This may look like a healthy, power breakfast (which it definitely can be), but I tend to enjoy this Warm Blackberry Yogurt Bowl as an after dinner treat. There’s something so sweet and satisfying about warm blackberries over chilled yogurt. With the addition of bananas and sliced almonds, this is a delicious dessert that you can enjoy without any guilt.
Sometimes the hardest part of preparing a lunch or dinner meal is figuring out what you’re in the mood for. When in doubt, my go-to is a quinoa bowl full of my favorite foods. In this case, I put together chickpeas, kidney beans, carrots, and celery. A simple combination that satisfies my craving for a healthy, filling lunch that keeps me happy all afternoon.
To top it off, I put together an easy dressing with ingredients I had on hand. I love balsamic vinegar and with a dash of salt, pepper and oregano, I was able to add just the right amount of flavor.
I am always looking for different and creative ways to integrate vegetables into my family’s diet. (With a 6- and 8-year-old at home, I’ve discovered that I need to somehow keep veggies interesting). This Roasted Vegetable Soup recipe incorporates 8 fresh vegetables and simple herbs to create one amazing combination. Roasting the veggies before pureeing brings out their sweetness and intensifies their natural and delicious flavors.
I find that this soup hits the spot after a few weeks of indulging during the holidays. It’s a great recipe to take with you into the New Year!
There are certain foods that not only taste great but also make you feel great. Roasted vegetables do that for me. Whenever I eat this savory dish, I feel like I’m taking care of myself. Although I like vegetables and prepare them in many different ways, roasting is by far my favorite.
This dish is so simple to make but will impress even your vegetable adverse family members or guests. For this recipe I made the yellow, purple and orange carrots the stars of the dish but you can pick just about any vegetables including squash, asparagus, cabbage, etc.
It’s a great recipe to incorporate into your summer meals. Enjoy!
Blueberries and banana make for a perfect combination in this smoothie. Made with 5 simple ingredients, this protein-packed blueberry smoothie is sweet and refreshing. With a little bit of vegan protein powder, it can be a perfect breakfast or post workout snack. If you can’t find fresh blueberries simply use frozen.
I admit it: I have a sweet tooth. Sometimes I crave a sweet treat at the end of a long day. I try to limit my indulgences to once a week and keep them gluten-free. This one is full of pears and blackberries (or raspberries if you prefer), and is accompanied by a crumble made with gluten-free oats and almonds. The crunch of the crumble is the perfect balance to the tender and juicy fruit. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do!
