Whole Wheat Orzo with Roasted Red Peppers & Goat Cheese

This Orzo Pasta with Roasted Red Peppers & Goat Cheese is simple, quick, flavorful & nourishing. I use 100% whole wheat orzo for added fiber, broccoli for added nutrients and jarred roasted red peppers for convenience. A quick sauté of onions and garlic, plus some tangy crumbled goat cheese, give this pasta TONS of flavor with little effort.

Quinoa Grain Salad with Fresh Dill & Goat Cheese

One thing that makes me feel totally on top of life is having a grain-based salad in the fridge for convenient and healthful eating. Unlike lettuce based salads, grain salads get better with time, so they’re perfect as make-ahead meals or for leftover lunches. The ingredients in this particular quinoa salad are simple but come… Continue reading Quinoa Grain Salad with Fresh Dill & Goat Cheese

Heirloom Tomato & Peach Sandwiches with Creamy Goat Cheese

A couple weeks back, Matt and I tried out farm-camping using a booking site known as Hip Camp. We chose an organic farm called Moon in the Pond Farm located in Massachusetts. We usually camp at standard camp grounds, but after several experiences feeling as though we were too close to other campers, we decided… Continue reading Heirloom Tomato & Peach Sandwiches with Creamy Goat Cheese

How to Eat Clean when Dining Out

Dining out, whether trying a new restaurant or returning to a favorite restaurant, has always been one of my favorite past times. Not only do I love enjoying the culinary creations of others and finding inspiration for my own cooking, but it’s also one of my favorite ways to socialize. Since transitioning to an entirely clean… Continue reading How to Eat Clean when Dining Out

Vegan Falafel Pitas with Roasted Beets, Pickled Onions & Lemon-Tahini Sauce

Hi, friends! And happy March! I don’t know about you, but this warm winter weather is rubbing me the wrong way. It feels totally gross to be outside in New York in February without a jacket. While most seem to be loving it, I’m not loving it at all. It’s too unnatural for me. So,… Continue reading Vegan Falafel Pitas with Roasted Beets, Pickled Onions & Lemon-Tahini Sauce

Red Pepper Hummus & Roasted Cauliflower Dipper Bowls

Life is all about finding balance. A balance between work and play. A balance between being active and being lazy. A balance between giving and taking. When it comes to food, your mentality should focus on balance too. This could mean something different for every person. But for me, it’s a balance between pleasing my… Continue reading Red Pepper Hummus & Roasted Cauliflower Dipper Bowls

Roasted Tomato & Creamy White Bean Pita Sandwiches

It’s Day 3 of my “debloat and recharge detox” and I’m feeling good and staying motivated. My detoxes are easy in that I’m not seriously reducing calories or only eating cabbage soup. It’s more about portion controlling, loading up on veggies and fruits (even more than usual) and reducing excess fat, sugar and carbs. Because… Continue reading Roasted Tomato & Creamy White Bean Pita Sandwiches

Greetings from Florida! I can’t even begin to express how nice it is to be totally checked out of reality for the week. No work, no hustle and bustle, no mass transit. It’s just sun, sand, and relaxation here in Boca Grande, Florida. I’ve been coming to Boca Grande since I was a tot.

Easy Homemade Whole Wheat Tortillas

I try really hard to eat fresh, whole foods as much as possible. And if I do purchase packaged foods, I like them to be made with only recognizable ingredients. For example, pasta isn’t difficult to buy prepackaged because it’s easy to find organic pasta made with only 100% whole wheat flour and water. But… Continue reading Easy Homemade Whole Wheat Tortillas

Creamy Tarragon Chickpea Salad

I was lucky enough to spend this past Labor Day weekend at home in St. Louis. My whole family, just like me, is totally food-obsessed, so whenever I go home, the trip is all about the food. Since becoming a vegetarian, my STL restaurant picks have changed a bit. Despite this, there are certain foods… Continue reading Creamy Tarragon Chickpea Salad
