One of the first foods I changed when I started on this journey was replacing my milk with almond milk. Slowly but surely, I switched to the unsweetened almond milk, and now, I’m fully granola and make my own nut milk each week. A friend of mine asked me about it and said she had no idea how to do it! It’s super easy and trust me, it tastes probably 163x (give or take a couple times) better than what you get in the grocery store, plus! you know all the ingredients in it!
It’s my goal every year to get something green past my roommate’s lips. We joke about how picky an eater she is, and so I’ve made it my mission to get some healthy stuff in her every once in awhile. A couple years ago, I hooked her with avocados and pistachios, and last year, I even got her to try brussel sprouts! As this year is getting closer and closer to over, I was searching for a creative way to get her to eat something green. Thanks to my CSA share, I had a huge bag of spinach and some squash. After some Pinterest searching, I found the perfect way to get her to eat something green without having to chew it. Of course, I can’t take complete credit for the recipe, as it’s yet another one I’ve adapted from one I’ve found online. Thanks to Karina at cafedelites.com for the base recipe.
One of the best things about getting the CSA is that you get to be creative with the veggies you get. Last week, I got three small eggplants and I had no idea what to do with them. One week, when I only got one, I made a Chinese dish, 地三鲜, which is delicious, but I didn’t feel like making a whole Chinese meal again. So I did some Internet searching, and came across a recipe for quinoa stuffed eggplant. SOLD. Continue reading “Mediterranean Stuffed Eggplant (Gluten Free)”
It’s finally my favorite time of the year!! Well, almost. The weather is cooling down (a little) and fall fruits and veggies are ripening. To celebrate fall coming, I went apple picking last weekend! I had only been apple picking once before, in college, and when I went before, I came home with probably 20 pounds of apples. I was making apple bread, apple crisp, and just eating them straight for a couple weeks. Continue reading “Apple Cake (Grain and Gluten Free!)”
Oh, spaghetti squash! I only recently have realized how awesome you really are. A little history: for some silly reason, when I saw one of my roommates in college cook spaghetti squash and put pasta sauce on it, I thought it was so weird. (Sorry Meredith, I realize now I was being stupid.) Couldn’t tell you why I thought that, maybe it was my college-athlete, carb-filled brain just wanting the “real thing” I guess. How silly I was.

As promised from my Instagram account (@journeytoloving.me), here is the post of the BEST one pan meals I picked up while doing Whole30. This is easily one of my favorite go-to dishes, and it comes together in under half an hour! This is another one that is super easy and customizable. I have been making this for awhile, and the recipe below is how I’ve enjoyed making it lately, but of course, feel free to customize it as you choose!
Without any further ado: Continue reading “Turkey, Kale and Sweet Potato Bowl”
