Ever tried a waffle made from riced cauliflower?! Game changer. Frozen riced cauliflower is sucha staple in my freezer. I literally use it in everything- my smoothies, to make cauliflower fried rice, and now waffles! It’s so easy to have on hand plus has no sugar and is super low cal. One waffle is made with sweet potato and egg and topped with carmelized apple slices and roasted pecans the other waffle is made with riced cauliflower and egg and topped with 1/2 of an avocado. Search my blog for how to make sweet potato waffles and see below the recipe to make riced cauliflower waffles!
Carbo loaded to go watch the NYC Marathon this past Sunday with this loaded sweet potato! Topped with red peppers roasted in avocado oil, black beans, cilantro, and guac. This was 10/10 👌🏻
Fall veggie hash for dinner last night! Made with roasted brussel sprouts, roasted sweet potatoes, carmelized apples, and roasted nuts. I’m literally gushing over this combo. It is gluten free, dairy free, and added sugar free. I think I know what dish I’m bringing to Friendsgiving this year! 🍂🍁
Starting off Monday with my go-to smoothie! I post this smoothie ALOT on my Instagram @wellbymel_ and that’s because it’s so damn easy, delicious, and all of the ingredients are super easy to have on hand. This is key for me because I travel so often, I always keep certain staples in my freezer and pantry so I don’t need to run to the grocery store the second I get home or get food delivered. This smoothie is low sugar and full of healthy fats to keep you full longer. I love it because I literally won’t even think about food for hours after I have this smoothie which I need esp on busy days. Here’s the recipe:
Lentil bolognese on spaghetti squash for dinner last night. I’m definitely on a kick with all of the fall seasonal foods, but especially spaghetti squash. It is so easy to make and I love subbing it for traditional pasta. This is gluten free, dairy free, added sugar free, and vegan/vegetarian.
I made this pumpkin bread for fall this year and I’m loving it! It is gluten free and dairy free. It is sweetened with 5 dates and a tsp of monkfruit sweetener. It is made with all clean ingredients and super easy to make. Enjoy!
I’m a huge fan of spaghetti squash, so I’m loving that it’s in season right now. I usually cook it with tomato sauces but I also really like to cook it with Asian-inspired dishes. This recipe is made with bok choi, red pepper, green onions to top. The sauce is made with pb, coconut aminos, coconut milk, lime juice, ginger, and garlic. It is gluten free, dairy free, and soy free.
I’m a HUGE sweet potato fan. It’s definitely one of my favorite vegetables, even if it’s on the starchy side. I impulse bought a waffle maker earlier this week because I wanted to make some sweet potato waffles. It did take me a couple of tries to get the recipe down, but now that I did it is so easy to make and you can do soo much with it. I’ve made both sweet and savory revisions of sweet potato waffles and all that you have to vary is what you season them with and what you add as toppings. I’ll show both a savory and sweet version of sweet potato waffles that I made so you can get some ideas.
I’m definitely more of a summer person, but I’ve been making all of the cozy fall foods lately. I made butternut squash soup for dinner tonight. It is gluten free, dairy free, soy free, and added sugar free. See recipe below!
Starting off Friday morning with this tart beet berry smoothie bowl on my couch in nyc. I’m obsessed with the color of this smoothie and the tart beet berry combo is one of my favs. Super excited to go see a functional medicine doctor for a routine visit (said no one ever, right?!) I think functional medicine is so interesting even tho I have zero medical background (I am an engineer by degree). I’ve been waiting for this visit for months so hopefully it’s worth the excitement. Happy Friday!
