Herbed Lentil and Quinoa Salad

Herbed lentil and quinoa salad in jars

This week, we’re back with another jar salad, this time with a lentil and quinoa variation. I say this is a quinoa salad, but technically, nothing in this dish couldn’t be (re)heated…and I can vouch for the fact that it tastes just as good warm as it does cold. If you like to meal prep […]

Zoodle and Chickpea Salad with Curried Yogurt

This post contains affiliate links. Learn more.  I’ve been into Mason jar salads this year. Mainly because I made the investment into a dozen quart-sized jars. (Well, eleven. I broke one. They are glass, after all; that’s a real hazard. They are durable, but not indestructible.) But there are only so many weeks in a row […]

Spinach & Artichoke Avocado Dip

Spinach Artichoke Avocado Dip

I’m really excited to share this recipe for spinach & artichoke dip. First of all it’s delicious, and definitely scratches the itch for a cheese-y, gooey, salty snack. Secondly, it’s only got three ounces of cheese, which means it’s mostly vegetables, which means it’s basically a salad, right? Well, ok, maybe not. But it does […]

Black Bean and Sweet Potato Stew

black bean and sweet potato stew

You know how they say necessity is the mother of invention? Something like that is responsible for this black bean and sweet potato stew. I had a really specific idea of what I wanted this dish to be–warm, spicy with a touch of sweetness, comforting, hearty. I wanted the beans to be cooked down and […]

Date Salted Caramel Hot Cocoa

Ok, ok. I hear what you’re thinking. “Date…salted caramel…almond milk…hot cocoa… Hey wait a sec, what are you tryina pull here?” That’s right…it’s “healthy” hot cocoa. I really don’t like applying the word “healthy” to food. People are healthy. Food helps us be that way…along with exercise, sleep, genetics, environment and a bunch of other factors. […]
