Pesto Egg Salad Wraps

I’ve done a post with collard wraps before, but I just wanted to remind you how awesome they are. You can literally wrap ANYTHING; Tuna salad, chicken salad, lunch meat with some tomato and avocado… YUM! This egg salad uses pesto as a binder, but if you’re more of a mayonnaise person, use it! My recipe for Cilantro-Pistachio…

Cobb Salad with Dairy-Free Ranch

This is an delicious salad with an even more amazing dressing!

Burger Eggs

I wanted to make some burgers to use for meals throughout the week, but I was also hungry for breakfast. This is the story of how Burger Eggs were born! This recipe is great because you can get two things done at once and only dirty up one skillet. Lately, I’ve been a huge fan of…

Bacon Apple Breakfast Sausage

Every Friday I make lunch for my coworkers. It’s my little “Undercover Paleo Operation”, showing regular, non-paleo folks how yummy it is to eat like a caveman!

Salmon and Avocado Omelette

We are definitely creatures of habit. No doubt about it. Even as a chef, I find my household grocery list looking pretty repetitive week to week. This doesn’t happen as much with produce because I like to shop seasonally. For example, during the fall/winter months, hard squashes were always in my reusable totes, but since its turing…
