Sweet Potato Salsa Soup

I got a new cookbook when we went gluten-free. It’s called Against All Grain, by Danielle Walker, and as of now, it has nearly 1,900 5-star reviews on Amazon, so that speaks volumes. I’m so impressed by not only her recipes, but Ms. Walker also took every photo in the book! Anyway, I’ve tried a couple recipes so far and been pleased. This recipe is my adaptation of her... read more

5 Fast, Easy, Healthy Summer Meals

After more than a year and a half of a nutritarian lifestyle, I think I was starting to lose perspective. People eat basically healthy, I thought, so what’s with all the disturbing health news? I was brought back to reality when I saw this recent Meijer sale ad insert in the Sunday paper. It lists “5 days of family meals for under $50.” The meals are 1) toaster waffles... read more

Kohlrabi-Ginger Soup

My first time cooking with kohlrabi and I attempted an original recipe!  “Kohl,” for “cabbage,” and “rabi,” for “turnip” (Germanic)–this nutrient dense food contains 140% RDA of vitamin C, 19% RDA fiber, and 14% RDA potassium in a 1 cup serving.  Add in the russett potato, carrots, and awesome anti-inflammatory ginger and turmeric, and you have an... read more

Sweet Potato Coconut Rice Bowl

This is a really sweet, tasty dish, but my husband and I agree that it’s more of a side dish; it just wasn’t hearty enough for a main dish.  The flavor and texture are excellent, though, so don’t count it out!  Our youngest daughter really liked it. The recipe is from the Family Kitchen. Sweet Potato Coconut Rice Bowl   Print Recipe type: Quick One-Pot Dinner Ingredients ... read more

Quinoa Tabbouleh

Ahhh…nothing says summer like a refreshing salad with crisp veggies.  I love the Asian Slaw, but this is a tasty alternative that is higher in protein due to the quinoa.  It has a very light, simple flavor and is easy to prepare. This recipe is from Tosca Reno’s Eat Clean Diet Cookbook.   Quinoa Tabbouleh   Print Recipe type: Quick One-Pot Dinner Ingredients 1 cup quinoa,... read more

Vegan Pad Thai

Whereas my favorite flavors are Indian and Mexican, my husband favors Asian and Italian.  He decided to try his hand at this Pad Thai recipe from Happy Herbivore because he loves “real” Pad Thai.  Even I thought this was pretty darn good–I told him he can make it again!  We have altered the ingredient amounts from the original recipe because we like leftovers.  This is a super-easy... read more

Curried Cauliflower and Chickpeas

I had an old head of cauliflower languishing in the produce drawer, so I liberated it from the fridge for an adaptation of this recipe from  Although the original recipe includes tofu, my husband and I agreed the dish would be tastier without it after the first time I made it (it added nothing and was a pain in the prep and cooking), so I omitted it.  The flavor of this meal... read more

Easy Southwest Beans and Quinoa

One of the easiest meals I’ve made in a long time; the toughest part of prep was chopping an onion!  This is fast and has a really good, mild flavor–maybe even too mild.  It has a very mild Southwest flavor that my kids really enjoy. Some people might prefer to splash some hot sauce or cayenne on the finished product. This recipe is from Julieanna Hever’s Complete Idiot’s Guide... read more

Jo’s Loaded Fried Rice

I don’t know who Jo is, but when I had this amazing fried rice named for him at a Thai restaurant in Sandusky, Ohio, I knew I had to recreate it. I think I did a pretty good job! I would never have thought to put a ton of different bean varieties or raisins in fried rice, but it’s awesome. As with any fried rice, feel free to flex the amounts and types of vegetables in it.   5.0 from 1... read more

Root Veggie Korma

One of the cool aspects of this new eating lifestyle is I’m discovering the wealth of the produce section! I decided to try taro root because I love root veggies and had never tried it. I did a little research and discovered 1) taro root is toxic when raw, so it must be cooked and 2) it is described as having a “nutty” flavor. I found this recipe for taro root korma and decided to go for... read more

Sri Lankan Kale with Black Beans and Sweet Potatoes

Oh yum, yum, yummy! Shredded coconut, kale, black beans, lime juice, potatoes…who thinks of putting these things together? Thankfully, Wendy over at Healthy Girl’s Kitchen did, because it is awesome. I bookmarked this recipe months ago and finally got around to making it for my birthday. What a treat! Totally going to make this one again–delicious, super-healthy, and simple to make.   ... read more

Moroccan Sweet Potato, Spinach & Chickpea Bowl

I am loving all the recipe inspiration I’m finding on Pinterest! This recipe is an adaptation of this tagine recipe from Closet Cooking. I loved the look of the dish and the sound of the spice blend, but I was missing all his key ingredients–butternut squash, quinoa, and Swiss chard. As they say, though–necessity is the mother of invention, so I subbed sweet potato, millet, and baby... read more
