Hoisin Lime Noodle Bowl

Nothing says Friday to me more than sweatpants and a bowl of noodles. Especially in this gloomy weather! #tiredteacherlife yes I know I’m only 28, but by Friday I feel 78. I saw Bosh.tv making a noodle bowl with a Hoisin sauce and decided to make one as well and just make the sauce up…

Shiitake and Bok Choy Soba Noodle Bowl

I’m always up for a bowl full of saucy, salty, flavorful noodles packed with veggies. Since I crave them so often, I try to come up with new combinations to make it interesting each time. Shiitakes are the most popular mushroom for Asian cooking and I love using Bok Choy in stir fries for a…

Veggilicious Pasta

I bought a bag of whole wheat fusilli from Trader Joe’s to bring to the mountains as a back up in case we needed something to eat, but since we didn’t I got to use it the night we got home. I got some more veggies because I like to have about an equal ratio…

Loaded Mexican Rice Bake

Rice-a-licious! Well, my friend requested something with rice and guacamole so I came up with this! It’s a Mexican rice dish packed with extra yumminess to make it a complete meal. It was Josh’s 3rd time eating Mexican this weekend, and I think he would continue to eat it daily if guac is involved. This…

Summer Veggie Linguine with Pink Sauce

Yum! I was planning on making a fettuccine Alfredo with summer veggies from my McDougall recipe app, but I changed it up to fit my taste for what I was wanting tonight. I wanted to cut back on the fat from the cup of nuts it called for (since I ate another brownie today) so…

Chickpea Pot Pie Lasagna

It’s a two in one favorite! This concept just blew my mind because it’s two of my favorite dishes together in one pan, and I’ve been wondering how it would be for a while now. I found this recipe on my McDougall Starch Solution app and I finally decided to give it a try. Don’t…

Crockpot Pizza Potatoes

This is about as easy as they come! You only need a crockpot and very few ingredients to make a simple, tasty meal for a busy night. I got this recipe from the McDougall app and you can add whatever marinara sauce and toppings/veggies you usually put on your pizza to make these easy pizza…

Baked Penne Mushroom Florentine

Another night, another McDougall recipe this week. His is Baked Penne Florentine, but I added the baby bellas to make it a little more substantial and add some more flavors to this dish and it turned out to be good! It uses cashews as the base of the creamy sauce so it adds protein with…

Cauliflower Dal

I made another McDougall recipe last night and this was for cauliflower dal. It’s oil free and made from whole foods to make a simple dal recipe. It has potatoes, cauliflower, split red lentils, and spices that come together to make a mild dal, and I actually added more spices to mine than it called…
