Today was very green. Breakfast was a kale smoothie, lunch was avocado toast, and dinner was salsa verde. It rocked and it was healthy. Avocado toast has been one of my favorite foods since birth. I came into this world eating avocado, it is in my DNA. Avocado toast with a little lime, sea salt and a few chili flakes is really truly magical – it’s up there with grilled cheese for me. Anyways I know it is simple but I love it SO much I had to shout it from the rooftops by sharing with you. Enjoy!
Salsa is a staple in my life, especially when I am trying to live a healthier manner. Salsa is good to me even when I am in the mindset of eating whatever the heck I want, so I eat it while I’m being healthy and I don’t feel deprived! The amazing thing about salsa is that it is guiltless and makes everything THAT much better. If I am eating vegetables, you better believe I douse it in salsa. Pretty much everything is an opportunity for me to eat salsa! I have always been a red salsa girl; the tomato, cilantro, onion, jalapeño, and lime combo is my go-to jam. Today I wanted to switch it up and get out of my usual comfort routine, so I bought every green chili I could find in the grocery store. The results were stellar and just absolutely beyond mouth watering, and – guess what – SO healthy! Since I am on a health train extreme, I home made cashew cheese, and let me tell you SUPER good! I used fresh corn tortillas, cashew cheese, and this green salsa, and it was to good to be true! Vegan and gluten free! If you are interested in getting the cashew cheese recipe, let me know in a comment!
I love eating salads but they quickly loose their appeal. I can only handle mixed greens and balsamic vinaigrette so many days in a row before I loose my mind. I recently discovered that making your own dressing is so easy and far more satisfying! When you eat a salad, it’s to be healthy, but often dressing is filled with so many mystery ingredients and calories, and you are ultimately doing your body a disservice. Another bummer about salads is that they are often so bland, lacking any kick that leaves you craving more. This dressing has that kick and creaminess that makes you totally feel like you are indulging! Whenever I eat this salad I feel like I am being bad but really I am being oh so good! Not only is the dressing amazing, but this salad is packed with nutrition! The kale adds another kick in itself because of the slight spice kale has. Added with a little crunch from cabbage and sweet peppers – and of course some feta – this is the end-all-be-all of salads! Enjoy.
Hummus is SO good, healthy and ridiculously easy to make. I particularly like making hummus because you can use pretty much any extra ingredients that spark your fancy. This means its easy to toss together with whatever you have in the fridge and impress your guests or just devour it all alone.
I love spice and I love feta. Luckily I had jalapenos and feta on hand. This hummus is really stinking tasty. I mean really really tasty. It was stupid easy to make and to boot it is healthy. This is a win win situation.
