Zucchini Lasagna

This is a great alternative to traditional lasagna if you are trying to limit refined grains, sugar, are on a gluten-free diet, or are looking to make a healthier substitute. Zucchini is more of a complex carb than your typical white lasagna noodle meaning your body requires more energy to break it down and itContinue reading “Zucchini Lasagna”

Healthy-ish Fried Rice

Any time I have a craving for Chinese food I make this easy, healthier version of fried rice. This is also a fun way to “dress up” rice if you eat it often and you’re sick of the same old thing. It’s easy to make and easy to clean up. In a pot, you’ll need:Continue reading “Healthy-ish Fried Rice”

Veggie Medley

One of my favorite pairings with meat or eggs is a good veggie medley. Veggie medleys can be made on the cheap, are a great source of vitamins and minerals and can be made either stovetop in a giant pan like this one or on a sheet pan in the oven. Make sure you’re cookingContinue reading “Veggie Medley”

Baked Garlic Rosemary Beets and Sweet Potatoes

I love this dish. I started making it when I was on a cleanse since it was a side dish of foods that were cleanse approved and I haven’t stopped making it since.

Step 1Continue reading “Pan-Seared Bacon Brussel Sprouts”

The pancakes themselves are gluten free, dairy free, andContinue reading “Easy 4 Ingredient Pancakes”

Greek quinoa salad

An oldy but goody lunch time favorite. I used to nosh on this when I was in chiropractic school but haven’t made it since…. And I’m sensing it needs a come back!! It’s so good and has such a refreshing flavor. The bursts of cucumber and tomato as you eat it definitely put it overContinue reading “Greek quinoa salad”

Baked oatmeal cups

OK So these are one of my favorite things to make and I get absolutely addicted to them once I make them. I eat a minimum of two a day (usually for breakfast, but sometimes I’ll eat one as a snack and one before dinner and then, well, you get the picture….) These definitely don’tContinue reading “Baked oatmeal cups”
