Salmon & Arugula Salad w/ Walnuts, Onion & Heart of Palm

I was unsure what I wanted for lunch today, so I went with an easy option…and pretty much the only thing I could make with what I had in my fridge. This salad is really easy and while the salmon cooks, you can prep your veggies and clean up, so when all’s said and done, [...]

Homemade Almond Milk

I have come to love making almond milk; it’s quick (under 15 minutes with cleaning), healthy and delicious. …And now that I have a Nespresso coffee maker, I’ve been making fancy coffee drinks with my fancy homemade almond milk—so fancy. In addition to coffee, you can use your almond milk for smoothies, oatmeal or even [...]

Vegan & Gluten Free Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

I never was a huge fan of Reese’s peanut butter cups, but I do like dark chocolate and peanut butter so I consulted my friend, Google, and found this delicious recipe from the Goodness Green blog. I changed the cocoa to cacao, but really it’s probably all the same. I made these three times and [...]

Cauliflower & Lentil Porridge

‘Tis the season to eat lentils! I mean, they are so much tastier than a cookie or egg nog, right? Exactly. With the onions and carrots in this dish, you will be eating sweet vegetables, which actually helps with sweet cravings and regulating blood sugar – I like to call this a win. Embrace our [...]

Baked Asian Chicken Salad w/ Heart of Palm

I used to hate cooking chicken. I mean, I think we can all agree that a piece of uncooked chicken is not that attractive, or any raw meat or fish, for that matter. But, alas, we need our protein, and if cook and eat animal protein, we should get accustomed to handling the meat, right? [...]

Garlic and Olive Oil Mahi Mahi over Sautéed Kale

I have learned to love making mahi mahi. This fish is light in color and rich in nutrients and can be be pretty much topped with anything, making it similar to chicken (okay, maybe that’s like saying you can cook a snake with some lemon and it tastes like chicken, or camel, but you get [...]

Arugula Salad with Halibut, Pinto Beans & Veggies

I love salads. Especially when I just spent 14 days in Morocco eating bread with numerous meals (lots of healthy stuff happened, don’t get me wrong, but bread is a staple over there). And yes, I ate the bread and yes, I liked it. And yes, I felt majorly bloated after the meal. Anyway, here [...]

Greek(ish) Baked Mahi Mahi

Whenever I make mahi mahi I find it incredibly hard to find a recipe that I like and I’m not sure why this happens. With this recipe, I have solved my problem. This is my version of a Greek-style mahi mahi…if you add citrus fruit, olive oil and salt, you can make anything amazing. Cooking [...]

Happy New Year (yes, I know it’s February)

Happy 2013, everyone! I realize this post is a little past due, however, I needed some time to get my thoughts together…and a Puerto Rican vacation. For me, this year is going to signify focus – it’s a toughy, but I’ve got this. (For those of you who know me, my mind is all over [...]
