Spicy Roasted Red Pepper Soup

Spicy Roasted Red Pepper Soup

Living in NYC, you tend to become what one would call a "food snob." Rightfully so, the restaurants in this city are amazing. Hence why I need to balance them with a clean eating blog… ;) However, my mind was blown with how good the food was on my honeymoon. If you are thinking about traveling to St. Martin or Anguilla, do it. Forget how amazing the beaches are and order yourself tuna tartar for every meal of every day. The inspiration for this Spicy Roasted Red ...

Roasted Brussels Sprouts with a Balsamic Soy Glaze

Roasted Brussels Sprouts with a Balsamic Soy Glaze

Thank you all for the sweet wedding wishes :) It was truly the best day of my life. I hope everyone else had a great holiday! Starting off the New Year with a 10 day vacation is something I could get used to :)  But I'll be honest, I've been having a hard time getting back into my super healthy ways. I'm not eating terribly, but there's been a lot of Starbucks lattes in my hand and delivery men at my door. I blame it on cold and the fact that I haven't had time to grocery shop ...

Warm Kale and Millet Salad

So my sister is on her honeymoon right now, sipping cocktails on a beach in Anguilla, and I am stuck here in New York.. freezing. Since it's clearly too cold for me to walk 2 blocks to the grocery store… I've either been making some poor delivery guy ride his bike to my apartment, or I've been cooking with what I have. One of my concoctions turned out to be this delicious Warm Kale and Millet Salad. Super simple, yet filling and comforting. Although quinoa is often my go-to, I love ...

Butternut Squash, Kale and Black Bean Quesadillas

Butternut Squash, Kale and Black Bean Quesadillas

Happy New Year Everyone! My happily married sister is off on her honeymoon, sitting on the beach with her new hubby and a cocktail in hand. Therefore, I will be holding down the blog for the next few weeks. Somehow this doesn't seem fair... ;)  I know you're all dying to hear about the wedding! It was absolutely perfect. Everything went flawlessly. I nailed my speech, Maria glowed and looked more stunning than ever, and New Years Eve just made the entire night that ...

Quinoa Fajita Stuffed Peppers

I'm getting married today! Ah! :) So what does one eat the week or so before their wedding? Originally I was like, "I mean, I'm obviously just not going to eat a lot like Kate Moss and be super skinny…" That lasted for about three hours until I was hungry.  Of course not eating is never the answer. So what I've been focusing on is eating (and drinking) things that are low in calories, high in vegan protein, and easy to digest. My go-to snacks have been veggies or brown rice ...

Gluten Free Almond Butter Kiss Cookies

10821832_10102328055849301_1251342513_o

 Who doesn't love the peanut butter cookies rolled in sugar with the Hershey kiss stuck in the middle? This has always been my personal favorite Christmas cookie. That being said, I was hesitant to even try to make it healthier. But then what would the point of my blog be? :) I have to say, I'm surprisingly shocked at how good these cookies came out! They are flourless and contain no refined sugar. I swapped peanut butter for almond butter and refined white sugar for low-glycemic ...

Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

We only have one other bread on this blog, and it's our top recipe! This past fall, our Gluten Free Pumpkin Bread was at the top of Google with recipes from Betty Crocker and Martha Stewart. Not that I'm saying we're the next Martha Stewart… :) We took a lot of time with this recipe to make sure it was just as delicious as our pumpkin bread. This Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Banana Bread is moist and sweet, yet contains no refined sugar or butter! We used chocolate chips by Sunspire, ...

Creamy Balsamic Mushroom Soup

10859324_10102317579284421_2141227429_n-1

If there is one thing I know how to make, it's a super healthy, creamy vegan soup :) I first got into the whole pureed soup thing around 3 years ago when I did my first Clean Program cleanse. I needed to have a liquid dinner, and was getting really sick of smoothies. I tried their Chipotle Black Bean Bisque, and it seriously changed my life…  Ok, so maybe not my life. But it was freaking amazing, and definitely changed my view on soups in general. After that I started ...

Chocolate Coconut Date Balls

Chocolate Coconut Date Balls

December has got to be the hardest month to stay healthy. No matter what holiday you celebrate, cookies are freaking everywhere! Then there's holiday candy, holiday martinis, and holiday flavored lattes at Starbucks that magically end up in my hand after I swore I ordered a green tea…  I'm not saying I won't be eating any Christmas cookies this month. It's definitely happening. However, to avoid gaining the holiday "bulk" this season I'm going to make sure I have healthy desserts ...
