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.

Strawberry Cake Batter Overnight Oats

I used to skip breakfast, solely because I am not a morning person {at all}.  Just getting myself ready and out the door on time is a small victory each day!  My husband will wake up and eat breakfast at our dining room table, but I find ways to maximize my sleep in the morning so I can get up in just enough time to make it to work. I can’t be the only person that’s like this?!

Once I learned the importance of eating breakfast, I made it a priority to eat something in the morning that will jumpstart my body and metabolism. My desire to get in a few extra minutes of sleep led me on a quest to find healthy, quick breakfasts that I could even take with me. After having what seemed like a million KIND bars, I was ready for some variety… cue: overnight oats!
