Mushrooms are one of my favorite veggies! Its super easy to cook, goes with almost any dish and its packed Vitamin D. Mushrooms are also great for the immune system so I typically load my winter/fall wishes with mushrooms any chance I get to gear up for cold and flu season, but I could basically eat mushrooms year round because I am such a fan.
I came up with this dish last year when I got some fresh dill from my friend's garden so I went crazy with the dill in this dish, but its so tasty!
Mushroom & Farro Stir Fry with Chard, Peppers and Dill
This is one of my favorite recipes. It's easy to make, packed with nutrients and a great local calorie comfort food option. Tomatoes are high in vitamins A, C, K and also a great source of beta-carotene, which is great for your skin. The red peppers are also high in C's and add a great mild-spicy kick. What's not to love!?
This recipe is vegan, no cream or cheese needed but it's still pretty creamy. Let's be clear--I am BIG cheese fan, but I've cut back a lot on my cheese in take that few years, which has helped me stay in balance. I try to avoid eating cheese when I can. I find that when I order tomato soup at a restaurant, it's typically packed with heavy cream and cheese. Before I got a good blender I thought the only way to make a creamy soup was to add lots of cream to it. Thanks my blendec blender, making soups and sauces is quick, easy and much healthier. #teamblendec
Since the soup comes out creamy every time, I am less likely to add cheese. But if you want something creamier, adding greek yogurt is a healthier alternative when you want a heavier soup. Enjoy!
This is my favorite Go-To Salad when I am super busy and don't have a lot of time to cook.
Super quick, fresh, and packed with protein, this quinoa salad makes for the perfect lunch when I am constantly on the go and rushing from meeting to meeting. The quinoa and beans give me a lot of sustenance and energy throughout the day.
Enjoy... in just 20 minutes!
This is the quickest comfort food dish that I aboslutely love to make. There is something about the creamy polenta that just makes me feel at so cozy, and you can never go wrong when you add cheese to something! :-)

Who am I and do why write this blog? Each time I ask myself that question, I find that I have so much more to learn and discover. "Who am I" is an ongoing process, and just when we think we've figured it out, life has its way of throwing us a ton of curve balls-but that's why its called a journey.
