Build-Your-Own Chicken Pho

Amy No Comments

  Who knew pho could be so easy to make at home?! Pho is the per­fect Win­ter dish, whether you’re try­ing to get over a cold, won­der­ing how to eat more hot veg­gies, or it’s so cold out­side the only thing to do is invite your friends over for a build-your-own pho par­ty fol­lowed by a snug­gle ses­sion near the fire. My favorite part about this dish is that every­one can make it their own. Sim­ply choose your favorite veg­gies and gar­nish­es and let every­one build their own bowl. After all, food Read more […]

Paleo Pumpkin Bread (with chocolate chips!)

Amy No Comments

  Who says pump­kin is just for Fall?! So I may have stretched this year’s Paleo Pump­kin Spice sea­son a lit­tle long, but I had to make up for miss­ing last year. And in my opin­ion, there can nev­er be too much pump­kin! This Paleo Pump­kin Bread recipe is a great treat to make just for hav­ing around the house. There’s noth­ing fan­cy about it, but each slice feels like you are seri­ous­ly spoil­ing your­self. While the dark choco­late chips make it pret­ty deca­dent, its not very sweet com­pared to Read more […]

Trader Joe’s Broccoli Slaw and Kale Salad

Amy No Comments

  If you’re like the major­i­ty of mid­dle class Los Ange­les, you prac­ti­cal­ly live off of Trad­er Joe’s pre­pared sal­ads and meals. While I am a big fan of Trad­er Joe’s, I don’t love pre­pared meals from most gro­cery stores. Sim­ply because near­ly all of them con­tain preser­v­a­tives to keep them on the shelf for longer, and often times, arti­fi­cial fla­vors and col­ors to achieve the desired taste and look in a food that sits on the shelf for days, maybe even weeks. But don’t fret–I have just Read more […]

Coconut Vegan Bacon

Amy No Comments

  Looks like I’m back on my break­fast kick! Well actu­al­ly, my favorite use for this sin­ful­ly smoky and crunchy, yet meat­less, bacon is on top of my favorite soup or sal­ad! With the help of liq­uid smoke, you can make just about any­thing taste like bacon. Lucky for all those veg­ans and veg­e­tar­i­ans out there who love that unde­ni­able savory smoky smell of bacon siz­zling in a pan, this easy recipe makes plant-based bacon as easy as pie. The coconut flakes take on that beau­ti­ful caramel hue, Read more […]

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 even bet­ter than that is all of those lus­cious condi­ments atop a suc­cu­lent shawar­ma. And it goes to the next lev­el when I can enjoy all of that with­out the bread. Since most of us don’t have a giant spit to roast meat in our kitchen, some­times you got­ta impro­vise. You may have tried my BBQ chick­en shawar­ma. But here’s one you can make indoors year-round, Read more […]
