Foodie Friday

Hey guys!! Happy Friday!!  I am off to the northeast today for my cousin’s wedding this weekend and I couldn’t be more excited!! But, I couldn’t leave you without showing you some of my favorite eats from lately! 

I am so grateful for the downtime recently that allows me to spend lots of time in my kitchen.  I truly enjoy crafting up new recipes and taste-testing along the way.  Don’t get me wrong, I love a simple, hassle free meal at the end of a long day too.

Kale salads galore!  I just can’t get over the beauty of a dark green kale salad with chopped red cabbage.  The color combination is lovely while the texture is key!  I love lots of textures in a salad and both of these ingredients make the salad crunchy and super filling.

Tuna.  I love tuna, canned or fresh.  Since I don’t eat meat, it is a great way for me to get protein into a meal and feel satisfied.  It has been on sale at my grocery store lately too so that is always a plus!  This piece was peppered on the edges, which gave it tons of flavor.  This large piece was under $10 and fed me and my husband for 2 meals each.  That is a pretty good deal if you ask me! I just simply grill it on my indoor grilling pan for about 2 minutes on each side and it is done!

Stuffed acorn squash.  Now that it is fall (well, not quite in Dallas), I am loving squash, pumpkin, and sweet potatoes even more than usual.  I love cutting an acorn squash in half and roasting it in the oven, while preparing some quinoa and sauteing whatever veggies I have on hand.  I then layer the quinoa and veggies (you could top with cheese too) and top it with homemade guacamole (can’t get enough!).

For a quick, healthy lunch lately I have been making lettuce wraps with ingredients I have in my fridge.  These had roasted tofu, beets, avocado, and corn.  Sooo good!

These ones had tofu, beets, avocado and quinoa for a little more staying power.  Did I mentioned I am obsessed with beets right now?  A little sea salt and I could eat them until my fingers were pink. 😉

See, I told you I’m obsessed.  Homemade guacamole goes with everything too! 🙂

  2. Do you like beets?
  3. Favorite fall vegetable?
