Green’s Sweet and Spicy Kale Salad

I discovered Green Vegetarian Cuisine in San Antonio just a few weeks ago and I wish I knew about it earlier.  It is the only vegetarian and kosher restaurant in the area.  A lot of their food options are clean, high in fiber, high in protein and with loads of veggies.  I love it.  Not only is their food healthy, but they are eco-friendly with their energy efficient building, recycling bins and biodegradable packaging.  I highly recommend making a stop here!  Here are my favorites:

Skinny Banana Bread w/ Chia Seed

I have my new banana bread recipe from here on out.  I am a sucker for banana bread, but I know it is usually made with a lot of butter and a lot of sugar.  This one I made has:

  • No butter (used applesauce and coconut oil)
  • No white sugar (used agave nectar)
  • Chia seeds
  • and is whole wheat

And this is why I have named this… "Skinny" Banana Bread!

Mayo-less Broccoli Cashew Salad and Spinach Dip

As promised, I have include the Broccoli Cashew Salad and Spinach Dip recipes that accompanied my Easter Ham! I love these dishes, but the typical mayo version has more fat than my liking.  I substituted the mayo with Fage Greek yogurt and I promise, you couldn't tell the difference.

Indian-Spiced Butternut Squash Lentils

Indian Spices

Another week of travel called for another crock-pot adventure.  This only took about 30 minutes to throw together, and it was done by the end of the day and ready to be packed for the road!

This lentil-y, fiber-filled, veggie filled, spice-infused stew has been hearty and completely satisfying this week.   I got the original recipe from Our Best Bites but made a few alterations; one of them was to add more veggies.  I added some peas and butternut squash!

I have discovered the most amazing milkshake ever.  Absolutely DEE-licious.  I made it on Thursday, Friday, Saturday AND Sunday.  I would have probably continued to make it every day if I didn't have to leave town for work.

Valentine’s Dinner for Two: Part 1

Need an idea for a delicious, light meal for Valentine's Day?  Going out can be such a pain on this day because of the reservations, the wait, the traffic, increased prices, and dealing with all the other people who are also trying to have a nice date.  I would much rather be in my comfortable apartment, enjoying our non-marked up wine, and cooking with my significant other.

My friend Ani and I thought it would be fun to to make a sample Valentine's Day dinner for two.  For those of you who want to stay in but haven't decided what to make, here you go!  Our rotic dinner consisted of a Crimson Beet Salad, Stuffed Mushrooms and Chocolate Angel Food cake.
