Roasted Cauliflower Kale Salad with Dried Cherries, Walnuts, and Feta

Roasted Cauliflower Kale Salad with Dried Cherries, Walnuts, and Feta
I NEED to add roasted veggies to my salads more often. This was SO delicious. First of all, any deeply roasted veggie is my best friend. And then added to a salad?! My new favorite thing. I’m one of those weirdos that loves salads and craves veggies more than anything. It’s true. The combo of flavors in here is insane. #nosadsalads.

Avocado Toast with Beet Noodles, Garlic Swiss Chard, Bacon, and Feta

Avocado Toast with Beet Noodles, Garlic Swiss Chard, Bacon, and Feta
You can never have too many versions of avocado toast. As someone who eats it ALL the time, I’m talking breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack…it never gets old. I’m usually an avocado toast purist. Grainy, crusty bread, buttery smashed avo, a little sea salt, and that’s it. And almost always a runny egg or egg whites, depending on my mood. Sometimes saut√©ed spinach or veggies too. I don’t discriminate! It’s all delicious.

Honey Citrus Chicken, Blood Orange, and Avocado Chopped Salad

Honey Citrus Chicken, Blood Orange, and Avocado Chopped Salad
This salad will brighten the dreariest of winter days. It’s this time of year that I start craving more fresh, summery foods. I can just sense the days getting a litttttle bit longer, and having the sun rise a little earlier has been wonderful. I also can’t stop with the blood oranges. They’re so stunning, obviously, but their flavor is out of this world. They’re not as “orangey” as a typical navel orange..almost more fruit punchy? Or something? Don’t quote me on that. If you haven’t had them, you’re missing out.

Salmon with Warm Shallot Tomato Basil Salsa
I’m always looking for new ways to prepare salmon. It’s one of my favorite things to make for a healthy dinner during the week. In these winter months where it’s too freezing cold to grill, I don’t always feel like having the same ol’ broiled or pan fried salmon. Also, this warm tomato salsa is SO delicious and I want to put it on EVERYTHING.

Greek Yogurt Caesar Pesto Pasta Salad with Grilled Chicken and Arugula

Greek Yogurt Caesar Pesto Pasta Salad with Grilled Chicken and Arugula
Today’s recipe is all about simple and classic. Who doesn’t love pasta salad? Such a nostalgic favorite. Makes me think of summertime and cookouts and beautiful weather. All things I could totally go for right now. Plus, I used chickpea pasta! Which I’m obsessed with lately. If you’ve never had it, it’s made from chickpeas (obviously) and its a lot higher in protein and fiber, and lower in carbs than regular pasta. Love it!

Crispy Brussels and Shallot One Pot Pasta

Crispy Brussels and Shallot One Pot Pasta
Is it possible to overdose on brussels? I think I have this winter. I can’t even tell you how obsessed I’ve been with them. I put them in my egg scrambles for breakfast, in veggie bowls for lunch, shredded in salads, roasted in the oven with bacon, in pasta, roasted and dipped in hummus for a snack..you get the picture. This pasta is filled with my favorite way to consume brussels. Roasted and crispy. I also added some thinly sliced shallot, and the outcome was DELISH.

I totally go through phases with chicken. I eat it pretty often. Almost too often..to a point where I get sick of it. Like everyone, I’m sure. Sometimes I want chicken several times a week, and others none. I eat it on salads for lunch, for quick dinners, and basically added to any dish for an easy, versatile¬†protein. This recipe is perfect for those times when you’re sick of chicken, but still want something healthy and flavorful! Or, it could be a last minute holiday dinner. Festive colors, too!
