Healthy Chicken BBQ Flatbread

Ahh, pizza. It seems like every time I’m driving home from work, I either a) seem to notice every pizza place I pass, or b) am personally passed by a pizza delivery motorcycle. Pizza is everywhere. Its perfectly photogenic pepperoni is plastered onto billboards, its scent wafts under my bedroom door as my brother sticks one…

Multigrain Curry-Crab Sandwich Rolls

Ahh, seafood. After a whole week in this gorgeous spot… … it’s all I could think of. So when I set about the task of making dinner, I drew from my recent island inspiration to come up with something different. Also contributing to this recipe idea was the fact that while we were in Aruba, we pretty…

Tangy Black Bean & Ham Soup

Today was seventy four degrees out – one of the warmer Spring days we’ve had so far – but rather than make some sort of cool, seasonal dinner, can you guess what I made? Soup. Warm, delicious, and as my mom perfectly put it, tangy soup. And despite its seasonal inappropriateness, I relished shamelessly in its warmth. You…

Low Carb Egg White, Arugula, & Turkey Wrap

You may be noticing a recurring theme in all my pictures; the black granite backdrop with some healthy food on top, usually within the green-white-orange color spectrum. Don’t worry, though – I’m currently on a plane toward a destination that is sure to shake up my photographic repertoire.Can you guess where I’m headed? I’lll give you…

Fresh Bell Pepper Salad w/ Parsley & Feta

Whenever I serve something, I need to serve a side with it. Even if the main dish has enough of all the essential food groups, I feel like presentation-wise, my plate isn’t complete without something else on it. So when I made these chimichanga hot pockets the other day for my parents, I needed something…

Healthy Mexican Hot Pockets (Chimichangas!)

When I was twelve, I. Ate. Everything. Breakfast consisted of two waffles lathered in peanut butter and drenched in syrup, usually accompanied by a tall glass of whole milk. Lunch was almost always two re-fried bean & cheese quesadillas (courtesy of my Mexican childhood). Dinner was two to three massive helpings of whatever creamy pasta…

Sweet Potato & Black Bean Veggie Burgers w/ Curry-Lime Coleslaw

Sweet potatoes. Black beans. Curry. Lime. What do these have in common? The answer: not much. I fell in love with sweet potatoes in Peru, black beans and lime in Mexico, and curry in Austria (huh?). What they do have in common, though, is their culinary versatility and their nutritious dexterity. I cook with sweet potatoes all the time. They’re…

Lighter Blueberry Baked Oatmeal w/ Steel Cut Oats

I’m currently in an extreme oatmeal phase. Every night for the past few weeks upon returning from the gym, I prep some overnight oats for the next morning. And while those cute little mason jar breakfasts are great, spending the time making them every night can get tiring. Not ready to give up my oatmeal addiction but…
