Easy Thai Coconut Curry Vegetables {Meatless Monday}

Fastest and easiest Thai food you’ll ever make and so perfect for Meatless Monday.  You may never need to order out again!

Ever since I moved to Arizona almost 2 years ago, I’ve been totally immersed in the deliciousness of Mexican food.  I’m sure people in Texas and California, and probably New Mexico would argue, but we have the most Ah-Mazing Mexican food here.  And margaritas – holy wow!  My new favorite is a mango-jalapeno margarita at a place down the street.

I’ve been so entranced by the Mexican food, that I totally forgot about my other favorites, and recently I realized I’ve been missing really good Thai food.  I haven’t seen ANY Thai restaurants in my travels.  Zip.  None.  Nada.  So a few weeks ago I went on a hunt.  I happily found a pretty decent Thai restaurant, but it’s a good 30-minute drive. Multiple sad faces to that. 🙁 🙁 Continue Reading..


Farmer’s Market Pasta Salad with Lemon-Herb Buttermilk Dressing

This delicious pasta salad is full of the first vegetables of the season – a perfect way to savor the flavor of eating right, during National Nutrition Month, and all year long.

Ask anyone why they eat the things they do, and I’ll bet you the number one answer will be “because it tastes good.”  Maybe you’ll get an occasional “because it’s good for me”, but more than likely it’s all about taste.  And it should be!  Good food tastes good.

Mediterranean Grilled Vegetable Salad

What’s that saying… “If you build it, they will come”?  Well, I think it’s that way with vegetables.  I’m pretty sure most of us don’t eat enough because of the prep work and cooking involved.  Sure, there’s always raw carrots, and peppers, and cucumbers, but don’t they just get old after a while?  But if you could have delicious cooked and seasoned vegetables all ready to go, you’d eat them, right?

In the winter, I try to roast a big pan of vegetables, so I’ll have them for a few nights. I love the Brussels sprouts and squash combo for fall, and the lemon and garlic roasted vegetables for late winter.  But in the late spring through summer, the oven is off, and the grill is on, so that means grilled vegetables, which are so easy.  My favorite is always asparagus, but when I have a good variety of vegetables available, I think it’s worth it to cut them all up, brush them with a little olive oil and Italian seasoning, and grill away for the week.  A delicious way to eat a few extra servings of vegetables.

The Secret To a Better Stir-Fry

 

Stir-Fry dishes are a great way to add more healthy vegetables into your diet, and they’re usually pretty quick and easy to make – especially if you take advantage of precut veggies at the supermarket and quick cooking chicken breast. However, if you’re usually less than thrilled with your version of “homemade Chinese food” because of tough, rubbery chicken, here’s a great tip… Continue Reading..
