Falafel

As we are rolling into March and the days are finally getting longer and warmer, I’ve been re-evaluating and fine-tuning my daily routine. My personality is the type that has to plan, research, and think about things in depth before doing and committing to them, so needless to say it can take me some time…

Veggie Pizza

Hey there! If you occasionally like to indulge in less-than-nutritionally-perfect meals, this one is definitely for you! While it’s still a comfort food, this pizza is totally homemade and loaded with delicious veggie toppings. Prepare the homemade pizza dough crust (see recipe here). Meanwhile, prepare toppings. Caramelized Onions Ingredients: 1 large yellow onion, diced 4…

Pizza Dough

This dough can be used not only for pizza, but for other breads like dinner rolls or garlic knots. For this recipe, I’ll cover how to mix, roll, and oven bake the dough to prepare for a pizza, to which you can add all of your favorite toppings! Ingredients: (makes two medium pizzas) 1 1/4…

Moroccan Tagine

This is one of our favorite recipes because of the bold spices and memories we have from Morocco. I have yet to invest in an actual tagine (the dome-shaped dish it’s named for), this dish can easily be made in a stock pot. Although I’ve already shared a tagine recipe, this one is a little…

I am so excited to finally reap some herbs and lettuce from our backyard garden, which I used in this recipe. Ingredients: 1 cup olive oil, divided 1 yellow onion, diced…

Penne Pasta with Peas, Spinach, and Beurre Blanc

Although I tend to make really healthy food decisions, I never have been able to get away from pasta. Obviously, some pastas are better than others (homemade is my favorite when I have some extra time!), but on a busy weeknight, it’s incredibly easy to throw together and it always hits the spot! This week…

Mixed Bean Casserole with Sweet Potato Mash

I love this recipe because it was really easy to throw together and it consists of super healthy ingredients. It took me under and hour to prepare and cook, which I tend to consider do-able on a weeknight. Ingredients: 3 large sweet potatoes, peeled 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk 4 tsp salt, and black ground…

Deconstructed Burrito with Spinach, Corn, and Black Beans

It’s no secret that I could eat Mexican food for every meal for the rest of my life. Nonetheless, the idea of flour tortillas (no matter how delicious) makes me feel over-full, not to mention the amount of white flour involved. This simple recipe eliminates the tortillas and instead, calls for brown rice (a much…

Fusilli Pasta with Romaine, Chickpeas, and White Wine Broth

This quick recipe is super easy to throw together on a weeknight and has just enough kick to it to keep you wanting more! If you’re not a big fan of spicy, either reduce or eliminate the red chili flakes. If you do choose to eliminate them, you may want to compensate with black pepper….

Hummus

This is a staple food around our house. It’s the perfect snack because it’s healthy and versatile and most importantly, it’s actually filling and doesn’t leave you hungrier! This is another super easy recipe, it’s simply adding the ingredients to a food processor or blender and watching it go! I am going to work on…
