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 [...]

Raspberry Chocolate Lava Cake

In addition to my chocolate and coconut obsession, I also have an obsession with raspberry chocolate. It all started with Dove's Irresistibly Raspberry ice cream, a mouthful of heaven comprised of vanilla ice cream swirled with raspberry sorbet and Dove dark chocolate. Undoubtedly the best thing I've ever eaten. Sadly, it was discontinued a few [...]

Egg Frittata Muffins

One of the reasons many of us struggle with maintaining a clean diet is lack of time. Daily meal preparation can be extremely time consuming, which I think is why a lot of us end up purchasing store-bought food – because it’s faster and easier than slaving in the kitchen after a long day of [...]

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 [...]

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 diced tomatoes to my [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Strawberry Goat Cheese Cheesecake

Yes, there is a such thing as healthy cheesecake. And as far as healthy cheesecakes go, this is as good as it gets. Why strawberry goat cheese cheesecake is the best: A) Goat cheese is lower in calories, fat, and dairy than cow’s milk. B) Cheesecake contains lots of eggs. Eggs = protein = win. [...]

Berry Breakfast Smoothie Bowl

For this breakfast smoothie bowl, I recommend using plain non-fat Greek yogurt, as it has only 120 calories per cup, 6 grams of sugar, and 22 grams of protein! I like Trader Joe’s brand, but Sage and Chobani are also good brands. The yogurt itself tends to be too bitter for me, so I like to blend it [...]

Vegan Plantain Tacos with Mango Lime Sauce

A few years ago, I went to my very first vegan restaurant in L.A. with a friend of mine who was a strict vegan. While looking over the menu, I had no idea what half of the menu items were Seitan? Tempeh? It was like a foreign language. So I settled on an item that [...]
