Everyone talks about it, but by the time it comes down to actually making it I can’t find one good recipe. Except this one. This Easy Peasy Quinoa Tabbouleh is basic enough to make with your eyes closed. I made it three different times yesterday. And not for any reason other than the fact that it’s insanely delicious and my friends kept wanting more post our Physique 57 workout. If I have the patience to make this three times in a row, then you can make it once (or twice). This is a great dish to keep in the fridge and serve with lunch or dinner….
The past week has taken a slight toll on me. I really didn’t expect to receive the kind of response that I did after I wrote Why I’m Not Vegan Anymore, both positive and negative. Many readers took it as an incomplete description of veganism and of their community– and while I can understand why, I think some of my points may have been misunderstood and perhaps taken out of context….
Disclosure: I have nothing against veganism, nor am I trying to impose my beliefs onto others. This is simply my experience and how I responded to this lifestyle.
I was asked by several people to write about this topic and my own experience so, hopefully without judgement, here goes….
Sweet, juicy, and beautiful are the three words I can think of to describe mangos. They’re that picture-perfect, absolutely delicious fruit that we just can’t get enough of. Recently there’s been a ton of buzz on Instagram on slicing mangos, so I decided to do a quick and easy step-by-step plus share how amazing mangos are for your body and for glowing skin. I’ve also got a quick tip to enhance that natural glow for summer time beauty….
I teased you on Instagram last week, but now it’s finally time to share these Chickpea “Tuna” Salad Wraps. It’s almost scary how much it resembles actual tuna that you can trick anyone, anytime. It’s easy to make and it only takes a few ingredients and less than 5 minutes on the clock. The wrap completes this meal and served with a side salad, it’s a winner….
Dyed deviled eggs aren’t the first thing you think of when you think of healthy snacks, but that’s about to change! I healthified your typical mayonnaise-y appetizer by swapping the deviled portion for a guacamole-esque filling and dyed the eggs with beets. Yes, beets! …
After stalking Two Hands on Instagram, this is one place I’ve been dying to try. I had to find out if the açai bowls really are that pretty in person and if the avocado toast is as good as everyone says it is. The final answer? No doubt. I came here post-Soulcycle, so we were hungry for something healthy, yet filling. On our walk over we found ourselves pacing the streets of Chinatown to find this little gem about 15 minutes later. Oops….
It’s not a proper brunch without a Healthy Huevos Rancheros at the table amongst the regulars, like avocado toast and green juice. This year Father’s Day falls on Sunday, June 21st and what better way to celebrate than with a hearty dish good enough for all of the the dad’s out there too? Because on days like these a Blueberry Buckwheat Breakfast just won’t cut it….
It’s cold and muggy out, but that won’t stop me from fueling a workout this morning. Instead of a standard bowl of oatmeal, I woke up feeling adventurous, so opted for this Warm Farro and Berry Yogurt Bowl.It’s the perfect balance of warm farro and stewed raspberries paired with a cooling blueberry yogurt. …
I, too, have things sitting in my pantry that I have no clue how or when I got them. Is it from 2012? Did I get it last week? Can I still eat it? Below I put together a list of the basic kitchen staples and how long each will last. Feel free to print out this list and refer to it after you make a batch of my Jeweled Brown Basmati Rice or buy chia seeds in bulk and don’t know how long they’ll keep….
