I'm all about a giant entrée salad that's loaded with all the goods and can easily serve as a filling and satisfying meal on it's own. No wimpy salads around here, thank you! This Niçoise-ish Salad has got it all - tons of veggies, protein, healthy fats, lots of texture (I love a refreshing crunch in my salads), and obviously loads of flavor! If you're wondering why it's a Niçoise-"ish" salad... well I figured I'd skip the potatoes to keep it a little lighter, swap the usual niçoise olives for castelvetrano (Mitch's fave!), and add some avocado (because who can possibly make a salad without it)! The combo of ingredients is pretty amazing together and let's not forget the lemon dijon dressing! It's super easy to whip up and is a great homemade staple to pair with any salad, but it goes especially well with everything that's packed into this mega Niçoise!
You guys know I’m all about a quick, healthy, and easy one-pan meal. I’m definitely not the girl who loves to spend all night in the kitchen – as much as I love to cook, I like to be in and out of there in 30 minutes so I can relax and enjoy the rest of my night. While cooking a healthy dinner might sometimes seem a little daunting, it can also be as easy as throwing a bunch of ingredients into a single pan, adding some flavors and seasonings, putting it all into a bowl and calling it a day! That's exactly what's happening here with this Egg Roll in a Bowl!
If you haven't tried spaghetti squash yet, it's time! I know it may look intimidating, but it's actually so easy to make and it seriously satisfies the pasta cravings in a much healthier way! Usually when I make spaghetti squash, I'll scrape out the "noodles" and serve them in a bowl with some sauce or I'll top it with my Instant Pot Turkey Meatballs. Mitch absolutely loves it with bolognese sauce though, so for Valentine's Day, I wanted to do a different take on it and mixed the "spaghetti" with the sauce and some cheese, then stuffed it back into the outer shell to bake until it was golden and the top was perfectly crisped. The result was beyond delicious, and honestly, it's way more fun to eat your own spaghetti squash bolognese "boat" than to have it out of a bowl! Mitch said it was one of the best things I've ever made (I have to agree!) and in the few weeks since v-day, I've made it three times, so I figured it was time to share it with you!
Brunch is 100% my favorite meal. One of my best friends jokes that I'm never just eating breakfast... I'm always brunching. There's just something so nice and relaxing about brunch. In my mind, brunch is a leisurely morning where you've slept in, put on comfy clothes, sip a cappuccino or a matcha latte, and sit back and relax while a delicious spread comes your way. What's better than that? Clearly I love enjoying a fabulous brunch out, but I also love hosting one at my house! It's definitely the most stress-free meal to take on. It's casual, it doesn't require anything too fancy or complicated, and pretty much everything can be prepped ahead of time. Here are my tips for the next time you're hosting a brunch!
I've got a 10-minute, 5-ingredient recipe for ya that I know you'll absolutely love - Paleo Coconut Shrimp! It's crispy, crunchy, salty, coconutty, and delicious. This recipe is super versatile and really pairs well with anything and everything - you can serve it as an appetizer with your favorite dips or a mango salsa, serve it over greens and avocado for a fresh and delicious salad, use it for taco night, pair it with my fave Cabbage & Apple Slaw and wrap it up into lettuce wraps, or mix it in with stir-fry veggies. The options are endless!
