    pumpkin spice overnight oats

    No Comments

    Quick, no fuss, nutrition packed breakfasts are essential to starting your day off right. Before I had littles and worked outside of my home this was true but even more so now that I am a mother of two and work as a health coach on the weekends. Someone always needs me and sometimes even a smoothie isn’t something I have time for. That’s why I always, and I mean always, have pre-made breakfast bars, muffins, or something like these overnight oats or chia pudding in the fridge and ready to grab and go.

    pasta with butternut squash & sage

    No Comments

    Today I’m sharing a simple weeknight family friendly dinner… pasta! Not white pasta of course, not even whole wheat pasta (bleh), instead pasta made with beans and lentils. If you know me, you know I talk bean and lentil pasta up all the time. It is actually a pretty close second to your regular white semolina pasta, except loaded with protein and cancer fighting nutrients instead of giving you a blood sugar high followed by a crash and taxing your pancreas. If you haven’t tried it yet, do it now!

    Spaghetti + squash + no spiralizer needed! Yes, you read correctly! If you’ve never experienced the A M A Z I N G N E S S of spaghetti squash, you need to try it STAT. All you have to do is roast it for an hour, scrape it with a fork, and you have sweet buttery spaghetti! It is packed with antioxidants in that bright yellow color. 1 cup of squash will provide you with 59% of your daily vitamin A and 26% of your daily vitamin C.

    moroccan chickpea stew

    There are some recipes that I just keep coming back to every season and this is certainly one of them. It comes from one of my most used cookbooks “at home in the whole food kitchen” by vegetarian chef Amy Chaplin. She lays this cookbook out so beautifully from a stunning breakdown of pantry essentials to dozens of DIY spice mixes and nut milks and nutrition packed recipes for every season.

If you know you like the flavors of ginger and turmeric you will love this drink, but if you don’t like the spicy bite of ginger and turmeric this may not be for you.

    quinoa salad with butternut squash & kale

    No Comments

    Happy fall equinox! My parents gave me a bunch of butternut squash from their garden so I decided to use it for this week’s recipe. This is a simple 2-pot quinoa salad that is great for lunches throughout the week. I’m a huge fan of making a big batch of quinoa at the beginning of the week to add to vegetables and make lunches out of it. The original recipe calls for a vinaigrette but honestly I don’t think this salad really needs it. It’s good with or without. The fresh thyme and shallots give this dish plenty of flavor!

    spiced sweet potato smoothie

    No Comments

    If you’ve been following me on Instagram for a while this recipe might look familiar. I’ve shared it before as a pumpkin pie smoothie but today I am using sweet potato instead. Sweet potatoes are an excellent source of vitamin A. This smoothie alone will supply you with over 100% of your daily value! The bright colors of sweet potatoes come from antioxidants which are anti-inflammatory and possibly even lower the potential risk of heavy metal exposure.
