Low Carb Noodles

Good ‘ole fashioned, gluten-full pasta is hard to beat. Buuuut… this option might just be a very close second.

Need to sneak a few extra veggies into your day? Eat enough veggies each day? Either way, eating spiralized veggies is just too much fun! + this recipe is a must try if you’re looking for a low-carb//(dare I say…) gluten-free option.

………………..

Don’t have a spiralizer? Don’t know where to start? There are many options available to fit any price range. Perhaps, start with the simplest of spiralizers, until you find that your addiction is real!

The options range from a Julienne peeler, to a hand held spiralizer, all the way to a tabletop veggie pasta maker.

I use the Veggetti, available for just $14.99 & it gets the job done with ease! (+ it’s sure to make you laugh every time you say Veggetti out loud.)

Baked, Never Fried, Asian Tofu

I’ve always found cooking tofu to be an impossible task, therefore, I’ve somewhat avoided making my own tofu at all costs.

(If this sounds like you, read on…)

BUT, after much trial & error, I think I’ve found the ultimate solution.

I simply can’t get enough of this stuff… With veggies, served over rice, both?!

Marinating is key. The tofu soaks up so much flavor + packs a small punch. So… For best results, allow up to 30 minutes to marinate your tofu.

Vegetable Korma

With a busy schedule (as I am sure most of us can relate), the only way for me to truly stay on track with clean eating is meal prep. I am not a huge fan of the traditional chicken + broccoli for lunch & dinner (5x a week) especially because I’m vegetarian, but more because its BORING!

This healthy combo has been one of my go-to recipes recently!

Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding

Simple. Creamy. Naturally Sweetened. & Perfect for breakfast, a snack, or a dessert. 
Chia seed pudding is a mini powerhouse of calcium, antioxidants and omega-3’s. + I’m a big fan of anything that I can pop into the fridge & have breakfast waiting for me in the morning! (ahem, 0vernight 0ats)
I’ve avoided making + eating Chia Pudding for as long as I can remember. I was always so unsure of what the texture would be like + what it would taste like, but after some research, I decided to take the plunge & I’m so glad that I did.
We’ve been hearing for what seems like years, how great Chia seeds are. Just last year, I shared their many benefits. Sprinkle them on top of salads, sandwiches, blend them into smoothies or use them as an egg replacement… the possibilities seem endless.

Organic: To Be or Not To Be?

foodiesfeed.com_red-carrots-at-farmers-marketOne of the most perplexing questions for even an accustomed grocery shopper is whether or not organic produce is worth the extra dollar. Organic foods offer a number of benefits, including lower pesticide exposure and a lessened environmental impact. In all honesty, buying organic can be expensive but you can get the most out of your next shopping trip by prioritizing which foods you should purchase organic.
Each year, The Environmental Working Group releases an annual dirty dozen list, which includes foods that you should buy organic. The group analyzes data about pesticide residue and ranks foods based on how much or little the samples have. It is important to note that some crops face high numbers of fungus and insect threats, therefore prompting farmers to use more pesticides.
Often times, a cocktail of pesticide residues remain on the food after we purchase them and when we consume them, doesn’t that sound yummy?
Find out some of the worst pesticide residue culprits below! The list contains a culmination of the most recent dirty dozen list along with some additions.
