    no waste vegetable stock

    No Comments

    Ever feel like you are wasting vegetable scraps? Well stop! Save them to use in a nourishing vegetable stock. You can use whatever scraps you have accumulated, carrot tops, celery leaves, onion or leek scraps, etc. Homemade stock tastes so much better than that stuff in a box. Ever since I started making it myself I will never go back. If you eat chicken, just add your leftover remains to this non-recipe to make chicken stock. It will keep in the refrigerator for about a week or you can freeze it.

    make ahead collard wrap with cashew cream

    2 Comments

    It can be challenging to bring a healthy, mess free, utensil free meal on the go. This wrap is perfect for plane rides, beach days, hikes, etc. Since there’s no bread or flour tortilla, there’s nothing to get soggy! The collards are used in place of bread and are much healthier too! Feel free to put whatever vegetables you have on hand in this wrap. If you have a nut allergy, you can substitute hummus for the cashew cream. The cashew cream is amazing though, so don’t skimp on it if you don’t have an allergy to cashews! You’ll probably want to eat it plain with a spoon.

    roasted spring vegetables & brown rice

    No Comments

    I like the motto “cook once, eat twice.” Making a large batch of roasted vegetables and quinoa or brown rice and using it for multiple meals makes eating healthfully a whole lot easier. We are all busy people and if there’s not something healthy easily available, we’re much more prone to go without eating or buy something unhealthy on the go. Eating whole foods is as simple as chopping up a variety of seasonal vegetables, sticking them in the oven while your whole grain of choice simmers away on the stove, and there you have a handful of meals all ready to go!

    comforting french lentil soup

    1 Comment

    With the cold winter weather on the east coast I thought it would be appropriate to share my favorite lentil soup recipe. Like most soups, this one is much better the next day, so much so that I always make it a day in advance. I also thought it would be a good time to weigh in on what I think about the popular Paleo/Whole30 diet since those diets do not allow you to eat beans or legumes (and therefore lentils).
