Amaranth Tabouli

Tabouli is a great summertime recipe. It’s easy to make ahead of time, stores well for an extended period of time, is easy to take on picnics, and is a refreshing addition to any meal. Most tabouli are made with couscous or quinoa, but the use of amaranth (an ancient grain) is a welcome change I think you’ll enjoy.

Mango Creamsicle

Nothing is better on a hot summer day than an ice cold popsicle. They’re so easy to make to, as long as you think a little ahead. Feel free to experiment with different fruit in this one. The coconut adds just the right amount of creaminess to make these seem decadent.

Grilled Watermelon

Putting watermelon on the grill isn’t the first thing I would’ve thought of but the grill was there and I figured, why not. It’s delicious! The best thing about it is the fresh flavors paired with the caramelization from the grill. It’s a new must for us at family barbecues.

Watermelon Jicama Salad

There’s something about watermelon and summer; it just goes together so well. My favorite is adding a bit of spice to watermelon, or really anything for that matter. The crunchiness of the jicama is a nice addition to the refreshingly sweet watermelon. This is great as a side side or stored in the refrigerator as a snack.

A Grounding Practice

Life can get extremely busy, hectic, and at times, overwhelming. In those times it’s important to take a short break to reset, reground, and find your center again. I developed this gentle yoga routine to accomplish the simple task of grounding, centering and focusing. I made this routine short. When life is busy it can be difficult to take even twenty minutes aside, but taking the brief break to find your focus again will make you feel more at ease as you tackle life’s challenges.

Vegan Bang Bang Sauce

Traditional Bang Bang Sauce recipes either contain animal products or refined oils, both of which we avoid. My goal was to achieve the same flavor without both of those things. I haven’t compared this with traditional Bang Bang Sauce, but I love the flavors in this none-the-less. Hopefully you do too!

Roasted Broccoli

Adding roasted broccoli to a dish is an easy way to make any meal feel more gourmet with very little effort. Roasted broccoli is great added to salads, soups, pasta dishes, or even a casserole. The little bit of charring adds a nice flavor.

Kale Full Meal Salad

Having prepped veggies in the refrigerator is an easy way to have a quick snack or meal. This was made from ingredients that I had already pre-cut in my refrigerator. If you don’t have these ingredients prepped before hand, add about ten minutes to the prep time.

Blueberry Lemon Cookies

These cookies are easy to make, healthy, and can easily be served as a healthy snack or breakfast. You can also use them as a dessert for the kids, just don’t tell them they’re packed with nutrients.

Best Paella

I have been trying and trying to perfect this paella recipe. You can be the judge if I’ve succeeded or not, but I think I did it. Paella is nothing to mess around with. In my mind you either make it spectacular or don’t make it at all. The flavors have to compliment each other just right in order to be considered a good paella.
