Muffin-Tin Omelets with Kale, Sundried Tomatoes, and Goat Cheese

Muffin-Tin Omelets with Kale, Sundried Tomatoes, and Goat Cheese

When I started Whole30, it was a desperation move to see if I could find something that might speed up healing my plantar fasciitis so I could start running again. It sounded like an okay-ish idea. Actually, that’s totally a pants-on-fire lying lie. I knew it was a terrible idea. That I would be miserable [...]

Whole30: The Craft and Strawberry-Avocado Salsa

I would literally steal candy from a baby right now. LITERALLY. Right this second. Even if that baby had a half-eaten, gag-inducing Cadbury Creme Egg. The legit ones. The ones that look like a real egg. Wrapped in chocolate. [SHUDDER] Of course, that’s after I would punch the How I Met Your Mother writers in [...]

The Return of Whole30

Whole30 Breakfast: Spicy Sweet Potatoes, Green Beans, and Eggs

Hey – remember that time I did Whole30 last year and it was so awesome that I had a very big and very public ugly-cry meltdown (The Meltdown, as we refer to it… when we dare refer to it) in the middle of Whole Foods over the price of strawberries and embarrassed the &^$# out [...]

Spicy Honey-Glazed Salmon

Spicy Honey-Glazed Salmon

Aside from pick-up-phone-and-order-Chinese, this might be the fastest non-cereal, non-PB&J, non-Hot-Pocket dinner ever. 5 minutes of prep, 7 minutes under the broiler. All while you’re microwaving some steam-in-bag broccoli or reheating the leftover roasted asparagus from the night before. Dinner? Done. Just like that. The spice rub comes from an oldie but insanely goodie, Spicy [...]

Roasted Cauliflower

Roasted Cauliflower

It’s mid January. And you’re probably still eating your vegetables, right? A couple of months ago, I shared a killer-addictive recipe for roasted cauliflower. Who uses “killer-addictive” to describe cauliflower? Someone who puts browned butter, prosciutto, and sage on cauliflower. That’s who. Cauliflower is in the market now and the heads are abundant, cheap and [...]

Garlic & Orange Roasted Green Beans

Garlic & Orange Roasted Green Beans

I’m pretty good at a handful of things. And throwing a bunch of green beans seeds into the dirt and mostly remembering to water them when Mother Nature won’t is near the top. This is the barely-a-recipe recipe that we’ve been using to put a dent in the 2-pounds-a-week green beans that have been coming [...]

A Whole30 Favorite: Lettuce-Wrap Chicken Fajitas

Lettuce-Wrap Chicken Fajitas

We’re in the Whole30 home stretch! When we started this thing 4 weeks ago, I imagined Day 31 to be a monstrous carb fest: a deep-fried french fry sandwich in a tortilla. (Possibly battered and deep fried again.) But here we are, 29 days later and I’m all like “Eh.” Don’t get me wrong, it’s [...]

The Whole30, Week 3: Now With Dr-Recommended Cheating!

Whole30 Week 3 Foods

Unless you’ve showed up at my house at 9pm with a cheer-you-up cupcake or are super close family, you probably don’t know that I have this minor heart thing. But I do. And now everyone knows. And in the spirit of the Whole30 – and what I’ve learned because of it – I’m going to [...]
