Poppin’ Peanut Noodles

Tempeh Bacon Lettuce & Tomato Sammies (1)

There’s nothing better than a quick and easy dinner on a weeknight. Yesterday was not the busiest of days (which I am truly grateful for) but Matthew and I got quite a bit done around the house. I am so grateful I am marrying a man who doesn’ t mind sweeping and mopping. We’ve done some serious sweating the last few days. We did one round of Insanity by Shaun T (which is 2 months) and now we are starting all over again. And we are going harder this time around. This equals buckets of sweat. So I am really grateful for a clean floor.

After a 40-minute sweat fest, I didn’t want to spend so much time in the kitchen. I really wanted something easy, nourishing and freakin’ delicious. I love throwing a bunch of things together (basically cleaning house in the fridge- this keeps things from going bad) and what better way to do that than stir-frying some veg and tossing some brown rice noodles with peanut sauce. Amazeballs!

Sinfully Simple Veggie Pot Pies

2015-02-20 21.05.24-1

Happy Friday darlings! I’m sitting here, cozied up on the couch planning for the month of April (can you believe April starts next week?!) and reflecting on last night’s workshop. Yesterday, I co-hosted a workshop with a wonderful yoga teacher, Erica, from Nueva Alma Yoga and Wellness Studio. She led our class through a soulful yoga flow while I led one of my first (not in my home) cooking demos. Holy cow! You know, I am amazed at how obvious the signs from the Universe are when we just listen. For real though. I kid you not. There was something absolutely natural and free-ing about leading the cooking demo and I really felt I was in my element. You besta believe, I’m gonna do more of these thangs 😉

Rockin’ Roasted Red Pepper Mac n Cheese

2015-02-08 19.55.46

With all this cold weather lately, anything cheesy sounds more desirable and I’m kind of sick of soup (I’m lying). And it’s amazing that Matthew is such a fan of my mac n cheese especially after the holiday’s when I made him and his coworkers a batch with bacon in it. So on the random day of the week when I ask if he has any requests for the week (yea, we do that in our house) he blurts out: MAC N CHEESE! Now, don’t even get me started on the amazingness of mac and cheese. There is something not only comforting but just absolutely warming about slurping down this cheesy dish. And who I am to deny myself this delightful opportunity to explore a healthier way to satisfy my craving?!

Krazy for Kale

I know, I spelled crazy wrong. But there is a sense of madness that ensues once you fall in love with kale. But of course, kale isn’t for everyone just like there is no perfect diet. For me, kale belongs in everything from smoothies to pizza. Yes. I said pizza. If I could have my ideal healthy but delicious pizza it would have kale all up on it.
