Caprese Toast

A caprese salad is a simple, delicious, refreshing salad of tomatoes, basil, and mozzarella. It’s a great dish which relies on extremely high quality ingredients for maximum flavor impact. I love caprese salads, but you can only really enjoy them in the summer, because the hothouse tomatoes available the rest of the year simply aren’t […]

Tzatziki: Savory Greek Yogurt Sauce

Yogurt is not just for breakfast. Don’t get me wrong, yogurt is great as a thickening protein source in a smoothie or as a binder for a bowl of fruit, but yogurt is also great as a savory ingredient. Savory tzatziki is a tangy Greek sauce for meat, rice, and bread. It’s a better addition […]

Mayo-free egg salad

Eggs are a great source of protein, omega-3 fats, and vitamin B12. Mayonnaise is mostly a source of fat.

Sometimes the best breakfast is reworking a little of what I had the night before. For this particular breakfast, I start with lentils and then throw in whatever leftover vegetables I have hanging around. I like to keep cooked lentils on hand, because they are a great way to bulk out a salad or soup. […]

Angelic Eggs

Deviled eggs are a summer time classic on picnics and in backyard barbecues. But you can cut back on the mayonnaise (which probably has mostly soy oil) and pickle relish (chock full of sugar) while loading up on taste. Eggs are packed with protein and also include vitamin A, several B vitamins, phosphorus, and selenium. […]

Homemade Yogurt

Yogurt should be a delicious and beneficial part of your diet. When made correctly, it’s not full of sugar, and it has plenty of healthy protein, calcium, B vitamins, potassium, and magnesium. Further, the bacteria in yogurt are the good kind, the probiotics you want to encourage more of in your gut. While you can’t […]
