Meal Plan / Week 30 October 2019

This week began and ended with muffins – Pumpkin Spice to kick off the week, and Pear Blackberry to end it! Both were amazing and I strongly recommend you give them a try. We also enjoyed large dinner salads, one vegan and the other topped with poached chicken. I also […]

 

Pear Blackberry Muffins

The batter recipe from “Run Fast. Cook Fast. Eat Slow.” is so versatile; after using it for the Pumpkin Spice Muffins, I decided to use it as a base for a new variety that leveraged pears, another wonderful fall fruit. I had a vision in my mind of how wonderful […]

 

Turmeric Fish Curry

The best thing about this recipe is that it produces more curry sauce than you need for dinner; save the leftovers and serve for lunch the next day with a fried egg and a scoop of rice. The recipe for turmeric coconut curry sauce comes from “Run Fast. Cook Fast. […]

 

Whipped Avocado Salad

I dreamt up this bright Whipped Avocado Salad on our flight home from Paris. It’s filling enough to serve as a weeknight family dinner – you can add grilled chicken breast or a warm soft-boiled egg if you’re looking for something a little heartier, but it’s not necessary.  

 

Pumpkin Spice Muffins

It’s October, and that means Pumpkin Spice everything! I was craving something sweet and spicy, and did a little happy dance when I saw a recipe for Pumpkin Spice Superhero Muffins in my favorite cookbook “Run Fast. Cook Fast. Eat Slow“. I made a few changes to keep these yummy […]

 

Meal Plan / Week 29 October 2019

We returned home from our once-in-a-lifetime 10 day vacation to France late in the week. We spent time in Paris and a small town a few hours southeast, walking an average of 9 miles per day. We ate nearly as much as we walked, including baguettes and other foods I […]

 

Vegan Enchiladas with Cashew Cheese Sauce

This recipe comes from “The Dairy-Free Kitchen” by Ashley Adams, a cookbook I adore because it reintroduced a whole lotta creamy, yummy favorites back into my diet (vegan cashew sour creme, maple walnut scones, and salmon in almond cream sauce, I’m talking ’bout you!) It’s really two recipes in one, […]

 

Savory Paleo Vegetable Quiche

We served this easy quiche for dinner alongside a fresh salad, but you could just as easily serve it for breakfast or lunch. You can change it up by mixing and matching any veggies that you have on hand – asparagus instead of broccoli, for example. We adapted this recipe […]

 

Mango Bread

This bread is light and ever-so-slightly sweet from the natural flavor of ripe mangoes. All you really need is a blender and a loaf plan to make this dairy-free and wheat-free bread. It’s simple and perfect when paired with a cup of steaming hot black coffee. Enjoy!
