This vegetarian Thai green curry is made with chickpeas, ginger, garlic, turmeric, green curry paste, and lemongrass. The ultimate bowl of healthy comfort food to eat when you’re feeling under the weather.

Do you know when you start feeling a little sick — the feeling that something just isn’t quite right? Well, I had that last week. A slight fever crept in and my glands started to swell. Immediately I could tell that my body needed rest and a healthy dose of anti-inflammatory, disease-fighting food.

So of course, Thai green curry was on the dinner menu. And guess what? It worked. The next day I woke up feeling bright, energized and so much better. Thus, it was crowned the name ‘healing thai green curry’… with a few other descriptors in there too, I suppose.

The best vegetarian enchiladas you’ll ever eat: Sweet Potato Black Bean Enchiladas packed with flavor and topped with an amazing avocado lime sauce. Make them for dinner tonight!

If I could have my mom cook all the food served at my wedding, I would. She’s the best cook I know. Not just only she’s my mom, but because she makes food from the heart. You know food with flavors that speak to your soul from the very first bite. She’s innovative, creative and never afraid to dream up something delicious.

Every other day I get an email from her with a photo of what she made that day. From granola bread (OMG!) to coconut milk wild rice soup, she’s always thinking up something new.

Banana bread pancakes that are perfectly sweet, fluffy and nutritious. Made with whole wheat flour and dairy free too!

Safe to say, I’m learning everything there is about being a first-time homeowner. Including when your oven breaks and you have to call the repair man to fix it. Who knew home repairs could be so ridiculously expensive?

Now that the oven is finally working again, I can get back to meal prep from the Healthy Glow Co. — that means these banana bread pancakes are on the menu this week.

Low carb chicken zucchini enchilada bake with layers upon layers of creamy, flavorful goodness: Refried beans, cheese, chicken, zucchini and a homemade enchilada sauce!

Zucchini party should be a legit thing that people have. You get together with all your friends who have a zucchini surplus, make various zucchini recipes and walk aways with different delicious meals.

Only suggesting this because readers are often emailing me asking what to do with their zucchini. I’m not sure if you guys are buying it in bulk or what, but there’s my suggestion for you: an epic #zucchiniparty.

Healthy chicken pot pie — made with  a comforting homemade whole grain flaky crust and an amazing sauce made with almond milk & chicken broth instead of butter and cream!

When you’re going all the time, sometimes it’s hard to catch your breath and take in the beautiful things surrounding you. And my oh my, there are so many wonderful things to appreciate. People, different cultures, talents, successes (others and my own), the changing seasons, a comfortable bed to sleep in, the unconditional love I feel for my fiancé.

The world is changing. Right before our eyes. And at an epic speed that sometimes feels out of control and helpless. Read more.

Outrageously delicious & healthy sweet potato BBQ turkey meatloaf stuffed with sharp cheddar cheese. Easy to make and bound to become a dinner staple!

This weekend was rejuvenating in the best way. I slept in on Saturday, sipped on my hot morning coffee with vanilla almond milk, enjoyed an RXBar, then left for an intense workout. Afterwards I came home with a mission to get organized and just spend some time alone. Can I just say how freakin’ good it felt?!

Kale waldorf salad with chopped chicken breast, avocado, goat cheese, tart cranberries, apples and crunchy toasted walnuts. Tossed in an easy light balsamic vinaigrette for the most delicious healthy lunch or dinner.

Of course my first recipe of 2017 is bound to be a salad. Hashtag #typical?

To be completely honest with you, I don’t eat as many salads as I used to. I remember when I basically lived at the Whole Foods salad bar for lunch and dinner. My memories of the salad bar are fond; the cajun roasted sweet potatoes, sesame broccoli and detox kale salad tasted like pure gold after a workout.

First of all, thank you for the love and support on my post last week. I can’t tell you how much it lifted up my spirits and brought tears to my eyes. Even though the post was incredibly difficult to publish, your encouragement and overwhelming positivity never ceases to amaze me. In fact, it’s given me inspiration to keep on writing what’s in my heart and bringing more life stories back into my posts. Part two will come very soon, I promise.

In the meantime, I’ve been a busy little lady. I spent the weekend in Minneapolis with Lee and Katie freezing my booty off and working on Healthy Glow Co and Healthy Glow Guide content planning. I’m feeling more inspired than ever.

Peruvian Chicken Drumsticks are marinated with lime, garlic, peruvian spices and yogurt then baked to perfection and drizzled with an avocado lime sauce! Serve with brown rice or plantain chips for a full meal.

When my Grandma and I get on the phone it’s usually an hour convo about what she’s cooking for her friends or how she’s been swimming and going to zumba.

She’s my spirit animal and she makes the best muffins you’ll ever eat. Big, fat amazing blueberry muffins that melt in your mouth. Oh and her raisin bran muffins? TO DIE FOR. Especially with a little pat of creamy butter.

Golden Turmeric Chicken Soup with chickpeas and sweet potatoes will be your go-to winter soup! Flavored with ginger, garlic, coconut milk and a touch of peanut butter. 381 calories & 33g protein per serving!

Brrrrrrrrr. Is the polar vortex back or something because this weather isn’t jiving with my soul. I’m writing to you bundled up like I’m going into the arctic: I’ve got on Tony’s oversized Nike sweatpants, fluffy warm socks and a shirt that doesn’t match anything.

The upside? I reheated a big bowl of this warm turmeric chickpea chicken soup and it’s fantastic as ever, even on the third day.
