If there is one food I could never get tired of eating, it’s strawberries. I just adore them, and it’s rare that I go a day without having some for breakfast. But honestly, they are SO much more flavorful when they’re in season, so when they made their debut at the Dallas Farmer’s Market, I […]

Chili Lime Salmon with Strawberry Mint Salsa

This recipe can be classified under “throwing things together and praying it’s edible”, but let me tell you- I was SHOCKED at how this turned out. I was really craving something that resembled lasagna, but my stomach doesn’t do well with tomatoes, so I really had to think outside the box. And then I found […]

Eggplant Ratatouille Bake

vegan pasta

If there is one thing I have learned through studying nutrition, it is that no one diet or lifestyle is the “best.” Our bodies are all wildly different in their nutritional needs, and we have the freedom to tailer our diet to fit our specific needs. As long as whole, fresh foods from the earth […]

Vegan Spring Greens Pasta Salad

I don’t know about you, but I have been loving zucchini more than usual this summer. It’s such a versatile veggie- add it to any stir fry, make noodles, or hide it in your smoothie for an extra dose of filling fiber. And the best part is, the summer abundance means it’s extra cheap. That’s […]

Spinach and Turkey Meatballs + Zucchini Pasta Primavera

It’s SUMMER which means all the peaches are ripe, sweet, and begging to make their way into your dinner menu. And just in time for the 4th! How can you resist?! This play on classic caprese (kah-preh-say) salad is such a stunning yet simple main dish to serve at a backyard barbecue or on a […]

Peach Caprese Chicken

I am so excited to share some of the recipes from the new Abundantly More Magazine created by a sweet friend as a way to showcase the profound Gospel implications in simple, everyday life. I got to share a bit of my food philosophy in the magazine… “Any place there is joy, there is God. And […]

Smoky Chicken Tortilla-less Tacos with Mango Salsa

Consider this Shrimp & Grits’ fancier, more health-conscious cousin from California. I went to the beach with my family recently, and this was my first time trying scallops. Like fish, they’re nice and light, but with a bit more bite like shrimp. This dish still has all the flavor of its traditional southern comfort food […]

Seared Scallops with Spicy Cauliflower Grits & Greens

This is seriously the most satisfying soup. The spice of the curry paste is perfectly balanced by the creamy coconut milk, and the textures of the soft sweet potatoes with the slightly crunchy kale leaves nothing to be desired. Makes about 6 servings! Coconut Curry Chicken Soup Ingredients: 2 lbs. chicken tenders 1 T. ghee […]

Coconut Curry Chicken Soup

This salad is so light and fresh, but hearty and satisfying at the same time. Typically, I pair arugula with sweet fruits, but this is my favorite savory combo when I want to reset my sweet tooth. It’s full of so many different textures to keep you entertained until the last bite. Keep as a side, or add protein […]

Savory Arugula Salad

Quite possibly the ultimate summer dish. I can’t tell you how many times I made this last summer with my neighbor’s fresh peaches. The sweet peaches and blueberries pair perfectly with the tangy maple dijon dressing, and the richness from the goat cheese and avocado team up with the heartiness of the grain to bring […]
