Pasta Primavera (Fresh Veggie Pasta)

Mom life has really put a halt on my cooking time, not that I’m complaining. We have resorted to eating Subway a few too many times now, and I finally decided I needed to do some meal prepping so we didn’t feel the need to run to Subway (or worse options) every time we get …

Roasted Chickpeas, Broccoli, and Quinoa Buddha Bowl

39 weeks we’re at already. Seems like just yesterday, we found out we were going to be having a baby and here we are, waiting for it to happen any day. We had an appointment on Thursday, and it sounds like she’s dropped even more. Sounds like she doesn’t think it’ll be too much longer, …

Meal Prep 3/3

It’s been a rough few days. A couple sick days, a false labor scare, and not sleeping well do a number on trying to maintain a healthy lifestyle. That being said I have been trying to make the right decisions about eating well. So far so good – got a few dishes prepped yesterday even …

I can’t go more than 20-30 minutes without eating in the morning now without getting sick to my stomach. When baby wants food, she wins. One of my go-to breakfasts to pack in some …

Chana Palak

Every time I go to the Indian buffet there is a version of palak or saag which are a spinach or other leafy green dish. They usually contain something else including chickpeas or paneer, which is a blocked cheese. It’s my father-in-law’s favorite dish and something I always steer clear of. That being said, I …

‘Chorizo’ Sweet Potato and Black Bean Tacos

Been a tough week. Our flight to visit my in-laws got cancelled due to a major winter storm, I’ve had THE worst heartburn all week thanks to our growing little one, and it’s been so bitter cold here, it’s enough to burn a person out. That being said, a little heat from some vegetarian ‘chorizo’ …

Easy Teriyaki Vegetable Stir Fry

There are those nights where you get home from work and want dinner quick. It’s not often we haven’t prepared ahead of time, but this was one of those instances. Luckily we’re prepared for these situations – most recently we purchased a giant bag of stir fry frozen vegetables from Costco. I’d normally cut my …
