Earlier this week I posted a recipe for a wonderfully cozy bowl of creamy chicken soup with dumplings. I mean, talk about craveable comfort food, right? Although, as the title “The Craveable Kitchen” might imply, my food cravings don’t always run the comfort food variety. […]
When it comes to eating healthfully, breakfast (for me) is no problem. In the morning, I’m super motivated and ready to begin each day with the best intentions. Lunch is also pretty good, the perk of working from home a lot. But, by mid-afternoon my […]
Does seeing the word salad in the title of this post feel like a let down? I hope not, because I love a really good salad. Sure, there are some sad, sad salads out there (SMH), but like everything in life, we can’t let the bad ones ruin it for the good! Instead, let’s pick up a few tips so we can all build a better salad!
Truth be told, I don’t really care for boneless, skinless chicken breast. I have always loved other foods exponentially more, so I’ve tended to ignore chicken completely. Some exceptions apply, like braised chicken thighs or crispy chicken thighs, of course, but dark meat is a […]
Let’s start with the most important question – “Why should you meal plan?” In a nut shell, by planning meals ahead of time you will eat better, save money, waste less food, and reduce the stress associated with mealtime.

So, I did something new recently. Something I should have done a long time ago! You see, I’ve been stuck in a paradigm. The Vitamix Smoothie paradigm. Whenever people talk about smoothies, and why they love their Vitamix for making smoothies, my mind would just […]
Friends! I love this recipe so much. If recipes were employees, I’d proclaim this dish “Employee of the Month – December 2017”. Whether I was cooking for healthy clients, or just trying to offer something wholesome on a holiday table, this simple side dish has […]
Quinoa bowls are all the rage. Any grain bowl, really. Sure, “bowls” are borderline too trendy, but I can’t really hate on this trend because they basically sum up exactly how I like to eat all in one dish. Boil a big batch of whatever your favorite grains – quinoa, brown rice, wild rice, farro or barley all work – then stash them in the fridge and when meal time hits, toss them with whatever your favorite ingredients – veggies, nuts, dried fruit, cheese, seafood, meat all work, too!

In honor of the new year and trying to start 2018 on a healthy foot, I took inspiration from my most favorite foods (nachos and tacos) and made a compromising quinoa-rice bowl to satisfy my fiesta cravings. And because I love all things eggs, I decided to put a 6-minute egg on top for my protein. Although shredded rotisserie chicken would be faster and seared shrimp would be delish, if you prefer your eggs only at breakfast!
