This is one of my absolute favorite weeknight meals. What's better than throwing a whole bunch of healthy ingredients in one big pot, letting it simmer and do it's thing, and ending up with a delicious, hearty dinner and leftovers for the next couple days!? Not much, my friends! I'm so excited that it's finally sweater weather in San Diego... I've been dying for the opportunity to cozy up with a big bowl of hearty soup, this is the ultimate recipe to satisfy all the Fall feels.
Can you believe it's already November!? Good thing it's finally starting to feel like Fall in San Diego (AKA it's below 70°, instead of 80°, ha!). Now I can officially get in the swing of all the Fall recipes, like this Roasted Delicata Squash Salad, which would be the perfect healthy addition to your Thanksgiving spread! Because no Thanksgiving is complete without an epic Fall salad.
So I know we're in the heart of Fall right now, and we should be wearing cute flannels and boots and making hearty soups and baking delicious muffins ... BUT it's over 100 degrees in San Diego right now (seriously, is that a record??), and that means I'm definitely not turning on the oven. So what's a girl to do to get that fix of cozy Fall flavors? Not to worry ... this Apple Pie Chia Pudding is the perfect way to get in the October spirit without breaking a sweat!
I have to admit ... I've kind of become a bit of a waffle snob. Like I'll only splurge on a waffle if I'm certain that it's going to be a really, reallllly delicious one. Like a real-deal Belgian waffle, fresh out of the waffle maker ... so good that you kind of close your eyes when you eat it that first bite. You know what I mean? That's what I call a worth-it-waffle! And to be honest, I wasn't sure if a healthier waffle could ever quite measure up to the decadent real thing. But boy was I wrong!
Now that we're fully in the swing of Fall, it's time for some cozy recipes. When we're craving cozy meals, usually that means hearty comfort food, which doesn't always seem like the healthiest option. But don't worry, this recipe will totally satisfy those carby cravings without knocking you off your healthy dinner routine. By the way, don't you just love how cauliflower is the solution to making so many of our favorite indulgences so much healthier!? Seriously the most versatile veggie! If you haven't tried Cauliflower "Mashed Potatoes" yet, get excited! You'll totally fall in love with this side dish because it's got that perfect creamy mashed potato consistency, but being that it's made with cauliflower, it's totally light and seriously guilt-free!
