10 Minute Sweet Potato Noodle Pad Thai

I love anything that takes 10 minutes or less… especially this dish. It’s truly so satisfying and just uses a few simple ingredients! You can pair it with a protein of your choice or just eat it by itself. It’s pretty hearty and flavorful. It happens to be paleo/whole 30 diet friendly as well :)

Coconut Sea Salt Caramel Snack Bars (Paleo-friendly, No-bake)

These bars taste like candy if I do say so myself. I had a few toddlers taste test them and they agreed ;) However, they’re made from all whole foods ingredients. They’re super easy to whip up (you don’t even need to turn on the oven and you ONLY use your food processor) so there is minimal mess. Plus they’re full of filling healthy fats and fiber that help balance your blood sugar with the natural sweetness from the dates. So they’ll give you that long sustained energy instead of that spike, crash, then craving for another spike (we’ve all been there).

Easy Citrus Dijon Salmon

I eat salmon at least once a week and honestly, I don’t get sick of it. Usually I just spray it with some avocado oil and throw on some spices and throw it in the oven. But I realized, this recipe is JUST as easy but has such a unique and satisfying flavor profile. When I made it the first time, my husband was really pleasantly surprised that we weren’t just doing the same old thing with our salmon. It truly takes only a few minutes so I hope you try it and love it too!

Creamy Coconut Chia Pudding

This recipe is stupid easy. You’ll do it once and be like “that was it?” … which, is one of the many reasons I love it so much. It’s also great for meal prep since it’s easy to make ahead, very portable, and lasts most of the week. This creamy coconut chia pudding can be eaten as a breakfast, snack, or even a topping for another food (ahem waffles and pancakes!) Bonus, it is completely free of processed ingredients and is full of healthy fats, fiber and protein to keep you full for a long while! Can’t wait to hear what your favorite toppings are.

Avocado Hemp Seed Pesto

This pesto is LOADED with healthy fats and is creamy and delicious to boot. The avocados and olive oil both provide those Mediterranean monounsaturated fats while the hemp seeds provide essential, anti-inflammatory omega 3 fatty acids. The hemp seeds are also a great plant-based source of protein (one of the few providing all 9 essential amino acids). So this recipe is doing all sorts of good for you! It’s also super decadent tasting and delicious on so many different foods (suggestions below). Bonus, it takes under 10 minutes start to finish!

Sweet Potato Toast

This recipe is SO easy it’s barely a recipe. But I find people do need instructions to make it, so here it is. I like to meal prep these and make 2-3 potatoes at once then take out a few slices when I’m hungry. They last pretty well in the fridge so it just makes it a lot easier later on.

Tahini Roasted Cauliflower

The healthy fats in the tahini and ghee combine to make this cauliflower taste nothing short of decadent. It’s a quick recipe to whip up and I always crave it, so it has become one of my meal prep staples! It’s friendly for almost all diets, to make it vegan, you can switch the ghee to coconut oil. I hope you love it as much as I do!

Cauliflower "No'Oats"

This grain-free recipe is fluffy like oats but is a great alternative for anyone trying to avoid oats and grains (paleo, Whole 30, etc.) it's also a great way to fill up on vegetables! I love having these as breakfast or a snack and pairing with some nut butter, fruit, or a roasted root vegetable like delicata squash or sweet potato. The recipe is very simple but takes a little while to make. I like to do it while I'm meal prepping other items so I can multi-task as the liquid is absorbing.
