Fall Veggie Hash

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! 🍂🍁

Carrot Turmeric Smoothie Bowl

Happy Friday!! One of my favorite carrot turmeric smoothie bowls pictured here 🥕🥕🥕 Woke up early this morning and tried a Yoga Sculpt class and loved it! I don’t personally do yoga, but am trying to incorporate it into my weekly routine because I keep hearing of all its awesome benefits. I went to the studio this morning to sign up for class and they asked me if I wanted to do a regular vinyasa or a yoga sculpt (aka cardio + weights). I went for the yoga sculpt because that is so much more up my alley. I’m not sure what happened- we did burpees and squats and yoga and it was so much fun. I’ve never been to a yoga class like that and it put me in sucha good mood. Hope everyone’s Friday is off to a great start!

Carrot Cake Smoothie Bowl 🥕

Carrot cake smoothie bowl! I think this is my new favorite smoothie bowl. Had this for lunch today and I don’t even feel guilty about eating this “treat” because it’s primarily made of veggies, but still tastes sweet.

Turkey Burgers with Sweet Potato Fries

I want these Turkey Burgers with avocado and sweet potato fries that I made the other weekend. This is the last week I’m Seattle for work and then I head back to NYC to end my 3 weeks of straight travel. I had so much fun traveling these past 2 weekends but am seriously ready to not live out of a suitcase and get back home- be in my own apartment and cook my own food.

… at for at least a couple of days until I pack up and leave again 💁‍♀️✈️ 

See recipe below!

Rice-less Cauliflower Paella! 🥘💃🏼

Made this paella using riced cauliflower instead of rice and it’s real good. You can even get that “sticking to the pan” effect of normal paella, you just have to let it sit a little longer. 

I have a smaller paella pan so the ingredients are proportional to my pan size, if you have a bigger pan, the portion size may very.

My Favorite Green Pineapple Banana Smoothie

Made my favorite green pineapple banana smoothie this morning! 🍍🍌

I haven’t made this smoothie in a long time because of the recent hype over sugar. I’ve been avoiding high sugar fruits, including bananas and pineapples. While I agree that we are eating way too much sugar and need to cut down on sugar, particularly refined sugar, I think that eliminating it completely would also eliminate some of the joys in what you eat. Instead, I’m focusing on increasing my awareness of added sugars to meals. Furthermore, eliminating high sugar fruits also means missing out on their great health benefits. Pineapples are hydrating, which is important for summer, are rich in vitamins and antioxidants, contain fiber, and have anti-inflammatory effects. And they are soooo good!

I feel great great when I have this smoothie. I’m a firm believer in listen to your body, not to trends.

Carrot Cake Mini Muffins

Threw together the leftovers from my kitchen and came out with these carrot cake muffins! They are vegan, gluten free, have no added sugar and are awesome! Definitely going to try making these before my next flight ✈️ to pack as breakfast. They were too easy to make.

I use a bamboo cutting board from Thrive Market to prep my veggies because plastics interacting with your food is a thing!
