Collard Wrap Sammies

Collard Wrap Sammies

These are my low carb sandwich saving grace. On a training day, I'm all about filling a couple slices of the good stuff with meats and cheeses and spreads (Ezekiel's sesame and cinnamon raisin loaves are my jam); but on a non-training/recovery day, I usually scale down the carbs in favor of fueling up on yummy fats. 

Lemon Feta Butternut Squash Salad

Lemon Feta Butternut Squash Salad

Won't lie - this one isn't completely original. One of my gal pal's used to make it all the time when she lived in Charlotte and it became a total obsession of mine. This rendition features feta and kale, but it's also delicious with blue cheese (assuming you're into the moldy cheese biz) and spinach. 

Twice Baked Buffalo Chicken Sweet Potato

Twice Baked Buffalo Chicken Sweet Potato

The easiest way to "bake" a potato (sweet or white) is actually not in the oven. Rather, it's in the lazy chef's favorite appliance...the slow cooker. I mean, it's not like baking a potato in the oven is all that taxing of a project...but I basically just look for any excuse I can to use my slow cooker and the consistency comes out perfectly every single time. According to Pinterest, all you need to be a great cook is a slow cooker. I whole heartedly support and abide by this rule

Buffalo Chicken Flatbread

Buffalo Chicken Flatbread

If you're presently on the Whole 30, 21 DSD, 28 to LIFE or any other elimination cleanse (lookin' at you, sis)...avert your eyes.This is definitely an indulgent recipe...but WOW is it good. Crispy flatbread under shredded chicken, buffalo sauce, ranch and sharp cheddar is just an unreal combination. This recipe is perfect for a night where you just want to kick your feet up, have a glass of wine and be a lil' naughty. Beware, there will be several buffalo chicken themed recipes in the coming months because it's my current flavor obsession.

Pizza Zucchini Boats

Pizza Zucchini Boats

The ginormous zucchini are best for making boats, as suggested by my wise mother - so first tip is to go for the larger than average zuke here. This recipe is a hearty and healthy way to get your pizza on, so you're welcome. Out of lack of creativity and a severe case of writer's block...I'm just going to go ahead and get right to the recipe.
