Riced Sweet Potato and Cauliflower with BBQ Chicken and Dill-Cucumber Noodle Salad

If you followed me along on Instagram last week, then you saw I was at the photoshoot for my third cookbook, coming out in spring 2018!

I haven’t shared many details about the book yet, so stay tuned, but I couldn’t be more excited about it, especially after the photoshoot.

At these photoshoots, your recipes come alive, thanks to the talented team behind the shoot, like the photographer, food stylists, prop stylists, and all the assistants.

Paleo Cauliflower Alfredo with Gluten-Free Chicken Meatballs and Sweet Potato Noodles

I’m really excited about today, not only because this recipe is hands-down my favorite meatball recipe to date, but because our Brand & Community Manager, Meaghan, goes from part-time to full-time, officially today!

I’ve been waiting for this moment for so long and I’m probably doing a happy dance somewhere in my apartment right now, as this posts. Or, sipping coffee, trying to wake up. Either or….

Vegan Buffalo Cauliflower Quinoa Bowls with Spiralized Onions

After making these vegan buffalo cauliflower and sweet potato noodles, I fell in love with buffalo cauliflower.

Whenever I see buffalo cauliflower bites on a menu, I always order them – super breaded and fried or lightly breaded and baked (like my version!), they always satisfy.

Since you all know I love my veggie quinoa bowls, I figured make a full meal out of this typical appetizer dish, thanks to quinoa, avocado, and some fragrant spiralized onions!

Inspiralized and Beyond Cookbook Cover Reveal

Inspiralized and Beyond

I can’t believe I’m sharing the cover of my THIRD cookbook with all of you right now, Inspiralized and Beyond.

I couldn’t be more thankful for all of you, for giving me the opportunity to write not ONE, not TWO, but THREE cookbooks.

And unlike the first two cookbooks, this cookbook includes non-spiralized recipes. Yes, that’s right! Those recipes are the “and Beyond” part of “Inspiralized and Beyond.” There are so many reasons why I’m excited for this extension of Inspiralized, so let me explain everything about this new book.

And if you can’t wait to read the post, you can already go ahead and pre-order Inspiralized and Beyond! It publishes on May 1st!

Italian Pork Ragu with Garlic Riced Cauliflower: #BeyondInspiralized

Italian Pork Ragu with Garlic Cauliflower Rice

The next two days are two days that completely changed my life forever.

Today, four years ago, I quit my corporate job. I walked into my boss’s office, I quit, and I walked home, bought the domain “Inspiralized.com” and felt a level excitement for the future that I could never adequately put into words.

I felt like I had this huge opportunity in front of me and I knew I was going to take it. I could barely sleep that night, I really felt like a kid on Christmas Eve.

Raw Beet Noodle and Rainbow Chard Salad with Avocado-Ranch Dressing

Raw Beet Noodle and Rainbow Chard Salad with Avocado-Ranch Dressing

I’ll be the first to admit: sometimes, it’s tough to be healthy.

Sometimes, you just “can’t find the time” to put together a healthy meal or snack.

Sometimes, reaching for a block of cheese and crackers is easier than laboring over a salad.

I’ve been there, often. However, I have a little trick that I’m sharing with you today that involves Nourish Snacks.

Creamy Okinawa Sweet Potato Pasta with Leeks and Pancetta

Creamy Okinawa Sweet Potato Pasta with Leeks and Pancetta

How about those Grammy’s, eh?

Truth be told, after a very filling seafood feast at one of our favorite restaurants here in Florida, I passed out on the couch right at the beginning of the show.

We also tried to watch The Walking Dead, but, again, I slept as the zombies attacked Rick Grimes.

Vegan Buffalo Cauliflower with Sweet Potato Noodles

Vegan Buffalo Cauliflower with Sweet Potato Noodles

Last Sunday, while I was grocery shopping for the week, I had written down on my notepad: “something for the playoffs.”

If you don’t watch sports or care, then I’ll tell you: we’re in the midst of the NFL playoffs. Actually, none of my teams are in the playoffs this year, and I’ve grown generally apathetic towards football.

However, my fiance loves sports (as most of ’em do) and I wanted to get something playoffs-themed for a Sunday night dinner.

Besides, there are 9023453 ways you can reinvent “spaghetti and meatballs,” especially when you have a spiralizer.

My weight loss story: How I used the spiralizer to get healthy and lose 25 pounds

The Inspiralized Weight Loss Journey How I used the spiralizer to take control of my health, lose 25 pounds and get totally fit!

You might want to bookmark this post, print it out, or save it for a weekend morning when you have time to waste. Or, grab a bowl of popcorn, lean back and get to scrollin’.

Why?

I’ve never been a short-winded person. I’m terrible at keeping this “short and sweet.” I love to talk, write and explain. And today, of all days, I’m especially verbose, because I’m pouring my heart out about my personal weight loss journey.

Carrot Noodles with Mushrooms and Sausage in a Cashew Cream Sauce

Carrot Noodles with Mushrooms and Sausage in a Cashew Cream Sauce

Yesterday, I went to the grocery store downstairs to grab some spinach for my morning smoothie. Near the spinach, there is a basket full of carrots.

Sometimes, these carrots are your average skinny carrots. Yesterday, however, it was as if a farmer had said “let’s make a carrot perfect for spiralizing.”

I bought the two carrots, of course, even though I was not sure what I would make.
