Valentine‘s Day Recipes

I hope you have some special Valentine‘s plans this week! Ever since I was a little kid, I‘ve had a soft spot in my heart for heart-shaped treats. As an adult, it‘s one of the most special holidays that Jack and I celebrate. Traditionally, it‘s the one night a year that he cooks by himself, and whatever he decides to make is always a surprise. His trip to the grocery store, with zero guidance, is an approximately 2-hour ad

Seared Tofu Banh Mi

When I lived in Austin, I never had a reason to make a banh mi sandwich at home because some of my favorite banh mi places (Lulu B‘s and Elizabeth Street) were right down the street. But suddenly daikon radish started showing up right next to my favorite colorful carrots at the farmers market, and I knew some homemade sandwich-making was in order - the carrot and daikon were perfect for making the pickled vegetables that a good banh mi reci

Shiitake Maki with Carrot Ginger Sauce

It‘s sushi day! You might be wondering - why the heck would you roll sushi at home when it‘s so much easier to order it at a restaurant? Because it‘s fun, it‘s affordable, and it‘s way more fresh than take-out sushi but the best part is that you can get creative about what you choose to fill your rolls with. No more cucumber-only veggie sushi rolls! These rolls are filled with savory roasted shiitake mushrooms, avoca

How to Cook Spaghetti Squash

I get so many questions about how to cook spaghetti squash, so I thought I‘d share my go-to method for roasting it, a few tips, and a couple of my favorite spaghetti squash recipes. First things first: cut it in half lengthwise. Then, scoop out the seeds and roast it. Next, drizzle the insides lightly with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. I find that adding too much oil and too much salt at this stage makes the squash a bit wate

Crispy Roasted Chickpeas

It‘s no secret I‘m a fan of chickpeas - they‘re a great addition to soups, stews, salads, sandwiches, you name it. Not only are they a good vegetarian protein source, but they can also bump up the texture in a dish. If you‘ve been reading the blog for a while, though, you know that I‘m not a fan of mushy food. Sometimes I‘m craving something crispy in a salad, and chickpeas‘ soft texture won‘t satis

Rainbow Kale Salad with Carrot Ginger Dressing

Is it just me, or does it seem like the kale salad has gone out of style? For a while there, the internet was a kale-crazy place to be, but it seems to have fallen out of favor due to cauliflower salads, roasted squash salads, and even pasta salads.While I was pondering this important life issue, I realized that it had not only been a while since I‘d posted a kale salad recipe - it had been a while since I‘d even made a kale salad for

Healthier Game Day Recipes

It‘s game day week! Not that we‘re big sports fans, but Iam a big fan of any day where it‘s perfectly acceptable to eat all of the spicy, salsa-smothered, avocado-filled foods that I crave. So I‘m sharing my healthier versions of traditional party favorites that don‘t sacrifice in flavor because, well, foods like avocados, black beans, spicy peppers, and fresh salsa just taste good and are good for you!

My Daily Tea Routine

It‘s an understatement to say that we really love tea. We drink more tea in our household than all other beverages combined. Green tea, hibiscus tea, and fennel tea are some of our regulars, but this post is about 3 new (to me) teas that I‘ve started incorporating into my daily routine over the last few weeks. We‘re partnering with Traditional Medicinals on this post because their teas are so wonderful. My obsession with Traditi

Healthy Lunch Meal Prep Ideas

It‘s February, which means that we‘re a whole month past the healthy new year enthusiasm that we all might have had 34 days ago when the clock struck January 2nd but I‘m here to tell you that you it‘s ok(!) if you turned to cheesy comfort food during the polar vortex or if you‘re craving chocolate now that Valentine‘s Day is getting close. In my opinion, life is too short to (ever) feel guilty about food and on
