Chorizo, Avocado & Butternut Squash Rice Stuffed Peppers

January 19th, 2014 by

Avocado is one of the most talked about superfoods out there. I feel like if foods were personified (wow, haven’t used that word since the 7th grade) and could be friendly with other foods, then kale and avocado would be best friends. Avocado has taken the place of dairy in sauces, replaced cream cheese on […]

Crunchy Zucchini Noodle Wrap with Feta & Avocado

December 23rd, 2013 by

Did you ever think the day would come where I’d use a wheat wrap in one of my recipes? Bet not. Well, today I’m sharing with you what I eat for lunch on a pretty regular basis: spiralized veggie noodle wraps. When you first start off with a spiralizer, you can’t help but want to […]

Sesame Crusted Tuna & Avocado with Spicy Sesame Zucchini Noodles

December 15th, 2013 by

My mother’s the best at marinading meats. Even this past weekend, there was a flurry of texts sent after a dinner at my parents’ house praising her chicken. I don’t know if she just knows a magical ratio of sauces and spices or if its her timing, but she’s a great marinader. Marinader, yup. Personally, […]

Smoked Chorizo and Butternut Squash Noodle Skillet with Avocado, Kale and Fried Eggs

December 12th, 2013 by

Chorizo. Just the word itself sounds sexy. Smoked chorizo (of the Spanish type) is my jam. On Saturday mornings, while Lu does a little cleaning (he’s the best!), I cook up a big batch of eggs, kale, avocado, onions and chorizo, seasoned lightly with smoked paprika. We can’t wait to dig in.  Before I even […]

Jalapeno-Lime Chicken, Bean & Avocado Zucchini Noodle Soup

November 14th, 2013 by

It’s quickly changing into the winter season, at least here in the NYC area. Goodbye 65 degree lazy Sundays and hello morning flurries! On that same note, adios rooftop tacos and margs and hola tortilla soup! Alas, not even a blistering cold winter day can discourage me from eating some sort of Mexican food.  However, soups […]

Paleo Sweet Potato Noodle Bun

September 18th, 2013 by

I’ve got to say, the Paleo community is very friendly, inviting and collaborative. When I reached out to Juli from PaleOMG, she responded right away and was enthusiastic about me contributing a recipe for her blog, featuring my¬†sweet potato noodle bun. She even introduced me to one of her other Paleo-bloggin’ friends… very cool. Now, […]

Open-Faced Sriracha Tuna Steak BLT on a Sweet Potato Noodle Bun

September 10th, 2013 by

  If you’re crying over your football team losing this weekend, or you don’t care about sports but your boyfriend/girlfriend/friend/dog does, console everyone with today’s BLT. Grilled tomato, a giant tuna steak, bacon, sriracha, and a sweet potato noodle bun: if that doesn’t make you forget about life’s woes, you’re a lost cause.  I really […]

Meatless Monday: Huevos Rancheros with a Spiralized Potato “Tortilla”

August 26th, 2013 by

OK so this isn’t exactly huevos rancheros. Huevos rancheros are traditionally made with a tortilla. Pancho Villa is probably turning over in his grave as we speak. Regardless, I’m giving this classic Mexican dish a spiralized makeover, using potato noodles to create the “tortilla” (which is like a thin pancake). Plus, this recipe is totally […]

Avocado-Basil Zucchini Noodles with Chile-Lime Shrimp & Corn

August 25th, 2013 by

It’s almost¬†Labor Day, which means that you’re probably already vacationing on a mega-yacht sailing through St. Tropez or island-hopping in the Virgin Islands, but tell the hot cabana boy “just a second!”, because you’re gonna wanna see this. This zucchini noodle recipe has one of the largest ROIs – it’s SO easy and SO simple, […]
