Slow Cooker Cod and Butternut Squash in Coconut Milk

I knew I wanted to make a meal in the slow cooker with fish, butternut squash and coconut oil but couldn’t quite find any recipes that matched what I wanted to make. So I decided to wing it, and fortunately the slow cooker makes it hard to mess up. I usually turn the slow cookershow me more

Farro with Tofu and Tomatoes

Fresh tomatoes and basil are key summer ingredients and I paired them with tofu and quick cooking farro for a quick dinner. Farro is like a chewier, plumper version of rice and I always have a bag of Trader Joe’s 10 minute quick cooking variety on hand. And, I prefer cooking it over rice latelyshow me more

Pasta with Asparagus, Chickpeas and Eggs

I have a golden rule when it comes to enjoying pasta: jack up the veggies that you include with your pasta to boost the volume and fiber without inhaling a 4-serving bowl of spaghetti. Basically, have equal parts veg and pasta. Easy, right? This summery pasta dish from Real Simple only called for one poundshow me more

Quinoa with Apricot, Peas and Zucchini

I was all set to make a corn, black bean and quinoa salad for lunch this week for me and the little guy, but then came across this new recipe from Nutrition Stripped that sounded way more delicious than whatever cans of corn and beans I was about to open. And I had just purchasedshow me more

Skillet Tempeh and Sauerkraut

In an effort to recreate a tempeh and sauerkraut dish I had on my last day at Kripalu, I googled around for a recipe that contained the right ingredients: sauerkraut, tempeh, vinegar and soy sauce. While I didn’t find the exact Kripalu recipe, I did come across one that I modified slightly. The tempeh dishshow me more

Basic Tofu Scramble

I recently returned from an A-MA-ZING solo weekend trip to Kripalu, a yoga and health retreat center, where the yoga, workshops, and scenery are wonderful, but the food is even better. A little bit from the Kripalu website: The Kripalu Kitchen uses high-quality, all-natural ingredients to offer an array of nutritionally sound choices at everyshow me more

BBQ Chickpeas and Tempeh

I love a good excuse to use this magical BBQ sauce found at Trader Joe’s. It is both sweet and smokey, made with mustard and molasses, and tasted amazing drizzled over chickpeas and tempeh. The meal came together in minutes, but kept us satisfied for hours, thanks to the fiber-filled chickpeas and protein-packed tempeh. Weshow me more

Ninja slow cooker salmon, farro and asparagus

I love that I have a fancy schmancy slow cooker (given to me by Ninja) that has not only a slow-cook setting, but also a stovetop setting and an oven setting. So I can use it not only for 8-hour slow cooked chili, but also 10 minute quick cooked fish. I was inspired by thisshow me more

Socca with Kale and an Egg

Even though “socca” sounds like something you’d find in your underwear drawer, it’s in fact a delicious, dense, pancake made from protein-packed chickpea flour. I love using it as a base to meals, much like pizza crust. I was inspired by yet another Oh My Veggies recipe – this time for Socca with Sauteed Chardshow me more

Curried Chickpeas and Potatoes over Basmati Rice

Baby Zack is eating more and more of what we’re eating these days, so I try to plan ahead my meals for things that he can easily gum or aren’t too spicy. Chickpeas and sweet potatoes are a favorite of his, so I based this meal around them and made a curry dish that wasshow me more
