    Easy Mushroom Jalapeno Turkey Burgers

    I love ground turkey – why? Two main reasons: 1. It is an awesome source of protein. 2. It can take on the flavor of pretty much ANYTHING! This is why so many people love to use it as a substitute for beef. Throw a pound of turkey in a pot of chili instead of beef, you just might not be able to tell the difference! Turkey burgers have blown up in the past few years. People are realizing how delicious they can be and how much HEALTHIER they can  be than traditional beef burgers. No, I do not think that turkey burgers taste like beef burgers. BUT that doesn’t…

    Shrimp and Avocado Spring Rolls

    I LOVE THESE SHRIMP AND AVOCADO SPRING ROLLS! They are so fresh, so healthy, and SO delicious. And better yet – they are easy peezy to make! The hardest part is honestly cutting up all the veggies. Shrimp and avocado is one of my favorite combos. Let’s be real though – avocado and anything is awesome. In a sandwich, in the form of guacamole, with eggs, on toast, in salad – you can’t go wrong with an avo-ca-do. I love the combination of fresh veggies in this Shrimp and Avocado Spring Rolls recipe – cucumber, carrots, red cabbage – they give such a lovely crunch that is so well complimented…

    Crispy Peanut Tofu (V)

    Before we even begin to discuss this INCREDIBLE Crispy Peanut Tofu, I must give MAJOR credit to the amazing and fabulous, Lindsay Ostrom, the powerhouse behind one of my FAVORITE food blogs, Pinch of Yum. This recipe was completely and totally inspired by Lindsay’s recipe for Sesame Zoodles with Crispy Tofu. In fact, this is basically Lindsay’s recipe – I simply made a few alterations!   This Crispy Peanut Tofu though… OMG! I have now made it twice in one week. And I have eaten it for pretty much every meal – because seriously, the Crispy Peanut Tofu IS that good. I have enjoyed it over zoodles (as suggested by Lindsay!),…

    Cauliflower Cream Lentil Pasta with Spinach and Mushrooms

    I FEEL SO FANCY! This Cauliflower Cream Lentil Pasta with Spinach and Mushrooms is just DELIGHTFUL! I had only heard of lentil pasta rather recently but it boasts tons of great benefits: Non-GMO Organic High in protein, iron and fiber Low glycemic index Gluten-free (say what? I know…) Cholesterol-free Contains essential vitamins Good source of energy So I decided to give it a shot – I went to Kroger (duh) and went straight to the “organic section.” Sure enough right there in the pasta area, there was red lentil pasta, green lentil pasta, black bean pasta,  chickpea pasta, and other varietals that I had never heard of! Where have I…

    Cauliflower Cream Sauce

    Guys – WOW. This may be one of my favorite recipes – EVER. I know, I am as shocked as you are. I have been avoiding this cauliflower fad for a long time – because really, how could cauliflower taste creamy? Or like pizza crust? I know my pizza crust… But really, truly – this Cauliflower Cream Sauce is DELIGHTFUL! Easy, creamy, healthy and so full of flavor, this Cauliflower Cream Sauce is the perfect substitute for that unhealthy alfredo you are craving… well, every night. No – I’m not going to lie to you friends, it does not taste exactly like alfredo cream sauce. I am not a magician.…

    20 Healthy One Dish Meals

    I have become obsessed with Healthy One Dish Meals – one pan, pot, skillet, dutch oven – it doesn’t matter, I love only having one dish to clean after dinner. I love to cook. I think its fun – trying new recipes, experimenting with new flavors – It is usually healthier and cheaper than going out to eat, and I enjoy it! But even as someone who loves to cook, finding the motivation to make a meal after a long days work is often hard! Why? Because cooking takes time – especially when you are starting from fresh ingredients! I’m hungry right when I get home. And worse yet, cooking…
