Chocolate Raspberry Smoothie Bowl

Chocolate Raspberry Smoothie Bowl | Foodinary

Today we’re talking about smoothie bowl recipes. One of the best smoothie tips I’ve ever received is to always use frozen fruit instead of fresh because it eliminates the need for ice.  Therefore, the tiny freezer in my apartment is now 80% frozen fruit – 20% other stuff.  The problem that many people run into […]

Easy Matcha Energy Balls

Easy Matcha Energy Balls | Foodinary

In my opinion, one of the hardest parts about healthy eating is healthy snacking.  It’s not that I don’t love carrot sticks and hummus, apple slices, homemade trail mix, etc. – but variety is just so important. Traditional energy or granola bars from most stores are chalk full of 20+ ingredients that you may not […]

Simple Homemade Granola

Simple Homemade Granola | Foodinary

This weekend’s recipe is my simple homemade granola.  I used to always buy granola from the grocery store, but as I continue to strive toward a kitchen free of artificial ingredients, creating a delicious recipe of my own was must. The recipe I’m sharing with you today is pretty much as simple as it gets.  […]

Crispy Roasted Chickpeas

Crispy Roasted Chickpeas | Foodinary

Healthy snacks can be tough.  I mean, one can only have so many sittings of carrots and hummus. Sometimes, you just really crave something crispy and salty, but you’re trying to stay away from the potato chips screaming your name from the pantry. But seeing as how it is January and many of us are […]

Black Bean and Corn Salad

Black Bean and Corn Salad | Foodinary

Hello Friends! It has been a while since my last appearance here on Foodinary.  It has not been from a lack of cooking (or eating for that matter!) but from lack of passion for blogging.  I am a firm believer that if something isn’t bringing me joy, I would much rather focus my energies elsewhere. […]

Carrot and Walnut Muffins

This past weekend I saw a roadside farmer’s stand selling humungous bags of carrots.  There is no possible way I could have ever hoped to make enough baked goods, juice, and salads in time to use up all of those carrots before they went bad so I opted out.   However, I did feel inspired […]

Kale and Melon Green Juice

Kale and Melon Green Juice

In this season of picnics and barbecues, it can be very easy to overeat.  Now don’t get me wrong, I adore eating ribs, burgers, brats, pasta salad, you name it – but sometimes it can leave you feeling a little stuffed.  After a weekend filled with this heavy but delicious fare I like to make […]

French Lentil Salad

French Lentil Salad

Lentils aren’t something that I typically cook up in my kitchen.  Mostly because I don’t have many recipes in my repertoire that taste that great…  So I honestly had written off these little legumes until I read “My Paris Kitchen” by David Lebovitz I received this superb cookbook from my cousin, Sam, this past Christmas. […]

Hearty Green Salad with Roasted Pears

Green Salad with Pears

Who says a salad can’t be a little indulgent? When I first started this hearty green salad, I wasn’t quite sure how it would taste.  I like all like all of the ingredients separately, but wasn’t sure how they would meld as a unit.  This salad is a combination of baby spinach and kale, black […]
