Stuffed Acorn Squash

I first tried Stuffed Acorn Squash a few years ago at Hu Kitchen in NYC, and recently decided to create my own spin on it because I find it to be a super delicious, healthy comfort food. Acorn squash is a good source of healthy carbs and contains an array of nutrients. I stuffed my acorn squash with grass fed ground beef (which is a great source of essential omega 3 fatty acids + protein), coconut milk (healthy fat), Kettle…

Butternut Squash Noodles with Mushroom Meat Sauce

Meat sauce with noodles was always one of my favorite dinners growing up. Now, sometimes I’ll eat it with gluten-free rice noodles and other times I’ll use a veggie noodle, like in this recipe. You can use a spiralizer to turn any veggie into noodles! For this recipe I used butternut squash, but you can use zucchini or sweet potato if you’d prefer. If you buy all pre-chopped vegetables like I did, this recipe is super quick & easy –…

Gingerbread Coffee

Gingerbread Coffee (Serves 2) One of my favorite things about the holiday season is the seasonal coffee flavors. Back in the day I lived for going to Starbucks and getting either a Gingerbread Latte or an Eggnog Latte (never a Peppermint Mocha because I despise mint chocolate). Now that I’m more conscious about what I put into my body, I make my own versions of these delicious coffee treats! Gingerbread Latte’s were my usual go-to, and this year I finally…

Salmon Salad (Quick & Easy)

Salmon Salad (Quick & Easy) I have to admit I’ve been slacking lately on eating my veggies. The other day my body was screaming to me that I needed to eat a salad. So I made a salmon salad the past for the past two days for lunch & I even had some green juice! It may have also had something to do with the fact that I just bought some Tessemae’s & Jacqueline and Jerome dressings that I was excited to…

Soft & Chewy Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

These pumpkin chocolate chip cookies are soft & chewy. They’re also grain and nut free. I originally created this recipe to make pancakes, but that was a major fail. As I mixed everything together, instead of turning out like pancake batter, I had a thick dough. Sooo, I decided to make cookies and add chocolate chips. They’re very lightly sweetened and make a great fall dessert. Once it hits September, I’m all about pumpkin everything. I’m your stereotypical white girl…
