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 Carrots with Maple Tahini Sauce

Yes, it’s summer and the grills are going full force, and just because we’re not eating meat in no way means the grill is not useful. This recipe for grilled carrots is so yummy, you won’t want to skip the backyard barbecue.

My Favorite Cookbook

I’m notorious for never following recipes or just throwing things together in the kitchen. It generally works out, but sometimes I’m looking for someone else to give me the guide to making a meal so I don’t have to think about it. The Flavor cookbook is my go to source for guilt free and scrumptious meals. This is the one cookbook I’d never part with. There is nothing I’ve made in it that isn’t absolutely delicious. If you need recipe ideas, I highly recommend this book!

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.

Bang Bang Rotini

The most scrumptious of flavors are combined in this Bang Bang Rotini to make a healthy and flavorful meal. I love pasta mixed with succulent greens and when you add a spicy sauce to it, I’m in heaven. For those who don’t like as much heat, you can use less sauce.

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.

Collagen Builder

I currently don’t use this product, but I have used it in the past and love it. I used it in smoothies for a quick breakfast or easy snack because sometimes life is busy and it’s difficult to take the time to eat. This builder gave me the peace of mind that I was getting adequate nutrients to keep my body healthy during those busy mornings. It has no flavorings, which I really love as well!
