Edamame & Quinoa Salad

Like so many of my recipes, this meal was born out of necessity. I was short on time. I was freakin' hot in my apartment (I live in an older complex and during the summer the AC can't keep up with the Texas heat). So I popped my head into the fridge to see what… Continue reading Edamame & Quinoa Salad

Sausage and Bell Pepper Frittata

Brinner = Breakfast + Dinner I love having breakfast foods for meals other than breakfast time. Pancakes for lunch? Yes! Eggs for dinner? Yes 100%! Not only is whipping up a frittata easy, but you can use any leftovers for breakfast and save previous morning time. It's a win-win. I added sausage to this frittata… Continue reading Sausage and Bell Pepper Frittata

That is exactly what happened to me the… Continue reading Caesar Pasta Salad

Nourishing Eggs, Beans, and Rice Bowl

Pinto beans were, and as an adult continue to be, a household staple in my childhood home. I remember thinking from a young age that beans keep you strong and healthy- that was the perception imparted on me! There's rice under all those toppings, I promise! Now, as a nutrition student, I've come to realize… Continue reading Nourishing Eggs, Beans, and Rice Bowl

Goodbye Summer Salad

Gonna be honest: I created this summer salad recipe right at the beginning of the summer months! But since I never got around to writing it up, I figure now is a good time before berries are no longer in season. Consider this salad a goodbye ode to summer. This salad is a meal base… Continue reading Goodbye Summer Salad

Meatless Burrito Bowl with Avocado Rose

I love burritos and I don't want to tire of the typical tortilla with fillings. So I started to make burrito bowls, which allow me to use whatever is in the fridge (bonus → reduced food waste). Although using up extra veggies leads to a different bowl every time, there are some staples in my… Continue reading Meatless Burrito Bowl with Avocado Rose
