Toss n' Go Greek-ish Salad

Toss n' Go Greek-ish Salad

Why is this salad "Greek-ish"? Well, when you hear "Greek salad", you think of a pile of lettuce with a whole bunch of olives, onions, tomatoes, feta cheese, chicken and a delightful zingy Greek vinaigrette. This is that...but less. (I'm really good at promoting my goods, aren't I?)

Zucchini Lasagna

Zucchini Lasagna

I just love a prideful Italian...it doesn't matter if you're first gen or if your father's mother's second cousin lived in Italy for one summer "back in the day" - any connection to Italy means that you've, at some point or another, bragged to someone (who, let's be clear, probably wasn't impressed) that your bloodstream is largely comprised of tomato sauce and pecorino. I'll unapologetically lump myself into the crowd who loves claiming the Italian heritage.

Crispy Shaved Brussels Sprouts & Bacon

Crispy Shaved Brussels Sprouts & Bacon

Ahhh b-sprouts and bacon. Possibly the best culinary combination since baked sweet potatoes and almond butter............no? I'm alone on the SP/AB front? Whatever, you guys are missing out. 

Thick Cut Fries

Thick Cut Fries

But actually...perfection. How many oven baked fry recipes do you see out there on the blogosphere claiming to be the best? Those fry phonies can shove it, because the constantly regurgitated method of "tossing your fries in oil and baking at a high temp until charred" is old news.

Magic Bars

Happy Valentines Day, you filthy animals! I neither know nor care about what your plans are on this Hallmark holiday, but I'm hoping it at least entails sugar. Who's to say you can't ogle your blue eyed honey (or dog) AND a tasty treat on this polarizing day? Some of you reading this might LIVE for the V-Day cheese, while others might prefer taking temporary residency in stretchy pants watching some below average Josh Duhamel flick through the bottom of a bottle of vodka.

Creamy Cashew Milk

Creamy Cashew Milk

Almond milk is a staple in most "clean"/"paleo"/"real food" (etc.) kitchens. And for good reason - it's delightful! That said, I think that almonds hog the lime light a little bit. Just like with almonds, you can make dairy-free milks from essentially any nut. I do love my homemade almond milk recipe, but I'm not always in the mood to whip out my nut milk bag (wow, the inappropriate interpretations of that phrase are never ending).

Cardamom Apricot Granola Bars

Cardamom Apricot Granola Bars

Yes, I enjoy gluten free oats and no, they're not paleo. My body tolerates them just fine, and I find them to be a great carb source on heavy training days when I really need to replenish my glycogen tank. With that, Whole 30'ers, avert your eyes, because these homemade granola bars are giving me LIFE right now. Holy shiznit they are so freaking tasty. 

Slow Cooker Lentil Sweet Potato Stew

Slow Cooker Lentil Sweet Potato Stew

Are you tired of soup, chili and stew recipes? Probably not...because its colder than a witch's naughty bits and everyone loves a heart warming bowl of soup.
