Lazy Leftover Soup

One of the most frustrating parts about healthy eating can be healthy cooking: constantly feeling like you need to reinvent the wheel with every single meal. I’m constantly helping nutrition clients repurpose their leftovers and reuse ingredients in a way that allows for a diversity of meals (meal prepping and eating the same thing every day can get oh so boring–see here) and nutritional variety (aka getting different nutrients from different foods).   My boyfriend and usually roast a whole chicken or buy an organic rotisserie chicken to eat throughout…read more

Feeding Positivity

After last week you know how to feed your heart so you can, in turn, feed your love and happiness. Similar to the heart, feeding positivity doesn’t necessarily mean just the organ itself (last week the heart, this week the brain) but it also means nutrition and holistic practices that will make you feel great. Let’s take a deeper look:   How can food help with positivity and happiness? Food isn’t just fuel for our bodies to exist: there are healing properties in every whole food. Food is information for…read more

Sorta Stuffed Kabocha Squash

Though the weather is starting to look like spring in LA, I’m still holding onto my winter love for hearty, warm dinners. Squash has always really done it for me, so this recipe stars one of my favorites: kabocha squash. It’s also known as Japanese pumpkin because, well, it looks like one.   Here’s what you need:   ½ kabocha squash 1/2 onion sliced 1 portabella mushroom sliced 1/2 zucchini sliced 2 spicy Italian chicken sausages marinara sauce to coat garlic powder parsley S + P   {Makes 2 servings.}…read more

Spicy Lime Avocado Fries

Who doesn’t like fries? Who doesn’t like avocados? The perfect marriage of the two is right here: avocado fries. These are dope because they’re crispy yet smooth, crunchy yet creamy. Not to mention easy. Make some to pair with chili, soup or a lettuce-wrapped burger sitch. And, maybe the best hack with these, you can have the healthy avocado but ditch the chips. Plenty of crunch here already. Here’s how to make it: 1 (not quite ripe) avocado brown rice or coconut flour 2 eggs, beaten  gluten free japanese style…read more

Chicken Veggie Stir Fry with Spicy Coconut Ginger Sauce

Coconuts are, like, so in right now. (Haha.) But seriously, there’s good reason why they’re so popular. Packed with healthy fats and boasting of antibacterial, antimicrobial and antifungal properties, they’re a versatile, nutritional powerhouse.   I’ve always leaned toward coconut in the sweet breakfast or dessert realm, but venturing into the savory coconut world has been eye-opening and so delicious. This most recent recipe could be a super basic stir fry, but the savory coconut sauce is what makes it clean-plate-club worthy.   As with any stir fry, play with…read more

Watermelon Jalapeño Gazpacho

Summertime and soup don’t really go hand in hand, except for when it’s gazpacho. Gazpacho, or a chilled soup, is perfect for when it’s hot as b*lls and you need to cool down. But just because you’re slurping down a chilled soup doesn’t mean it should be devoid of flavor or nutrients.  My answer: Watermelon Jalapeño Gazpacho. Full of healthy foods and a mouthful of spicy sass.   Because of the super yin nature of gazpacho, the yang jalapeno is welcomed and not overwhelming. Another bonus, you don’t have to cook…read more

Summer Salmon Bowl

Even though I could eat fish every day, fish and summer eats go hand-in-hand. I love this recipe because it’s incredibly balanced, satisfying and energizing. It’s also simple, since some of the ingredient prep is made easier thanks to the grocery store’s prep. (Thanks, guys!)   Salmon is one of my top feel-good foods, and I love when the sweet fish gets a little spicy. Plus, anything in a bowl just makes life easy.     Here’s how to make two bowls. (Because sharing is caring.)   2 cajun seasoned…read more
