While I love summer, when the weather starts cooling off I look forward to cooking up comforting bowls of hearty chili. I dug out my slow cooker for this one, making it a great dish to prep in the morning and allow to simmer away all day. Perfect for a busy week night or if you’re entertaining guests as this recipe will fill your home with deliciously enticing aromas.
I don’t know about you but I LOVE serving my meals in bowls. Why’s that? Well because there’s something very visually satisfying about a bowl full to the brim of food. My belly is half-way satisfied before I even take my first bite! The name behind the buddha bowl encapsulates exactly that imagery with your enormous mound of food supposedly looking just like the Buddha’s giant belly.
Holiday greens are typically just alternative vessels for cramming even more delicious fat-based foods into our mouths – hello Green Bean Casserole and Bacon Parmesan Brussel Sprouts! ?

This is a perfect side dish for your Thanksgiving feast! You can get all of the creamy cheesy goodness of potato gratin with a whole lot less carbs thanks to cauliflower! Plus the egg whites pack a protein punch, something that can be hard to get enough of during the holidays.
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard someone tell me that they don’t eat carbs but then I’ll see them happily munch their way through an açaí bowl. People who don’t track their food don’t know any better but if you do track your macros, you’ll know just how calorically dense these bowls can be! What you probably thought of as being super healthy and good for you, you’ve now discovered is often super high in sugar and can easily set you back 100 grams carbs or more!
These brownie bites are a perfect little treat to set out on halloween! Honestly they are great anytime of year but add on some googly eyes and little legs and you have a perfect spooky treat to add some flair to your halloween party!
Here’s a vegetarian feast fit for all those cheese lovers out there! Eggplant is the key ingredient in this simple skillet dish that can easily be turned into a family-size meal. You’ll be surprised by just how much protein is provided by this meat-free dish.
Calling all coffee lovers! We have a frozen mocha treat for you here that comes with a surprising twist. Cauliflower and ice cream!? You bet! It’s the surprise ingredient here. When used frozen it helps to add thickness and gets you closer to that 800 grams of fruits and veggies! If you love crunchy toppings like I do, try adding some cacao nibs as sprinkles. Chopped nuts, granola and coconut flakes would also be super tasty additions to compliment each mouthful of mocha deliciousness.
It’s officially fall and apple picking season is in full swing! This recipe is full of fall flavors with ingredients like butternut squash and cinnamon. It will leave your house smelling oh-so wonderful! This is a great side dish or could even stand alone as a healthier dessert option in place of your typical apple crisps and pies.
Beans are a fantastic way to add more fiber and protein to your diet. I might come from the land of baked beans on toast but beans are actually pretty versatile in the kitchen! One of my favorite ways to prepare them is by throwing them into soups and stews. Whether you’re vegan or just looking to add more nutrient dense meals into your day then a bean soup has to be one of the most economical and convenient ways of doing exactly that. Soup is so easy to make in bulk and transport with you to work or reheat at home after a long day at the office.
