I got hooked on purple sweet potatoes a few months back after seeing a recipe on Pinterest. Since I remain obsessed with my spiralizer, naturally, my first thought on how to prepare these new-to-me potatoes was of course to make swooddles (get it…sweet potato noodles…ok maybe not ūüôā

Recipe recap: Superfoods Bowl

With the end of the year approaching, we thought it would be neat to reflect back on some of our most popular recipes. This recipe was tailored for popular fall fruits and vegetables, but with winter now officially here, try switching it up for a few current seasonal options. Remember: the more colorful your dish is, the greater range of nutrients you are eating!

  • For fruit toppings, consider oranges, pears, avocados, grapefruit, and cranberries as a replacement for or in addition to pomegranate seeds.
  • For¬†veggie options besides cucumbers or squash, try beets, sweet potatoes, cauliflowers, shaved Brussels sprouts, radishes, snow peas, or¬†broccoli.
  • For additional toppings, consider pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, walnuts or almonds for an added crunch!
  • For other grain options besides brown rice, give quinoa or farro a shot!
  • For other dressing options, try making your own balsamic vinaigrette {1/4 cup balsamic vinegar, (optional 1 tsp brown sugar), 1 Tbsp chopped garlic, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp pepper, 1/2 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil} or substituting¬†fresh grapefruit juice for the fresh lemon juice in our Superfoods bowl dressing recipe.

Citrus Herb Roasted Chicken

This time of year, it seems like we are usually in need of a tasty¬†entree to take to an event¬†or are hosting others¬†at our¬†dinner table. The task of creating a menu or choosing an entree large enough to feed a group of people can be daunting. I found this Citrus Herb Roasted Chicken recipe and knew I had to recreate it! The recipe is simple and perfect for a large group, as you can easily adjust the amount of chicken you are cooking. But, even for just two people, the recipe is an easy meal¬†to make. One of the best parts is that you can make enough to have¬†lunch or¬†dinner leftovers for later on! It was a hit in our home, and I’m excited to share it with our HBH readers.

Quick Dinner: Almond Crusted Fish

With the holidays coming up, it’s becoming harder to plan and prepare meals at home with the abundance of activities at nighttime. Whether these obligations¬†are errands to run, school performances, or family get togethers, the nights that are available¬†to cook at home always seems to dwindle during this time of the year. It’s important to continue to plan and prep ahead of time and choose meals that are going to quick and easy but still healthy. I previously talked about one of my favorite “go-to” meals when time is short – Panko Crusted Chicken. Today, I’m back with another favorite of ours – Almond Crusted Fish.

Eggplant Chili

This flavorful chili is the perfect meal to kick off fall and winter with its easy prep and cleanup! And, the eggplant provides a heartiness that you will not miss if you choose to make it meatless.

Cooler weather and chili seem to go hand in hand. Whenever our temperatures drop, it is one of the first dishes I make. ¬†Growing up, chili was the meal we ate every Halloween evening, so it only seemed natural to continue the theme of chili as a ‘kickoff meal’ to fall! It’s also a perfect dish to simmer on a Sunday afternoon and have for the week to eat off of for lunch or dinner. I wanted to add a spin to the typically chili recipe by adding additional vegetables and using ground turkey for my meat-lovin’ husband, and I think my Eggplant Chili is a new favorite of ours! This dish could be easily made vegetarian/vegan by eliminating the ground turkey and using chickpeas in place of kidney beans for that extra protein punch!
