Massaged Kale Salad with Chicken and Avocado

My Favorite Massaged Kale Salad

Ughhh. After ten days of panels by day and parties by night thanks to SXSW, my body haaaates me. It’s been nothing but free booze and free snacks. My diet has basically consisted of KIND Bars, cheap vodka-sodas, and canned rosé. On one hand, that is living the dream, but on the other hand, I […] Read more…

Fried Egg with Sauteed Tomatoes, Avocados, and Power Greens

Fried Egg + Avocado Morning Power Bowl

My two culinary fallbacks: Add more vegetables (Especially avocado. don’t forget to add the avocado.) Put an egg on it So it should be pretty obvious why this egg-and-vegetable power bowl is one of my quick & healthy go-tos in the morning. You could definitely play around with the ingredients here – I included my standbys, […] Read more…

Summertime Avocado Cole Slaw

Best-Ever Summertime Cole Slaw

Let’s talk summer cookouts. Let’s talk sides. Let’s talk COLE SLAW. I love any and all cabbage-based salads and slaws. Like, looooove. I could eat a whole head of cabbage to myself if I put my mind/stomach to it. Maybe this is thanks to my Austrian/Hungarian heritage. Or maybe it’s just because I make one […] Read more…

Curried Quinoa Avocado Naan Flatbreads

Know what I love? Naan. Most bread items I can take or leave, but naan is where it’s at. Especially when topped with all sorts of savory textures and flavors. Like, say, warm quinoa. And cool avocado. Yeeesss. These naan flatbreads are my new go-to snack/app when I have people over for lunch/dinner and want […] Read more…

Avocado Quinoa Cashew Cole Slaw

Creamy Cashew Quinoa Cole Slaw

Yikes! I haven’t blogged in… weeks. That’s what happens when you buy a house. Non-moving related things kind of fall by the wayside. I’ll have to write more on that later, when life settles down. For now, let me just say that cooking hasn’t been my strong suite in the last month while we’ve been packing/unpacking. […] Read more…
