof recipes…

The Best Mayo-Free Tuna Salad. (Paleo, Dairy Free, Gluten Free)

I’ve been making The Best Mayo-Free Tuna Salad for years, and I doubt I’ll ever tire of it. I posted this recipe a few months ago on Tik Tok and it went viral overnight.  I still get messages to this day from people who now…

If there is one marinade you need for summer, it’s this one. When I am having people over for a barbecue, this is one of the recipes I turn to.  It’s quick to throw together, packed with tart, salty, sweet, COMPLEX flavor and does all…

Spicy Sambal Shrimp Lettuce Cups (Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Paleo)

It’s finally summer, which means less meals roasting in the oven and more of these light, refreshing suppers around here. This recipe is a perfect weeknight dinner, as the shrimp get a quick 30 minute marinade and then cook on the stovetop for under 5…

Salted Tahini Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars (Paleo)

Salted Tahini Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars (Paleo)

I have been on a huge tahini kick lately. Hummus. Salad Dressing. Grain Bowls. Cookies & Bars. Tahini is a sesame seed paste that is most notably in hummus, but is delicious in so many things from savory foods to sweet ones. I thought to…

Creamy Chicken Tortilla Soup (Gluten Free, Whole 30, Dairy Free)

Creamy Chicken Tortilla Soup (Gluten Free, Whole 30, Dairy Free)

This week we’ve got another comforting, healthy dinner coming your way.  It’s safe to say that will be a theme this winter, as it’s very much how we eat at home on a regular basis.  I’ve heard from many of you that’s how you like…

Fall Roasted Vegetable Salad

Thanksgiving may look a little different this year, but that doesn’t mean we can’t still get excited about (arguably) the most important part… the food!   I’ve teamed up with four other talented bloggers to put together a selection of five easy, tried and true Thanksgiving…

Easy Teriyaki-Glazed Salmon Bowls

Easy Teriyaki-Glazed Salmon Bowls

This is less of a recipe than it is an idea. Take a protein, give it a quick marinade bath, serve it with a bowl of crunchy, spicy, tangy accompaniments. You may have caught on by now that we are very into “bowl food” around…

Tex-Mex Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

Tex-Mex Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

One of the things I love to do is recreate modern, nutritious versions of childhood favorites. I’ve got a healthy version of this classic Italian pasta coming your way very soon, and I’m so excited to share it with you. In the meantime, let’s talk…

These paleo salted blondies are thick, chewy, and absolutely delicious. They are studded with dark chocolate chips and flaky salt for the perfect indulgent treat. This dessert is gluten-free and refined sugar-free, so they’re healthy too! Fun fact: I am not a fancy dessert kind…

Citrus Pork Tenderloin with Chimichurri Sauce

Citrus Pork Tenderloin with Chimichurri Sauce

It’s June, and it’s almost Father’s Day, so that means we are going to grill. To be fair, that’s a stereotype and an overgeneralization, but I find it to be fairly accurate in terms of predicting what will go over well this weekend at my…

Chewy Brownie Crinkle Cookies

Chewy Brownie Crinkle Cookies

Calling all chocolate lovers: This one is for you. These cookies are delightful with a cup of tea at night, or as an afternoon treat, and I’ve been known to sandwich two of them around some coconut ice cream and let me tell you… it…

Slow Cooker Banh Mi Bowls

Slow Cooker Banh Mi Bowls

If you’re anything like me, I love making a big batch of flavorful, nutrient dense protein to have in the fridge for a few days. I tend to eat mostly protein, vegetables, and complex carbohydrates like potatoes or legumes for the majority of my dinners…
