There are days when you want chocolate and there are days when you want kale. Today is one of those days that a fresh green salad, clean protein, and a big squeeze of lemon is just what the doctor ordered. I made a No-Mayo Tuna Salad earlier this month featuring greek yogurt and avocado instead of mayo, but this Quick and Easy Dijon Tuna Salad substitutes dijon mustard in lieu of a heavy mayonnaise blend….
I write this as I’m curled up on my couch, wrapped in a fuzzy blanket, sipping on my bowl of Winter Weight Loss soup. They always say that the best creations come out of your own need and while I’m freezing my buns off this February in New York City, I couldn’t ask for anything more. I must note though, winter or not, this soup is any season approved and packed with nutrition to keep you fueled up.
It’s cold outside, really really cold. And on winter days like these a salad definitely won’t do the trick. Although there is a time and place for the beloved kale salad, mid-January is not one of them. Today I want to share this clean tomato and veggie stew with you that is not only easy to make, but it’s also open to your own interpretation using almost any veggies you have on hand. If your creative side is feeling lazy today, then take this recipe ingredient for ingredient to achieve my personal favorite results….
I remember someone once told me that every girl he ever dated ended up cooking him salmon. Well, why is that? Probably because salmon is that one food you can get away with making despite never cooking a meal in your life. And it’ll still come out really. freakin’. good. Now I’m not saying these girls never cooked before, but what I am saying is that this dish will blow your mind, your boyfriend’s mind, and everyone else’s mind in between. If you’re into fish, you like tasty food, and you are ready to make a killer dish, then don’t think twice about whipping this salmon recipe up….
For the longest time I’ve wanted to make my own falafel. I always see delicious photos on Instagram, but have never had the chance to recreate it on my own. Being in Miami this week and feeling the need to channel my Middle Eastern roots, I decided to take the dive and go for it. But first, the big question at hand. Baked or fried? I wasn’t just going to make a typical falafel because that wouldn’t be so whole after all. Instead I swapped fried for baked and used fresh herbs and spices to bulk it up. The result? A super crispy outer shell and mouthwatering filling. YES! This one is great for vegetarians, vegans, and even avid meat-eaters (ahem, men!)….
You know the drill: New year, new goals, and a ton of motivation. You’re probably setting out to drop those chocolatey holiday pounds and tone up, but by you might notice that by week three your fire lightly starts to fade away and you’re back to the drawing board. Lucky you, I won’t let that happen to you this time around. This New Year’s Resolution Bowl is going to do just the trick to keep you and your goals in check throughout the entire year….
