So…our oven is dead. *womp womp womp* I had a moment of gloom last night when I realized that I was hoping to make these brussels for dinner, but fear-not; they are just as delicious on the stove-top! I softened them up a bit by steaming them with some water, first, before searing them with olive oil, a … More Honey-Balsamic Brussel Sprouts *Stovetop Version*
Trader Joe’s had some FIERCE-looking rocket Arugula this weekend, so I definitely wanted to work that into dinner. I was in the mood for one of those Monday night one-pot deals that tricked my brain into thinking that I was eating comfort food. For me, anything involving pasta, olive oil, and grated Parmesan takes me to my … More Spicy Brown Rice Pasta with Peppers and Arugula
BREAKING OUT THE BREVILLE!! It’s not like I don’t eat enough produce; I live and breathe fruits and vegatables. Sometimes, though, I get a bit off-track and feel as if I have consumed one too many glasses of wine or beer.

I guess to ultimately figure out which ones give you more bang for your buck, and how much supplementation our bodies’ really need.

I say JOINT because this place looked a little sketch; not gonna lie, however, it brought this wonderful, tasty, and (MOST of the time) healthy vegetarian option into my life. Apparently, this Kebab thing is big over in Europe, or at … More Savory Falafel Sliders
I am always lethargic on Mondays, and having something healthy, satisfying, and quick to throw together for dinner at home is a godsend! I’ve been making this one for a while and I love that it is packed with aminos from the almonds and fish, while the spinach pasta adds a kick of Iron. I think that the only … More Almond-Crusted Tilapia W/ Lemony Spinach-Chive Linguine

Holy Smokes. The most common question I get these days: “How do you get enough protein?!” My personal answer is usually the overused “Nuts, seeds, eggs, beans, and now I can even throw fish into the mix.” It amazes me that people still exist that believe that I am malnourished because I don’t eat mammal flesh. One could figure … More Green Curry Lentils with Spinach & Coconut Milk
Having been to Cafe Io about four times now, I suppose I can officially say that my meals here have been consistently great! Formerly Iovino’s cafe, Cafe io resides in a small, quaint shop-front on Beverly Road. The atmosphere is charming, fresh, and clean and they have a pretty extensive menu with a lot of … More Cafe IO – Iovino’s Cafe – Mt Lebanon
