Fresh Fish Friday: Baked Halibut with Garlicky Kale & Toasted Cashews

I’ve got a quick, easy, super healthy and flavorful meal to share with you this week! A lot of people tell me that they wish they ate more fish but they just don’t know how to prepare it or what kinds to look for. Fish seems to be the most intimidating protein in the kitchen…   Read More»


Sweet Potato and Tomato Pasta

Sometimes I’m just in the mood for something different. Something I’ve never had before. That happened to be a few weeks ago, a day where I didn’t feel like being in the kitchen for hours and was feeling super sad about letting go of my foster dog Lenka. We’re talking ugly-cry-multiple-times-a-day-for-multiple-days-in-a-row sad. To the point where…   Read More»


Spicy Veggie Chili

Remember 2 Mondays ago when Ohio State shocked the world and won the National Championship? That same night, I shocked the world (of Texas) with an amazing chili recipe– with NO meat!

Poblano Chilaquiles

The breakfast chilaquiles at State and Allen was my very first brunch meal in Dallas. I just picked what I thought was the weirdest thing off the menu at the time: Two fried eggs, Oaxaca cheese, Tasso ham, black beans, & edamame on warm tortilla chips-served w/a side of salsa. And oh, was it good. Typically,…   Read More»


Meatless Monday: Veggie Fajitas

One of the things I hear almost daily from my clients is “I love Mexican food, but I know it’s sooo bad for me. How can I fit in my favorite Mexican dishes without kissing my weight loss efforts goodbye?” The great thing about Mexican-style cuisine is that it can be made super healthy with…   Read More»


Baked Eggplant Parmesan

Last week one of my clients brought me some eggplant from her family’s garden and of course, what else do you do with eggplant other than make eggplant parm? (Seriously though… what do you do with it?) Only problem was, I’ve never made eggplant parm, so I did a little research, ran to the grocery…   Read More»
