Coconut Sole with Spinach & Sweet Potatoes

I got the idea for this recipe from Melissa Hartwig’s Whole30 cookbook, but of course I changed the spices to my liking. Let me just say that I thought this looked good, but actually is was absolutely delicious. Wow. Go me. AND this is a super easy recipe guaranteed to wow even the pickiest of…

Holiday Brussel Sprout Salad

I made this salad for Christmas dinner at my parents’ house and I think it was a hit. It looks pretty and festive with the colors as well. You can easily make this ahead of time too which is always a bonus during the busy holiday season. We ate it two days in a row and…

Curried Apple Chicken Salad

I made this yummy salad for Christmas Eve dinner at my Grandma’s house this year. We always have a casual meal because our family is so big and everyone comes and goes at different times so a fancy sit-down dinner would just never work in that setting. I adapted the recipe of Grass Routes Kitchen partly because…

Zoodles and Meatballs

In the past I’ve used my spiralizer, but ended up baking the zoodles with lemon, lime, salt and pepper. However, my brilliant mom suggested I just sauté them in a skillet, and that’s what I did. They turned out just perfect! Here in Belgium, you can find ready-made meatballs for days so I did not…

Spaghetti-Squash Carbonara

Where have you been all my life?) So I tried one batch with spaghetti-squash and one batch with gluten-free spaghetti noodles. Both…

Sweet Pumpkin & Apple Soup

It’s fall and that means it’s pumpkin time! I’m still new to the roasting pumpkin game. I’m so used to buying pureed pumpkin in a can, but roasting your own is easy, not very time-consuming, and so much healthier than the processed can crap. This soup is like dessert. It’s really rich due to the coconut…

Citrus Salmon with Roasted Tomatoes and Zoodles

I received a vegetable #spiralizer for my birthday a couple weeks ago, and have just now made the time to try it out. I have a Cuisique 8 in 1 Spiralizer, and so far I love it. It has several types of blades, a juicing adapter, and it holds all the finished veggies in a decent…

Quinoa & Rutabaga Patties

This recipe was inspired by The Candida Diet‘s recipe. I find this recipe to be a nice light dinner or lunch. It’s possible to make these ahead of time and freeze them for a quick meal option. *Ingredients* 1 cup cooked quinoa 1 large rutabaga, shredded 3 green onions, sliced 1 large clove of garlic 2…
