Burrito Bowl

This burrito bowl is one of my favorite lunch dishes, and it's so simple to throw together. You're welcome to use any kind of cheese for the topping. My personal favorite topping is crumbled goat cheese, but shredded light cheddar or part-skim mozzarella are both great choices, and those on a vegan diet can use [...]

Very Berry Oatmeal Cups

This is one of those recipes that took me forever to get right. You'd think muffins would be easy to whip up. But I wanted to make these muffins packed with protein, so I had to make a few adjustments. The biggest adjustment was replacing flour with rolled oats, because oats are richer in protein than wheat flour. [...]

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 [...]

3-Ingredient Lentil Dip

As a Los Angeles native, my friends and I go to the outdoor movies quite a bit, and we all bring snacks to share with the group. I've always wanted to bring a fruit plate along with a tasty fruit dip, but most [...]

German Chocolate Brownies

Ever since I discovered that you can substitute sugar with dates in virtually any dessert recipe, I can't stop thinking of new desserts I want to make. German chocolate cake was my favorite as a kid (I've always had a weakness for chocolate-coconut combos), so I concocted these guilt-free German chocolate brownies! They're made with gluten-free [...]

Pear Walnut Salad with Honey Lemon Dressing

If you haven't noticed, I have a thing for salads with nuts and fruit. Plain ole veggies just don't do it for me anymore. The saltiness of the nuts and crumbled cheese combined with the sweetness of the fruit and dressing makes my taste buds happy. For this pear walnut salad, I use a medley [...]

Frozen yogurt is one of the easiest dishes to prepare, and a great healthy option to satisfy your sweet tooth. And for this strawberry frozen yogurt recipe, you only need 3 ingredients! I use plain nonfat Greek yogurt because it's packed with protein and contains very minimal sugar, but those on a vegan diet are [...]
