This salad is super quick and easy to make and filled with great flavors and veggies. You can even mix up other vegetables in to the salad to make it personal to you. I personally love this salad with spinach and sometimes a bit of kale, especially to add a bit more protein, but you can replace that with lettuce for a more traditional thai salad.
This is yet another warm dish perfect for cold winter nights. The olives and eggplant gives a little Mediterranean spin on this recipe and makes it absolutely scrumptious. You can prepare and serve them in mini french ovens for a cleaner and easier presentation.
It’s almost the New Year and as most other do to celebrate that mean lots of guests and lots of food. Most of the time instead of doing dinner I simply like to make appetizers or snack food for my guests to enjoy. Here are 3 quick and easy healthy recipes to make all of your guests happy.
It can be hard to cook for a large group for the holidays while also staying healthy and not missing out on the flavor.

As a substitute for ground meat, this recipe uses polenta to give it that similar texture. The recipe in general is quite hearty with bit of a spice. It is a perfect recipe for those cold, windy winter nights. It doesn’t take tremendously long to cook, making it a great choice for a middle of the week recipe for dinner.

These oat bars make a great snack to refuel and reenergize your body. They are super easy and quick to make while also being absolutely delicious. You can substitute your favorite ingredients into them easily to make them fit your tastes.
With the amount of food consumed on Thanksgiving you may want something light for breakfast the next morning, especially with a house full of guests. How about making some smoothies and muffins for everyone? The muffins can be made a head of time and stored in the refrigerator or freezer until needed. This allows you to sleep in and not need to dirty up anymore dishes post Thanksgiving. Making up a few light and refreshing smoothies can make a great treat for anyone to enjoy.
I was craving a veggie burger and decided instead of going to one of my favorite burger spots I would attempt to make some myself. This recipe was so easy to make and also so delicious. The patty, unlike many veggie burgers I’ve made, actually stuck together very well. I tossed together a simple spinach salad for a nice side with some homemade balsamic vinaigrette.
Corn cakes, or as my grandmother would call it “mush,” are a great way to have a quick hearty meal on a cold night. The spices in the beans are just enough to bring out a bit more flavor to the dish. The mush was also super easy to make and can even be saved for lunches or dinners later in the week.
