Hemp & Pumpkin Seed Veggie Burgers | #grainfree #vegan

Say the word “veggie burgers” and most of us turn up our noses and think of one of two things: gooey bean patties that crumble apart when you cautiously attempt to flip them, or chalky soy-based burgers in the frozen foods aisle. When I originally shared my recipe for Super Healthy Veggie Burgers, I listed […]

Breakfasts without Protein Powder (Daily Bites)

Turns out that last week’s post on protein powder generated more buzz than I expected! That’s a wonderful thing. I love seeing you all take this topic seriously and really think through some tough questions when it comes to eating clean and sourcing your ingredients. I wanted to share with you two of the common […]

Spicy Detox Salad (Daily Bites)

Okay. I seriously try not to talk too much about the weather on my blog (especially when it comes to complaining about winter), but I’m breaking the rules today. In my several decades of life on this planet, I’ve never experienced a cold snap quite like the one we’re having right now. By the time […]

Spaghetti Squash with Chicken, Apples & Kale

I baked my second spaghetti squash of the season last week, which prompted me to browse through the archives here and see if I’d ever posted a recipe using it. (After posting hundreds of recipes over the years, you kind of forget.) To my surprise, spaghetti squash has never made it onto the blog! Since […]

The Seasonal Comfort Food Cookbook

I’ve read my share of healthy comfort food cookbooks and blogs. And to be honest, most of the time “comfort food” just equals low-fat cheese in casseroles and applesauce instead of oil in muffins. The end result sorely lacks in flavor, nutrition, and the all-important comfort factor! Can’t comfort food be made healthier but still […]

Even if summer didn’t bring with it the sandals and sunshine, the in-season fruit and farmers’ markets, the tufts of green grass and the scent of soil, the carefree vacationers and extra helpings of ice cream, the iced tea and spiralized zucchini, the orange-hued sunrises and fluffy thunderclouds—even if it didn’t bring all of these […]

Chicken Caesar Meatballs

When I got to thinking about all of the things that go into Chicken Caesar Salad, I quickly realized that other than the chicken and lettuce, there’s not much else I can eat off of the salad. Croutons? Off limits. Cheese? Nope. Creamy dairy-based dressing? Strike three. So I decided to throw the salad idea […]

A few weeks ago on my Facebook page, I mentioned that I threw together some amazing veggie burgers for dinner one night on a whim. I told folks that I’d be happy to make them again if they’d like the recipe. And the answer was a resounding YES! So to the kitchen I went to […]
