Lentil Bruschetta Dip

Lentil Bruschetta Dip

My friend, Christine, told me about this recipe on our walk the other day. I was telling her about how I bought the pre-cooked, ready-to-eat Steamed Lentils from Trader Joe's and didn't know what the heck to do with them. "Emily, you have GOT to try the Lentil Bruschetta Dip. It's a thing now. It's gone viral."

Toasted Pecan Dessert (for One)

Toasted Pecan Dessert (for One)

The other night after dinner, I was craving something sweet. Since I don't keep any pre-made sweets at home, I have to make dessert if I want dessert! So with only 4 ingredients, I came up with something simple that I'm going to share with you today.

The portion size is teeny tiny, but just enough to satisfy your taste buds.

What's awesome is that this dessert is high in fat and protein (so it'll fill you up) and it's cleanse-friendly (so you won't feel bloated or experience a sugar hangover afterward).

How to Survive Social Situations (Sober!)

How to Survive Social Situations (Sober!)

I'm a total lightweight when it comes to alcohol.

I've always had a super low tolerance (which has gotten even lower with age) and these days I rarely drink at all.

The Ultimate Veggie Egg Bake

The Ultimate Veggie Egg Bake

If you’ve been following me on Instagram, you may have noticed that I've posted some pictures of my weekly Veggie Egg Bake (which I make every Sunday night to enjoy Monday thru Friday).

A lot of these kinds of egg recipes I see floating around the internet are super skimpy when it comes to veggies...we're talkin' 75% eggs, 25% veggies. We can do better than that!

Tomato Avocado Cucumber Salad

Tomato Avocado Cucumber Salad

I love salads but sometimes I'm just not in the mood for lettuce, spinach or other leafy greens. I threw together this concoction and it came out so good that I ended up eating it two more times that same week!

The healthy fat from the avocado filled me up, the nutrients from the raw veggies gave me a ton of energy, and the combination of the different flavors and textures totally satisfied my taste buds. Plus, it's 100% cleanse-friendly so you won't feel gross or bloated afterward!
