Asian Chicken Salad

Like I always do on Sunday, I make a bunch of food. I batch cook so that I’m not stuck trying to cook while simultaneously entertaining my son. Because frankly, I’m not that entertaining. I’m out after a couple rounds of peek-a-boo, and he’s over it before I am. Sometimes I feel like he’s already a teenager, he’s a master of the side-eye. So this past Sunday I made a bunch of chicken for lettuce wraps. I love me some lettuce wraps. My love affair with them started at PF Chang’s when I was 15. I’ve been a fiend ever since. I still love PF Chang’s, even though they use super questionable ingredients and maybe hurt my stomach a lot. Anyway, because I already made the chicken, this salad came together in under ten minutes. Seriously – batch cook on the weekends! It will save you so much time and…

Paleo Greek Tuna Salad

Every Sunday I make a big batch of food for my husband to take to work. I often make this tuna salad because it keeps well and is crazy easy to make. You can really add whatever you like, but I like to give it some Greek flavors. Because I’m obsessed with Greece. And Greek food. And Greek herbs and spices.

Greek Shrimp Salad

Each week I make a big batch of food for Scott’s lunches. It makes my life easier and ensures that he’s not going to Chipotle every single day. Don’t get me wrong, I love Chipotle and it isn’t unhealthy, but it’s definitely cheaper to bring food from home. I mixed this up in a big bowl and portioned it out for individual lunches. It tastes great and is super healthy. Try it! Paleo Greek Shrimp Salad This Chipotle Copycat Healthy Greek Shrimp Salad Recipe is the healthiest meal prep lunch salad ever!

Greek Cauliflower Salad

I always think those Greek salads made with orzo or quinoa look really good. The problem is that I don’t eat orzo or quinoa. I could make this with rice, as I do eat white rice. But now that Trader Joe’s sells organic riced cauliflower, I’m basically obsessed. I bought six bags last week. It’s just me and my husband. I don’t need six bags of riced cauliflower. But I was worried they’d sell out soon – which they did. I’m completely in love with the riced cauliflower. It so easy and incredibly healthy. While I didn’t make this meal specifically as a low carb option, it is a great low carb salad. Plus the cauliflower is way healthier than quinoa, orzo or rice. Greek Cauliflower Rice Salad Greek Cauliflower Salad! A delicious alternative to the rice filled versions! I’m completely in love with the riced cauliflower. It so easy…

Paleo Tuna Salad

Scott loves tuna salad. With extra mayo. In fact I made a bunch of this earlier this week and he ate it on the way to work this morning. He likes to go to Whole Foods and buy it, and I think like a lot of people, he assumes that just because it’s from Whole Foods – it’s healthy. It isn’t. Store bought tuna salad is still full of rancid vegetable oils, GMOs, preservatives and sketchy ingredients. Making your own is cheaper and infinitely healthier. And in my opinion (aka the correct opinion), my recipe for paleo tuna salad taste better. Paleo Tuna Salad Making your own tuna salad is cheaper and infinitely healthier. And in my opinion (aka the correct opinion), my recipe for paleo tuna salad tastes better. 12 oz tuna1 cup homemade mayo (see notes)1/3 red onion (diced)2 celery stalks (diced)salt and peppa Combine everything until…

Ten Minute Greek Salad

Originally, Scott and I wanted to go to Greece for our honeymoon. But after weighing the pros and cons (read: the million hour flight to get there and both of us needing to get back to work) we decided to stay a bit more local to the US. Don’t get me wrong, our honeymoon was ridiculously amazing, but I’m hoping we can still get to Greece someday. The food, the people, the architecture, the beautiful beaches and especially all that delicious food, really draws me to Greece. I especially love that they have such amazing food that is still healthy. Fresh seafood and veggies, delicious local cheeses, amazing wines and everything is cooked in Greek olive oil. I can’t wait to get there someday. In the meantime, I’ll have to settle for making Greek recipes. I came across some real Greek feta, from Greece, with Greek writing on it and…

Paleo Bacon, Arugula and Tomato Risotto

BLT risotto! Sometimes I’m pretty sure I’m a culinary genius. Now is one of those times. This was so, so good and I made a ton of it to eat throughout the week. It works really well as a side dish or you can grill up some chicken or steak, slice it and serve overtop of this. I love me some risotto and the cauliflower works really well in place of rice.

Detox Salad

To be truthful, before I made this salad I thought there was a good chance it would taste like sh*t. Detox salad? It even sounds like it tastes bad. Detoxes aren’t fun, they don’t taste good, and more often than not they’re boring as f*ck. And let’s review the major ingredients: broccoli cabbage cauliflower It’s basically a small child’s nightmare. But, I was determined to make it taste good. Don’t get me wrong, I love cauliflower, broccoli, and cabbage. But I usually cook them individually, with a lot of butter. If you’re wondering why I would even attempt to make a raw broccoli, cabbage, and cauliflower salad taste good, or make a detox salad in the first place, it’s because I’m trying to eat more cruciferous veggies. They’re packed with nutrients and you guessed it – they help you detox. And promotes, you know, regularity. As a health coach, I…

Spinach, Apple, Blue Cheese & Turkey Salad

This was one of the things I made with the approximate 7,475 pounds of leftover turkey I have from Thanksgiving. It was simple, crisp, healthy and tasted really good. What more do you need in a salad? I’m honestly usually not the biggest fan of salads. I’m not the best at making them. I like when you go to a restaurant and the salads are huge with all these cool ingredients and topped with a tasty protein. I know most people shy away from salads because they’re boring and don’t taste that interesting, but this has all ya need. Greens, sweetness from the apple, creaminess from the cheese, crunchiness from the walnuts and all topped with turkey (protein) and olive oil (fat) to keep you full. Check out the recipe: Spinach, Apple, Blue Cheese & Turkey Salad This easy and healthy salad is a great way to use up leftover…
