B) I use quinoa instead of bulgur. (Way healthier! Quinoa has so many great nutritional values: low glycemic, gluten-free, a complete protein, and packed with fiber.) C) Tabbouleh is [...]

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 [...]

Spinach and Goat Cheese Phyllo Triangles

Spinach and goat cheese phyllo triangles are one of my favorite appetizers! Typically, feta cheese is used in Spanakopita recipes, but personally, I think it tastes better with goat cheese. And goat cheese is healthier because it’s lower in calories, fat, and dairy than cow’s milk, so it’s easier for your body to digest. I used [...]
