Chicken Shawarma Salad

Amy No Comments

One of my all-time favorite meals is a Mediterranean spread--a table full of hummus, baba ghanoush, tzatziki, tabbouleh, tahini sauce, the works!

But here's one you can make indoors year-round, Read more [...]

About two weeks after settling in with the family in North Western Australia, all the while sharing my IIN knowledge and passion for nutrition with my host mom, she agreed to clean out the pantries together. I taught her about some preservatives and other ingredients to look for when grocery shopping and we talked about healthy alternatives. We cleared out most of the processed Read more [...]

Chicken Bastilla–A Taste of Morocco

Amy No Comments

I'm finally getting around to writing some more travel-inspired recipes! A few months ago I was blessed enough to experience the Magic of Morocco. For four short days I was immersed in a sea of beautifully bright colors, hand woven carpets, expert salesmen, the pungent smell of tanneries producing leather, mint tea, and delicious, soulful, beautifully crafted food. I am fascinated by their entire culture, and specifically, there is something so majestic to me about Moroccan cuisine.  It was a Read more [...]
