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.

How to Make a Moscow Mule

How to Make a Moscow Mule

The Moscow Mule has to be my favorite cocktail of 2015.  It has just 3 simple ingredients but packs a punch of flavor. The Moscow Mule became popular in the 1950s when Jack Morgan, owner of the Cock ‘n’ Bull restaurant in Los Angeles, was trying to push more Ginger Beer.  Ginger Beer is not […]

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 […]

Comfort in Cabbage

IMG_5683

What makes something a “comfort food”? Is it the feeling of familiarity? The memories? The richness? The simplicity? To tell you the truth-I don’t exactly know the definition, but I asked my roommates, Emily and Andrea, their thoughts.  Andrea told me all about her grandma’s macaroni and cheese with a big smile on her face, […]

Cumin-Roasted Carrots

IMG_5650

Don’t you love all the fresh produce that comes out of the garden during the summer? Everything from crisp pea pods, tender green beans, plump cherry tomatoes and those skinny little carrots.  Have you ever compared the size of the carrots that come out of the garden to those you find in the supermarket? There […]
