Mmm goat cheese, the tart and creamy cheese that can be savory, sweet or perfectly in between. I love adding goat cheese to my weekend avocado toast, and to my favorite pasta dishes. It’s quickly replacing mozzarella in my kitchen routine, and can you blame me…the depth in flavors is just perfection. Here are 18 goat cheese recipes that are drool worthy and must try options!
St. Patrick’s Day is coming up, so get ready for all the green things. Or get ready to be pinched. I love getting festive on day’s like St. Patrick’s day and it’s an excuse for me to concoct green food and cocktails for the day. Green actually is my favorite color, so I really enjoy …
Last week I decided not to meal prep and oh was it a bad week. We ate out at least 6 times and I just didn’t feel great. Now, I’m getting a jump start on this week’s meal prep options with 17 Vegetarian meal prep recipes. Sometime when you need to cleanse and detox, an all veggie diet is just what you need. If you’re meal prepping for the first time, I highly recommend getting these single compartment containers or these 3-compartment containers to portion the food. It makes meal time much easier and keeps the food fresh!
Winter doesn’t really bring along a lot of produce options, but technically, winter-time is citrus season. The great thing is, citrus is alway refreshing and brightening, making it seem spring-like. I’ve been eating an orange a day and am trying to add more citrus to my recipes (check out my citrus salad.) Last night, I indulged in a gin and tonic with a squeeze of blood orange juice, and loved the combination of flavors. Here I rounded up 15 citrus cocktail recipes that are sure to be refreshing and will push you into spring mode, if you aren’t already there! Also, since citrus is so vibrant, the drinks look beautiful too!
Meal prepping is the ultimate time and energy saver during a busy week. It just takes 3 hours on a weekend to prepare everything for the week. If you think about it, cooking dinner every night adds up to 7-8 hours, so meal prepping saves at least 3-4 hours! Also, there is no better feeling than having dinner ready when you get home from a tiring work day. The Instant Pot can make meal prepping even easier. It cuts cook time down and creates meals that are full of flavor. At first, I was slightly terrified of my Instant Pot. Pressure cookers just sound scary, but after hearing rave reviews I gave it a try and now love using it weekly. I have a huge list of Instant Pot recipes that I want to try for our meal prep, here are a few of them.
Almond butter: the creamy, delicious and healthy nut butter that is jam packed with great flavors and lots of nutrients. I jumped on the almond butter wagon after eating THE BEST granola cups with almond butter inside. Y’all, these granola bars are life changing and probably the best snack I’ve ever had. So now I am adding almond butter to anything and everything! What I’m most surprised about are the savory almond butter recipes. The sauces all sound amazing and I know what I’ll be trying this weekend.
Looking fun ways to add more veggies into your daily routine? Sandwiches that are jam packed with leafy greens are a great alternative to salads. Have you every had a green goddess sandwich? I felt out of the loop when I first tried the classic Californian dressing. It quickly and easily became one of my favorites. Combine spinach, chives, anchovies, garlic, lemon juice, vinegar, and mayonnaise for flavor filled goodness! Many of these green sandwich recipes have a green goddess base. The dressing is just THAT GOOD with leafy greens. So if you’ve been looking for creative ways to get more greens into your diet, try one of these green sandwich recipes.
