Black Bean Burrito

Ah, black beans. I have so many good things to say about them. They're packed with protein... high in fiber... great for your digestive tract... I could go on and on. For these black bean burritos, you can use any tortilla of your choice. My favorite tortillas for these are the wheat and corn flour tortillas [...]

3-Ingredient Lentil Dip

The first time I tried this recipe, I didn't even know what lentils were. A friend of mine served it at a get-together, and I couldn't stop eating it. This was also the recipe that made me fall in love with goat cheese. Most lentil dip recipes use feta cheese, but my friend had used [...]

Mango Sticky Rice

For years, I was so excited to go out for Thai food because Thai restaurants were the only place I could order mango sticky rice for dessert. For some reason, it never occurred to me to make my own... and I never realized how easy it is! For most mango sticky rice recipes, you have to soak the [...]

Heirloom Tomato and Avocado Toast

Ever since my trip to London this summer, I've been on an heirloom tomato kick. London has an abundance of great restaurants, all which seemed to offer heirloom mozzarella salads and heirloom toasts. All I could think of upon arriving home was buying a big bag of tomatoes and whipping up my own. First on the list was this [...]

Spicy Bean Chili

I love me a good bowl of chili. And this spicy black bean chili recipe is not only tasty and easy, but it's also pretty healthy and perfect for those on a vegan or vegetarian diet! Black beans are a great addition to your diet because they're high in protein, which is especially helpful for vegans and vegetarians. [...]

Zucchini Lasagna

This veggie zucchini lasagna recipe is so good you won’t even miss the meat or the pasta! And it’s much healthier than regular lasagna because it’s pasta-free (lower carbs!), and includes fat-free ricotta cheese and part-skim mozzarella cheese. Great for vegetarians or those on a gluten-free diet. I like to add fresh tomatoes to my sauce, [...]

Greek Yogurt Potato Salad

This was my first time making Greek yogurt potato salad and I’ll be honest, I wasn’t sure how it was going to turn out. I LOVE potato salad, but I tend to steer clear of it since it’s overloaded with mayo. I didn’t think it would taste as good with Greek yogurt, but I’m happy [...]

Electric Lemonade Cocktail

I have a thing for blue drinks. Or really, any drink that looks pretty. My go-to cocktail tends to be flavored vodka and soda water, since it's the healthiest low calorie, sugar-free option. But after a while, a plain ole transparent drink tends to get a little boring. So I have to improvise. I have [...]

Quinoa & Oats Breakfast Bowl

For this breakfast bowl, you can use either rolled oats or steel-cut oats. Steel cut oats sit lower on the glycemic index, but they take longer to cook, at least 30 minutes. (Those on a gluten-free diet will want to make sure to use pure oats that don't contain wheat.) For the granola, I recommend [...]

Greek Yogurt Pasta Salad

Greek yogurt has recently become my favorite healthy mayo substitute. For those of you who've read my recipe for Greek Yogurt Potato Salad, the mixture in this recipe is very similar, and you have the option to add a dollop of Vegenaise (dairy-free mayo) since the mixture is made with 90% Greek yogurt. I recommend using gluten-free brown rice pasta for [...]
