Spinach and Artichoke Hummus

Spinach and Artichoke Hummus

I made this once before and then ate it all before I got a chance to photograph it. Hummus is quite literally one of the easiest snacks to make yourself as long as you have a good blender. It doesn’t take long to blend everything […]

Clean Eating Barbecue Sauce

Clean Eating Barbecue Sauce

It took me several barbecue sauce recipes to really find the right one. Some were too ketchup-like. Some not spicy enough. But finally I found the perfect combination of ingredients for a CLEAN easy to make barbecue sauce. The key ingredient that I used to […]

Mediterranean Meal Prep Bowls

Mediterranean Meal Prep Bowls

I was craving Greek food one day. It happens. I also wanted to give a dairy-free tzatziki sauce a try so I made one with coconut milk for these Mediterranean meal prep bowls. This bowl contains quinoa and ground turkey that I cooked with some Mediterranean […]

Things to Do With Date Syrup (and why you should make your own!)

Things to Do With Date Syrup (and why you should make your own!)

So what is this “date syrup” stuff I’m always trying to get you all to use in my recipes? I link to it so much I thought it wise to actually create a whole post about it. Because you’ll see it pop up here so […]

Burgers with Raspberry Chipotle Ketchup

Burgers with Raspberry Chipotle Ketchup

These were my first BEEF burgers in a loooooong time. I realized I needed more B-Vitamins and Iron for my energy levels so I started incorporating red meat again. Last week it was steak and veggies. The week before I made these burgers because 93% ground beef […]

Baked Chicken & Strawberry Jalapeno Salsa

Baked Chicken & Strawberry Jalapeno Salsa

I just ate this moments before writing this and I just have to brag about it for a minute. I marinated this chicken at about 4:30 this morning (the day that I’m writing this)…I woke up, unable to sleep as usual and felt like getting […]

Chocolate Coconut Almond Butter (Dairy-Free!)

Chocolate Coconut Almond Butter (Dairy-Free!)

So I love my salted dark chocolate almond butter. I just recently finished up the second batch I made and it’s a good thing because it had non-dairy-free chocolate in it. Even if it’s trace amounts I want to try to stay away from it […]

Cilantro Lime Shrimp Tacos (with Mango Salsa and Cilantro Avocado Sauce)

Cilantro Lime Shrimp Tacos (with Mango Salsa and Cilantro Avocado Sauce)

Ah, shrimp tacos are hands down one of my favorite summer meals. I don’t even need the tortillas or cheese because there is so much other good stuff going on here. This recipe makes for great lettuce tacos – even if it’s a bit messy […]

Salted Dark Chocolate Almond Butter

Salted Dark Chocolate Almond Butter

This salted dark chocolate almond butter might be my favorite nut butter so far. It’s a close call with this and the sunflower-coconut. I made it last Sunday because Justin skipped the gym. I was up early and did a little apartment gym workout before 8am. Then […]

Spicy Honey Mustard Chicken

Spicy Honey Mustard Chicken

Sometimes I feel like I just shouldn’t plan my meals because the things I don’t plan end up being awesome. I just use things I have and wa-la! Fun things like this happen. We got some chicken at BJ’s last weekend when we got our […]
