Double Chocolate Nutella Muffins (Gluten Free)

Anyone else have a lot of memories eating Nutella as a child?  I do!  And I’m so excited about this “healthier” gluten free recipe for Nutella muffins. With healthier swaps, such as almond milk, coconut oil, gluten free flour, and maple syrup instead of sugar, this is sure to be a crowd pleaser! I had such a great time making this recipe last weekend. My … Read More Double Chocolate Nutella Muffins (Gluten Free)

Curry Cauliflower Salad

I’ve been working on being more consistent about meal prepping.  And I have to say that the last couple weeks, I’ve been ROCKING IT. This week, I made curried cauliflower which should last me about 5 salads this week. In this bowl: Spinach dressed with olive oil and lemon juice chickpeas tossed in cumin baked curry cauliflower grape tomatoes raisins almonds 1/2 avocado


Breakfast bowl with sweet potatoes, rice, and avocado

Yesterday was a perfect day in Sarah-Land.  I visited the holy mecca that is Whole Foods, meal-prepped sweet potatoes, mushroom wild rice, banana walnut muffins, and made some BANGIN’ chicken soup in my crockpot (recipe to come). Those 3 hours that I spent meal-prepping means extravagant breakfasts for the rest of the week. In this bowl: Kale dressed with olive oil and lemon juice … Read More Breakfast bowl with sweet potatoes, rice, and avocado


Salad for Breakfast

I’ve been drinking a lot of home-made chai lattes lately because I’ve been trying to limit my coffee intake.  Coffee can increase my anxiety because of the caffeine.  I think I feel better when I start my day with tea.  I am able to hyper-focus on what needs to get done, rather than being stuck in my thoughts. I’m a big fan of what … Read More Salad for Breakfast

Thanksgiving Sweet Potato Casserole

I don’t need an excuse to eat more sweet potatoes… but if I did, Thanksgiving would be a good one.  Sweet potato casserole is an American Thanksgiving tradition.  And the good news is that this is the easiest Thanksgiving dish to prepare of all time.  Beyond just making some room in the oven, there’s not much else to it. I grew up eating sweet … Read More Thanksgiving Sweet Potato Casserole


Spinach & Sweet Potato Vegan Salad

I usually eat at least one salad every day. Because I meal prepped the rice and sweet potatoes for this recipe, this salad took under 5 minutes to prepare. When I say I eat a salad a day, I’m talking about salads that have protein, carbohydrates (yes, carbs!), healthy fats, fiber etc…the type of salad where you’re not hungry for an entire pizza afterwards. I … Read More Spinach & Sweet Potato Vegan Salad


Gluten & Dairy Free Chocolate Chip Spinach Muffins

Looking for a gluten free, dairy free, and healthy muffin recipe that cures a sweet tooth?  I’m obsessed with these new dairy and soy free chocolate chips that I bought from amazon and decided to make a batch of chocolate chip spinach muffins over the weekend. I love baking on the weekends.  For some reason, I don’t mind meal prepping during the week.  But … Read More Gluten & Dairy Free Chocolate Chip Spinach Muffins


Chickpea Breakfast Tacos

When I moved from Texas at 18, I was astounded to find out that breakfast tacos were not as common of a breakfast in other parts of the county.  Not quite the American staple I thought it was. And while I do love to treat myself with a good east coast bagel every now and then, nothing beats breakfast tacos.  Plus they’re gluten free! … Read More Chickpea Breakfast Tacos

Gluten Free Zucchini Bread Pudding

Zucchini bread is grandma’s classic. My mom says that stuffing breads with vegetables was considered virtually the same as a side of vegetables growing up. While the thought of that makes me shiver, this is definitely a healthy alternative to straight up bread.   I typically sweeten my baked goods with applesauce and maple syrup. I’ve made this recipe with both maple syrup and … Read More Gluten Free Zucchini Bread Pudding

PB&J Gluten Free Oat Muffins

I’m pretty sure I ate a PB&J sandwich for lunch every day in grades 1 through 5. Listen, my mom loved me and everything. It was a different time, people. Moms weren’t sending their kids to school with grass fed, certified organic, wild caught, gluten free, dairy free [insert trendy hippie food here]…even in Austin. (s/o to my hometown)   After 5 years of … Read More PB&J Gluten Free Oat Muffins
