  • favorite tuna salad sandwich

    I know tuna salad tends to get a bad reputation but I absolutely love it! I try to incorporate it at least once a week because it’s not only a great source of protein but also provides heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids. Whenever I feature my tuna melts on Instagram, I get a lot of questions about how I make my… [Continue Reading]

carrot cake overnight oatmeal

Raise your hand if you love the idea of getting your veggies in first thing in the morning  I thought so. And luckily for you, I created this carrot cake overnight oatmeal so you can easily do it WITHOUT needing a blender for a kale smoothie. (though those are also pretty delicious!) But, good as they are, kale smoothies don’t…

winter kale, quinoa, fruit & nut salad

There’s something so refreshing about a huge pile of bright green kale to me. Whether I’m baking it, using it in soup, throwing it into a smoothie or making it the base of my salad, it just makes me feel good.  I’m sure that feeling is due in large part to the numerous nutrients it provides (like calcium, vitamins A, C…

The best part about them is that they can be a side dish or a main meal on their own.  You’re getting protein from the cheese and walnuts, healthy fat from the olive oil and veggies…

easy spiralized veggies & turkey marinara

I’ve never been a been New Year’s resolution maker.  I don’t know why.  I guess because I’m always setting goals for myself and doing my best to try to reach them no matter what time of year it is.

baby: my favorite products for the first two months

It’s hard to believe that Owen is already 2 months old!  I know everyone says this, but time really does fly.  It’s funny because on the one hand, there’s still so much we feel like we’re adjusting to (helloooo lack of sleep!) yet we can also hardly remember what life was like before he joined us at home. I often…

the best candied pecans

You guys. These things are indescribably good.  They’re the perfect combination of sweet, salty and crunchy.  They’re literally everything you could ever want in a snack (or a meal if you’re like me and literally can’t stop eating them until you’re full!).
