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 […]

Roasted Cauliflower & Beet Salad

Amy No Comments

Whether it’s Spring or Fall in your part of the world, and just warm­ing up or just cool­ing down, a great way to add depth, char­ac­ter, and a bit of warmth to your sal­ads is with warm spices and roast­ed veg­gies. I just nev­er get tired of fresh vibrant Mediter­ranean fla­vors in any sea­son. Roast­ed cau­li­flower and beets bring beau­ti­ful col­or, while warm spices of cumin, turmer­ic, and cin­na­mon con­trast bril­liant­ly with creamy salty Feta cheese, fresh cilantro, lime juice, and slight­ly sweet and tangy Pome­gran­ate Read more […]

One of my favorite say­ings I’ve tak­en away from my edu­ca­tion at Insti­tute for Inte­gra­tive Nutri­tion (IIN), is “taste the rain­bow!” And I’m not talk­ing about sug­ar-laden Skit­tles, I’m talk­ing about a well-round­ed nutri­tious diet that incor­po­rates all of the beau­ti­ful col­ors Moth­er Nature has to offer. Adding a vari­ety of col­ors to your diet is one of the eas­i­est and most eye-appeal­ing ways to ensure you’re get­ting all the vit­a­mins and nutri­ents your body needs. It’s no sur­prise that all of my favorite Read more […]

For some of you it may be start­ing to look and feel like Fall, but here in Cal­i­for­nia it still feels like Sum­mer to me! Vis­it your local Farmer’s Mar­ket to take advan­tage of all the deli­cious end of Sum­mer pro­duce for this bright and cleans­ing Sea­son­al Sum­mer Kale Sal­ad. You can even exper­i­ment with the dif­fer­ent vari­eties of kale they have to offer. For this sal­ad, I used a com­bi­na­tion of my two favorites- Curly and Pur­ple Kale. And this sal­ad is great for a BBQ or Sum­mer pic­nic. And what’s Read more […]

Asian Salmon Salad reminds me of a baked salmon sushi roll without the rice

Asian Salmon Salad

Amy No Comments

This grain-free and dairy-free Salmon Sal­ad was inspired by an Asian Salmon Roll from the Food Net­work, but who needs bread when you can have a cleans­ing cool­ing Sum­mer sal­ad?!  As some of you may know, I’ve been couch-surf­ing and liv­ing out of a suit­case for the past cou­ple months since being back from trav­el­ing. I am lucky enough to have amaz­ing friends that have host­ed me and made me feel right at home. Recent­ly I stayed with my love­ly friend Maya and her adorable dog Addy. For just a few short Read more […]
