roasted rosemary leaf potatoes

I usually try to write something short, witty, and tantalizing to kick off my posts, but right now I’d like to pause my usual banter and acknowledge that this year has been hard, and the holidays coming up will be unlike any year before. Many states are locking down again, for good reasons, and our […]

simple avocado citrus salad

By the end (or nearing end) of winter I’ve usually established a craving for fresh summer fruit, but berries and nectarines will evade me a few months more. I recently rekindled my love for oranges after being sick with influenza- I used to think of oranges as a bit mundane, their purpose being for juicing […]

vegan green smoothie

Happy New Year! Whether you are eating differently because of a New Year’s resolution or just want to add extra greens into your diet, I’m hoping this recipe will fit nicely into your smoothie repertoire. I used to think that vegetable based smoothies were boring and reminiscent of grass, but I couldn’t have been more […]

golden milk

We are entering a season of warm, spice-filled drinks, and in my opinion golden milk should be in your regular rotation- if not only because it’s delicious, but for the many health benefits turmeric provides. Plus, golden milk has all the necessary components of a classic fall beverage- warm, spiced, with a hint of sweet, and […]

serrano pico de gallo

Whole30 pulled pork lettuce wraps with sesame ginger sauce

These pork wraps are majestically happy and full of flavor just as they are. Plus, you can eat them guilt-free, knowing that you basically had […]

Whole30 Pad Thai

Bravo to those of you in the throes of Whole30. It’s not easy! And if you aren’t doing Whole30, then chances are you know someone who is. The other day I asked Patrick what he wanted for dinner and he requested this Whole30 Pad Thai. We aren’t even doing Whole30 right now (not to rub […]

milk & toast: hemp milk and hazelnut superfood spread

Stop rolling your eyes. No, I haven’t become a dreadlocked hippie who only eats foods that are naturally green. I finally took Sarah Britton’s advice to make my own hemp milk and now I never want to go back. When I wake up in the morning, one of my first thoughts is a primal “coffee coffee […]

superfood “milkshake”

I made this for the first time when I was doing Whole30 with Patrick and it’s been a recipe that stuck around ever since. That confession will probably get me excommunicated from the serious Whole30 community, but just remember that is how much I love you, my blog followers and friends. Even though this milkshake […]
