    Vegan Rainbow Wrap

    I am so excited to share this rainbow wrap recipe with you today, because it is one of my favorite lunch recipes and it is really fast and easy to make! Bonus points for being vegan and portable. Wraps are easy to pack as a lunch or take on-the-go. Inside of this healthy vegan rainbow wrap is roasted red pepper hummus, quinoa, shredded carrots, shredded cabbage, avocado, and spinach. I am sure there are many other ingredients you could add to it. Here is a super helpful tip: prep all of the ingredients you can beforehand, so when you are making your wrap it is grab-and-go. For example, I cook…

    Peruvian Aji Verde Sauce

    My new favorite summer sauce, this spicy Peruvian green sauce is perfect for anything you put on the grill. Aji verde sauce is great on meats, veggies, breads, french fries or even as a salad dressing if you are adventurous! Aji means chili pepper, and this spicy green sauce is made with jalapeño. Please note, this recipe is not authentic, it is only my version that uses similar ingredients that you would find in an aji verde sauce. Traditional aji verde is made wit huacatay, or black mint. Black mint is a difficult herb to find in the US, so I used mint instead. Not exactly the same, but I…

    Strawberry Nice Cream

    What is your favorite nice cream flavor? My whole family loves nice cream, and strawberry is one of our top favorites. If you have not tried nice cream before, it is similar to ice cream except instead of heavy whipping cream, frozen bananas are used to make a creamy base. Then, it is flavored with any flavorings you want! The key to perfect nice cream that doesn’t turn out to be a drippy mess is frozen ingredients and a good appliance. I have used a few different blenders/appliances to make nice cream, and hands down the Thermomix® is the best – it is a beast! The motor handles the frozen…

    Healthy Summer Meal Plan 1

    Ever since I had my second baby, Sofia, life became much more busy and all things led to having more structure and organization in my life! I began spending each Sunday evening on Cookidoo® using the weekly meal planning tool to plan out healthy meals for my family for the upcoming week {I have a YouTube video on how to do that here, if you are interested}. Once I have my meals planned out, I spend a few hours on Monday mornings preparing my meals the best that I can. I do the chopping and cooking of any foods that will last in the fridge for a few days or…

  • Simple Pesto Gemelli

    Simple Pesto Gemelli

    Some days, all I need is a simple pasta dish for lunch. Gemelli is one of my favorite types of pasta, and find it goes great with pesto sauce. I love how the sauce gets stuck inside the little twists! It is delicious tossed together with a fresh, homemade pesto sauce (although you can use store-bought to make things easier), and cherry tomatoes and quartered artichoke hearts. Artichokes are known for two health benefits: antioxidants and fiber. The heart is the most flavorful part! Artichoke hearts go well with pastas and on top of pizza. What is your favorite way to eat them? The pesto can be made in a…
