Cold or warm weather, I love my soup, stew and chili recipes! And I'm always busy creating new ones with the season’s best produce. For stews, I love going to the farmer’s market for fresh, local vegetables to combine in one healthy dish.
This White Chicken Stew is a favorite. It is hearty, yet healthy, and full of lean protein. The vegetables along with the beans and chicken create an amazing balance of taste and texture. The meal will leave you and the family feeling warm, happy and satisfied. It’s also easy to make extra servings for delicious (and easy) leftovers.

When cooler temperatures hit, I find myself craving a bowl of hot soup for lunch or dinner. This healthy Navy Bean and Corn soup is one of my favorites. The addition of brown rice pasta not only makes the soup hearty and delicious, but also entirely wheat-free. Use vegetable broth instead of chicken broth, and it’s also 100% vegan. If you’re looking for a meal that will warm you up and satisfy your craving for something rich and savory—then I encourage you to give this healthy recipe a try!

I like to make poached eggs on the weekends when there's a bit more time for a leisurely breakfast or lunch. Poached eggs and spinach on toast are a traditional combination, but I add some avocado for another texture.

1 ripe avocado, peeled, pitted, and cubed
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1/4 teaspoon sea salt (+ more to taste)
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
3/4 pound spinach, stemmed and rinsed, but not dried
Ground black pepper to taste
2 tablespoons white vinegar
4 large eggs
4 slices gluten-free bread, toasted
Hot sauce (optional)
In a small bowl, combine the avocado with the lemon juice and 1⁄4 teaspoon salt. Set aside.
In a large skillet over medium heat, heat the oil. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute, or until
fragrant. Add the spinach and cook until just wilted, using tongs to turn the spinach. Transfer
to a bowl and season with salt and pepper to taste. Wipe the skillet clean.
To poach the eggs, fill the clean skillet halfway with water and add the vinegar. Bring to a boil
over high heat. Break the eggs into 4 small bowls. Remove the pan from the heat and gently
slide the eggs into the skillet. Cover the pan tightly and let the eggs sit for 4 minutes, or until
the whites are set and the yolks are still runny.
Spread the reserved avocado on the toast. Spoon the warm spinach mixture on top. Using a
slotted spoon, carefully transfer the eggs from the skillet to the toast. Serve with the hot sauce

I get excited about breakfast. I get even more excited when I have a delicious and nutritious breakfast that is really fast and simple to make like this Blueberry Banana Smoothie Bowl.
I usually add almond milk when I drink smoothies, but for a smoothie bowl, I leave out the almond milk and use yogurt so it's thicker and easier to eat with a spoon. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
