This is so simple and SO tasty. It's perfect as a pre-made option for a week of breakfast or as something to offer guests who've spent the night. It's only got 5 major ingredients, 4 of which are plants! Not only that, but it's dairy free, gluten free, and vegetarian.
These muffins are a great option for St. Patrick's Day! If you want to bring something healthy and green to any St. Patrick's festivities, THIS is your recipe. It's gluten free and no sugar added (Unless you want to. I've included the option.).
Before we get into the recipe, though, I wanted to give a little background to who St. Patrick actually was. I hadn't known much about him at all until very recently. Most of my life, when I heard "St. Patrick", I thought of having to wear green so...
A homemade cookie doesn't get easier or healthier than these. I'm not going to lie, we have these at least once a week, sometimes more. I grew up ending most meals with a sweet. These have offered me a satisfying and healthy option!
You can see all the ingredients I used in the picture!
Here are the specifics and some variations on a sliding scale of healthy to healthy-ish.
Makes about 12 cookies.
2 ripe bananas
1 cup of oats (use certified gluten free for those who n...
Okay, I think what I post on here is good stuff... This was REALLY good! Haha. It was really easy to make, and the flavor was bomb! Ryan finished his before I had finished even 3 bites of my serving. No joke. He does, though, have a special ability to inhale food unlike many others I've seen.
Anyways, often times I'm not super stoked on left overs, especially if there aren't any veggies left over in the meal we had. But this as a left over was JUST as tasty, and I was really excited to ea...
I wanted to try something new, and I wanted something the would be healthy but still taste comfort-foodish. You know what I mean? Something warm, creamy, and delicious. So I looked up ideas for healthy casseroles.
When considering one of the recipes I found, I was really leery about including nutmeg in a savory dish. BUT I went with it, and the flavor of this casserole was SO good. I was even excited to eat it for leftovers the next day... and I don't usually like next day food.
I modified this recipe from an entry in Super Immunity by Dr. Joel Fuhrman. The ingredients are chosen primarily to nutritionally support, as you can guess, our immunity system. Not only that, but this recipe is both gluten free and dairy free!
Serves 2-3 people
4 large bell peppers, cut in half lengthwise with seeds removed
What do I mean by "ideal plate"? I can assure you, I'm not talking about dishes!
If we were to use a plate as a pie chart for what we should eat at a given meal, ideally you want 50% vegetables and fruits, 30% whole grains, and 20% protein. This break down would constitute the "ideal plate".
This pasta was an attempt to provide that balance in a single dish that could be made in 30 minutes (cutting/chopping prep included!)... and I think I got it. Notice the picture with the three pans! They...
This is definitely my new favorite salad. Ryan and I had a bit less than healthy day on Saturday, and on Sunday our bodies were crying for some higher quality foods. We'd never really had a salad for our meal. Usually it was a compliment to something else. Since we weren't looking to eat a ton, and we wanted to get some quality nutrition, this is where we landed, and boy was it good!
It has that sweet and savory dynamic going on. Ryan and I love foods like that!
This one is one of our all time favorites! The flavor is SO good that it beats many of the fried rice dishes I've had eating out.This recipe provides a great way to use up veggies from a previous night so that they don't go bad. I know this, becuase that's what I did. I used the veggies from the pasta primavera recipe from a couple of days ago. ;)
Healthy eating shouldn't be that expensive or challenging. Ryan and I want to show how it's possible to use up all that you buy, to make nutri...
