Chickpea Turmeric Quinoa Bowl

Fancy a few superfoods? Well, then you need this Chickpea Turmeric Quinoa Bowl!

When you’re a food that’s lumped in the category of “super foods,” you must feel pretty fantastic.

Ok, maybe it’s not quite like that, but I sure love the idea of food celebrities, don’t you? Kale and blueberries slipping into limos while shielding their eyes from the flash bulbs of the paparazzi. Fun!

Roasted Cauliflower with Chipotle Cream

Cauliflower is having a moment right now.

Some may argue it’s moment is over, but not me. Never one to shy away from a culinary or food trend, I wanted to give the roasted cauliflower “steak” a try. Well, so here’s the thing about me, I am NOT patient. Not one little bit.

I know, crazy, right? Overnight oats are everywhere and everyone claims they’re awesome.  They always look tasty, but I’ve never tried them. When I heard that this month’s Recipe Redux theme was to try a fellow Redux-er’s recipe, I knew I had to try Amber’s Blueberry-Walnut Overnight Oats as my overnight oats “guinea pig.”

Super Greek Yogurt Smoothies

Fertility Friday + Smoothies 

That’s right, you read that correctly, I said “Fertility Friday + Smoothies!” A random pairing? Of course not, I do everything with intention…ok, well almost everything. 

Today for Fertility Friday I would like to focus on the amazing nutritional power of smoothies. Yes, I know that people are  crazy about smoothies these days. They make their own, they buy the fancy one that costs 10 dollars and they insist on having them every morning for their “bowl” breakfast. But this is one trend where you can believe the hype…at least to a certain extent.
