Inspiring healthier eating one dish at a time

Freekeh-licious Corn and Tomato Salad

You know it’s summer when you find fresh, farmstand corn and tomatoes, and this salad is the perfect way to show them both off!

Picking a favorite summer vegetable is kind of like picking a favorite child when they’re all on their very best behavior, don’t you think?  There is no other time of the year when they ALL taste SO GOOD!  That’s exactly how I feel about this corn and tomato dinner salad. Continue Reading..

Grilled Tandoori Turkey Salad with Creamy Curry Dressing

Don’t limit turkey to the holidays!  It’s a perfect choice for summer grilling and it turns this savory and sweet salad into a quick summer meal.

Thank you to the National Turkey Federation for sponsoring this post and inspiring this recipe!

I was thinking the other day, that turkey doesn’t get nearly enough love. Not the kind of turkey from the deli, but the home-cooked kind that steals the spotlight on one important day of the year (and maybe shows up once more for Christmas), but then quietly takes a back seat somewhere in the poultry section…   We should change that, and include turkey in our summer festivities too, don’t you think?  How about we let a new bird take over the grill this summer?

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.

Tuna & Freekeh Tabouli Salad

Solid white albacore tuna is a perfect protein addition to this whole grain tabouli salad. Pack some of this heart-healthy Mediterranean deliciousness in a mason jar for a healthy lunch tomorrow!

I’ve never been a big fan of deli sandwiches for lunch – you? There are only so many variations of a turkey or chicken breast sandwich that I can think of. And the really fancy ones take a bit more time to make than I can spare in the morning or middle of the day. Plus, the latest news about processed meats has given me yet another reason to work on adding more plant-based meals and unprocessed proteins to my menu. Continue Reading..


Summer Green Bean Salad with Grilled Halloumi

Oh hi, and happy second day of summer!  I hope your days are already full of warm sunshine, deep blue skies and sleeping in a bit later than usual 🙂  I ran into my old friends Green Beans and Halloumi the other day when I was at Whole Foods, and we decided to have a lovely summer salad for dinner.

Have you ever had grilled Halloumi?  If you’re not quite sure what I’m talking about, I’ll explain, because I remember the first time I ever saw it on a menu and thought, WT (heck) and I just jumped in and tried it.  I ordered it in a restaurant and honestly, I thought maybe it was a type of fish… I didn’t want to appear un-foodie-like, so I just went with it, and pretended I’ve eaten it all of my life.  Turns out it’s cheese.   Continue Reading..
