Romaine Heart Salad with Easy Avocado Vinaigrette

Romaine Heart Salad with Easy Avocado Vinaigrette

Finding a salad I love at a restaurant is a rare occurrence for me. My husband would tell you that I usually have a handful of complaints about nearly every salad I order, no matter where I’m dining. Too much dressing, too little lettuce, too close to something I make at home, or too trendy are among my most frequent… Continue Reading

Chocolate Chia Mousse

Chocolate Chia Mousse

Whenever I see a recipe for a green smoothie, chia pudding or protein ball that the creator claims “tastes exactly like a chocolate chip cookie [or whatever delicious thing he/she is trying to replicate] only 100% healthy!!” – I’m skeptical. Because I have yet to meet a recipe built around avocado, chia seeds, or protein powder that truly… Continue Reading

Naturally Pink Rice Crispy Treats

Naturally Pink Rice Crispy Treats

Just when we’ve gotten into a healthy eating groove after the holiday cookie frenzy, Valentine’s Day pops up. Though it’s not as intensely focused on sweets and doesn’t last as long, those red-and-pink M&M’s on display everywhere sure do look tempting!

Sesame Ginger Avocado Dip

Sesame Ginger Avocado Dip

I love a good Chip Buffet on Superbowl Sunday. But I also like to balance all that delicious salt and grease with some light, crunchy veggies. Just to feel even, you know? Of course, those store-bought vegetable platters are never very appealing. At best they include refrigerated tomatoes (the worst!), dried out baby carrots, and mediocre ranch dressing.
