    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!

    guilt-free brownies

    No Comments

    Yes, these guilt-free brownies actually taste amazing and are good for you! When I make these for other people I always ask them what they think they’re made out of and no one ever guesses the secret ingredient… BEANS! Yes, beans… packed with protein, fiber, and cancer fighting, blood sugar lowering, and stroke reducing properties! The high fiber content in beans prevents blood sugar levels from rising rapidly after a meal as well as lowering cholesterol levels. In other words, you can feel really good about eating one of these brownies! I would love to hear what you think of them!

    lactation cookies (breakfast bars)

    No Comments

    I have two exciting things to share today, one, our second baby decided to join us last weekend at home under the care of my amazing midwives, the Midwives of New Jersey, and two, I am finally sharing what is probably the most used recipe in our house! These aren’t just “lactation cookies” but also a great breakfast for everyone. They are basically a protein-packed oatmeal cookie (and who doesn’t want a cookie for breakfast?)! My husband and toddler love these too.

    not sad desk (or sahm) lunch

    No Comments

    One of the things I love most about traveling is being inspired by the food! On my recent trip to Hawaii one of my friends told me about a great take-away place in Kona called Laulima Food Patch. If you are visiting the Big Island you must go there – they have awesome whole food bowls for breakfast and lunch. We stopped there as much as possible on our trip. I ordered their “wholey protein” bowl twice because the green goddess dressing was amazing! They used a buttermilk base so I decided to recreate a vegan version at home. This dressing will make any salad taste better!
