Easy Garlic Broccoli

Easy Garlic Broccoli

This is an easy and delicious side dish consisting of only 3 ingredients.

Wanting to try something different and not wanting to make yet another disappointing broccoli dish for this week's lunches, I decided to get fancy and add garlic to my broccoli this time around. 

The result? I was not disappointed and I did not reek.

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).

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!

How to Make Healthier Popcorn

How to Make Healthier Popcorn

This 2-ingredient recipe is from my popcorn-lovin' boyfriend!

Up until a few months ago, he was eating microwave popcorn that was filled with "artificial flavors" and "natural flavors" and who knows what else.

After having done my cleanse a couple of times and experiencing for himself how much better he feels when he eats higher quality foods, he has been upgrading his diet so that it's as close to real food as possible...even when it comes to snacks like this.

Creamy Cauliflower Potato Soup

Creamy Cauliflower Potato Soup

When I find something I like, I will keep eating it until I get sick of it. For instance, I've been making my Sweet Potato Butternut Squash Soup every single week for about the last 3 months. It's so ridiculously good! Some days I'd drink it like soup and other days, I'd mix it with veggies as if it were a sauce.

Last week, I decided to branch out and see what would happen if I used the same recipe but swapped out the sweet potato with a regular potato and replace the butternut squash with a head of cauliflower.
