Avocado and Dill Zoodles with Shrimp

I’m always on the lookout for creative zoodle recipes, since they are so good for you and actually pretty filling. This one was fantastic because the sauce didn’t even have to be cooked! All that needs to be cooked is the shrimp, and I prefer to sauté the zoodles too since it softens them a…

Mashed Butternut Squash

Butternut squash has all kinds of health benefits, including a high concentration of potassium and vitamin B6, which supports the immune system and nervous system. I have a deep love for potatoes in all forms .This recipe is a less starchy (and more colorful) side dish that can be used to replace mashed potatoes and…

Homemade Chicken Broth

Bone broths are a goldmine of healing properties: Gut healing – Bone broths are rich in gelatin, which seals up holes in your digestive tract (ulcers, holes in your intestines, leaky gut syndrome). Additionally, they contain the amino acid L-glutamine, which specifically reduces gut inflammation. Bone broths also normalize stomach acid, which is helpful for…

Looking for a fun and unique Valentine’s Day treat? This roasted pecan recipe is the perfect way to show your special someone that you care. You can divide them into little goody bags like this for a fun gift for your coworkers, send a care package to your BFF, or munch on them with your…

Pizza Zoodles

I always forget how ridiculously easy zucchini noodles (AKA “zoodles”) are to make. It seems like it should be a ton of extra work compared with regular pasta, but as long as you have a good spiralizer they take pretty much half the time! And they are also significantly better for you, which is always…

Chicken Piccata

Flavorful. Creamy. Rich. Savory. Heavenly. In case you can’t tell, I really liked this recipe. It took a bit more work than I typically will put into a meal, but it’s perfect for a weekend day, when you can just relax and spend some time enjoying the whole process. I always like to blast some…

Parmesan Herb Crusted Salmon

This recipe was perfect because it was so fast and easy to make, but it adds the perfect amount of fanciness to any meal. The Parmesan herb mixture almost tasted like Italian breadcrumbs, so I will sometimes make this to top off a pasta (or zoodle!) dish and it never disappoints! Ingredients 3 tablespoons of coconut…

No-Bake Breakfast Bites

I make these all the time because they are perfect for a quick grab’n’go breakfast on busy mornings, and they also help settle sweets cravings if you have one or two for an afternoon snack. They are pretty much cookies, but with more protein and less sugar! Ingredients 1 cup of unsweetened shredded coconut 1…

Butter Chicken

It took me moving to Seattle to experience real Indian food. I had previously only been exposed to the restaurant chain frozen-then-reheated junk, but the authentic family-owned Indian restaurants are abundant in these woods. I love it! After experiencing the absolute joy that is Butter Chicken for the first time three years ago, it became a…

Spring Greens & Citrus Salad

I tried this salad reluctantly at one of my favorite restaurants, Duke’s Chowderhouse, and was unsure how I would feel about the unique combination of toppings. I have never been a fruit-in-salad kind of person…until I had this. It may sound like a strange recipe to those of you who, like me, are wary of…

Gluten Free Crepes

Do you ever like to wake up early on a Sunday morning, make yourself a cappuccino, gaze at the sunrise, and pretend you are in Paris? No? Just me? Okay, well I have yet to go to Paris, but I already know I would fit in perfectly. I love macaroons, any kind of cheese, and…

Clam Chowder

It is almost criminal to live in Seattle and not like clam chowder. I love how the warm and flavorful soup makes me feel on a rainy day. I had always expected clam chowder to be difficult to make, so I just went to restaurants whenever I had a craving, which was often. It was…
