I've got a new Chewy Pecan & Hazelnut Granola headed your way soon. Making a batch of granola on Sunday night is a great way to have a protein packed snack or easy addition to your breakfast all week long. I sprinkle granola on coconut milk yogurt, oatmeal and on top of smoothies. These pecans and hazelnuts are getting me excited to start testing holiday recipes. Anyone else ready for holiday baking? xx
Tacos! As a kid, Taco Night was the highlight of my week. I just made these fun guacamole tacos and I can't wait to share the recipe with you soon. I get a lot of questions on how to make dinner easier and how to cut the sugar from your recipes so I'm teaming up with @greatist to #cutthesugar and sharing a few of my tips below. 🌮 Skip the packaged tacos sauce and seasoning, which are often loaded with refined sugar and use hot sauce, spices like cayenne and chili powder, and fresh herbs like basil and cilantro to enjoy natural sweetness without the sugar! 🌮 A simple way to make tacos 10x quicker is to have your veggies pre-chopped or purchase then pre-chopped. Add naturally sweet veggies so you don't crave sugar after dinner. Carrots are a great topping! 🌮 If you're in a pinch you can also buy your guacamole from somewhere you love...for me it's @wholefoods...their guac is over the top good when I don't have time to make it myself or if my avocados aren't ripe, I buy theirs. Most premade guacamole has added sugar in it so be sure to check your labels. 🌮 I caramelize a few onions each week and keep them stored in my fridge to quickly add flavor to recipes so all I did here was saute the cooked onions again for a little bit to warm them up and then added the naturally sweet and tender onions to these tacos for more sweet flavor. 🌮 I like to use tomatilios to keep my tacos in place when they're served so they don't fall over and fall apart. Plus, they make a cute presentation for guests. What are your favorite ingredients to add to tacos?
New || Yellow Carrot, Roasted Brussels Sprouts & Pecan Salad. Pecans are so underrated. Unless it’s Thanksgiving, who uses pecans? ME! That’s who. Even though summer is over this weekend, it doesn’t mean that you have to say good-bye to your favorite veggies and make an amazing dressing that can go right on top of them in less than 5 minutes. No need to slave over making a homemade dressing. Just grab a jar of almond butter or tahini as I’ve used in many other recipes and mix it with minced garlic, sea salt, pepper, and then either lemon, lime, orange or grapefruit juice. I promise you- you’ll save money on a bottled dressing and it’s delish. The combo of almond butter with roasted veggies and salad greens is quite possibly my favorite new thing. I’ve been eating like this since the spring and I can’t get enough. I’m not sick of it yet, haha. And I have a feeling you’re going to love it, as well. Dive in, have fun and serve this salad to your friends and family to celebrate Labor Day. Tap @TheHealthyApple for a clickable link to this recipe. Enjoy! xx
Remember those fun little Fairytale eggplants I posted few days ago? Well, here they are post roasting and dazzled with a new 'creamy' green sauce that's almost too good to be true. Go buy 'em while they're still in season in your food store or farmers market. Full recipe headed your way soon! xx
Never have I ever eaten a Gherkin. Have You? They're pretty cute and look like mini watermelons. Check my Insta stories for all my farmers market scenes today... Happy Saturday! xx
