Butternut Squash Curry

I love curries – especially ones that are chock-full of veggies. This dish is perfect to make at the beginning of the week and enjoy for lunch because it will keep you full until dinner time. And it’s a great meal to make for any of your vegan friends or those with food allergies since […]

Ratatouille

Ratatouille is a classic end-of-summer dish because it’s a wonderful way to use up your garden veggies. It’s delicious on it’s own, but also pairs well with fish and pasta. It’s also makes great leftovers – simply cover the pan and reheat in a 350 degree oven for 15 minutes or scoop onto plates and […]

Sunflower Seed Butter Energy Bites

Back-to-school season means meal prep is back in full swing and my clients want their fridges stocked with healthy meals and snacks. Packing school lunches can be tricky since you have to be wary of those with allergies. Thankfully these energy bites are nut-free so they are safe to pack for a lunch treat or […]

Buffalo Cauliflower Rice Bowls

Veggie-based meals are some of my favorite because they are filling and full of health benefits. This buffalo cauliflower bowl is so delicious (especially if you enjoy spicy food like I do) and I love all the different flavors and textures. If you prefer to keep this vegan, simple leave off the dressing. 1. Preheat […]

Watermelon Mint Moscow Mule

Ahh summer – it’s so close! If there’s one thing I always look forward to, it’s sitting on our patio with friends with a crisp, cold drink in hand. I love mint, and it always seems to be one of the herbs that grows like crazy in our herb garden, so I’ll add it to […]

Charred Lemon Hummus with Sumac

Hummus is often found on my menus. Whether I prepare it for a snack or as an appetizer for a dinner party, it’s always a delicious, comforting dish to share. I also love that it can be made so many ways – I often garnish it with toasted nuts, pesto or pomegranate seeds. This hummus […]

Berry Avocado Smoothie Bowls

Smoothies are a great way to pack lots of nutrition into one meal. This smoothie recipe in particular is full of fiber and healthy fats (but also tastes insanely good). I love serving smoothies in a bowl because garnishing with nuts, seeds, coconut and fruit is so fun – this would be the perfect cooking […]

Sweet Potato and Chickpea Burgers

This recipe combines two of my favorite ingredients: sweet potato and chickpeas. They both work together so nicely in this burger recipe – the sweet potato provides sweetness and creaminess and the beans provide texture and protein. I enjoy mine topped with avocado and fresh citrus, but feel free to top them with any of […]

Cinnamon and Mixed Nut Granola with Yogurt and Berries

I recently had the most delicious granola on our cruise ship and I came back determined to try to make my own version. This granola has less oats and more nuts, which I love because it provides more protein and a wonderful toasty flavor. The plain yogurt provides an even more protein and the berries […]

Toasted Coconut and Walnut Energy Bites

My clients LOVE energy bites and for good reason – they are the perfect grab-and-go snack and there are so many different flavor combinations to choose from. The coconut and walnuts in these bites add a good amount of healthy fat and the dates add fiber to help keep you full. I also like having […]
