Avocado Lime Egg Salad

I’m really excited because I’m about to go get some testing done at a local integrative facility called Movement RX. Back in January, I attended their Grand Opening party and actually WON THE RAFFLE! The prize? Some metabolic testing ūüėČ I’m not one to usually measure stuff like that. Since I have some weird food/body…

Carrot, Apple, and Bacon Slaw

I feel like hot weather should warrant¬†its own category of recipes. You know what I’m talking about. The kind of oppressive heat and humidity that makes oven or stove top cooking¬†masochistic at best and completely impossible at worst. That was this week for me. I think I made salad for lunch and dinner multiple days…

Simple Greek Olive Salad

I posted¬†this idea up on my Instagram the other day so HOPEFULLY you already saw it cause you’re a Clean Plate follower! But if not, then here’s the bloggy version of that post. You better sit down. Cause this is gonna take a while… …Just kidding! This is the easiest of the easy. A SUPER…

Basil, Peach, and Bacon Salad

As we near the end of summer, I want to encourage you all to enjoy the fruits of the season in as many ways as possible! Contrary to common knowledge, fruit isn’t just a snack or something you put in a smoothie. If you want to get really creative in the kitchen, use fruit in¬†your…

BBQ Ranch Chicken Salad

Does anyone remember “tearing” lettuce for salads growing up? It had to be one of the most frequent jobs passed on to us children while mom was making dinner. Right up there with shredding cheese and opening cans. I honestly can’t think of a job more inefficient than the tearing of lettuce. First of all,…

Strawberry Quinoa Salad with Mustard Vinaigrette

NOT PALEO ALERT! This salad is probably closer to being PEGAN than Paleo. If you haven’t heard, Pegan is the new darling of the¬†diet world. It’s a combination of our two favorite “extreme” diets out there; Paleo and Vegan. Um, what? I’ve always said that paleo and veganism are more alike than dissimilar. I guess…

Apple Bacon Chicken Salad

  Here’s a little tidbit most people do not know about me: I’m not a big fan of leftover chicken. I much prefer¬†eating it freshly cooked right off the grill or straight out of the oven with salty crispy skin and juicy meat. Leftover chicken is just… meh. It’s boring, tough, and difficult to restore…

Greek Quinoa Salad with Red Pepper Sauce

A colorful¬†quinoa recipe for my¬†plant-based¬†friends! I generally don’t eat quinoa, but I do have some vegan/vegetarian skills up my sleeve. I also occasionally receive¬†requests from clients to prepare quinoa or rice dishes. I felt inspired to share a vegan-friendly¬†dish in light of this week’s book release from Rich Roll and Julie Piatt, The Plant Power…

Spicy Mango Shrimp Salad

I’m in love with¬†this fresh, light, and colorful salad. I don’t cook with fish or shellfish too often, but this dish makes me want to change that PRONTO. Spicy Mango Shrimp Salad 1 lb. shrimp, peeled and de-veined (tail-off) 1 Tbsp. red palm oil or coconut oil 1/2 jalape√Īo, seeded and diced 1/2 cucumber, peeled…

Sunshine Salad

The ingredients for this dish are actually more closely associated with the winter season, but the colors are just so gloriously reminiscent of the springtime Southern California sunshine! Actually, I suppose that winter in SoCal is just as sunshiney… My apologies¬†to all the cold states out there! If your part of the world is not…
